The Denver Broncos have told Tim Tebow is the starting quarterback, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson. Tebow will make his start against the Miami Dolphins on October 23 after the bye week in Miami; it will be homecoming for Tebow since the Dolphins will be honoring the 2009 Florida Gators team at halftime. He has replaced Kyle Orton as the starter. On Sunday, Tebow ran for a touchdown and threw for a touchdown against the San Diego Chargers. He went four of ten completions for 79 yards and ran for 38 yards. Tebow's footwork and throwing mechanics still remain a work in progress. His game is built around his multifaceted talents, instincts and his passion. In his 12 career games, Tebow has completed 45 of 92 passes (48.9%) for 733 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions. He has rushed for 264 yards and seven touchdowns. Tebow is 1-2 as a starter for the Broncos, and Orton was 12-21 as the starter.
