ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The latest debate raging around Tim Tebow is whether the Denver Broncos are doing all they can to give their raw quarterback every chance to succeed.
His pocket of protection has been disparaged and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy's play-calling has drawn criticism from fans and broadcasters alike.
A close look at the film, however, shows the Broncos have tailored their offense to Tebow's unorthodox skill set even though the results haven't been pretty.
In his two starts, a win over the Dolphins and a loss to the Lions, Tebow has been in the shotgun an average of 40 times and the Broncos have spread out their offense, using three wide receivers, an average of 50 times a game.
