ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Tim Tebow insists he's a happy camper unfazed by his many critics who are blasting him over his inconsistent performances at the Denver Broncos training camp.
The popular but unpolished second-year pro from Florida is still trying to morph from a star college quarterback who relied on his legs and trademark jump pass into a drop-back, pocket passer in the pros.
Many expected him to be thrust into the starting role this season, but trade talks regarding Kyle Orton fizzled and Orton has
been the clear No. 1 QB in Denver since the first day of camp.
Tebow has drawn criticism far and wide but said he's keeping his head up. He used the word "fun" 11 times in a 5½-minute chat with reporters coming off the field Wednesday.
