SI.com 2012 Prediction Has Broncos Challenging Tim Tebow With Veteran QB

There's still one game left in the 2011 NFL regular season and it appears that the Denver Broncos are committed to Tim Tebow as the 2012 starting quarterback. However, that has not been explicitly stated by anyone. John Elway has come close to it, but he has stopped short of saying that Tebow is the clear-cut answer at the position. And that's why Sports Illustrated's Chris Burke predicts the Broncos will bring in a veteran to challenge Tebow in training camp and to hound him during the regular season.
