Week 4 NFL Power Rankings: We Have A Tim Tebow Mention

Denver Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton had a chance to lead the Broncos to a second Music City Miracle with one final drive down the field. Unfortunately, Orton's pass was tipped at the line and intercepted, allowing the Titans to run out the clock. Orton is not winning games for the Broncos, which leads Pete Prisco at CBSSports.com to wonder (Broncos at No. 26 in his power rankings) for how much longer will the team put up with the quarterback:

Kyle Orton isn't getting it done down the field. Is it Tebow Time?

The answer, according to head coach John Fox, is not yet and who knows how long. Fox told reporters on Monday that Orton provides the Broncos "with the best chance to win." And if the Broncos don't win against Green Bay, does Orton still give the Broncos the best chance to win?

No reasonable person would claim that Tim Tebow gives the Broncos a better chance to win. What that person would be saying, however, is that Tebow provides something new and unexpected. The Broncos can find out what they have in Tebow or they can stick with Orton and know that he's not going to win games.
