AFC West links: QB situation in Denver

7/14/2011

Denver Broncos

Jeff Legwold of The Denver Post: "[Tim] Tebow won't be handed the starting job. To be the Broncos' No. 1 quarterback on opening day, the former Heisman Trophy winner will have to earn that status by his performance in training camp and in preseason games."

Woody Paige's take on the Broncos' quarterback situation: "If the lockout isn't settled before the regular season starts, [Kyle] Orton will be the starter. [Coach John] Fox told me he must be a quarterback who can get away quick from under center. Tebow is still perfecting that art since he has run the shotgun his entire life."

Kansas City Chiefs

The bottom line when it comes to the 2011 Chiefs, according to the Sporting News: "Because of an upgraded schedule, the Chiefs may be a better team than last season but end up with an inferior record. Still, Kansas City will be tough to handle on a weekly basis and could challenge for a playoff spot again."

San Diego Chargers

The Chargers say they are as prepared as they possibly can be while waiting for the lockout to reach a conclusion.
