Jim Litke: Elway should zip it

Elway Looking for QB in the Wrong Places
www.nytimes.com

Picking a fight with a fan favorite when he’s on a roll isn’t just bad timing. Foolish as it sounded, that was Elway’s way of letting Tebow know he’s never going to be Denver’s franchise quarterback, no matter how well the rest of the season goes…[Releaseing Orton] was the organization’s way of signaling that the rebuilding effort can’t begin soon enough, even though Tebow has pulled the Broncos back to within a game of the Raiders for the top spot in the AFC West. The only people who don’t seem to have gotten the message are Tebow, his teammates and his fans…Elway doesn’t have to like it, but he has to learn to keep quiet. Or better still, say a few nice things about his QB and the surprising run his team is on, and even less about the college quarterbacks he’s still scouting.
