After labeling him as a “work in progress” earlier in the week, Broncos head coach John Fox is doing his damnedest to give quarterback Tim Tebow a sense of prior familiarity in the offense.

During FOX’s NFL pregame show, Jay Glazer reported that Fox has revamped the Broncos’ offense to more of a college-style in an effort to better suit Tebow’s strengths — and possibly mask his weaknesses.

Tebow will operate out of more shotgun and spread formations, similar to the looks he experienced so much success with at the University of Florida.

In Week 7 against the Dolphins, Tebow earned his first career win as a starter, but was shaky for much of the day. He looked most comfortable when given the pass/run option on swings, screens, and other quick-drop passing plays, prompting Fox to implement a change.

Thus far, in the debut of their newfound change in scheme, Tebow is 2-10 passing for 30 yards, and has 8 yards on 2 carries against the Lions, who are currently leading by a touchdown.
