John Elway is saying all the right things. Last week, Elway declared that Broncos QB Tim Tebow "isn't going anywhere," while cleverly leaving out any mention of Tebow actually being the team's starter. Elway has had to walk a fine line all season long, making sure that Tebow lovers feel like their hero has gotten a fair shake from the organization, while maintaining the pragmatic view that Tebow probably isn't a long-term solution for his team. The stats aren't in Tebow's favor. He's completing less than half his passes. He's fumbled more often than all but two other starting QBs, and done so in far fewer games.

Bulky cast, injured thumb slowing Broncos' Miller
