Broncos mulling their 'options' with Tebow

The Denver Broncos decided to turn what Tim Tebow was most familiar with last Sunday into on-field success, allowing him to run some of the spread option attack that carried Florida to a pair of NCAA national championships while he was there.

It worked, as the Broncos rallied past the Raiders for a 38-24 victory, using the rushing of Tebow and running back Willis McGahee to grind up the Oakland defense. Now comes the question as to whether the Broncos should install even more of the option package to accommodate Tebow's skill set, which the Denver Post says the team is pondering.

It is clear that Tebow is still a work in progress as a pocket passer in a conventional pro-style offense, but as a passer/runner in the spread, Tebow showed that he can be dangerous like he was at Florida. The risks, of course, are that NFL defenses will soon begin to scheme more to stop the spread, and that the many hits Tebow takes in being a runner, will mean more risk for injury.

Of course, if Tebow does leave the game with a serious injury and the game plan has been centered around his unique abilities, what happens to that game plan if Kyle Orton or Brady Quinn has to come into the game?
