After addressing the announcement that the team waived quarterback Kyle Orton, Elway touched on the comments he made Monday regarding the long-term future of Tim Tebow.
“It’s a full body of work throughout the whole season,” Elway said. “That’s where we are with Tim. We’re going to continue to look where he is. Like I’ve said, he continues to make progress week-in and week-out.”
Elway said that process they will use to evaluate Tebow at the end of the season will be the same for every other player.
“It’s the case with everybody on our football team,” Elway said. “We’re going to look at the body of work throughout this season.”
But Elway said the team’s focus lies with more immediate matters.
“We got ourselves back in the playoff hunt so that’s our concentration, to win football games and hopefully win the division and get into the playoffs,” Elway said. “That’s the focus right now.”
Part of the reason the Broncos are in the thick of the playoff race is due to the solid play of the defense, notably Miller and Dumervil.
Miller leads all rookies with 9.5 sacks and Dumervil has notched 3.5 of his own in the last three games.
“With Von and Elvis, and the pass rush we’ve created, they really got into (Jets quarterback Mark) Sanchez’s face the other night,” Elway said.
