New Denver Broncos coach John Fox says Kyle Orton is his starter, not Tim Tebow.

In comments sure to rile the Tebow faithful, Fox said Thursday at his NFL scouting combine press conference in Indianapolis that if the season started today, he'd go with the more seasoned Orton.

That echoed comments made by new football chief John Elway at the Super Bowl.

Orton started the first 13 games last season but gave way to Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner and national college champion, for the final three games.

Former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels traded three draft picks to select the passionate but unpolished Tebow in the first round last year.
