The fans may be calling for Tim Tebow. Denver Broncos coach John Fox isn't.

Fox said in a conference call Tuesday that he's sticking with Kyle Orton as his starting quarterback despite an awful performance by the offense in the Broncos' 23-20 loss to Oakland on Monday night that ended with fans chanting "Tebow! Tebow!" as players trudged off the field.

Orton misfired on almost half of his 46 passes, was picked off once and fumbled the ball away without getting hit when his tight end was open in the end zone for the go-ahead score in the fourth quarter.

Fox said it wasn't just Orton who was to blame for the poor play, adding, "Kyle is our starting quarterback."
