ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- The Denver Broncos have a quarterback controversy on their hands even if it's not much of a competition.

It features constant critiques and criticisms and more tweets than touchdowns.

And it boils down to this: Tim Tebow is much more popular, Kyle Orton is much more polished.

If Orton is disappointed about not being traded, he isn't showing it. Tebow keeps finding himself in the news even though he's not making much noise on the field.

Two weeks ago, Orton was on the trading block and Tebow had to figure this was his team. Orton showed up the next day, however, and within 48 hours, the Miami Dolphins had decided to go in another direction.

So, the Broncos were left with his $9 million contract and a pretty good quarterback.
