Diehard fans can rejoice--football season is back!

The Broncos will open their preseason in Arlington, Texas Thursday night, facing off against the Dallas Cowboys. The game can be watched right here on KKTV, beginning at 6:30 p.m.

With his second season starting, Tim Tebow insists he's a happy camper unfazed by his many critics who are blasting him over his inconsistent performances at the Denver Broncos training camp.

The popular but unpolished second-year pro from Florida is still trying to morph from a star college quarterback who relied on his legs and trademark jump pass into a drop-back, pocket passer in the pros.

Many expected him to be thrust into the starting role this season, but trade talks regarding Kyle Orton fizzled and Orton has been the clear No. 1 QB in Denver since the first day of camp.

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.

Tebow has drawn criticism far and wide but said he's keeping his head up. He used the word "fun" 11 times in a 5 1/2-minute chat with reporters coming off the field Wednesday.
