Now that Tim Tebow has been announced as the Broncos' starting quarterback, expect to see a few changes in the team's offensive playbook. Though head coach John Fox and offensive coordinator Mike McCoy still want to have a run-first approach, the plan for Tebow will be different than the schemes run earlier in the season for Kyle Orton.

Tebow has a strong arm and has good mobility, but still has issues standing in the pocket and making throws with pressure in his face. Accuracy is also an issue with Tebow's side-arm delivery. Because of that, look for the Broncos to use more moving pockets, play-actions and deep routes, with many of the throws coming from outside the numbers. There also will be more designed QB runs called and plays out of the shotgun, to take better advantage of Tebow's greatest strengths. McCoy said it won't be a complete overhaul of the offense, but some adjustments to allow the second-year signalcaller to run the team more smoothly.

"There are always going to be one or two wrinkles you're going to throw in from week to week," McCoy said. "You might steal some from another team, or something that I've talked to Tim about that he's done in the past. We'll just take it one day at a time and just try to put a good plan together and let him have success, but we're not going to change our entire system."
