Does a change at quarterback offset a fourth loss in five weeks in Broncos Power Rankings around the web? Let’s find out. (Previous week’s ranking in parenthesis)

The calls for Tim Tebow have finally been answered. Will he change Denver’s fortunes?
FOX: 27th (27)
Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno are making for a nice one-two punch out of the backfield, but the big story will be the beginning of the Tim Tebow show in Denver. I’m not a believer, but you have to see what you’ve got in him, for better or worse.
CBS: 29th (28)
It’s Tim Tebow time. And you know what: It should be. Give him his chance. But he isn’t the answer.
National Football Post: 27th (29)
Tebow is the new starter in Denver. You think that will draw some extra attention to Broncos’ practices?

I HATE this cliche: “If you listen to the fans, you end up sitting with them.”
That’s completely bogus. With 24-hour sports networks, and tens of thousands of sports Web sites and blogs, fans (excluding the ones on GameCenter) are more educated than ever. Denver fans knew Kyle Orton sucked, and they knew Tebow would do a better job… and yet John Fox and John Elway sabotaged their 2011 season by not trading Orton away for a mid-round pick and keeping Tebow benched. Maybe they should have listened to the fans sooner.
