Of course CBS4 Broncos Insider Vic Lombardi had to ask him about the Broncos quarterback struggle. Would he go with Orton or Tebow?

“Kyle Orton is a good football player. I’ve watched him play at Purdue, I’ve watched him play for the Bears; he’s a good football player. The guy you got, people ask me about Tebow, I would play Tebow,” Ditka said. “That doesn’t make me right, but I would go to war with him because, as I said, you can’t coach character, and you can’t coach leadership, and he has those.”

Ditka said he doesn’t care if Tebow isn’t that great at throwing the football.

“Throw it underhand for all I care. The guys a winner,” Ditka said.

Watch the Southwest Airlines All Access this Sunday at 10:35 p.m. for an exclusive interview with Ditka.

    Why is this windbag even commenting on Tebow blows my mind- Remember he gave up a complete draft or Ricky 420 Williams. He is not even commited to this idea- “This doesnt make me right” The Broncos coachings staff will make the right choice.
