Fan base. Ticket sales.
It took them signing Peyton Manning to unseat Tim Tebow. And that might have been the only guy to have been able to do it from a fan base perspective.
They simply dropped Orton like a hot potato.
There was no way in hell that Tebow wasn't going to start. The fan base demanded it.
