Mark Brunell as Tebow

Mark Brunell is practicing against the Jets defense in place of Tebow.  Why?  First, because he's a lefty.

"I don't know if anybody ever saw, and I don't know what his stats were in college, but we had some highlight films of Brunell when he was younger. He was Tim Tebow minus about 50 pounds, and he could run like crazy," Ryan said, adding that Brunell's contributions would help because of the limited film on Tebow in Denver. "[Brunell] is familiar with the option and has run it before."
