It's more to do with some of the things that Suzy spelled out; that he was told that he'd be the #2 when they traded for him, that Rex has said time and time again that he's the #2, that Rex stated that if Sanchez went down to injury, that Tebow would be the one to replace him.
In short, since he's been here, Rex has stated repeatedly that he's the #2 and that they had faith in him, so, I think it's normal that some of us would have expected him to get the start over McElroy.
How about the fact Rex had every bit of intention of playing him until he say him trying the Jet playbook. Rex is allowed to change his mind after seeing Tebow running practice. You've never thought someone was going to be with you for life until you got to know them and thought different. Rex found out the hard way just why Denver wanted to get rid of him. Rex also found out just how lucky Tebow was in that game against the Jets. (ie Lennard just missing a game ending safety. If we even had an average QB and not a turnover machine Tebow mania dies before it even gets started and Denver never even makes the playoffs.
