Broncos Tebow: Breakthrough Game

I think that even among the Tebow faithful, they didn't see him performing this well, this fast.

Week 2 of the Tebow-as-starter Era might have been Week 16 of the NFL season -- and might have come against the woeful Texans D -- but it was one of the biggest statements made by any player this weekend:

Just Win.

A slow start was ultimately eclipsed by two 4th-quarter TD drives of 70+ yards each, including the game-winning drive that ended with a 6-yard Tebow scoot into the end zone.

That bookended a 300-yard passing day for Tebow (something that presumptive Offensive Rookie of the Year Sam Bradford has only done once this season, in 15 starts).

On the season, Tebow has accounted for 8 TDs -- about a half-dozen more than most were willing to project (but right in the middle of my prediction of 7-10 TDs for him).

But the story of the game wasn't the stats -- it was the Comeback, leading the Broncos to a win that seemed out of reach just a quarter before.

It was a breakthrough performance.

  3. Amid laughs from the smarter males, I drafted Tebow in my fantasy league as a backup QB. I was able to start him today, in the championship game, no less, and win. Great day to be a Tebow fan!

  4. This was Tim's bible message for today's game.

    Luke 2:10-11 (New International Version, ©2010)

    10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord

  5. Just Tebow being Tebow. Simple as that.
    Couldn't have said it better myself. You took the words right out of my mouth. :)

  6. I've been listening to some of the local Denver radio shows and reading the local papers and everyone seems to be in awe with him all of a sudden. I just find it hilarious because we've all known what he could do for years, saying it over and over and over. If we thought Tebow mania was crazy at Florida, I don't think we've seen anything yet.

  10. Here is a piece of very good news. I cannot wait for it to air.

    From ESPN.It’s not often the No. 25 pick of the NFL Draft gets an hour documentary after less than one season.

    But not everyone is Timothy Richard Tebow.

    As part of ESPN’s Year of the Quarterback programming initiative, the network will air Tim Tebow: Everything in Between Jan. 6 at 7 p.m. on ESPN.

    The documentary is a behind-the-scenes look at Tebow from the 2010 Sugar Bowl to the NFL Draft in April. ESPN is calling Tebow “one of the greatest underdog stores in modern football.”

    Brett Favre can safely retire. ESPN has found its new media

  12. Brooke,I believe that is the one that will be shown on ESPN. ESPN will soon be airing previews of the documentary from what I heard while watching last night's NFL game.
    I am so looking forward to it.
