I'd be more inclined to agree with you if you ever made a positive comment about anyone ever.
I thought that myself when I read that article that talked about a Data Scientist(tm)

Tebow didn't play for Urban at Utah or BGSU. We'll see how he does, but the idea his success was all due to Tebow is a bit wishful thinking for Michigan fans.
If you don't ask him to score more than 17 points, he's the best QB in NFL history. In 7 starts, he's directed the offense to 10-38-17-17-16-35-13. The 38 and 35 are against the Raiders and Vikings. If he's leading his offense to 24+ points, I'd be squarely on his bandwagon.
EDIT: I don't give a damn what he believes, or what he does with his free time. Makes no difference to me. His play on the field, along with those point totals, lead me to believe that this is fool's gold, and that the Broncos are on borrowed time with their current streak. You gotta score more than 2 TDs a game to win consistently in this league.
the ultimate team game. It is all about the team, not about just the Qb or a rb or wr or defensive line or any one component. Denver continues to find a way to win as a team. Also note Tebow did manage somehow to put up 34 point against Oakland.
I'd expect Michigan fans to understand that better than anyone else! THE TEAM, THE TEAM, THE TEAM!
The guy does not tell you how to live your life, he does not tell you what to believe in, he does not make you have to do a single thing. All he does is state what he believes and say what he thinks, and somehow make everyone around him better. He wins, and his team wins. Why that seems to bother other people says more about you than it ever says about Tebow....
I don't cheer against him for any personal reasons. I only do so because he's the crowning achievement of the HC of our arch--rival. As long as Tebow is doing well in the NFL, he can look at any dual-threat prospect and say "you see what Tebow's doing? That was me." I feel entirely justified in hoping Tebow has a wonderfully succesful and happy life that has nothing to do with success in the NFL.
Wow, you're pretty defensive about a post that was positive. I said I love it and it's true. This run of wins is unprecedented. I love football and this is crazy to watch. Any criticism leveled at him is perfectly valid. The only thing I said was that he had 45 yards in the first three quarters which is true. I think some people hunt criticism so that they can claim discrimination which is a bit ridiculous IMO.
The over-the-top fawning by announcers calling UF games was nausea-inducing on a good day. I loved rooting against the guy. I smirked after the Detroit game and got a bit of satisfaction from the meltdown. But the comments after that game from both the Lions and the talking heads the week after were every bit as over-the-top in their insulting criticism as the worship was when he was at Florida. I started pulling for him after that, and what can I say. He's a nice kid. I think religion is a private thing and ought to be kept private, but I think the kid just believes what he believes, is passionate about it, and is being genuine.
I'm rooting for him. It's fun to watch read-option once in a while. Today was the first game I actually got to watch-- and it was as exciting as rooting for my actual NFL favorite Steelers.
As a Bears fan screw this shit. However it is obvious Tebow is the new Charlie Sheen. All he does is one.
That is "win". iPhone fail.
Wouldn't that make him Tim the Baptist?
The enemy of my enemy is my friend.
If you love the Lions then you have to like what happened today. Regardless of what you think about Tebow as a QB, an evangelist or just a human being in general. The dude just led a comeback that gave one of our rivals in the race for the NFC wild card a very important loss. Go Timmy!
Please go away. Nobody wants you here.
The better Tebow plays, the more I believe he is just a winner and the more I believe Urban Meyer is a fraud. He's a good coach that everyone is blowing up to be the best ever. I think he'll come down to earth at Ohio. GO BLUE
I'll also admit it too, I kinda like Tebow as well. I think it's admirable that he stands up for what he believes and seems like a sincere guy. For all the supposed unadulturated love that Tebow supposedly receives, I see a majority of NFL analysts saying he is going to fail. I guess I just enjoy watching an unorthodox QB find success.
is grossly overshadowed by the "comeback" wins. The Denver defense is AT LEAST as responsible for the victories as is Tebow. He does seem to have some things go his way late in the fourth of every game lately, but he is also beating all the teams that are missing key players or are just bad in general. Remember the Lions destroyed Denver and the Lions aren't really very good.
The combined record of the Denver's last six opponents is 35-43. The Broncos have caught each of these teams at the perfect time;
Palmer played for the first time for Oakland after the starter went down.
KC is just bad
The Jets were giving away games when the Broncos played them
Phillip Rivers was playing very poorly around the time Denver beat them
MInnesota, enough said
The Bears don't have a QB or a RB.
Yeah, they still have to play the games and everybody is beat up this time of year, but aside from the Lions, it seems every team is "laying down" against Tebow, like some kind of Jedi mind trick.
I can't explain it, but if the Broncos make the playoffs, I still say they get drilled. I'm not a Tebow fan or (Tebow)believer, but he seems very genuine and you cannot fault the man for his beliefs or his ability to motivate his teammates.
Grow a pair and listen to the man's justifiable opinion. You can certainly go away if you'd like (since you can't seem to offer one)!
I respectfully disagree. Most analysts are in the consensus that the offense isn't very good and the winning rate/string of comebacks is unsustainable. Thats what makes it all the more remarkable.
I know i'm old but damn I cant help but wonder what if. What if an NFL coach back in 1978 with nothing to lose and everything to gain like Fox had the balls to install an option offense and hand the ball to Leach? For all the talk about Tebow, Miller and even Denard for my money Ricky was the abolute tits when it came to a dual threat QB.
But....everybody KNOWS it could never work so it was never tried. Just like everybody KNOWS the spread can't work in the pro's today.
They have one of the worst statistical offenses in the league. They won by scoring thirteen points in five quarters.
It sure is exciting, but let's remember that Timmy is 7-1 agianst teams with a combined record of 37-48 with 4th quarter numbers put up against some pretty soft prevent defenses. And a big thank you to Marion Barber for todays version of for Tebow Time!
I can't believe he keeps winning the way he does. By all accounts, he is as genuine as they come away from the field. The media frenzy surrounding him is insane and he handles it so well. The funny thing is you almost knew they were going to come back. The kid is a winner...plain and simple. People will have to listen to him talk about his God because he isn't going to stop. It causes so many to people to hate him, but it is what it is.
will be the Broncos biggest test.
I totally understand the smile now.
What does this picture have to do with Tebow?
They do tend to run and control the clock. You can win with defense, limited turnovers and running the ball. They have good specials teams as well. The only number that truly counts is the 7-1 record. They probably aren't winning the super bowl, but they went from 1-4 with no hope this year to a potential playoff team. Not bad for a guy who isn't good enough to be an nfl qb.
Also, major props to Tebow for nailing that long fg...that was also clutch.
I'd bet anything that Tebow reaches out to Barber to console him for those mistakes and ends the phone call with "hey God bless you man".
We got Marion Barber'd!!!!!!! All props to Tebow though. Love the guy, but hate losing to him...
I'll say this about Tebow - his throwing motion has improved - it's obvious he is putting a lot into getting better, which is all you can ask. If I were a Bronco fan I would love it.
I'm shaking my head at the Bears offense in their last possessions of the 4th quarter. Three straight possessions they ran it up the middle every time and went three and out. 10 points is an awfully small margin on the road to be playing that conservatively. The inner game theorist in me is wincing at the decision to play not to lose on the part of the Bears.
Then the Bears prevent D gave up first down after first down through the air and fumbled well within field goal range. 13 unanswered points and that was all she wrote.
They were 2 of 15 on 3rd down and didn't even average 4 YPA passing--and that was Hanie's best game to date. After seeing him the two games prior I can understand why they were happy their offense hadn't already thrown the game away; I'd have been happy to sit on it too. And if they'd done it again, run up the middle all three downs their last series in regulation, Barber wouldn't have gone OB and they would have won.
Quite a few drops by the Denver receivers today, somewhere around 6 or 7.
Not saying it totally excuses the 0 points for the first 57 minutes of the game, but its not like Tebow was flailing around totally incompetent as he has in some of his other performances.
Tebow is like the anti-Lebron. Fascinating.
Tim Tebow. He blows the Broncos haven't played anyone. I live in Denver, fans know very little about footbal. I want it to end although I am happy with outcome of game today as we the Lions needed Bears to lose.
Chicago just bent over, spread their cheeks and said come on in!
These folks are doing some wonderful work these days:
Tebow cannot win in the NFL....wrong
Tebow cannot get his team to the playoffs...wrong
Tebow will not win in the playoffs...pending
They haven't made the playoffs yet. Premature on that one...
Huge win for the Lions
Looks like the Lions, Bears and Falcons for the 2 wildcard spots. Come on Cowboys take out the Giants!!
