unless Green Bay goes 16 - 0, then move McCarthy up to 1 and slide the rest down.
The craziest thing about this Tebowmania is that the defending champion Packers are 13 - 0, and are the 2nd story.
As a Broncos season ticket holder I have seen quite a transformation take place at Mile High over the past two years and despite my initial doubts about Timmy you have to give him a lot of the credit. Home games had lost much of their excitement over the past couple years, and may have hit a new low early this year agenst the Chargers. The place was dead, boos frequent, and there was little if any hope left for the fans. It was no longer a tough place to play for opponents, if anything it was one of the easiest places for NFL teams to get a road win. If the Broncs trailed in the 3rd or 4th quarter it was a done deal, Orton never rallied if usually fell apart when the game was close. There was a genuine fear of the Broncos being embarrassed at home, no matter who the opponent was.
Since the Tebow takeover everything's changed. The past two home games have been the most exciting I've seen in Denver for a long time. And that's impressive considering they has zero offensive TDs in the first 3 quarters of both games! It reminds me of Dodgers games when Gagne was in his element, the game didn't start til closing time and in Denver the game starts in the 4th quarter. As long as he has a chance (i.e. not down 20+ points) there is a genuine feeling that he's gonna make it happen. People at the games don't know how to explain it, and there's as much laughing as cheering because it still seems so improbable even as it's happening.
Crazy thing is, the Tebow lead Broncos are 5-0 on the road! It really speaks to the mental toughness of the team. They perform their best in the clutch, during the 4th quarter and on the road which are often the toughest situations a team faces. It bodes well for the future and to me shows this isn't a fluke.
Ok, for anyone who likes this kid you have to watch Showtimes weekly football recap(forget the name). They have sideline footage of Tebow and the Christianity thing is just too much. He is singing nonsensical love songs to Jeebus constantly. And contionuously telling his teamates 'God has this' and all kinds of other similar things. That HAS to wear on folks and the fact that a lot of the time they show him on the bench by himself certainly speaks to that. I have nothing against the guy having faith but at some point it becomes irritating and he comes off a little mental. Seriously, if you think I am exaggerating watch the show.
After scoring no points in the second half, what an amazing ending for the Broncos. Perfect call, perfect pass, perfect catch, perfect stiff arm, perfect touchdown. It was great to see Elway going nuts on the sidelines too.
Tebow is not going past the Patriots anyways. I'd still rather have a hurt Big Ben than Tebow. What heart Big Ben showed by playing injured and who still has 2 super bowls under his belt. The guy is a beast.
Love Tebow, this is a football player with nuggets larger than an elephant. I just wish a few of the Kings players had 1/4 the heart as he does.
Thank god Tebow fiasco came to a crushing end.
So does this mean that GOD no longer supports Tebow and the Broncos?
Or is Tom Brady simply the antichrist?
