Tim Tebow goes legend…again.

Scumbag Tim Tebow if you need him.


Denver Broncos 17, New York Jets 13

Unreal.

I’m still not really sure that I saw what I just saw. The Denver Broncos are down 13-10 to the New York Jets with the ball on their own 5 yard line and about five minutes to play. Surely, the worst case scenario for the Jets is overtime, right? Well, the sports world wouldn’t be in hysterics if that had happened.

Instead of overtime, the legend of Tim Tebow claimed yet another victim. On the last drive of the game, which started on Denver’s own 4 yard line, Tebow passed for 35 yards and ran for another 57 and the game winning touchdown on a 20 yard scramble. The Broncos are now 5-5 on the season, including 4-1 since Tebow became the starter (3 of those are come from behind wins), and are in the thick of things in the AFC West playoff picture.

This is the first time I’ve gotten a chance to see Tim Tebow in action since he was drafted, and it wasn’t a disappointment. This is the type of performance that people remember, and I know I certainly will. Had everyone else in the house not been in bed, I would have started yelling TTTTTIIIIIIIMMMMMMM TTTTTTEEEEBBBBBBOOOOOOWWWWWWW at the TV.

I was also really impressed with NFL Network’s handling of Tim Tebow. They were reasonable, informative, and certainly were not vitriolic like ESPN’s analysts are. In fact, I’d venture so far as to say that Merril Hoge choked on a chicken bone when Tebow scampered in for that touchdown. Heimlich!

If you keep up with sports at all, you’re going to be deluged with Tim Tebow and all kinds of adjectives to describe him as you watch/read/listen to sports news tomorrow, so I’ll just summarize my thoughts succinctly: that last drive was really cool to watch.

    Another crazy finish to a Tebow game. I think we can say definitively that Tebow sure makes the game really exciting. I love to turn on the TV to see what Tebow is going to do, whether it’s good or bad it’s going to make news. He’s becoming an icon and a legend. Whether he can sustain it or not is another question but the fact that he beat a Jets team that has Super Bowl aspirations could say something. Or maybe not. Also, do you think you could take a quick look at my blog because I would really love to hear what you have to say http://chrisross91.wordpress.com/2011/11/17/the-magic-of-tim-tebow/

      I live in SEC country and saw him on an almost weekly basis on TV when he was at Florida, so I’m very familiar with what he’s capable of. This is really the first time I’ve seen him since he was drafted by Denver, though. To me, he’s really only been a recurring character in highlight packages and mind-numbing debates on ESPN when he’s played. I continue to be impressed by his honesty, humility, and just plain hardworking attitude. And I really like that his play is demanding a second opinion from the pundits.

      And nice site! I can tell that you’ve put some good work into it. I’m trying to get mine going again after not touching it since June.

Tell me what you think!
