No matter what occurs in Denver this afternoon, it’s well worth noting…
After the Broncos’ unexpected 6-0 start in 2009, the team went an abysmal 7-24 in their next 31 games.
They were picked for last place this year, expected to be one of the worst teams in the NFL, and promptly began the season 1-4. Denver’s season was basically over in the minds of most.
Since Tim Tebow, essentially still a rookie, and with all the pressure in the sports world on his shoulders (plus unparalleled media and societal antagonism, coaches/upper management that didn’t believe in him, and in the minds of many, actually WANTED him to fail), took over with a remarkable comeback win Oct. 23 at Miami, the Broncos have won SEVEN games…against just three losses. They now sit in first place heading into today’s finale against Kansas City.
7-3 with Tebow at the helm versus 7-24 in the two years prior.
Ponder that. It’s incredible.
Considering Denver is also playing backups and unknowns at key positions like receiver and running back, and the defense is ranked near the bottom of the NFL, the success under the 24-year-old Tebow is even more impressive.
In a world lacking leadership, Tim Tebow is a LEADER on the field and off. And no matter what occurs today or in the playoffs should Denver make it, he is a WINNER — as proven at every level of his sports and personal life.
