Tim Tebow has proven himself regardless of today’s Denver Broncos-Kansas City Chiefs result

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.

The haters, from whining ESPN radio hosts to angry “satirists” and fellow players, are envious.  And envy is rampant in all facets of society these days.

  1. It will take Tebow eight games to throw what Stafford/Matt Flynn did today!!!

    • Tebow has NO talent around him…and a porous defense. It's hard also when your horrid coach does not allow you to throw until the team is behind in the 2nd half.

      • Sorry there AJK but you mean Tebow has no talent. Brady has a crappy D that didnt stop him from dumping all over Teblow. Matt Ryan has a shitty D still gets it done. Cam Newton the list goes on and on. You can make excuses for Tebow but let's call it what it is a white Christian who fox news, 700 cub, KKK tea baggers love with the skill set of a top high school QB. Tebow shouldn't be in the CFL let alone NFL. Be a man AJK don't be a lil girl or that cancer kid who in love with Tebow he is only a man. But looking at your photo your softer then Tebow at the playboy mansion.

        • This is really an unnecessary comment. It's actually the second one you left, since the first one got filtered by our obscenity/hate speech filter. I am only leaving this comment up here for one reason: because it makes you look 10 times worse than the people, especially AJ, that you are insulting. There are worthwhile arguments in opposition of AJ's point in this post, and you make them somewhat, but resorting to personal attacks are not among the worthwhile arguments and totally take away from your point while needlessly insulting someone who was merely positing his opinion on a sports topic. Totally unnecessary.

          • Thanks. I think 90% of the Tebow haters hate him as a man, not a player. The true haters come out, and generally it's pure envy and name calling.

        • I would add that the vast majority of the anti Tebow vitriol is based upon personal envy not his performance. Every media guy begins by talking about him as a PERSON not the player — usually with jealousy and hatred.

          Tebow has 3rd stringers, a bad defense and a coach who refuses to let him play. Give him better personnel and he'll be fine. He's basically a rookie.

          The "experts" said he should've been drafted in the 5th rd and played receiver. They were wrong. He's already taken a 4 win team to the playoffs.

          I don't expect the hatred to end, just intensify. Envy is rampant in society today as we see daily in the news world.

  2. very well written and good substance, but tebow will be selling insurance late next year. He may even win today but he cannot play NFL style football. End of story. I watched Cam newton play today and Matt Moore and there is a world of difference. These guys can actually throw the football and can read defenses.

    That said, this is one of the worst NFL seasons of all time. So boring and predictable. Limited parity. Too many mediocre teams like denver, giants/dallas, houston, tennessee and others in the playoffs

    • Selling car insurance? There are about 10 million Tebow fans in Florida, he can come play for Jacksonville if all else fails. Anything would be better than Denver.
