Is still in the bottom 3rd of QBs. Am I really the only one who thinks the guy is just no good? He has played one playoff team and got crushed. He is a below average QB beating below average teams (barely) and some of those teams are missing their top 1 or 2 players.

He's winning. That's the bottom line.

DISCLAIMER : I do not blindly follow Tebow like he is the next Jesus. That being said, I still like watching him play.

The Broncos were horrid under Kyle Orton. When they put Tebow in, he gave the team something greater - something to believe in. Faith is a powerful thing. No, I'm not talking about Tebow's outspoken belief in God - I'm talking about the entire team believing that, somehow, if they play hard for the entire game, miracles will happen, and they'll win in the end. Even just sitting at home watching the Broncos play, it's just exciting to watch. It's almost like watching LSU play - it's unconventional, it's crazy, but your eyes are glued to the screen because you know they can pull it off somehow.

I thought that the game against the Vikings was a statement for Tebow. After all of the other games, Tebow critics have pointed to the stingy Broncos defense as the reason they kept winning. If anyone else was watching the same game I was, it was not a good day defensively for the Broncos. If anything, aside from the two interceptions, the defense was getting gashed by Christian Ponder, Percy Harvin, and Toby Gerhart.

The Broncos offense needed to have a big day. They did. Bottom line is, the team believes in themselves with Tebow in the lineup. They are 6-1 with Tim Tebow. Why try to fix what isn't broken?

Tebow is 6-1 as a starter and deserves consideration for MVP.

Bull,Yep,winning,and as long as he does? it's becoming phenominal.whos gonna stop him?

I'm sure it will eventually come to an end, but losing is a part of the learning process as well as winning. I'm glad to see he's handling all the negativity well, and proving the naysayers wrong...........at least right now. I think he can only get better as time goes on.

Well stated ^

This game had very little to do with Tebow winning the game. It had more to do with Ponder losing the game. Like I said before Denver is on one of those lucky streaks and everything is falling into place for them. Next week they will play Chicago, a team that would normally beat the stuffing out of Denver except that Chicago has no offense their QB is gone, and now the backbone of their offense Forte is gone. This is one of those games where Chicagos Defense will need to win the game.

Eventually, someone will outplay Tebow, or he'll be injured, and the Broncos will lose. There's no doubt about that, but in the meantime, Tebow and the Broncos are winning, albeit "unconventionally". The fans are enjoying the season, as they should be, considering the recent past.

Agreed, let everyone have fun with this.

consider the alternative

The same old Bronco's, is that what people want? another boring underachieving team?

I enjoy watching them play....when they're televised here. Actually, I enjoy watching every team play, if the truth be known..............however, I am getting really disappointed in my own team and their bone headed play calling and stunts. But then again, I really wasn't expecting them to have a winning season, much less be on top of the division right now anyway. It will likely be over with soon tho.

hey Bull.... try being a colts fan this year! everyone ****! lol

I used to like them......when they were in Baltimore. The "Midnight Train to Indy" kind of soured me on them. Then, the "Perfect Season **** Down", and now the "Suck for Luck". I watch them when they show them down here, but if I have better things to do, then I usually don't. Sorry.
