It's going to be a good feeling when the weekend is over and the Denver Broncos fairy tale season with Tim Tebow is gunned down by the man Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. After all, Brady is a real quarterback in the NFL.
Obviously, with the Broncos being a current 13 1/2 point underdog to the Patriots, it's pretty apparent John Elway's boys will have to make their home overtime victory last week against the Pittsburgh Steelers the feather in their cap so to speak for this season.
I remember not too many years ago my dad watching a television show and telling me and my buddy about this kid named Tim Tebow. If I recall correctly, Tebow had just completed his junior year of high school and my dad basically said he was going to be a good one.
Honestly, I had never heard of him, but a few clicks and stories on the Internet later it was obvious Mr. Tebow was a very hot commodity for college programs. Of course, everyone knows all about his days at Florida. But, that seems like so long ago. I mean after all, he could actually complete more than two-thirds of his passes back then.
What disgusts me about all the Tebow haters, which I am not one of at all, comes from the fact they say he can't win long term. He's not a quarterback, never will be a franchise type player or even a good quarterback and obviously he can't handle passing the ball in the NFL — as attested by his dismal 46.5 completion percentage this year.
The thing people often don't understand about Tebow is that all he wants to do is win. He doesn't care how or who gets the "glory" so to speak. Honestly, when one considers he has probably the absolute worst receiving corps in the NFL, and perhaps one of the poorest of all-time, I think he's doing quite well.
Anyone who is a fantasy football nut knows Denver wideouts weren't a hot commodity at their draft or auction, aside from Brandon Lloyd, who was traded to the Rams. Only a nut even would've thought of throwing a $1 flier at Demaryius Thomas, but hey, he was listed as a tight end and I thought it was worth a shot at the time.
