Behold, Tebowmania

Broncos' Tebow hugs Dolphins' Pouncey after their NFL football game in Miami Reuters

Love him, hate him, or just hate the coverage around him, there is no doubt that Tim Tebow brings the drama.

I’ve never seen a comeback quite as ridiculous as Denver’s win over Miami Sunday. It was the first time since 1970 a team came back from 15 or more points down with under three minutes to play.

If you didn’t believe in Tebow before the game, you felt more confident Tebow is not an NFL quarterback after watching his performance. If you did believe in Tebow, you had more reason to believe.  (The cover of the Denver Post said “Tim-Tastic.” And their sports cover topped that.)

Yes, Tebowmania is upon us.  Just check out the video of Tebow leaving the stadium after the win, provided by Ben Volin of the Palm Beach Post.

    It’s in Miami. What else do they have to cheer for?

    The photo cracked me up. Prelude to a kiss.

    It was the Dolphins, guys. Any QB can look good against them. Even though the Broncos rallied late, it doesn’t change the fact that Tebow looked horrible for the first 57 minutes of the game.

    This is Tebow’s future: 3 bad (but highly publicized) years in the NFL allow for him to become the spokesperson for some evangelical lobbying group like Focus on the Family. He’ll end up becoming a vocal campaigner for the Bachmanns and Santorums of the political world.

    Just wait and see.

  4. autumnwind999 says: Oct 24, 2011 10:41 AM

    Tebow is awful. I believe he took 7 sacks or something ridiculous like that yesterday. At one point in the 3rd quarter Denver had more punts in the game than passing yards.

    I’ll give him credit for the two late scores in regulation. But you have to credit Miami’s incompetence with that as well.

    If you didn’t see it, here’s how Denver won in OT:
    – Denver drive goes nowhere, ends on Tebow being sacked.
    – Miami drives to near midfield, QB holds ball way too long, fumbles.
    – Denver runs three times. Kicker hits a long FG.

    For 57 minutes, that was arguably the most unwatchable football game of all time.

    It is upon us. Let us relish in his glory! How can you not root for this guy?

  6. scytherius says: Oct 24, 2011 10:46 AM

    55 minutes of some of the worst QB play possible against the worst team in the league that gave up an inside kick and a fumble at game’s ens. Yeah. It’s Tebow time. *eye roll*

    The only drama created for this college player is created by the press.

  7. your6ringsaremeaninglessnow says: Oct 24, 2011 10:46 AM

    They make NFL players go through security before getting on the bus after a game? You learn something new every day.

  8. dbellina says: Oct 24, 2011 10:47 AM

    You guys gotta admit, the dude finds ways to win. He may play like crap for most of the game, but he plays well when it counts the most.

  9. joetoronto says: Oct 24, 2011 10:48 AM

    Seriously, is Tebow about to kiss the dude in that pic?

  10. jimbobobjr says: Oct 24, 2011 10:50 AM

    The First Church of Tebow is the fastest growing bandwagon ever. I haven’t seen such a terrible QB get so much credit since Tony Romo.

  11. broncosalute9 says: Oct 24, 2011 10:52 AM

    How would you like to be Orton??

  12. eagleswin says: Oct 24, 2011 10:56 AM

    In OT, after watching the defense force a fumble deep in Miami territory, then run it 3 times, and kick a field goal, all you heard was Tim this and Tebow that. You would’ve thought that Tebow had driven the team 98 yards, shedding tacklers to setup the go ahead field goal.

    The other players on the team got zero credit for the win. Not the defense who forced the fumble early in OT, nor the special teams who recovered the onsides kick late in regulation.

    For the life of me, it looked like Tebow’s throwing motion reminded me of a baseball pitcher. On that one touchdown, it looked like he was throwing a fastball low and inside. Luckily the receiver caught it around his ankles but he caught it.

  13. eagleswin says: Oct 24, 2011 10:58 AM

    For 57 minutes, that was arguably the most unwatchable football game of all time.

    ———————————–

    The NFL redzone was calling the Seattle game one of the most unwatchable ever but then handed the title to the Denver-Miami game at the end.

  14. str8up12 says: Oct 24, 2011 11:02 AM

    Tebow should except the Republican nomination.

    TSA does this so they can get straight onto the plane when they arrive at the airport.

  16. pff says: Oct 24, 2011 11:04 AM

    people keep mentioning how bad the phins are and dismissing the win since it was against an inferior opponent. newsflash guys…the broncos aren’t the green bay packers. they suck too. teams were about even in my book.

  17. thingamajig says: Oct 24, 2011 11:07 AM

    Unbelievable. Its easier and faster to go through security at LAX then it is to board a team bus in Miami.

  18. first2bomb says: Oct 24, 2011 11:11 AM

    Some are sick and tired of hearing about Tebow. Now that he’s in the lineup the headlines are just going to keep on coming…

    It was the Dolphins he just led a comeback win against. He knew thats what everybody would say.

    He did not look good through 3 and a half quarters. But the last five minutes the Broncos got it done. Tebow had a few nice passes setting up the drive.

    He scrambles out of the pocket as good as anyone. Thats a fact. Some say thats all he can do, he cant throw, cant read coverages, cant win… Tebow is going to be a bust is all I hear…

    I hope the kid does succeed. He can only get better with more reps. He works hard, he is a leader. No arguement there. I think he has a bright future.

    The fact that most of you rip his faith shows how moronic and immature you are. If your gonna rip him, rip his football performance. Cracking jokes at his beliefs yet again shows you all have no football sense whatsoever…

    first2bomb is behind you kid. Not a Denver fan but starting to like this Tebow guy. Its hard not to root you on…

  19. metalhead65 says: Oct 24, 2011 11:12 AM

    it must really kill you guys that hate him so much that the broncos and Tebow found a way to win. look all we want is for the guy to get a chance like every other player gets. maybe if they just let him play like he has his whole life instead of trying to make him look like a typical qb he would not look so bad while wining. but the bottom line is he won the game and his team mates believe in him. as for the pic of him and pouncey after the game,really he is not allowed to share a moment with a guy he played with in college? on a day they honored the team they played on?that is just sad on your part.

  20. chocolatebaconbutter says: Oct 24, 2011 11:16 AM

    I’m just as sick of the Tebow coverage as anyone, but you gotta admit, the guy just wins. He played like garbage, until it counted. Stats usually tell you the story, but in the end he won.

    There’s some guys out there that just win no matter what, he may be one of them…

  21. scudbot says: Oct 24, 2011 11:17 AM

    A certain writer has described Denver’s offensive strategy going forward perfectly: “… put him in the shotgun and cover your eyes.”

  22. massappeal12345 says: Oct 24, 2011 11:33 AM

    And he still looked better that Mark Sanchise did against Baltimore.

  23. bobbert55 says: Oct 24, 2011 11:34 AM

    Did anyone catch the guy on the video at the 2:47 mark with the sign with previous Denver QBs crossed out? “Ortan”? Really? Kyle must really feel like garbage since they hate him so much, they can’t even remember how to spell his name… or maybe some morons from Denver are illiterate.

  24. bucthat says: Oct 24, 2011 11:35 AM

    Hope u all know the “great” Tebow looked about as good as chad henne did sitting on the bench. Idk what QB cant throw a screen pass and have his wide outs/RB do all the work??? This guy is so overhyped u all need to calm down bout him saving the broncos

  25. lgwelsh1 says: Oct 24, 2011 11:37 AM

    Tim is going to be a Senator someday…if not the President.

    How can you not root for him? I mean seriously, it’s like watching a backyard football game when he hits the field.

    It’s so entertaining and somehow you just KNOW he is going to pull it off at the end.

    Tebow…Tebow…Tebow LOL

    But did you see the cancer patient he walked right past without acknowledging? what a jerk!

  28. golonger says: Oct 24, 2011 11:55 AM

    Please, the guy was playing AWFUL against MIAMI…….if he had played even OK, he wouldn’t have had to try and comeback……sorry, you don’t get credit for bringing a team back due to 1) your incompetance and 2) the fact that you are playing the worst team in the league and THEY are incompetant. Get real people!!!!

  29. comeonnowguys says: Oct 24, 2011 11:56 AM

    Tim Tebow / Bristol Palin 2030!

    Who else is rooting for the world to blow up in 2029?

  30. eleventyeight says: Oct 24, 2011 11:56 AM

    It has become “cool” to talk trash about any average white kid who loves Jesus and is against abortion. This political cycle has bled over into our views on sports and that is very, very sad to me.

    It used to be that Tebow was the kind of guy everyone rallied around. Now, instead, there is a huge faction who so despise him for caring about the state of his soul and the souls of others that they eagerly await and vociferously call for his “inevitable” failure as an NFL QB.

    OTOH- we have Cam Newton who was never seriously criticized or doubted. Newton, whose unorthodox style of play is on a level with Tebow’s, is cheered and encouraged, though he shares similar spiritual beliefs and is outspoken about his opinions.

    Cam Newton DESERVES all the support he’s gotten. He’s proved he can play at a high level, even though he does it mainly the same way he did it in college.

    But Tebow is expected to become a Dan Marino pocket-style QB and if he doesn’t he fails. Why? Why can’t he play from the shotgun, use his legs and succeed in the exact same manner as Cam?

    Why?

    Don’t answer me- answer yourself, hater.

    God Bless ALL the new-style QBs in the NFL today.

  31. akulabug says: Oct 24, 2011 11:57 AM

    I actually watched this game. I wanted to see for myself if the kid can play and not listen to talking heads.

    My conclusion is that he is miles away from being an effective QB. As Don Banks said it this summer, ” looks like he is being chased by bees. ”

    If anyone who watched the game wanted to be honest they would admit that that comeback was the result of some great shoe string catches by the WR’s and not any great throws by Tebow.

    Just trying to keep the Tebow conversation realistic.

  32. briang123 says: Oct 24, 2011 12:00 PM

    Best tweet I saw yesterday was something like this: Tebow is everything his critics says he is and is everything his supporters say he is.

    Rather root for him than a guy like Vick, which as a lifelong (40 years) Eagles’ fan I am stuck doing.

  34. savocabol1 says: Oct 24, 2011 12:09 PM

    Have fun Denver. You now worship a QB that, late in the 4th qtr, had more sacks than completions. Bad O-line you say? Yes, the O-line is terrible at protecting a QB that holds on to the ball longer than anyone in the NFL (sarcasm intended). You also now have a QB that runs like a fullback, and looks to run every single time the ball is snapped.

    Denver only came back because for some ungodly reason, the Dolphins were playing prevent defense the last couple of drives.

    I’ve been calling it “Tebow-berfest”

  37. eleventyeight says: Oct 24, 2011 12:13 PM

    I admit that I’m making excuses for him, but for the first 3 quarters of the game the DEN OC was trying to force Tebow to play like Orton.

    That’s not where Tebow excels; he excels from the shotgun, with a hot read and maybe one other deep look and the *option* to pull it down and run.

    You gotta admit: some of the Miami DBs looked like they didn’t wanna take Tebow on heads-up anymore. Remember: Tebow is 6’3’/250 and SOLID. He’d be a beast at RB, WR, TE or QB. No argument: he needs to clean up his passing. But trying to force a square peg into a round hole never works.

    And, somehow, he pulled it out in the end.

    The scoreboard is not open to debate.

  38. walmatt says: Oct 24, 2011 12:26 PM

    down by 15 with three minutes to play is an accomplishment but significantly more possible with the advent of the two point conversion

  39. jaglife says: Oct 24, 2011 12:28 PM

    Somehow this means the Jag’s are moving to LA right?

  40. trickbunny says: Oct 24, 2011 12:32 PM

    Don’t get too excited. The Dolphins are the team even my lowly Browns were able to come back on in the last minutes of a game- and the Browns *never* come from behind to win.

    It’s funny watching people heads explode in a “Ah TOLD yew Tebow wuz our save-yer!” atmosphere. Coming from 15 points down with only a few minutes on the clock is a FLUKE. When the Broncos are down by 2 TDs late in other games, don’t count on this happening every time or you are gonna be very disappointed.

    Brady Quinn will be the starter (in a total desperation move by the donkeys) before the year’s out.

  42. chobes68 says: Oct 24, 2011 12:32 PM

    The cheering fans video would be more impressive if this was NYC or Chicago. He did happen to play for the state school.

    That being said, how quickly has Denver fallen. 6-0 a couple of years ago this this….

    I don’t care what anyone says. Nice guy, seems to be. But he’s not an NFL starting QB. Although, I could see him carrying a clipboard, getting some reps in goal line situations.

  43. primetime6 says: Oct 24, 2011 12:33 PM

    Say whatever you want about the guy, he’s a winner… for all the loser QBs that have come in and out of the NFL, for all the guys that wasted their talents… for anyone to root against this guy, you have to be an idiot… I can do without his Jesus stuff but give me a guy with the heart and desire of Tebow over a guy like Jamarcus Russell ANY DAY.

  44. mspeechez says: Oct 24, 2011 12:33 PM

    I watched the game. It was painful. I believe that Tebow in the first half had 24 yards. Denver will be an easy win for the Pats and the Lions if Tebow starts . Brady can get more passing yards than 24 with one hand tied behind his back. Tebow mania will pass and Denver will get a real QB and may win some games but Tebow is NOT an NFL QB. Hes a wannna be. He will never have lasting power like Brady, Manning, Marino, and Rivers.

  45. pigskinswag says: Oct 24, 2011 12:34 PM

  47. The Prophet says: Oct 24, 2011 12:40 PM

    I’m just glad to see the guys who had all the winners in college like Tebow and Newton able to finally translate that into the NFL.

    Seems like after all the Vince Youngs, Brady Quinns, Jimmy Clausens, and Matt Leinart that the college world and NFL world were completely unrelated.

    I’m not necessarily a Tebow fan, but he has major intangibles, and major league charisma and will be a huge star for the NFL for years to come, whom all fans will either adore or despise.

  48. 2ndaryinsanity says: Oct 24, 2011 12:53 PM

    I have no problem with Tebow. I think it’s refreshing for an NFL player to embrace his religious beliefs (whatever they may be). He’s an extremely gifted athlete. But, will his skill set translate to being a successful NFL quarterback? No one knows (but everyone seems to have an opinion). What I take issue with (and get completely annoyed by) is the insane hype surrounding him. Tebow supporters act like Tim walks on water (pardon the bad pun). They react as if he’s won a super bowl every time he does something right: like, you know-being able to handle a snap when he’s under center, or completing a pass.
    Tebow seems like a great young man, but he’s a project that needs A LOT of work before his play can even begin to justify the hype. Unfortunately, Tim most likely won’t get the neccessary time to develop into a good (much less great) NFL quarterback. Not in Denver, anyway. Fox and Elway didn’t draft him, and they haven’t exactly been supportive of him in the media.
    And, let’s not forget…he’s not exactly surrounded by talent in the Bronco’s offense!

  49. fancyleague says: Oct 24, 2011 12:56 PM

    He’s having a better start to his career than Michael Vick did. He should be given the same ten years to finally have a good season that Vick did.

  50. sullijo1 says: Oct 24, 2011 12:56 PM

    Please keep the political comments to some other site – I turn to sports to get away from that circus. To me, it appears many of you can’t separate the two. The hatred for this guy is clearly political/ religious driven – not sure what else it could be.

    I think it’s fine for people to criticize Tebow’s abilities (or lack thereof) – that’s fair, but the political and faith stuff needs to go to another site where people actually care about that.

    The day that polictics and religion start to dominate the NFL is the day I will stop watching. Please….keep your politics out of the NFL.

  51. 46defense says: Oct 24, 2011 12:59 PM

  52. fwippel says: Oct 24, 2011 1:14 PM

    Honestly, I watched that game and was wondering about whether the play-calling by John Fox (or whoever calls Denver’s plays) wasn’t designed to make Tebow look bad. Talk about playing it close to the vest.

    When the game was on the line, Tebow actually completed some nice passes. But whoever is calling the plays for Denver needs to open it up and let the results just happen.

    But after game, I heard wailing and grinding of teeth…..I think it was Merrill Hoge upset because, somehow, Tebow actually led his team to victory.

  53. broncsfan72 says: Oct 24, 2011 1:14 PM

    look Tebow haters. The broncos won. end of story. Tebow was their quarterback. At the end of the day the W is all that matters. We haven’t had alot of those lately. We never said Tebow was our Savior. We just want to win with somebody under center. Have a heart man.

  54. golonger says: Oct 24, 2011 1:17 PM

    With all the hype of beating the Dolphins and all the talk that Tebo won the game you would think he won the Super Bowl or even metioned to go to the Pro Bowl. Denve fans really must be desperate and that is a shame for such a great fan base. You have crowned him the king and for what two or three passes and a run. How about the missed passes of over ten yards to a wide open receiver. Lets see it as it is, back up QB at the best. All this… has everyone motivated and is a winner. Did you not see him sitting on the bench not even talking to other QB’s or walking around with the raw raw raw pumping up players. It was not going on. You want future QB’s look at the Panthers and Bengals, look at their stats.

    I love this kid, and a win’s a win. Playing like crap for 55 minutes and winning in the last 5 is better than vice versa. Keep him in the shotgun. Whatever works. He’s fun to watch because you never know what he’s going to do.

    Now, granted, sports is the last place for religion and politics, but I’m glad this kid is open about everything he feels and doesn’t care what people think. You don’t see a lot of guys like that anymore, unless their loudmouth a-holes.

  63. bullcharger says: Oct 24, 2011 1:40 PM

    I don’t doubt Tebow’s heart, the fact that he is a winner or that he can run the ball and make some of the throws that are required. That said, he isn’t an NFL caliber QB that is going to get consistent wins. Tebow would be perfect for the wildcat, but he isn’t going to win against good teams as a starting QB.

  64. flik44 says: Oct 24, 2011 1:58 PM

    I don’t like all the fawning over Tebow either but listening to people mock his faith is sickening and uncalled for.

  68. Deb says: Oct 24, 2011 2:50 PM

    Oh good grief, what is the problem? That game was three hours of excruciating boredom and about 20 minutes of thrill. If nothing else, the guy puts on a great show … eventually.

    No, Tim’s not a good quarterback, but he’s a terrific old-school football player. He’s fun to watch, and he doesn’t make an idiot of himself when the mics are on. His spiritual beliefs are his own business, but he’s not the only player who has a deeply felt faith. I don’t remember Reggie White or Kurt Warner getting all this hate. Some of you guys just can’t be satisfied. Either you’re complaining because players are shooting people in strip clubs or you’re complaining that they’re not. How about just sticking to the game?

  69. sammievee says: Oct 24, 2011 2:51 PM

    “It was the first time since 1970 a team came back from 15 or more points down with under three minutes to play.”

    You need to keep this comment in context as in 1970 15 pts related to three scores/possessions. There was no “two-point conversion” in 1970, granted the AFL did have one prior to the 1970 merger that took place prior to the 1970 season.

    Prior to the two pt conversion being brought back–1994, I believe–a final three minute 15 pt comeback in an NFL game would have equated to coming back from 17 pts down in the post 1994 era.

  70. mackie66 says: Oct 24, 2011 2:57 PM

    Its to bad some of u football fans dont know one damned thing about football. Timbow was sacked 6 times, he didnt stand in the pocket waiting for it to happeded. His offensive line bares some of the problems Tim had. The biggest, best thing Tim has going for him is that he plays his heart out. He never quits, he never loafs, like so many pros do in this era NFL. If the Broncos are smart and thats a big IF, they’d take timbow, teach him to throw, teach him how to QB, if not then teach him to be an H-back. Tim carries so much heart and soul into his game, people gravitate to it..Ask the players who play with him. Ask Champ Bailey. Ask the Broncos why they won that game yesterday. Pure “want to”. “I will not be denied”.

    Not a Tebow or donkey fan at all, but he did direct the offense that eventually won the game. That’s the only stat that counts.

    You like football? Maybe you should watch some so that you can get a clue! Stats don’t win games, points do and Tebow puts points on the board. Here are the facts: Tebow has won %50 of his starts. Two of them have been 15 point 4th-quarter comebacks (More than Elway had). On 80 and 56 yard td drives only 4 runs the rest were clutch passes. The pass to the TE Fells into triple coverage is a throw that only Manning and Brady usually make. Get yourself NFL Rewind, watch it again, watch more football.

    I didn’t mind Tebow one way or the other before. But after FOUR Tebow segments on First Take this morning, I officially hate him and hope he fails miserably. I also won’t watch that show anymore after being a viewer for several years.

    Silly subject, but Tebow’s not eligible to become President, because he was born in the Philippines.

    Bronco fans already forgetting how to spell Orton’s name.. *shakes my head* But, we came back as a team. Tebow does spark the defense with his hard-nose play.

    first they said he’d never be a Quarterback.
    then they said he’d never be a starting Quarterback.
    then they said he’d never be a winning starting Quarterback.
    then they said he’d never win a National Championship.
    then they said he’d never win the Heisman.
    then they said he’d never go to the NFL as a Quarterback.
    then they said he’d never be a Quarterback for the Broncos.
    then they said he’d never start at Quarterback for the Broncos.
    then they said he’d never win at Quarterback for the Broncos.

    what have we learned here??? One thing. Haters gonna hate.

    stanmackley…

    You know, no matter how many times y’all spam us with the bogus “…they said he’d never…” list,
    it won’t make it true.

    “They” weren’t saying all those things: you folks made them up later as a list of magical hurdles that you can pretend Timmy overcame.

    No, “they said” he wasn’t an NFL level QB, and
    now he’s in a position to test that. You’re impressed that he (with the assistance of an on-side kick) got an overtime win against a horrible Dolphin team. Fine. If you think that proves TT will be successful in the NFL, swell. I don’t “hate” Tebow, I’m just sick of hearing 20x as much about one guy with no NFL resume, than the next 20 QBs combined, who actually HAVE a record of NFL success.

    One thing we can ALL agree on:

    Too many are focused too hard too often on one kid who’d most likely rather just play football.

    Eh?

  79. Wilie Beamon says: Oct 24, 2011 11:24 PM

    Since the Broncos went 6-0 in 2009 with Kyle Orton at QB the broncos defense has given up the second most points per game in the league at 28 ppg .

    They held the Dolphins to 15 points.

    I can accept an evaluation of performance, but not a needless, biased attempt to trash an underdog (in hindsight). That is a sorry way to evaluate.

    Im not in on Tebow mania, I am just surprised at the unprofessional-ism of this pftblog writer with posts like this- and the overarching attempt to take away a win from the broncos over the dolphins. IT HAPPENED. I will also be spotted pulling for Carson Palmer to succeed in Oakland, for the Bills to put up a winning season, for Colt McCoy/Gabbert/and any other rookie QB to succeed.

    Just please stop proselytizing, Tim. As a die-hard Broncos fan, that’s all I ask. I get it: Jesus rules, everyone else drools. Now please stop mentioning him in every interview and focus on getting better at football.

  82. mmmpieyummy says: Oct 25, 2011 4:02 PM

    Just proves once again how unbelievebly stupid Donkey fan is…they will blindly follow
    this guy, thinking he can continue to do this week after week.

    It was the Dolphins you idiots…and it was only 15 points for Tebow’s sake. What is your
    savior going to do when he is down 30 points with 4 minutes to play?

    They will simply gloss over the first 57 minutes of incompetence and only focus on 3
    minutes of Dolphin coaching stupidity. Donkey fans are complete and utter fools.
