Tebow tanks, Broncos go to playoffs anyway

Denver Broncos Tim Tebow' hangs his head after losing to the Kansas City Chiefs during their NFL football game in Denver, Colorado Reuters

Tebow time never started in Denver Sunday. It didn’t need to because of what happened in Oakland.

The Broncos lost 7-3 to Kyle Orton and the Chiefs, but they are AFC West champions anyway because the Raiders lost in San Diego.

The Broncos are going to the playoffs even if they aren’t a particularly good team. Their third straight loss puts them at 8-8 for the season and will raise further questions about Tim Tebow’s long-term viability as a starting quarterback.

This was one of the more wretched big game performances you are going to see out of a passing game. Tebow completed 6-of-22 for 60 yards and average of 2.7 yards-per-attempt. He was intercepted once and lost a fumble when in scoring range.

Tebow was 30-for-73 with one touchdown and four picks in the last three weeks. He has seven fumbles in his last four games.

The victory had to be sweet for Orton, who played well in the first half before Dwayne Bowe left with an injury.  Orton finished with 180 yards on 29 attempts, but didn’t make any big mistakes.

Even though the Broncos backed into the playoffs, this result couldn’t have been worse for Broncos executive John Elway. He looks foolish for dumping Orton. If Elway wasn’t convinced Tebow was the guy eight weeks ago, how does he feel now?

Denver’s playoff position pushes them further down in the draft, so it’s not like they will be taking a high profile quarterback. But these are questions to ponder during the offseason.

For now, the Broncos have a playoff game to prepare for against the Steelers.

Pittsburgh won’t have to look far to find a defensive gameplan that can stop Tebow and the Broncos offense cold.

    Worst QB to play in the playoffs. Ever.

  2. nflfollower says: Jan 1, 2012 7:41 PM

    Tebow got em in with his win streak. But looks like the gig is up. He’ll have to improve his passing game for the Broncos to have a shot at the playoffs next year.

  3. mmcdan133 says: Jan 1, 2012 7:41 PM

    Here’s a thought. If Philip Rivers doesn’t botch a routine snap to run the clock out on the Chiefs in October, they’re 9-7 and heading the playoffs. Norv Turner and AJ Smith keep their jobs. That, my friends, was a costly play.

  4. 730boy says: Jan 1, 2012 7:42 PM

    Tebow sucks, he is not a good starting QB elway will draft a QB this offseason. lets be honest now, denvers D should be getting a lot more credit than tebow

  5. jayquintana says: Jan 1, 2012 7:42 PM

    I like the kid, but… oh, boy, the Steelers are going to eat him alive next week.

    Polamalu will have at least one pick-6. Guaranteed.

  6. randomguy9999 says: Jan 1, 2012 7:43 PM

    so Tebow is proved to not be a quarterback…..

    if you get the ball back on your own 16 with no timeouts down by 4 with 0:58…. you need a guy who threw for more than 60 yards the entire game at QB…..

    so now it’s Steelers time for Tebow…. and Tebow is going to get the embarrassment of his life….

  7. bigshirk says: Jan 1, 2012 7:43 PM

    Tebow had a good run, but it was only a matter of time before these teams figured out his collage ran system.

  8. rollinghighwayblues says: Jan 1, 2012 7:43 PM

    Possibly one of the most painful and boring games I have watched in the recent years. Tebow is an absolute pain to watch.

    Denver must feel really good going into next week with the convincing performance Boy Wonder showed us all today.

  9. KIR says: Jan 1, 2012 7:47 PM

    The Defense has been a liability all year. Fire the defensive coordinator, today! Has anyone ever seen Curry shed a block and make a play? Dude is lost half of the time out there. Need a big time pass rush defensive lineman and another play making linebacker. Other than that, next year Raiders should be a playoff contender.

  10. ammarradhi says: Jan 1, 2012 7:48 PM

    I was hoping this would be the last week we hear about Tebow, but looks like we have to wait another until the Steelers whoop him. Denver should go after Flynn in the offseason and they will be the kings of the west.

  11. sterilizecromartie says: Jan 1, 2012 7:49 PM

    I admit I am a Tebow supporter. Not because I think he is an outstanding QB, but because I didn’t care for all the unfounded hate thrown his way before he was even given a chance. And now he was given that chance and he isn’t cashing in on it as of late. Yes, he took a 1-4 team to the playoffs, but he hasn’t looked good doing it. I’d be shocked if they win next week.

  12. bagadeez04 says: Jan 1, 2012 7:51 PM

    Steelers can sit Big Ben in the first round.

    I like Tebow…not an NFL QB though.

  13. pudgalvin says: Jan 1, 2012 7:52 PM

    I’m sorry, but Tim Tebow is the worst passer in the league. There aren’t receivers or offensive lineman or anyone else to blame it on today. Half of his passes aren’t within 10 yards of his receivers. The Chiefs had a pretty good day in the secondary, but not 6-22 good. He made be a hell of a leader, but he’s a terrible quarterback. His legs and the Broncos d can keep them in games against bad teams, but he’s just not good enough.

  14. kilo0986 says: Jan 1, 2012 7:54 PM

    Well Mr.Elway, theres a certain qb in st.Louis that I read in an earlier post might possibly land on the trading block.

  15. Cheesehead Ken says: Jan 1, 2012 7:55 PM

    Elway does not look foolish for dumping Orton. Just because Orton beat the Broncos, doesn’t mean he wasn’t awful at the beginning of the year. It was time to turn it over to Tebow to see what he brought. The biggest problem is, they still don’t know if Tebow is or isn’t their guy. If he (somehow) wins a playoff game, what the heck does Elway do?

  16. duanethomas says: Jan 1, 2012 7:55 PM

    If his wideouts would have caught the ball, it would have been another comeback. Tebow played well as always. I can’t wait for a full off season and training camp. He is going to make people forget about Elway, when he wins multiples Super Bowl and MVP’s. Quit being a hater and get on the bandwagon.

    They said he couldn’t play in high school.

    They said he couldn’t play in college.

    He is the best young QB in the Game!

    If you thumbs down you are UnAmerican and hate the Baby Jesus.

  17. richm2256 says: Jan 1, 2012 7:59 PM

    Tebow did not impress me today.

  18. auroraborealisfan says: Jan 1, 2012 8:00 PM

    Elway looks like a fool for trading Orton in a 7-3 win? Really? Who would have ever guessed at 1-4 that Denver would make it to the play-offs. Just sayin…

  20. scytherius says: Jan 1, 2012 8:06 PM

    Oh please. Tebow has never helped this team win. They won in spite of him.

  21. raiderdave says: Jan 1, 2012 8:07 PM

    Raiders lost in Oakland, like they have all season. Just a correction to your report and another hindered vomit chunk from the back of my throat. Denver will be one and done, but it’s not like any other team in the AFC West would fare any better. Here’s to whomever the American Football Conference can throw out there to compete with the Packers and Saints this year!

  22. Gronckle says: Jan 1, 2012 8:07 PM

    Im a Broncos fan and that was an absolutely pitiful offensive performance. Tebow shoulders most of the blame, but they run a ridiculously conservative gameplan. Tebow got half of his attempts on the final drive. Can you give they guy some screens, a few short pass (or at least attempts) to keep the D from selling out against the run EVERY play. Open it up and let the chip fall where they may. Tebow may very well blow it, but this gameplan obviously doesn’t work against even mediocre teams.
    Never thought a division title could be this disappointing.

    That being said, I have no doubt that they would never have been in the playoff race had Orton remained the qb.

  23. binarybulge says: Jan 1, 2012 8:07 PM

    Can’t wait to hear Skip Bayless’ excuses for him tomorrow morning.

  24. scytherius says: Jan 1, 2012 8:08 PM

    Hey Denver. I got two words for you for next year … Matt Flynn.

  25. timmeratx says: Jan 1, 2012 8:09 PM

    Here’s a Tebow question. Simms was spouting off how Tebow throws more than most qb’s in practice and that “he must’ve thrown 200 times before the game” in warm-ups. Is that a bit excessive? Wouldn’t he have a dead arm by halftime?

  26. drewbo22 says: Jan 1, 2012 8:09 PM

    Hopefully this is the last article we have to endure about this highly, highly over-rated fullback playing qb.

    There are probably 50 qb’s coming out of college with the same skill-sets Tebow has, but I guarantee they will not be allowed to make a mockery out of this position in the NFL.

    Elway, should man up and call a fullback a fullback and go get him a real qb in the draft (or acquire Matt Flynn )

  27. liquidalfa says: Jan 1, 2012 8:11 PM

    Make him an H back.

  28. dablitz2 says: Jan 1, 2012 8:11 PM

    I think Denver should start Brady Quinn next week. I have seen several Denver games. Their defense and special teams play great, as does their run offense. They don’t have a QB who can throw the ball. They will probably lose anyway if they start Brady, but at least he can put in a respectable performance and complete a few passes.

  29. johntonioholmes says: Jan 1, 2012 8:14 PM

    People forget that Pittsburgh has a habit of making 3rd tier quarterbacks look like superstars.

    I’m not saying that Tebow will turn in a Brees-like performance, but he’ll make enough plays to at least keep the game interesting.

  30. rexismybff says: Jan 1, 2012 8:19 PM

    All Orton has proven in three weeks is how pathetic the Packers’ defense is. Green Bay, like Denver, is likely to be one-and-done this year.

  31. stopthehate15bowdown says: Jan 1, 2012 8:23 PM

    Tebow definitely looked bad to day. People like to talk about how bad his passes are but the real problem is his lack of vision and happy feet. he did not look confident or poised at all and the coaching staff didn’t do any favors for him with that horrible game plan. They repeatedly ran the ball into 3rd and long situations. I think some pass plays on 1st down and some screen passes would have helped but the whole offense seemed to quit. I still think they can win with him but he has to get better a making decisions from the pocket and getting the ball out quickly. They will be a better team next year and he deserves a shot to try and run a regular offense. I think they should bring in vince young as a back up and draft another qb to push him.

  32. 4512dawg4512 says: Jan 1, 2012 8:27 PM

    Have fun with this one Skip Bayless, too bad Steven A. Smith will be on vacation

  33. nflfan1326 says: Jan 1, 2012 8:29 PM

    Why would any free agent qb want to go Denver with Tebow’s PR machine running the show.

    Wheels are starting to come off of that machine though as Champ Bailey seemed to have called out the offense, Denver’s D kept KC in check, but then again they just had to avoid mistakes because Denver’s O never threatened. More to come this week on Denver’s D vs. Denver’s O (Tebow).

  34. rudegger says: Jan 1, 2012 8:37 PM

    Tebow is an embarrassment to the league. It was a nice run he was on, but whoever thought that he would keep winning games the way he was winning games is an idiot.
    The guy isn’t even CFL “quality.”

    Yea, and if my aunt had balls, she’d be my uncle. If the Raiders had not given up a list minute touchdown to the Bills in week 2 they would have won and now be in the playoffs at 9-7. If Jason Garret had not called a timeout just before Dan Bailey kicked an apparent game winning field goal in week 13, the Cowboys would have one more win and tonight’s game might be meaningless. Had Eric Weddle not intercepted Matt Cassel with 55 seconds to go in week 3, the Chiefs might have one and earned a playoff spot with a week 17 victory.

  38. trbowman says: Jan 1, 2012 8:51 PM

    Give Brady Quinn a shot!

  39. timtheenchanter1 says: Jan 1, 2012 8:55 PM

    They should take Kellen Moore in the mid-rounds. Who better to oust the guy who “just wins” (except when he loses), than the winningest winner ever to win by winning?

    Plus he’s used to playing at altitude (although Boise is nowhere near as high as denver)

  40. TheWizard says: Jan 1, 2012 8:56 PM

    I think Denver should start Brady Quinn next week

    Disagree, gotta go with Tebow until they’re bounced out. They got there with him.

    If Elway chooses another guy for next year, that’s fair enough, but this is Tim’s run.

    They wouldn’t have sniffed the playoffs with Orton.

  41. packfaninvikeland says: Jan 1, 2012 9:25 PM

    I guess its….Tebow OVERtime lol

  42. notjcred says: Jan 1, 2012 10:00 PM

    On paper, it’s easy to call this a Tebow meltdown. In reality, John Fox has prioritized implementing Fox-ball instead of coaching to the strengths of his QB(s).

    Kyle Orton was an unnecessary casualty of an antiquated offense and now he has succeeding in fully adapting Tebow to that same offense. There is no excuse for running the ball approx. 70% of the time, without ever being in front. Furthermore, there is a stark contrast between utilizing the read-option’s entire kitchen sink
    and using the look as a gimmick to disguise protection.

  43. cleverbob says: Jan 1, 2012 10:10 PM

    The Eagles could use a new backup QB next year since Vince Young won’t be returning. Who better than VY2.0? He could be Vick’s roomie for road games.

  44. tking63 says: Jan 1, 2012 10:15 PM

    Why does Elway look bad for cutting Orton? He wanted to leave; it saved the franchise almost 3 mil. Orton is 5-14 in his last two seasons. Tebow came in while ugly doing it has Denver in the playoffs. Something neither Orton nor Cutler ever did. Let K.C hitch their wagon to him, he won 2 meaningless games, but not the one that matter against Oakland last week that would have put K.C in the playoffs…Oh Romeo you didn’t learn in Cleveand. What ever happen to Derek Anderson?

  45. moondog7 says: Jan 1, 2012 10:25 PM

    Fox&Co has got to be more aggresive next week. Punting when you have a 53 yard field goal attempt in denver. Running the ball almost every play on first and second down. Even with the ultra conservative gameplan, they did have KC right where they wanted them, within one score with the ball but Tebow and the wr’s couldn’t pull this one out. Tebow didn’t have a good game but the wr’s were not getting open much either.
    Seems like tebow thrived with all the hate and critisism early, then he got some love (even from elway) and has struggled and turned the ball over. It looks like the tide has turned again and he will have more critisism/doubters this week. Not sure what will happen next week, but it will be fun to watch. I hope he pulls it off.

  46. tinopuno says: Jan 1, 2012 10:38 PM

    It’s actually pretty simple. Tebow is mediocre at best and always has been.

    The winning streak was a combination of very good D, lucky bounces, incredible bone head moves by generally weak opposition, and 5 or 6 timely passes by Tebow.

    I’m sure he’ll do really well next week vs Pittsburgh.

  47. rameyag says: Jan 1, 2012 11:06 PM

    Bold move, Coach Fox?

    Start Brady Quinn.

    Tebow versus the Steelers?

    You’ve got to be kidding me?

    He’ll go 2 for 30 for 5 yards with 3 INTs and 2 fumbles and, after it is offer, will say, “I’ve got to get better.”

    Really, Tim?

  48. jodave5 says: Jan 1, 2012 11:09 PM

    Could this division be any more pathetic? For your review:

    1.) SD fan…if Rivers takes a snap in KC on MNF w/o fumbling, SD wins the division
    2.) DEN fan…if DEN beats a below average KC team today, they “win” the division (as opposed to backing in)
    3.) OAK fan…if they beat a SD team today w/nothing to play for, they win the divison
    4.) KC fan (me)…if Suc-off can kick 1 FG last week v. OAK, they win the division.

  49. goforthanddie says: Jan 1, 2012 11:13 PM

    “Tanking” normally refers to purposely losing a game. Surely you’re not accusing St. Tim of such a misdeed?

    I don’t know who’s worse Tebow or Sanchez

  51. ahs2 says: Jan 1, 2012 11:22 PM

    Elway and Fox should only feel foolish for not sticking to their convictions, caving in to the fans and media. After they get creamed by Pitt and have some dead time, Elway will be able to right the ship and get a QB capable of pulling out a W when his D holds the opponent to 7pts and your RBs spot you 240+ yards.

    I think Matt Flynn would be a place to start!!

  52. ahs2 says: Jan 1, 2012 11:23 PM

    The only ones who should be embarrassed are the media who blew this kid up and the fans who sabotaged their own team.

  53. darthbaiter says: Jan 1, 2012 11:27 PM

    As NFL fans, you have admit Chargers vs. Steelers is the best playoff matchup to watch out of the AFC West.

  54. borderline1988 says: Jan 1, 2012 11:48 PM

    Tebow’s stats have been awful in the last month.

    That being said, I do believe that Tebow has a chance at becoming a legit starting NFL QB. He’s smart, is very coachable, and isn’t scared in the pocket.
    All these young QBs with rocket arms who succeeded in college – so many of them suck in the NFL b/c they don’t have the pocket presence to make decisions with NFL defenders in their grill. That’s not a problem Tebow has. In a weird way, he reminds me of Roethlesberger. Not overly accurate, but strong and has a penchant for making plays out of nothing.

    With regards to this game, obviously Tebow sucked but blame should be shared. Denver receivers were basically never open. The playcalling and overall game strategy was brutal.

    With a defense like this though, Denver will be competitive for years to come. If they can produce even an average offense, they will be a scary team to face every week.

  55. yelix says: Jan 1, 2012 11:51 PM

    I think it’s safe to say that the formula for beating Tebow has been perfected. Unless he can learn to throw, the Broncos are going to have a hard time staying competitive in the future. I think any of the teams in the AFC West could win it next year.

    All my Chiefs need is to choose a QB, get a coordinator, and be healthy.

  56. brenenostler says: Jan 1, 2012 11:55 PM

    I think Brady Quinn would be pretty good if they just gave him a chance.

  57. thenotoriouskdv says: Jan 2, 2012 12:01 AM

    Orton was 12-22 as the starter in Denver so no Mike, even though Tebow isn’t the answer, Elway doesn’t look foolish for dumping Orton unless you think Elway should have kept him so they could go 4-12 and be in a position to draft RGIII. Just because Tebow looks awful doesn’t mean that Orton is the answer.

  58. ravensfan996 says: Jan 2, 2012 12:21 AM

    Tim Tebow is a good football player…..FOOTBALL PLAYER!!!!! He is not a QB. His 7 wins were misleading, as he played badly in most of them, but they managed to win, now, he will lose this playoff gm, and Denver has a big decision to make.

  59. vincentbojackson says: Jan 2, 2012 12:39 AM

    Huh!? This is such a ridiculous comment. It sounds like the writer had it in his head pre-game that KC would win and Elway would look stupid for dumping Orton. But, Orton was aweful. He really wasn’t much better than Tebow. He generated 4 points more than Denver…for a whipping total of 7. If Orton had played well I’d agree Elway looked stupid. But based on today’s game, he looks smart for dropping Orton and seeing Tebow can do. As a bonus, he also made the play-offs.

  62. cowhawkfan says: Jan 2, 2012 12:54 AM

    All of you calling for Denver to trade for Matt Flynn, what makes you think GB will give him up? Is he a FA? What does Denver have to trade for him? Are you the same people that though Vick was the answer in Philly or that Kolb would work wonders in AZ? Exactly how many games have we seen Mr. Flynn perform to believe he’s a superstar? Oh, and does his performance today devalue Rogers as an MVP candidate since he obviously isnt missed much.

    =============

    Yeah, Tebow’s stunning 6-22 for 60 yards was absolutely brilliant. The Ravens eagerly await another AFC West pretender to devour in the first round. A 7-3 backing in to the playoffs was brilliant – and no 4th quarter magic WHATSOEVER.

    FAIL

Denver will be one and done, but it’s not like any other team in the AFC West would fare any better. Here’s to whomever the American Football Conference can throw out there to compete with the Packers and Saints this year!
    ==============
    I agree. And with a GM things are going to be looking up in Oakland for the first time in a long time. Remember, they had to correct 7 years of bad decision making, firings, overhead projecter press conferences, an owner dying, a corner getting his sister killed, a LB shooting a gun at somebody in a fight, and a QB coming off the couch to play following a controversial trade.

    They have a chance to regroup and attack in a wide open AFC West, not sold on Tebow at all, but the Chargers (led by Jeff Fisher or Gruden) might be dangerous. KC might be a lot better once they get a QB. – the division is Raiders for the taking, once they cut the penalty act and play playoff level defense.

    —————————

    I think being given the chance to be the starting QB without earning it, is what turned many against Tebow in the first place. Word was he was the 4th best QB in training camp, even behind the undrafted rookie from Minnesota. It was reported he had trouble reading defenses and his accuracy was terrible throwing against air!

    At the start of the season he was third behind Orton & Quinn. Yet, he was promoted to 1st string without proving he deserved to be.

    The truth is, he could be a unique weapon if put in the FB/H-back spot. He can run, I read he can catch, and he can make enough throws just to keep defenses off balance.

  67. truthserum4u says: Jan 2, 2012 3:02 AM

    @ jackbassett

    I don’t think mmcdan133’s main point was that the Chargers could be in the playoffs. I think the point was that one play was very damaging, including the very real possibility it may have cost several people their jobs.

    Matt… I believe you know the Tebows. God has called me to share this with Tim. I have been shut out because the Tebows have not believed that God is not happy with Tim Tebow promoting NIKE… the company named after the pagan goddess NIKE. God was kind enough to Tim to warn him through me that he would struggle if he honored NIKE. This is what God has me sharing on the internet… and Tim and his family should heed the Word of God.

    God shared with me that Tebow would struggle as long as he promoted the company named after the pagan goddess of victory… NIKE.  
    I shared this with Tebow and his family… and I was told to be quiet by someone representing him.  
    You see… Satan came up with the pagan goddess NIKE many years ago to take honor away from God. NIKE has been worshipped as the pagan goddess of victory… but that is a lie of the devil. 
    God is the only God who should be worshipped period… and He should be honored for Victory because of the Victory He gave us through Jesus Christ! 
    Tebow has promoted products honoring the name of the pagan goddess NIKE… while promoting products honoring the Name of the Son of God… Jesus Christ. 
    God is NOT happy! 
    God even says in His Word… “Be sure to do all that I have said to you. You must not even say the names of other gods; those names must not come out of your mouth.” – Exodus 23:13 
    And on 1-1… you saw what happened to Tebow. 
    Here’s another 1 that Tebow should pay attention to:  
    Commandment 1… 
    “You shall have no other gods before me.” 
    Exodus 20:3 (God’s Word) 
    Tim… I am your brother trying to get you to obey God. 
    God was kind enough to warn you through me… 
    it’s time to drop NIKE and be blessed for honoring God.

    The Patriots gave the rest of the league the blue prints on how to beat T-Bow magic. That’s what people love to says when the Patriots lose anyway.

    I expected a lot more excuse making on Tim’s behalf for the last month, but it looks as if most of his supporters have evaporated into thin air! Oh sure, there’s a few odd posts blaming his coach for not letting him pass enough (despite being lauded for the previous 8 games for not exposing Tim’s shortcomings) and even blaming his “devil sneakers”, but for the most part he appears to have been abandoned.

    Now is the time when he needs you the most. Why have you forsaken him?

    cleverbob: Because they were not Broncos or football fans – just whackaloon zealots who “thought” this Tebow guy was the second coming. In the AFC Worst, it almost stands to reason that Denver would win the division by default, but we know that won’t last. I thoroughly expect a total beatdown by the Steelers next week and peace will return to the valley.

    As for my Raiders, they totally laid an egg against Sandy Eggo yesterday – very bad showing.

    Elway looks like a fool for trading Orton in a 7-3 win? Really? Who would have ever guessed at 1-4 that Denver would make it to the play-offs. Just sayin…
    ====================================
    Goobs,

    You look like a fool for saying Elway traded Orton. Elway never traded Orton.
