As if there weren’t enough religious references and images enveloping the Denver Broncos and quarterback Tim Tebow, Jay Glazer of FOX reports that Tebow delivered a speech to his teammates on Saturday morning urging the team to play the role of David, against the Goliaths known as the Patriots.
Glazer says Tebow received a standing ovation for his passionate remarks. In a few hours, we’ll find out whether it pushes the Broncos toward another postseason victory.
The formula for beating the Pats in the postseason is simple, albeit not necessarily easy. The opponent needs to rattle the Patriots early, hitting and hurrying and flustering Tom Brady and knocking the offense out of a rhythm. And so while it may take another Tebow heroic to deliver the win, the Broncos will pull this one off only if the defense can contain one of the best offenses in the league.
