Tim Tebow - #3485 - VIDEO: There You Go Again: Tebow Leads Broncos in Another Comeback Win - The Blaze (2) God's Quarterback - Wall Street Journal (3) Tebow Works in Mysterious Ways - Real Clear Sports


There You Go Again: Tebow Leads Broncos in Another Comeback Win - The Blaze - While his passing efficiency reverted from last week’s positive performance, Bronco Fans and Tebow entusiasts alike are rejoicing as the spirited quarterback led his team back in the fourth quarter and overtime to defeat the Chicago Bears, pushing the Denver record this season with Tebow as a starter to 7 and 1. Denver Broncos kicker Matt Prater’s 59-yard field goal with 2 seconds left in regulation tied the score, and Prater’s 51-yarder with 8:34 left in overtime confirmed the 13-10 win over the Bears. After failing to score on their first 11 possessions, the Broncos erased a 10-0 deficit in the final 2:08 of regulation, first with a scrambling Tebow pass to Wide Receiver Demaryius Thomas in the endzone, then with Prater’s kick following a Tebow drive that began with 58 seconds left on the clock. During overtime the Bears won the crucial toss and were in field goal range to end the game, but Chicago running back Marion Barber fumbled the football at the Broncos 34 and Elvis Dumervil recovered. Tebow finished the game with a 68.3 passer rating which his critics will chastise, but growing nation of fans ignore. To the diminishing group of doubters, Mike Klis of The Denver Post puts it best: “It’s never too late for Tebow Time. There is no antidote, no potion for Tebow Magic. The Broncos’ defense will force a fumble. The kicker will be true from beyond 50 yards. Receivers who were struggling all game with the drops will suddenly make superb catches.”

Tim Tebow - God's Quarterback - Wall Street Journal - On a brisk Thursday evening in mid-November, I sat high in the stands at a Denver Broncos home game, covering the ears of my 4-year-old son as the fans around us launched f-bombs at Tim Tebow, the Broncos' struggling second-year quarterback. Mr. Tebow was ineffective and off-target for most of the game, and one of his more voluble and obnoxious critics was standing right in front of us. But the heckler's friend wasn't joining in. "Just wait until the end of the fourth quarter," he said. "That's Tebow time."  And so it was. In the waning moments against the New York Jets, Mr. Tebow manufactured a 95-yard game-winning drive, punctuated by his own 20-yard touchdown dash. He brought the Broncos back from imminent defeat, just as he had done in previous weeks against the Miami Dolphins, Oakland Raiders and Kansas City Chiefs.  And when the shouting was over, Mr. Tebow did what he always does—he pointed skyward and took a knee in prayer. In postgame interviews, the young quarterback often starts by saying, "First, I'd like to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" and ends with "God bless." He stresses that football is just a game and that God doesn't care who wins or loses.  Read more.........

Tebow Works in Mysterious Ways - Real Clear Sports - . If faith is belief in things unseen, with or without evidence, then I have faith in Tim Tebow's ability as a passer, a leader and a winner. I have faith that he can, as Jimmy Johnson said on the Fox postgame show, "raise his teammates better than anyone I have ever seen."  With their 13-10 victory over the Chicago Bears on Sunday, the Broncos are 7-1 since Tebow became their starting quarterback. I know of no explanation for this that excludes the supernatural.  He apparently has the power to cloud men's minds.  How else can you explain Lovie Smith's fourth-quarter play-calling? For three quarters, the Bears ran the ball 25 times and threw 18 (including sacks). In the fourth, Smith let Caleb Hanie drop back once in 12 offensive plays, content to rack up the three-and-outs while sitting on a 10-0 lead. His refusal to mix it up even after recovering a Tebow fumble proved costly.  Read more.........     Article contributed by Steve Peters.
