    It's not just Tebow. This entire team feels that the 4th quarter belongs to them. When Tebow went out of bounds at the 42 with seconds left in the game, no one could seriously have thought they'd see overtime.

    Can this be explained?
    Tebow was 3-for-16 for 45 yards passing during the first three quarters and then 15-20 for 163 yards in the fourth. On their first scoring drive, Tebow went 7-for-7 for 63 yards
    I saw it, and I still can't believe it.

    Here's the thing that frustrates me the most...Tebow, yes, it is what it is...but that game was OVER. PERIOD. Then Marion Barber III took a handoff.

    SportsCenter just threw out this stat:

    In the first 3 quarters of games, Tebow's QBR is 19.5 (worst in the league).

    In the 4th quarter, Tebow's QBR is 97.3 (best in the league).

    Unfriggin' real. SMH.
    Screw you guys, I'm going home.

    It's Denver's whole style with Tebow. They're insanely physical. I played teams like them in HS. They're patient. They don't care if they go 3 and out every couple drives. They're going to line up, smash you, lull you to sleep, and then strike when you're battered. That's why the games are so close.

    Great point. The Broncos are a real throwback.

    They don't turn the ball over, they spend three quarters wearing the opposing team down physically and mentally, and they simply wait for the other team to make that big mistake in the big spot, which could easily be attributed to them wearing down over the previous three quarters.

    They're like the NFL version of former tennis player Michael Chang. He did nothing spectacular, he just never made mistakes. Even if he was unable to move, like against Ivan Lendl in the French Open a number of years ago, he'd make things as awkward as possible, never make a mistake, and force you to blink. That's what the Broncos do better than any team in the league right now.

    I have always been a Tebow believer but this is getting too ridiculous even for me to comprehend.

    The Patriots are the litmus test for the Broncos. If the Broncos can beat the Pats, then the Broncos could go to the Suepr Bowl (they're still not beating the Packers, but I'd be quite nervous if Tebow was within 2 scores in the 4th quarter to be sure).

    Yeah, rip is spot on. If the Pats come out and pulverize them then we know this team isn't what it's cracked up to be. This Broncos team is very good and was good with Orton at QB too. Orton turned the ball over too many times and that's why Tebow is successful. The Broncos lost 4 games under Orton 23-20 to Oakland, 17-14 to Tennessee, 49-23 to Green Bay, and 29-24 to Oakland. What is interesting is they're only +1 in turnovers during the span Tebow has played. They were -5 under Orton. 9 in 8 games with Tebow, 12 in 5 with Orton. That's the difference and it's made those close losses into close wins (just 2 of the 7 wins with a margin of higher than 4 points).
