NBC Los Angeles:
The Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and the general consensus is that Tim Tebow and the Broncos will be drummed out of the playoffs in short order. And why wouldn't people think that?
Tebow was putrid in his final two games this season, games the Broncos were desperately trying to win. He completed just 37% of his passes. He threw four picks. Even Tebow's vaunted running game was snuffed out, as he averaged just 3.2 yard per carry against the Bills and Chiefs. Those aren't exactly stout defense that have bottled up Tebow, and now he has to face a Steelers defense that, once again, led the league. All of it spells doom for the Broncos.
HOWEVAH, there is another option. Any other QB would have been benched for completing just 37% of his passes. But since Tebow is a magical unicorn fairy who can turn entire oceans into mulled wine, he somehow gets a pass. Well, I say to heck with that. I say, given that John Fox never wanted Tebow as hi...

STOP HORSING AROUND
Count Denver radio host Mike Evans as at least the second person to get a Tim Tebow tattoo after losing a bet.
Evans was hosting his show on Sports 104.3 the Fan in Denver when he made a wager with a caller who said the Broncos would win 8 games this season. The team was 2-4 at the time. Sure enough, the Broncos went on a six-game winning streak and finished 8-8.
On Sunday, the Denver Broncos will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in a much-hyped wildcard playoff game. Much of the hype surrounding the game revolves around Tim Tebow and the Broncos' improbable run into the playoffs. It makes for a good story, and there's no doubt it'll result in some compelling pre-game coverage, but despite what the Broncos would have you believe...
Reports out of Denver are saying that the Broncos could bench the Holy Boy if he struggles against the Steelers in this weekend’s playoff matchup. What exactly does that mean? It means there is about a 70% chance that Brady Quinn is going to start the second half Sunday afternoon. Denver is already looking for a reason to find a new quarterback to anchor the team into the...
Tim Tebow's first NFL playoff appearance has been shaping up as a battle for the soul of modern-day professional football.
The cult of the quarterback has been threatened since the day Tebow started winning games for the Broncos. If his team beats the Steelers on Sunday, expect the cult's true...
The Broncos will need QB Tim Tebow to be aggressive Sunday against Pittsburgh, minus his recent mistakes.
The Steelers have been preparing for Tim Tebow all week. Now they will have to go back and look at tape on Brady Quinn. Quinn reportedly took half of the teams first team reps and has specific packages that he will run against the Steelers. Quinn is expected to come in on second and long and then again on third and long. The Broncos have lost trust in Tebow to throw the ball...
Bronco fans remember when their beloved team went to the Super Bowl all the time with John Elway at the helm, and little else. A few years later, add Terrell Davis, Shannon Sharpe, and arguably the best offensive line in history, and you have two consecutive Super Bowl titles.
Those days are long gone, a new era of greatness merely a little tiny wish for the unforeseeable...
