Tim Tebow is learning how quickly fortunes can change in the NFL.
Just one week after pundits pronounced Denver's hopes were finished and Tebow was incapable of playing quarterback in the NFL, he helped the Broncos get right back into the AFC West race.
Tebow threw two TD passes and ran for 117 yards, Willis McGahee added 163 yards rushing and two more scores and the Broncos beat the Oakland Raiders 38-24 Sunday.
''I think the definition of that is NFL,'' coach John Fox said. ''It's just the way it is in this league. That's not going to change.''
Even though he looked far from a prototypical NFL quarterback relying on his legs much more than his arm, Tebow frequently used the zone read option play that helped make him so successful in college to win for the second time in three starts this season.

Time is running out on Tim Tebow’s career as a Denver Bronco. The man who brought him in as a first round pick of the Broncos last year, Josh McDaniels is long gone. The man in his place, John Fox, and more importantly, the man making the decisions upstairs, John Elway, will look to trade Tebow in the off-season.
In today’s edition of “Let’s All Talk About Tim Tebow”, we have some comments from Broncos Vice President and NFL HOFer John Elway regarding the heavily scrutinized, 2nd year project quarterback. During his weekly radio show, Elway touches on Tebow‘s accuracy (or lack thereof)and Tebow’s running style among other things, via the Denver Post: “I [...]
“Tebowing” is the latest craze that doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. Lions LB Stephen Tulloch “Tebowed” last Sunday after sacking Tim Tebow, the Denver Broncos QB for which the act is patterned after. 18-year old hockey player Rocco Grimaldi is a devout Christian and he makes no attempts on his Twitter [...]
How Tim Tebow fares as a passer against the Chiefs' secondary will determine how the day goes at Arrowhead Stadium for both he and the Broncos.
If the Denver Broncos can keep running the ball like this, they won't need to rely much on Tim Tebow's arm to win games. Eddie Royal returned a punt 85 yards for the tiebreaking score, Willis McGahee ran for 163 yards and Tebow threw two touchdown passes to lead the Denver Broncos to a 38-24 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
A few weeks ago, it was LeBron James congratulating Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow via Twitter.
Now another Florida-based NBA star is getting in on the action.
Orlando Magic Center Dwight Howard Tweeted a picture of himself and teammate Jameer Nelson doing the Tebow pose this afternoon.
The picture started a public Twitter conversation between the two star athletes...
Well, there is another week in the books and I am pissed in how it turned out. This was my second worst weekend of the season and I am still in shock. I guess this makes the critics happy and those who enjoy longer blogs happy. I wanted to write this last night, but I needed a good nights rest to cool off. This weekend I went 8-6 and I am 95-35 (.731) for the season. I...
