Denver-broncos

tebowchargersI am just asking.

For those of you who have been reading my work, you know my stance on Tim Tebow.

He acts like a perfect gentleman. He says all the right things. He gives it his all each and every day. He has had no legal issues. He is not in trouble with the law. He has the support from his teammates. He is not involved with drugs/alcohol. Oh yeah, he is 6-1 as a starting quarterback this season in the NFL. Also, he has over 10 touchdowns, with only 1 interception. Anything else?

Yes, one more thing! He gets relently bashed and criticized repeatedly for some reason.

That is my problem with all of the coverage he gets. I love watching Tebow play as much as the next guy. I am a big fan. My only problem is all the negativity surrounding him? Why? The man done nothing wrong. If he was quitting on his team during games - I would understand.

If he was arrested every few months - I would understand. If he gets in fights at late night strip clubs - I would understand. If he was 2-5 as a starting QB - I would understand.

The fact is he is doing nothing wrong, and on top of that, he wins football games. Tell me again where all the hating comes in again...oh yeah, his style of play. His throwing motion! His footwork! Oh no! Alert the police, he throws the ball a little different than others. Uh oh, he moves around too much...HOW DARE HE!!! Let's just kick him out of the league now, why don't we?

Seriously though, back to my beginning question.

This week, the Denver Broncos (led by Tebow) play the weakened Chicago Bears. It is no mystery that Chicago's starting QB (Jay Cutler) is out. It is all no secret that their back up is not exactly doing so hot right now. That being said, it seems to me Tebow is about to win yet another game. It will be tough, no doubt, but I know I am not about to bet against TouchDown Timmy!

On the flip side, the Broncos' division rival (Oakland Raiders) play against the undefeated Green Bay Packers. Ouch! I am from Wisconsin, so I have some bias, but I am already chalking up a loss for the Raiders. Packers give up a ton of points, but they should win this one easily.

Now, for those doing the math - that would put the Denver Broncos in a nice lead for the AFC West division title! I would love to know what the reaction will be come Monday morning when Tim Tebow is 7-1 and in first place of their division.

I really want to know. What will the talking point be then for everybody? What will the excuse be this time? How will the "experts" on TV spin this one? What little nitpick is going to show up this game? Surely, it has to be something, right?

Clearly, everybody is right and Tebow is wrong. He is a terrible quarterback and all the talking heads know what they are talking about...yeah, good one! So again, I ask this to all the Tebow haters, doubters, cynics - whatever you call yourself: what will you do if Tebow wins again this week? Or next week? Or the following week? Or gathers a playoff run?

Continue to try and spin the issue in your favor, despite the clear facts against you? Or perhaps, maybe, just maybe - admit you were wrong about Tim Tebow.

Tebow Time Tattoo would make A-Rod Jealous

Walk into Alex Rodriguez's house, you see the huge picture of himself as a half-man, half-horse (centaur). Look at this man's thigh, you see Tim Tebow as a centaur.

Elway determined to succeed with Tebow

John Elway doesn't hate Tim Tebow. If he did, Elway wouldn't have personally apologized for recent comments that made it seem the Denver Broncos' commitment to Tebow was lacking.

You may already know CBS and NBC are fighting over Tim Tebow for a possible Week 15 Flex Game, but that only begins to tell the story of the infinitely expanding media obsession with Tim Tebow.  I foolishly anticipated as Tebow played more minutes in Denver, we would get used to the idea of him playing in the NFL and he would fade away from being the most talked about man in...

McDaniels left more than Tebow and turmoil behind

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated.) By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer Josh McDaniels. The mere mention of his name brings back bitter, embarrassing memories in Denver.

The coach who believed in Tim Tebow...

Lovie Smith talks Tebow, Cutler, Forte

Smith was engaging in...
