Last week, former Denver Broncos QB Jake Plummer called out current Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow, saying he wanted him to lay off the religious references that Tebow makes during any camera time.

Kurt Warner, who was one of the most openly-religious players during his playing days, believes that Tebow's image would improve if he toned down the frequent references to his religion.
TeboWWWWW! The Broncos got their fifth "W" — four wins in a row, two in overtime, three on fourth- quarter comebacks, every one dramatic in the second half — since Tim Tebow became quarterback.
Tebow wasn't watching as San Diego's Nick Novak lined up to attempt a 53-yard field goal that would have given the Chargers an overtime victory over the Denver Broncos.
For the first time in his six starts this season, Tim Tebow on Sunday completed half of his passes in the Broncos' 16-13 victory against the Chargers, an indication to his bosses that Tebow is continuing to show improvement.

Last week marked more than just another Tim Tebow comeback, another national overreaction to a touchdown dance, and another Sebastian Janikowski/Shane Lechler tag-team performance that would make The British Bulldogs blush.
