Tim Tebow's status under center for next weekend's game might be as shaky as one of his passes.
The Denver Broncos quarterback was erratic and off-target all afternoon in a 45-10 loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday. Tebow had the football stripped from his left hand and scooped up for a TD, threw an interception that was returned 100 yards for a score, and was sacked seven times.
It was a forgettable performance a week after Tebow rallied the Broncos (2-5) from a 15-0 deficit in the final minutes in Miami for an improbable 18-15 overtime win.
Even in that game, Tebow struggled for the first 55 minutes before catching fire at the end. But he couldn't carry the momentum over to the field against the Lions (6-2).
''It's disappointing,'' said Tebow, who completed 18 of 39 passes for 172 yards and one score. ''We need to get a lot better.''
Whether that's with Tebow in charge remains to be seen.
After the contest, Broncos coach Jo...

A few weeks ago, Verizon Wireless contacted MSF with an amazing opportunity. If I agreed to try out one of their phones (equipped with NFL Mobile) and one of their tablets, and blog about my experiences, they would give me the phone, give me the tablet, and fly me to Chicago to stay in the Hard Rock Hotel and attend the Packers/Bears game.
If you are thinking, “No way…that’s...
They tried to bill this game — with the NFL's tacit approval — as a matchup of good vs. evil. But the reality is, that was never quite right. This was simply good vs. bad. The Lions are a good team. The Broncos are not.
Well, that was fast. Not only did Tim Tebow's Broncos get housed by the Lions at home yesterday (18/39, 172 yards, 1TD, 1 INT in a 45-10 loss), he got thoroughly humiliated by a group of Lions defenders who reveled in the quarterback's failure.

Tim Tebow has been limited to four carries for 15 yards. The Broncos started with 0-for-5 accuracy on third down conversions. The sixth attempt led to a complete pass, Tebow to Eddie Royal, but Eric Wright got the stop just short of the first down. Yet another punt for the Broncos. Add two personal
The Detroit Lions sacked Tim Tebow seven times and turned his two turnovers into touchdowns as they snapped a two-game skid with a 45-10 victory over the Denver Broncos. Tebow followed his Miami miracle with a dud in Denver as the Broncos were blown out Sunday. Cornerback Chris Houston had the fourth 100-yard interception return in team history and defensive end Cliff Avril got a...
Denver Broncos coach John Fox is revamping his offense to include more college-style alignments designed to help new starting quarterback Tim Tebow, Fox Sports reported Sunday.
According to the report, Tebow will receive more snaps in the shotgun formation, which could make him more dangerous as a dual-threat option. The offense may have more spread formations as well, the report...
For those on either side of the fence in the Great Tim Tebow debate of 2011, it would appear that everyone will have the second-year quarterback to discuss for at least another week. Despite some speculation that the Denver Broncos might bench Tebow in favor of either Kyle Orton or Brady Quinn after his sub-par performance in a 45-10 demolition at the hands of the Detroit Lions...
Sports Illustrated senior writer Peter King said on the Rich Eisen Podcast that he thinks Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow will not be the team's starter by the Week 11 matchup against the New York Jets.
The NFL's Web site billed it as Good vs. Evil, and as Ndamukong Suh said after the Lions blitzed, battered and mocked Tim Tebow, "Evil prevails." The Lions flustered Tebow with a season-high seven sacks and snapped a troublesome two-game losing streak in grand fashion Sunday, beating the Broncos, 45-10, at Sports Authority Field.
Noted comedy professional Dwight Howard posted this picture to his Twitter account on Saturday evening. If you are unsure what the Orlando Magic center is doing, then I'd like to welcome you to sports blogs. Sometimes the things that happen here are fun!
As I'm sure you all know, Howard is "Tebowing," a posing practice that takes its name and inspiration from...
