John LeybaTim Tebow, the center of attention during the NFL playoffs, stretches during practice on Wednesday.
Every day this week, we’ve run a new online Broncos poll in The Denver Post. We’ve asked fans about strategy, history and popularity. It’s been fascinating to watch.
The votes are in and the fans have spoken. Following is a review of the polls — and my interpretation of the results:
• Following the Broncos’ overtime stunner over the Steelers, we asked who was the game’s MVP? Champ Bailey was a candidate, as was Demaryius Thomas who had 204 yards receiving and caught the game-winning 80-yard touchdown.
But the clear winner was Tim Tebow. He garnered 64.3 percent of the 25,470 votes cast. This was a no-brainer, a softball, and the fans knocked it out of the park. After three bad games, Tebow got up off the mat, played a terrific game and threw the knockout punch that decked the mighty Steelers.
• The controversy of the week swirled around former Broncos coach Josh McDaniels r...
BEST OF MAXIM
Tim Tebow has won games for the Denver Broncos, proving countless scouts and so-called experts wrong along the way. Once the Broncos' season ends, John Elway and the members of the Broncos front office have a heavy decision to make. Should they search for a more prototypical quarterback with a conventional throwing motion, or should they stick with Tebow, who went 7-4 in the...
If it weren't for the five weekdays that separate games, I could easily make the case that NFL playoff time is the very best time there. And even with the break, it's still pretty fantastic. The opening round of the playoffs reminded us of that reality, when even the blowouts were fun to watch. The Saints easily could have lost but ended up winning by 17, and the Giants trailed...
Pop culture nostalgists, take note: a 1985 Billboard chart-topper has gone back to the future, riding the Tebow wave.
John Parr, the Grammy-nominated rocker behind "St. Elmo's Fire (Man in Motion)," has revamped his one-hit-wonder as a stirring ode to Denver Broncos QB Tim Tebow.

If Tim Tebow is playing, chances are we’ll hear from his old college buddy, Aaron Hernandez. That was the case yesterday. The Patriots playmaker discussed the Broncos QB, while also hitting on how much better he feels this year leading in to the playoffs than last year. Check out my video:
DENVER Could LeBron James get out of Denver without talking about Tim Tebow?
Not a chance.
James, the Miami Heat star forward in town for Friday night's game against the Nuggets, was asked about Tebow both after a Thursday workout and following a shootaround Friday. He sees some similarities between himself and the Denver Broncos quarterback, who has had success despite often...
1. Sign Tim Tebow
Love him or hate him, Tim Tebow has become the face of, not just the franchise, but the entire league. He is obviously not the prototypical quarterback, and will never be a John Elway, a Tom Brady, or a Peyton Manning. It's just nice to see a player win with heart. This city needs him.
If it were up to me, Champ Bailey would be on...
Former NFL quarterback Trent Dilfer spoke at the Hood Hargett Breakfast Club in Charlotte Friday, and he was complimentary of Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who he said would "change the game" in the NFL with his skills and work ethic.
He was not as kind in discussing Denver quarterback Tim Tebow, who has the Broncos in the divisional round of the AFC...

Champs of the Game:
Tom Brady - Who woulda thunk it? Terrific Tom taking apart the Denver Tebow's defense was almost a foregone conclusion, but no one thought he was gonna blow up like this. 26/34, 363 yards, 6 TD's, and a 137.6 passer rating. He breaks the yards record, passing record, and he punts...all before the 4th quarter! What can this guy not do? Sit on the bench...
There's no shortage of compelling storylines in the NFL this weekend.
Unless you've been living under a rock with no access to ESPN, you're surely aware that Tim Tebow and Tom Brady are playing in New England. That would be enough to have everyone's hearts fluttering, but when you throw in former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels, the man who brought Tebow to Denver...
