I DONT GIVE A **** IF WE WERE LUCKY! WE WON THE MOTHER ****ING GAME!

Tebow sucks for 3.5 Quarters but he was AWESOME in the end.

DEFENSE Makes a huge play (2 passes defensed in OT from a Kansas Jayhawk...ROCK CHALK!) and we win the mother ****ing game!

God dammit Im so happy.

I just have no idea. I came into this game wondering if I was going to want us to lose; through 3 and a half quarters, I knew one thing: I didn't want us to lose, but this was the worst offensive performance I had ever seen in my life. Then Sporano goes for two like an idiot and I'm like "is this the set up...?" and all of a sudden what

I mean. The nice things: when we kicked that onside kick, I knew we were going to get it. When Fells made that catch, I knew we were going to score. When we scored, I knew we were going to get the two pointer. So.

Can we try to trick Tebow into believing that all the quarters are the fourth quarter? Is that something that can be done? Like, through hypnosis or something?

(part of it, though, was still the terrible defensive calls by the Dolphins, who basically went in prevent mode with 6 minutes still to go against a QB who hadn't proven anything to anyone)

Shannon Sharpe is not on board. Timmy thanks "His lord and savior, Jesus Christ."

Fun game. On the other hand, it took everything the Broncos had, plus a bunch of luck, to pull out a game in OT against the worst team in football.

How often does Prater miss 2 FGs in a game? With that 6 points, Denver wins the game in regulation.

Gary Busey is ugly and so is Fester Addams, this win was like the bastard child of those two gentlemen who had been savagely beaten with an ugly stick - it was appaling in every way, but it was a win and beggars can't be choosers.

And another part was the total misuse of TT's abilities by really predictable play calling. Where was the designed roll-out?

Today was mostly our lines getting blown-up and Tebow acting like a rook.

This was a team win. Players that were failing, suddenly made some plays and they won:
Prater, DJ, Willis, and Tebow...amongst others sucked on certain plays and came up golden on others (game changers).

Well put. The piss poor coaching doesn't excuse Tebow's early struggles, but they sure as **** didn't help them.

Yup. It was looking like another one of those games too. False starts or illegal shifts after every good play. Dolphins were lining up offsides and no call. Bad things happen when we play the Dolphins. It just took Tebow 55 minutes to get that curse dealt with and then he was balling.

Seriously though. 15 points in two minutes and forty four seconds? Unbelievable.

That onside kick was pretty awesome too. Nice way to separate the ball from the WR

When was the last time we recovered an onsides kick ... the 1970s?

Not pretty of course, but might portend more (dare I say) Elway-esque finishes?

Chris Berman on ESPN said last night that this was the 1st time since the merger that a team came back after being down by more than 14 pts. w/ just 3 mins. to go.

Combine that with the 0-7 stat...I don't know about luck, more like divine intervention. :notworthy

That was my first thought......a few here are saying we were lucky Miami went for a 2-pt conversion....

I say we were unlucky that Praeter missed 2 FG's that he should have made.....then we wouldn't have needed overtime. Heck when we were down 15-7 we wouldn't have needed a TD with a 2-pt conversion. Instead, the score would have been 15-13....and all we would have needed was another FG to win in regulation.

Whatever. This was far more exciting.

peter king nails it:


You can't stop Tebowmania. You can only hope to contain it. That wasn't a football game in south Florida. It was a movie. I have four thoughts about Tebow 18, Miami 15:

1. I'm sure this is because Tebow hasn't given offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and coach John Fox reason to think he's ready to play an Aaron Rodgers, bombs-away type of game, but that was the most conservative, buttoned-up gameplan Denver had for most of the game. If you're going to give the guy a chance to win the starting job, you've got to let him play more than this gameplan allowed. A win's a win, but I thought the Broncos were to the right of Michele Bachmann in the game.

2. I don't see how Fox and John Elway know anything more about Tebow this morning than they knew 24 hours ago. This was an incredible victory, unlikely and exciting and wonderful for the fan base. But in terms of knowing whether Tebow has a chance to be your quarterback of the present or future? Nothing got solved. He didn't have a chance to do much in the regular offense, he wasn't accurate for 54 minutes, he led a frenetic rally and wanted the ball in his hands with the game on the line, he was clutch in the two-minute offense, he threw a perfect strike between two defenders to keep the game-tying drive going, he had the presence of mind to call an audible on the tying two-point conversion, and he delivered with the game on the line. Knew all that.

3. Love the fact he had the presence of mind (assist to Urban Meyer) and felt good enough about the offense, and confident enough, that he audibled from a run left to a run right when he sensed two linebackers creeping up from the left on the two-point conversion. There was actually only one. "Before we ran the play, Miami called timeout,'' he told me. "We got a sense of what they were going to do and called our play, but after the timeout, it looked like they were going to a zero look.'' In other words, all 11 men near the line, no one trolling the middle of the end zone for a pass. The audible entails left guard Zane Beadles pulling to the right to wall off the pressure along with tight end Daniel Fells, and for Tebow to sneak in behind them. Worked like a charm. Tebow quick-faked a pass, then tucked it under and ran just to the right of Beadles, who blocked safety Yeremiah Bell, and the game was tied.

Just to add to Tebow Fevor, Kerry Byrne of Cold Hard Football Facts emailed me with this last night: In four starts, Tebow now has two fourth-quarter comebacks from at least 13 points down. In John Elway's career, guess how many he had. Two.

Final point: Tebow's high school team, from Jacksonville, won the 2005 Florida state championship on this field. Tebow's college team, Florida, won the 2008 national championship on this field. And now, with his professional career in Denver on the line, he won a scintillating 18-15 game on this field, with 10,000 tickets sold to Gator fans in the two weeks before the game, once they learned Tebow would be starting for Denver. As Tebow was dressing after the game, a longtime Orange Bowl official, in his orange blazer, shook Tebow's hand. "You've had some great memories here, haven't you?'' the guy said.

"This,'' said Tebow, "was something special. We really fought hard for this. After we scored to make it 15-7, Champ Bailey came up to me and said, 'We're gonna get the ball back for you.' They did. It was so exciting.''

He said, "This isn't the way we planned it. I know I have to play a lot better. I can make more plays. But who we are as a team came out at the end of the game.''
