Jay threw for a ton of yards and we were ahead, but the defense gave up a couple late 4th quarter TDs and we lost. People SAVAGED poor Jaybee cause he didn't march right down the field Elway-style and save the day. I mean people DAMNED and CURSED poor Jay-bee. Weird.
Because that was the last memory of that season. If the Raiders had beaten the Chargers I'm certain Tebow would still being slaughtered for that performance.
But Tebow had a chance to redeem himself the week after, he did that and more...
