Default Interesting stat

What happened was that the Broncos became the first team since the AFL-NFL merger to win after trailing by 15 or more points with less than three minutes remaining, according to the Elias Stats Bureau.

How much more evidence do we need that the conservative play calling is the problem not Tebow.. hell.. even Orton got a worse rap than he should have for the same reason.

When you play so conservatively it helps the opposing D. You just can't be so predictable.. and the longer it takes to start loosening it up the longer it takes to get the offense going.

Definitely.They should adjust the offense to run the spread at least 70% of the game, with your traditional under-center plays mixed in.

That's a neat stat - a good quote from Dawkins from that link:

“When he gets to crunch time, he trusts what he sees more. That’s what I see. He trusts things and just lets it fly,” safety Brian Dawkins said. “Early on, he was second-guessing things, but my thing is just let it go. You see it, let it go, and we’ll deal with the result.”

Someone needs to tell Dawkins that both Orton and Tebow did/do the same thing.. they don't start getting aggressive until the game is out of reach..

What does that tell you?

The difference is Orton only had one gear while Tebow has overdrive, 4-wheel drive and a hover mode..

I heard someone say 6 or 8 teams started new QBs today and Tebow was the only one that won, too.

Your stat is cooler but it wasn't a bad day, in the end.
