I think this proves once and for all that writers come to message boards for material.

I love the circle jerk. Tebow is at the center and not one **** is given by him.

the coverage this is getting is ridiculous. I am amazed. It's pretty much the lead story, and there was a world series game tonight.

If Tebow sent you a wonderful handwritten Christmas card you'd defend him too..

Yup...
Today we saw the worst and the best of Tebow.
He provided enough ammunicion to his critics to shoot at him, and enough ammunicion to his supporters to shoot back...
I've said Tebow will start to really play better in another 5 games.
The speed of the game will have by then slowed down for him.
We saw that today. It was very understandable, he was not in sync with his receivers and it looked like he was forcing himself to stay in the pocket.
He didn't know if to stay or to run.

I think the way the game was called it was to keep him on a short leash, that was evidenced by the number of running plays called. It was as though they didn't trust him throwing the ball. Tebow's got to have sensed that. That was killing his confidence without a doubt.
I really don't understand why his critics were quick to crucify the guy as if he was a 5-year veteran. Give me a break!
Perhaps the expectations were too high today, and when he didn't bring the excitement everybody was looking for, the depression set it.

Give the guy a chance to keep working on his game. The play calling was horrible, but when we needed the win, it was Tebow time.
Let him do what he does best. Let him play his game and he'll be alright.

Tebow's team became the first to rally from a deficit of at least 15 points in the final three minutes since at least 1983, according to STATS LLC. (they said in nfl history on espn but think they may have misspoke , either way)

Another thing of note was Bailey, Dawkins, and several other players hugged Tebow right after the game.

MacGruder. When Tim Tebow was drafted by the Broncos I went and drank an 18 pack of Bush Light.

Guess what I did because of Tebow's late game excitement?
