You have an old photo of Champ without his awesome beard.

Even this one is a bit dated as the beard is now at least an inch thicker.

And speaking of Champ, he's already booked a First Class ticket on the Tebow Express. The dude has nothing but positive things to say about Tebow.

He stopped Teebs and had some things to say after that TD.

Champ has been a real team leader in the transition. I think that defensive guys respect Tebow in a way that offensive players usually don't appreciate.

True that ACB ... Seems like no matter if Tim does good or bad Champ is always the first person to meet him as he comes of the field.

I think Champ loves the kid as a person. I have never seen a player (Tim) get hugged by coaches as much as this guy... Dude's a hugger ...

And might I add Champ's locker room comments after the game on Tim was damn near touching.

The video lead in to the game had a close-up shot of Champ + his beard, so I grabbed a frame from that.

Champ's eyes remind me a little of Michael Jordan.

Talk about a self-indulgent thread. Who are you, Joe Bronco, Lord of All Things Broncos? Unfortunately, there are many who have tangled up their religious beliefs with their football on this board and can't remove their love of their religion from their love of Tebow. Those of us who simply ignore the religious angle have never lost our involvement in Broncos football, our fandom, or our interest, even though there has been an almost constant effort to shove this religious side down our throats. Hell, there are numerous, highly religious players in the game, and have been for many years. And they've been pointing at the sky and praying together on the field for many years. Never was it such an issue as it is with Tebow. Now, if you question Tebow's passing, it's because of his religion.

It may be hard for you to believe, but many of us who disagree with Tebow's overt religiosity still like Tebow for his effort, his optimism, his innocence and his competitiveness. He has a Dudley Do-right persona that is infectious (for instance when he stopped on his way to an interview last night to sign some kid's jersey). Who doesn't love that? Or mentioning to Michael Irvin that his receivers are not selfish. I don't know if he did that innocently or not, but it sure as hell had me ROFL.

And yet we still question his ability to make it in the NFL because of his difficulty with the passing game. And we still wonder if he's the long term answer at QB for the Broncos. But that's strictly a football question. Some of those who are deeply invested in Tebow's religion can't accept that the religion and the football are two different things. Ergo, there's no need for us to come to the drama llama as fallen angels, for his benediction .

Winning makes everything feel better, though. So, I'm not going to stop enjoying what's happening. Tebow's a damn fun player to watch. And I'm excited to watch what Fox does with this option offense. Face it, Orton was a bore. The excitement is back in Broncos Nation. Part of that excitement is that this team is wandering into unknown territory and charting a new path in the national game. Got to love it.

I for one find the constant media panning to Tebow in his personal moments of prayer gratuitous and exploitive. Leave the dude alone, and stop subjecting all of us to it. The commercialization of religion is bogus.

I did find it intrusive when the camera followed him over to the sidelines and filmed him behind the bench. But that's the nature of the NFL spotlight.

There is no reason for any Bronco fan to choose not to enjoy this run we're on.

We just won 3 games in a row.

A kinda fun, rah rah Tebow piece on Grantland this afternoon:

http://www.grantland.com/blog/the-tr...d-the-miracles

Quote:
For most of the night, I was looking for a reason why. Why Mark Sanchez (who, for all his problems, has led the Jets to consecutive AFC Championship games) was getting nothing but shade from Plaxico Burress and hot, angry breath from offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer while Tebow, who was playing quarterback with the grace of an ice-skating Bambi, was getting the undying support of his teammates.

For the answer, go back to 3:55 remaining in the fourth quarter. Tebow, barely bothering to look upfield, cradles the ball and takes off like a Greyhound bus driven by a meth head. There on the horizon, he sees the usually unwelcoming vista that is Revis Island. And what does he do? Does he trot out of bounds and save some clock and spare himself the contact? Nope. He barrels over Revis like a hurricane, stays in bounds, and gets that much closer to the end zone.

...

Because at the end of the game, it might just be 13-10 and you might just have a shot. You might just be 20 yards out and your quarterback might just be able to run like Mike Alstott. And with the home crowd losing their minds in the thin air, and the terrifying Jets defense on their back foot and everyone in America watching because your very average AFC West team has become the center of the football universe, your quarterback might just do the one thing he was put on Earth to do: make a perfect read on a safety who is overcommitted to the inside and take off with only one destination in mind. He might do what he said he would, what he asked you to believe he could do. He might just win the damn thing for you.

Did you expect anything less from the llama, the Mane's resident right wing nutjob and religious extremist? If it doesn't fit his agenda, it's not worth talking about.
