Default McGahee:"Me and you gotta win this game."

From MMQB:

Quote:
Stop saying Denver's fluky, because it's a lie. The recipe for the Broncos winning five of six is not Tebow, Tebow and more Tebow. It's defense and the running game keeping things close. It's Von Miller and Elvis Dumervil rushing the passer and keeping him uncomfortable, and a reborn Willis McGahee (4.8 yards per carry at age 31) pounding defenses with the changeup ability of Tebow thrown in. And Eric Decker making circus catches. That about covers it.

"If it ain't broken, and it ain't, then don't fix it," McGahee told me from San Diego Sunday night. It was a 23-carry, 117-yard day by McGahee, with his 24-yard run in overtime setting up the winning field goal that led to the 16-13 overtime win. Afterward, McGahee said the game had the feel of another close one, and he said to Tebow in the middle of the second half, "Me and you gotta win this game." And the two men combined to do it, helped by a third-and-11 conversion catch by Decker that was upheld by review on the game-tying drive at the end of the fourth quarter. You know, when Tebow takes over. "It's cool everybody doubts us," McGahee said. "Don't respect us. All we know is, if it's close at the end, we're gonna win."

That's incredible.

Tebow's clutch dominance is what the team has to believe in. They want to join in and get the job done.

What has happened with the Broncos is that they have ditched the loser mentality and have replaced it with a tough-minded winners mentality.

When you have guys like McGahee saying things like this that mirror what Von Miller has been saying about fighting with Tebow to the end...something unique is happening in Denver.

These guys are playing far above their talent level.

Tebow has turned this franchise around. Just imagine what its going to be like when he refines his passing game. This could be the most brutal, morale-defeating offense in years. It just grinds the other team down when you can run the ball down their throats at will.

this is the most interesting football team i think ive ever watched. you literally dont know what to expect when tebows offense is on the team, and its weird to say given what weve seen the last several years, but i am more excited to see the defense on the field than offense.

Now that the team has bought in, has the taste of winning on their tongues, and may even have visions of division titles dancing in their heads...its going to be really hard to replace Tebow next season.

The team has his back and have shown it in a way they never did with Orton...by raising their level of play all over the field.

Tebow has always been appreciated by the defense, and it isnt any wonder that the defense has been motivated because they know he can get it done if they keep giving him chances.

i read the defense likes his juggernaut style of play, he plays offense like a defender. people will try all day to discredit his mark on the team, but you cant deny his impact and if you do you are being dense. i dont see why its so hard to see that denver went from an average defense and running game to a TOP defense and running game as soon as he entered.

the broncos are a tough team that i dont think many teams WANT to play, especially with vondoom being the bookends we all hoped they would.

Von Miller.

He and Dumervil will be just ridiculous next season. How the heck do you stop that? These are two of the top 10 pass rushing talents in the league.

This team could be really good next year of the front office has a good offseason.

The Broncos are the ugly monster in a league full of pretty princesses.

Youre absolutely right when you say that nobody will want to play them. Theyll beat up defenses with the run game and beat up offenses with the pass rush. They turn the game into a slugfest that only the patient boxer can win by playing conservatively and waiting for an opening to land a killer blow.

What is becoming evident is that the Broncos have provided a new type of challenge for a league whos talent, coaching, and experience is in dealing with the new NFL sanctioned finesse passing game. They shorten the game and keep your offense out of rhythm by giving them fewer posessions (forcing them to be flawless in execution on every posession), and keeping them off the fields for chunks of time on most posessions.

Denver is unique.

As a fan of underdogs, innovation, and creativity, this Broncos team is a lot of fun.

Tebow's ability to make the run game unstoppable combined with the defenses ability to punish the QB from Von and Doom is a devastating combination.

Tebow making the run game so dominant allows the defense to rest a lot. So when they do get on the field they are well rested to attack the opposing QB. Tebow giving the D rest is also very beneficial because the Broncos best players on D are older. So it's a very complementary dynamic there.

Just imagine how good this D will be when they start getting 2-3 TD leads. VonDoom pinning there ears back and destroying QB's. I love this team. This young offense is only gonna get better. It's gonna be fun to be a Broncos fan again for years to come.

What they are doing now, with what they have on roster, is GREAT!

But to win championships, they need some more pieces to the puzzle imo.

The 'New and Improved' -- 'Orange Crush' is now being formed.

IF there was some way to add both;
WR Justin Blackmon OkSt and the Bama RB Trent Richardson to the offense,
then it would be an all out Bronco Stampede next season.

Sneak in former Gator, current S.Ala CB Janoris Jenkins,
while adding quality/depth to the OL & DL,
>>> 'And They're Off'!

What - Where - When - Why - How

Tebow just needs some 'quality time' to work with his receivers, which the Broncos have never given him.
Plus they traded away both Gaffney and Lloyd before starting Tebow this season. (WTF were they thinkin')
They 1st cut his legs (arms) out from under him, and then whine about his 3rd downs and Comp%.

At UF, Tim threw for 67% with an SEC Record Career 170.79 PER
Why?
Because he had guys that were well trained by Gator coaches and they worked hard to win NC's,
before moving on to play in the NFL:

Bengals WR Andre Caldwell,
Raiders WR Louis Murphy,
Vikings WR/RB Percy Harvin,
Eagles WR Riley Cooper,
Bills WR David Nelson,
Pats TE Aaron Hernandez

And he was standing behind the Pouncey twins and Marcus Gilbert on his OL (among others).

There's nothing wrong with Tebow as the QB, that some quality Bronco help won't fix.
As for can Tim improve, that's just STU-PID,
EVERY PLAYER can improve if they work hard enough.
Von Miller said that he's NEVER seen ANYBODY that worked as hard as Tebow does,,, everyday.

Good Days are a-comin' for the Broncos....

Best thing about McGahee in this situation is where he comes from. He's seen a team have a lot of success winning black and blue ugly... He lived it for quite a few years in Baltimore.

It is a fact, John Elway is a proven cancer in the locker room, his wedge of doubt in Tebow is a contagion that has got to be removed before this team implodes.

McGahee needs to STFU, he had much better stats the first 5 games than the last 6 yet the team still wound up going 1-4, and they had Brandon lloyd as a passing threat to boot.

77 yards per game first 5 games with 384 yards with 1 TD

65 yards per game last 6 games with 391 yards with 2 TD's

McGahee turned the ball over twice in his last 6 games and zero times in his first 5 games.

McGahee didn't play in one of those 6 games, and wasn't 100% in the next. But just counting the games he played, his YPG is higher in his last 5 than the first 5, with that extra TD.

Plus he only had 4 carries in the Chiefs game before he got hurt. Which basically means you could only count 4 of those 6 games.

Which would mean he's blowing his first 5 games out of the water.

Coming to the Mane used to be like hitting a six iron sweet, watching a nice, arching draw to a raised green, knowing you had stuck the pin, pulling the putter out of the bag as you walk up the hill...

but with you Teboners infesting this site, it's like getting to the green and seeing it all covered with goose ****.

It is what it is... I am so sick of all the attempts to sweep the revelation of Tebows significants to the winning cycle we are in, under the rug.

I don't want to hear "MEgahee" when a guy only averages 37 yards in 3 of the 5 wins.

Tebow has 5 times the TD's and more rushing yards than McGahee the past 6 games.

But for some reason McGahee is the one who is recognized as the leader of the team, despite the fact he was not even here last year? despite the fact when he had the biggest impact on the team this season they went 1-4. Leader? Really?
