Default Tim Tebow Gives Denver Broncos Legit Chance to Upset Ailing Steelers

Tim Tebow Gives Denver Broncos Legit Chance to Upset Ailing Steelers


By Dan Renfro(Featured Columnist) on January 1, 2012




Tim Tebow Mania has reached the playoffs, and an upset could be brewing in Pittsburgh.


The Denver Broncos are a dangerous team.


They are riding a three game losing streak, and they have looked pretty terrible these past few weeks. Nevertheless, I think they have a legitimate chance of beating the Pittsburgh Steelers.


The Broncos defense is extremely tough. They are smart, and more importantly, they are one of the fastest units in football. Teams can't do much against them, and it will stay that way.


They don't feast off turnovers or do anything spectacular. Instead, they just prevent the opponents from going anywhere. Ben Roethlisberger is not at 100% and he probably won't be by next week.


With him struggling, I expect the Broncos to put serious pressure on him. Meanwhile, Rashard Mendenhall may have a torn ACL.


With one weapon dinged up and another one out, the Steelers offense will not play too well, allowing the Broncos to make some plays on the defensive side of the ball.


Assuming the defense plays well, the Broncos will be competitive. However, that is not nearly enough to win. They need something more than just good defense to win. They need something bigger than a simple player or strategy.


They need Tebow.


Tebow hasn't looked good for a few weeks now. However, this upcoming week will be where he turns it around.



He's clutch, he's a gamer and he understands the stage. If he performs in the playoffs, people might start to take him seriously as a quarterback.


It's a process for Tebow, but his talents will provide the Steelers with trouble.


If he is able to break loose and run around a little more than he has these past three weeks, then the Steelers will break down. Tebow can do more damage outside the pocket than in it, and he needs to capitalize on that.


If he does that, Tebow will be the difference in the game.


The Broncos are good enough to hang around, and be competitive.


Tebow is good enough to win them the game and pull off the upset.

tebow doesn't call the plays. neither does he catch the ball. so unless mccoy that ****head actually uses the RB's, the TE's in the passing game and starts to open up the playbook a little, i dont think anything is going to change. tebow is not gonna beat the steelers with the option running, they have one of the toughest front 7 in football and they create turnovers. in order to win we have to open up the playbook, throw some screens (always works well with aggressive defenses) and so on. also the WR's (outside of DT) should show up and make some catches.

the article basically makes it sound like the only reason this offense struggled the past few weeks was because tebow was off. right. everything else is already in place. a great coordinator, elite receivers... the only thing that holds us back is tebow.

With only 2 passing plays in the entire 1st quarter, and only 2 passing plays in the 4the quarter outside of the last minute, is it any wonder Tebow looked like crap yesterday?

Fox once again slammed the breaks on Tebow by allowing 3 times as many rushing plays as he did passing, outside of the last minute where Tebow had 7 straight passing plays. Fox once again waited till he abandoned the run to unleash Tebow.

There where 2 drives in the 4th quarter where Tebow did not even get to attempt a pass. This makes 4 games this season where Tebow was held under 100 yards passing.

3 times the rushing plays as passing outside of the last minute of the game? Are you kidding me, is it any wonder why we only scored 3 points?

All that time Fox spent owning the TOP with the rushing offense, did nothing more than rob Tebow of the precious time he needed to bring this team back from behind once he was unleashed. It sucks when you don't even have enough time to run for a yard, instead of being forced to throw a predictable sideline pass.

Fox is a hypocrite, guy allowed Orton to possess more passing plays in the first half of the first game than the passing attempts Tebow had in his entire last game. Fox absolutely refusing to allow Tebow to take the glory off the field is what is killing the Broncos.

Fox and Elway now have Tebow exactly where they want him, as a laughingstock.

Hell you can now throw the 1st quarter and you might as well throw in the 14minutes of the 4th of this game where Tebow only had 2 passing attempts to the 5 out of 6 quarters the past two games outside of the 4th quarters where Tebow averaged just two passing attempts per game. You can take the last minute of the third quarter if you have too, it still adds up to two passing attempts in a 15 minute stretch.

Two passing attempts on average in 7 quarters out of the last 12. Now that is how you sabotage a QB, nearly 2 games worth of quarters where Tebow is only averaging 2 passing attempts per quarter.

Fox and Elway need to get fired for rufusing to execute an offense that allows tebows body of work not to be handicapped by a lack of rythm and chemistry being established for this young passing corp.

These three games ought to have been used to unleash tebow to see what we see, rather than confine him to the straight jacket of a sabotaging scheme.

Fox and Elway need to be fired if this team is going to have a shot at the Super Bowl. We can't allow them to keep tebow in a straight Jacket until its too late... this is total BS and its time for this fan base and media to get up in arms about it.

You mean Tebow can play better than he is but Elway and Fox are secretly making those reads throws for him?

If the game plan once again is to run every 1st down, and most 2nd downs, and run deep pass routes on every 3rd down, then I would be surprised to see much done offensively by the Broncos. The Steelers have been known for their defense for years and I don't think that will quite confuse them much.

Actually no.. the coaches have shown they don't think offense is even important. It's just something they use to set up their defense..

Open receivers? How can you get receivers open when you run the most predictable offense imaginable?

The offense is just used by Fox to rest the defense.. and sacrificed to give the defense good field position.

Go back and watch the game, Decker had six yards on the guy and Tebow became his usual indecisive self and failed to throw the ball. But it's probably because of Fox, right?

The problem with your argument is that he looks most "like crap" on passing plays. And by crap I mean almost lost. He struggles with pocket awareness, struggles with reads, has a terrible throwing motion, and it's a crap shoot whether or not he can deliver the ball where it's supposed to go and when it's supposed to get there. Kid's great in the running game but he doesn't have NFL level passing ability. He just doesn't. And if you can't see that then I don't know what to tell you.

Ok, the gameplan to stop tt is keep him in the pocket with a contain rush and it will remain so, until he/coaches beat it. How do we beat it? Screens, move the pocket, rollout, what? Timmy has shown he can beat just about every other D thrown his way. Beat this one and the skys the limit. Don't and his career is bleak!

You just quoted a bleacher report blog. So essentially you just posted a story written by MacGruder, Broncbow, or MileHighMojoe (on myspace)

I agree. Watch the game and see the other 15 routes where Decker was getting no separation at all. Its probably because of Tebow, right?

Do you have access to all 22 film? Do you somehow have a special channel that only follows Decker? It'd be really interesting to know how you watched every one of Decker's routes.
