Default This is awesome.

Don't know if this was posted elsewhere, but this brought a tear to my eye. I'm thrilled to have Manning, but thanks for the memories Tebow.

My friends (who were not Bronco fans) and I went absolutely berserk when this play happen. Absolutely insane. It was sublime. I'll never forget it. Again, thank you Tebow. I'll be rooting for you in NY, though I think Elway did the right thing by persuing/signing Manning.

Well, I get Tony's point. He got **** for suggesting that Elway didn't believe in Tebow and was going to do everything he could to replace him. Let's face it, he was right. That said, what Denver fan can't appreciate the season Tebow gave us, even if you don't buy that it was sustainable?

I'm looking forward to this season, and reacquainting myself with the poor Steeler fans on East Carson St, Pittsburgh, whose souls I CRUSHED that night!

Always give thanks to Tebow, for he will lift you up, even if most of his passes are down and dirty.

No matter how you feel about the players involved, it was one of the best moments in Broncos history... at least in my 30+ years watching.

Awesome. Easily the top Broncos moment for me since the Super Bowls.

Great video.

I couldn't agree more. It marks the end of an era in Broncos football that saw three of our players die, a horribly divisive and paranoid coach, and the worst record in team history. It was such a release of pent up frustration that it still gives me goosebumps to watch.

Yep. For me, it's only second to "this one's for John"/the helicopter.

Watching Tebow hug John at the end is a little weird.

I remember seeing that here a week after the game. Best thing about that video is no rap music! I do feel for all those that bought the Tebow jersey and now he is no longer on the team. I don't think you need to put it in the drawer for years. No shame on wearing it still but why I don't buy current players.

This is why sports are great. Even if we didn't win the bowl, Tebow gave you something to root for.

Tebow made the Broncos relevant and that was nice.

Telling the ****tsburgh faithful to get their **** and get the **** out of Denver was priceless.

What an amazing video, the end was definitely true Football is awesome.

I love all the reactions mine were similar jumping up in down screaming hitting the floor its great man. Winning is awesome.

I had the same reactions when Stokely caught that pass, or when we ran elam on to the field in that one game to kick the game winner vs the bills?

Lots of last minute electric wins happened in Broncos history.

Hopefully Manning can get us a Superbowl being 25 years old now I was too young to really know what it meant for my team to win when the Broncos won those back to back Superbowls I was excited but at the same time no where near as excited as my Dad was I couldn't really appreciate it as much.

Hope I can experience it soon.

It wasn't all just Tebow though it was the Broncos. This video really shows how passionate fans of football are.

Yes and it is perfectly rational and understandable to have taken as much enjoyment and excitment as we all did from a special season while also realizing it was very likely a one of a kind fantasy deal that comes around every so often when the stars align.

It was fun and it was revealing too. Both in a good way about leadership and inspiration and its power to help elevate a team and a QB beyond their limitations .. if only for a while. and revealing too of the major limitations Tim still has as a long term NFL caliber QB in this league. Maybe he can make it in time, but it is a real crap shoot it that will ever come to be.

Going back and watching every game again as I did after the initial surge of emotion and joy had calmed down, was instructive too in seeing What really went on.

Tim deserves a lot of credit for his will to win and effort every play and for some really outstanding individual plays. But he nearly single-handedly also put the team in dire straights nearly every game that forced and required such last minute heroics just too pull a rabbit from the hat each week, and that is no way to survive year in and year out in this league without a doubt!

If anything, Tim's reading of the opposing defenses, his decision making too, got worse after teams figured out how to box him in more and he regressed those last weeks for the most part.

In any event, when Manning became a real possibility for us it was definitely time to move on from the Tebow experiment. So much of that was from the surprise and confusion our college running game offense posed for NFL Ds for almost 7 weeks before they started figuring it out.

We got very lucky too in several games including meeting the Steeler's with a hobbled Rothlesberger and their hobbled defense and still it took a miracle play in over time to win it.

The prior 4 games at the end of the season plus the final game in Boston brought home the cold hard facts of reality back to everyone's awareness .. at least those who have much of it to begin with.

Tim is a good kid and an inspiring figure but has major weaknesses as a NFL QB that may never really be rectified. I Hope he does improve and will root for him when the Jets aren't playing us, but while I suspect he might make a decent journeyman QB, he may well have had his one shining moment in teh NFL sun already as a full time starting QB at least.

At least Denver gave him that chance he always wanted and he got a life time of memories from that as well, even if he never starts another NFL game at QB.

There is no dicotomy or conflict at all between fully appreciating what Tim and the rest of the team managed to pull off last year, and recognizing now the golden opportunity of landing Payton freaking Manning for a few last years of prime time elite QBing for the Broncos!

Good work Elway/Fox and Bowlen! Best of luck Tebow in the NYC circus with the automatic QB controversy with Sanchez... you're likely going to need it ... I just hope the fanatic Tebow luddites don't screw up the whole show there and make people start to resent him.
