Tim Tebow proves he's the best awful QB in NFL history thanks to win over Jets (VIDEOS)

Post-TD Tebowing.
It's gotten to the point where it's funny, at least for Broncos fans. Denver's 17-13 win over the Jets will no doubt boost sales of those Tim Tebow Jesus jerseys, as well as more comparisons between The Chosen One and His Lord and Savior, and that's understandable. After all, JC's well known for raising the dead, and lately, Tebow has been doing the same thing every damn week. But unlike his Idol, Tebow was responsible for nearly killing the body in the first place.

Again last night, Tebow was at his most competent during the first series of the game -- he completed three passes! out of nine total! -- and the last, when he willed the Broncos to a winning score thanks to the power of his feet and his crazy nerve. But in between, the squad's offense was so jaw-droppingly inept that it physically hurt to witness; I had more fun watching Melancholia.

Example: As noted on KOA radio this morning, the Broncos managed just 75 yards during the ten possessions prior to the last one, in which they racked up 95 -- with Tebow gaining the majority of it, including the last twenty for a score.

Of course, that last five minutes made up for the gruesome display that preceded it. Who, other than Jets die-hards, didn't crack up at the sight of New York coach Rex Ryan looking as dazed by Tebow's score as if someone had clubbed him in the head with a two-by-four?

Meanwhile, the Broncos defense again came up big. True, Mark Sanchez has been in a slump lately, and the Denver offense's incompetence seemed to lull him to sleep. But as in the three Denver victories (over Miami, Oakland and Kansas City) that preceded the contest, the D demonstrated a bracing toughness exemplified by super-rookie Von Miller, who is looking like a freaking draft steal at this point. And that pick six by Andre Goodman didn't hurt matters, either.

Still, much of the fun for NFL Network viewers in this time zone came after the final whistle blew. First, Tebow walked away from reporters and correspondents to join a giant prayer circle that included players from both teams. Next, he kept the net's gaggle of commentators waiting while he casually strolled around the field, signing autographs. And when he finally sat down with Rich Eisen, Marshall Faulk, Michael Irvin, Steve Mariucci and Deion Sanders, he found himself barraged by questions along the lines of...

Bronco fans need to ask themselves what they are being manipulated into “believing” in.

Tebow is a Christian Supremacist, propped up by moneyed fundamentalist Christian rightwingers. The idea is to inject religion into every conceivable area of public life in order to undermine secular democratic systems, including sports and entertainment (their own description, not mine).

It amazes me that people aren't catching on to the fact that they're being played by religious lunatics behind the scenes. The NFL and the Broncos will live to regret it.

Some people may think it's funny, but it ceased being funny a long time ago. Turns out there is method to the madness. This is simply another example of it (much like the religious fiasco recently on display at NASCAR).

There's a difference between being a terrible passer and a terrible quarterback but nobody seems to make that connection.  If a guy passes for a couple hundred yards each game and losses games he's still a great QB.  But a guy who only runs and wins is terrible.  Brilliant.  I guarantee you Teboe can shape up his passing in the next season or two if not this one (he's a rookie right...plenty of time).  A guys probably not gonna learn personality, charisma and leadership.  Keep on hatin' haters!  He'll still be a nerd and you can hate that if you want but let's show some support bi$%^es!

Wow, that's a great post, accurate take, and excellent description of the con that's being run here.

Bible capitalism began way back, as Tom Landry used to rake in big cash hawking for Billy Graham.

Kurt Warner's wife participates Joyce Myers' travelling carival acts as well.........and she ain't doin' it for nothin", pal! Piety, faked or real, is big bucks, and young Timmy's at the tip of the spear.

Tebows a good qb... Broncos just need better ball handlers. I saw 5 passes that were dead on but not caught.... Yeah lets blame tebow for his teammates not catching the damn ball.

I too was disappointed with the post game interview. The thugs turned TV pinups Deon Sanders and Michael Irvin, the kiss ass Mariucci, and the nose in air, snooty Eisen asked questions that not even a first year journalism student would have ventured.

Questions like "Why are you so polarizing?" aren't worthy of precious TV time, but these idiots Irvin and Sanders are too dumb and so self involved to even know it.

And yeah, he handled them like a pro.

I'm anything but a Tebow fan, never will be, but he's impressive. The moment's never too big for him, whether during or after the game. His "Not everybody's gonna like ya" comment was priceless and timed to blow up in Sanders' face.

Good for Tebow.    Full disclosure here, I'm saying for the record that this success won't last through a game against a prolific offense, and the defense cannot hold the score down while the offense is inept indefinitely, but the fact is, this kid is 4-1.

Flummoxed is a great way to describe not just the stooges on the NFL Network, but myself as well. I saw it, have no idea what I watched, but this kid took his team 95 yards when it counted (Thank you Eddie Royal, you saved the game on that first play) and was money when it counted. 

I don't think this kid can play quarterback in this league in a sustainable, game in and game out schedule. Next year Denver will and should have a real quarterback calling signals. He's 1968's Marlin Briscoe, surprising everybody once, but the old "Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me" holds court in that league. Second time seeing him will be a different result..

But this run since he's taken over cannot be described as anything less than breathtaking, and the people whose opinions really count..............his locker room...............seem all in.

Enjoy the ride, however long.

Just what exactly makes those guys "thugs" besides the color of their skin.  I'm curious.

Fair question, no problem answering it.

For years, Sanders was the ultimate "bad guy", the "gangsta", the disrespectful punk that cursed sports writers, that dumped a tub of ice water on former MLB great turned writer Tim McCarver..............because McCarver hurt his feelings in a criticism of Sanders' lazy play in a game........from behind McCarver no less. When McCarver cornered him, Sanders hightailed it, away from a man 26 years his senior, cursing him as he fled.

Irvin always mocked the press, acted the fool, flaunting his fame, money, and less than gentelmanly notoriety,. ..........until the opportunity on NFL Network.

As a person that watched these two as players, and now see a very hypocritical turn from both of them, I know what I'm seeing.

Race or skin color has nothing to do with it. Irvin and Sanders are thugs.

Still curious?

Denver fans and people living in Denver like Tebow for his character, his will, mind over matter, his leadership, desire to win, and his not being selfish.  I used to not like Tebow at florida for the same reasons as everyone else, he is to perfect! But now he has made me a believer and makes more believers in the city everyday.  He will be the one to bring the next rise of the broncos dynasty!

You just don't get it do you?  There's a deeper message that Tim Tebow is intentionally imparting here.  FAITH.  No matter the situation, Lord Tebow and his apostles will deliver us from 55 minutes of bad passes, stupid calls and continuous 3 and outs.    But I seriously ask any true believer:  did you really feel as if he'd let us down last night?  Not me.  No matter how bad it looks, no matter how impossible it seems, keep faith in Lord Tebow.

How can the second pick of entire the draft be a steal? Not second round... SECOND PICK.
