While we continue to discuss the passing abilities of Tim Tebow -- and whether Denver can continue to win with him or whether Tebow is so awesome that it doesn’t matter how poorly he passes -- we have some bad news for Broncos fans tonight.

No. 1: it’ll be cold and windy tonight with temperatures expected to dip into the mid-40s with 10 mph winds. So, it’ll probably be uncomfortable unless you have a heavy coat and, maybe, a nice cashmere sweater. No. 2: Tebow’s passing accuracy probably won’t be helped by the blustery conditions.

So, that’s not good, unless you remember what happened last week when Tebow completed all of two passes and the Broncos still managed to upend the Chiefs. Adding further to the good news, it sounds like running back Willis McGahee, injured last week along with Knowshon Moreno, will play tonight vs. the Jets.

Blustery conditions won't help Broncos attack

I'm with the other commenters here; blustery conditions only help the Broncos.  The likelihood of them "opening up" the offense against the Jets is nil, so the wind doesn't matter.

Other than that, the Broncos' QB has no passing skills.  Nor is he "awesome".

The wind here isn't that bad, no worse than what the Jets have dealed with in the old Meadowlands stadium. It might hurt both teams trying to go deep but the weather should be a non-factor otherwise.

You have to be kidding.  Blustery conditions favor the Broncos because it'll help nullify the Jets' passing game.  BOTH teams will be forced to rely on the run and the Broncos are better suited for it.  It's like God helping Tebow out.
