Tim Tebow did a lot of things Sunday that no one expected (like throw for exactly 316 passing yards). One such thing: unlocking a $250,000 bonus in his contract for winning a playoff game.

A clause in Tebow's contract paying him that money was activated on Sunday night according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, when Tebow won a playoff game. For every playoff game that Tebow wins, provided he's taken 70 percent of his team's snaps in a season, he gets an additional $250,000.

We already knew that Tebow unlocked a $472,000 bonus for playing in more than 45 percent of his team's snaps back in December.

Closing out the season as the starter, Tebow passed the 70-percent threshold and now is owed an additional $250 GRR.

If the Broncos somehow manage to topple New England, Tebow will be in line for an additional bonus. (And the same is true up through the Super Bowl, giving Tebow the potential to earn an extra ... one million dollars.)

And you know what's almost as funny as Austin Powers jokes? Thinking back to before the season and imagining a world where Tebow not only played in 73 percent of the Broncos plays in 2011, but discussing the possibility of him making an extra quarter-million as a result of beating the Steelers in the playoffs.

Yet, somehow, here we are.

Totally awesome! The best thing about Tebow-win or lose this next game- is that he has proven all of the so-called experts and media wrong! I really don't care about his religious beliefs. i love when someone works their ass off and shows everyone that there are other ways to get the job done. All that matters at the end of the game is the W and this man, with the help of his team mates, gets it done in his own way. I love it!

People can hate Tebow as an NFL QB and still respect him as a man. You Tebow lovers are all the same, if we don't agree with you then we must have no soul or be ignorant. 

His team wins games, not just solely him.

"...15% of the value ..."  

Sorry, my bad.  That should read 12%.

We atleast know that of all the money Tebow makes some of it will go to helping some misfortunate soul. How anyone not down right nasty to the soul can hate Tebow blows my mind. He not only talks the the talk but walks the walk has well. You can hate the lazy media for throwing him into the spotlight non-stop but you can't hate Tebow for it. Blame the dirtiest 4 letter word in sports ESPN. They ripped him early. Then they jumped on the bandwagon then off again now back on. I'm not sure there is another network that is the ratings whore that ESPN is.

Tebow does good things for people and is a gifted football player, Brady knocks up models. Who is a better role model to you Tebow haters, Ben the bathroom boogie man or your neighbor hood coke dealer from the Bears? Bag it up haters you just show your ignorance.

Tim also here in Colorado met with a 15 year old girl who idolizes him and she has a rare disease and has had over 100 surgeries. Tim took her family introduced them to his and set them up in a box for Saturday's game. A friend of mine ran into him in a hospital where he was visiting sick kids and although my friend, an avid Bronco hater, said of Tim he was a really nice person and the real deal. Tim is worth every million he gets now, if we could get him a coach with more of a play arsenal than run on first, pass on third or when you need to we would have something great.

I'm telling you right now I HATE Tim Tebow (Teblow).  But that game was the most exciting game of the entire weekend.  It will be interesting to see if he can repeat this performance against the Patriots this weekend.  Not a big Brady fan, but dislike Belichek even more.  Tebow's agent was smart to put a clause into his contract like that. Icing on the cake for Tim that day for sure.

Let's go Broncos!

"... and adds a fifth" 
Say what?  That has to do with tithing from your crops, not from tithing your cash income.  Instead of 10% of your crop, you could opt to bring in 15% of the value of the crop in cash.  I always like to ask tithers if they are bringing to the church one tenth of their backyard tomatoes as the law required. I'm sure the church staff would enjoy eating the tomatoes.  LOL
