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.

Give it up haters.

Its almost as if you want to start calling TT the "Christian" Quarterback as if it a negative thing.

Ok Steeler fan, we are replacing Ben Rothlisberger the Pittsburgh Quarterback with the "Alleged Rapist Quarterback Ben Rothlisberger" or how about "Pittsburgh...we love our Alleged Rapists as long as they win on Sunday!"

The real winner here is the 8 year old boy in Florida that is dying of cancer. No longer able to take the chemo and his condition can not be aided by surgury. He roots for Tebow and awaits his fate. Tebow called him last month and hopes to meet with him as soon as he can. The young boy will not see next season, but awaits a possible visit. He was the real winner, he knows his fate, his wish is that his mother will not be so sad. That is a Tebow fan, mock him.

We can only hope that if Tebow were to "tithe" give 10% as under the old law, that he reads Leviticus 27:31 and adds a fifth there to make it 12%. That way he would still be fulifilling the old law and being generous, which I am sure that he is to whatever organizations that he so chooses.

Go Tebow!! And for all you haters you have to admit Tebow is about the only one that gets down on 1 knee and give thanks to the One  that made him. You don't hear him go on and on about himself like other QBs. You don't see him yeal at the other players because they missed the ball He know that they are all human. I hope and pray that he goes to against New England and shows Tom Brady how to be a respected football player. So proud of you Tebow keep up the good work!!!

Why not give him credit for the 2007 national championship? Besides the fact that he was on the team, contributed throughout the season, oh and he threw for a TD as well as ran for one in the championship, what other requirements would you expect of him as a freshman playing behind a solid senior QB in Chris Leak?
