Broncos 29, Steelers 23 in OT

DENVER -- He's no longer a novelty, no longer a mystery, no longer a fluke. Tim Tebow is now a playoff-winning quarterback, and not because he managed this game.

He won it.

With Tebow tying two franchise records set by John Elway and throwing the winning touchdown pass in overtime, the Broncos defeated the Steelers 29-23 Sunday to advance to the next round of playoffs, next weekend at New England.

Tebow threw for 316 yards and ran for 50, and produced touchdowns each way. He joined Elway as the only Denver quarterbacks in the postseason to (1) complete two 50-yard passes and (2) throw and run for a touchdown, both in the same game.

Tebow needed just 10 completions to surpass the 300-yard mark, throwing rarely but gouging the Steelers for huge chunks of yardage when he did. That included his 80-yarder to Demaryius Thomas on the first play of overtime for the winning points.

Thomas finished with 204 yards on four catches.

Apparently reading comprehension is a strong suit for poster(posters) on these boards. Dosent(Doesn’t) saying anything about hoping God takes him out next week.

 What does “Dosent saying anything about hoping God takes him out next week” mean?  Maybe the reading comprehension is low, because your grammar is atrocious.

>>>He made the #1 defense look pathetic!!

The number 1 defense that was missing several key players. If they'd all been healthy, who knows.

Nevertheless, good for Tebow and the Broncos.

Mulatto - you are being judged by what you said, not by what you have done in the past. Anyone who wishes injury to another person, just because you don't like his fans or him is a scumbag. Joe Paterno was a great football coach and did a world of good for many people, but he will go down as a person who helped hide a pedophile that kept molesting young boys. Don't wish injury on someone and then say don't judge me.

Wishing that someone suffer a career-ending injury because you dislike them is going too far. It is fine that you dislike a player, that you may disagree with his style of play, his style of leadership, even his beliefs and what he stands for.  I find myself cheering for him. I always see Tim Tebow as kind of an underdog, a guy who consistently beats the odds, who defies the doubters. Whatever the case, he came through when it counted. It was Tebow who carried the team offensively today, even as the defense had another strong showing, by sacking Roethlesberger 5 times and making numerous big plays when it counted the most (especially at the end of the 4th quarter). Tebow is a gamer, he was a winner at Florida.  He has a quality that goes beyond mere physical skill. He makes those around him play at a higher level. He is the right choice to lead the Broncos right now. What he doesn't currently have in accuracy, he makes up for in grit. Early in his career Tom Brady was nowhere near the QB he ended up growing into. His accuracy was less then stellar, but he also had that special quality of leadership that inspired his team-members to step up their game--and then he grew from there.  I think that Tebow has the same type of potential for longevity if he continues to develop his skills. He has that special "it" factor already.

Mulatto, you're a jerk. It's not Tebow's fault, it's the media that has created all this hype.
I hope about 3 doz sportswriters who are Tebow Haters break their typing hands this week.
