I'm in a state of Tebow-induced shock

Now, I'm not saying what Tebow is doing will last. I doubt it will. Eventually the NFL will catch up to this madness of an offense. But it is impossible not to appreciate, enjoy, be stunned, be amazed, at what he is doing.

You have to raise a toast to Tebow. You have to. Nothing like this has been done in the NFL since the Wildcat and this is even more impressive. That Jets defense Tebow was singlehandedly destroying is pretty good. Not great. But good. He was humiliating the Jets. Absolutely humiliating them.

The Jets should be ashamed of themselves but we have to give credit to Tebow.

I thought the Jets would crush Tebow. Finally, they'd expose him. Then he does that.

I'm in shock. The entire league is in shock right now.

But more than anything, the Tebow doubters, like me, have to take a step back.

And appreciate what we're seeing because this is remarkable stuff.

Tebow lead the Broncos to one good drive and it just happend to be the last one.  If the Jets actually had an offense (QB and an OC that knew what the hell they were doing and didn't suck) the last drive wouldn't have even mattered.


And if Tebow was a little more accurate the Jets would not event be in the game.

I agree with you JetsFan77...here are my thoughts on the game.

Tebow is 4-1 and had 1 good drive yesterday. That's as nice as I can talk about Tebow yesterday. The Broncos last 10 drives before the game winning drive were aweful! The 10 drives averaged 3.5 plays per drive. (Never capitalizing on great field position all night with the exception of the field goal after the worst punt i've seen all year put them automatically in field goal range.) 5 of those 10 drives started inside jets side of the field. Their average field position was their own 41 yard line. Those 10 drives accounted for only 70 yards of offense with 4 drives going 1 yard or less.

The Broncos defense should be the ones getting credit for the 4-1 record the last 5 games. They are getting it done on the line and in the secondary. I would say Quinn and Orton could be 4-1 too with the way the defense has been playing. I am ok with Tebow playing out the rest of the year but something has to be done for next year!

The only QB on the field last night that was a joke was Mark Sanchez!

He has skills, albeit not the usual ones. The biggest skills he has though aren't his arms or his legs, but are between the ears.

Hey estasi,

"out of the league in two years"  REALLY??  YOU THINK???  When some guy named Palko is starting this weekend.  And somehow Matt Leinert stays in the league for years??? 

Yes 11 completions in two games and oh wait, whats their record??  Oh 2-0!! Imagine that.  So they are 6-3 the last two years in games Tebow has played and 4-14 in games when he hasnt!!  Notice a pattern??

"Worst passer in the NFL".  Again REALLY??  The two worst passes BY FAR last night were from Sanchez.  Sanchez threw one more TD last night than Tebow did-- unfortunately it was to the WRONG TEAM!!! (in one of the worst passes I have seen all season).  And then he misses a WIDE OPEN Dustin Keller in the end zone (Way toooo high).  Why isnt anyone pointing this out?

The two most important stats in football, BY FAR, are WINS and TURNOVERS.  So how is the "worst QB in NFL history" doing here?  Oh he ALWAYS wins and he NEVER turns the ball over.  Hmmmm...yeah why would you want a guy like that leading your team?

See all you guys can build up guys like Dan Fouts, Dan Marino and Warren Moon, cause they put up all those pretty little numbers and they "look so good passing the ball".  Me, I'll take guys like Troy Aikman, Phil Simms and Jim McMahon, because you know what those guys do...they WIN!!!!

Tim Tebow should have gone to Oakland, because Al Davis would have loved this guy, "Just Win Baby".........All the talk in Sports is about the W's, well how is Tim doing now?  John Fox coming out and saying that Tebow couldn't run a normal NFL Offense, well, how was Orton doing with that Normal NFL Offense?  Football is Football, it can change, and evolve, perhaps from the Normal Pocket Passing Pro Style Offense, to the West Coast Offense, to the Wildcat, and now to the Teboffense......this young man, believing in himself, and God, has his Teamates on the Ceiling with his enthusiasm, and his desire to go beyond, and win at any cost....what an example.  The NFL doesn't have to be the same in every City, and the Offense doesn't have to be a standard model......what gave Vick success, not the average model....So, can we appreciate what Fox has given Tebow the ability to do?  Win, get the Team behind you and your efforts, and take the Broncos to the promiseland.  What a story, what a Kid, good for Tim Tebow, the NFL has something, and should appauld what he means to the League.....there are more mobile QB's coming, so get ready.....

Heck, better yet...   Look at Sanchez and the Jets or Grossman in Washington.

@Bonadrag75:   You neglect to consider the possibility that the Defense is playing up because they believe the kid gives them a chance to win if they put him in a position to do so.  The entire Denver team has played up to a higher level with Tebow at the helm.  If you looked at the rest of the team in the beginning of the season (defense and offense included) and you look at them now they don't really even resemble each other.  If you persecute the kid for causing the loss and for all the horror his play creates...  You have to praise him when they still manage to win.  Is it Tebow who won that game?  Not exactly.  But I do firmly believe the fact that Tebow is behind center that the rest of the team has stepped up and they've managed to win.  Plus in Tebow's very limited defense...  With only 1 interception in 125 attempts...  It would also seem to me that his shortcomings manage to not shoot the team in the foot.  Don't think that matters?  Look at San Diego.

There is no way Tebow keeps this up.  He cant pass to save his life.  Teams will catch up to the option like the Jets did for most of the game.  That one drive killed them but there is no way they can do it regularly.  I dont see the Broncos winning one more game this season.  Than Elway will look for a real QB in this years draft and find a way to utilize Tebow some other way or just let him go.
