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.

4 days ago the Jets were in 1st place at 5-3.  if he beat them last sunday as opposed to yesterday, would he be beating a team that "sucked"

GB has played hardly any teams with winning records and those decent teams at home. They're benefiting from a patsy schedule and a WEAK NFL league.

@Chris2003:   Not sure which games you've been watching but for at least the first several games Tebow played in the defensive players looked like they were intending to cause permanent injury.  That seems to have died down a little bit in recent weeks but then again the number of sacks against him have been rather minimal these past few weeks as well.  Either way, claiming NFL players play him soft is extremely naive and possibly idiotic.

If they draft a quality speedy running back. he option will continue to work.  Lance Ball isn't the answer.  Notice when Mcgahee was healthy, the option was going off.

I would say Quinn and Orton could be 4-1 too with the way the defense has been playing.
Yes, but the question is *WOULD* the defense be playing the way they are playing if it had been either of those two players starting?


And my memory may be a little fuzzy here but I seem to remember Roethlisberger not exactly looking ideal (and frequently not like a stereotypical qb) in his first season which, while he admittedly did not win the super bowl (or get there), he did seem to grow a lot into the position.  While I suspect you're right and they'll end up with a new rookie QB on their roster next year...  If Tebow manages to grow and improve in the role however unlikely it may be I would find it hard to bench him unless the new kid was lights out from the start (which outside of this year has generally been proven not to be the case...).

Green Bay has won 15 straight...Your argument is moot.  Apparently, virtually, nobody beats Green Bay.

Tebow as a very big hart and he work a lot but that not sufficent in the Nfl . you've got to have talent wich he doesn't have enough of to keep it up.

This is a bit of a humiliation to other players in the nfl of got the talent and do nothing. The defensive player play him soft like if they were playing a kid. Tebow should not be there and to all u players who tolerate him   he his humiliating u....Wake up players stop looking at him from your pedestal and play him hard and tough and you'll see he wont be there for long

Revis is the new Dieon Sanders, good in coverage, unwilling to tackle.  Whats the matter Darrel, Tebow look a little too big to put a lick on?

What an amazing finish last night.  I jumped off the couch when Tebow ran for the winning TD.  What an amazing leader willing his team to victory!  And, of course, give some credit to the Denver defense!!

What I thought was equally interesting, and refreshing, was watching the postgame when Tebow joined Desmond Howard, Michael Irvin, and Deion Sanders.  You could see how impressed they were with Tebow and his ability to continually find ways to win.  It was a really nice departure from mediocre ex-pros bashing Tebow to seeing Hall of Famers showing him love and respect.  They understand that all that matters in this league is winning, and you cannot argue with 4-1!  GO Timmy!

Go PACK!
