Tim Tebow should have won the Heisman this year. He is the best college football player in the NFL, and I mean that as a compliment. He just plays old school smashmouth football. His passing stats don’t match that of the prototypical NFL quarterback, but somehow he puts drives together when it counts. It’s really quite inexplicable except that the guy has a voracious will to win that spreads to every player on his team.
The win last week over the Chicago Bears was a fourth quarter comeback for the ages. The video above shows the whole thing up close from Tebow’s perspective. You’ll see the old school football I’m talking about. You’ll also hear some old school worship songs from Tebow’s lips. “Our God Is an Awesome God” and “Lord, I Lift Your Name on High” have to be at least 25 years old or more. Tebow is still singing them nevertheless!
I think the Broncos will have a tough time against the Patriots on Sunday. Realistically, I think that this is where the Bronco’s improbable winning streak will end. Tom Brady is likely to put 20 to 30 points on the board, and that kind of scoring will be difficult for the Broncos to keep up with. I say that hoping that Tebow might read what I’m writing. I think it will make him all the more determined to prove me wrong. I hope that he does!
