Sometimes something so ugly can turn into something so magnificent when it’s all said and done. That’s what can be said of the Denver Broncos 18-15 win over the Miami Dolphins. That’s what can be said of the man of the hour, Tim Tebow, and his performance
Before Tebow went on a tear against his hometown team, he went 4-of-14 for 40 yards and took 5 sacks. At halftime, he was 3-of-5 for 24 yards.
“A few of them, I was probably being a little too safe and cautious and throwing the ball away quite a few times,” Tebow said.
Through three quarters, Tebow threw the ball just 8 times. Had he been 8-0f-8, John Fox said that he would have had Tebow throw more. Instead, Tebow was 3-of-8 and his offense had not scored a point until there was 2:44 left in the game.
“That’s my fault that we were in that position in the first place,” Tebow said of being down by 15 late in the game. “I’ve just got to play better in the first three quarters, so we don’t have to make that comeback in the fourth.”
The comeback miraculously happened thanks to Tebow’s arm and legs, big stops and a takeaway on defense, and excellent play by special teams.
Just like it takes a village to raise a child, it takes steady play from teammates to raise a young quarterback.
“Tim’s a young player that’s just going to get better, and I saw him get better today,” Fox said.
