BallHyped asked me a few questions about Tim Tebow and the Broncos run, what Denver has to do to keep their post season alive, and whether Josh McDaniels’ presence with the Pats will be a factor in the game.
BH: There are so many storylines heading into this weekend’s game, it’s tough to know where to start. But why not start with the man of the hour, Tim Tebow. Some of us saw this coming, but did you or anyone in Denver expect this kind of run out of the Broncos when Tebow took over under center?KC: Tim who? Kidding. I think many people believed that the Broncos would win some games with Tebow under center, but no one predicted that he would string six in a row together in the fashion that he did, nor get the Broncos past the first round of the playoffs. I mean, to go 4-0 in overtime is extremely special.
Tebow is improving from week to week, and during that time span between his third consecutive loss to end the regular season and prior to the Pittsburgh game, he walked around with a little bit of an edge to him. It was good to see the chip on his shoulder. It gave him some confidence to ‘pull the trigger’ as John Elway put it. That’s why he had the best performance of his career on Sunday.
That’s the great thing about sports. It gives us the chance to watch somebody surpass expectations and achieve things we never thought possible, and Tebow has certainly surpassed expectations. – BallHyped
