Tebow Time turned into Brady’s Bit Saturday night when the New England Patriots jumped out to a 28-7 lead over the Denver Broncos with two minutes to go in the first half.
It was clear who the experienced fighter was in this bout. In Tim Tebow’s second career playoff game, he went 9-for-26 for 136 yards. He rushed for just 13 yards on 5 carries and fumbled the ball once.
“They had a great scheme,” Tebow said. “They came out and they played well and they executed well. You’ve got to give them a lot of credit.”
That’s typical Tebow talk.
No athlete had as much camera time as Tim Tebow has had this week. Whether it’s highlights of his season, banter among ESPN/NFL analysts, or the public coming up with jingles, jigs, and artwork dedicated to No. 15, the time had to come for the Tebow train to jump the track.
“I was really proud where he started and where he brought this team,” John Fox said of his quarterback. “We are a work in progress. We have a lot of work to do and that hasn’t changed, you know, for some time.”
While people may think the Broncos aren’t punching the time clock for the next 8 months, think again. No one will be working as hard as Tebow.
Now that we don’t have the lockout hindering player development, Tebow is going to benefit greatly from the off season. John Elway has said that he’s going to step out on the practice field with Tebow.
So what are Tebow’s off season plans?
“In some way, shape, or form, work pretty hard and try to get a lot better,” Tebow said. “Just work and improve, fundamentals, understanding defenses, footwork, everything.”
The real work begins now, after a little R&R of course.
