Patriots Stop Tim Tebow: Why He Will Be Missed
Denver’s defense lost this game, but Tebow was still pretty terrible: he completed just 9 of 26 passes, for 136 yards. (John 1:36 – “When he saw Jesus passing by, he said, ‘Look, the Lamb of God!’”) One 3rd-and-19 pass late in the third quarter was so wobbly and off the mark that Denver chose to kick a field goal rather than go for it on fourth down, trailing 42-7. The message was clear: Denver coach John Fox had no faith that Tebow could convert.
After the game, Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey was asked if Tebow should be the starter next season. Bailey looked the other way, providing no answer.
Champ has hedged his QB bet several times this year. First he was in the Orton camp. Then he switched to Tebow's. After the KC loss, he was neutral. With the win against Pittsburgh, it was safe to leave the house again.
Now, mum's the word. Can't say I blame him. It's best to declare after the fact so you're on the right side of history.
Tom Kensler had a different version of events, though.
