How do you even describe watching a quarterback go to an empty backfield and just run the ball all over a defense for a 95-yard drive to win the game? Inconceivable! Tebow’s drive was the most run-heavy for a quarterback for any fourth quarter game-tying or go-ahead drive we’ve seen in the last 30 years…Comparisons to John Elway are always going to be there as long as Tebow is in Denver, and this drive features many…Elway was known to use his legs, but he usually used them to escape and throw the ball. Despite 49 fourth quarter wins, Elway never had a drive where he used his feet the way Tebow did.
