Peek at the Week: If Tebow beats Pats, critics have less to crow about
So now it’s that he’s lucky or is carried by a defense that, oh, by the way, yielded close to 500 yards to a rookie quarterback two weeks ago…In any case, the more Tebow and the Broncos win, the more it infuriates critics who refuse to admit that maybe, just maybe, they might have been wrong. So they search for something, anything, not to give the guy credit, waiting for him to screw up and to declare themselves victors.
I know, Tebow isn’t doing this alone, but consider this the next time you shred the guy: He has one of the league’s worst sets of running backs and receivers around him, with Denver trading away Brandon Lloyd—its top pass catcher—soon after Tebow took over. OK, so Willis McGahee has been a load. He was also all but washed up when Baltimore let him walk. And tell me what you know about Tebow’s go-to receiver, Eric Decker. Someone? Anyone?
Never mind that the Broncos' best player was on the sideline in Minnesota. Yeah, the defense ain't any good either.
