Yeah, Tebow played good against the Steelers and the D was bad....but the same D was the reason why TT had some 4th quarter comebacks. The D was THE part of this team which kept the team in the games whereas the offense, including TT, could not take advantage of that til the last quarter...even a blind squirrel will find a nut.
Denver went 6-25 over Orton's last 31 starts, then 8-5 with Tebow. We're supposed to believe this was just a coincidence? I know correlation doesn't equal causation, but it's pretty obvious what happened. Also, Denver's D was awful in the playoffs, blowing a big late lead to a one-legged Roethlisberger. Tebow carried them to their only post-Elway playoff victory.
That's true but a lot of those games were against teams with good defense and bad offense (Miami, Chicago sans Cutler, KC, NYJ). Except for the SD game, when Denver's D faced a good offense they got creamed. Tebow's ball-control offense also helped give the D more rest.
