I watched Mr. Tebow beat big bad Ben R. and the Steelers on 1/8/12.
I would like to see him do the same to Tommy Brady and his Pats.

Elway would too and I get the impression Elway deep deep down isn't yet convinced Tebow can be an ELITE qb in the NFL. So far Tebow has earned his money for the franchise. I wonder what Elway will think then if Tebow's play beats the Patriots.

We'll see...you know who I'm cheering for! But it really comes down to a team, and if one or the other can rattle the QB--that will win it....

...it really will be about the defense and NOT the QB ultimately. I'm not saying a great QB isn't the center of a team (all the elite teams are lead by elite QB's), but he needs a super TEAM effort!

But I'm not cheering for Tebow...he needs a bit of humbling--he's just a first year rookie with a lot of luck & raw talent (he may be elite someday for sure)...

GOD really isn't on HIS side...it may be petty, but I guess that annoys me most about Tebow.

Keep all that stuff at home, and just PLAY!

You know it is the media that has created the Tebow show.
He is humble and does not tout himself, but rather credits his teammates. I don't give a hoot what his religous feelings are.
Its unbelievable that the mania has hit over in England. They can't get enough of his jerseys.
I am really not a fan of his.
But Thomas Brady dissed the Jets regarding their end of season demise stating he enjoyed them losing and their self-destuction.
So screw him and I hope Tebow enbarasses him. He's the the one needing some humbling.

Sorry markk, but I enjoyed the Jets self destruction also....I'm sure the Jets would have gleefully said the same if Brady & the Pats had lost it in the end, if not worse--there have been some nasty words from either camp about the other team over the years...all in good cheer

...that is the kind of intense rivalry the two teams have. There is some bad blood between the two...so if you are the Jets fan I think you are, I forgive you, my friend....it's part of the game! But now I understand why you're rooting for Tebow, or any other team facing the Pats.

Tebow (maybe subliminally) influenced by LoVE??? If interested read on...

I have PA announced high school baseball games for the same school for a while now and in March 2005 Tebow's school had occaison to play us on our field (he played baseball briefly his junior year of high school). As in all baseball games I play music before the game and in between innings. Usually "baseball safe" music: Eagles, Petty, John Fogarty, etc...; boring but non-offensive stuff that you've heard a million times. However, sometimes when I'm feeling it I drop in some of my fav's which aren't mainstream, of which LoVE is one. I can't remember what was played that game, but just maybe if LoVE was somehow one of them, and Tebow heard it, and who knows... Maybe all the saviour/Jesus talk started when Arthur sublimally gave the message "Love on earth must be". You never know...

LK, you certainly read my post accurately.
But when the Red sox imploded, I did not enjoy it, it was just sad.
But I would enjoy a Tebow victory over Thomass Brady.

I was just being a "FAN"...I like the Jets' moxy....they have a bit further to go. I also have no hate for the Yankees....my friend is a fan & we root for the other team if ours doesn't make it.

I have a real affection for the Broncos due to Elway...my favorite comeback QB--did anyone have more fun with being behind at the end of a game?! If any QB singlehandedly won a Superbowl if was Elway with those leaps to the endzone...if his his team didn't step up, Elway would!

Still, Brady is an easy target and there are many more hated athletes to pick on. He is just so good, but not a bad guy. Everyone makes a gaffe or two at press conferences--Coach Ryan would be a prime example!.

...besides, the Jets have been a thorn and unknown factor for the Pats...so I can see why Brady was happy when the Jets lost....he didn't want to face a team that is always up for the PATS!!

I suspect that maybe Elway overruled John Fox's coaching of Tebow for the Steelers game. I think Fox micromanaged Tebow too long; it was necessary at the beginning of the season but quickly lost it's effectiveness. I would bet that Elway took Tebow aside and told him to just throw the damn ball, regardless of the consequences. We'll see if Timmy T can hold up Saturday night.

I think he will. He's a competitor. I don't know what the future holds for him but he has talent. Only thing is right now he's not a so-called "pocket passer". Well Fran up in Minnesota really wasn't one either and he did kind of good, eh??? This could be a story later on with the naysayers. Eludes me now who that kicker was, had a bad foot, but managed to keep booting those field goals!

Fred Cox was the straight on kicker for the Vikes in the glory days of the Purple People Eaters in the '70's, but the club footed kicker was Tom Dempsey of the LA Rams (he set the then record with the Saints, though). The Rams/Vikings rivalry of the 70's was a real good one, with the stakes usually high when they played. Along with Oakland/Pittsburgh those were my earliest pro football experiences.

Tark was one of the best QB scramblers ever. He got panned for it then, but he set the standard. I loved to watch him scramble & pass!

You knew you'd hear from me....best ever...well in this game ...OH YEEEAH!! Some day Tebow may be there, but for now, playing with the big boys was a little too much! With a healthy team, Brady IS unbeatable! Maybe it also points out how weak the Western Division really is.

Brady, Patriots bring Tebow back down to Earth

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. – To everybody who thought this neat thing the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow were doing was going to last, the New England Patriots and Tom Brady made an emphatic, yet rhetorical, statement:

Are you freaking kidding?

New England advanced to next weekend’s AFC championship game at home against the winner of Sunday’s game between the Houston Texans and Baltimore Ravens game with a 45-10 thrashing of Denver. The Patriots, as they have been wont to do over the years, played at a relentless pace for much of the game as Brady finished with an NFL playoff-record-tying six touchdown passes and a team record for passing yards (363) in a playoff game.



“This was Tom and what he does,” wide receiver Deion Branch said with a broad smile. “I wouldn’t say it was his best game. There have been some others like this, but this was right up there with all the good ones.”

While Brady wouldn’t bite on whether this game had become somewhat personal with all the attention placed on Tebow, he politely chided the media and public for focusing so much on one person. Throughout the week, front-page stories on newspapers and media sites around the country and relentless coverage on ESPN (the network did a full hour of coverage on Tebow at one point in the week) were dedicated to the game’s other signal caller.

Never mind that Tebow’s counterpart is one of the greatest to ever play the game.

“A lot of people focused on one player,” Brady said. “We were focused on the entire Denver team because we knew the challenge we were facing.”



Still, the gap in this game was a chasm defined by the art of the forward pass. How staggering was the difference between Tebow and Brady? Entering the fourth quarter with the score 42-10, Brady had more touchdown passes (six) than Tebow had completions (five).

It would be enough to say this game was a rollover, a superior team and quarterback putting away a lesser team and inexperienced passer. But that wasn’t all. What the Patriots did was reaffirm what today’s NFL is all about.

This is a passing league and, as of now, Tebow’s skills in that regard are at best primitive. Yeah, the young man had a nice first-round win against Pittsburgh when the Steelers played one of the most undisciplined defensive schemes you’ll see.

By contrast, New England’s defense was a blueprint for stopping Denver’s various option and triple-option plays. The Patriots, who came into this game with some of the worst defensive statistics in the league and got lit up by the Broncos in the first quarter a month ago, were impressively disciplined. Time and again, the defenders forced Tebow to commit on the run (the Broncos had 100 mostly empty rushing yards in the first half) and then harassed him when he had to throw (three for 10 for 28 yards in the first half).

If not for some meaningless yards in the fourth quarter, Tebow’s night would have been a complete embarrassment.

“We were truly prepared for what we saw and how to handle it,” said New England linebacker Rob Ninkovich, who had 1½ sacks. “We had problems with them the last time and we focused on making sure we fixed that.”

And Tebow got a full look at what a great passer looks like at the height of his powers. Brady, a three-time Super Bowl champion and perhaps the best quarterback of his generation, had to answer questions all week about a guy who hasn’t started a full season of games, let alone done anything of significance in this league.
Tim Tebow was sacked five times on Saturday night.


Not that Brady, who threw five touchdown passes in the first half, needed additional motivation. He and the Patriots had plenty coming in without the specter of Tebow. They came in game with a three-game postseason losing streak. Brady came in having thrown seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in his past four postseason games, leading to a ragged 72.7 rating.

Most of all, Brady came in knowing that between being 34 years old and having an often faulty offense, it was time to get things done.

“It’s all about winning,” Brady said. “You lose a few playoff games and it’s a very bitter way to end the season and it sits on your mind for quite a long time. For us to come out and play the way we did, have a very solid performance in the most important game of the year is very gratifying.”

The Patriots played to Brady’s strength by putting him in a no-huddle attack for the first three quarters. From there, Brady turned this into a clinic and New England reached the AFC title game for the sixth time in 11 years. The Patriots are one game from a fifth Super Bowl appearance in that time. Brady completed his first eight passes as they scored on their first two possessions.

After a couple of scoreless possessions, the Patriots scored three more touchdowns in the final 7:42 of the first half to put the game away. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was the biggest beneficiary of Brady’s record-setting evening, grabbing three touchdown catches to tie a postseason mark held by 17 other receivers. He is only the second tight end in that group, joining Oakland’s Dave Caspar.

Gronkowski finished with 10 catches for 145 yards. Brady completed 26 of 34 with one interception. And there was no longer any question who was the dominant figure on the field.

The curiosity show that is Tebow’s game faded under the wave of Brady’s greatness. All that remained was for Patriots fans to derisively chant, “Teee-bow, Teee-bow, Teee-bow.”


His rise to prominence, at least for this season, is over. The stage is left to quarterbacks who can really wing it, not one who gets by on a wing and a prayer.
