Tim Tebow and Denver Broncos: 3 Pre-Game Hype Songs Against the Patriots
In playoff action, though, we need more than '80s remakes or comedic crooners to fire flames of Bronco fan passion.
We need a musical slideshow. Well, maybe we need a musical slideshow like we need another pandering GOP reference to Tebow.
But you get a musical slideshow here, and one that has been carefully parsed for the most relevant Bronco pre-game themes for playoff action.
Turn it up and progress to the first slide, where I will bring the game-hype noise.
Calling All Bronco Heroes
The Broncos have had a disparate group of heroes emerge at key moments this season: from improbable Eddie Royal punt returns, to an Andre Goodman pick-six, to Demaryius Thomas combos of catch-stiff-arm-run-till-you-score thrillers, you never know who is going to turn a game in a Bronco-winning direction.
We need a hero to step up big against the Pats, and unsung ones are welcome.
The Broncos Feel Blessed, So Get Your Praise On
Coach John Fox has been thanking the "good Lord" all season long, and it is clear that part of the groundswell of Bronco belief is wrapped up with feeling blessed: they now have a wildly unexpected playoff shot beyond the first round, an opportunity that some have called "miraculous."
You don't have to be religious to be grateful that we get to cheer on at least one more Broncos game for 2012 and Grits' "My Life Be Like Ooh Ahh" could get you in a thankful mood.
Tebow Needs the Eye of the Tiger
Tebow gets giddy when he reminisces about how much Rocky movies inspired him as a kid. It was the training montages, in particular, that stirred his young Tebow fire.
Against the Pats, he will need to have precise vision to read the much more complicated looks the Patriots defense is likely to offer, especially compared to the straightforward "Let's just see if you can pass" coverage the Steelers showed.
Read that defense, Tebow, and keep all Broncos' eyes on the prize: one more win in the playoffs!
