5 Reasons Broncos' QB Tim Tebow Will Be an Epic Failure in 2012

Tim Tebow was the breakout star of the 2011-2012 NFL season. It didn't matter if you were a fan or an innocent bystander, Tebow was everywhere. In a season where records tumbled (most passing yards in a season: 5,476, Drew Brees, New Orleans, most passing yards in a rookie season: 4,051, Cam Newton, Carolina and most field goals in a season: 44, David Akers, San Francisco), the news cameras always seemed to be focused on Tebow.

The Broncos QB did set some records of his own: longest scoring play in a playoff overtime (80 yards), shortest time of a drive in regular and postseason overtime (11 seconds) and quickest ever win in overtime (11 seconds), but Tebow Fever was so much more than a few broken records. It gave us a new craze and had politicians wishing they were him. But they weren't. There is only one Tim Tebow.

After a season in which he grabbed so many national headlines and gained so much worldwide attention, how will he be able to follow it up?

Odds are he probably won't.
