ESPN's Skip Bayless was at the forefront of  Tebowmania back in 2011. Tim Tebow had led many game-winning drives—including one in the playoffs—while playing quarterback for the Denver Broncos that season.

After Luck led a miraculous 28-point comeback against the Kansas City Chiefs in Saturday's Wild Card, it's safe to say that the second-year quarterback has the "It Factor" Bayless was looking for.
