Tim Tebow: Has This Season Proved He's a Legitimate NFL QB?
Last night Denver Broncos fans were disappointed.
Not only did they get crushed by the San Diego Chargers, but fan favorite Tim Tebow didn't play.
And that was despite two trips to the red zone, and a three-touchdown deficit for most of the second half.
Tebow has been successful in his limited time, and it's starting to become peculiar that they don't give him more mop up duties, but all of that could be about to change.
Why Tebow Has Proved His Legitimacy
Tebow has shown something this year, he knows how to score. Actually, within the 10-yard line, Tebow may already be one of the NFL’s best quarterbacks.
Tebow has successfully finished four drives now for the Broncos, and ask any quarterback, it's finding the end zone that is the hardest part of any drive. So he has the hardest part down, and he finally threw a pass.
It's as good as a start for Tebow as anyone could have hoped for, well without being greedy anyway.
Josh McDaniels' handling of Tebow has been superb. Having game time experience will help Tebow be more prepared, mentally and physically, when the time comes for him to play substantial minutes for the Broncos.

The reason Tebow isn't proven quite yet is simplistic; he hasn't played enough.
He's a backup quarterback, who has seen limited playing time, and has yet to make an NFL start.
There have been a lot of positives thus far for Tebow, but obviously there is still a lot to be learned about whether he can be a strong passer in the NFL.
I mean it's only been one pass, can we really say how good he will or won't be off of it?
The good news for Tebow fans is that the Broncos have sunk to the bottom of the AFC West, which can only mean more playing time for Tebow.
Josh McDaniels needs a moral victory after he has practically decimated the Broncos. The success of Tebow could be the basis for how long he will have a job in Denver.
