This week, it was the reeling New York Jets who fell victim to Tebow's ability to thrive in the clutch, as the former Florida Gator found a way to to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat, driving the length of the field, capped off by a stunning 20-yard touchdown run.
Tebow was mobbed by his teammates, and after the game the quarterback was the talk of the game, but in his normal fashion, he deflected the praise to his teammates who helped make the plays that needed to be made to keep Denver in the game in the first place. It's never pretty, but somehow, some way, the Broncos keep winning, and you can see his teammates rally around him with each stunning victory.
The fans love him, and it's hard not to when you see a man so humble. Sure, the hype around him borders on hysteria at times, but he is the type of player that makes you want to root for a team and when he wins, it's the complete opposite of the stereotypical athlete, who has been programmed to focus on the individual first and the team second.
Tebow is what most people want athletes to be. Even if he's not going to be the next Joe Montana, he has something special that doesn't show up on the stat sheet and there's something to be said for that, even if it will never set passing records.
Right now, the Broncos are winning and Tebow is a big reason for it. That's all that matters.
