Although Tebow and his Broncos have won games against less-than-impressive teams while flaunting a newly found defensive "powerhouse," his performance is mediocre compared to elite quarterbacks around the league.
Tebow's numbers look impressive when you look at his eight touchdown passes and lone interception, but a closer look at his performance should call for some worries in Denver.
After a look at the defenses he's already faced since his return, numbers like his 45 percent completion rating and 80.0 overall QB rating should worry fans.
Only twice has Tebow managed to surpass the 100-mark in QB rating with one coming in his infamous two-completion victory in Week 10 against the Chiefs.
Although Tebow has also managed to rush for three touchdowns and over 400 yards, Broncos' fans shouldn't get used to seeing him put his head down and run against the better defenses in the NFL if they expect him to play in the following weeks.
Not only do these superior defenses have the talents to slow a mobile quarterback, but they will put a hit on him that he won't forget any time soon.
With the exception of the New England Patriots and Chicago Bears in consecutive weeks, the remainder of the schedule doesn't look to get any rockier for Denver (pun intended).
If the Broncos stick with their style of play, the level of competition waiting in the playoffs and beyond will be a rude awakening.
Don't expect Tebow and the Broncos to pull off the miraculous season that some diehard fans are already looking forward to.
