The biggest story of this NFL season has been the play of Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. In Tebow's seven starts this season, the Broncos are 6-1 and are currently tied for first place with the Oakland Raiders at 7-5.
Coming out of college, Tebow was seen as not much of a quarterback prospect but more of an h-back/tight end. The Broncos stunned many by drafting Tebow in the first round of the 2010 draft. After poor play by starting quarterback Kyle Orton, Tebow made his starting debut against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7.
With Tebow's unconventional abilities, head coach John Fox has utilized Tebow's strengths and implemented an option style offense. For years, it was believed that an option offense would not work in the NFL due to the incredible speed and athleticism that defensive players possess. Tebow is very balanced in his rushing/passing attempts, averaging nearly 10 rushes and 10 passes per game.
One big reason for the Broncos' success of late, has been Tebow's ability to reduce turnovers, having thrown for just one interception and losing only two fumbles.
In order for the Bears to contain Tim Tebow, they have to be disciplined and maintain their gaps. Up and down the board, each position will need to do its job. If the defensive linemen can get pressure on Tebow and force him out of the pocket, it is up to the linebackers to finish.
The Bears have faced running quarterbacks such as Michael Vick this season as well as a lesser known runner, but just as capable, Aaron Rodgers.
Plain and simple, in order to stop this Denver offense, they need to stop Tim Tebow.
