Rex Grossman was 13-3 as a the Starting QB for the 2006 Chicago Bears.
Wins. The only thing a sports franchise cares about when it comes to its success. It is wins that make a franchise successful after all. So below are the eight games Tim Tebow has started in along with the current records of the teams Denver has played as of Week 14.
Week 7 Denver won 18-15 (OT) vs. Miami Dolphins (4-9).
Week 8 Denver lost 45-10 vs. Detroit Lions (8-5).
Week 9 Denver won 38-24 vs. Oakland Raiders (7-6).
Week 10 Denver won 17-10 vs. Kansas City Chiefs (5-8).
Week 11 Denver won 17-13 vs. New York Jets (8-5).
Week 12 Denver won 16-13 (OT) vs. San Diego Chargers (6-7).
Week 13 Denver Won 35-32 vs. Minnesota Vikings (2-11).
Week 14 Denver Won 13-10 (OT) vs. Chicago Bears(7-6).
Fact—Tebow has a 7-1 record.
Fact—the majority of Tebow's wins have come against teams with losing records. Four. Those being Miami, Minnesota, San Diego, and Kansas City.
The three winning teams he beat include-
New York Jets (8-5)
Likely, will make the playoffs. This win over the Jets marked a quality win for Tebow and the Broncos.
Oakland Raiders (7-6)
Looking like a team that by season's end will be (7-9), Oakland has struggled as of late. They lost to the Broncos only two weeks after trading for Carson Palmer after their starting quarterback Jason Campbell was lost due to injury.
Chicago Bears (7-6)
After being (7-3) life was good in Chicago. Then, they lost Jay Cutler and Matt Forte to injury and now this team is anemic on offense and has lost three straight and looks as if they will be at home come this postseason.
The one loss with Tebow as a starter came against the
Detroit Lions (8-5).
Detroit is a solid team. With a solid defense, the Lions are looking like a team that will be playing in the playoffs.
The reason I show you this list is to breakdown the eight games Tim Tebow has started. He's 7-1. But you can make the case that the majority of his wins are against lackluster teams.
Is that Tebow's fault. No way.
However a 7-1 can be very misleading.
Look back to 2006.
There was a starting quarterback who was 13-3 as a starter and led his team to a Super Bowl berth.
That quarterback was Rex Grossman of the 2006 Chicago Bears.
While Tim Tebow has played well up to this point. Simply a 7-1 record is very misleading. Especially with the teams the Denver Broncos have played.
While Denver can't help the teams they play, they have had close calls with BAD teams such as Miami, Minnesota, Kansas City, and San Diego.
San Diego may look okay now. But when they played Denver they were in the midst of a terrible six-game losing streak.
With this being said, Tebow maybe 7-1, but its a very lucky 7-1.
