Last week against the Miami Dolphins, Tim Tebow looked terrible for 55 minutes but came back to perform like one of the league's best quarterbacks in the final five minutes to lead the Denver Broncos to an improbable comeback victory.
This week, Tebow looked terrible the entire game. His final numbers don't really do it justice: 18-of-39 for 172 yards, one touchdown and one interception. The Broncos lost 45-10 to the Lions in embarrassing fashion. (And a Lions linebacker went Tebowing.)
So...the Tim Tebow experiment? Broncos coach John Fox sounds like he isn't so sure about it right now. Fox wouldn't commit to his starting quarterback next week which means the Tebow era may be over almost as quickly as it started.
"We just wanted to make him be a quarterback," said Houston, who revealed the defensive game plan was based on the Lions' steadfast belief that Tebow was incapable of moving the Broncos to a score by completing six consecutive passes in any drive. "We had somebody take away his legs and made him use his arm."
Those five minutes of wonder against Miami now look like an aberration. Right here, right now, Tebow is the worst quarterback in the NFL.
So, once again, we're on Tebow watch.
