Tim Tebow and the Broncos are on one of the more improbable runs in the NFL in recent memory, and have drawn a bead the AFC West title and the resultant berth in the 2011 NFL playoffs that goes with it.
But ask Tebow about his late-game heroics, which have included five fourth-quarter comebacks in seven wins this season and brought the appellation "Tebow Time" to the massess, and he'll smile and demur:
"I don’t think it’s ‘Tebow Time;’ I just think it’s ‘Bronco Time,’ and the team stepped up as a team. We play for one another and continue to trust one another, and I think that makes all the difference in the world."
Tebow also dropped one of the inspirational maxims of the year in his post-game press conference:
"If you believe, unbelievable things can sometimes be possible. I think that’s pretty special that we have a team that constantly believes and believes in each other."
I'm thinking that Tebow might want to put that one on posters. His Broncos are 7-1 with him as a starter in 2011, and one game clear of the Oakland Raiders in the AFC West.
