On Saturday, the Baltimore Ravens pulled off a double-overtime upset over the Denver Broncos to advance to the AFC Championship Game. The game didn't need a Peyton Manning interception in overtime for fans to unnecessarily make Tim Tebow comparisons, but hey, it certainly didn't hurt.
These "comparisons" break down to the simple truth that the Broncos won a playoff game that Tebow happened to play quarterback in, while the Broncos are now 0-1 in playoff games that Manning is playing in. These are facts.
They're also useless facts, given that any comparison between the two quarterbacks is terribly asinine. Which means Twitter ate it up. Here's some gems and no, you will not find any Skip Bayless tweets in here. Sorry (but not sorry).

Then of course, we have this one, because Tebow has been known as the vindictive type in the past, ya know?
Certainly he'll never admit it, however Tim Tebow had big smile on his face watching Peyton Manning & John Elway walk off field LOSERS.— Ben Maller (@benmaller) January 13, 2013
This user asks if Tebow would have attempted the ill-fated throw that led to an interception. Smart money is on no.
Would Tim Tebow have attempted that throw? #BroncosFansLaments— Alan Hahn (@alanhahn) January 13, 2013
Now, as to this tweet below, I'm not sure if you can see what the character is at the end of this tweet, because I can't, but smart money is on a cross of some sort.
We wasted a trade Peyton's pushing 40 I said it at the start of the season we shoulda kept tebow
