Not exactly establishing the run so well. I think Tebow showed a lot of improvement in this game especially considering it was a good Steelers defense. All you hatters goin' to hat no matter what Tebow does.
Dude, I'm a Tebow liker who thought that he's gonna make it since he'll put in the work.

Ok, put it this way. The threat to run was established, and in large part due to Tebow being a legit "extra" running threat. Thay's why the Steelers had to commit extra players to stopping it instead of playing their usual game. That left them vulnerable on the back end and that was what precisely done them in at the end. In essence, Tebow's ability to run helped Tebow the passer make those beautiful throws to those wide receivers.

5.0 YPC for Tebow isn't bad, even with a small sample size and the total yardage was above the average amount of yards the Steelers gave up in the regular season (99.8 yards per game)

I understand that and agree. I was just trying to make the point that I didn't think the Broncos "established the run so well" in this game as stated considering the Steelers were stacking the box in order to stop them from running the ball since they were the #1 rushing offense in the league during the regular season.

For sure. Denver looked pretty good against them early in the game when they first played. Then Denver's defense decided to stay on the field the entire second quarter and the game got away from them.

Even though NE hasn't been that great in the playoffs in recent years, it's gonna be really tough for the Broncos to go into Foxborough and win. As much as I'd love to see the Tebow stuff continue, I don't see it happening this weekend. I hope I'm wrong!

After last night, let's see what he can do against that Alabama D.
AMEN to that! There were probably a half-dozen guys on the Alabama defense who will be playing on Sundays very soon.

I know, NE's defense is playing awful this year, but they stopped him last time with the same guys is what else I'm trying to say. NE would be huge. But like people said, it's his defense that is key. NE forced 17 points of turnovers from Denvers offense, most of them off of Tebow, NE is the win Tebow needs not just from the non-believers, but for Elway as well. Keep in mind Elway is still reportedly trying to draft a QB. I'm done talking about Tebow. I hear his frickin' name every frickin' hour of the day where ever I am. As much as I hate NE, and Love Tebow from his college days, I also wish we can stop hearing about him everyday on ESPN. I wish we can fix his bi-polar play and he can make up his mind as to if he's a good qb or a bad one. One week he plays great, the next week he plays awful, the next good, you see the pattern.
