Yesterday was a sad day for many people including Denver Broncos fans. It was also a very happy day for the people who were sick of seeing Tim Tebow’s name on every topic on every station for the past week. Many people were quick to claim the loss as “Tebow’s loss” but is that really true? The Tebow critiques (insert Merril Hodge here) were skeptical of the Broncos being able to beat the Patriot for one common belief, and that was the belief that the Broncos and Tebow would be down big early. Tebow, yet again, answered the criqiques by putting up 16 quick points, scoring on his first three drives including an impressive 80 yard opening drive capped off by Tebow running over Pats defenders on his way to a brilliant touchdown.
It wasn’t Jesus or God who didn’t show up on Sunday as many Tebow haters would put it, it was the Denver defense. Yes the Patriots offense is basically unstoppable with one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game and the freakish three headed monster now of Welker, Gronk and Hernandez. It is a tough task to defend but it can be done. Anyone think Belicheck threw together a plan to involve Hernandez more seeing as him and Tebow were longtime teammates in Florida? What better way of beating an opponent than by beating them with their old pals.
Suprisingly, Gronk was a non factor other than his 38 yard catch in crunch time that put to rest any hopes that Tebow could bring the Broncos back. Broncos seemed to have focused more on Gronk but forgot that the Patriots have another 6 foot 5 tight end whos even more athletic than Gronk. Brady looked as good as ever in this game. It was vintage Brady and you could tell he was ready for this game from the get go. He must have been hanging with Gronk this week after practices to get some tips on how to perfect the spike because that was impressive. The ball must have gone 30 feet in the air and Brady doesn’t usually show that type of emotion. With Aaron Rodgers looking hardly like a Pro Bowl quarterback against a defeated Kansas City team who lost their head coach last week, it seems as if Brady might be looking at another MVP award. Yeah Rodgers lost his best wideout and yeah hes put up great stats but who have they played? You are going for history, an undefeated season and your going to let your team score 14 points agains the Kansas City Cheifs? Youre going to let Kyle Orton who could only win 1 in 5 games with the Broncos who have a much better defense and at least one guy someone has heard of on offense? Call it a trap game call it whatever you want but that was pathetic
