The Denver Broncos previously claimed they were 95% certain they had Peyton Manning locked down. They were the #1 seed in the Manning Final Four, and they played like it, as they cut down the nets today.

Will Jesus Help Tim Tebow Win the Superbowl? A Brief History of God-Fearing NFL Players

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has taken much criticism for his God-fearing, I-Heart-Jesus ways.

(Guest post from Kent Page McGroarty)

Tim Tebow and the trend of Tebowing is going world wide. You knew it was only a matter of time until the Taiwanese animators we all know and love made their spin on it.

Tebow is one of the NFL’s most polarizing players, and his signature prayer-celebration, referred to as Tebowing, has replaced planking as a national fad. The Broncos have gone 3-1 (the one a 45-10 drubbing by the Detroit Lions) since he replaced former Boilermakers and Chicago Bears star Kyle Orton as starting quarterback.

Before the hysteria of Tim Tebow fever engulfs Denver with certain religious fervor, Denver Broncos fans will have to realize St. Tebow will not have his top target and main weapon when he makes his first start of the season.

The Denver Broncos traded Pro Bowl receiver Brandon Lloyd, the league’s leading receiver in 2010, to the St. Louis Rams for a conditional 2012 draft pick.

Curious timing, as the deal comes a week after Tebow officially took over for Kyle Orton at QB1.
