On This Date 6 Years Ago Tim Tebow Beat The Pittsburgh Steelers in the Most Impressive 10/21 Passing Game You'll Ever See
(this video won't play here, but you should watch and see how great Timmy looked on this day)
Hard to believe it's been six years since the great Tim Tebow led the lowly 8-8 Denver Broncos past the 12-4 Pittsburgh Steelers (who let's not forget were defending AFC Champions!) in the wild-card round. Oh what a wild game it was. Many people forget this was also the first overtime game in NFL history that you couldn't just go down, kick a field goal and win. Tebow made sure that wouldn't be an issue.
Does it matter that half of the Pittsburgh defense was out?
No, that's not Tim Tebow's fault, you just play who's out there.
He didn't make the schedule and it sure as heck (won't say h e double hockey sticks out of respect for Tim) isn't his fault Ryan Clark has sickle-cell. The only thing Tim Tebow has ever been guilty of is loving his lord and savior Jesus Christ so much that it ultimately led to him being blacklisted for his outspoken faith #sad.
No exaggeration this is my favorite non-Patriot game in NFL history. I remember watching it live. It's like 9/11 in the sense that you'll never forget where you were when it happened and brought the country together for a short moment of time. Tebowmania baby. I've seen more replays of this game in the last six years than times than I've seen myself in the mirror, and let me remind you I am surprisingly vain for a man who looks like I do. I've spent more time dissecting 2011 Tim Tebow highlights in the wee hours of the night on youtube than Dexter Morgan from the hit Showtime series "Dexter" spent dissecting the bodies of killers he deemed must die according to the code.
Not only did my mans (that's not a typo mom that's hip internet slang) Tim Tebow shock the h8rs by winning a playoff game, but also he did it against the Pittsburgh Steelers, a team that I hate. At times I honestly feel like he did it just for me since I'm his biggest fan. In my book that's about as sweet as it gets. My favorite quarterback going out there just for me. He also made the Patriots road to Super Bowl XLVI much easier, let's not forget that the Patriots would've had to play the Steelers had they won, instead they dismantled the Broncos 45-10. Thanks for that Tim!
I have to thank my good friend, John Sheil aka John Brown aka J wack for bringing the anniversary of such a historic, landmark moment in not just NFL but world history to my attention, and if you're reading this and are looking to buy a home may I suggest going through him?
Yes, Tim Tebow did win a playoff game, I will never let the world forget that. Please do not let the fact that quarterbacks like T.J. Yates, Brock Osweiler, and Blake Bortles also have a playoff win under their belt take away from that. None of them threw for 316 yards on merely 10 completions. A pure boom or bust QB which is quite surprising considering Timmy has never busted in his life (allegedly) too busy taking the absolute world by storm in the latter stages of 2011. Should he still be an NFL quarterback? Yes. Was he blacklisted because of the media frenzy he brings in relationship to his abilities on the field? You betcha! Does the fact that Colin Kaepernick got blacklisted too bring me a little peace of mind in knowing that I'm not crazy for truly believing Tim Tebow (the original kneeler) got black listed for being an outspoken Christian quarterback who can't exactly throw? Why of course.
