Tebow Of The Day
If you haven't noticed, there's been a lot of talk about Tim Tebow the past few weeks. But if there's one thing you must watch, it's this video of Tebow from last Sunday's comeback against the Bears. The Broncos quarterback was wired for sound and it's easy to see why his teammates love him so much. If you hate Tebow, then you'll be glad to know Patriots coach Bill Belichick is playing his usual mindgames where he talks up the greatness of a quarterback before destroying him. The Patriots and Broncos square off Sunday. Get your Tebrew ready.
