No Tebow Starting at QB, No Playoff Win for Denver Broncos or Playoffs for NY Jets

How many NFL teams would rather win with Tebow that lose without him?

The Denver Broncos got what they deserved in their playoff game with the Baltimore Ravens.

The Broncos were not satisfied with unapologetically pro-life quarterback Tim Tebow, 25, even though he had turned around their 2011 season, taken them to the playoffs and won a playoff came against the Pittsburgh Steelers with a perfect pass for a touchdown in overtime.

As a result, opted to hire Peyton Manning, 36 and out as a result of multiple neck surgeries for the 2011 season to be their quarterback this seaason.

Bulletin: Manning failed miserably in his first playoff game for the prohibitive favorite Broncos, who played at home. He threw two interceptions, one for a touchdown for the underdog Baltimore Ravens, he was sacked three times, he fumbled on his 37 yard line in the third quarter and, unlike Tebow, he was no running threat. His team stayed in the game only because a special teams player returned both a kickoff and a punt for touchdowns.

In two playoff games for the 2011 season, Tebow rushed 15 times for 63 yards and had two touchdown passes, no interceptions and a meaningless fumble, not a critical one like Manning. The loss to the New England Patriots hardly was Tebow's fault.

The New York Jets, who hired Tebow for the 2012 season, proved very foolish, sticking with Mark Sanchez, who failed to lead his team to the playoffs in 2011 and was worse in 2012, insteaad of switching to Tebow when Sanchez faltered. Even the Bronocs had been smart enough to switch to Tebow, rather than miss the playoffs.

If Tebow was not unapologetically pro-life, would the Broncos still be in the playoffs?

If Tebow was not unapologetically pro-life, would the jets have made the playoffs? What is certain is that the Bronocs didn't win a playoff game this year and the Jets didn't even make the playoffs.

How many NFL teams would rather win with Tebow that lose without him?

The new general manager of the Jacksonville Jaguars doesn't seem to be a smart fellow, because he doesn't want Tebow.
