Tebow Time Is Over... For Now

If the Ravens are able to win today against the Houston Texans they will be heading north to face the New England Patriots. The Patriots laid the smack down to Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos last night as Tom Brady set a playoff record throwing for six touchdown passes. Honestly it could have been a lot worse too. Brady had five touchdowns at the half.

Denver's magical one game playoff win streak was ended with a thud as New England put an end to Tebow mania. The Broncos looked completely over matched as expected and Tom Brady looked like the chosen one in this game. New England's dynamic young tight end duo looked unstoppable as Rob Gronkowski had 10 receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns and Aaron Hernandez lead the Patriots in rushing with five rushes for 61 yards. That's right rushes. Hernandez lined up at half back for the Pats and looked pretty good doing it as well.

On the other side of the ball Tim Tebow had nine completions on 26 attempts for 136 yards and no touchdowns. Not quite good enough to win in New England.

After the game Tebow talked about what a learning experience this all was for him and said he will use this to improve for next season. For now his season is over but it will be very interesting to see how things shake out in Denver this off-season. Will Mr. Tebow be lining up behind center next year in Denver? I guess we will all have to wait and see.
