Detroit Lions Fans, You Should be Thanking Tim Tebow

Whether you’re usually for him or against him, all Lions fans should be united in thanking Tim Tebow this evening. The Chicago Bears led the Denver Broncos 10-0 late in the fourth quarter but Tebow found Demaryius Thomas for a 10-yard toucdown pass and Matt Prater kicked a 59-yard field goal to send the game into overtime.

The Bears took the overtime kick off and marched into field goal range but a fumble by Marion Barber changed the face of the game dramatically. Tim Tebow was his usual self in the overtime but also was able to complete three of four passes to set up Matt Prater’s 51-yard field goal to win the game.

The win puts the Lions a full game clear of the Bears in the playoff race but it also is important for the Lions as it is a Bears loss against a team the Lions beat earlier in the year. Results against common opponents is just one of the tie-breakers that could come into play at season’s end.

Thank you, Tim, Thank you.

    Tebow wasn’t all that impressive in the victory today against the Bears.

    He has the intagibles. But as far as skill, he has very few skills as an NFL quarterback and after four very misleading years at Florida, it is showing. But as long as the Broncos keep winning, who cares? Just don’t expect me to praise him.

    All I can say is wow… Tebow is amazing. He was off early and his receivers kept dropping balls but they played as a team from the 4th quater on. There’s no doubt they believe they can win if the game is close and it’s fun to watch. Tebow is a leader and you can’t take that away from him. 7-1, period. whatthehellbook . com
