Comparing the two QB's first 14 NFL starts.
Tebow’s passer rating of 125.6 was the highest in Broncos postseason history. You get that memo Mr. Elway? Just a reminder, this was Tebow’s first playoff game. Mr. Elway, your passer rating for your first playoff start in 1984 (coincidentally, against the Steelers) was 61.1.
Thank you, Josh McDaniels. The Denver Broncos win the game in OT with McDaniels first two picks in the 2010 draft, Tim Tebow and Demaryius Thomas. Tebow haters, what now?? Boo Ya!!!!!
