Tebow Time’ is up there with ‘Linsanity’ as one of the most unlikely hype trains in sports history. Denver made him their starter after they went 1-4 in their first five games of 2010. He had amazing luck on the field because he was a terrible passer but they made the playoffs in 2011.
However, the writing was on the wall because Denver knew he wasn’t the answer. Yes, the fans and media hyped him because it was fun to watch his chaotic energy. But they knew they couldn’t win with him as their starter so they threw him away (via Us Weekly).
