Denver Broncos' Tim Tebow is making quite an impression
The newest chapter to Tebow-mania is in the books.
After Tebow replaced Kyle Orton as starting quarterback, the Broncos have won four of five games and the buzz around the football world has centered around the 25th overall pick of the 2010 draft.
Some are hailing Tebow as the next John Elway.
"It’s impossible to argue against Tebow’s penchant for the heroic," wrote David Roth of the Wall Street Journal.
Everything Tebow does seems to either be considered phenomenal or turn into a phenomenon.
When he dropped to a knee and prayed after a win over the Miami Dolphins in October, people worldwide attempted to emulate what they called "Tebowing."
The same month, Denver locals Justin Knodel and Zach Sheely created a video called "Super Fans," which already has over 80,000 views online. The video praises the athlete to the tune of rapper Nicki Minaj’s “Super Bass.”
“As Bronco fans, we are disappointed how the last decade has gone,” Sheely told A.V. Club. “The team has continued to decline, and in a sense has lost its identity. This team hasn’t really had a ‘hero’ since Elway retired. Tebow has the pedigree of a winner, and we hope he can restore a winning identity and culture to the team.”
