Tim Tebow handles pressure with ease time and time again. On a big stage in the sports world, he continues to make the team that flung him aside look very petty. Tim Tebow and Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas won the award for Best Moment for their 80-yard touchdown that beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime of last season’s AFC Wild-Card Game.
Thomas looked awkward going to the stage and declined to speak and that’s because he talked down of his QB at the time. How does Tebow handle it, by making him look silly by showing nothing but high class.
“I want to congratulate DT, that was a heck of a play. He was amazing all year, especially when he needed to come up big, and that was a pretty nasty stiff-arm.
“I also want to congratulate and thank all of my old teammates — take care of them, Peyton — and I just want to thank them all.”
The “Take care of them, Peyton” comment is a shot across the bow (not meant to be malicious). I loved it. This is why people think he’s the ultimate teammate. Still thinking about his old teammates. No I don’t think he magically will resolve all the Jets issues from last season. That takes 53 guys in order to do that, but I do believe he can be the injection the team needs for a positive winning attitude.
