Broncos fans longing for Tim Tebow is the best thing ever
By Matt Conner
Kansas City Chiefs fans can take heart that at least it’s not so bad that we’re begging for the return of Tim Tebow as starting quarterback.
Look, we’ll be honest: it’s been a tough week. Two losses in five days will bring any fan base down, but when you’ve been riding high cheering for the best overall team in the entire NFL, losing two heartbreaking games to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Oakland Raiders has provided the ultimate downer. Fortunately misery loves company and somehow, for some reason, the Denver Broncos decided that it was also a good time for a two-game losing streak of their own.
What makes the Broncos slide so fun to watch, since of course it’s always pleasing to see the Donkeys lose as a Chiefs fan, is that they’re doing so in miserable fashion. The L.A. Chargers beat the Broncos at home at StubHub Field (that great home advantage plays a big part, eh?). But not only did they beat them, they actually shut out Denver. That hasn’t happened since Tommy Maddox was Denver’s starting quarterback.
Given the Broncos’ horrible offensive output on Sunday, it was laughable to read Broncos Twitter on a random note and notice something again and again: Tim Tebow mentions. In fact, we couldn’t stop once we got started, a rabbit hole of sorts of Broncos fans clamoring for the good old days of Tebow at the helm. Of course, most fans are being facetious and just trying to find ways to vent their frustration. But you know things are bad when Tebow is being mentioned in a good light.
Since we could all use a good Monday laugh, let’s take in some of the Broncos misery ourselves.
