Tebow's time to take a bow for Denver Broncos - The National

Fantasy Spotlight: Tim Tebow has a ton of value - The Denver Post

Please, No More Tebow Talk - Mile High Report
First things first:  I've been a Broncos Fans since I first saw them play the Detroit Lions in an Exhibition Game and beat the big bad NFL for the first time on August 11, 1967.  I was eleven years old, I sat in the north end zone seats with my Dad and I cheered like crazy when the game was over and my team had won.
