Elway's First Season Game by Game - Mile High Report
After watching the game yesterday, I heard the phrase wildly inaccurate, and incompetent. That got me thinking about Elway's first season game by game.

The Tebow critic vs. the Tebow fanatic. If this game were a UFC fight the Tebow critics were laying a beating on the fanatics for the first 3 rounds. Shot after shot. Hit after hit. Face into the mat and back up again. Face into the mat and back up again. Then, beaten and bloody, came a knockout punch that the critics never saw coming. A left-handed hook that KO'd them in a heartbeat... and the crowd goes silent. This was unexpected.
