Opponents have cracked the code on Tim Tebow

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Having won both the Denver Broncos' starting quarterback job and the AFC West title by default, Tim Tebow heads into his first playoff game mired in the worst slump of his life, his image battered and his confidence crumbling.

Or so it seems.

Even though the results and his body language on the football field suggest otherwise, Tebow insists he's not shaken as he prepares for the Pittsburgh Steelers' visit Sunday, and Broncos boss John Elway said Tebow has an edge about him this week.

After watching him pile up comeback after improbable comeback, opponents have solved the unorthodox quarterback, hemming him in the pocket with disciplined defense and daring him to beat them with his erratic left arm.

The result is the first three-game losing streak of his career.

    Quit complaining people I would love to see you out on the field it isn't as easy as it looks.Just be glad we made it into the AFC west!

    I agree. Teblow is wayyy over-rated. The teams he's won against, all have losing records. Anyone could shine against those teams. But when he has to play a halfway decent team, like the last three, you see what happens. He will never take the Broncos deep into the playoffs, much less a Superbowl...ever. Put him in as a TE, then he will succeed. Broncos defense has been winning games, not Teblow.

    Tim Tebow is the most over rated quarterback in a long time. Move him to Running Back and get a quarterback with an accurate arm.
