Tebow good when and where it matters the most

Tim Tebow's passes aren't pretty, his stats aren't spectacular, his footwork is flawed and his mechanics are a mess.

Terrible in these metrics, he's terrific in the only measure that really counts in the NFL: he's 4-1 since supplanting Kyle Orton as Denver's starter.

The surging Broncos (5-5) are back to .500 as they seek to avoid their first consecutive losing seasons since 1971-72, and they've already won more games than they did last year when they went 4-12.

Yet, even after Tebow guided the Broncos on a game-winning 95-yard drive in the closing minutes against the New York Jets on Thursday night, his critics howled about how he can't throw the ball like a standard NFL quarterback and he'll never succeed long-term if he can't improve his accuracy.
