Tebow sends Patriots back to the drawing board

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) -- Bury the blueprints on how to counter Tim Tebow. He can beat you with his arm as well as his legs.

The formula up until last weekend was to stack the box and dare him to beat you with his erratic left arm.

Coming off his worst game as a pro, the most maligned quarterback in football did just that in snapping a three-game skid and sending the mighty Pittsburgh Steelers to an early playoff exit Sunday.

Tebow, whose record-setting redemption kept the Denver Broncos' thrilling roller coaster of a season roaring right along, is more challenging than ever to defend.

So, the top-seeded New England Patriots (13-3) are preparing for his deep passes as much as the Broncos' bothersome read-option offense.

    What is up with the kids being brainwashed by his Tebow person? They are all acting like he is more popular than Christ! Tebow is just another dumb jock.
