Tebow not connecting, but winning

By Bill Williamson

Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow did nothing in the first half to help prove he can be an effective NFL passer.

Yet, Tebow is doing what he does -- leading the Broncos to a victory.

Tebow was 0-for-4 passing in the first half at Kansas City on Sunday. Yet, Denver was leading 10-0 at halftime.

Tebow is 2-1 as Denver’s starting quarterback this season. The Broncos continue to audition him. They want to see him become an effective passer. It is not happening. But as long as the Broncos win, they will have patience with Tebow.

Tebow has 24 yards rushing on three carries. Denver’s running game has come alive since Tebow took over. It had 169 yards on the ground in the first half.

Denver running back Willis McGahee, who is having a nice season, left with an apparent knee injury early in the game and Knowshon Moreno left as well. Lance Ball is Denver’s lead back for the rest of the game.
