He retreated more than ten yards, avoiding tacklers, then abruptly changed direction and headed upfield. He cut toward the sideline, forcing one defender to miss by making a 360-degree spin move before being forced out of bounds at the five-yard line. One play later, he hit receiver Demaryius Thomas in the end zone for a touchdown. Still, the Broncos were running out of time. After the extra point made the score 15–7, the Broncos kicked off. But instead of booting the ball downfield, they tried and recovered an on-side kick to get the back near midfield.

Moreover, he won the respect of his teammates, who twice named him team captain. Yet despite his record of leadership and his performance, people were not convinced that Tim could be a starting quarterback in the NFL. Professional football is much more complex than the college game, particularly on pass plays. A quarterback must learn to read the defense almost instantaneously and decide which receiver will be open. Defenders are much faster and bigger, and quarterbacks have to release the ball quickly and throw more accurately than in college.

All over the country, on talk radio and online, fans and sports writers criticized and made fun of Tim. Once again, it would have been easy for him to quit, but that’s not who Tim Tebow is. As he later said, he didn’t listen to the criticism: “I’ve said this before, but I never thought I was a finished product. I never said I was. I never believed I was. I’m going to work every day as hard as I can, one game at a time, one day at a time. . ” Besides, Tim’s coaches and his teammates still believed in him.
