FoxSports.com columnist Greg Couch is the latest national voice to argue Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, who has propelled Denver to a 6-1 surge, should win the NFL MVP award if he wins the AFC West division title. CBSSports.com columnist Gregg Doyel first made the argument two weeks ago.
And here’s the thing: Tebow is the NFL’s Most Valuable Player.
Not officially, of course. It’s just an opinion. No matter what his passer rating is or QBR, or even his technically inept throwing motion — not the way any youth coach would teach — he’s more valuable to his team than any other player in the league. Aaron Rodgers is his closest competition.
When Tebow took over, the Broncos were 1-4. Now, after Tebow had yet another miracle comeback Sunday to win at Minnesota, they are 7-5.
… Is Tebow more valuable to the Broncos than Rodgers is to the Packers? There is no right answer, no proof. The Packers wouldn’t be perfect without him. But they would win their division.
The Broncos are losers without Tebow. Now, everyone on the team believes all the way to the finish line.
