Denver's offense is an NFL oddity, rushing the ball 55 times against the Chiefs on Sunday. Tebow threw but eight passes -- completing just two (seriously?) -- but Ryan sees beyond the stats.
"You can go back and when people ask me about him, I thought he was a great competitor and he is a winner, and that's what he's showing right now," Ryan said Monday.
"Are there prettier passers than him? Yeah, absolutely. But again, (we) just (have to) try to find a way to beat him."
Those Jets went wild with a "ground and pound" attack that led the NFL in rushing, a brutal, in-your-face style -- paired with the league's best defense -- that took New York to the AFC Championship Game.
