Wyche: Inside "The Patriot Way"
Things operate a little differently in New England, and Steve Wyche explains how Pats' hodgepodge secondary embodies what the franchise is all about. More ...
"You play the game to be in a game like this," Tebow said during a taping of "NBC Sports Talk Live from the Super Bowl," which was to air later Thursday. "It's definitely a dream to be in a game like this."
Tebowmania swept the country after Tebow led the Broncos to five fourth-quarter comebacks and four overtime victories -- each more improbable than the last. He spawned a new verb, "Tebowing" -- the practice of kneeling on one knee, elbow perched on the other, fist to forehead -- and everyone was soon doing it. There was even a website devoted to the practice.
"That Tom Brady is really good," Tebow said when asked what he learned from the game. "And just to continue to work. ... If we get better and continue to work, anything can happen."
Tebow's detractors have said he'd be better suited to play running back in the NFL than quarterback, with his unorthodox throwing motion. But Broncos boss John Elway has already declared Tebow the starter going into next season's training camp, and the quarterback said he knows where he needs to improve.
"Definitely my footwork and drops," he said. "Getting from receiver to receiver, my progressions. I continue to try and work on things and I was very blessed to have a good quarterback coach in Mike McCoy. But, ultimately, I'm just going out there and playing football."
