Tim Tebow's latest miracle versus the Jets inspired Bronco Planet to share a musical nod to No. 15: a version of "I Believe" from The Book of Mormon (by Trey Parker and Matt Stone, locals made good and Broncos fans) in which puppets yelp lines like, "I believe... that reading the defense and calling audibles is extremely overrated!" and "I believe... he only looks so confused as a plot to fool all of his opponents!" And there's more where it came from.
Indeed, there's a bumper crop of newish Tebow songs -- and we've collected five of the most memorable, including variations on Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," Bette Midler's "The Wind Beneath My Wings" ("Did you ever know that you're my Tebow?") and the '60s favorite "Jesus Is Just Alright," as well as "St. Elmo's Fire" as warbled by John Parr and SportsNation's Michelle Beadle.
