Tim Tebow's time in Denver has become a part of The Chosen One's legend.
But can he rekindle the inexplicable magic he displayed during the 2011-2012 season (when the Broncos made the playoffs and defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers on a shocking touchdown pass to Brandon Marshall before being destroyed by Tom Brady and the New England Patriots) in a new location?
It hasn't happened yet. After obtaining Peyton Manning, the Broncos dealt Tebow to the New York Jets, where he mostly rode the pine — and since then, no NFL squad has given him a shot at redemption.
Now, however, he's reportedly on the cusp of signing with the Philadelphia Eagles — a development that caused Twitter to practically explode.
Here are our twenty favorite Bronco-centric tweets about Tebow rising again. Count them down below.
Shit talk all you want, but Tim Tebow is ~15% responsible for one of my Top 25 greatest moments as a @Broncos fan. Demaryius gets the 85%.— Matt Wurst (@mwurst) April 20, 2015
I hope Tim Tebow can start for the eagles. He got cheated out by the Broncos and Jets.— Biggy M™ (@mayoman60) April 20, 2015
Let's not forget, Tim Tebow led a dead-in-the-water Broncos team to the playoffs and a victory over a 12-win squad. #NFL— Andrew Kossak (@aksports) April 20, 2015
