2012 AFC Wild Card, Steelers Vs. Broncos: Tim Tebow Has Praise For Steelers

As the Denver Broncos get set to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers in their first playoff game since the 2005 season. Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow talked a little bit about the Steelers and their experience in the playoffs. "He's done something that a lot of quarterbacks want to do: He's won championships. He's at his best in crunch time," Tebow said about Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Tebow has struggled the past few weeks, as the offense as a whole has done much in the three consecutive losses. It won't get much easier for the quarterback against the Steelers aggressive defense and he knows it. "All 11 starters have a blitz called for them. It's something you watch. And you always have to know where 43 is," Tebow said. Tebow acknowledges he'll need to pay special attention to where '43' is, safety Troy Polamalu who is expected to play despite dealing with some injuries.
