Jumbo Football has found a way to keep us in the loop for the 2012 football season.

The “Tebow Phenomenon”

For those who actively follow professional football, you are probably no stranger to the name Tim Tebow. The former third-string turned starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos has stirred up quite the media buzz this season, helping his team make it to this Saturday’s game verse the New England Patriots, which will decide who is going to the AFC Championship game. But is it all just a bunch of hype? Psychology Professor Sam Sommers shared his thoughts on the “Tebow Phenomenon” in a blog post, taking a more holistic approach to the Broncos recent success.

But there isn’t just one simple reason for their success at the end of these games. They have a great defense. They’re running an unconventional offense that seems to wear opponents down by the 4th quarter. There’s luck too. Real life can be complicated that way.
