Tebow's speech helped inspire the Broncos


Denver Broncos coach John Fox asked quarterback Tim Tebow to address the team the night before the Broncos game with the Chargers according to Mark Kiszla of the Denver Post.

Tebow's message to teammates was Proverbs 27:17: "Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."

The Broncos, however, have 100 percent faith that Tebow can lead them to the playoffs after a dismal 1-4 start to this season. "I've never seen a human who can will himself to win like that," Denver linebacker Von Miller said.

"He said iron sharpens iron and men sharpen other men. And I think that's totally true," Miller said. "He gave us a great speech. We came out (for the game) fired up. And that was a wrap."

Tebow, however, was stopped dead in his tracks when told his speech on game's eve had touched the hearts of teammates. "It was a huge honor," Tebow said of being given the opportunity. "I just tried to share from the heart."
