"Can I say something, honestly? I think this offense is stunting your growth," Sharpe said. "Don't you think at some point and time you're going to have to be able to develop and throw the football fundamentally?"

The Broncos face the Chargers Sunday in a very important AFC West matchup. Denver, at 5-5, is just one game back of Oakland in the division, and a game up on San Diego. One of the reasons the Broncos are back in the playoff-race conversation: Tim Tebow, who took over a 1-4 team from Kyle Orton and promptly went 4-1 as a starter. (Orton, meanwhile, is the newest member of the Kansas City Chiefs.) 

Ahead of Sunday's matchup, CBS Sports' Shannon Sharpe sat down with Tebow to talk about his style of quarterback play, his future with the Broncos, why he's such a polarizing figure.

One of the best exchanges from the interview:

Sharpe: Do you believe this organization is 100 percent behind you?
Tebow: I believed that I am very blessed to play for this organization.
Sharpe: That wasn't the question I asked you -- whether or not you were blessed. I asked do you believe John Fox and John Elway 100 percent believe Tim Tebow is the guy that's going to get them back to winning championships?

Run the ball and play good defense. This has been the key to winning in this league for 50 years. Look at the Patriots, when they ran the ball well and had a great defense, the won 3 superbowls. No blowouts all close games. When they had the greatest offense of all time they lose the SB. No defense no run game.

Tebow wins again, doubters lose again.... Tebow and the Broncos and all the fools who bet against the for big points are the reason I'm winning my office pool. Thank you Tebow and thanks doubters. Please keep doubting!

He is stepping up at the right time and the coaches are planning games around minimal dependence on passing. Shame on Denver's opponents for not capitalizing on Denver's lack of a good passer.Tebow has one to three big plays per game and if the opponent can't build the lead and step up to stop Tebow at the right time, then they just are inferior as a TEAM.

When Shannon Sharpe learns to speak English, then maybe I'll 'lissen' to whatever the f**k he is trying to say.
Being a decent tight end in the NFL doesn't entitle you to do "MUST HEAR/SEE" interviews.
Go get some speech lessons, ya maggot. You're like Lisa Guererro, but without the looks.

Shannon Sharpe shouldn't be allowed in front of a microphone, since his long, long, long HOF speech where he shamelessly plugged for his brother Sterling to be elected to the hall. At least he didn't cry during the interview.

I respect Tim Tebow for his professionalism, enthusiasm for the game of football, and being a positive role model. What confuses me is the constant attacks on him and his game. He is a winner and always has been. While I am not a Florida Gator fan, I have always respected the way Tim handles himself and gives it his all when on the field. I think people need to stop trying to compare him to others and realize he is unique. I am also impressed with his respect for others, kindness in his attitude, and living up to his witness. It's a rare and precious thing these days. I would prefer a league of Tim Tebows any day who are about the game and not themselves.
