Following his first NFL home start in which he threw for over 300 yards and scored twice, Broncos rookie quarterback Tim Tebow has been nominated for two NFL weekly awards.

A finalist for both the Pepsi NFL Rookie of the Week honors for games played Dec. 23-28, and the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week for games played Dec. 23-27, Tebow’s week 16 performance certainly hasn’t gone unnoticed.

This his second rookie of the week nomination this season, he won the award in week ten after rushing and throwing for a pair of scores against Kansas City.  This is the first time however, that he (or any other Bronco) has been nominated for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week this season.

Fans can vote for one of the five rookie of the week finalists and one of the three Moment of the Week nominees at NFL.com until Friday.

You can vote for Tebow by going to NFL.com/Rookies and NFL.com/GMC and casting your vote.

    John Elway is the best thing to happen to the Broncos.. It hard to imagine how enormous his fame would of been if he had the internet to deal with like Tebow.. Wow. good job by the rookie and even if he puts on a good performance against the Chargers the haters are going to say that he did it against a team that had nothing to play for..

    Lets have a moment of honesty our last head coach traded away our Franchise QB, WR, RB, CB.. two years later Cutler is the best thing in Chicago behind Derrick Rose.. Marshall is doing great in Miami.. Hillis is being an animal in Cleveland and Alphonso Smith is playing better.. That said who ever comes in is going to have to work with the talent that is given.. Vets are negotiable.. I'm pretty sure Pat Bowlen doesn't want to watch any more former Broncos in other places succeeding. So expect Tebow to be under center next season.. And without QB competition like what McDaniels insisted.

    I just hope Tebow and the Broncos put it to rivers and the chargettes. I am so happy the chiefs won the division instead of those over achieving (or under achieving, you decide) hemorrhoids from san diego.

  • TD30isMVP

    I see your point on setting your key positions and drafting around them instead of “competition” everywhere and agree.
    Yes let's have a moment of honesty…the QB cried his way out of town, the WR is one mistake away from a year long suspension, the RB (who I still love) was buried in the depth chart and was having issues holding on to the ball, and the CB…really…the one that everyone complained about that couldn't even crack the depth chart? With the exception of Hillis and Smith, if you don't want to be a Bronco then take your cry baby, McDonalds bag tripping bad attitudes out of here. Hillis and Smith were solid trade bait that flourished in their new surroundings. Cutler and Marshall became poison in the locker room. Yes, McDaniels was a horrible manager of the roster, but come on, Shanny left us in perpetual mediocrity and any new boss is going to come in and remake the team to suite their system, you either adapt or your gone.

    Sorry to change subject, but there is a great article in mile high sports (not to be confused with MHR) on Brian Xanders. Well worth the read, it certainly makes me look at him differently. Check it out

    very good article. it voiced what i kind of expected. didnt know about the hillis situation. i would be willing to bet that he disagreed with most of mcd's moves- draft included. certainly wouldnt mind hearing more about/from him in the lead up to interviewing gm candidates.

  • TheTroglodyte

    People see what they want to see. Marshall has 3 TD's, is 21st in rec yards and isn't going to break 1,000 total yards but I guess that is “great” compared to say the 38th ranked guy who only has 710 yards and 8 TD's. Oh wait, no it's not.

    Trading Cutler was the right move too. That Jeff George 2.0 is a LONG way off from being a SB caliber QB.

    Who McD got in return for him is the problem, not that he traded him in the first place.

  • TheTroglodyte

    Great article!

  • robtink242

    cutler is 11-4.. Marshall is the only the dolphins have, QB play there is worst than ever.. horrible offense and he was injured.. get real dude.. you would be crazy not to think lost talent.. i am too optimistic about the future but reality is reality.

  • TheTroglodyte

    Marshall was and is SO overrated. The guy spends way too much time trying to dance around tackles instead of running over people. He always leads the league in dropped balls and he is a head case. And he is ALWAYS “injured” when he doesn't feel like playing.

    What the hell does Cutler's record have to do with anything? Kyle Orton went 11 – 4 for the Bears once too. The guy will never win a SB until he learns some self-control and to stop making retard plays. World class talent, 10 cent head. That's why they call him “Meat”.

  • Kingpins10

    I agree. Marshall is way overrated and drops many passes. We should've never traded Cutler for Orton, and I said it was a mistake when it happened. Orton had 4 years in Chicago. Cutler's play is too sporadic though. I'll take Tebow over both of them combined. Things worked out in the end.

    Big props to Tebow for winning the award! It's good to see him coming out of the gate strong.

  • Rob_Bronco

    Actually, Tebow won BOTH awards. Awesome!
