Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and rookie linebacker Von Miller have both been nominated for weekly awards on  Miller has been nominated for Rookie of the Week and Tebow has been nominated for the GMC Never Say Never award for their respective performances in Week Seven.

Miller recorded five tackles — two for a loss and one sack — in the Broncos’ 18-15 overtime victory over the Miami Dolphins.  Miller needs every vote he can get because he is up against Dallas’ DeMarco Murray (who rushed for over 250 yards) and Carolina’s Cam Newton (who seems to be a shoe-in for the Rookie of the Year award).

This is the first time this season Miller has been nominated for ROW, despite the fact that he leads all rookies in sacks.  Tebow was nominated for the award several times in 2010, as was Knowshon Moreno in 2009.

Tebow led the Broncos late-game rally over the Dolphins after a lackluster performance in the first 55 minutes of the game.  Erasing a 15-point deficit, Tebow directed two touchdown drives and scored the tying two-point conversion to force overtime. Denver emerged victorious in the extra period, as kicker Matt Prater‘s 52-yard field goal beat the Miami Dolphins, 18-15.

Also up for the GMC award this week are receivers Plaxico Burress and Mike Wallace, of the New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers respectively.  Though they played well, it seems unlikely that either receiver will be able to compete with Tebowmania.

    I used to think the “Fed Ex Air and Ground Players of the Week” was the silliest weekly award I’d ever heard of.

    I heard Playtex was going to have one for next year called the Playtex Tampon Plugging the Hole award.

    I would vote for Miller, but Murray obviously deserves it more, this week. 

    That being said, Miller is definitely the top candidate for DROY.

    That one isn’t nearly as good as the Masengill Spring Fresh Douchin it old school award (which has been awarded to the Oakland Raiders every week since its introduction)
