Once again, Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow and rookie linebacker Von Miller have been nominated for respective weekly awards on

Tebow, who has gone 4-1 as a starter this season, has been nominated for the GMC Never Say Never Moment of the Week.  Tebow led a late game 95-yard drive which Tebow capped off with a twenty-yard scamper that was the go-ahead score in the Broncos 17-13 win over the New York Jets Thursday night.

This is the fourth time Tebow has been nominated for the award this season.  He’s won the award twice, following his Week Seven win over the Dolphins and Week Eleven win over the Chiefs.

Miller, who leads all rookies and AFC players in sacks this season, has been nominated for the Pepsi Rookie of the Week award.  Miller recorded 10 tackles, including nine solo stops, three tackles for a loss and two sacks in the Broncos’ 17-13 victory over Jets. He also added a forced fumble, four quarterback hits and one pass defended.

Miller has been nominated for the award several times this season but has yet to win the award (seven of the ten awards have been given to offensive players).  Miller does however have a good shot of being named the Defensive Rookie of the Year.

Vote for Tebow at and for Miller at

    They are both very deserving.
    Miller should be Defensive Player of the Year as well as Rookie DPOY.
    As long as we keep winning with last second heroics from Tebow, he will keep deserving to be nominated for the never say die award, even though I think it’s a silly award.

    Miller is deserving of ROY but he plays defense so there is all most no way he gets it. Maybe if he leads the league in sacks he will get it.

    Yeah, if only they gave out a ROY to a defensive player, too.  They could call it “AP Defensive Rookie of the Year.” 

    What?  They’ve been doing that for 44 years?!?
