Tim Tebow’s brother trolls the entire city of Denver on Twitter

Silly Denver fans. You thought you were rid of Tebow when your franchise icon John Elway traded him away? Ha ha HA. Tebow is done with you when HE decides he's done with you.

In 2010, the Broncos drafted Tebow, and last year, Tebow led the Broncos to a playoff win. This year, his replacement, some guy named Manning, threw two interceptions as Denver lost in overtime. And while no sane person would say that Tim Tebow is a better quarterback than Peyton Manning, that didn't stop someone with a vested interest in Tebow in pointing out that the most recent Denver playoff win still came at the hands of Mr. Can't-Handle-The-NFL.

Tebow's brother Peter took to Twitter with a simple message: "Am I the only one in Denver who's happy right now?" Well, the Ravens are probably celebrating, but you get the point. (And just to drive that point home, Tebow retweeted someone who wrote, "That's karma, Elway.")

Of course, it's easier to make pro-Tebow jabs on Twitter than it is to score on Denver's secondary. Even so, this nonsense isn't going to stop until Peyton Manning actually wins a playoff game for Denver.
