Ryan Clady wasn't much for explaining it. Just enjoying it.
"It feels good," said the Denver offensive tackle after his new quarterback led the Broncos to an overtime victory over the reeling San Diego Chargers. "It feels good to win. I'm just rolling with it."
So is everyone in Denver. Explaining Tim Tebow's success is the hard part, so why examine it too closely?
Tebow is 5-1 as a starter. His quarterbacking skill set seems to be limited, particularly in the accuracy and arm strength departments. What he's limited to, apparently, is winning, known as the Tebow Effect.
The second-year left-hander from Florida did things NFL-backward again Sunday against the Chargers, completing just nine passes, but running 22 times for 67 yards. Thanks to Denver's defense, which effectively boxed up the Chargers, it only took a couple of big, key plays to generate the points needed to win.
As usual, Tebow was good when it mattered. Near the end of regulation, he completed a 39-yard pass on third-and-long, then a 23-yard pass to set up the tying field goal with 1:34 remaining.
In overtime, he ran for 4 yards and 12 yards on the game-ending drive, which led to Matt Prater's 37-yard field goal and the Chargers' sixth consecutive loss.
The ultra-religious Tebow also may have helped in the only way he knows how when the Chargers had the ball. He said he prayed, instead of watched, when San Diego kicker Nick Novak booted wide a 53-yard field goal attempt earlier in overtime. Prayed for a miss?
"Yeah, probably, or maybe a block," he said.
It's a show that has been turning the NFL -- especially its media pundits -- topsy-turvy for six weeks now.
For Clady, the fourth-year pro, adjusting to a hybrid offense with a very un-NFL-like quarterback isn't as challenging as it seems.
"It's not too much different than what we were doing before," said Clady, who was an instant success as a rookie in 2008, finishing behind only Matt Ryan and Chris Johnson in the 2008 Offensive Rookie of the Year balloting.
"We just have to stay effective running the ball."
Ironically, Clady made his reputation early as a premier pass blocker, protecting classic NFL pocket quarterback Jay Cutler. It took more than 20 games as a starter before Clady's defensive assignment scored a solo sack. He was a Pro Bowl starter in 2010, despite suffering a severe knee injury in the offseason that spring.
Now he's blocking for a quarterback who may throw, may sprint around end, may run a draw up the middle or may simply drop back and improvise on the fly.
"I'm just adjusting to the defensive line," said Clady, noting that Tebow's quirkiness has been countered differently by each team Denver has played. "Some teams blitzed more. San Diego played (conservatively) a lot."
Clearly, the Chargers defenders were cautious, trying to keep Tebow at home. Of course, that gave him more time to find his receivers when he did throw.
Whatever is going on, Tebow is having his Effect on everyone and everything, from opposing teams, to the standings, to his own teammates.
"I'm trying to become more of a complete player," said Clady. "This offense is helping me do that."
Thanks to Tebow, no one's an expert at anything anymore.
