Tim Tebow’s brother, Peter, apologized on Twitter on Monday for gloating after the Denver Broncos, Tebow’s former team, lost to the Baltimore Ravens in two overtimes last Saturday in an AFC divisional playoff game.
My comment after the game was uncalled for. I may root for another team but I should never gloat about anyone’s misfortune. I’m truly sorry.

On Saturday, Peter tweeted:
Did anyone else just see Payton Manning give the awkward turtle sign?!?

“That’s karma, Elway.” — wife, Tebow-lover

Tebow took the Broncos to the AFC divisional game last year, where the Broncos lost to the Patriots. In the offseason, the Broncos replaced Tebow with quarterback Peyton Manning, the former Indianapolis Colts great who was coming off of neck surgery. It is believed that Broncos general manager John Elway never had faith in Tebow’s abilities at the quarterback position.
After the Broncos lost to the Ravens this year, though, Tebow has one more playoff victory for Denver than Manning. Tebow played limitedly for the New York Jets this year, and the Jets will reportedly release him at the end of the season, leaving the quarterback’s future as a starting quarterback in the NFL in doubt.
