Why is it so hard for people to accept the fact that Denver Broncos quaterback Tim Tebow believes that Jesus is our lord and savior and has no problem thanking him for his talents? Are they taking things too far or is this part of the divine plan?
According to Denverpost.com:
To begin what turned out to be the biggest week of his professional football life, Tim Tebow was down in the dumps.
All the Broncos were down.
By now, the country knows the Broncos would snap out of their doldrums in time to stun the heavily favored Pittsburgh Steelers 29-23 in overtime Sunday. Tebow’s exhilarating 80-yard dart-and-run pass play targeted Demaryius Thomas, who capped the game-winning touchdown on the first play in overtime by pulling a Bo Jackson and running straight into the tunnel that led to the victorious locker room.
“I was coming back out, and I got crushed,” Thomas said of his celebrating teammates. “Everybody got me in the tunnel.”
The sellout crowd of 75,970 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High erupted in celebration. Witnesses said that in Denver neighborhoods, delirious people were screaming from their balconies. Patrons at Denver-area bars were heard chanting, “Te-bow! Te-bow!”
Tebowmania is once again inflated. It was the Broncos’ first playoff victory in six years.
Heads up, Josh McDaniels. The new assistant coach of the New England Patriots was the Broncos’ head coach in 2010 when he drafted Thomas and Tebow in the first round.
Thomas, Tebow and the visiting Broncos will play New England at 6 p.m. Saturday in the second round of the AFC playoffs. The winner advances to the AFC championship game.
Thomas should be known as Mr. Big Catch. Just two years ago, the Broncos’ Brandon Marshall had 200 yards receiving while setting an NFL record with 21 catches. Thomas had 204 receiving yards in his first-ever playoff game on only four catches.
“This was the most accurate Tebow has been passing the ball,” Thomas said. “It was up to us as receivers to find the right spot.”
Tebow had just come off back-to-back rough performances against the lowly Buffalo Bills and Kansas City Chiefs to close out the regular season. He spent the week covering his ears from a deluge of insults from local and national media outlets.
Worse, Baltimore linebacker Terrell Suggs joined current players Steve Smith, Jermichael Finley and Joe Flacco in bashing Tebow, breaking the unwritten code already long broken by former players.
“I don’t get it,” said Champ Bailey, the Broncos’ star cornerback. “You can say it looks different or whatever you want, but don’t say he won’t make it. You don’t do that. This is like a big fraternity for me. Guys who do that, I lose respect for them.”
So what did Tebow do? He went John 3:16. That’s what Tebow thinks when he hears 316, anyway. Broncos fans of all beliefs will remember Tebow throwing for 316 yards and two touchdowns, and running for another score
to outduel two-time Super Bowl winner Ben Roethlisberger.
You don’t have to be a fan of football or even like Tim Tebow to know who he is with such a widespread of media coverage mocking him and praising him all over. So many are waiting to say “I told ya so!” If he was to ever fall.Vodpod videos no longer available.
