Tim Tebow 316

Denver QB Tim Tebow has been popular in the sports nation recently. From fourth quarter come from behind wins, to now winning his first playoff game. As many of you know, how passionate he is about Jesus Christ. Tebow’s favorite biblical verse is John 3:16. Tebow used to write 3:16 in black under his eyes in college, when he played for Florida. Tebow puts his faith before anything else and has been criticized a lot lately because of this. Saturday Night Live even poked fun at him for saying “I just want to thank my lord and savior, Jesus Christ.”

Is it so wrong for him to express his faith the way he does? Football players have pointed up to the sky or took a knee for years. Nebraska played Penn State a week after the Sandusky scandal and both teams took a knee and prayed before the game. Tebow gets criticized every time he takes a knee; people even have a name for it now (tebowing). I feel that he has been an inspiration to a lot of people and a good role model for kids watching the sport.

For weeks ESPN has been saying that Tebow and the Denver Broncos will not go far into the playoffs. It was stated that Tebow is more of a runner than a passer and other teams know this and will shut down their running game. Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Tebow had one of his best passing games in the NFL. Tebow threw for a season high 316 yards passing and a 31.6 yards per completion, which set an NFL record. Pretty ironic that he would put up numbers like this, isn’t it. Tebow threw an 80 yard touchdown pass in overtime to beat the Steelers.

John 3:16 reads “For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life.” Let’s talk about something else that is rather ironic Tebow’s coach is John Fox and vice president and ex-quarterback that has been working with Tebow is John Elway.

These are a lot of coincidences don’t you think. I could see having 316 yards, but to have a pass rating of 31.6 yards per completion and both of his bosses to be named John. Whatever it is coincidental or not, it has made people think about it. So if this is a message from our Lord and Savior, we got the message.
