It’s Tim Tebow Time

The Denver Broncos are playing the Minnesota Vikings this afternoon and Tim Tebow, NFL quarterback, out-and-out Christian, and home-schooled homeboy is once again front and center.  Whatever anyone may think about his athletic skills or his ability to throw the ball, Tim Tebow has shaken up professional football.  The controversial Christian sports figure has garnered much criticism for the very public displays of his evangelical faith.  From kneeling in prayer on the playing field to etching bible verses into his eye black, Tebow has raised the hackles of the oh so politically correct.  But despite the flack, this unapologetic Christian quarterback has delivered on excitement, wins, and achievements, as ESPN has pointed out:

  • Twenty Two rushing attempts, the most by a quarterback in any game since the merger in 1970.
  • The longest game-winning touchdown run by a quarterback in the final minute of the fourth quarter in NFL history.
  • The first quarterback with more rushes than passes in a game since Joe Ferguson did it for Buffalo in 1974.
  • Rushed for 117 yards and joined Norris Weese as the only Broncos quarterbacks to rush for 100 yards in a game.
  • Helped the Broncos become the first team in NFL history to win a game when it trailed by 15-plus points with three minutes remaining.

Still in the first half and the Broncos are leading the Vikings 7 to 5.

    OK, so I must admit I have been a life long Broncos fan. However, even if Tebow was not a Bronco I would be cheering for him. What a great role model for young people today! Far cry from Michael Vic!

    …I don’t know what “unthiking” is, though. Sloppy typing…

    If I liked football, I would certainly be a Tebow fan. The abuse being heaped on him by anti-religious bigots is revolting. There is no rational reason for it; it’s prejudice, plain and simple.

    One thing I’d like to see is gay people of faith (and conservative inclination in general) publicly standing up for Tim Tebow — and clearly distancing ourselves from the secular-leftist hivemind that so often demands our unthiking allegiance.

    …Wait a minute! You’re already doing that! And I’m glad to see it.

    • Win or lose, I think Tebow is a great role model for boys and young men. With professional sports filled with so many moral slime bags, it’s great to see a guy who really respects himself and others. The secular-lefties will continue to push their game plan of using the diversity gambit to sideline and silence the expression of Christian values and faith. But I think people are beginning to see through the smoke screen and to sense the Left’s real agenda here. And you’re right, Lori, we need more courageous Christians and other people of faith standing side-by-side in support of Tim Tebow.

      Onward Christian Soldier, marching as to war!

      I’m a gay, conservative woman in the Denver area. My comment on Tim Tebow is under the other Broncos heading. We love Tim Tebow. It’s amazing how his teammates talk about him and he them. This town is really charged up over Tim.

      • It was an exciting game this afternoon. The Broncos have really turned it around and I think the discipline, focus, and positive energy that Tebow brings to the quarterback role is a big factor in their success. No wonder Denver fans love him.

    I like and admire Tim Tebow, even though he beat my Chargers last week. The world needs more people of faith who are not afraid to stand up for what they believe, not less. Go Broncos!

    • I’m a Vikings fan but I’m finding myself rooting for the Broncos. And yep, the western world really does need more people of faith like Tebow who are not willing to be silenced by the pressures of an anti-religious, secular-loving culture.
