That’s it…I’m a believer. Seeing Tim Tebow throw that 80-yard touchdown to Damarius Thomas on the first play of overtime converted me.
I was thorougly convinced that Pittsburgh would march into Denver and demolish the Broncos. The Tebow charade would be over. John Elway would then be free to go get a “real” quarterback. Things would get back to reality.
But the more gimpy Ben Roethlisberger struggled, the more I began to wonder. Tebow actually completed some passes downfield. They may have taken an hour to get there, but they were on target. The Broncos got a lead, and their defense was playing lights out.
Then, just like I thought, the Steelers would wake up. They tied the game. In overtime, they would put little Timmy in his place. Was I fooled. Tebow fearlessly put the ball on the money, beating a Pittsburgh defense so worried about him running that they left a speedy tight end wide open. Game over. Of course, Tebow instantly dropped to one knee..and “Tebow-ed.” They say prayer changes things. It sure has in Denver.
The final stats say that Tebow threw for 316 yards. His favorite Biblical verse is John 3:16. “For God so loved the world…he gave us his only begotten son..” is the gist of it. In Denver, they want to amend that verse to say..”he gave us his only begotten QUARTERBACK.”
So now we know. Beyond a shadow of a doubt. TIM TEBOW IS TOUCHDOWN JESUS !! You don’t have to believe. But I do.
