As someone who absolutely hates football and blatant, public displays of religion, if I hear the word "Tebow" used as a verb one more time, I think I'm gonna puke!

And I do find it quite odd that a good looking star like him claims to be a virgin and has never been known to date women. Makes me think he's hiding soemthing

But go ahead, put him on a pedestal and wait to be disappointed. Nobody ever lives up to such a reputation.

I've heard the Tim Tebow admits that God could care less who wins the game.

At any rate, the country seems to need heroes, and I for one am glad to see his picture plastered everywhere.

Gives me a break from Lady Gaga

He lost 3 in a row after his streak. I doubt his fans believe him to be immortal anymore, but it doesn't mean Jesus isn't good to him. Just watch the S&L skit!

Also, you may find this strange to hear this may be coming from a semi-progressive boulderite, but don't assume anything about his sexuality just because he doesn't date much. The paranoia of being a young extreme puritan Christian who is constantly in the limelight and working non-stop can make for some unusual dating practice or lack there of. I've seen it many times.

Awssome
Awesome game!

Tebow needs a little more fine tuning but he's certainly helped the Broncos out of their slump and he's got a great future.

He won enough games during the regular season, to make the play-offs, but rarely throw the ball more than 200 yards. Yesterday he led his team against one of the best teams in professional football, and he beat them by throwing the ball exactly 316 yards.

If it is a coincidence, then it is a pretty cool one. Since he also painted Philippians 4:13 on his face, it will be interesting to see if he can throw the call 413 yards next week against the New England Patriots
Go Patriots!

Do you think there will be football played in heaven? It's hard for me to imagine such a thing.

Tebow's Biblical Game: 316 Yards Invokes Key Verse

Amaziangly his yards per completion was also 31.6 (10 completions and 316 yards).

The final quarter-hour TV rating for the game was...
you guessed it...
31.6.

We've beat Pittsburg twice this year. Denver is another story.
I'll have a hard time rooting for the home team, if we end up playing Denver.
You gotta beat us first! Go Texans!
