Sometimes I read a article and it says exactly what I would have said.  Here is one of them – by Jen Floyd Engel at Fox Sports about Tim Tebow:

I do not know if Tim Tebow is going to be a great quarterback.

What I do know is I am not willing to bet against him. He’s a winner. He’s inspiring. He has it, whatever it is. He played 10 days ago — his first NFL game action of 2011 — and he actually had the Denver Broncos looking like a team. It was not simply fist-pumping and underdog sentimentality that he brought. He moved the chains. The Broncos scored points with him on the field. He scored.

Engel also cited one of my favorite scenes in one of my favorite movies:  Chariots of Fire.  The scene where the US coach poo-poohs Liddell’s chances in the 400!  Jackson Scholz saw something in Liddell that transcended mere athletic ability.  (The Butler Bulldogs have it too:  Especially under Coach Brad Stevens.)  Coach did not catch it but Scholz did.

Tebow has that too, Engel (and I) contend – and it is part of his faith in Christ Jesus as Lord (for those who seek that faith and power for their lives – try here!) a faith that drives him to excellence on and off the field.

Tim Tebow may or may not be a successful NFL QB.  But it won’t be from lack of trying.  We should pray, not for temporal success for Tim Tebow but that he never falls short of the goal of holiness in a public way.  GO Tim Tebow!  GO Broncos!  (Don’t tell Mom – she is a die hard Dol-Fan!)

    Great Blog! Agree 100%. This Tim Tebow is the REAL DEAL!

  2. The Pro-choice group started a petition telling CBS not to air the Ad. We Pro-Lifers also started our petition showing our support. We are overwhelming more in numbers. Face Book has over 215,000 members in a group called “support Tebow’s super bowl Ad” The Choice groups don’t even have 1000. Thank you America for showing us that we are overwhelmingly PROLIFE and hopefully one day we will overturn Roe vs. Wade.
    the question: how do you feel about the Tim Tebow Ad.

Nothing is more conservative than a republican wanting to get their majority back. And nothing is more liberal than a republican WITH a majority.
