Turns out Tim Tebow, the Broncos' evangelical quarterback, is working miracles at the starting spot, as noted by Bill Dwyre, at Los Angeles Times, "Broncos have a prayer with Tim Tebow":
From San Diego -- The premise that a higher being doesn't really care about football games continued to be challenged Sunday.Also, from Kate Shellnutt, at Houston Chronicle, "Tebow popularity fueled by football fanatics, evangelical faithful."
Tim Tebow won another one. He led the Denver Broncos to a tie in regulation and a win in overtime. We aren't sure whether he is magical or mystical. We don't know when, or if, he will start multiplying loaves and fishes. Right now, we just know he wins.
This time, at the end of five quarters of National Football League action — well, that's too strong a word, but more on that later — it was the San Diego Chargers who had to genuflect before him.
These days, when Tebow takes a knee, it isn't a football term.
After the 16-13 win, completed when Tebow led his team from its 43-yard line with 2 minutes 31 seconds left in overtime, to the San Diego 19, from where kicker Matt Prater could end the game from 37 yards, Tebowmania was even more alive and well. Picture a snowball rolling downhill.
There is an aura of the surreal to this. Is he real or is he Memorex?
Tebow has won five of his six starts, and the Broncos are now 6-5. Sunday's success meant that Tebow has led Denver on scoring drives in either the fourth quarter or overtime 11 times in the Broncos' last seven games. The most frightening sight for NFL opponents now is Tebow with the ball, the score in reach and the clock ticking down.
Yeah, that evangelicalism bugs the shit out of progressive dirtbag racist Tom Boggioni of Jane Hamsher's communist Firedoglake. See: "There Will Be Teblood – The Chargering":
Now that Kyle Orton has been cast from DenverEden, God will be particularly protective of Timmy because, Notre Dame or no Notre Dame, nobody wants to see Brady Quinn placing his hands near another man’s manparts. Not even Touchdown Jesus.Oh, hilarious, right? Well not as "funny" as racist TBogg's racist black sexual stereotype slam on Herman Cain as a "jungle boogie black stud" who has "Sexed Up Every Woman In America Including Your Mom." Racist TBogg spices up the post with some white go-go boot betties looking to go down on a big bad black Cadillac-drivin' Shaft-style mofo. And of course the URL there is "Herman Cain's Business Card."
And remember, TBogg was the first to blame Sarah Palin for Gabrielle Giffords' shooting last January: "Fuck it, I'm going there."
Progressive racists and anti-Christian bigots. All too ready to smear the tea parties as racist gun-totin' rednecks, when folks like racist TBogg are the most vile scum this side of the Ku Klux Klan.
