tyler — I have to tell you I was on the edge of my seat last night watching the Denver/ Pittsburgh football game.
I make no secret about it, I love Tim tebow and the way he plays football. What I love even more is that on every level of his life he was always told he'd never make it.
I'm talking Jr. high through high school and college.
All the blue bloods of the NFL have sniffed for a year and a half he didn't have what it takes to play in the big time, until he started winning.
And the fact he has started winning has made many angry.
First of all, I've seen guys point in the sky for years after they make a great play. No one has ever had a problem with that.
Roethlisberger did it Sunday when he thought he threw the winning pass. I've seen players thank Jesus before. Why is everyone so miffed at this guy?
He never says he won the game. He gives credit to Jesus and his other players and coaches.
This is not a rhetorical question. I don't know the answer why.
What if he were a Muslim giving thanks to Allah. Would all the blue-bloods of the media be hollering then?
No, its my opinion if that were the case, we'd all get a lesson from our superiors- meaning them- we must respect the QB's beliefs out of the the name of diversity.
Muhammad Ali praised Allah when he was on top. Not a peep about that from sportswriters.
But this guy is mentioning Jesus and there is your bottom line. Whether you believe the Bible or not, it says that name will make a lot of people including families argue.
But this is not a religious program.
So, I'll leave it at this, isn't it fun to watch every one of those CBS sports so-called experts have to eat their words?
Maybe the words they have to eat will taste better with some orange crush.
That's my point of view what's yours?
