Tebow still leaning on God in games

It’s halftime of the Chargers-Broncos game, a fairly meaningless game after the Chargers lost to the miserable Bengals last week. But it’s a chance to watch my Bolts and to see how Tim Tebow is adjusting to the NFL.

He’s not having the game this week that he did last Sunday against the Texans, but he’s playing better than most of the experts expected. Tebow also appears to have found an alternative to the scripture verses in his eye black that proved “controversial” at Florida.

After last Sunday’s game, the Larry Brown Sports blog explained:

The verse appears to be Luke 2:10-11, though I could be wrong. If that was his verse for the day, then it’s unbelievably foreshadowing. Luke 2:10-11 says “But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord.”

So is Tim Tebow the Messiah for the Denver Broncos? Is he bringing the good news causing great joy to all the people? Heck yeah he was. How about leading the Broncos to a 17-0 second half comeback including two fourth quarter touchdowns and a game-winning drive late in contest. Maybe Tebow just knew he was born to keep making special happen throughout his football career.
