Tebowmania Silenced by Patriots and Tom “Terrific” Brady’s Record Setting Six TD Performance, 45-10 … However, It Does Not Stop Tebowmania
The final score was 45-10, honestly it could have been worse, much worse … However, Tebowmania is much bigger than football.
Tim Tebow, Tebowmania and the Denver Broncos came to a crashing halt last night in Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA. Everyone talked about Tim Tebow and his miracle working all week after the phenomenal game that he had against the Steelers where he threw for 316. The media forgot about one thing in their exuberance of Tebow and Tebowmania … Can you say Tom Brady?
Patriots QB Tom Brady, the two time Super Bowl MVP, winner of three Super Bowls carved up the Denver Broncos defense for a post season record tying six touch down passes, a record five in the first half, on their way to a convincing 45-10 victory. A note to the MSM, Brady ain’t bad, is he? The Patriots overwhelmed the Broncos from the opening kickoff of the game. Denver never had a chance and there would be no MSM over publicized divine intervention that would save Denver. From the outset Denver was over-matched and for some reason after winning the coin flip, the Broncos deferred to the second half and kicked the ball off to Tom Brady and the prolific PAT’s offense. Huh? It took a little less than two minutes for Brady and the Patriots to march down the field and score. Then the Patriots scored again, again and again.
Watching last nights AFC Division playoff game reminded me of New England Patriot games of their past Super Bowl winning years. Tom Brady and the offense was one thing, but wake up the echos of their defense. The PAT’s defense chased Tebow around all night sacking him 5 times as well as tackling for losses all night long in the running game. The PAT’s defense pounded Tebow all night long. A note to owner Bob Craft, coach Bill Belecheck and the New England execs … look how good the Patriots looked with a defense.
However, for the Tebow “nay” sayers who think Tebowmania is over, think again. Just like how Tom Brady transcends the NFL into pop culture, in his own way so does Tim Tebow. I am a life long patriots fan; however, I am also a Tebow fan. We have been waiting for an athlete to be proud of. Just because Tim Tebow met his Waterloo last night does not mean the end of Tim Tebow or Tebowmnaia. What Tim Tebow has brought to the NFL and to all of us is much bigger than just football. Tebow attracts fans to the NFL who could care less about the sport, the teams or the score. Tebow represents all that is good with athletes and for those who try to do the right thing. Tebow does not hide his religion or his love of God, why should he. Isn’t it a breathe of fresh air to see some one succeed when all others said he could not? Isn’t it refreshing to see an NFL player known more for praising God than killing dogs? Tebow is a role model and although he is not perfect, he does not claim to be. Only his Savior Jesus Christ is, who he honors. All that Tim Tebow does and is can only be a good thing for the NFL, its fans and for our culture in general.Want to know what Tebow gave rise to during a football game, check out the John 3:16 ad that played during last nights playoff game. The nay sayers and atheists will claim seperation of Church and Sports. However, we all know better.
Tim Tebow is a class act. What he does for others not so fortunate is commendable. How Tebow conducts himself should be applauded. Who knows what the future has in store for Tim Tebow in the NFL or for the Denver Broncos. One thing is for certain, there are few people who have life, including sports, in their proper perspective like Tebow. KUDOS!
