Video: Tebowmania

posted at 9:58 pm on January 9, 2012 by Allahpundit

We’re 25 hours late with this, but oh well. It’s still newsy for the three readers who haven’t yet seen the game-ending TD in endless rotation on ESPN today.

Can you root for Tebow if you’re not a believer? I do, but his religious identity is so key to his persona that it feels odd to endorse Tebow the player without endorsing Tebow the evangelist. It’s like listening to gospel music: You don’t need to believe in order to enjoy it, but if you don’t then you’re relating to the material in a completely different way than most devotees. I like him because I like underdogs and because he plays with heart even though he’s far from being a top-tier QB — far enough, I think, that he probably won’t be a starter for long. But he’s a phenomenon right now and that’s always fun in sports, especially when it involves underdogs. Having the Broncos in the Super Bowl would be insane. Here’s hoping.

As for all the 3:16 coincidences — and there are more of them than you think — I’m unimpressed. Although if Brady throws for 666 yards next week then, admittedly, I’ll have to rethink some things.

If you like underdogs with heart then you like me.

apocalypse on January 9, 2012 at 10:02 PM

The cool thing is,from a football perspective, the only reason that happened was because Pittsburgh was playing coverage solely to stop the run .

Meaning, Pittsburgh thought so lowly of Tebows arm they dared him to throw.

pamplonajack on January 9, 2012 at 10:02 PM

And Tim Tebow? Hey, anyone who is surprised didn’t catch his act when he was leading the Gators (chompchomp) to the National Title.

Kid’s a winner. Just knows how to win football games.

i’m one of the three who haven’t seen this! i don’t watch sports!

but the thing about the 3:16 coincidences is pretty amazing. actually i don’t think they are “coincidences.”

the lesson we can all take from this tebow-mania is, thank God for your talents/skills, He will do amazing things in your life if you just trust Him!!

I don’t need to say why!

KOOLAID2 on January 9, 2012 at 10:11 PM

Simply amazing performance from Tebow. But it was interesting to see the ESPN coverage of the game afterward. In that final touchdown, the reporter’s emphasized how great a job the receiver did of getting open and running for the touchdown–granted a great accomplishment, but hardly an acknowledgement of Tebow.

On the other hand, the fawning coverage of Rothlesberg, who heroically played with a bum ankle, threw pin-point accurate passes, and brought his team back from a two-touchdown deficit. All true, but quite a contrast in coverage.

Yet, the media boobs never realize how biased their coverage is. One thing that the Tebow story has revealed, in glaring colors, is that the liberal media also extends to sports journalism. Any wonder that Olberman came out of this melieu?

I remember when people said that Terry Bradshaw couldn’t play a lick and would never stick in the NFL. He ended up playing 16 years and has four super bowl rings.

Here’s the Wiki entry for Bradshaw. It sounds like TT and TB had a lot in common.

A tough competitor, Bradshaw had a powerful – albeit at times erratic – arm and called his own plays throughout his football career. His physical skills and on-the-field leadership played a major role in Pittsburgh Steelers history. During his career, he passed for more than 300 yards in a game only seven times, but three of those performances came in the post-season, and two of those in Super Bowls.

Jets lost big to the Pats in the regular season, then beat the Pats handily in the playoffs.

Au contraire, Allahpundit! Even us atheists can feel the spirit after 30 seconds of this.

Ladysmith CulchaVulcha on January 9, 2012 at 10:14 PM

I have no idea how he’s going to do against the Pats. Broncos have had the Pats’ number for years, especially in the playoffs. Do I think Tebow stands a chance against Brady? Probably not. But I’m going to be watching and rooting for the kid all the same.

It’s a great story, and I’m glad the Broncos won (although I think it would have been a different game if the Steelers had been healthy), but I think the clock strikes midnight next week in New England.

I am not a huge Broncos fan, but Tebow and his teamates truly deserve recognition for this season. In down times, everyone needs someone to rally behind, and if our Media weren’t so liberal, this would be huge. Yeah, I know it is somewhat, but it should be so much bigger

I was watching ESPN and they were talking about if Denver would get rid of Tebow after this season or move him to second string.

Tom Jackson said as beloved as Elway is in Denver if he did that – he would be run out of town by the fans.

gophergirl on January 9, 2012 at 10:21 PM

Oooh good one.

gophergirl on January 9, 2012 at 10:17 PM

Thank you! Tebow is very inspiring.

FLconservative on January 9, 2012 at 10:21 PM

We are Steeler fans, but also love Tebow. It was bittersweet yesterday, but a great game nonetheless. The last play was spectacular. Tebow looked like a top-tier QB yesterday. A glimpse of the future, which is being a starter not a benchwarmer.

I think it’d be epic to see a Denver vs Baltimore championship game given Suggs comments about not needing God to win. EPIC showdown. EPIC.

The only reason anyone in Denver was watching the Broncos halfway through the season was to see Tebow play. If Elway were stupid enough to bench or trade the guy, he might very well be given the Ben Nelson pizzeria treatment.

Bishop on January 9, 2012 at 10:31 PM

I want Denver to beat New England next weekend only so that Baltimore will host the AFC Championship game the following weekend. This city’d go bananas hosting two playoff games. Alas, I don’t expect that to happen. As bad as the Patriot defense is, they’ll more than compensate by torching Denver’s D.

Baltimore’d eat Tebow for lunch. Pittsburgh’s D was obviously old and broken yesterday. Baltimore is healing, and I expect Lewis, Gnata, Reed and Webb to be in top form. It would be nothing like what Tebow faced in Denver. Especially if he had to deal with the crowd noise at M&T Bank Stadium. One of the loudest parks in the league.

Tebow’s gonna come down to earth in a painful way. I’ve enjoyed watching him, except when he beat the Chargers. But reality’s going to crash his party. He’s not a good NFL quarterback. He’ll need to demonstrate a lot more than he did yesterday to convince me otherwise.

arnold ziffel on January 9, 2012 at 10:30 PM

I’ll give it a shot.

The old coach they fired (Josh McDaniels) is the one that drafted him. Tebow does not have the “perfect” form – he brings his arm down low and has a different release with the ball. He’s best in the option which most teams do not like to run.

I’m sure someone else can add more than what I did.

gophergirl on January 9, 2012 at 10:33 PM

Still sort of amazing to me that no one seems to acknowledge that the WR, Demaryius Thomas, made the play. Decent throw by Tebow, GREAT run by Thomas.

carbon_footprint on January 9, 2012 at 10:40 PM

That wasn’t a Billy Graham revival in Mile High stadium yesterday or in millions of living rooms so yes, people can and do root for Tebow and care nothing about his religious beliefs. A fair number of them probably that his behavior seems to reflect his beliefs and he’s not out roughing up underage girls or driving drunk or generally acting like an a-hole off the field but they don’t otherwise care about his beliefs.

There are plenty of reasons to root for a guy who seems to be loving life and is sincerely humble about the amazing opportunities he’s been given and isn’t a perfect QB (who is, really?) but just goes out there and gives it what he’s got. He reminds us all of what it’s like to be young, when life is supposed to be fun and challenging yourself to be more than what other people think you can be is worth the effort.

Tebow to Thomas. Touchdown. Maybe not up there with Montana to Rice but it will be remembered for a long time.

Bennett on January 9, 2012 at 10:40 PM

gophergirl on January 9, 2012 at 10:33 PM

What they most dislike about him is that he loves to run and scramble, which to a team owner and management, means future injuries and a lot of money paid out while your guy is on the DSL. It’s a clear money thing, though I’m sure some of them have a problem with his public faith displays.

Anyone find it curious that Belicheck hired the former Denver coach McDaniels, who drafted Tebow and worked closely with him before being fired, to replace the Patriot’s offensive coordinator (?) who let for the Penn State job? Belicheck didn’t wait until next season, he had the former Denver coach start ASAP. Hmm.

Considering he runs like a fullback – I can see their point on that one.

I think it’s a combination of that, his faith displays and his ball release to be honest. He doesn’t fit the mold and they all expected him to fail – and he’s doing everything but. Elway is going to have to swallow his pride and mentor him. Heh.

Very Interesting. If you watched the game his passes we about as perfect as you can get against a very good defense by the Steelers.

How poetic to do it with one pass in overtime right when the rules had changed this year allowing first possession TDs to be automatic wins.

Bill Maher hardest hit.

42 million people tuned into the game. Highest rated wild card in 24 years.

And don’t you just know that Bill Belichick is repeating that right now to his team. Don’t expect the Patriots to make the same mistake.

Yeah, and the Pats have never choked in a pressure situation, eh? 19-0!

Tebow already has the highest QB Rating for a Bronco QB in the playoffs in their history. Yes, higher than any Elway game.

It will be great. Uber-Christian Tebow going against the team and coach responsible for the largest cheating scandal in NFL history.

Anyone find it curious that Belicheck hired the former Denver coach McDaniels, who drafted Tebow and worked closely with him before being fired, to replace the Patriot’s offensive coordinator (?) who let for the Penn State job? Belicheck didn’t wait until next season, he had the former Denver coach start ASAP. Hmm.

Just another day in the Patriots Dynasty. One of their coaches takes another job and they not only don’t lose the guy for the playoff run, they add another, younger, better coach. A coach who was the architect of their offense. The one who not only coached the most prolific offense in NFL history, but who got 11 wins out of Matt Cassel. A coach who scouted, drafted and mentored Denver and Tebow, and who this year already has gameplanned against Pittsburgh, Baltimore, New Orleans and San Francisco twice. Nope. Move along. Nothing to see here.

The best part of this whole thing is knowing all the doubters and haters can NEVER enjoy the ride as much as the people rooting for the kid! I’m a life-long Patriots fan – but I’ve never enjoyed watching football as much as the past three months watching Tebow. The overtime touchdown was freakin’ sublime!

And yes I rooted for him to beat the Patriots earlier this month. And I’ll be rooting for Denver to beat the Patriots this weekend.
