Poll: 43% think God helps Tebow win football games

The perception is that as Tebow is kneeling on the sidelines during a game, he is praying to win. One of Tebow’s pastors has only added to that perception, telling the celebrity gossip website TMZ that a recent Broncos six-game winning stream was “God’s favor.”

Asked if a less-pious quarterback would be winning such games, Pastor Wayne Hanson of Summit Church in Castle Rock, Colo., said: “No, of course not.”

To be sure, Tebow would – and does – credit God for all he accomplishes on the football field. But the idea that he prays for his team to win doesn’t appear to be quite correct.
