Tebow Time

December 1, 2011

I recently just read an article on my man Tim Tebow.  This article goes into the happenings before the game in which he lead his team to yet another come form behind victory.  His 4th quarter antics are surreal but many still question how long these will last.  I firmly believe that as long as he is seeking God (Matthew 6:33) he will do great things.  Tebow can conquer any adversity he faces because he has curried favor with God.  Now getting back to the article, Tebow’s coach found it necessary for him to give the pregame speech.  Tebow went and did so and inspired his team. They rallied around him to achieve a common goal. Just imagine the impact we can have on each other’s lives of we were to do what Tebow said in his speech. As iron sharpens iron, one man sharpens another.

On the night before he delivered the Denver Broncos to their fourth straight win, Tim Tebow was asked by coach John Fox to address his teammates.

According to the Denver Post, Tebow turned to the Bible, quoting Proverbs 27:17: “Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.”

Tebow’s motivational message worked. The Broncos put together their third fourth-quarter comeback since Tebow took over for starter Kyle Orton, rallying past rival San Diego for a 16-13 overtime win.

“He said iron sharpens iron and men sharpen other men. And I think that’s totally true,” rookie linebacker Von Miller told The Post. “He gave us a great speech. We came out (for the game) fired up. And that was a wrap.”

Tebow, when told of his teammates’ reaction to Saturday’s speech, was touched.

“It was a huge honor,” Tebow told The Post of being given the chance to speak. “I just tried to share from the heart.”

For the first time all season, Tebow completed at least half of his passes Sunday, going 9 for 18 for 188 yards and had strikes of 39 yards to Eric Decker and 23 to Dante Rosario on the game-tying drive late in the fourth quarter.

“I’ve never seen a human who can will himself to win like that,” Miller told The Post.

The Broncos (6-5) are 5-1 under Tebow and have forced their way into the race for a playoff spot. They face the Vikings in Minnesota on Sunday.
