Tebow Thursday Special

Let's be real here: Every NFL fan that has NFL Network on their cable system will be tuning in for the Broncos-Jets game tonight. Tim Tebow? Rex Ryan? Come on: The entertainment is assured.

I'm more bullish on Tebow and the Broncos than most: I think they are going to shock the Jets (and the world) and eke out a win.

Tebow just tweeted out his would-be eye-black of the day: Colossians 3:15. A quick translation (and, as usual, there are lots of versions, so you want to take this more generally):

"Let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace. And be thankful."

I stopped trying to read into TT's selected Bible passages as metaphors for football strategy back in 2009, but suffice to say, I don't think Rex Ryan has his defensive players thinking "peace."

More after the game.


  1. Tebow completed first 3 passes counting shovel pass to Lance Ball

  2. What a game! A bore and a pain for most of the game until the last 5 minutes when Tebow was finally given the full reigns of the offense. I still felt like Fox was scared to let Tebow be Tebow for much of the game (until the end). Hopefully Tim's last drive will convince him otherwise and Fox will finally let him run his kind of game.
