Think Tim Tebow, Broncos Won Because Of Divine Intervention? Enough Already!

As all of the world knows, Tim Tebow led the Denver Broncos to a 29-23 victory against the Pittsburgh Steelers on a marvelous 80-yard touchdown pass in overtime.

Tebow’s heroics, his overall performance, and the John 3:16 symbol throughout the stat line (Tebow’s favorite Bible verse is John 3:16, he also threw for 316 yards and averaged 31.6 yards per completion) has inspired some people to say that it was divine intervention that led the Broncos to victory…including professional racist, umm I mean radio host Rush Limbaugh.

To be clear, divine intervention is a term for a miracle caused by God’s/a god’s active involvement in the human world.

Just because Tim Tebow is a religious guy that won a dramatic playoff game, it doesn’t mean that God or a divine intervention was involved. The Broncos won because they ran the ball well, key Steelers were hurt, and Tim Tebow stepped up and played his best game as a NFL QB.

I don’t hate Tim Tebow, I actually really like the guy. Tebow is a lot fun to watch, I was rooting for the Broncos to win last week, and I will be rooting for them to win this week versus New England. I even got his autobiography for Christmas.

Saying that God was involved in the Broncos’s win is illogical. The grace of God didn’t guide some of those deep balls into the receivers hands. Tim Tebow made those throws, not God. Tim Tebow looking off safeties, selling play actions, and staying alive in the pocket caused those big plays.

Tim Tebow has one upset victory in the playoffs and everybody thinks he is Jules from Pulp Fiction.

To think that God would step in and change the result of a football game is pretty ignorant.  Where was this divine intervention during 9/11 or when Martin Luther King was shot? Oh but wait, Tim Tebow needs to win a football game. God must have said “Peggy (God’s secretary ) cancel all my appointments, Tim Tebow needs my help now!”

Yes, I know that having a strong Christian winning a playoff game and then sprinkling in a few biblical symbols might make you feel all warm and cozy inside about God and your faith, but it doesn’t mean the Lord was involved. It was the hard work and the determination of the Denver Broncos that won that game.


  1. Boy this writer doesn't hide his political religious slant.

  2. Nor his poor grammar. "God must of said" …….. must HAVE said.

  3. Guess this writer doesn't beleive in God…wow!

  4. Well according to SNL, it is Jesus who helps Tebow, not God. Get your facts straight.

  5. 42% of Americans think that divine intervention is involved in Tebow's success, which confirms something I've been thinking for a while now: 42% of Americans are idiots. Even if people think that there is a personal god and that he directly intervenes in our lives, you have to assume he has nothing better to do than help a quarterback complete passes. Forget all the famine in the world, children with cancer, etc… he's got the Denver Broncos at the top of his list. Ridiculous.
