Tebow Throws For Biblical-Like 316 Yards In Broncos Win

More reasons why the anti-Tebow movement is gaining momentum. There are ignorant people who have no life but to complain about other people. Originally, Tebow-haters despise an individual who wears Jesus on his or her sleeve. After Sundays miracle win, it is difficult to find a rational fan who isn't impressed by Tebow's results. However, the Tebow-hater will now admit that Tebow's technique is problematic. Again, Tebow-haters will find a way to hate Tebow. So, they look for faults. Even though the religious intonations may bother some, majority of fans do not see it as a problem. Tebow's game, not his character, will be the subject of the debate, which is what reasonable people have been trying to talk about for the past 11 weeks. Even though last Sundays status were merely coincidental to the Bible, let's stop doing Tebow a disservice by chasing the red herring.

(CBS Denver) — Only Tim Tebow could turn his passing yards into a biblical passage.

In a thrilling 29-23 overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers, the Denver Broncos quarterback threw for 316 yards and set a postseason record of averaging 31.6 yards per completion. John Ourand of Sports Business Journal reports that the final quarter-hour television rating for the Broncos-Steelers game was, you guessed it, 31.6.

The religious aspect takes shapes with the number 316 because one of Tebow’s favorite Bible passage is John 3:16:

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

Tebow would put “John 3:16″ on his eye-black during his playing days at the University of Florida.

The Broncos will continue to seek “eternal” life in the playoffs Saturday as they hope to take down the New England Patriots.
