Dansby, whose Dolphins were the first victims of Tebowmania, told Jim Rome today that he and other members of the team saw Godliness in Tebow’s stunning comeback from a 15-point deficit in the fourth quarter.
“Us losing to Tim Tebow the way we did, we seen it first hand,” Dansby said on Rome’s radio show. “Young man is blessed. Young man has a special anointing on him. And for God to show himself in that game the way He did, through the guy He did it through, it opened a lot of guys’ eyes on our team. And it brought a lot of guys closer to God, so like I said, everything happens for a reason. . . . My hat goes off to Tim. And God working through him like that, it opened up a lot of eyes. He’s a blessed young man and I wish him much success the rest of his career.”
Is it thus true that defeating Tebow is like defeating the Lord himself. Will the bearded man upstairs hold it against these players, banishing them to Hades if they dare sack his second Son? Will people in 2000 years talk about Ray Lewis like they do about Pontius Pilate? Is John Fox the holy father?
More to the point, would Christian players actually want to sign with Denver if Tebow remains the starter? Would Tebow’s Biblebeating help the Broncos attract better players? Strange times.
