Tim Tebow, the Mile High Messiah, helped the Denver Broncos to win their 6th straight game against the hapless Chicago Bears when Marion “the Barbarian” Barber (or “the Moron”) ran out of bounds…stopping the clock, giving Tebow enough time to drive the Broncos to a field goal to tie the game. Then, for the third time in the last six games, the Broncos won in overtime….perhaps, dealing a death-blow to the Bears playoff hopes!! Jane said it perfectly, “God likes to watch Tebow play!” (God also likes to watch my buddy, Mikey, play golf…but that is another story!)
The Bears would have easily won the game if Barber had not run out-of-bounds in regulation play. Instead of just falling to the turf and letting the clock kill any chance Denver had, Barber’s brain freeze was all the Broncos needed. Barber made a really stupid choice for an experienced NFL player. Barber is paid millions to use his body and brain to win football games. If I was the general manager of the Bears, I would put him on waivers tomorrow! On the sideline, Barber’s team-mates avoided him like he had leprosy! (Furthermore, Barber fumbled in the OT period setting up the opportunity for Denver to win with a field goal…..good game, Marion!)
Hats off to Tebow…he has brought fun back to the NFL! His throwing form sucks and he won’t last as a starter; but, we can enjoy the fun until the party is over.
P.S. BTW, God has other plans (maybe some last-minute shopping) next Sunday when Tom Brady and the Patriots visit Denver. Whatever the Vegas odds are, take the Patriots!
