Huge win for the Lions
Looks like the Lions, Bears and Falcons for the 2 wildcard spots. Come on Cowboys take out the Giants!!
It's interesting going through this thread after reading Klosterman's article this week. He really hit the nail on the head.
The crux here, the issue driving this whole "Tebow Thing," is the matter of faith. It's the ongoing choice between embracing a warm feeling that makes no sense or a cold pragmatism that's probably true. And with Tebow, that illogical warm feeling keeps working out. It pays off. The upside to secular thinking is that — in theory — your skepticism will prove correct. Your rightness might be emotionally unsatisfying, but it confirms a stable understanding of the universe. Sports fans who love statistics fall into this camp. People who reject cognitive dissonance build this camp and find the firewood. But Tebow wrecks all that, because he makes blind faith a viable option. His faith in God, his followers' faith in him — it all defies modernity. This is why people care so much. He is making people wonder if they should try to believe things they don't actually believe.
This whole thing has gotten very annoying, but mostly because so many people have missed the forest for the trees. When you look at what's really happening here it's one of the most interesting things that's happened in sports in recent memory- it's a story about the way we think these days, and it's not a cumbersome Terrence Malick movie- it's unfolding in the language of football.
I always find it interesting how people like to rag on Tebow. The guy does nothing but win wherever he goes, over and over again. His fault is he wants to give Christ credit for his success. If he was Muslim, Gay, New Age or just about anything eles, nobody would say anything. It would be socially intolerant to do so. His teammates never trash him, they just follow his lead and yet many in the media or general public ridicule him for being to good. Meanwhile he just keeps winning. Crazy to me! Time will tell, but personally I think he made Urban Myers. Without Tebow and his leadership, in my opinion Florida has a good record under Myers, but doesn't win the National Championships it did. I don't think he is half the coach he's made out to be, but time will tell over the next couple years. I'll take Hoke and his staff over anybody right now unless Meyers pulls another Tebow out of the hat. Just an opinion!
I notice that he doesn't thank Jesus when he loses. Why not? Isn't it all part of the grand plan?
You are wrong! Show us where he doesn't thank Jesus. Win, lose or draw the guy is consistant. He has ALWAYS thanked Jesus. Have no idea whether he will in the future, but so far he always has.
How can I show you something that doesn't exist??
why would you thank Jesus for losing? im sure he thanks jesus for giving him the opportunity to try and win. its about giving the glory to god. unless you think losing is glory. thats like if your dad bought u a car and you get in a accident. than you thank your dad for helping u get in a accident.
It would be pretty funny if he claimed being gay made him win more football games. That's the kind of craziness I could definitely support.
Could not agree more. Your right on. If Tebow said he was gay he would have unlimited support and anyone who trashed him for being gay, would be banned for life. LOL, but say your a Christian and acknowledge your faith and you are fair game. No holds bar
Dude, what?! This isn't really a conversation I want to have on this blog, but claiming your gay in professional sports is definitely not more supported than thanking God for your accomplishments (which happens after every game).
...but in German it's referred to as realitätsfremd.
Yes there is:
Disposed by man, because man is so unrighteous.
Carl's stone cold lock of the century of the week was the Denver Broncos. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wo-h-sbQfBA
Can't stand all the media hype about him. Not his fault, but I'll take him giving the bears a loss
It's sad that you can't have a disscusion about Tim Tebow/the Broncos without religon being brought into it. Who cares if he is very religous?
I have a brother in Denver who tells me that there are Tebow fans out there who are hoping to draft Denard in order to have more spread qbs in the system, to keep things going if anything happens to Tebow. He is not a Tebow fan, and I don't know how may people he thinks have that hope.
