Patriotic Assimilation is as American as…well, as Broncos Football!

I confess I am not a zealous football fan, and until a month ago, I hoped Tim Tebow would don a Colorado Rockies uniform so I could get really excited about him. But like the other five million residents of Colorado, I have come to love the amazing Broncos quarterback who does not hide his evangelical Christian faith.

According to a poll by a national sports magazine, Tebow is today the most popular American athlete, ahead of Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, Peyton Manning, and (no surprise here) Tom Brady.

Tim Tebow has made believers out of millions in more ways than one. Add to the list three devout Muslim brothers in north Denver.

Go Tebow! It is right now 14-7, New England, but Denver has the ball....95 yards to go to tie the game!

They can say what they want, Brady and Belicheat have to be feeling the pressure.

The last post-season game they won was in 2007 against San Diego!

Assimilation is greatly under rated.

LOL.

I saw the story about the witches yesterday.

I didn't even know they were NFL fans.

Tebow is a terrific person and story but the option is not going to get it done against the Pats at home.

I had hoped the Bronco defense would keep it close but this might get ugly.

Somehow, that is not so ‘1600s’ is it?;)

This is ugly...Brady with 4 scores in the first half...but they’ll make adjustments in the half and this could turn out to be not quite a a laugher. Brady’s last pass was a thing of beauty.

So far it looks like TBow is getting TBoned. I have nothing against TBow, but please.......he is hardly the only player that has demonstrated their faith on or off the field before in the NFL.

Yeah, it's turning into a bit of a rout.

I don’t think no amount of intervention would help against the Brady passing attack!

New England is The Borg and the Broncos are getting Assimilated.

I’m thinking that Brady kinda wanted to prove something this game....

He should.

If they had lost a third straight home playoff game, I doubt they'd keep comparing him to Montana and Marino.

Marino? How many Superbowl rings did he have...?

It’s not always about the rings.

Well, considering that Denver had no offensive line nor defense on the field, Timmy did fairly well!

Yeah, I don't think you can really blame him for this loss.

The thing is, even if Denver wanted to go with a different QB the franchise is boxed in because of the season they had.

That's a little like saying the Battle of Midway was just a little waterfront brawl.

Tom Brady took Tim Tebow to school and back today. Detention began when the fourth quarter began and Brady had thrown more touchdown passes (six) than Tebow had completions (five) in the three quarters previous.

Tebow is a likeable fellow. An admirable fellow. With a lot yet to learn about passing up and surviving in the NFL. He had a season to remember, and he ran full-tilt into three Super Bowl rings and a lifetime's experience (not to mention a defence that seemed to have no intention of making even one of the mistakes the Steelers made a week earlier), and he's got nothing to be ashamed of. He was outplayed and outclassed on the field. Unfortunately, that can happen any time, any place. (A lesson Brady has learned and re-learned a few times in his career . . . )

Remember these words because, normally, for me football's postseason means spring training is only that much closer to beginning . . .

The Giants are still in it-at least, for the time being.

They have a better team than they did when the won the SB-although I have the lurking suspicion they'll be eliminated much earlier this year, unfortunately.

A lot of that may depend on how the Packers regroup after the death of their offencive coordinator's son. And, whether the Giants tighten up where they need to and close the holes they showed when they lost a regular season game to Green Bay that they could have won.
