More Than 70% of People in Denver Think the Broncos Will Lose to Steelers

Anyone who puts a lot of stock into momentum leading up to the NFL playoffs likely won’t be giving the Broncos any kind of shot to beat the Steelers this weekend. Denver has lost its last three games, including an embarrassing offensive performance and a 7-3 loss against the Chiefs last weekend. Very few would argue that they are a better team than the Steelers, but Denver gets to play at home and we have seen much stranger things happen in the NFL playoffs (see: 2010 Seattle Seahawks). Broncos fans, however, do not seem very confident heading into the Wild Card round.

According to a poll taken by FOX 31 in Denver, 73 percent of the people in Denver believe Tim Tebow and company will lose to Pittsburgh this weekend. The voting is now closed with 840 people having responded. Obviously that does not represent the entire population of Broncos fans, but it is a fairly decent indication of the toll the last three weeks have taken on their confidence.

The Broncos may need a little extra assistance from Jesus if they want to advance deeper into the playoffs, but where there’s a will there’s a way.  We certainly know Tebow isn’t lacking in the will category.  Head coach John Fox is also hoping Broncos fans will do their part and hold onto their tickets.

“We’ve got unique fans here,” Fox said. “I would encourage all of them to keep their seats and not sell them to Pittsburgh fans.”

Denver will need an edge from the home crowd and will need Tebow to be on his game.  If the game were in Pittsburgh, I’d be predicting a rout.  Since I fully expect Mile High to bring the noise, the Broncos have a shot.

    This actually is a good matchup for the Broncos. The Steelers aren’t as explosive offensively as say the Patriots, especially with Big Ben hurt. They have a chance.

    God shared with me that Tebow would struggle as long as he promoted the company named after the pagan goddess of victory… NIKE. 

    I shared this with Tebow and his family… and I was told to be quiet by someone representing him. 

    You see… Satan came up with the pagan goddess NIKE many years ago to take honor away from God. 

    NIKE has been worshipped as the pagan goddess of victory… but that is a lie of the devil. 

    God is the only God who should be worshipped period… and He should be honored for 

    Victory because of the Victory He gave us through Jesus Christ! 

    Tebow has promoted products honoring the name of the pagan goddess NIKE… while promoting products honoring the Name of the Son of God… Jesus Christ. 

    God is NOT happy! 

    God even says in His Word… 
    “Be sure to do all that I have said to you. You must not even say the names of other gods; those names must not come out of your mouth.” – Exodus 23:13. 

    And on 1-1… you saw what happened to Tebow. 

    Here’s another 1 that Tebow should pay attention to: 

    Commandment 1… “You shall have no other gods before me.” Exodus 20:3 (God’s Word).

    Tim… I am your brother trying to get you to obey God. 
    God was kind enough to warn you through me… it’s time to drop NIKE and be blessed for honoring God.
