Karlos Dansby: Tim Tebow Beating Dolphins Was the Work of God
The Broncos have won six of seven games with Tim Tebow as their starting quarterback. Most of their wins under Tebow have come in the final few minutes, sparking a “Miracle of Tim Tebow” study.
The string of Tebow magic began with a comeback to beat the Dolphins in Week 7. Down 15-0, the Broncos scored 15 points to tie the game in the final three minutes before winning in overtime. You figure Miami would still be upset with blowing the game, but that’s not how linebacker Karlos Dansby sees it.
“I think us losing to Tim Tebow the way we did, we’ve seen it first hand,” Dansby told Jim Rome. “The young man is blessed. The young man has a special anointing on him. For God to show himself in the game the way He did, through the guy He did it through, it opened a lot of guys’ eyes on our team. It brought a lot of guys closer to God. Everything happens for a reason.
“That was something that we couldn’t control, and it was out of our control. 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.”
Many people don’t believe that God has a hand in the outcome of athletic events. Some people even feel that Tebow needs to cool it on the religious talk. But then you have guys like Dansby, who became a believer after witnessing the miracle of Tebow.
I don’t know if God determines athletic events, but I’ve always been a believer when it came to sports. I’ve always felt that if you put in the proper amount of work and preparation, you get rewarded on game day. Call it God, or call it something else, but there is a lot to be said for doing things the right way and seeing a good outcome.
