Tim Tebow connected with Demaryius Thomas on an awesome 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play of overtime and the Broncos defeated the stunned Pittsburgh Steelers 29-23 in the AFC wild-card game on Sunday.  Wild doesn't even begin to describe it. The play took 11 seconds and was the quickest ending to an overtime in NFL history. After a three-game "funk," Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos came through in the end with a major upset. Tim knelt in the end zone with his fist to the heavens praising God and took a victory lap.

From Fox News:

Thomas hauled in a high play-action pass at the Denver 38, stiff-armed Ike Taylor and then outraced backup safety Ryan Mundy to the end zone.

''I was just saying, `Man trust your speed. Trust your speed. Don't cut back. Don't cut back.' And he kept it straight. He outran the guy,'' said Willis McGahee, whose fourth-quarter fumble helped Pittsburgh tie it. "'I was like, `Oh my God, is he still running?' Please just go. Please. Please.''

I'm a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan, but this year I have paid a lot of attention to the Denver Broncos and Tim Tebow. In the midst of being criticized for the way he throws the football and for his faith, Tim stays true to himself and "talks and walks his faith." But because of this,  many people are quick to hate and ridicule him. My question: "Why?"

I am so pleased to see an athlete that is truly an example for not only kids, but adults as well. No, Tim is by no means perfect, but he aspires to be.  These days, that is rare. Tim is an inspiration!
