I believe in Tim Tebow

By Rick Reilly

It’s not just NFL defenses that get Tebowed. It’s kids who will die soon. It’s adults who can hardly stand. It’s high school girls who don’t know if they’ll ever go to a prom.

For the game at Buffalo, it was Charlottesville, Va., blue-chip high school QB Jacob Rainey, who lost his leg after a freak tackle in a scrimmage. Tebow threw three interceptions in that Buffalo game and the Broncos were crushed, 40-14.

“He walked in and took a big sigh and said, ‘Well, that didn’t go as planned,'” remembers Rainey. “Where I’m from, people wonder how sincere and genuine he is. But I think he’s the most genuine person I’ve ever met.”

Recently I wrote that Tim maybe needs to call an audible once in a while in his witness for Christ. Maybe it’s the rest of us–me included–who need to rethink what we are doing. Tim, just keep on doing what you’re doing. You don’t need any advice from me.
