After an improbable win at home over the Pittsburgh Steelers the playoff run of the Denver Broncos came to an end last night at the hands of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Brady tied a postseason record with 6 touchdown passes as New England went on to easily win 45-10. The Patriots will host either the Baltimore Ravens or the Houston Texans next weekend for a chance to go to Super Bowl XLVI while the offseason begins for John Elway, John Fox, and the Broncos. Quarterback Tim Tebow’s offseason could include spending some time with Colorado lawmakers.
Pueblo Democratic Rep. Sal Pace, former House minority leader and Congressional candidate in District 3, has extended a special pleading invitation to demonstrative Christian Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow, asking him to lead the Tebow-infatuated state House in prayer some day this session.
“By leading the Denver Broncos into the playoffs and giving us our first playoff victory in six years, you have given all of Colorado something to cheer about in times that have been filled with all too often negative news,” Pace wrote to Tebow. “I cannot think of anyone better than you to lead the Colorado State House in the Morning Prayer and inspire our day’s work.”
“I asked Tim Tebow to lead us in daily prayer because he serves as a great example of Coloradans, and he serves as this example to our kids,” Pace said in a release. “He is successful because of his hard work, determination and faith– and what other qualifications are better to lead the State House of Representatives in a daily prayer?”
I would imagine Tebow will be pretty busy with engagements between now and when training camp starts so this probably won’t be the last of these types of stories we hear about. He’s also determined to prove his critics wrong so working on his game will surely be on the agenda as well.
Despite Tebow’s record as a starting quarterback performances like yesterday’s 9-26 (34.6%) for 136 yards won’t help in stopping criticism towards him as a capable thrower. Players seem to have been in support of Tebow but there had been questions around whether or not the front office is. It sounds like John Elway plans to work with Tebow personally during the offseason but that doesn’t necessarily means he’s committed to him for the future. North Dakota lawmakers considered amending the state’s constitution in an attempt to help the University of North Dakota keep the Fighting Sioux nickname. Would Colorado’s “Tebow-infatuated state House” try something similar to ensure he’s the team’s starting quarterback going forward?
