View Full Version : Football Some 43 percent of Americans believe God helps T3bow win football games

America, you dumb.

Here's the poll.

http://tinyurl.com/74zxynf

Poll Position’s scientific telephone survey of 1,076 registered voters nationwide was conducted January 8, 2012. Among the 1,076 respondents to the Praise God! awareness question, 756 answered yes, with only that 756 responding to the second question. The margin error for each poll question is +/- 3%. Poll results are weighted to be a representative sampling of all American adults.

http://tinyurl.com/72mass3

The question, it seems, had to be asked: Does God help Tim Praise God! win football games?

According to a new poll by the website Poll Position, 43 percent of Americans say "yes."

But how would Tim Praise God! himself answer the question?

The perception is that as Praise God! is kneeling on the sidelines during a game, he is praying to win. One of Praise God!'s pastors has only added to that perception, telling the celebrity gossip website TMZ that a recent Broncos six-game winning streak was "God's favor."

Asked if a less-pious quarterback would be winning such games, Pastor Wayne Hanson of Summit Church in Castle Rock, Colo., said: "No, of course not."

To be sure, Praise God! would – and does – credit God for all he accomplishes on the football field. But the idea that he prays for his team to win doesn't appear to be quite correct.

The National Football League mic'd Praise God! during the Broncos' come-from-behind, 13-10 win over the Chicago Bears on Dec. 11, and besides offering indisputable proof that Praise God! has no future whatsoever as a singer, the video also caught him making the following prayers.

Before the game, he prayed aloud:

"Lord put a wall of protection around me and my teammates today, and we go out there and we can honor you with everything we do and say. I love you in Jesus' name."

During the fourth quarter, he prayed:

"Dear Jesus, I need you. Please come through for me. No matter what happens, win or lose, give me the strength to honor you."

Two weeks earlier, his choice of scripture when asked by Broncos Head Coach John Fox to address the team again spoke more to a desire to express communal strength and courage than an overt desire to win. He quoted Proverbs 27:17, which states: "Iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another."

The poll by Poll Position is a window on the polarizing nature of Praise God!. While 43 percent said Praise God!'s success is, at least in part, attributable to divine intervention, some 42 percent said it wasn't – and the margin of error was 3 percent.

Praise God!'s open faith has turned prayerful sideline genuflection into a national "Praise God!ing" craze as he has repeatedly led his team to victories that, by the measure of sports, seemed miraculous. In Denver, fans call Praise God! the "Mile High Messiah," they have jerseys with Tim Praise God!'s No. 15 but the name "Jesus" on the back, they hold up signs asking "WWTD" (What Would Praise God! Do)?

But his faith has also alienated viewers and players.

Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs recent mocked Praise God! in an ESPN interview, saying, “Once again, God had to save Tim Praise God! and the Denver Broncos."

What is interesting from the NFL videos, though, is how positively many players seem to respond to him. At one point, he tells Bears linebacker Lance Briggs, "I've looked forward to playing you for a long time, man. I love watching you, brother."

Briggs responds: "Thank you, baby."

At another, after being mauled by Bears defensive end Julius Pepper, he says, "Hey, good play, man."

Peppers gives him an affectionate tap on the shoulder pads.

It is a glimpse, perhaps, into why the Broncos have rallied around Praise God! to turn a dismal season that began 1-4 into an unforgettable playoff run.

The question, "Does God help Tim Praise God! win football games?" is ambiguous, and really leaves a lot of room for subjective beliefs to enter. Helping Tim win could mean giving him the air he needs to breath, or the strength to carry on when he's most tired, or, perhaps to some, it means that God's wind carries the football further than it would go for non-Tim.

A looooooong time ago by internet standards I was engaged in a discussion about something like this. It was so long ago that it was basically an E-Mail list that you subscribed to, and when you sent something to that address it copied to everyone on the list. Something like denverbroncos@discuss.com or another. It was before message boards. One of the members had said that he thought it was disrespectful that players thanked God for TD's, good plays and wins in general.

The best response I saw was that they were thanking Him for allowing them to live out His will. That is, if it was God's will for that play to happen then they were praising Him for being allowed to be part of it. Tim carries it a step farther and is very open about it. He sees no reason to hide his faith (neither do I) and will express it in honest, humble terms.

I don't have a problem with it. I do find it (at times) hilarious when my fellow non-believers get their panties in a bunch over it. I understand where the kid is coming from and I respect his integrity.

To quote George Carlin, it's too bad you don't ever them saying "The good lord tripped me up behind the line of scrimmage" even when it's God's will for that play to happen.

Also, if everything is God's Will, including football, why would any of us Chiefs fans ever gripe or complain about anything going on with our team? These decisions were apparently never Carl Peterson's, and now they're not Scott Pioli's either. It's God that wants us to suffer with Matt Cassel.

Why do we get to suffer and the Broncos get to win games? What did we do to deserve that? I'm sure plenty of Chiefs fans go to church and pray and follow the lord and all of that jazz. Yet they're still getting punished within God's Will as Chiefs fan?

Why couldn't God have made me a Patriots or Steelers fan? What did I do to deserve this!?

The people who think God helps God's anointed NFL disciple win football games, are, indeed, both stupid and arrogant. Lets use some reason.

If God is helping God's anointed NFL disciple complete passes; then, presumably, God is harming the hapless saps who are playing defensive back. Thus, every play is presumably a morality contest in which each partcipant's moral virtue is clearly defined. Consequently, training, skill, diet, study all mean nothing, only how much, and how sincerely, we pray to the ' right' God matters.

Its stupid, because we all know the world doesn't work that way. Might is not right. OJ Simpson succeeded on a football field. So have multiple wife beaters, child abusers, self involved liars and greedy jerks. Are we now to think those achievements occured because the opposing teams failed to pray enough, didn't worship the right God, or were even worse people?

Its arrogant because the people who believe it generally have beliefs similar to God's anointed NFL disciple, and see it as validation that they have, indeed, picked the right beliefs.Thus they are morally superior to those who don't share their faith. Which is amusing because u wonder if they even bothered to really read their own bible instead of memorizing citations to mindlessly spout. One of the bible's clearest lessons is that bad things can happen to good people and worldly good fortune does not define one's standing with God. That is why the bible shows jesus blessing the poor, embracing the leper, consorting with prostitutes while reviling many rich people who were considered pillars of the community.

In biblical terms, the God's anointed NFL discipleites who see his success as validation are like the pharisees and rich people who thought their social success was proof they were better than the riviled members of jewish society.

Maybe God is trying to get you to stop taking football so seriously. Get up off of your couch, go outside, breathe some fresh air. Think about your place in the universe, the people you have loved and loved you, your family and your friends.

I've said this before, I've seen this. The 2001 Patriots were just like this. And each week everyone said "it ends this week" and people said things like "God must have wanted the Patriots to win" and nobody had a problem with it. Now im rooting hard for the Patriots. They are like the 1988 Niners, whose dynasty was getting dissed because they hadn't won a playoff game in a few years. This is big for the Patriots. But if they have to lose the entertainment factor of people losing their minds would help ease the pain.

I've said this before, I've seen this. The 2001 Patriots were just like this. And each week everyone said "it ends this week" and people said things like "God must have wanted the Patriots to win" and nobody had a problem with it. Now im rooting hard for the Patriots. They are like the 1988 Niners, whose dynasty was getting dissed because they hadn't won a playoff game in a few years. This is big for the Patriots. But if they have to lose the entertainment factor of people losing their minds would help ease the pain.

The 01 Patriots had a 1st round bye, won 6 straight to end that season, and had a dogfight against the high powered Rams in the regular season. This years Broncos ended the season by getting blown off the field by the Pats, looked awful against the Bills, and couldn't muster any offensive drives to produce points against the Chiefs. Every good offense has had there way with that Denver D. The 01 Pats were overlooked, but cmon man.

That will always be my favorite sports season by any team ever. They won a game at buffalo in OT when a fumble call was overturned because david pattens unconscience head was out of bounds while his foot was touching the football. The snow game. Bledsoe coming back at Pittsburgh.
