Tim Tebow’s fight breaking up powers are apparently a wonder to behold. If the fighting Eagles and Ravens were the Red Sea, then it could be said Tebow waded in there and parted them just like that. At least, that’s how some sports writers are describing the incident.
In a related report by the Inquisitr, now that Tim Tebow is with the Philadelphia Eagles, some critics have begun to criticize Tebow on his new and improved throwing arm. But others argue that Tebow will best be positioned as a running quarterback.
During a NFL practice involving the Philadelphia Eagles and Baltimore Ravens, Bleacher Report’s NFL writer Michael Tanier reported that Tim Tebow’s fight-breaking skills were put to the test.
4th stringer fight on the far field. But @TimTebow wades in and they part like the Red Sea.

None of the reports say who started the fight, or who from the Eagles and Ravens were involved. Even Tanier admitted, “I had a much better view of the radio guy on radio guy #Eagles sideline fight than the scuffle on the far field.”
Tebow is breaking up a bit of a scrap in the endzone. Couldn’t tell who. #Eagles

Some on Twitter joked that Tebow then turned water into Gatorade.

While Tim Tebow’s fight-breaking skills are new, what is not new is his strong stand as a Christian believer. Tebow became well known for humbly giving all praise to his team, wearing the Bible verse John 3:16 on his face, and for his “tebowing” to praise God for any victory, even if small. Tebow has written books on the subject, loves to serve at churches, and his foundation offers support to many around the globe. Funnily enough, when Tebow faced the Steelers in 2011, the Nielsen rating of 31.6 and Tebow’s passing yards (316) and yards per completion (31.6) evoked the Bible’s John 3:16.
Unfortunately, this strong stance as a Christian came at a cost. Two years ago, Michael Silver wondered aloud if Tebow’s Christian beliefs led to him being blackballed.
“Against all odds, I’m starting to wonder whether the man who helped the Denver Broncos become one of the league’s most stunning success stories in 2011 is getting unjustly blackballed,” Silver said at the time.
Although Tim Tebow’s NFL career has been rough, he has long said he will rely on God for his future.
“I don’t know what my future holds, but I know who (God) holds my future. And that gives you peace to just continue to work. And you go after what you heart desires. And when you do that, you don’t have any regrets. I think it’s the best way to live life.”
