With Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow seeking divine intervention during his team’s 13-10 over time victory over Chicago, John McGrath of The News Tribune – a Chicago native – wonders if the man upstairs has an issue with his Bears.
McGrath: I’ve got no qualms about God’s newfangled interest in the Broncos. They make their home, after all, in “God’s Country,” representing a city whose mile-high elevation puts it closer to heaven than any other NFL market.
But it’s fair to wonder: What’s God’s beef with the Chicago Bears?
On an afternoon he looked less like a “Mile-High Messiah” than a poor man’s version of Charlie Whitehurst, Tebow doesn’t add to his legend if Marion Barber stays inbounds during the Bears’ last possession in the fourth quarter, or if the Chicago defense remembers that football is a contact sport, or if Barber holds onto the ball on a first-down scamper that should’ve put the Bears in position to kick the game-winning field goal in overtime.
