Hines Ward Black-and-Gold No More? Steelers to Part Ways With Legendary Receiver

HinesIt’s an extremely sad day for Steelers Nation as it appears that the Steelers are planning to release its franchise leader Hines Ward.

The former DWTS contestant will be released from his contract before the 2012 NFL calendar year.

The four-time pro bowl selection and MVP of the 2006 Super Bowl will finish his career with a pretty impressive team record of 1,000 catches, 12,083 yards and 85 receiving touchdowns. Hines was clearly an essential part of the team and a fan fave.

Hines who was hoping to end his career as a Steeler might have to pick up his career else where. The question is who will he go to? And who will be the first to grab him?

Where ever he goes, he will be sure to help get that team to the top and maybe even to the Super Bowl.

John 3:16 and Tim Tebow: How Beating the Steelers in OT was Tebow’s and God’s Plan All Along

Tebowmania is back…and so is Jesus this Monday morning.

Well technically for all of us, depending on your beliefs of course, Jesus is with us every morning.  But with Tim Tebow and the Broncos knocking off the Pittsburgh Steelers last night, in a game where they were a 10 point underdog, and in which Tebow played out of his mind and shredded Pittsburgh’s D to the tune of 316 yards, even non-believers are beginning to take notice of Tebow’s feats.

Did Tebow really throw for 316 yards on the dime?  As in John 3:16, which coincidentally happens to be Tebow’s and millions of other Christians favorite Bible verse of all time?

The Bible verse reads:

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

We already know that Tim Tebow is a devout Christian and he uses his stage, with him being in the NFL to further teach and spread God’s message of love.  And what better way for him to do so then to throw for 316 yards against a team he wasn’t supposed to beat.  And then to have people break the number of yards thrown and turn it into a Bible verse that’s spreading around the internet like a wildfire in California is just the icing on the cake for Tebow.

What makes this story even more miraculous is that none of this would’ve happened if the Broncos wouldn’t have scored on the first play in overtime, which was an 80 yard strike to Demaryius Thomas.  How many times have you seen someone score on the first play in overtime?  If the Steelers would’ve made the tackle, chances are that the Broncos would’ve run on at least a couple of more plays and thus the yards Tebow needed to reach 316 wouldn’t have been there.  This is as picture perfect as it gets.

So did Tebow plan this all out?  Of course not.  This is just one of those things where either it’s a coincidence or someone higher is really reaching out to us to let us know more than ever that he exists.  Yes, Tebow won the game last night, but I guarantee you this and this post is evidence that Tim Tebow is going to win way more off the field than he ever could on it, and God most likely will see to that.

Tim Tebow Does it Again: The Denver Broncos Defeats Pittsburgh Steelers on First Play in Overtime

In the NFL Playoffs, you have to expect the unexpected. Every year there’s at least one team winning a game or two that you thought had no chance of winning.

Last year it was the Seattle Seahawks defeating the New Orleans Saints in the first round. The year before it was the New York Jets beating San Diego. This year it’s Tim Tebow’s Denver Broncos knocking off last year’s AFC champs the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Yes, Tim Tebow has become a household name by delivering his late game heroics throughout the season, but the Denver Broncos limped into the playoffs on a 3 game losing streak, and let’s not forget that this was Tim Tebow’s first playoff game…EVER!

As a Pittsburgh Steelers fan, it’s hurting me sooooooo much right now for me to even write this post but I have a feeling that a lot of people are looking to chime in on this story, and rightfully so.  I have a duty to put this up.

Tim Tebow finished with 316 yards passing, with Demaryius Thomas accounting for 204 of those yards on just 4 catches.  The Broncos are heading to New England for a second-round game against the top-seeded Patriots on Saturday night.

The Denevr Broncos led 20-6 going into halftime but the Steelers battled back and tied it on a pass from Big Ben to Jericho Cotchery with 3:48 left on the clock in regulation.  The Steelers D played their part on the next series and forced Denver to punt.  And things looked good for the Steelers as they marched the ball down to Denver’s 45 yard line, which they only needed about 10 yards to get into field goal range.

A sack, fumble, and a penalty pushed the Steelers back and into overtime.  Denver won the toss and elected to receive.  And with the new playoff overtime rules in effect, that meant that they would have to score 6 points to not give the Steelers a chance to come back and win the game.

But it didn’t even matter because this happened…
