Tebow’s already beaten us in the praying game.

The scripture game? We’ll give him that too.

Coach,

Maybe this is superstitious of me, but in light of the eerie fact that Tebow’s numbers vs. the Steelers evoked his favorite Biblical passage (316 yards: John 3:16), I’m wondering whether we should fight fire with fire and start praying hysterically on the sidelines after every play. Seems like at the very least Brady needs to be more overtly religious in the huddle — maybe he should say grace or burn offerings or something. I know we beat Denver once but it won’t be so easy now that Tebow is using the Bible as his playbook.

Worried,

Franz

From the Playbook:

Thanks for the tip, Franz, but I don’t see the upside of starting a Holy War with Tebow. It is what it is: he’s got the edge on us in the praying game and that’s not going to change between now and gametime. So our best shot is to beat him in other aspects of the game — ones that actually involve football. That’s why I’ve spent the last week focusing on technique and execution instead of scripture and the Ten Commandments — on the off chance that Christianity has fuck-all to do with winning football games.
