Dawkins says Tebow “laid hands” on injured neck

From time to time, some of you have joked that Jets quarterback Tim Tebow should try to heal injured players and/or opponents.

It’s time to stop joking.

Safety Brian Dawkins, who played for the Broncos during the two years of the Colorado version of Tebowmania, told Alex Marvez and Jim Miller of SiriusXM NFL Radio that Tebow tried to heal Dawkins’ injured neck last season.

“In our Bible study sessions when my neck was pretty bad and I’m hurting, [Tebow] along with our chaplain and [Broncos director of player development] Jerry Butler laid hands and prayed on me pretty good,” Dawkins said. “They brought snot and tears to my eyes and all that type of good stuff with prayer.”

We present this information without opinion or comment. Because we suspect that at least 100 of you, maybe a lot more, will have something to say in the comments

If you're in to it sounds fine. The mind is incredibly powerful in controlling the healing of the body - whether you want to call something like this a miracle or placebo effect doesn't really make a difference.

nothing wierd about it...

this is typical for many Christian churches...

some members in a church along with the head of the church will collectively lay their hands on an individual seeking prayer and then pray for healing...


this is a non story...

All this article is saying is that they prayed for the neck to heal while putting their hands on the injury. They were not praying for a miracle or anything.

I can see it already, this is going to be taken completely out of context.

Congrats on more BS.

2) Catholicism actually has a lower rate of instances of child abuse perpetrated by members of the clergy than most other major religions. It was just publicized because, you know, they institutionalized it.

It's just the real reason, a strong religious belief and against abortion, for the constant Tebow bashing, mocking, and hoping he'd fail by some. But that doesn't sound so tolerant, especially when they are the type to proclaim to be the most tolerant around, so better to hide behind the "Teboner" fans, all 4 of them, instead for their hate. For a guy who works hard, gives credit to his teammates and coaches, on of he more humble guys around, and never a problem off the field, to supposedly create so much venom all because of just a few fans is so ridiculous it is beyond any kind of semblance and truth. Those that decided they needed to be that way with Tebow know damn well why they did so and it had little to do with a few fans on a football forum. Besides, that reason sounds just as dumb anyway.

It's because of Tebow's 'fans' that he can't stay. That, and there is no way his representitives would allow it. He's on his way to a bigger market where he can better advance his agenda, and likely be starting by week three because his 'fans' will raise such a ruckuss, put up billboards, whatever. He's way too much of a distraction to allow a serious football program to just play.
