Steelers fans should be Tebow fans today

So who should Steelers fans root for in today's showdown between Team Evil and Team Tebow?

Do we actually want a Patriots win, which would decrease the Steelers' chances of running into Tebowmania in the playoffs?

Or do we want a Broncos' win, which would put them in a good position to win the AFC West?

I think Steelers fans should take a knee and pray.

Even if the Steelers somehow win the AFC North, they still need one more loss out of the Patriots or Texans to get a first-round bye in the playoffs.

The Steelers would lose a three-way tie with the Patriots and Texans.

Today's game in Denver is probably the Steelers' best hope for a Patriots or Texans loss for the rest of the season.

The Patriots host the Dolphins and Bills in the final two weeks of the season. The Texans host Carolina today, are at Indianapolis next week and home to Tennessee in Week 17.

Even if the Broncos win today, the Steelers still need to win out and get a Ravens loss to earn a first-round bye.

But if God really is on Tebow's side, He's also on the Steelers' side on this Sunday.

Week 13: Steelers 35, Bengals 7

I'm on Bleacher Report Now

If you're wondering where my column on the Steelers' win over the Bengals is, it's on Bleacher Report, which is probably where my game articles will be going forward.

I still plan to keep Respect the Towel up and running. Every once in a while I might have some esoteric, quirky thoughts rattling around my head that wouldn't cut it on Bleacher Report. No swearing on Bleacher Report, either, so I'll need Respect the Towel as an outlet for some of my adult language.

Below is the link to this week's article. Thank you for your support, and go Steelers.
