“10 So Joshua did as Moses told him, and fought with Amalek; and Moses, Aaron, and Hur went up to the top of the hill. 11 Whenever Moses held up his hand, Israel prevailed; and whenever he lowered his hand, Amalek prevailed. 12 But Moses’ hands grew weary; so they took a stone and put it under him, and he sat upon it, and Aaron and Hur held up his hands, one on one side, and the other on the other side; so his hands were steady until the going down of the sun. 13 And Joshua mowed down Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.”
Obviously, this verse could potentially have great meaning to a competitive athlete like Tim. It is especially relevant to an athlete like Tim who is about to move to a level of competition for which he is ill-suited. Yes, it’s true that Tim’s throwing style has problems; he brings the ball too low before throwing it and the result is a long wind-up that will give defenders more time to react. And given the size and speed of professional defensive players, and the fact that Tim runs like molasses, further limits his value to an NFL team.
But Tim’s intangibles, his leadership abilities and inspirational personality, have always been the main attraction. If he is not going to be out on the field, he could be trained and developed to be the guy who stands on the sideline holding up his hands like Moses and help his team prevail that way. And if he is not ready to take on that role right away, he could be one of the guys who stands on the sideline holding up the hands of the guy who holds up his hands.
This is worth at least a second-round draft pick, right?
