Tim Tebow Could Be Angling For Stone Cold Steve Austin's "3:16"

Tim Tebow's John 3:16 became a big sensation after last weekend's Denver Broncos victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers since the quarterback threw for 316 yards, averaged 31.6 yards per completion, saw TV ratings for the game arrive at 31.6 and witnessed Ben Roethlisberger thrown an interception on 3rd-and-16.

But will we have a "Tebow 3:16" begin on Sunday. Former WWE superstar Stone Cold Steve Austin is more than willing to let Tebow have 3:16 should the quarterback have another game like last week's:

I’m no football analyst or a real religious person, but I think he’s a great role model for young kids and I wish him the best. So yeah, if he can throw for another 316 yards and beat the New England Patriots, the "3:16" is all his.

Austin, if one knows mid to late 1990s and early 2000s wrestling, was famous for his trademark catchphrase: "Austin 3:16 says I just whooped your ass!" It was usually the result of the Stone Cold Stunner.

If Tebow does beat the Patriots on Saturday night, does that mean we'll have "Tebow 3:16 says I just whooped your behind"? Yes, we know Tebow would change Stone Cold's phrasing to something like that.
