Zing Of The Year: Willis McGahee Fires Back At Ravens Fan Who Makes Fun Of Tim Tebow

As Broncos running back and Pro-Bowler Willis McGahee signed autographs for fans at Thursday’s Pro Bowl practice at Hickam Air Force Base in Honolulu, he was confronted by a hotshot Ravens fan who thought he would make fun of McGahee’s quarterback.

Some quick context: the up-and-down play of McGahee’s quarterback, Tim Tebow, had been this season’s most controversial subplot. The Ravens, meanwhile, were bounced from the playoffs after their kicker, Billy Cundiff, missed a last second chip-shot field goal against the Patriots.

So, back to Thursday.

“If you get a better quarterback you’d beat more people,” the man in the Ravens jersey, who surely thought he’d gotten one over on a Pro Bowler, said to McGahee.

McGahee was a good sport and all, but didn’t miss a beat.

“That’s not nice. That’s like saying if you had a better kicker, you’d have won.”

Feel. The. Burn.

    I’m a Ravens fan and that was a dumb and unnecessary thing for that dude to say to Willis McGahee. Good come back by Willis. Don’t act like a douchenozzle when you’re wearing your colors.

    If McGahee had not got hurt in national title game from that cheap shot from Ohio  State he would have been one of the great backs of all times double knee surgery from that hit 2 year to be able to play again my hat goes off to a man that haS THAT KIND OF HEART!

     What Tebow Knows  à Why does he and others ignore facts?  Because he and others  –  OUT OF HATE attack -> Tim Tebow – because …  they have ANOTHER  SPIRITUAL  FATHER !
    But – so were many of us – before we accepted Christ’s Gift of Salvation -  I pray that many of  they  also- will check out  John 3:16 – the TRUTH can set them free also.
     But in the mean time to reinforce Tim and where he is at – trying to be “LIGHT” in a DARK World>
    The Virtue of Having Enemies
    by Henry Morris, Ph.D.
    “Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you! for so did their fathers to the false prophets.” (Luke 6:26)
    It is no compliment to say about a Christian that he has no enemies, for that is the same as saying he has accomplished nothing. The apostle Paul had many bitter enemies, and they finally got him executed. In fact, almost all of the great heroes of the faith, through all the centuries since Satan gained his victory over Adam and Eve, have had to overcome bitter opposition from that wicked one.
    So instead of resenting our enemies, we should thank God for them, for they enable us to become more like our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ! Only through such experiences can we learn what it means to say, with Paul: “I am crucified with Christ” (Galatians 2:20). Only if we have enemies can we learn to obey Christ’s difficult command to “love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you” (Matthew 5:44).
    The Lord Jesus easily could have called on twelve legions of angels to rout His enemies (Matthew 26:53). Instead, He submitted to their vicious insults and cruel tortures, even praying in His agony on the cross, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34). The enemies of Christ killed Him, but had they not done so, He would not have died for our sins, and we would be lost eternally. This is a mystery to ponder, and difficult to comprehend, yet, as the Bible promises, “Surely the wrath of man shall praise thee” (Psalm 76:10).
    The enmity of men can thus be a channel of divine grace to the believer, for “tribulation worketh patience” (Romans 5:3), and “our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory” (2 Corinthians 4:17). HMM

    This is the “Zinger” of the year???  Yawn.

  • Evilwayz1017

    We talking about  was it  a diss, or was two guys jaw jackin and having fun, or was disrespectful to say that and wearing the team colors? I don’t know what all of that has to do with anytihng we are talkin about.

  • CharleyN

    Ouch! So true!

  • Guitar214mom

    Willis was great, the guy that said that was a jerk. I’m sure it was just a spontaneous remark from Willis that he didn’t mean because he was caught off guard by the idiot.

    I thought it was pretty good, based on how quick he came back.

    I realize fan was just jaw jacking, but with disrespect the ravens players spout every chance they get it’s no wonder the fans talk ridiculus smack. Terrill Suggs comment about the ravens being real men that don’t need god on thier sidelines to win. That they will kick your a– without god’s help, shows what low class thug losers the ravens are. It was sweet as condiffs kick took a hard left like it was pushed with an invisible force ( GOD ) to see Suggs exclaim ” oh my god “. It is easy to diss him, until you need him. Talk about crappy QB’s flacco would be doomed if it wasnt for all the tools the raven posess. It was great to see broncos supporting Tebow, he definitely supports his team any chance he gets.

  • jim

    i still hate mike doss (i think that was his name) for that hit

  • jim

    i love tebow and the broncos but if I have to put up with annoying preachers on sports sights, i might be rooting for a new QB.  jk about that last part, but please NO PREACHING!!

  • jim

    are you allen iverson?

    Willis loves having a QB who can’t throw more carries for him. Thats all Willis cares about more carries equals more money to pay for child support payments.

  • Paul Edward

    I take it the person making the comment didn’t watch many of our games this season. I am not so blinded by Tebow as the think he is some magical QB. Ortons numbers were much bertter except for the won that can move yoiu forward. The last time the Broncos even made the playoffs let alone win a game was with Jake Plummer (who actually had some years with very good statistics. THe win means more than making the playoffs as the AFC is the worst division in the NFL. an 8-8 team should not be in the playoofs let alone being the fourth seed. The reason the Broncos got a spark of life after a 1-4 start was a change in leadership. Tim believed in his teammates (and yes certainly that carpenter  he goes on about) Perhapos more important is the team believed in him as a leader and themselves as a team to play till it was over never giving up hope.  I can’t blame Kyle for having a lot of trouble in a leadership role. Denver did not exactly embrace the guy. How hard are you going to play for a city that is calling for your head.  Go look up Elways sophomore numbers they are not as good as people remember. Tebow and the rest of the Broncos won when thyye defense kept them in the game and the O made like they were plying the practice squad in the 2 minute drill. Talent means less whn Endurance and Drive give you a huge momentum shift t


    americaneaglecorp, no doub’t a loser steelers fan,  WHO’S TEAM GOT SMACKED AND IS CRYING OH YEA BABY TWICE
