“The Quarterback Question”
By Ed Young
September 13, 2015
On the field of life, we all want to “win”. We want to get the most out of the time we are giving on the clock. God wants the same thing for us. But it doesn’t happen if we don’t have the right players in place.
In this message, Pastor Ed Young challenges us to all as The Quarterback Question. Because when we look at who is really calling the plays of our lives and hand control over to Jesus, we discover the only game plan to true victory.
Ed: Hey, it’s great to have with us Tony Romo in this series Quarterback. The man needs no introduction. He’s the man of the hour, too sweet to be sour, the tower of Cowboy power. You know where I got that line from? Professional wrestler, Dusty Rhodes. You remember him?
Tony: I do. I remember I grew up watching Hulk Hogan, Wrestle Mania 3, I think that was the Pontiac Silverdome. But I don't know much about it.
Ed: You know what, Tony? I love wrestling. I love the old school better. I don't know as much about the new school but the old school…
Tony: I would say I went to about Wrestle Mania 7-ish. I remember 6, we had the ultimate war and Hulk Hogan and then I started to fade after that a little bit.
Ed: Those guys are great athletes.
Tony: What they do, they’re like football players who have to get up on a rope and jump sometimes.
Ed: It’s crazy. Well, Tony, you quarterback America’s team. Talk to me about leadership. When I say that word what comes to mind?
Tony: Well, I think there are a few things. 1, I felt like there are many forms of leadership that we all have. I think ultimately you have to be yourself but ultimately the thing that everyone looks to since I’ve been in the NFL at any point is someone who does it the right way day in and day out. That’s probably the #1 quality that someone has. And then on top of that, your example that you set and the approach that you take, people are watching. You know, when you just do something small. Other people weirdly will not necessarily judge but they will absolutely be in a position to say, man, I want to be like that. And I think that’s the #1 way you get to be in the position you’re at is just doing things the right way over and over again.

Every sports team has them. They show up to every game, cheer every play, don the uniforms, and defend their teams with passion. They are the real fans. But fandom isn’t something reserved just for the sports world.
In this message, Pastor Ed Young parallels our response to God with the kind response avid fans have for their teams. Because when it comes to excitement and passion for life, there’s no greater place to display it than the only thing Jesus ever built – the local church!
Ed: I want to welcome Troy Aikman, the man of the hour, too sweet to be sour, the tower of football power. Troy, good to see you again.
Troy: Good to see you.
Ed: Troy, I’ve known you since like the Korean War.
Troy: It’s been a long time, a long time.
Ed: Troy, when did you know, like as a kid, dang! I’m an awesome athlete! I mean not that you… you know… because you’re a very humble guy but when did you know, man, I’m pretty good.
Troy: You know, I picked it up pretty quickly. I mean right from the very beginning I started playing organized sports when I was about 7 years old and it just kinda came naturally to me. I worked at it but it also was very natural. I had good hand-eye coordination. I wasn’t the fastest guy but I had relatively good quickness at that age. And I could shoot a basketball.
Ed: I was blown away. I was playing basketball with this guy and I was like, I couldn’t believe how good a basketball player you were… you are. You remember that game we played back in the day? You don’t remember that?
Troy: I do. I was a good shooter.
Ed: Yeah, you were rebounding, passing, shooting, defense.
Troy: I was one of those. And I probably enjoyed basketball more than the other sports that I played because it was the one that I was the least good at. Even though I was decent I also knew it was the one I wasn’t going to try to further. I knew I was not going to go on and play college basketball. So I tended, then, to not put as much pressure on myself when I was growing up playing basketball, and probably had more fun as a result of that playing.

Every NFL offense starts their attack in the same place – the huddle. It is the place where assignments are given, plays are communicated, and vision is cast for what is about to happen on the field. But it’s not where the action is.
In this message, Pastor Ed Young shows us how breaking free from the huddle is crucial when it comes to game time. He challenges with Jesus’ final words on earth, and then reminds us that Jesus told us to break away from the huddle in order to get into HIS game!
Ed: We’re here with the man of the hour, too sweet to be sour, the tower of Dolphins’ power, Ryan Tannehill. Ryan, great to have you here, man!
Ryan: Thanks, Ed. Thanks for having me.
Ed: Ryan, you’re a big guy, you’re a quarterback! Man, this guy’s like, what are you 6’5”?
Ed: And what do you weigh?
Ed: Are your parents big, too?
Ryan: My dad’s big. He’s about 6’3, 205. My mom’s 5’10”.
Ed: Were they athletic?
Ryan: Yeah, my dad played college football and my mom played college basketball.
Ed: So Ryan, when did you know you were good? When did you know you were a great athlete.
Ryan: I don't know. I never really ever said, “Oh, I’m good.” I think that I grew up around the game. I grew up around sports. My parents were both involved in sports. They were coaches growing up so I was always around some sort of sporting activity. I dreamed of playing in the NFL since I was a little kid, from as far back as I can remember. I wanted to be a quarterback in the NFL and just kept chasing that dream, working toward it each and every day. And God blessed me and here I am.

“2…4…6…8!” In our sports-crazed culture, cheers are a part of the routine. From pee-wee football to the NFL, cheers are designed to motivate and encourage. But it’s not just the sports world that needs cheers. They should be part of the church culture as well.
Like any other team, the church needs encouragement and motivation. We need something to bring us together as we continue to play the game God has designed for us. In this message, Ed Young teaches us some of those church cheers. And we see that as we cheer for the church, we also discover that all of heaven is cheering along with us.
Once I heard my Grandma say,
the Laurel team is coming this-a-way.
With a vevo, with a vivo.
With a vevo, vivo, vumbo and
a rip tail, rat-tail, sitting on a cat tail,
Bump bump bump!
What’s the matter with that team that they can’t see that they can’t play as well as we.
Bump bump BUMP!
ILLUS: I spent my summers in Laurel, Mississippi. Hot, humid Laurel, Mississippi. I have fond memories of playing football in the front lawn of my grandparents’ house and my grandmother, who had a booming voice like I do would do that cheer over and over again. We said, “Grandmother! Do the cheer! Do the cheer!”
“Once I heard my grandma say…” and she would do it. And I remember when I heard that cheer it would make me run faster, jump higher, play harder. I loved the cheer. I’d have to confess to you, in fact I’m going to put it out on the table, I fell in love with cheers as a kid. And to show you the power of cheers right before my grandmother passed away she could barely speak. She could recite the 23rd Psalm and that cheer that I just gave to you. Right before she died we would go,
Life has been compared to so many things, but one of the most prolific comparisons is to a game. It could even been said that it’s a game that plays itself out on the grid iron. Like every football game, life has a specific game plan we need to follow, plays we need to run, and a quarterback we need to follow.
What happens when Pastor Ed Young teams up with a champion, a warrior, and a rising star? In this series by Pastor Ed Young sits down one-on-one with some of the biggest quarterbacks in the NFL and helps us discover how to become the playmakers God created us to be!
