Tebow mixing strong beliefs with football

By Les Carpenter

The first round of the NFL draft comes Thursday evening and the most compelling prospect might not be selected until the second night. Still a debate rages about [Tim] Tebow never for any player before: about his game, about his life and about his religion. Last month a SI.com writer authored a personal blog post entitled “I Want Tim Tebow to Fail” and none of the story was about Tebow’s sidearm delivery or his still-developing footwork but rather his evangelical Christianity.

My comment: Isn’t it interesting that Tim Tebow draws as many visceral reactions as does Ben Roethlisberger? What a screwed-up world!
