I know Kim Jong-il, Vaclav Havel, and Christopher Hitchens have all died, but I can’t get off this anti-Tebow thing. While on the treadmill this morning, I saw this discussion point on the NFL Network after the Broncos lost to the Patriots: “Tebow Finally Exposed?”
Let’s see: He passed for nearly 200 yards, ran for nearly a hundred, scored two touchdowns, and didn’t throw a pick–and this is what they want to talk about? No, Tebow wasn’t perfect. He fumbled at a key point in the game and needlessly took a big sack, and it’s clear the offense isn’t ready to trade points with Tom Brady. But come on–would we be asking this question of Cam Newton or any other rookie quarterback (and Tebow is basically still a rookie) after a loss? Most of these critics are simply waiting (and hoping) for Tebow to fail.
I was reassured that Tebow is going to be a force in the league and will only get better. If I were on another team, I wouldn’t want to play him. He’s a load.
