in 2006 Tebow was considered 'not realy for college football' and was Chris Leak's backup. Everyone said 'he lacks the technique and mental discipline to be an effective QB at the college level'. By then end of that year, he had won his team the championship, went on to win more and got the Heismann.
They were wrong.
Then, they said 'okay, he won't even get drafted in the NFL. He would NEVER get selected in the first round'.
So, naturally, he gets selected in the first round.
Then they said ' okay, but he will never be a game changer. He will be backup for eternity, onlyu to be used in the Wildcat'.
He started playing and started winning.
They were wrong again.
Then, they said " okay, he is winning games in the NFL, but it's not him, it's the team. Look at how much he sucks throwing the ball. Against a 'good defense' he will definitely lose.'
Then, he threw ALL OVER the Steelers in a playoff game.
Now they are saying he wont even be in the league? It's positively laughable at this point.
Look, Im not overtly 'religious'. My hero is Penn Jillette and Christopher Hitchens. But at some point, I have to wonder why this guys gets so much heat. I understand he doesn't help himself in the off season going around to speak at religious things, but it's pretty apparent to me what the deal is.
Tim Tebow drives progressives/footballpuritans nuts. He is like a great big mirror, and they hate what they see.
He isn't a product of the failed education system. They try to portay him as a 'dummy'. Like this: http://www.palmbeachpost.com/news/sport ... c-t/nL5Kf/
"Tebow scored a 22 out of 50 on the Wonderlic test, an NFL source told the Post Wednesday. The score falls slightly below the average score
for an NFL quarterback, which is 24."
They mocked his ambition to get a degree in Youth Counseling, when his life's work was helping impoverished kids in the far east.
He is good looking and physically fit. He doesn't swear, he doesn't date sluts, hell for all I know he probably doesn't eat meat and sh*ts crucifixes.
In the end, he continually proves them wrong,wrong wrong. And they hate him for it, because he exposes all thier own insecurities and flaws. They cannot wait fot him to f*ckup ONE TIME, to let down that 'Holy Shield', so they can all laugh and point and say 'A Ha! SEE!? He is a FRAUD!' Jeff Garcia? Everytime he looks at Time Tebow he blushes inside because he knows HE is the one in the ski mask, behind the bathrooms at the truck stop.
they will be wrong again.
I think he would be an excellent addition to the Falcons, honestly
. I argued earlier that we didn't need to carry a '3rd' QB, and I would rather have a utility guy. Are you kidding me? They are saying he wont even be in the league! You mean to tell me you wouldn't part with a 7th round pick for this guy? You could pretty much cut Brady Ewing right now. Hey Arthur: want to see people actually GO to preseason games? Put Tebow in there. BOOM, you immediately sold alot more seats. This guy can singlehandedly run Blank's Philanthropy, at a time when he needs good PR being seen as an evil owner forcing his will on the city.
I would make the argument one of the teams Tebow should go to is us. There would be no 'QB controversy' and Matt Ryan is not going to be threatened, especially after inking his new deal. And if Ryan does go dow, at least it will be entertaining, and not in the Joey Harrington way.
Now I will sit back and wait for someone to call me a holynuthuggher. Or that I'm crazy, and TD wouldn't even consider it...But I would do it in a flash.
