Tim Tebow....

...has driven his detractors over the cliff of sanity, or rather they have chosen to run off that cliff like lemmings rather than admit that he was victorious.
The same group that cheered Sammy Sosa who may a sign to God after every homer in his steroid-enhanced home-run battle with Mark McGwire is now angered by Tim Tebow for thanking God for his health and well-being.... Tim Tebow’s detractors remind me of the people who hate Sarah Palin because that was the in thing to do in 2008. I like how he answers the critics: on the football field. No need to say anything. Just win, baby. -- Don Surber

Your Say

When Tebow loses I'll respect and admire him as a person and a football player as much as I do now.

I just like the kid.

Perspective; great QB's throw interceptions, fumble and lose. He's just starting and he's made lots of mistakes, but he's doing just fine.

I haven't liked football since I was a seven year old sneaking sips of my dad's beers while watching the Chiefs. I could be persuaded to like it again (without the beer). Good on Tim Tebow.

How could you not like a guy who takes the high road,and has every Bronco playing above his head.

Pec, yours is a narrow road. Now football without the Chiefs, that's something to think about.

TT has brought the game back to its roots. The masculine virtues are upheld with reverence to God, and loyalty to others. He's Billy Graham with a football, Gayle Sayers with an arm.

Football without the Chiefs? A pretty good idea. That would mean I can go home and eat out with my Pa and not have to put up with a buncha yellow and red painted drunken white boys from Olathe making noise while we try to eat our kobe burgers.

It is amazing the amount of "controversy" allegedly provoked by Tebow though his faith. I saw none professed by the players themselves, who are in the same foxhole and seem to like his ways. I'd say this all is an exact projection of the sportswriters. Freedom from religion--it's in the Constitution. Someplace.

The pseudo journalists just trying to prove their creds.
