It’s a bird.  It’s a plane.  It’s Tim Tebow?  Yet again NFL headlines are being dominated by the one and only Tim Tebow.  The Tebow phenomenon has become one of the most unexplainable storylines in all of sports.  Nobody, including myself, believe this guy has any business being a starting quarterback in the National Football League.  Yet he keeps winning.

That is all Tim Tebow does.  He wins.  Just the way he does it, absolutely blows your mind.  Tim Tebow has become the LeBron James of the NFL.  He is rapidly becoming the most well-known figure in the sport.  Though he constantly dominates the tabloids in a similar fashion to the King, the Gator God is by no means one of the game’s elite players.  He by no means is even an above average player.

I will admit that I have never been the biggest Tim Tebow fan.  This in large part was because he laid one of the most vicious beatings I have ever witnessed in person on my favorite college football team a couple of years back in the Sugar Bowl. Tim Tebow seems to be a great person.  Or at least from what I can tell.  He appears genuine, philanthropic, intelligent, and just an all around awesome guy.  And these are all important qualities.  It is good to know that Tim Tebow is a great person.  But none of that directly translates towards being a good quarterback in the NFL.

Words that have been used while discussing Tim Tebow today from various media forums:  “Awful, worse, half back, tight end, and project.” Continue reading
