I Love Tim Tebow

It's a shame that Tim Tebow doesn't have a football contract. But, I am sure glad he is gaining some celebrity status.

Love Me Some Tebow

I love Tim Tebow…in that straight guy kind of sense. He is an awesome ambassador for Jesus Christ. You may remember in college and NFL days, he was very vocal in his faith and the way he prayed on the sidelines became known as ‘Tebowing’. He was originally drafted by the Denver Broncos in 2010 as a first round draft pick. I live in Colorado and it was the leading news story for weeks.

The Bronco’s were having a horrible start to their 2011 year and about the 6th game made Tebow the starting quarterback. But, then the Bronco’s decided to go with Peyton Manning and traded Tebow to the New York Jets (who play in New Jersey…figure that out). In 2013, the Jets released Tebow and he has been a free agent ever since.

Come on folks…he is a Heisman Trophy winner. He actually was the first college sophomore to ever win the coveted trophy. In my opinion, the reason he doesn’t have a contract has more to do with his outspoken faith than it does his football skills. In today’s world of political correct paranoia, I don’t think NFL teams want to have the type of attention that Tebow brings regarding his faith.

But, I was thrilled to see Tebow on the T-Mobile commercials during the 2014 Super Bowl. In fact, Tebow outshined the Denver Broncos who demonstrated they deserve the title they now hold of most Super Bowl losses of any team in the National Football League. I am so glad Tim Tebow is getting some recognition through commercials and his newly accepted job of being a sports commentator with the ESPN sports network. Keep the faith Tim…that’s the most important.
