Does Chuck Norris wear Tim Tebow pajamas?

It seems that Norris thinks Tebow may be the Superman of the NFL. In a column penned on Newsbusters.org, Norris makes his case for why he thinks Tebow could be a superstar.

“I have been following Tim since he became a QB for the University of Florida Gators,” Norris wrote, “and I never have seen a more determined or inspiring athlete to play the game of football.”

Fair enough, determination and inspirational qualities are admirable traits, but what concrete skills does Tebow posses to prove that he is capable of becoming a legend?

“I’ve heard the critics say Tebow has poor technical skills, but the truth is that Tim is a natural leader, an amazingly gifted football player, an inspiration to his team and the possessor of intense determination and strategy to bring any team to victory — no matter what the odds,” according to Norris.

Oh, okay. So, no real, tangible skills.

Tebow ran for just 102 yards last season, completed 6 of 8 passes for 39 yards and scored zero touchdowns after being acquired by the New York Jets. While with Denver in 2011, Tebow was able to mount multiple fourth-quarter comebacks and tallied four overtime victories, but it wasn’t enough to propel the Broncos past the New England Patriots in the 2012 AFC playoffs.

Tebow’s ability to rise to the occasion in Denver leads Norris to claim Tebow as the NFL’s “ultimate clutch player.” And the team that Norris feels could most benefit from Tebow’s clutch services is the Jacksonville Jaguars.

“To put it simply, it’s because Tim could help turn that mediocre team into a championship one,” Norris said. “Tebow works miracles on the field, and his inclusion would embolden the spirit of the Jaguars’ players and fans.”

Norris goes on to say, ”Shad Khan, who is the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars, David Caldwell, who is the team’s general manager, and coach Gus Bradley should give the preceding some serious thought. Whatever you would pay Tebow would be recouped tenfold by the increase in attendance and the fan base. With Tim as the QB for the Jacksonville Jaguars, the team would add thousands (if not tens of thousands) of additional fans to the stadium, including me — even though I don’t live in Florida!”
