Despite being named Forbes’ most influential athlete, Tim Tebow remains unemployed with the NFL after being cut by the New York Jets. Before being traded to New York, Tebow lead the Denver Broncos to comebacks of biblical proportions against against San Diego, Chicago, and Minnesota. He orchestrated the Miami Miracle, coming back from a 15-point lead late in the 4th quarter to send the game to OT. The Broncos won the game after the Dolphins inexplicably fumbled the ball on their 2nd possession of OT and Denver capitalized four plays later with the game winning field goal. The Broncos miraculously made it to the playoffs as a wild card with their 8-8 record to play the #5 seed Pittsburgh Steelers. If you don’t remember, the game went into overtime and the Broncos won the coin toss. On the first play, Tebow launched an 80-yard pass to Demaryius Thomas for the win. While his consistency as a passer is questioned, and while most coaches don’t want him to play quarterback, Tim Tebow just flat out wins. Not only is he arguably the most decorated college football player in this era, he won 2 national titles, and a Heisman Trophy. With all of those accolades, it’s hard to imagine why a guy like that doesn’t have a job playing football. Besides God himself, there may be another super force on the side of Tim Tebow. The legendary Chuck Norris has chimed in saying he wants Tebow to play in Jacksonville. Norris believes Tebow can turn the Jaguars from mediocre, to a championship winning organization. Here’s Norris’ comments: 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. One can improve technique, but leadership is innate. That is why I believe that Tebow could be a superstar and legend in the NFL. Apparently, this adoration from Norris comes from the fact he sees some of himself inside Tim Tebow. No, really..Chuck Norris just put Tim Tebow on the same level as himself. Tebow is a player who rises to the occasion and delivers big in critical moments. He reminds me of myself when I used to compete in martial arts. I would spar with my black belts in class, and sometimes they would outscore me. Yet in the tournaments, I would defeat them. My students used to ask me, “Why is it that we can contend equally against you in class but can’t beat you in the tournaments?” My answer was always the same: “When it counts, I rise to the occasion.” To avoid a roundhouse kick to the chops, I would probably listen to Chuck Norris under most circumstances. Even at 73 years old, I know he could leave me clinging to my life if I decided to double-cross the infamous Walker Texas Ranger. The speculation will continue whether Tebow will actually make a return to the NFL. Until then, he may have the most convincing argument on his side in the legendary Chuck Norris.
