With Tim Tebow comes a media circus. We have all learned that over the past couple of seasons. The only things that are guaranteed in life now that we have hit the 21st century are death, taxes, and Tebowmania. While he is considered to be a fantastic teammate and one of the hardest workers in the league, Tebow can also be a distraction. Between dating rumors and talk about religion, the focus isn’t always exclusively on football when Tebow is involved. One of his former teammates, Eric Decker, reminded us of that on Friday when asked if it was a relief that the media circus is out of town. “Tebowmania — yeah, obviously he’s earned the right to have conversations about him,” Decker said during an interview with 102.3 The Ticket in Denver. “I guess at the same time, to be honest with you it is nice just to kind of focus back on football, and we talk football and there’s not — there’s still a lot of excitement here with the football. I mean, he is a great teammate. I respect him greatly. But again, like you were saying, a lot of the focus right now is on football, is really talking about how we’re gonna form this team to win some ball games next year.” Decker has had nothing but great things to say about Tebow in the past, and this isn’t exactly a change from that. It does, however, give us some serious perspective as to just how crazy things can be with Tebow around. As you may remember, the Broncos brought in another high-profile quarterback just before shipping Tebow out. Peyton Manning is a future Hall of Famer who played with one team his entire career prior to joining the Broncos. For Decker to say the team is relieved to no longer have to deal with the media circus despite the fact that one of the biggest NFL names of all time has come to Denver says a lot. Tebowmania truly is a one-of-a-kind beast. Photo credit: Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE
