Love him or hate him, you have to have an opinion about Tim Tebow.
I love him. I know, I know…I can hear you groan out loud.
I don’t want to hear about how he can never be a quarterback in this league or how he throws balls in the dirt to wide open receivers in the flats.
I don’t know If Tebow can make it as a quarterback in the NFL, but I cannot and will not give up on him.
DJ Khaled says it best… “All I do is win, win, win.” Tebow doesn’t do it conventionally, and it can be downright ugly sometimes, but he gets the job done.
Who thought the Broncos would actually be in the hunt in the AFC West? I sure didn’t.
Face it, when Denver is playing you are watching. Even if it is atrocious, you keep watching because he is exciting. You can talk about QB rating and completion percentage and that is valid, but the NFL is a bottom-line league. All that matters are wins and losses. Trent Dilfer won a Super Bowl and he will be the first to admit he wasn’t an elite quarterback.
Here’s the thing; I admire Tebow for his positive attitude and how genuine he is. I don’t even care if he pans out as a quarterback, I just want him to find a niche in the league.
I am not a father yet, but if I was I would tell my son to watch Tebow. I wouldn’t use his mechanics or delivery to teach my son how to throw a football, but I would use him as an example of sportsmanship and hard work. Tebow has the best attitude, even with all of the haters bashing him at every turn. He smiles and laughs when people insult him and even belittle his religion or think when he kneels down to pray that it is some sort of act.
The funniest thing I heard this week was in his press conference when he said he would tweet Hugh Douglas and make sure he was in church like he promised he would be if Tebow beat the Jets. “He better be in his Sunday best,” Tebow said. “Maybe he’ll even do praise and worship.”
You can have your opinion about Tebow as a player, but to say you hate him as a person is ludicrous. If you hate Tebow, it’s like hating puppies and ice cream. It just doesn’t make sense.
So go ahead and drink your Haterade, I am going to openly root for a good person to have success.

Jake Plummer and Tim Tebow actually have a fair amount in common, if you think about it. Both played quarterback for the Denver Broncos, and both won games in ways that were not always described as "pretty." But Plummer seems to have run out of patience with Tebow's prayer routine and wishes that the Broncos' current QB would tone it down a bit. "Tebow, regardless...
Last night while Tim Tebow was wrapping up a last minute victory for the Denver Broncos against the New York Jets, Hannah Archer, 15, of Fort Collins, CO. was wrapped up in her Tim Tebow blanket. That’s right, the best worst NFL quarterback has a blankie. I’m holding out until the Tim Tebow Snuggie, so I can have the sexy Tebow hug my entire body and keep me warm on these cold...
There is weakness in form, and there is strength under pressure. Tim Tebow is a quarterback with pronounced flaws as his Denver Broncos fall behind, but he also has an indomitable will to prevail when it ends. All the critics are right when they say Tebow can't pass accurately, can't read defenses all that well, can't operate a conventional offense.
The Broncos were going nowhere fast when Tim Tebow was inserted at quarterback. Now, they're 5-5 and in the thick of things in the AFC West. But how much has Tebow's play had to do with the team's 4-1 record in his starts?
On a day when Broncos team executive John Elway continued to praise the play of Tim Tebow, another former Denver QB, Jake "The Snake" Plummer, was lukewarm in his review of the 4-1 starter.
The Chicago Bears suffered a huge loss this last Sunday as Jay Cutler fractured his right thumb.
The Bears have chosen to name Caleb Hanie the teams' starting quarterback and have put aside the idea of adding a veteran quarterback like Marc Bulger who is familiar with the Mike Martz offense.
Haine has limited experience during the controversial NFC Championship game where...
Tebowmania has taken over the greater Denver area, just not the Broncos front office. Broncos executive vice president of football operations John Elway continues to be lukewarm about Tim Tebow’s future as the starting quarterback of the Broncos. Gary Miller asked Elway the following question on his weekly radio show on 102.3 FM, via the…
