“I promise you one thing. A lot of good will come out of this. You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season. You will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season. You will never see a team play harder than we will the rest of the season.” Click here to view the video on YouTube. The above quote is the greatest quote I have ever heard a person speak. Other than Kevin Garnett pounding his chest, the only thing in the entire world that can get me fired up is watching Tim Tebow’s speech after losing to Ole Miss. Tebow is a leader amongst men. He won the 2007 Heisman trophy by setting SEC records in almost every major category. He was projected to be drafted in the late rounds of the 2010 NFL Draft and to be a bust, but persevered. Tebow led the 2-5 Denver Broncos into the 2011 playoffs, and became a hero. My parents remember where they were when JFK was shot, and I remember when I was when Tebow beat one of the premier defenses in the league when they upset the Steelers. Tebow was then traded to his “preferred destination” and as we all know, and would be introduced during a press conference and would be given the chance to lead the Jets to the Super Bowl, right? Nope sorry! Punt Protector! Photo Credit: Heinz Kluetmeier/SI Now as we all know, the Jets released poor Tim Tebow last week. I wasn’t shocked. I was angry, furious, upset, mad, pissed off, and upset. According to ESPN, Tim Tebow brings a circus of media members to him wherever he goes. ESPN “experts” say that Tebow simply cannot play in the NFL. I will never understand. Ever. I am a diehard New England Patriots fan. I want Tebow more than anything. Once he was released, I figured the Patriots would sign him and stick it to the Jets just like they did with Danny Woodhead. Bill Belichick has already come out and said no due to the “circus”. While I watch ESPN for at least four hours a day, it troubles me when they absolutely crap on Tebow. What goes through people’s minds when they talk about this so-called Tebow “circus”? The circus is ESPN. ESPN is the circus. ESPN follows Tebow around all day everyday. Reporting on what he eats, what time he goes to bed, and whether or not he can throw a football. Guys like Skip Bayless (my favorite) and Stephan A Smith debate every single day about whether Tebow can be a legitimate player in the league. They create controversy about Tebow and end the argument with something along the lines of “He’s got potential and all, but he brings way too much media attention.” Give me a break. It baffles me. It kills me. Tebow deserves a chance. He’s a winner. A pure winner.  If you’re reading this Tim, you can suit up for my squad any day of the week. -Kovner
