    With his style of play, he's not going to last long. What we're seeing right now might be his peak, and he's not really that good (in a strictly football skill sense).

The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself.

    He's not a great passer, but he can play football like it's 1956.

    I'm not really a football fan, but I'm sort of tired of people taking shots at him just over his religion.

    He's a decent person who tries to be more than a dickwad.

    He's not fighting dogs, he's not getting swamped by rape charges, he's not shooting people because he got drunk in a bar, he's not throwing hissy fits over a 190 million dollar contract instead of a 250 million dollar one...

    So he wants to tribute his religion openly, why's that such an issue?

    Plus, he's cute. Cute guys shouldn't get ragged on this much (unless "ragged on" is a euphemism for something hot and steamy)

    EDIT:

    That said,

    I don't any issues with Tebow himself. I have a problem with how the media (ESPN in particular) force feeds us TEBOW TIME constantly. I watched sportscenter tonight and there are 4 out of 7 stories related to Tebow.

    And from what I have seen, Denver's defense deserves a shitload of credit that is instead going to Tebow. That defense could carry Tebow kicking and screaming to the superbowl, and the media would give all of the credit to Tebow.

    You know who the only person giving any credit to the defense is? Tebow.

    And most of those stories, since Tebow was a senior, have been about how Tebow will never make it as an NFL quarterback.

    I'm not taking anything away from Denver's defense, but where were they the first five games?

    Everyone I discuss this matter gives plenty of credit to the defense; in fact, for the last month, all every Tebow-hater has been saying is that it's all about the defense; even Skip Bayless, ESPN's only pro-Tebow analyst all season long, said two weeks ago that 50% of the credit goes to the Denver defense; and all this is the case despite the fact that the Denver defense is actually ranked 15th in the league against the pass and 21st against the run. It also ignores the fact that: 1) Tebow has done a good job not turning the ball over; 2) their run-heavy offense allows them to wind down the clock; and 3) defenses play harder for a quarterback they believe in.

    I've got nothing against Tebow. So far, he seems like a genuinely good person.

    But not all "Christian" professional athletes are like Tebow. Most are more like Albert Pujol$, who told Cardinals fans that God told him to go sign with the Angels, who just happened to offer him the most money. Pujol$ says it's not about the money, he was just being obedient to the ultimate authority. Therefore, if you're questioning Pujol$, you are questioning God.

    Yeah, well I'm a lifelong Angels fan, so...

    ...thanks, God.
