Faith-first Tebow

The common sportswriter narrative seems to be that Timmy T. has no chance to ever again be an NFL starting quarterback. Too inconsistent. Too etc. Not to mention the common Legacy Media-bane of too openly religious.

But the daily’s sportswriter Ced Golden admits that he likes Tebow’s faith-first attitude over the me-first attitude of most highly-paid NFL players. No kidding.

I also bet that’s why so many millions (41.9 million of them tuning in for the 11-second overtime last week, according to Ced) in this last-of-the-religious Western countries have made Tim a superstar.

UPDATE:  The Patriots rout of Tebow and the Broncos was not unexpected.

But, just as Tebow did not deserve the whole credit for the Broncos defeat of the Steelers—afterall, the receiver had to catch the pass and outrun his pursuers into the end zone—he hardly deserves the whole blame for the loss to the Patriots.

His receivers were either unable to shake their pursuers or they kept dropping his passes. And his offensive line couldn’t keep the Patriots defense from chasing him down before he had time to pass. It’s a team game, and, in that game at least, the Patriots were a much better team.

  1. That true what Golden says. A star that doesn’t put self first is a pleasant surprise.

  2. Indeed, considering the league is, as Medved says, “generously stocked with forgiven felons, millionaire wife-beaters and dog killers.” So, naturally, as Medved adds, the usual cynical media crew wants to see Timmy T. destroyed—and the sooner the better.
