Tim Tebow is, at best, a gifted athlete that got as far as he did at QB due to the system he was in. He is likely to be the third string QB in Denver this season...if they don't trade him. An undrafted free agent from the University of Minnesota is drawing the praise Tebow normally gets, but as an undrafted free agent vs. 1st round pick, the former Gopher will be on the practice squad.
As much as I don't like Tebow, I hate the media's obsessive deification of him even more. Tebow is by all accounts a strong Christian man, just like many, many strong Christian men that have played football before him. He accomplished some very impressive things at Florida. He wasn't the first football player to go on missions. He wasn't the first to win the Heisman. He was the first college player to perform medical procedures on the privates of 14 year old boys, so he has that going for him.
I'm just shocked the media is still scratching their heads over the 'fall' of Tebow in the NFL. Keep the sharp stuff away from Thom Brenneman.
