Re: The Tebow Conundrum
Here's the thing, ever since the Jets starting playing last year, it doesn't feel like there's been a ton of Tim Tebow talk. Sure you get it on Mike & Mike in the morning, but greeny talks everything jets all the time, so that's to be expected.
However, lets look at the facts (not anyone's opinion), Tim Tebow, coming off winning a playoff game the season prior, gets traded to the media capital of the world for a team with a coach who has been less than shy about sharing his feelings with the press. Throw in that he was a 1st round draft pick (deserved or not) and heisman winning QB in college, and I don't care what your faith is, nor how good of a character you may or may not hold, that is newsworthy.
Its not like Tebow is the first backup QB to get some run. Matt Flynn was talked about a ton over the course of several off seasons, Matt Schaub got his run on the way to getting moved to Houston. Tebow won't be the first, won't be the last.
And can we please stop acting like he's a complete failure as an football player? He may not be Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, but its not like he's never won a football game. The Dude's had a better career as a QB in the NFL than 99% of the population. I know I've rooted for more than 1 Bengal's QB (hello Akili & David) who would love to have the success in the NFL that Tebow had in Denver.
