Great Tim Tebow News....


Like him or not, you have to admit the guy has stones.

He's one of nine being invited to spring training with the Mets.

he did an outstanding job with the minors.

Good for him!

I hope he soars to the top.

And I'm the least religious person you'll ever meet.

More proof that the Wilpons are the only competition for the Johnsons(Jets) for worst ownership in professional sports.

I always liked Tebow and I couldn't have been happier for the guy in that Denver walk off TD game. Let's be real though, he's publicity at this point and that's that.

The big question is how good his bat is. Any team can use a good hitter. Rule of thumb is if you don't learn to hit 90+ MPH fastballs before you are 19, you aren't going to get good at batting. Both my boys could hit them in HS.

A strong arm usually would be a natural for outfield.

Incredible competitor. Other than the Tebow Madness which was not his fault he is not a showboater either. When he says he's going to do something he does it from everything I have ever seen, great leader on the field. Was really rooting for him in the NFL even though he did not have the style that is required to play at that level. I hate Florida, but I could not help but watch him when he was there. He would almost single-handedly turn around games.

Even in the NFL, he won games that he played despicably in with heroics at the end. The type of guy who finds a way to win no matter what. No way not to respect that if you are a sports watcher

Still not as good as a college player as Major Applewhite.

Major was a bad mofo. But not as bad as Colt or Vince. I still liked him a lot.. to be honest though, major could not have carried tebo's jockstrap. Mack Brown should have gotten him. LOL

Are we watching the same games? Sure he was a rockstar from a young age, scooping every trophy along the way.... But then he ended up as a mediocre NFL player. He came in with a ludicrous amount of media hype, the merchandising was wild, billboards, adds internet memes you name it. Seems like you couldn't watch TV without seeing another painfully boring interview.

Make no mistake I wish him the best and I'm by no means saying he wasn't a great athlete, I just never understood the media hype.

I don't know which games you were watching, I'm talking about the games in Denver, he had four 4th quarter comebacks that he won the game for them. One of them was in the playoffs. That is pretty awesome for a guy who probably only started a dozen games. Never said he was a stellar NFL quarterback, quite the opposite, I said he did not have the style necessary to play in that League. But he was a great competitor. The games that he won at the end of the game he did not do it traditionally with 300 yards passing and four touchdowns or anything like that. He just found a way

Super tpugh too, guys he played with in college said he played with a lot of pretty bad injuries that were never disclosed.

I never understood the hype either and I think it hurt his career. But I do not think he asked for the hype.

Well said, but I think he loved the hype, why else would he do so many interviews, and terrible ones? Did the world need to know about the guys virginity?

I think most of that stuff is the same reason people preach or spread the word. He had beliefs that he wanted to share. Or maybe he just saw it as a marketing Ploy who knows. I always thought he was pretty legit

If you want to be a role model, you have to let people know what you're modeling. His is all about his faith, and I don't think he is BSing it.

I don't doubt that, I just don't see why so much media hype.

As far as I'm concerned praying has always had a significant place in the NFL since the 90s. But then Tim Tebow does it 20 years later and becomes a media phenomenon.

Heck Husain Abdullah does it and gets a 15 yard penalty.

Well I mean it's a professional organization that has a team named the Redskins.
How much do you want out of them?

Actually the meme is backwards. Tebow was vilified by the media for his religious beliefs.

The hype came from the media, not Tebow.

I promise not to go political but, ESPN and others have no use for anything white and Christian.

FACTOID.
