When University of Florida quarterback Tim Tebow started his career in the NFL with the Denver Broncos, he came off a storied college career in Gainesville. While his rookie year wasn’t one for the history books the NFL star begin to get more attention for his off the field life than his winning ways. So is Tebow a typical jock with models and mayhem in the off-field, no he is a man of God and apparently it’s an issue. As Tebow began praying after touchdowns and standing firm on his believes he became a sensation for mockery by late night pundits and nay sayers everywhere. In this day and time if you have any kind of morals or standards you are tagged boring, and fake. It is pathetic to me that is Tim was juggling two models he would have a better reputation than getting on his knees to pray. Look I am not religious by far but what is happening in society when praying and having strong faith leads to backlash and ridicule. At what point to sports pundits grow out of the “jock” stage and show some time of brain inside their over muscular brains? For his part Tebow is unfazed by the attention and continues to work at his craft on and off the field. As the Superbowl approaches and Tom Brady and Eli Manning take the field I can’t help but wonder when Tebow will get his turn to rub his God’s Son reputation all in these haters faces. Because let’s face it at the end of the day the man is a winner and has the heart of a champion which should be all that matters in the first place, right?
