Ok, let me make this clear once and for all. I do NOT dislike Tim Tebow. I don't think he's a bad quarterback. I think that he's an exceptional leader, and can rally teammates around him in practically any situation. That being said...ENOUGH ALREADY TEBOW FANS!!
My issue this season has not been with St. Tebow, it's with his fans. This particularly annoying cult of zombies who seemingly want to throw all kudos and credit to the Denver QB, when in fact, at times they are winning in spite of him. Then this sect of Te-Zombies want to attack the "faith" of anyone who dares question Tebow's part in the success of the Broncos. (I personally was the recipient of such attacks last night on Twitter). Give me one huge break already. They want to say he just has "it" or "he just wins" Again...get a grip! This TEAM has "it" and "just wins"
Let me put a few questions out there for you. Did Tebow kick a 59 yard field goal? Did Tebow strip the ball from Marion Barber? Did Tebow force Barber's bad decision to go out of bounds? And those just apply to yesterday's game against the Bears. He's been the recipient of some "gifts" in a number of games this season.
Last night, ESPN's Jemele Hill dared to point out that the Broncos and Tebow have been lucky enough to play some very bad teams, and some teams that are minus key players. (Is yesterday's game a different one if the Bears have Jay Cutler and Matt Forte? I'm thinking yes...it's not even close at the end) Immediately the backlash of Te-Zombies started to fill her Twitter timeline. People calling her a "hater" and questioning her professionalism. So is it now unprofessional to point out the truth? Or is is just against your religion?
It's time that you Tebow supporters started showing the same type of tolerance that you preach, and stop putting him up there with Mother Theresa. Give proper credit where it is due. This Denver team lives on it's defense. The defense keeps them close in games, and allows Tebow the opportunity to make a last minute rally. This Denver team has one of the best kickers in the NFL. Three overtime wins, all thanks to the foot of Matt Prater. Is Tebow a part of it all? Well of course he is. But he's just a cog in the machine. He's not the entire engine.
I think it's safe to say that the number of Tebow "haters" would greatly diminish if his little cult following would simply allow the rest of the football world to arrive at their own conclusions about him, instead of constantly barraging us with their inane observations and ridiculous accolades. I'd agree with Colin Cowherd's statement that while Rodgers, Manning, Romo and Brady are executive chefs...Tebow is a cook. Cooks make simple and satisfying meals, like grilled cheese. And I personally like grilled cheese, but I don't want it rammed down my throat.
