    I really admire the guy...I believe he will have trouble getting all the recognition he deserves from the media because of his devoutness....Christians are not PC these days...Let some talking bobblehead make a non-pc reference and there goes their career..Remember Rush Limbaugh, Hank Williams, Jr..???

    Yea, I watched him drop one on his recievers shoulder on a dead run out 40 yards or so to set up the game tieing field goal but prior to the field goal he droped a 15 yard beauty right into the hands of his reciever for what should have been the winning touchdown only the reciever didnt hang on. He looked as good as any other passing QB in the league today and is getting better every game. And they say he cant pass. I think its hillarious how they wrote him off 3 games into his season.

    I have not read this thread until this morning, because I am simply completely turned off by any organized team sports. I once played basketball, baseball, and was just getting into football in High School when the coach got us all fired up for a game and I HIT the other line. After the play, one of the other players was being helped off the field and I saw it was the lineman I had hit, doubled up in pain. He raised his head as I approached and he looked into my eyes. His expression was something that still haunts me, and I have not been able to stand to even watch team sports since that day.

    That said, I will toss in that I am very proud of ANYONE who is not shy about sharing their faith in Jesus Christ. That places me in the Tim Tebow camp, even though I have never watched him play.
    Nor ever will.

    He is the absolute real deal. He is building schools and hospitals over in the phillipines for his orphans with his own money. That is not what makes him the real deal. I have followed him since his high school days because I knew he was going to play for florida. The guy just has a heart for god and no peer pressure can change it. I wouldnt care if he ever played another down in another game. He will be successfull in life no matter what. He is just the real deal.

    Timmy does it again... it is almost routine now to see teams implode in the last minutes of games and make "mistakes" that give Tebow and his teammates an opportunity to win... God uses the "foolish things of this world" to confound the wise...

    I'm with Terry. I used to be a rabid sports fan and quit cold turkey, coming to the personal realization that I wasn't put on Earth to be a spectator. When I see an ad comparing athletes to warriors and gladiators and men on the battlefield, it makes me want to vomit. There are a lot of things in life worth getting worked up over and cheering for, and sports for me ain't on the list. At the risk of getting flamed, I categorize sports watching as idolatry, but I know, that's just me.

    That said, I know much about Tim Tebow, and it's clear he's a target not because of his athletic prowess, but in spite of it. He has confounded the critics and they want him swimming on the same drug-using, wife-beating, dog-fighting police blotter as the rest.

    It matters not one iota what we or anyone else say or think about him - he is the genuine article and is living his life as God instructed. Blessings on his house.

    His winning again really shows the Jacksonville Jaguars how smart they are. Who needs all that notoriety and money anyway. :(

    up above on another thread there is discussion about "principled politician" and weather there is even such a thing.

    When one runs across a principled person Tebow is a perfect examply of how they are treated!!

    One of those (D) lover panel members, Bob somebody, stated on Hannity that he would not want his child/grandchild to be like Tebow.. Hannithy asked who would be better?? Drug using, tattoed, shoot himself in the leg football player types?? He didnt answer that I heard??
