[quote user="CTLadyBlue"][quote user="Bing Crosby"][quote user="jjj45"]You are going to find a lot more hate here. It is what it is.
I've said it before and I'll say it again I don't get the Tebow hate here in Giant's nation. The man meant nothing to us. My cousin hates him as well, but as I told him it's not his fault that the media can't shut up about him.
The other argument against him is that he got the spotlight, well the media looked down on Eli. The sad truth is that the media wasn't going to do more then mock Eli until he shut them up by what he did on the field. Tebow had nothing to do with that.
Plain and simple (and this is solely my opinion) it's his public profession of his christianity which cause people to ostracize him. Believe me - my husband and I are born again Christians and I can tell you first hand how differently view you because they think you're religious freaks who only want to talk about Jesus 24/7. (Hint: we don't!)
It doesn't bother me when he 'thanks his Lord and Savior' before every interview, because...well.....I'd rather that than, "I'd like to give my most wicked gratification to the Prince of Darkness, Satan (snark)
Professionally - he's an okay QB with the potential to be great. And he very well can't do that under Peyton's shadow in Denver. Why that franchise took a chance on an aged QB with a yet-to-be-seen-how-he-bounces-back-from neck injury for FIVE years over a young, big, strong, popular guy like Tebow is beyond me. Nothing against Peyton - I think the guy is a class act, but I personally think he should've retired. I heard that no other sports figure ever had an injury such as his so they couldn't gage how quick (if at all) one bounces back from it. Does Denver really want to take that chance? Peyton's one QB sack from a 23 y/o, 300lb lineman from being carted off the field on a stretcher (God forbid!)
Oh, and someone on my FB who's a Denver fan posted, "Peyton's a Bronco. Superbowl here we come!" Er....it's not just the QB but who he's throwing to and I think Peyton had a better receiving corp with the Colts than he'll have with Denver.[/quote]
Actually there have been players with his kind of injury. I am glad Manning is back, he is the finest QB to play the game. His football IQ is one of the best. Broncos WR must be going nuts to play with this guy. I think that the Bronco just got a whole lot better.
