  1. I don’t buy the racial or religious explanations for some football analysts’ disdain for TIm Tebow. It’s more about the perception that his traditional QB skills are lacking. His team’s improvement under his helm has confused people. However, his QB rating is average despite a terrible completion percentage (48.5). He rarely turns the ball over, which is unusual for a young QB. It helps that his team is very good defensively and has an outstanding kicker.

    For those over age 45, he is reminiscent of Bobby Douglass, a QB for the Chicago Bears in the early ’70s. Remarkably, Tebow is left-handed like Douglass, almost the same size, and a great runner. Douglass was a failure in the NFL and part of his legacy is the belief that Tebow can’t make it. But, Tebow is much smarter and has that intangible quality of being a winner. He will only get better with the help of the Lord, Jesus Christ.

    i love the contrast between klosterman and shirley on tebow. klosterman tries to take his viewpoint out of things while shirley (in typical fashion) creates a narcissistic “airing of the grievances” about race issues. sorry, shirley, that jamaal crawford and those mean old black players were mean to you and were better players. what a douche.
