Why Tebow?

He’s not the first telegenic Christian quarterback. Remember Steve Bartkowski? There’s been plenty more since, and most were much more accomplished than Tim Tebow.

So why all the fuss? The guy is totally scripted and not a very good QB. I’m sure he’s a nice guy but really, why is everyone so invested in a back-up?

At least Bart could go deep.

  1. The fuss is because people cannot wait to blame Jesus for Tebow’s failures. It’s a blood sport for writers unwilling to actually shed blood; they can write whatever they want knowing Tebow won’t beat their ass.

    Bartkowski didn’t really come to Jesus until nearly mid-point in his career, and that was more than 30 years ago. It wasn’t yet cool to mock Christians then, as it is now.

  2. “Persecuted” Christians are advised to focus on the real persecution of Christians in places like Egypt and Iraq. Not everyone likes everyone, and American Christians need to cut out the whining. Tebow is a product of media hype — the same media Christians say is out to get them.

  3. Tebow came along in the ESPN-Internet-24-hour information age, he was one of the best college players of his generation, and he was part of two national title teams at a very high-profile school. That explains a lot of it, I think.

  4. All of the above. Tebow is dynamic, has broad appeal and is articulate. Apparently he lacks the skills of a traditional NFL QB yet he finds a way to will his team to victory. Sports fans love him for that. Religious folk love him for his optimism and open devotion to his Christian beliefs, which is also why others hate him. News outlets give him attention because he generates high ratings, unfortunately, higher ratings than news of Chipper’s retirement. Hard to blame ESPN for that.

    Although I’m not a big NFL fan, I think it’ll be interesting to see how he does in NY and how the fans/media embrace him. My money says he’s out of the league in 3 years, tops.
