I love watching Bronco’s quarterback Tim Tebow. Don’t you? A young man who has let to loose his innocence or be corrupted by fame. A player who has average stats but helps the team win games. I love hearing the defensive players when interviewed in the locker room rave about Tebow and what he means to the team.
I also love watching the sports journalists try to get their heads around Tebow. They wrote him off when the Bronco’s drafted him. They wrote him off early this season and, like the sports writer for the Wall Street Journal, have had to back-peddle. They were so focused on Tebow’s talent they forgot the impact he has on the team, the Broncos organization and the the fans.
Tebow plays his heart out and it’s contagious. He creates momentum. He is a leader. He is an engaged team player. He aligns his team.
My hat off to Bronco’s coach John Fox for taking a gamble and betting on the team vs. the best player.
