Tim Tebow: Football is Not First or Second Most Important Thing in Life

Oh my goodness! Did you hear that, Broncos fans?  You are not number one on Tim Tebow’s priority list! 

When you are a rabid fan, you want to know your franchise’s key players are fully invested in the team.  You want to believe that the leaders spend all their time and effort watching film, working out, and preparing for the next victory.  Denver fans, however, will have to live with the fact that the Broncos are not No. 1 or No. 2 on Tebow’s priority list.

As Sports Radio Interviews shared with us, Tebow appeared on the Scott Van Pelt Show Friday morning and was asked how he feels about so many people doubting him.  His response is sure to knock the delusional fan’s socks right off.

“Well I am not sure,” Tebow said. “I know a lot of people support me as well and that means a lot to me. I can’t focus on the naysayers because they will always be there and they have always been there and I am just thankful that I don’t have to live the roller coaster life that everybody else watching me lives because I can stay grounded in my faith knowing that Jesus Christ is the most important thing in my life and then family number two and then football comes after that. As long as the first two are good then football will take care of itself because at the end of the day it is a game. It’s a game that we are very passionate about. It’s a game that I love and I give my whole heart out there playing, but I don’t live and die with playing the game because I know it’s not the most important thing.”

Alright, I guess we can give him that.  I’m sure fans in the Mile High city want Tebow to be pissed when he gets Tebowed on or wish he would fire back at someone like Brandon Lloyd, but he’s a man who’s comfortable and at peace with his way of life.  It’s your emotional roller coaster, Broncos fans.  Tebow loves Jesus and his momma.

    Don’t underestimate Tebow’s passion due to his courteous demeanor.  He’s very polite but also extremely competitive.  He doesn’t trash talk or complain.  Instead, he internalizes the stuff that truly bothers him and uses it for fuel.  This is made clear in his book.  For instance, when Sam Bradford won the Heisman, I’m sure Tebow was sincerely happy for him and congratulatory, but at the same time he said to Coach Urban Meyer (soon after the Heisman ceremony), “Game on.”  He was referring to the National Championship Game against Oklahoma (with Bradford at QB of course) which was coming up next.  Tebow and the Gators won.  Getting beat for the Heisman = extra fuel to win the Oklahoma game.  What was the one personal foul penalty Tebow received as a Gator?  First he ran over and then turned back and gator chomped a defensive player, the same defensive player who had said some unkind things about Tebow prior to the game.  Denver fans can be assured that Tebow does respond; he simply does so in a much quieter but ultimately wiser way.  He doesn’t fight with the war of words.  He battles it out on the field.  I’m quite sure that if Tebow ever faces the Lions again as a starting NFL QB, whether with Denver or another team, he’ll come into that game with some extra added inner incentive.  Don’t doubt that for one minute.

    On no?!!?!?!? Please the guy who wrote this is an idiot. There is nothing wrong with his faith and family being priority, coming from a life long Bronco fan that is a good thing!!!! I wouldnt expect anyone in their right mind to choose football over their beliefs no matter what they are. And to think that anyone would choose football over family is just plain ignorant. If your the star player on a team and your mother was dying do you think anyone would care if you were by her side and missed the game? Grow the @##@! up! This article is just another attempt to try to run tebows name in the dirt just because he does not have any!!! Why dont you go back to school and learn journalism all over again because if you actually did graduate with a degree then you should ask for your money back, because you wouldnt know news if it slapped you in the face!!!@!  You people dig and dig and dig to try to find a reason not to like this guy and to start your own anti tebow band wagon to make yourself feel better, because he has more integrityin his pinky finger than this asshole has in his whole body. Good luck next week in your attempt at Tebow bashing. Because i and the whole broncos nation knows You weazels will try to find something else tomorrow to try to bring tebow down!!!  GO BRONCOS!!!!!!    GO TEBOW!!!!!
