NFL Network To Air 'Top Ten Things We Love About Tim Tebow'

Unfortunately, this is not a joke.

The NFL Network has taken their love for New York Jets personal punt protector and backup quarterback Tim Tebow to a new level. It’s almost sickening but the network will be unveiling a special this Saturday called “Top 10 Things We Love About Tim Tebow.”

What could a top ten list for Tim Tebow include? Here are some ideas.

1. All he does is win. 

That’s right, Tebow just wins. Let’s ignore his below average statistics and the fact that he was carried by an impressive defense and one of the best kickers in the league in Denver. It was all Tebow.

2. Tebowing

Before Tebow, there was never a player in the NFL to take a knee and give glory to their god. Perhaps they were simply checking out the turf but Tebow invented the one knee prayer that has brought religion into the game.

3. He’s always excited

4. Toughness

Tebow always exhibits toughness on the football field. Tebow runs like a fullback and throws like one, too. He is not afraid to take a hard hit if it helps his team gain a yard. Tebow will just lower his shoulder and push the ball another few inches. He’s always trying to help move the chains. I mean, you have to be tough to be a personal punt protector!

5. Humility

Tim Tebow isn’t the greatest quarterback in the league and he knows it. Seeing Tebow recklessly throw the ball around the field with inspiring inaccuracy gives us all hope that we could still accomplish our dream of becoming a NFL quarterback.

It is hard to come up with ten things to love about Tim Tebow as a football player when, quite frankly, he hasn’t really accomplished much. It is his cult-like following that keeps Tebow at the top of popularity charts and keeps the media talking about him. People buy into the Tebow hype for whatever reason.

Like it or not, Tebow is here to stay and the NFL Network is giving us ten reasons why this Saturday.

    Until the Bronco mgt. treated Tebow like trash, reminding us that the NFL is ultimately a business, I was an avid Bronco fan. He brought the attention of the entire NFL and nation to a small market with a pathetic losing team like Denver. He made us a winner. However, in the addition to the things mentioned in the show, the greatest thing was that, in every game, he brought someone who had been suffering in silence and made them the center of attention. “Who would be next?”, we wondered? Whose life would be, if even for a moment, made exciting and dignified. He elevated football to be more than just watching two groups of guys trying to move a leather spheroid up and down a field. He dignified the suffering just like he started a hospital for orphans in the Phillipines. Orphans in grinding poverty experienced some modicum of relief. Many of us loved him for that. He was a real and genuine champion at simply being a human being. I don’t know if many of the “experts” understand why many of the fans love him, or, for that matter, ever could. There is now a hole in the hearts of many Bronco fans that Peyton Manning could never fill; never.
