I am a Tim Tebow Fan #tebow #nflfootball
And I want to see him play football. There I said it. And I feel good about it.
Disclaimer: The following is only a post from a humble football fan that expresses my heartfelt thoughts.
Yes, I'm a woman and I'm not a Tebow fan because he's good looking either – that has nothing to do with why I want to see him play football.
First and foremost I am a football fan. I'm a believer in the NFL. American football is fun to watch. (Sadly, I can't afford tickets to see the Chargers or 49'ers because they are too high price for a middle income family of four, so is Disneyland, but that's another post for another time)
Thank goodness for TV. Oh, and I still can afford college games. You can find me in the USC stands.
Growing up in New England, I love the Patriots. Living in California, I'm a Chargers & 49'ers fan. When it comes to college, I follow USC.
Why am I Tebow fan? Because he's a class act.
#1 – He's dynamic. He made Denver football fun to watch. I was never much of a Broncos fan, but I tuned in to watch him. Watching Tebow is exciting. I also like to watch Michael Vick and RGIII. All 3 share a quality that make them interesting to watch and easy to cheer for. They're simply dynamic.
#2 – He's a great role model for my boys. My son's favorite football player is Donald Driver because he won a Superbowl ring with the Packers and the Mirror Ball trophy on DWTS. Donald Driver is a class act on the field and off - that's what he has in common with Tebow. He's a great role model for young boys who want to play football.
Is Tebow a bad quarterback with awful mechanics?
I've seen quarterbacks come and go. Ryan Leaf – remember him? The Bills haven't had a steady QB since Jim Kelly. Tebow can handle stress and pressure and he's proved that. He's a Heisman Trophy winner and that says a lot.
Tebow comes with a dog and pony show that no team wants to deal with.
Really? So does Michael Vick but I see the Eagles willing to take it on. If I were a team like the Jags, the Browns, the Bills, the Dolphins, even the Raiders, I'd be taking a chance on Tebow. I'll tell you this – whatever team Tebow lands on I'm buying his jersey for my boys and tuning in to watch his games.
Tebow is religious. He "tebows.
As a football fan, "tebowing" does not bother me. I'm religious, too. A small religious gesture for thanks does not offend me.
I can sniff 2013-14 football in the air. It's not here yet, but I'm budgeting my $$ to see my Trojans play in the fall. And I'm hoping Tebow finds a team before then. How about you?
