|Congrats to your Pats, Altie. Brady looked impressive. Gronkowski looks bigger than the Patriot Mascot guy with the big head that stands in the endzone. The guy really has great hands. He also put a beating on who ever that corner or safety was with the dreadlocks. Once the guy tried to tackle him and barely made it off the field. Later the same guy made an interception and Gronkowski lowered his shoulder into him and decleated him. Ouch.|
Regarding Tebow, I don't get all the haters. My Facebook wall is filled with them. So is the sports talk radio. If he was doing some stupid endzone dance and taunting the other team, it seems he would be accepted more by the masses.
Ben Rothlisberger seems to get less hate and he was a binge-drinking rapist. I admire Big Ben for being a QB. But think he didn't have much character otherwise. People can easily look past that. Why do they find it so hard to look past a guy saying a prayer on the sidelines.
My view on Tebow is the guy inspires his team to win. He did it in college. And turned the 1-5 Broncos into a playoff team. He gives everything he got, no matter what the score, is a good example on and off the field, spends his off time helping the poor - not only by writing a check, but going to the God-aweful village building a hospital. However, since he mentions his "Lord and Savior Jesus Christ" as the source of his strength and inspiration, people can't stand the guy. I don't get it. What is he doing that is so wrong?
I don't think he is praying for wins. I think he is praying for strength, courage, faith, and to be able to use his talents the best he can.
Anyhow, I love what the guy is doing for the sport. I bet he will be the hardest working guy during the offseason trying to get his mechanics and throwing to be better. He also will need to spend a lot of time learning how to read defenses.
With the amount of potential earning power this guy has, I am sure the Broncos will hire the best guys to work with him.
