No let up in senseless attacks of Tim Tebow

After years of swirling around Tim Tebow, the vultures now have something else to pick on.

It's barely a scrap, if that, for holier-than-Tebow critics who have been foaming at the mouth to dig up a granule of dirt on the man ever since he announced he was still a virgin.

The article provides this quote from a worthless, washed-up NFL player (Steelers) concerning Tim Tebow:

He's a "fraud," a "loser" and, as ESPN's Merril Hoge declared, is as "phony as a three-dollar bill."

Hoge's hateful remarks are no doubt based in his contempt for morality and Christians.

As I recall, Hoge was far from being a superstar, in fact I always thought he was a third rate player, but I'm sure the longer he sits on his pompous ass in the broadcast chair, in his mind his career grows into epic porportions.

I don't know when things changed from reporting on sports to pontifications from a-holes like Hoge, but no one gives a flip what he thinks. He should be fired.

Now that their their 3rd string QB is out with a concussion, Rex and the Jets turn BACK to Sanchez. Man these guys are really committed to losing.

I have NEVER seen such a blatant, over the top attack on a second string QB as the media has with Tim Tebow. Their hate for him is surreal.

Can anybody explain why the Jets signed Tebow, with all that fanfare, if they never intended to play him? Now their third-string QB is out with a concussion and the Jets are going to pass over Tebow once again and go back to the washed-up Sanchez, he of a zillion interceptions and fumbles, to start Sunday’s meaningless game against the Bills.

Tebow spelled the starting quarterback for a series in a recent game. When the starter returned, the starter immediately threw an interception. The announcer blamed it on Tebow!!! I replayed it on my DVR just to make sure I had heard it correctly.

Elway loathed Tebow and got him placed with a friend who continued the denigration of a fine young man.
I pray for Tebow’s strength, he is under going great testing.

When is the media going to turn up the heat on the Jets offensive line? No quarterback can be successful there.

Makes me think of this verse:

19 And this is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.
John 3:19 (KJV)

“Let us lie in wait for the righteous one, because he is annoying to us; he opposes our actions, reproaches us for transgressions of the law and charges us with violations of our training. He professes to have knowledge of God and styles himself a child of the LORD. To us he is the censure of our thoughts; merely to see him is a hardship for us, because his life is not like that of others, and different are his ways.” (Wisdom 2:12-15)

Great article. Thanks.

You're welcome. What makes it more surprising is that the source was Yahoo, typically filled with liberal talking points. Maybe the leftist editors there are taking some early New Year's vacation days there, otherwise the piece would have been spiked.

Hoge had a few concussions in his career so that might explain things. I don’t think Tebow is a very good quarterback but some of the vitriol thrown at him is way over the line.

Mike Francesa on the FAN radio broadcast has this situation all wrapped up. Ryan and the GM have made all the trades over the last two years, they got rid good players and drafted so so players. Woody the owner spent the money to make money on Tebow, publicity nut. Ryan has been a blowhard all his life just like his dad, he’s no head coach and never will be....(plus he’s a toe sucker) It will be interesting to see where he winds up, after the press gets done ripping Tebow and the Jets are losers again next year. They were practically giving away tickets the last few weeks

They don't hate him SO much for his Christianity. What they can't tolerate is that he is a pro-life icon. We can't have women reconsidering “choice”, dont’cha know. See the way they treated Aiken and that guy in Indiana's statements. Think about it.

I think you nailed it. I for one believe God is real and I have never seen such an attack on Christianity as what has developed in the last few years from the Godless liberal left and the corrupt media. I think to ease their consciences of their rejection of God that they have to attack those who do believe. I think the reason they embrace Islam is for the same reason. They know Islam is a sham false religion and they had rather have that than face up to their true rejection of God. Thus they will do and say anything to to demean Christians and Christianity simply to make themselves feel better. This is not a surprise. The Bible describes this fully.

I'd like to see Tim Tebow join the Jaguars and lead them to a Super Bowl. He'd certainly be big hit with the fans there since Jacksonville is his hometown (although born in the Philippines where his parents were Southern Baptist missionaries).

The downside is that the Jaguars are owned by Shahid Khan, a Muslim from Pakistan. On the other hand, knowing Tim Tebow's Christian witnessing, he might be able to convert Khan from that evil death cult.

Tebow is a white man and he’s an out of the closet Christian, he’s from the South, plus he’s a good, positive man rather than a black thug. That is why the vultures are setting upon him. It’s the only reason.

Pay attention to who exposes themselves as vultures and make them unpopular on sports websites in comments without mentioning their hatred of Tebow. Ridicule their weaknesses, work and their errors. Dislike them out loud. Christians have the power and numbers to put the vultures out to the badlands where they can eat one another and leave normal people alone.

I usually don’t post on Sports threads, because I don’t know much about sports.

However, even I have seen the vitriol aimed at Tim Tebow and I find it reprehensible.

My heart goes out to this Brother in Christ and I pray that God will shield his heart and mind from these vicious attacks, in Jesus name.

This it why I never watch sports.

If you're willing, make a one-time exception to that rule tonight. Baylor, a private Christian university from the free state of Texas, headed by Ken Starr, is absolutely whipping UCLA in the Holiday Bowl. I enjoy seeing a liberal, government-run indoctrination center from California getting schooled by Texans. It's 35-7 in favor of Baylor just before the half.

Total BS. Elway liked Tebow as a person but didn't see him as a long term solution for the Broncos. Payton Manning became available and chose the Broncos ... Tebow was gone. The record this season speaks for itself ... even though I like Tebow on a personal level he needs to check out the CFL. He's better suited for their game.

If non believers truely though Christianity was a myth, they wouldnt get their pantys all in a wad when others believed in it.

You don't see them protesting Santa or the Easter bunny. Self proclaimed Athiests are way more intent on imposing their views on me than I am on them.

I was listening to a paster on the radio awhile back when a young man called in proclaiming himself to be an athiest. The paster asked if the young man had ever read the bible to which he replied no. The paster kindly corrected him and stated, well your no athiest then, your just an uninformed idiot.

I always think back to that comment when people say they don't believe. Personally I believe thats their God given choice. Hard to be against something you know nothing about though.

In 34 career games, Tebow is responsible for approximately 3,500 yards from scrimmage and 29 touchdowns.

In 114 career games, Merrill Hoge was responsible for approximately 5,300 yards from scrimmage and 34 touchdowns.

I think maybe Merrill needs to check his ego, or it could be that those *HUGE* necktie knots are affecting the blood flow to his concussion-addled brain.

And don’t get me started on Rex “Tater Salad” Ryan. Loudmouth pervert.

Tebow completed 67% of his passes in college. But his delivery was too long and loopy for the pro game...he would be getting the ball slapped out of his hands. He has been working on changing his motion, and this has undoubtedly contributed to his accuracy issues (he’s under 50% in the NFL) and it seems like he occasionally doesn’t trust himself to just turn the ball loose.

With enough reps, he’ll get it worked out.
I’m rooting for the kid.

Elway trashed Tebow in the press and treated him like dog poop.
Sorry, but Elway is scum as far as how he treats players.
Tebow did not want to go to the Jets but because he is a good guy went where he was traded.

I had no idea...I’m not a Jag fan, but I am shocked. Who knew the Mooselimbs owned an NFL team. I knew they owned race horses but a football team is a shocker. Wow. And I thought I kept up with the news. I feel Tebow should avoid the Jags at all costs..

Hmmm...Hoge's necktie looks like a quadruple windsor.

Probably only has 3 inches left, so he wears a 6 button suit to cover up the tail.
