Best Commentary on Tim Tebow Supe Ad

By Debbie Schlussel

The best commentary I’ve read in defense of the Tim Tebow Focus on the Family Superbowl ad airing during tonight’s Big Game, is from Michael Hiestand, USA Today’s Sports on TV columnist.  An excerpt:


Tim Tebow & Mom, Stars of Supe Ad

After relentless ads on TV football for erectile dysfunction treatments we’ve already passed the point where we can assume Super Bowl ads will be G-rated. . . .

At least the Tebow ad . . . will add something refreshing to the Super Bowl mix.

It won’t ask us to buy anything.

On this at least, he gets it.

I’m so tired of hearing about Tim Tebow, He’s a terrible quarterback and will be out of football in three years. He can’t throw, can’t scramble, and can’t take a snap out of the pocket. Before anyone brings up his college stat’s remember one thing. He played in a system. Andre Ware anyone? The ra-ra leadership he emitted in College will get him beat up in a pro locker room. His Senior bowl performance was so bad it pretty much guaranteed that no team will take him before the sixth round. Without this Superbowl ad knowone would be talking about him. Ironically its probably the closest he will get the Superbowl.

Maybe Tebow can make a good H-back or tight end in a wildcat-like offense? While I agree he probably will not make it as a pure QB, I would not bet against him figuring out some way to succeed in the NFL. You may be sick of Tebow, but he is not a quitter.

Obviously, there is life after football. Tim Tebow is a quality person and will succeed in whichever direction he chooses to go. Even if he makes the pros, you won’t see his name listed with the usual lineups at the police station. I hope that he makes the pros just to give us a breath of fresh air.

I bet you once scored four touchdowns in a single game for Polk High? If Tebow was as bad and horrible as you make out, he would not have gotten so much play time. Monday Morning Quarterbacks like you only can dream of being where he is right now…

1Smithfan, Never played High school football, but I was a Hockey Player my whole life, not that it has anything to do with my earlier post, so I really don’t know what it means to be a “Monday Morning Quarterback”. To answer your question, ya he is that bad. If you watched his Senior bowl performance you would know that. The media hyped this guy to a degree I’ve never seen with the famous qoute “If you’ve ever spent 5 minutes with Tim Tebow your a better person for it”. Please….gag me with a spoon. BTW, he better get real fast, real quick to play half back, or grow a couple of inches to play Tight end or its good bye Tim Tebow.

Tim Tebow is a suvivor and leader; too bad that many more people have ethics like he does.

I hope the Carolina Panthers pick him up in the draft. What a running attack we would have then. He’s a winner, and wherever he ends up, he’ll succeed!

Someday in the near future we will see Tebow’s name on a NFL roster. And I will tell my son that if he wants to emulate an athlete, Tebow is the one–not a Sapp, Burres, Pacman, Vick, etc.

I would rather have a medicore player who has some ethical and moral character than a super star who beats women, tortures and kills animals, or commits one of the other varied felonies the current NFL players seem so fond of.

What did Tim Tebow ever do to you? You must be a USC fan. Seriously, the guy is nothing more than a very good – if admittedly overrated but still very good – college player whose game doesn’t translate to the NFL. Excuse me, but doesn’t that describe A TON of guys? It is you who has the problem, not Mr. Tebow. Look, it is just a game, and Tebow is just a player. 5 years ago Matt Leinart was getting all the hype that Tebow is getting, and 5 years from now it will be somebody else. Whatever it is you have against the guy – and incidentally it isn’t his fault that the media chose to use him to make money off – get over it.

Funny thing about Tim Tebow, he would read the vicious comments in this blog and most likely say, “God bless you.” At the tender age of 21, he’s more man than any of you who would take this opportunity to disparage him. He’s a young man for God’s sake! How about a little praise for the fantastic gentleman that he has become. Despite the verbal hatred Tim will succeed in any endeavor. You would be lucky if your daughter walked in the house with Tim holding her hand! At least you wouldn’t have to worry. He represents the kind of student-athlete that brings honor and sportsmanship back into the college game. Come to think of it, blog commentary could use a little Tim Tebow humility. For Tim – – – Keep chargin’
