If we're gonna puke pea soup over Tebow, how bout some substance? perhaps:
- "His arm is questionable."
- "He has no experience in a pro style offense."
- "His team around him decimates his opposition, leaving him untested."
- "A number of scouts are questioning his ability to read & react."
- "Because he cusses underclassmen, and pops equipment managers with towels."
- "Because f*** Florida, thats why!"
Which are much more credible than:
- "becaue he smiles/cries/perspires."
- "because he loves Jesus and dares to say so." (how many players name themselves "Mohammed?"-- I say no harm, no foul.)
- "because he's "All American," and I like my heros subversive and melancholy."
Drew Brees is clean & articulate too, smiles a lot, has a lovely wife, seems to love America, and even dares to mention God. --and nobody in New Orleans had a Linda Blair attack when he speaks. So lets enjoy some beignets and be glad there are puppies & kittens.
At least if the guy espouses values, maybe he wont be distracted by strip clubs, baby-mamas, and gun violence? maybe? After some personal self soul-evaluation for some of us, I think the prime question we ask is, "Can he help us win?"
As for how would I feel if the Saints drafted Tebow? the current FO and coaching staff just delivered a Superbowl in 4 years against higher odds than anyone ever, just about anything they have done personnel-wise has turned to gold, so if they decide they wanted Tebow, I'd be all for it.
..oh, and the bed must be on the floor!
