Tim Tebow Mic’d During NFL Game

I wasn't a huge Tim Tebow fan when he was in college. It had more to do with being a Florida Gator hater than anything else. When he was drafted by the Broncos I just kind of figured that he'd melt away into obscurity like most Heisman trophy winners.

As a football fan, I knew two things about Tebow this year.

  1. He had the #1 selling jersey in the NFL. 
  2. Everyone was watching him. Would he ever play? Would he remain a QB? And doubters wanted to see his life blow up so they could mock his faith.

Due to a lot of circumstances, Tebow got to start last weekend for the Broncos. I like this video because the combination of video and his own audio is kind of a coming of age, in a sporting kind of way. He goes from nervousl greating a bunch of players to telling the coaches at the end of the game that he wanted to ball and the chance to win. 

Tebow's not quite Drew Brees in the NFL. But it's good to see another player willing to step up and lead both on the field and off.

What do you think? Do you like Tim Tebow? Do you think he'll be a long term role model for student-athletes?
