Since I nailed the Tebow pick last night (I believe my words were “there is no way if effing hell Tim Tebow will go in the first round or to anyone other than the Jags), I figured I should address the situation today.
I looked at all the post-first-round draft analysis and I found myself very interested in this Tebow pick. I can’t figure it out. I wanted to see what the Broncos’ fans thought about it, so I figured I’d find some stuff and put it all in one place in case you guys were as interested as I was. What I found is that it seems every single Broncos fan with a blog is already drinking the Kool-Aid. Even the negative ones ended up with “I’m excited for him to prove me wrong.” Broncos fans love it and mostly everyone else thinks it was stupid. Seems like Tebow’s uber-polarization continues into the NFL. Here’s some of what people are saying:
Woody Paige, of course, likes the pick and makes sure to go way over the top in describing how much:
The Denver Post might actually be as crazy as Josh McDaniels. They have announced a Tim Tebow Haiku Contest. I wish I could have made that up. A haiku for those of you who don’t remember 5th grade English is a poem with three lines that goes 5 syllables – 7 – 5. Here’s the link for you aspiring poets http://www.denverpost.com/search/ci_14944279
You got Tim Tebow
A haiku contest makes sense
Oh wait it doesn’t
Tim Lynch of Mile High Report goes with the “high character” angle:
Bronco blogger Sadaraine claims to be “Tebow’s Biggest Bronco Critic,” yet still ends up at least sipping on some Kool-Aid: http://www.milehighreport.com/2010/4/23/1438615/a-message-from-tebows-biggest. I’m sorry guys I don’t get it. If Tebow was selected by the Seahawks, I would be finding babies to punch right now. Either way, Sadaraine pointed out a classic Tebow quote from after the selection. God I hate this kid:
“To be honest, I will wear whatever number they want me to wear. If that’s 15, I’ll wear 15. If that’s 95, I’ll wear 95. I don’t really care, just as long as I can wear a Denver Broncos jersey.
