I'm not just directing this at you or attacking you. Your comments were just convenient for my comment.
I know this isn't a popular opinion with anyone here because we all have our high opinions of Tebow, but could it possibly be that Tebow really isn't what we think he is?
So many people are so quick to assume there's a huge league-wide conspiracy, but think to yourself, when was the last time you saw ANY player on ANY team that appears to be as unanimously unpopular with both coaches and players as Tebow?! I don't think I can recall one. And I'm not just talking about people not warming up to Tebow, I think we're talking almost extreme hatred in some cases where players are going out of their way to display their dislike. There weren't too many Denver players coming to his defense either.
Could it be that beyond the jealousy many of us assume there is with other players for the media exposure - I happened to see that even now, Tebow is a finalist for favorite athlete on the upcoming Nick Teen Choice Awards - and beyond the coaches not wanting the media circus, that maybe, just maybe, Tebow is a not a nice guy behind the scenes or does something that just rubs people the wrong way? He may be a totally different person in the locker room than the person we believe he is.
I'm not saying that's the case but something about this situation just doesn't add up. I'm just sayin'.
