Yeah, I mean I've taken the sample tests and always get above a 40. Granted I'm not taking it there, but I haven't been in school for 7 years.. only did 2 semesters in college. No excuse to perform that poorly, it's a very simple test.

Ladies and gents I'll be here all night. I think I did hear Tebow say that that never happened, so who knows.
Exactly.

Yeah.

I would just like for people to keep their beliefs to themselves. IMO, if that PFT story is true, that is a bit too much from Tebow. Having an after hours Bible study is great, but spending team time advertising it, announcing it (what he must have done), etc. is too far.

Also I dont buy the whole "this is just because he is a high pick rookie" argument. Bradford was drafted before him. Its a combination of Tebow's beliefs and possible Gator Nation weighing in.

Well, with the info being relatively incomplete for statistical data analysis, we're at a stalemate. Still, given that 30% of the buyers are Floridians, and assuming another 20% are Broncos fans getting their new fix, I still think it is sort of a stretch that there would be that many buyers buying for religious reasons, but that's my speculation.

Re: Tebow leads April jersey sales (McNabb #2)

I'm not buying an NFL jersey for another team unless it's of a family member or close friend, which doesn't look like it will be happening anytime soon. If I loved the kid in college I'll get a college jersey.

Re: Tebow leads April jersey sales (McNabb #2)

Seems we are at an impasse good Sir. I would agree Gator fans are a driving force in these sales as well but i think the additional religious factor is propelling an otherwise so-so jersey.

He'll be good for the NFL just for the charity work he'll do while he's in league, even if he never amounts to much as a player.

With shitheads like Big Ben, Santonio Holmes, Marvin Harrison, Pac Man Jones, and all the other trouble makers, guys like Tebow are good for the NFL, even if he never turns into a star player.

I was speaking of Buster not your hero.

Dude honestly he pushes it on folks at times and you know it. I am in his camp and hope he does well but lets call a spade a spade.

Re: Tebow leads April jersey sales (McNabb #2)

Regardless of the religious angle he's an extremely hyped up player coming out of college. I think that probably has more to do with the jersey sales.

Re: Tebow leads April jersey sales (McNabb #2)

To say that Tebow pushes religion on others because he allegedly suggested everyone say a prayer before taking the Wonderlic test (which apparently was some major deal, yet it's not when the coach or a player gathers everyone together in the locker room for a pre-game prayer) is like saying Kedric Golston pushes alcoholism if he suggests everyone go out for a drink after the game.

Well.....you are correct, no big deal.....except T said it? I can't figure out why people love to hate on the guy. He seems to be the real deal. A good guy who literally practices what he preaches. AND I am sure a zillion media types have been digging for...ANY dirt on him for years. Find any?
Maybe a T hater can...enlighten me on that issue?

Super Bowl ads? Their job is to spread the word of Jesus and they do so and to find more followers. Plain and simple.

Their Super Bowl ad never even mentions the word "God" or "abortion" actually. Sure it was supporting a pro-life Christian group called Focus on the Family, but it definitely wasn't pushing beliefs, it was just his mother sharing her story of her tough pregnancy with Tim. I'm actually pro-choice (with strings attached), but I had no problem with this ad.

I don't get the haters. I just don't. I guess people will find a reason to hate anything. We all talk so much smack about all the criminals and scumbags throughout pro sports. So here's a kid who just gets it, and people still want to bash.
