Tebow vs. Brady
Published on December 19, 2011 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I offer my thoughts on Sunday's Broncos-Patriots showdown.

Here's an excerpt:

"I like Tim Tebow. He seems like a nice enough kid, friendly and enthusiastic, sort of like a puppy dog quarterback. No, it’s not Tim Tebow I have a problem with. It’s his most ardent fans, and the ridiculous sports coverage that accompanies his every move. The build-up for the Patriots-Broncos game was intense, and I knew things had finally gone too far when ESPN posted a poll asking the utterly absurd question: 'Who would you rather have at quarterback, Tim Tebow or Tom Brady?'

Um, I’ll take the Hall of Fame quarterback with three Superbowl rings over the quirky guy with seven pro wins and the weird throwing mechanics. I mean, seriously. Why is this an actual question? Is it because people like Jerry Angelo, the general manager of the Chicago Bears Football Club, say utterly ridiculous things when asked about Tebow, such as: 'I believe that there is some divine intervention associated with what’s taking place.' Or Chuck Klosterman writing, 'His faith in God, his followers’ faith in him — it all defies modernity. This is why people care so much. He is making people wonder if they should try to believe things they don’t actually believe.' Really? Tim Tebow’s 7-2 record has the power to trigger a religious conversion? Maybe Denver just has a good defense, and has benefited from a soft schedule."
