Tebow Hurt By Criticism Of His Character,
Insists He Never Asked Out Of Anything

CBSNewYork/AP, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:PLPointer67, 12/27/2012 5:20:13 AM

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Tim Tebow said that he never asked out of running Wildcat plays last week, but the Jets’ backup quarterback acknowledges that Rex Ryan may have misunderstood him. Tebow said on Wednesday that he told Ryan last Tuesday that he was “definitely disappointed” he wasn’t going to be the starting quarterback in place of the benched Mark Sanchez, and added that he told the coach he wanted to play “regular quarterback.” “I never said, ‘Hey, I don’t want to do anything,’” Tebow said.

Comments:
What strikes me is that in this ´upside down´ world, many Stars (& reporters) could care less about their ´character.´ It´s a foreign word to them.

We wonder if Mr. Tebow would be treated the same way if he were in a racial minority group.

Mr. Tebow is in a minority group - Christian man with moral standing, love of God, and work ethic - everything progressives hate.

Tebow may not be the best QB in football, but he is definitely one of the best role models and persons. The media scum love to take down such a decent man--and it is sick.

O.P. -- it reminds me of high school in the ´70s, when a guy who openly pursued keeping his nose squeaky clean was ´uncool´ enough to be anathema, and when a guy who strove to remain a virgin until marriage was looked upon with mistrust or even accused of being gay.

Tebow the QB? meh.
Tebow the competitor and team leader? yeh.
Tebow the human being? above and beyond.

I hope Tim remembers Luke 6:22 and Matthew 5:11-12a when he gets grief like this week.

Excellent citation! Here it is:

Luke 6:22
New International Version (NIV)
22 Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.

Another good Scripture verse is 1 Peter 2:20-23. Tim Tebow will do just fine. Just as a metal is purified and made stronger and more valuable after being heated over hot coals, so Tim will come out of this much stronger. He has been a terrific role model for kids to emulate. I had a sister who once worked in the office of a newspaper, and she said the morals there were like those of an alley cat. Which might be why Tim receives so much vitriol from the media - they can´t stand the comparison.

# 2 , I agree with you. I am a fan of Tebow, he is a class act and being treated terrible. I hope he can go to a team that will appreciate him.

Tim Tebow is a man of great grace. The Jets are treating him very poorly because he is a Christian. How sad, given that so many NFL players are soulless creeps.

I played a little bit of football. (The older I get, the better I was.)
And as a lineman, I blocked for dropback qbs and also for scrambling qbs. It is much more difficult to block for scrambling qbs - almost freelancing, instead of following blocking assignments.
So in order for a scrambling, running qb to be successful, he must have a line willing to do the nontraditional blocking.
Separate from that, though, is that a person who shows his Christianity is not cool. (A muslim, however, is cool when he shows his religion.)
And Merill Hoge had to give up the game because of several severe concussions. I think there may be some early signs of a brain disorder because of his history. Sort of like Joe Biden. They just say stuff.

The apples from the "Buddy Ryan" tree don´t fall far from the tree!
Buddy was one who fell in love with his press clippings--remember when Da Coach and buddy almost got into fisticuffs during superbowl 85.
time for the billies to head back to the hills!

The NFL has become politicized.
I have lost all interest in it.
Bye.

The surface of the sun erupted in a solar flare early Friday, unleashing a blast of super-heated plasma into space. A huge sunspot known as AR1654 produced the M1-class flare at 4:11 a.m. EST, officials with NASA´s Solar Dynamics Observatory said in a description of the event. The SDO spacecraft is one of several sun-watching space telescopes keeping tabs on solar flares and other sun weather events. According to Spaceweather.com, sunspot AR1654 is growing more active and is now "crackling with M-class solar flares" like the one that erupted today. "AR1654 is getting bigger as it turns toward Earth,"

(snip) "Following a series of setbacks including a persistent fever, President Bush was admitted to the intensive care unit at Methodist Hospital on Sunday where he remains in guarded condition," McGrath said. "Doctors at Methodist continue to be cautiously optimistic about the current course of treatment."

Boeing Uses New Testing Tool - Potatoes

If the wireless Internet connection during your holiday flight seems more reliable than it used to, you could have the humble potato to thank. While major airlines offer in-flight Wi-Fi on many flights, the signal strength can be spotty. (Snip) Engineers at Chicago-based Boeing used sacks of potatoes as stand-ins for passengers as they worked to eliminate weak spots in in-flight wireless signals. They needed full planes to get accurate results during signal testing, but they couldn’t ask people to sit motionless for days while data was gathered. “That’s where potatoes come into the picture,” Boeing spokesman

PYONGYANG, North Korea — North Korea said Friday that a US citizen has been detained after confessing to unspecified crimes, confirming news reports about his arrest at a time when Pyongyang is facing criticism from Washington for launching a long-range rocket last week. The man was identified as Pae Jun Ho in a brief dispatch issued by the state-run Korean Central News Agency in Pyongyang. News reports in the United States and South Korea said Pae is known in his home state of Washington as Kenneth Bae, a 44-year-old tour operator of Korean descent.

MIAMI — A Marine veteran jailed for months in Mexico after trying to carry a family heirloom shotgun across the border has been freed, officials and his lawyer said late Friday. The attorney for Jon Hammar tweeted Friday night his client had been released from a detention center in Matamoros, Mexico. U.S. officials were planning to drive Hammar, 27, across the border at Brownsville, Texas. “He’s out. Going home,” Eddie Varon Levy wrote in a tweet. U.S. Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, R-Fla.,

It was the Year of the Big Tuna in sportfishing, so it’s appropriate that 2012 end with the International Game Fish Association approving the 427-pound yellowfin caught in September by Dana Point’s Guy Yocom as the new all-tackle world record. The IGFA announced that the giant tuna Yocom caught while fishing on his boat, El Suertudo (The Lucky One), approximately 100 miles off Cabo San Lucas, is the new standard for yellowfin. Yocom’s catch broke the record of 405.2 pounds set in 2010 by Mike Livingston of Sunland aboard Mike Lackey’s boat, the Vagabond, out of Point Loma Sportfishing.

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

Megyn Kelly’s "Kelly File" is a great news show. She’s incisive, informed and customarily handles the toughest guest with aplomb. But her lengthy interview of Facebook C.O.O. Sheryl Sandberg about her second book in the Lean In series Lean In: For Graduates was a head shaker. Amazing that she of all people allowed Sandberg to restring the same old, same old, shamed, and shopworn feminist myths about women and girls and then jangle it in front of her viewing audience like something new out of the box. Indeed Kelly all but genuflected in front of this woman. Kept her on thru

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Casual marijuana use may come with some not-so-casual side effects. For the first time ever, researchers at Northwestern University have analyzed the relationship between casual use of marijuana and brain changes – and found that young adults who used cannabis just once or twice a week showed significant abnormalities in two important brain structures. The study’s findings, to be published Wednesday in the Journal of Neuroscience, are similar to those of past research linking chronic, long-term marijuana use with mental illness and changes in brain development. Dr. Hans Breiter, co-senior study author, said he was inspired to look at the effects of casual

Like him or hate him, there is no disputing that Rush Limbaugh’s very special brand of mixing right-wing politics with his flare for entertainment has produced one of the most successful radio programs in the medium’s long history. Whatever the burning political question of the day, millions of Americans have relished the opportunity to tune into Rush’s program, knowing that he would quickly take that hot potato, throw a few gallons of verbal kerosene into the mix and elevate the matter into a five alarm fire with a just a few well-chosen words spoken in the style only Rush Limbaugh could

Look, everyone loves Sean Connery, particularly Sean Connery. That’s why he plays Sean Connery in every movie he’s in. People love that Scottish brogue so much, they don’t mind that he has it when he plays Juan Sánchez Villa-Lobos Ramírez, an immortal Spaniard in Highlander. The guy even won an Oscar for playing an Irish cop with a Scottish accent. Talk about sexist double standards: Meryl Streep has to master foreign dialects to get her golden statuettes. Connery just has to show up on time. In economics you devalue a currency by printing too much of it. In film you
