Tim Tebow Is A Garbage Pail Kid


For the two or three of you that have made a habit of reading more than the headlines of my blog posts, you may recall that I have occasionally authored posts about "personal branding" as it relates to athletes and celebrities.

By all objective statistical measures, Tim Tebow is AT BEST a slightly below average NFL quarterback. However, for reasons that are inexplicable, the Denver Broncos have won all but one game that Tebow has started this year with almost every single win occurring in dramatic fourth quarter comebacks. As noted by one esteemed author on the always entertaining sports/cultural commentary website, Grantland, Tim Tebow is the “most (curious, complicated, downright strange) polarizing athlete of our age;” his status as such likely being attributable to his outward(although not necessarily overbearing) Christian beliefs and his penchant for succeeding where rational analysis suggests that he should fail.
