‘Tebow Mania’ Was Fun While it Lasted

Tim Tebow.

The mention of the name draws responses that range from adoration to pure hate. It is tough to go one day watching ESPN without hearing a mention of his name, let alone a segment devoted to him.

The extensive coverage was a leading cause for those who despised him to have those feelings, but that it not the fault of Tim Tebow.

Nothing that Tim Tebow has done in his short NFL career should warrant negative feelings from anyone. Even if Tebow took down your favorite team in the form of a last minute touchdown drive, it is wrong to hate him. Respect would be a more proper feeling to possess.

The Tebow haters will always point to his stats and say how terrible of a quarterback he is. Disregard the stats. Tim Tebow led his team to the playoffs after Kyle Orton led them to a dismal start of 1-4. He finished the year 7-4 in the regular season, which was good enough for a division title.

During this span, a movement was born. #Tebowing. #Tebow 3:16. #TebowTime. #TebowMania. The list goes on and on.

Tim Tebow is more than just an NFL quarterback. His name represents far more than just the name of Denver’s starting quarterback. Hearing his name might lead some to get on one knee and begin praying. It is tough to think of any other athlete who has garnered such a following, both positive and negative, as Tebow has.

So why Tim Tebow? Why does he garner all the coverage, when he has historically poor stats at a position that is the most important in his profession? He wins.

Tim Tebow wins games. No matter how he does it, he can usually find a way to get his team a victory. His late game touchdown drives became nothing out of the ordinary. When Marion Barber ran out of bounds, when staying in would have given the Bears a sure victory, it did not seem all too crazy.

Then came the playoffs. The talking heads who doubted Tebow all season were certain that the Steelers would take care of business in Denver. Once Demaryius Thomas crossed the goal-line on the first play of overtime to defeat the Steelers, those doubters were proven wrong once again.

Tebow Mania was alive and well during the past week, but it was seemingly a foregone conclusion that it would come to an end in Foxboro. The Patriots were the #1 team in the AFC, and had already beaten the Broncos once this season.

As it turned out, Saturday night was not one to remember for Tebow and the Broncos. The Pats’ scored early and often en route to their 45-10 victory. It was an ugly defeat for Denver, but the season was not a disappointment.

The Broncos advanced as far in the playoffs as the Packers, Saints, and Texans. They bowed out against the #1 seed in the AFC, and arguably all of football. Denver really did not stand a chance in New England, but there was still hope.

Now that Denver’s season is over all the speculation regarding Tebow’s job security will start up again. Has he not proven enough to keep his starting role? He may not be the prototypical quarterback, but he did lead his team to one of their most memorable seasons that did not end in a Super Bowl title.

Denver was given new energy as a town, and they have a new athlete to rally around. Carmelo Anthony left to go have a mediocre season in New York, and a new #15 took his place. This #15 has done nothing to lose his job, and I am sure that the fans agree.

Tim Tebow is adored in Denver, and football fans all over the country would love to have him on their team. Hopefully, Denver’s front office will realize this fact, and let Tebow Mania continue on in 2012.
