Tebow hype like a kick in the nuts

The more Tim Tebow is hyped up, the more my system attempts to shut down and stop breathing like some bitter ex-girlfriend just hauled off and kicked me square in the nut sac….with the pair of pointy-toed boots I bought her last Halloween.

Seriously, enough already, please! And I don’t say “please” often.

While Bible pushers around the country give praise and worship No. 15 on the Denver Broncos, the rest of the sports world has about had enough of this shit.

Tebow’s stats speak loudly for one side of the debate. Yeah his defense was stout enough to keep the floundering Tebow offense in games long enough for Tebow to do a little Tebowing and ask the invisible spirits floating around in Denver for a comeback.

Some may believe those spirits turned their back on starving children in Africa and military personnel who are struggling trying to adapt to their new artificial limbs, compliments of a war that if there were a God, he wasn’t able to stop.

Enough of the rhetoric; let’s hit the meat and potatoes, the gut of this whole debate that was created by networks like ESPN for ratings sake.

The NFL is clearly a passing league and to be a respected, top quarterback you’re required to have a strong arm and throw “spirals” on target; two attributes Tim lacks to say the least.

Tebow’s stats don’t lie.

He’s dead last in the entire league in passing percentage with a 48.0 rating to start. Take a look at the rest of the embarrassing marks on his “resume” here.

While fans in Denver and Gainesville Florida want to Christian Tebow as the new savior, players and writers around the league aren’t buying into the hype.

After getting “Tebowed” by the Broncos, Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher took a shot at the fabricated star saying, “He’s a good running back, man. He runs the ball well.” That he does but to be named a second alternate for the 2012 Pro Bowl is a mockery of the voting system and the league.

There is one guarantee though; a man lacking ability as Tim does, will not survive as a starter in the NFL.

So all the Tebow-loving, ass-kissing, jump-on-the-bandwagon fair weathered fans who are buying No. 15 jerseys and plastering the name “Jesus” on the back, enjoy this short-lived revival while you can.

The rest of us will sit back and later say, “See, I told you so.”
