After Tim Tebow led his team to yet another fourth quarter comeback against the Chicago Bears, many people started to refer to him as “The chosen one,” but after the Broncos lost to The New England Patriots by 18 points yesterday, many people are saying that Tim Tebow is a fluke. So the question is, is Tim Tebow really “the chosen one.”
If you asked 100 people this question, I bet that about 50 would say yes, and about 50 would say no. Although he has led his team to 7 victories in 9 starts, I say for right now that the answer to this question is no. I say this because he has not shown that he can play at his top level for a full four quarter game. He has also not shown any sign that he can compete with the best teams in the league such as the New England Patriots, who they lost to by 18 points yesterday. Another reason that he is not the chosen one is because he has not won a super bowl yet. In every sport, you are never considered amongst the best, until you get a championship ring, so I think that if Tebow wins the championship this year, he will be the chosen one.
Now, onto a different subject, many people have become addicted to the topic of “Tebowing,” what is Tebowing? The definition of the word is, To get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different. This has become not only a phenomenon in Denver, but it has spread all across the country, and even across the world. I don’t know why this has become such a popular thing, but I do know how it started. Every time, that Tim Tebow gets a touchdown or does something good for his team, he gets down on a knee and starts “Tebowing.”
I think that the only reason that Tebow has become such a hot topic, in the USA, and across the world is because he is a different kind of player than we are used to seeing. When have you ever seen a white quarterback, like Tebow, be able to run as fast and take as much punishment as he can? I don’t think that there has ever been anything like it before. People always want different types of players at every position in every sport, for example, if there were 32 Tom Brady’s, or 32 Drew Brees’s in the NFL, the league would be very boring. That is why you need players like Michael Vick, and of course Tim Tebow, because they bring excitement to the league. So, for right now I would say that Tim Tebow is not the chosen one yet, but he very well could be in the near future.
