    to not really be aware of what's going on "out there"

    You know, what with believing in imaginary girlfriends (not Tebow), an imaginary friend in the sky (Tebow), etc. . . ..

    So I don't think we can say one way or another about this.

    •  for even a mediocre NFL career it takes (4+ / 0-)

      years of focusing on the prize while people all around you fail.  Fewer than 1% of HS players have a real shot at the big times and the average career is 4 years.

      No wonder pro players grow up in a bubble; at least they earned their bubble, unlike legacy babies  

      •  As an aside, he did not *earn* his chance (0+ / 0-)

        as the starting QB at Denver. He leaped over the second string quarterback because of public pressure from the Tebow-maniacs. Say what you will about how he performed once he was there, but the chance to start- that he did not earn.

        And true enough, making it to the NFL is a rare, rare talent.
        Is Tebow an NFL level quarterback? Sure as hell not a starting one, not anybody's franchise answer.
