Well, by now, even the biggest haters have to admit: Tim Tebow is the real deal. A phenomenon.
There's no pretending it's a fluke; no muddying the waters with attacks on the man's beliefs (and face it, if the Jesus talk was such a problem, why is it only now, with Tebow, that it's being called out, and not during those countless years every other NFL or NBA player thanked Jesus and God for every touchdown or made play).
No, the hate on Tebow was something else - even beyond his unorthodox play (it's telling that people that praise the unorthodox to no end in every other situation suddenly had a problem with it with Tebow).
No, the hate was beyond all that, and it told more about the haters than even they knew.
Tebow is the real deal. The lowest fumble percentage, the lowest turnovers, and the ability to get the job done.
And all of this seems to surprise Tebow the least of all. That's why he is and will be a great quarterback.
