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.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
