We All Know Tim Tebow Loves Jesus, Says Jake Plummer

In case you missed it, Tim Tebow has been the starting quarterback for the Denver Broncos. In case you haven't heard, he's an Evangelical Christian. These two facts don't always have to be mentioned in succession, says former Broncos quarterback Jake Plummer. And whether you agree or not, if you read closely, this is actually as progressive a compliment as Tim Tebow's received all year.

They have a belief in the kid. That’s really special because they make such a big deal about intangibles and height and arm strength and leaping ability and bench press and 40-time and all this crap that really means nothing when it is crunch time. Tebow, regardless of whether I wish he’d just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates, I think he’s a winner and I respect that about him. I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ then I think I’ll like him a little better.

I don’t hate him because of that, I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff…like you know, I understand dude where you’re coming from….but he is a baller.
