If you don’t like Tim Tebow…you’ve got issues.
Tim Tebow may be the most honorable and Godly man to come out of the world of sports in decades, and that’s saying a lot.
Tebow was a football hero.
After winning a national championship and the Heisman trophy, he is still talked about as one of the greatest college football players of all time.
However, as loud as Tebow’s on-field accomplishments spoke for him, it was his commitment to his God and his faith that truly spoke the loudest about his character.
After graduating college, Tebow was drafted by the Denver Broncos and then after two years in Colorado and another year playing for the Jets, his adventures in the NFL were over. He moved on with his athletic career, opting to play baseball in the New York Mets farm league before retiring earlier this year.
But even in baseball, though the sports were different, the one thing that remained constant was Tebow’s character and commitment to his faith. Tim was often seen praying before and after games, as he was known to do.
When he left baseball, everybody thought that Tebow’s sports career was over and assumed he would take the next logical step and move into ministry or something similar…
But Tebow had something else up his sleeve.
A Career Change For Tim Tebow?
After his old college coach, Urban Meyer, was signed on as the head coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars, Tebow had a private workout with Meyer and an invitation to join the team may be imminent.
Except, instead of a quarterback, it looks like Tebow will be switching positions and playing tight end this time around.
Having Tebow around could be a Godsend (no pun intended), as the new coach’s top draft pick, quarterback Trevor Lawrence, could use the influence of somebody like Tim to help him ease into the pros.
This would be an incredible comeback story for Tebow…if the signing actually happens, that is. But, again, it couldn’t happen to a nicer guy.
But remember, this is 2021, the year where EVERYTHING is controversial. This “feel good” story is getting torn to ribbons on the internet. Liberals are attacking the signing as nothing more than “white privilege” because they feel that Colin Kaepernick wasn’t given the same chance by the NFL.
Kaepernick, as you’ll recall, became the center of sports media attention when he kickstarted the movement of athletes kneeling for the National Anthem as an act of protest. Kaepernick likewise left the NFL only to eventually consider returning.
Never mind the fact that both men held private workouts for their team of choice…
While I can’t say whether Tim Tebow’s workout was stellar or not, I can say that I watched Kaepernick’s workout and saying he “screwed the pooch” would be putting it mildly.
Kaepernick did NOT look like an NFL quarterback during his workout, and so an offer wasn’t extended his way.
The NFL is meritocracy at its finest.
If Kaepernick could help a team win a Super Bowl, you can bet dollars to donuts that he’d have a job right now. The NFL doesn’t care about politics as much as it cares about winning.
There’s a LOT an NFL team will overlook if you’re putting up points and winning games, which is why you KNOW Kaepernick just isn’t the talent he thinks he is.
Of course, this logic hasn’t stopped the Twitter mob from labeling a potential NFL return for Tebow an example of “white privilege.”
The Left’s Collective Heads EXPLODE!
Blue check Twitter users have gone on record saying as much…
David Dennis Jr. (I haven’t a clue who he is, what he does, or why he’s weighing in) said, “There’s no way you can tell me that Tim Tebow deserves to be on a team as an unproven tight end who hasn’t played in 9 years more than Colin Kaepernick. There’s just no way that’s gonna make sense.”

Or Jamele Hill, a contributor for The Atlantic, who said, “::laughs in Colin Kaepernick::”

Then there’s Chris Williamson, a New York news anchor, who said, “My boy @Kaepernick7 can’t get a job though?!!! Tebow been out the league since 2012….”

Again, none of these people seem to have a CLUE about how sports works.
Having a quarterback-turned-tight-end like Tim Tebow compliment an incoming rookie like Trevor Lawrence could be the key to helping the VERY young quarterback transition more smoothly to the NFL, where the game is MUCH faster.
Nobody is talking about that…
Just like nobody is talking about how MANY teams had Tebow listed as a Tight End prospect coming out of college before they ever saw him as a quarterback.
So, to put it simply, no, this isn’t “white privilege.” It’s simply meritocracy at its finest.
Adapt or die, right?
The Left can’t handle that fact.
They simply jump to race…
Telling you all you need to know about life in 2021.
“You can’t lose confidence in yourself, or you’ve lost already. When you get knocked down, you’ve got to keep getting back up.” – Tim Tebow
Belief in yourself. That’s the key to succeeding in life. Tim Tebow is a direct example of this, and as a result, he’s had success wherever he goes. Of course, he’s not the only person who’s succeeded simply by having faith in his abilities. Have you heard the story about the single mom who shunned the so-called “experts” and started investing for herself? The story is compelling—especially when you learn just how successful she has become. Watch this incredible success story here.
