Thank God the Jets Took Tim Tebow
It has been a great couple of weeks for the Bills. The Sabres are fighting for their playoff lives but yet the Bills have stolen the spotlight. It’s exciting, isn’t it?
But I have to say, I had a feeling in the pit of my stomach and it wasn’t good. You see, when the Denver Broncos signed Peyton Manning (P.S. super happy he didn’t go to Miami!), my sister in Denver said she was hearing talk about Tebow coming to Buffalo.
Ugh. No, thank you.
I’ll be honest with you, I like Tim Tebow, I really do. I hope he succeeds in the league. I hope he continues to steal the spotlight from the evil Tom Brady. But I don’t want him on my team.
With Tebow comes a circus—and not just from the media. And, let’s be honest, he’s not a starting quarterback.
Plus, I really believe that his fans are ruining his career. A number of his fans like him because of his religion and not his skills. That creates a problem. You see, posting billboards to get him the starting position in Denver was fun and all, but he wasn’t ready. Sure, they made the playoffs and beat the Steelers, but he had help. A lot of it. And I’m not talking about help from the man upstairs. His fans push and push. It turned off a lot of teams. It turned off a lot of Bills fans.
And let’s face it, you know Bills fans would do the same thing if he was here and Fitzy wasn’t playing well. We’re suckers for backup quarterbacks (except for you, Tyler Thigpen. Sorry.). We’re a “the grass is always greener” kind of fan base.
So, I’m happy that Tebow isn’t here. I wish him luck in New York. I’m scared for him, though. Good thing he’s got a higher power on his side. He’s definitely going to need him.
