The media's obsession with Tim Tebow is a head-shaker. Who is Tim Tebow? He is a) a Christian, and quite outspoken about it; b) a borderline NFL talent who just signed a deal with a pretty good team for what will probably be a gig as a third-string quarterback.
Neither A nor B is particularly unusual in modern society, nor is the combination of the two. Surely there have been other third-string quarterbacks who were Christians and didn't mind saying so. But for some reason, the combination as it lives and breathes in the form of Tim Tebow drives the media bananas, such that they can't stop talking about every move he makes, and what everyone around him thinks of it.

Dungy's words come as an introduction to his short video clip on the All Pro Dad website in which he says, "Tim Tebow, I know, is really disappointed that he hasn't got it going and on a team, in a direction, knowing what locker room he is going to be in right now, but the advice I'd have for Tim is just to be patient, be faithful, the Lord has a good spot for you, He's going to give you the right situation. more >>
