This, or any, Monday wouldn’t be complete without a heartwarming little Tim Tebow story. And since he once again had a hand a rather dramatic finish, I figured it was probably time to show Tebow a little love around here. In full disclosure, I’m anything but a Tebow fan. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of the guy. I’m just not a fan of the football player with Tebow on the back of his jersey. The Tebow hype and hyperbole is more than I can stomach; and I truly feel sorry for his teammates having to field questions about how a 10 for 21 performance was somehow “heroic.” That said, he and his Bronco teammates are compiling quite a list of unexpected and somewhat miraculous victories; and Sunday’s performance may be at or near the top.
Payday for Tebow?
Being that he played 73 percent of Denver’s plays this season, Tebow cashed in on a quarter-million salary escalator for Sunday’s 29-23 overtime victory and could earn another $250,000 with another victory Saturday night at New England against the Patriots in a divisional-round game.
