Tebow Continues to Be a Class Act

Are you ready for some football?

September 5 is right around the corner and the Tebow naysayers are beginning their attacks.

CBS broadcaster and former NFL quarterback, Boomer Esiason, seems to have it out for Tebow. After telling us last year that Tebow doesn’t know what he is doing on the football field, now he wants the Jets to cut Tebow. Basically, Esiason doesn’t think Tebow is good enough to be a quarterback in the NFL-this from a man who earned his nickname by kicking his mom in the womb!

How did Tebow respond? With his usual humility and grace.

“I’ve heard nothing but great things about Mr. Esiason. I know he was a great player here, and I just wish him nothing but the best in his announcing, and God bless him,” “I just continue to use that (criticism) as motivation.”


Honestly, I don’t even care how Tebow plays this year (I am a Bears fan anyway!). I just love the fact that he refuses to engage in negativity. His responses are refreshing.

I can learn from this guy.

So thanks again Tim Tebow for reminding us that we don’t trade insults for insults. In a culture that reinforces trash talking and putting the other guy down to make you feel better, Tebow reminds us what our faith is supposed to look like–bless those who curse us (Matthew 5:44).
