Seriously. If you are not a New England Patriots fan, don't you want "Tebow Time" to keep going? When it comes to "storylines," could there be a bigger one than Tim Tebow versus Aaron Rodgers in the Super Bowl?
It could happen. You can argue that it shouldn't happen, but it could happen. Just ask Patriots guru/coach Bill Belichick, who said of the Broncos this week: "They're a tough team to prepare for because they do a lot of different things. There aren't really any other teams like them in the league, so there's no other team you can really draw that experience from. What they do offensively is a little bit unique."
Translation: Tebow is either the best or worst quarterback we could possibly face and we don't know which one he will be.
Meanwhile, the ESPN Sports Poll said he was America's favorite pro athlete in December, finishing ahead of (in order) Kobe Bryant, Rodgers, Peyton Manning and New England QB Tom Brady. So the only possible match better than Tebow versus Brady would be Tebow versus Rodgers, unless they put Tebow in the NBA All-Star Game.
And as of Wednesday night, @TimTebow had 938,523 followers. (Note: Tebow is following only 50 others and wouldn't you love to know who is on that list?)
Speaking of lists, we have our own reader-generated list that we publish here as a public service to Belichick, Brady and the rest of the Patriots. If Tebow really is receiving help from The Big Fan In The Sky, then it's only right that Belichick get some help, too. Here it is:
Top 10 Tips For Stopping Tim Tebow
10. "Patriots sign a new inside linebacker: Tonya Harding," said Marc S. of New York City. (This was so off the wall and old-school that I couldn't resist.)
9. "Videotape Bronco practices," said Barrett B. of Fort Worth. (Whatever could you mean by that, Barrett?)
8. "Instead of 'Patriots' in the end zone, paint in 'Hell,' 'cause Tebow won't get near it," said Mark M. of Apopka, Fla. and Matthew V. of Alexandria, Va.
