Tim Tebow has a signed a one-year deal to play football for the Philadelphia Eagles. Very controversial for his unabashed Christianity, all Tebow has done is win everywhere he has played!
Tebow became the Florida Gators‘ starting quarterback during the 2007 season when he became the first college sophomore to win the Heisman Trophy. In 2008, Tebow led Florida to a 13–1 record and its second national championship in three years, and was named the offensive MVP of the national championship game. The Gators again went 13–1 in 2009, his senior year. At the conclusion of his college career, he held the Southeastern Conference‘s all-time records in both career passing efficiency and total rushing touchdowns, appearing second and tenth (respectively) in the NCAA record book in these categories.
As a member of the Denver Broncos, he started the last three games of his rookie season and became the team’s full-time starting quarterback beginning in the sixth game of 2011. The Broncos were 1–4 before he became the starter, but began winning with him on the field, often coming from behind late in the fourth quarter, until they won their first AFC West title and first playoff game since 2005, defeating thePittsburgh Steelers in overtime.
Good for Tim Tebow! Good for the Philadelphia Eagles! Good for Christians who love football! Good for football fans everywhere who love watching talented athletes excel on and off the field! Good for parents looking for a solid, decent role model for their children! Good for the game of football!
Not everyone is so happy, however. Christian haters from across the country took the news as an opportunity to bash Tebow and all Christians via Twitter. How loving and tolerant, yet expected, of the liberal, progressive crowd.
Tim Tebow? I cannot stand that Bible thumper.

Tim Tebow makes money off his Christian image and if you think differently, watch his trash ass keep getting signed and paraded around.
