Default Tebow told to STFU!

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com...st-falls-flat/

Tebow's pre-Wonderlic prayer request falls flat

Posted by Mike Florio on March 23, 2010 7:20 PM ET

As we've mentioned once or twice, quarterback Tim Tebow's habit of openly expressing his religious beliefs could potentially rub folks the wrong way, especially in a locker room of grown men who choose to keep their beliefs to themselves, who don't share his beliefs at all, and/or who only want to hear "God bless" after they have sneezed.

We're told that Tebow already has gotten a taste of the resistance he might face at the next level.

At the Scouting Combine, the Wonderlic exam is administered to players in groups. The 12-minute test is preceded by some brief instructions and comments from the person administering the test.

Per a league source, after the person administering the test to Tebow's group had finished, Tebow made a request that the players bow their heads in prayer before taking the 50-question exam.

Said one of the other players in response: "Shut the **** up." Others players in the room then laughed.

We're not passing judgment on this one; we're just passing along what we've heard. And it illustrates the type of challenges that could be faced by the team that drafts Tebow.

That said, some teams might embrace those challenges. The final decision will depend largely on the composition of the team, and the personalities of the coach, the G.M., and the owner.

I heard this on 610 radio yesterday. I think he should not have requested a prayer. If he wanted to pray for himself cool or if others asked him to lead them in prayer. There seems to be no focus on the cursing of the other player who apparently did not have the guts to say "Tim, pray for you and allow us to do what we want." It is amazing that cursing is so readily accepted by people. It is such a "manly" thing to do I guess.

I know he means well, but people like him can be a pain in the neck. They're always trying to save everyone.

I hope the Texans take a good look at the player who told him to STFU... I'm interested in gruff players with cojones.

Tebow would fit in as Kurt Warner's protege. It's a bit late for that though.

Personally, I wouldn't have said STFU. But I would have thought it. And if someone else had said it, I would have laughed.

For me, it was absolutely the wrong time and place to suggest a prayer.

I agree, if Tim fits in well with his new teammates and he wants to lead a prayer for those who are interested, then thats great. But in this situation he was with a bunch of strangers. This is basically no different then randomly doing this while walking down the street one day.

Tim Tebow is a guy i'd find myself punching out there. He's a pushy preacher. Proven time and time again. Even during the Super Bowl.

I don't give a rats ass if he wants to pray. That's not what it's about. It's about him crossing the line and being pushy about it. I do not like Tim Tebow for this reason alone. He'd be the guy I'd give a weekly wedgie topped off with a toilet swirl if we attended school together.

Kid's a heckuva footballer though.

Tim Tebow should look into playing another position or being the jack-of-some-trades type of player. Maybe play a bit of halfback, tight end, quarterback, and linebacker?

Read the link I posted about how Tebow and crew are calling the STFU report false and he only said that to Max Hall

Actually, the link said that there appeared to be conflicting accounts.

At this point, we don't know what really happened. And we probably never will.

I just want to say one thing.

To the fans and everybody in Gator Nation, I'm sorry, extremely sorry.

I promise you one thing, a lot of good will come out of this.

You will never see any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season, and you will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season, and you will never see a team play harder that we will the rest of the season.

God bless.

~Tim Tebow
