    Fans of Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow have created custom jerseys that feature the name "Jesus" displayed above Tebow's number, according to KTVQ.
    While some say the shirts are simply a way to honor the proudly Christian player, others are speaking out against the divine comparison.
    "It's making Tebow out to be a god instead of an athlete," one person told the Christian Post. "I'm happy he's a Christian and isn't afraid to demonstrate that, but for fans to hold him up in such high regard, perhaps comparing him to Jesus, is going too far."
    But in a recent post on Cafe Mom's "The Stir," blogger Jacqueline Burtargues that the shirts are harmless:

    Dear saint tebow fans,
    why can't your lord and savior complete more than 10 passes per game or read a defense? Unless your my cousin chewy it's looks really stoopid to put jesus on the back of a jersey. And people wonder how suckers are suckered into giving charlertain preachers tons of cash.

    Maybe the Broncos just have a huge hispanic following and a lot of their fan's names are Jesus....? I'm just sayin'. :cool:

    IMO, this dude has far surpassed Reggie Bush as the most over-hyped player. Fox can't even run a regular offense because of this dude.

    O-ver-ra-ted *clap clap...clap clap clap*

    I agree......but he just wins! :sarcasm:

    A starting QB who only completes 2 passes in an NFL game is a disgrace to the position. They won't be able to continue to win with him. I never followed him in college, so I don't really know all of the hype, but the guy sure has a huge following.....despite his questionable NFL caliber skills. From what I've seen of highlight clips, he may be better suited for a FB or some kind of tweener. He has football skills, just not QB skills. Maybe they could use him the same way we use Casey.

    Who cares?

    If he didn't want so much "religious attention" maybe he shouldn't slop it on so thick.

    It's starting to get embarrassing. He is far from special. At least Reggie Bush doesn't change an ENTIRE offense due to his unconventional abilities. He is the most hyped player in the HISTORY of sports. I can't think of anyone as hyped? Anyone got any ideas?

    How many games in the NFL has Jesus won?

    That's what I thought you'd say. /thread

    I'm thinking the lord would PROBABLY be a pretty decent pocket passer and being omnicient would mean that no defensive scheme would be able to fool him. While he wouldn't demand a huge salary we all know that he wouldn't play on Sundays.

    He would definitely be a great pocket passer. He would always have a clear passing lane because he would just part the defensive line like the Red Sea. It would be a sight to watch.

    So you're saying that his game wouldn't translate to the NFL level then right?

    Didn't they say that about Tebow too? Hmmmmm :thinking:

    I don't think they are comparing him to Jesus...

    Associating him with Jesus...Yes...

    I bet ratings are big for tonight's Tebow/Jets game...

    And I don't see it happening...

    But if Tebow beats the New York Jets tonight,

    It would be huuuuuge!


    I'll be watching Von Miller & Dumervil speed rush Sanchise, personally.
