Is Tim Tebow The New Role Model The Nfl?

One has to wonder if when New York made the decision to trade for Tim Tebow if they had figured they were acquiring someone who would put the franchise in the spotlight both as a player and as a spokesman for the league. Is Tim Tebow the new role model of the NFL?

Tebowing in the park.

Tim Tebow spoke at an Easter gathering Sunday in Georgetown Texas that drew a crowd estimated at over 15,000 people. Some were heard saying it was more like a rock concert with 10 buses shuttling people to the grounds from local shopping area parking lots.. One thing Mr. Tebow made clear is that in his opinion NFL players are role models and heroes to today's youth, and their behavior should be with keeping this in mind. With all the players that have been in the news for their not so pure behavior, I for one agree with this mans views and say it is about time the NFL players realize that how they conduct themselves in the public eye can be a huge influence on today's youth.

Is the just a trend?

I believe that weather Mr. Tebow succeeds as a player in the NFL or not will not make much difference in his off field successes. This man is off to greatness in many areas and New York has made the best marketing choice a team could make to get back some credibility in the NFL

Why so much attention to a back up quarterback?

The million dollar question for sure, Tim has brought what has been missing from major sports, as sense of right and wrong. Along with the power of riches and the constant attention today's players receive it is easy to see why the attitude of being above the law can develop.Maybe a dose of humble honesty is just what major sports needs.

Is this just good marketing?

While I am sure some of this is well timed marketing on the part of both the Jets and Mr. Tebow, I do believe his sincerity in pointing out common sense issues are genuine. one woman was overheard Sunday as saying she was a die hard Broncos fan until Tim was traded to new York, and now she is a Jets fan. Others are saying they will follow Tim wherever he may go. For a man with the limited NFL resume, remember he is a back up quarterback, these are pretty powerful choices people are making concerning Mr. Tebow.

I for one look forward to following Tebow's career, and this story has the makings of some serious changes in how people look at sports figures. Can Tim just be himself and not get lost in all that comes along with being a celebrate? Let the Tebowing begin.

Tebow definitely adds something the Jets are lacking - respectability. Sorry to the Jets fans out there, but they definitely need a better image and if they utilize Tebow properly, they were get it.

The man should be admired, too many sportsman now have the attitude of I'm rich and above the law. The financial packages bandied about today make some of these sportsman believe they a mini Gods, and that people should worship them to extreme. This guy sounds great with a level head and a foot on the ground. Good article.
