Before you jump down Plummer’s throat (especially the Christians) try to understand what he is saying.  A lot of people agree with it, but are scared to say it out loud for fear of the backlash.

What Plummer is saying isn’t unreasonable, but before I give my opinion here is what he had to say.

They have a belief in the kid. That’s really special because they make such a big deal about intangibles and height and arm strength and leaping ability and bench press and 40-time and all this crap that really means nothing when it is crunch time. Tebow, regardless of whether I wish he’d just shut up after a game and go hug his teammates, I think he’s a winner and I respect that about him. I think that when he accepts the fact that we know that he loves Jesus Christ then I think I’ll like him a little better.

I don’t hate him because of that, I just would rather not have to hear that every single time he takes a good snap or makes a good handoff…like you know, I understand dude where you’re coming from….but he is a baller.

Some of this isn’t Tebow’s fault.

Tebow plays terribly for majority of the game, pulls it out in the final minutes and the media holds a sermon. Vince Young plays terribly for majority of the game, pulls it out in the final minutes and no one cares.

Nothing Tebow can do about that, he doesn’t control the media. Do I need to hear about hospitals being built during post game?

Probably not, but that is who he is. Most people who are over the top religious have a little hip hop promoter in them.

Tebow is a lightening rod and that isn’t going to change. The more we talk about the greater the legend grows. As long as he keep winning, he can keep talking about baby lambs.

As long as he is sincere and legit my problem isn’t with Tebow but more the media. Everyone should be covered the same and that isn’t happening, but you should be use to that by now.

    I don’t follow the NFL but I have heard of the Tim tebow stories of his spreading God’s. Word.Keep in mind, as a Christian, tebow is supposed to spread the glory of God’s Love.as a Christian, spreading God’s word is tebow’s primary purpose…not playing football so Mr plummer forgive Mr tebow for what he cares about the most…God, Jesus and telling the world about Him hoping to bring others to their salvation as well.

    Every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord.Tebow is doing the perfect thing which is exhalting the Lord.
