http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2010/03/23/tebows-pre-wonderlic-prayer-request-falls-flat/?related=1

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 f--k 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.



And I found this today and have never seen it.

I agree, there are christians that want to convert everyone and people who let their actions speak for their faith and there are also the ones who talk the talk but then have moments of weakness and cheat or go on benders etc...

To me I feel the same way about Christians as I do gays. I don't think there is any thing wrong with being either as long as you don't try to convert me or talk about you faith/sexual preference.

Christians are instructed to spread the gospel. Hearing it is not a conversion attempt, and no one can make you change faiths simply because they ask for a minute to pray.

It does wierd me out when people pray at meals or say God bless after everything; but for some people this is just an expression of the faith they have. If its an honest expression, then that is just who that person is and everyone involved with them should just expect it.

For the kid who told him to shut the **** up, he needs to grow up. There was no reason to say that. And from the sounds of it, more men in the NFL are expressive about their faith then not. Dawkins, Carr, Warner, Lewis, Brunell and Delhomme are examples I can think of right off the top of my head.

Well, obviously the guy wanted to force everyone into doing a prayer so it was affecting him.

Am I the only one that hates those awkward moments when someone calls for a prayer and you don't really want to participate? In the military, they seem to pray before everything.

I personally wish I could believe in Christian beliefs. I just can't. There's too many holes and too many things I question (from stories to ethics and principles of various religions) so I can't. I wish I could, but I can't. Don't throw that in my face by trying to push religion on me even further and making me participate in your prayers. Until they can tell me why such things as dinosaur fossils in the ground and other very numerous inconsistencies with the bible exist, they need to just go away and keep their beliefs to themselves.

What I don't understand is why the people in the room laughed. Tebow asked the person in charge, not this idiot. If he was so offended by it, I'm sure he couldve stepped out while the prayer went on. People, nowadays, feel the need to ridicule others in order to make themselves feel worthy of some attention.
I do However think that religion has its place.

Why couldn't Tim Tebow not put his head down, shut up and say a prayer to himself?

What if the person next to Tim Tebow was a Muslim and asked the same question? Or a Jew? Or Mormon? Would the players have taken turns leaving the room while each person had their fair shot at prayer in your eyes?

I'd like to know his wonderlic score.

Growing up playing a lot of basketball, there were often moments of prayer. However, they were all held before and away from any game. The coach or player who wanted to conduct the session would inform people who wanted to participate that a prayer meeting would occur 30 minutes to an hour before the game at X location. Simple enough, you either went or you didn't.

Tebow could've done the same and therefore showed respect to his fellow man by giving them the opportunity for group prayer but not putting anyone in an awkward position right before taking a test.

That being said... no need to tell him to "Shut the **** up." Just tell him to shut up.

Yes! He asked for a prayer, right? He didn't ask them to pray to God, Jesus or any specific entity. Who they chose to pray to (if they opt to pray) once their eyes are shut is entirely up to them.

Oh noes! Someone said a prayer! By doing that he's enslaving people around him to his views! It's like he just baptized everyone in the room and made them celebate for the rest of their lives! Oh the heavy yoke that must be bore when someone prays nearby!!! It's akin to slavery, I tell you! How can we tolerate such belligerent behavior?!?!?!

It's always funny to me that the atheists get all up in arms about this stuff. On the one hand they talk about how pointless religion is, how it's meaningless and a waste of time and does nothing... but THEN when someone *gasp* prays or makes reference to God in their presence, they go on their "OMG! OMG!!!! he-actually-PRAYED-in-front-of-me-i'm-being-repressed-even-though-I-just-said-its-meaningless-voodoo-but-really-I'm-scared-religion-will-give-me-cooties-and-turn-me-into-frog!!!!" act.

Ohhh Tebow just said a prayer?

I read that antidote and interpreted it as Tebow, just before taking a test (probably very stressful to some), requested the entire room take a moment, bow their heads and pray.

Would it have been that hard for Tebow to just bow his own head, pray and let the rest of the room go about their own way of preparing for the test?

Talk about going overboard...

So who put the asshat who told him to shut the **** up in charge? I find it funny that most people who posted in this thread feel the jerkoff who swore is not at fault, while Tebow was "way out of line" for doing something he is known for.

If the article is even true. The more I think about it the more it sounds made up.

Would it be that hard for them to say "no thanks" and just move on? It's not like he has any authority or can make them do that and it's not like anyone will think less of them if they don't pray with Tebow before the test. Is this really a big deal?

Here is the thing:

I don't mind Tebow leading a prayor, but asking the person who is in charge of giving the test or saying out loud to the group is kind of brown noseish and is not cool to me. Especially for QB's, that test is important. It is stressful.

If I were in that room, I wouldn't say anything but I wouldn't appreciate it. We get it, you are a holy roller. You are the boy that lived because your mom chose not to abort. You are the Greatest player in College Football History. But going out of your way to try to show up others is very uncool.

The guy that told Tebow to STFU is not cool either, but I understand.

If Tebow wanted to pray in a group he could do so before he went in, asking the others individually before hand if they wanted to join him.

Tebow denies Wonderlic incident

Posted by Mike Florio on March 24, 2010 6:04 PM ET
So I had a telephone conversation today with quarterback Tim Tebow.

Ever heard of him?

He reached out, via agent Jimmy Sexton, in response to Tuesday night's story regarding the incident during the Wonderlic testing at the Scouting Combine. As a league source told us, Tebow said something in the testing room about saying a prayer. And then another player said something in response. And then some of the other players laughed.

But Tebow says it didn't happen.

"Not one single word of it is true," Tebow told me.

Tebow has a very genuine and disarming way about him. There's an innocence and kindness in his voice that conflicts with the image of a highly successful college quarterback, who was arguably one of the best college football players of all time.

He was nevertheless firm and resolute in his denial.

"One of the number one things for me is being someone of character and when I say something people can take it to the bank," Tebow said. "That story is absolutely not true."

Tebow then named several of the other players who were in the room, and he invited me to check his version with each of them.

Tebow explained that he said nothing to the group of roughly 100 players, and he said that he spoke only to BYU quarterback Max Hall.

After talking to Tebow, I immediately contacted the source for the story, who agreed with my assessment that Tebow is "the real deal." But the source didn't back down.

It's possible that Tebow made a comment intended for Hall that was overheard by another player, who then made a profane comment in response that was not heard by Tebow. Still, Sexton told me in a follow-up e-mail that Tebow "never said anything remotely close" to what had been attributed to him.

We'll keep digging on this one. We're confident that our source didn't make it up, but we were impressed by Tebow's willingness to reach out and explain his position. Though I'm usually even more skeptical when someone tells me multiple times in a seven-minute conversation that he always tells the truth, when Tebow said it I believed it.

That said, there has to be a way to harmonize the two stories. Tebow believes he's telling the truth, and I believe our source. We'll keep after this one and report back when we have more.

On a personal level...Tebow reminds me of another great Gator QB, Danny Wuerffel. Hopefully Tim will try to match all the wonderful things Danny did for people in the name of his faith. I dislike the Gators, but I have a ton of respect for those two guys....especially Wuerffel...what a great person.

My question:

Who cares?

If the stories true:

Tebow chose to express his opinion.

Some others expressed theirs in laughter.

Others chose not to express theirs with silence.
