Says:

- Not too concerned about new coach. Just focusing on what he can control and working hard.
- Says he is improving, has improved footwork, throwing motion and reads.
- Weirdest fan reaction was in Jacksonville - boos and cheers at same time.
- Has signed more than one baby.
- Has talked to Elway who is very supportive and has a great relationship with John. Excited to have him in the office.
- Found out about Urban Meyer stepping down when Urban called him right before the announcement.
- Could not see Urban coaching in the NFL because he says Meyer likes helping mould the highschool kids.
- Advice for Andrew Luck would be to keep doing what he's doing and take every opportunity. Don't listen to praise or criticism.

- When other players talk trash, he'll drop a "god bless," or "Jesus loves you."
-Also talks about upcoming documentary on ESPN.

Pretty crappy interview by DP. Soft. No questions about Orton. Not much about thoughts on new coach. Nothing about McDaniels or how he looks at things now that he is gone.

Does anybody else ever worry that Tebow could wake up one morning and decide to ditch football and start doing missionary work?

Wow. You speak for everybody. What a responsibility.

BTW, it was not intended as a disparaging remark. Tebow is obviously as passionate about his religious views as he is about football. I wonder if he ever feels conflicted about it? Some people are drawn to what they regard as a "calling" and decide that has priority in their lives.

Some people sure are touchy about this guy. :oyvey:

All things I was hoping he'd address. Not that you'll ever get a juicy sound bite out of Tebow, though.

Yeah, he wouldn't even answer who he thought would be a better pro QB, Luck or Cam Newton. And when DP asked what his feelings were on a new QB, he just answered he can't control that and he'll just keep working hard.

Actually Rohirrim would be thrilled if that happened.

It's a legit question, though. Glen Coffee did this very thing. I think he's the exception, not the rule, and while I don't doubt Tebow will have a personal ministry, I expect he understands this is a great opportunity to build a nest egg to continue what he believes is God's work.

Once again, Tebow isn't the first Christian, pro-life football player who is open about his beliefs and he isn't the last. He's not even the most outspoken on the team.

Believe me, if Tebow becomes an elite QB for the Broncos and allows us to create a dynasty of championships I will be the happiest person around. At this point, I'm sceptical.

I think it's a pretty fair assumption, given your apparent views on Tebow recently.

Reggie White comes to mind as someone I'd compare Tebow to. Faith wise that is.

I don't worry about Tebow leaving the NFL abruptly to take up ministry. I think at some point he will do that, but in this season of his life it's about football.

And to be honest, he can play football and reach millions of young and old people in a ministry sense...just by the way he carries himself is a testament to his faith and that reaches possibly far more than he would if he just dropped football and did ministry.

Really? What are my "views" on Tebow?

Anyway, I hadn't thought of Reggie White. That's a good example. He played his whole career and then started his own ministry.

As far as my "views" go, there are some people on this forum, drama llama specifically, who use Tebow to forward their own religious agenda on this forum. That, I find sleazy and will comment on it whenever I see it, as is my right. I don't see Tebow doing anything much more overt than what many other players do. I find some of it annoying, like the "point to the sky" thing, but not that big of a deal.

On the other hand, I am sceptical that Tebow can become an elite NFL QB, which is what I want for the Broncos. That scepticism gets attacked by those who seem to want to worship the guy as some kind of "all or nothing" thing. I don't look at it that way at all.

I come from a long line of Christians. One priest and two nuns in the family. I'm only opposed to the modern strain of "love it or leave it" American Christianity that thinks it isn't happening unless it gets shoved in everybody's face; The kind that says, "My way or the highway" that's so popular now. My great uncle, who was also a priest, died in the Phillipines of malaria while ministering there. Those people express their beliefs in their deeds, not in their volume. I respect that.

There certainly is a big difference between religion (or religious) and a personal belief, that is for sure!

And Tebow does this how? By saying "God Bless" and wearing a scripture on his sleeve? Is that really "in your face" preaching. He doesn't mention it in interviews or press conferences unless asked, which is less than a third of players, and he and his parents have been to third world countries ministering. His mother almost had to abort Tebow because of diseases she picked up in the Philippines.

You don't hate Tebow because he's "in your face" about his beliefs, because he's not. You don't like him because he's Christian and other Christian's like him.

John 15:18: If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first.

To me, this explains all the ridiculous criticism and/or hatred for Tebow. He's outspoken about following Christ, but he certainly is not in anyone's face. A hater is just going to hate.

I think Tebow sees football as a platform to help spread his message. If he wasn't a football player, he wouldn't have the same amount of impact.

And he's a competitor. Competitors compete. That's why John Elway cried at his retirement press conference. That's why Brett Favre still can't retire.

You don't hate Tebow because he's "in your face" about his beliefs, because he's not. You don't like him because he's Christian and other Christian's like him.

Like I've said many times before, it's not Tebow's beliefs that bother me, it's people on this board using him to forward their agenda. Like drama llama. Don't pretend that's not the case, you know it's true. Tebow is actually a little more low key than some other players in the NFL, unless he's specifically asked. I actually don't dislike Tebow at all. How can you not enjoy watching him play, from a strictly sports view? He's everything you could ask for in a competitor. I'm just sceptical of his long term NFL future. Sorry. I didn't fall in love with Elway either, until "The Drive." When Tebow does something like that, in that kind of game, I'll join the faith. ;D

I totally agree with this sentiment. Just because I don't go to a physical chruch every sunday and talk about religion with every person I meet and judge them on their religious attendance record, doesn't mean I don't have religion.

I love the Jesus Loves You quotes that Tebow throws out at trash talkers. I think I might start doing that at pick up hoops from now on. Hillarious.

There was a really good 5280 article about this a few weeks ago. He loves football, but it's a means to a end for him. Football is a platform for him to be evangelical, not just about his faith, but about causes that he cares about - orphanages, poverty, being a good role model etc. It's classic evangelical ethos.

There is no conflict, because Football enables what Tebow really cares about, and it plays to his strength.

Just to be clear, I don't care what message tebow spreads as long as he produces on the football field. He has shown me enough to give him the starting slot next year. He is a competitor, and works his butt off.

Does anybody else ever worry that Tebow could wake up one morning and decide to ditch football and start doing missionary work?

This is one of the questions my buddy and I were mulling over just after the draft. IMO, Tim's religious beliefs take priority one in his life, then family, then everything else. If he feels, at some point, that god wants him to pursue missionary work, I think he'd drop football in a second.

BUT, I also think that he realizes his current position, and how it can be used as a mouthpiece for God. Not by shoving religion down the public's throats, but as an example. Can't remember the exact scripture, but it's something like "let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your father which is in heaven." I see tebow's close relationship with God coming through in that manner more than anything...so while I was worried at first about your original question, I think he'll realize that the position he's currently in will not only allow him to be an example for others, but also provide a means for him to continue on with his charity/missionary work in the future.

In the end though, I think the answer to the quesition is YES, he is the type of man that would drop everything if his convictions prompted his to do so. The likelihood of that happening, however, is relatively slim in my opinion.

One more thing, I remember reading an interview with him, in which he was asked about how he goes about telling others about his religious beliefs, and if it would upset others etc etc. He basically said he doesn't like to force his beliefs on anyone, especially in the locker room, and that the religious discussions mostly come up if others ask him (hence the leading by example attitude).

I think that this is Tim Tebow's mission work. Tim probably sees the NFL and its platform as the opportunity.
