“Tebow-fever” has penetrated the hearts of Coloradoans

Tebow-Fever

Okay…I have to confess. Cherise and I are not Denver Bronco fans, though I used to be a season ticket holder to watch the glory days of John Elway and the Orange Crush in action.

Ever since childhood I have been a die-hard Dallas Cowboys fan, relishing in the championships of this storied franchise, as well as having my heart ripped from my chest cavity as this team has under-performed on several occasions over the past two decades, and especially, during the last few years given the skill on their depth chart. That’s a whole other subject for another time.

What I did want to say is that “Tebow-fever” has certainly penetrated the hearts of Coloradoans this season. The Thursday night NFL game was very exciting to watch, as the extraordinary happened for the Broncos when Tebow scored a come-from-behind fourth quarter touchdown to carry Denver to victory over the heavily-favored New York Jets.

Tebow has always faced criticism, ever since he was 7 years old. But the truth is that he keeps persevering against unimaginable odds. And I’m even referring to his days in Gainesville, Florida when he played for the Gators. Although 2 National Championships and a Heisman Trophy temporarily silenced his critics, Tebow received more undo criticism after being drafted in the first round by the Denver Broncos.

The underlying message being, “Tebow is not good enough to be an NFL Quarterback!”

Well…Tebow continues to prove his pundits wrong, though he admits he has much to learn about fitting into the pro-style quarterback position. Under the leadership of Tebow, the Broncos are 4-1 in their last five games, as opposed to starting their season 1-4.

What I’m trying to convey is this. Don’t listen to those who give you no chance to succeed, nor should you give up when your beliefs are being tested.

Take it from Tebow, the possibilities of success are within your grasp. Perhaps you also have Tebow-fever?

Tebow is a great guy!

From the start they told him that he could never preform in the NFL. He may not look the greatest on the field but he gets the job done. It doesn't matter how smooth you are on the field comapred to the guy that scrambles. A win is a win whether it looks pretty or not!

GO TEBOW!!!

G - didn't know you were a Cowboys fan. Tebow is a great example. He sets a different standard for NFL player. His integrity and his faith is what mades him great. Have you seen his story?

Gordon & Cherise,  I recently allowed (temporarily) the opinion of another’s perception of my “value” in the office and as a Broker Associate to knock the wind out of my sails.  While I did not agree with the person’s perception – it did negatively impact me.  If that so called “leader” only realized … your words capture it all for me: “Don’t listen to those who give you no chance to succeed, nor should you give up when your beliefs are being tested.” We are not defined by what others think and/or believe.

Gordon, I think Broncos fans were so eager to have something to cheer for, and then Tebow arrived.  He's had some nice shining moments, and he's such a "good guy" that it's hard not to latch on to the Tebow-Fever!

Hope you and Cherise had a great Thanksgiving!  Enjoy the weekend!

It's hard to fathom that Denver beat San Diego yesterday.  Slowly but surely Tebow is mounting a winning record, now 5-1... g

One cannot help but admire this guy. He is clearly a leader and seems to rally people. It is fairly amazing. I do love that he is persistent and consistent. I do cheer for him from a distance. Have a great week Gordon and Cherise.
