Drake’s Take on Tebow voted #1 Athlete!

11 Jan

An ESPN poll for Americas Top Pro Athlete was released today. I’m sure you know by now who was voted #1.  That is correct if you said Tim Tebow! I would like to share my personal Christian view on Tebow mania and what he means to football. Now please don’t stop reading because I said Christian.  My view may surprise some of you, and may offend others. As Christians we should celebrate the status and recognition Tebow has received.  For too long now I’ve heard people say he has not been given the chance or he is hated because he is Christian. That is true that he has been criticized and hated due to his faith. However Tebow is loved and has been supported more than any athlete in sports! 

Religious or not, people need to separate their faith or beliefs from football when commenting on Tebow’s QB play, unless you’re stating his will to win, determination. That fire and desire comes from within Tebow fueled by his faith in Christ!  I have followed Tebow since his college days like so many.  He is without a doubt one of the best college QB’s to in the history of the NCAA. Now the discussion gets more interesting.  He does not have much of a body work to discuss yet for his performance in the NFL.

My opinion so far is that has been a below average QB, but he has won some games.  This does not mean I don’t think he will improve.  Every time I have made this statement or voiced my opinion I have felt like I just stepped into a Twilight zone episode named Tebowville. As soon as I step off the train, I’m greeted with a sign that says “Welcome to Tebowville.” “You will enjoy your time here as long as you only say great things about our Mayor’s QB play.” In this town all the citizens walk around in a trance ready to burn me at the stake for saying Tebow is not that great of QB yet!  Notice how I said yet!

None of us have a clue how good or bad he Tebow is going to be. My outlook is that he will be an average QB that will not play past the 3rd game for Denver next year.  He will catch on with another team and have some moderate success.

Now hear me out, religious, or not. Last game he played, he played well!  4 games before that, he was horrendous!  His QB play should never be analyzed differently than any other QB that has thrown a football in the NFL. If Tebow is given a pass for all his bad games, or just wiped away from memory, how come we don’t give Andy Dalton a pass for his bad game against the Texans last week? Same goes for Kurt Warner during the end of his St. Louis years.  Both of these men are devoted Christians that had bad games. How come they were not viewed in a different light? Kurt Warner of course is a Hall Fame QB who proved it on the field, as well as a Hall of Fame Christian off the field.

Drake’s Take on 1st Playoff Weekend!

9 Jan

What a weekend for NFL football! I know they are out, but let me give some luv to my Chiefs real quick! Great news that we all knew was coming! Romeo (RAC) Crenell is the new Head Coach of the Kansas City Chiefs! I will talk about this more in a later blog.

First off, Houston Texans great job on winning your 1st playoff game for your franchise! Very impressed with the fans at Reliant! I now live in Houston so I attended the game, will admit it’s hard to beat my love of my fellow Red and Gold at Arrowhead, but dang these Houston fans were off the hook! It was such a great enjoyable, energized football atmosphere! Once JJ Watts lit the fuse with his pick 6, the dynamite called Reliant exploded! Bengals had no chance with this fierce D along with the 12th man of Reliant. Keep your chin up Andy Dalton your future looks bright!

Matty Ice I’m not so sure about your future. At least not success for your post season future. TG, I luv you man, but I don’t think you are going to get that championship in Atlanta. Falcons, you’re not soaring, looks like team is flapping wings not going anywhere.

Saints, what can I say, “Oh when the Saints Go Marching In! Saints led by Drew Brees, enough said! Grass outdoor field in SF may slow them down, but Saints will prevail over much improved 49ers.

Finally the Denver (Donkeys) “excuse me I meant Broncos”. Tebow had a solid game, as well as the rest of his team. I’m not a Tebow hater but come on do you all think that the Steelers D had the right strategy? The blueprint was laid out in the 4 previous games. What did the Chiefs need to hand deliver the Defensive plan on how to shut down Tebow and the Broncos. 10 in the box, are you kidding me! Simple plan guys, Spy Tebow, assign your quickest, most athletic, player on him. Tebow=Athlete, equalize him with another athlete. Press the receivers, don’t let the receivers come off the line unchallenged. Well, Congrats Broncos, have a great week preparing for Mr. Brady! More Drake’s Take to come!  Let me hear what you have to say!
