Report: Tim Tebow wants more than Dez Bryant

The Dallas Cowboys selected Dez Bryant with the 24th pick in the 2010 NFL draft, and the Denver Broncos selected Tim Tebow 25th. Ordinarily, that would mean Tebow should get paid a little bit less than Bryant.

But Tebow apparently wants more money than Bryant, and that’s why he wasn’t there when the Broncos’ rookies reported to training camp today.

Ed Werder of ESPN reported on NFL Live that the holdup on Tebow’s contract is the request from agent Jimmy Sexton that a premium be paid to Tebow because he’s a quarterback. Sexton wants Tebow to get a bigger signing bonus, higher base salaries and more money overall than Bryant is getting from the Cowboys.

Werder reported that Tebow and the Broncos are close to getting the deal done, but in the mean time, coach Josh McDaniels has called Tebow and expressed disappointment that Tebow didn’t report with the rest of the rookies.

“You’re missing time and you can’t afford to miss it,” McDaniels told Tebow, according to Werder. “You’re not going to get these snaps back.”

    “Tim Tebow” wants more money, or “Tim Tebow’ Agent” wants more money???

  2. dakotah says: Jul 28, 2010 4:27 PM

    God told him to get more money than Dez. After all, Dez’z mom is a sinner.

  3. Hooker McTitties says: Jul 28, 2010 4:30 PM

    Seriously McDaniels??? Do you expect Tebow to pull a Crabtree? I think Tebow has played enough football in his life to miss a few days of practice.

  4. Donna says: Jul 28, 2010 4:30 PM

    I bet he’s been on the phone with Urban Meyer all day for the past several days, whining no doubt!!

    Tebow is a big wuss……i knew it before he was drafted……..i don’t blame him for wanting lots of money…..we all want lots of money…..he knows the only money he’ll ever get will be from his rookie contract……because he’ll be out of the league before his rookie contract expires…..funny ain’t it…..he professes to be this big Christian……Christian my butt…..he loves money and fame alot more than his invisible God…..ha ha…i’m so glad the Saints had better sense than to draft that loser…..he’s a big wuss cry-baby……with ZERO Pro Level QB skills…..

  7. mwcarolina says: Jul 28, 2010 4:39 PM

    I think Tebow should forget wanting more money than Bryant and go to camp. Unlike Bryant, i dont see Tebow starting this year. Unlike Bryant, Tebow has MAJOR work to do. Tebow has more work to do than Clausen does because Tebow’s mechanics arent going to work in the NFL and he needs to make sure that they are perfect and he doesnt revert to his old style.

  8. Kevin from Philly says: Jul 28, 2010 4:39 PM

    Maybe he can just get each of his teamates to buy an autograph. That should make up the difference.

  9. ijr213 says: Jul 28, 2010 4:41 PM

    Timmy, you just got an endorsement with Jockey! You don’t need that much more money. Get in camp, if there’s a player in the NFL who needs camp the most, it’s you.

  10. SpoonFeedBear says: Jul 28, 2010 4:41 PM

    No, not true. This is a smear camping on Tebow for not bowing to the Broncos demands. Just wait, this is not true. Just part of the public side of signing a big dollar deal with a player that values his name.

  11. afiresnake says: Jul 28, 2010 4:42 PM

    At least McD didn’t give him advice to talk a little holdout with Brady Quinne :D

  12. TFBuckFutter says: Jul 28, 2010 4:43 PM

    Tebow should be paid more.
    10% of it is going directly to one phony church scam or another.

    Saint Tebow. The guy who charges kids $160 for autographs. The guy who wants more money than traditional slots get.
    The Broncos overdrafted this fraud and bought into the ridiculous hype and they will regret it.
    The greed this self declared christian is sickening. Reminds me of Jim and Tammy Fate Bakker.
    Next Tebow will get his own cable station rolling funded by “donations”
    I can see him now on TV, preaching to the gullible and weak minded.
    ” i am the prophet! God wants you to send me your paycheck each and every weak. You will be blessed with good health, wisdom, and will enter the pearly gates. God wants me to have expensive vehicles, mansions, jets, and a tax-free enterprise. Send me your paychecks, I am Tim Tebow, I can walk on water.
    SICKENING!
    And before any of you nimwits reply with the ignorant response like” Tebow is a christian, he donates to mutiple charities.””
    I say to you, prove to me he donates 100% of whatever funds are raised. And he will be a millionaire soon, so will he donate his own money? Or will he continue to “donate” partial proceeds from the “sales” of his autographs?
    Charging kids for autographs and then using that money to say HE donates is fraud. HE didn’t donate the money, he hijacked stupid people

  16. djmoore914 says: Jul 28, 2010 4:45 PM

    Tebow is an idiot. He was lucky to get drafted in the first round. All of his BS “I will work harder blah blah” BS goes out the window when you act like a spoiled first round jack ass. The Bronco’s aren’t hurting for quarterbacks and Tebow isn’t even close to a proven starting option yet. Show up to practice, that is what will get you paid bro.

  17. Brad Miller says: Jul 28, 2010 4:45 PM

    Is this the real Tim Tebow?

  18. Corey says: Jul 28, 2010 4:47 PM

    Haha. What a douche.

  21. TimT says: Jul 28, 2010 4:49 PM

    They drafted him as a QB, they have to pay him as a QB. 25th pick + QB Premium = more than the 24th pick.

  22. DeVoodoo says: Jul 28, 2010 4:52 PM

    Trade him to Chicago?

  23. harloeisdead says: Jul 28, 2010 4:53 PM

    Oh, what a threat! I’m sure Tebow is shaking in his Jesus sandals because he “can’t get those snaps back”. Hi, you just spent a gazillion dollars and risked your reputation around the league to take this guy. Obviously you’re going to play him over Mullet Man and that other dude that everyone forgot about.

  24. GoTitans says: Jul 28, 2010 4:57 PM

    Here we go!!. First chink in the armor … whether it’s Timmy or his agent … and, apaprently, having your name on Jockey shorts isn’t enough … this guy has a lot to prove. And this is not the way to go about it! So, here you go, Timmy …. you’re first official “BOO!” from the Planet.

  26. formerly dystopianow says: Jul 28, 2010 4:58 PM

    Good job donkies, u shoulda drafted him in the 6th round where he houldve been taken

  27. skinny pigeon says: Jul 28, 2010 4:59 PM

    Conversely:

  29. NinerNation says: Jul 28, 2010 5:03 PM

    Of course he’s asking for as much money as he can…he’s smart enough to know that he won’t be getting that huge second contract.

  30. DirtDawg55 says: Jul 28, 2010 5:04 PM

    First, whether Tim Tebow wants more money or his agent wants more money is the same thing. One doesn’t act without the other and one certainly doesn’t act without the express direction of the other. Tebow doesn’t work for his agent, his agent works for him.
    All this proves is Tebow is like the rest of them. He doesn’t have any greater character. He will do what he can to maximize the opportunity for him. Nothing wrong with that per se, outside of the persona which he continues to manufacture which suggests he’s not like that at all.
    Yet another “God fraud”.

  31. Bob Nelson says: Jul 28, 2010 5:05 PM

    Jimmy Sexton has always been a jerk of an agent and probably the 2nd most hated after Rosenhaus.
    Jimmy Sexton has had months to get this deal done and he is now doing all these theatrics.
    Frankly, any rookie hiring Jimmy Sexton usually sees their draft stock go down. Tebow is an exception.
    The Broncos can afford to let Tebow hold out and hurt his image and Christian testimony. Blaming his agent will not work for for Tebow.
    Shut up and sign.

  32. TrueFan says: Jul 28, 2010 5:06 PM

    Not very Christian of you Mr. Tebow.
    Jesus would be ashamed.
    Heretic.
    ————————————————
    If you’re going to attack Christianity in general, at least be correct about it:
    1) It would be not very “Christ-Like”. Christian is a Noun.
    2) Someone not acting true to the beliefs is not a HERETIC, but I think you meant to say “Hypocrite”
    BTW… Christians are never directed to be unwise in business dealings or give take less because they follow Christ. If you’re going to be an anti-Christian person, I would encourage you to educate yourself about the faith first.
    And then read Luke 19.

  34. Quest For Six says: Jul 28, 2010 5:09 PM

    This guy tries to fool everyone.I’m sure his agent is the main reason for the holdout but Tebow is always trying to sell something.Sooner or later he will have to play QB in the NFL.I think it’s something he will have trouble doing.

  35. queenie says: Jul 28, 2010 5:13 PM

    ____________________________________
    Josh McDaniels is an a-hole, but I don’t think he would run a smear campaign against his hand-picked QB. Tebow’s his pet, you don’t run smear campaigns against your pet.

  38. mwcarolina says: Jul 28, 2010 5:19 PM

    (“God told him to get more money than Dez. After all, Dez’z mom is a sinner”)
    let’s not get stupid here, but i agree, he doesnt need more money than Dez
    (“he professes to be this big Christian……Chris tian my butt”)
    i wont’ doubt him here, but if it’s Tebow or his agent, they need to realize that where you picked is how you get paid.
    (“I think Tebow has played enough football in his life to miss a few days of practice. “)
    Well, there’s a difference. Tebow’s working on overhauling his mechanics, Tebow NEEDS all the practice he can get.

  39. TheWizard says: Jul 28, 2010 5:21 PM

    he professes to be this big Christian……Chris tian my butt…..he loves money and fame
    To the best of my knowledge, christians don’t take a vow of poverty.
    Dumbass.

  40. sonvar says: Jul 28, 2010 5:23 PM

    Not sure why he feels deserving of more money. I could see escalators potentially because Tebow should not see the field at all this year outside of Wildcat type formations if they want to maintain that he is only going to be a QB. There’s already enough doubt about Tebow’s ability at the NFL level that stuff like this would make me reconsider if he’s worth signing at all.

  41. Skins_Get_It_In says: Jul 28, 2010 5:24 PM

    I thought “Choir Boy” would play for donations……

  42. TheWizard says: Jul 28, 2010 5:24 PM

    I guess he missed that part about “The meek shall inherit the earth”.
    The ancient interpretation of meek comes from the Roman which means “well disciplined”.
    Gives the phrase a logical context, eh?
    Parasite career welfare recipients will not inherit the Earth, no doubt much to your chagrin.

  43. redsquare says: Jul 28, 2010 5:28 PM

    Avarice is a sin, Timmy. Your act won’t go far in the NFL.
    As for TrueFan, what se says brings to mind too many contemporary Christians who selectively read and bend scripture around their desires for convenience and materialism. Not saying he’s one of those himself, but it’s a poisonous trend, especially in America. If Tebow was for real, he’d be ashamed to take that much money for playing a game. But humility is in short supply these days, both in Christians and others.

  44. C-Student says: Jul 28, 2010 5:29 PM

    cant say i blame him.
    he has to pay his agent 3%
    he donates to christian charities. so that’s 15%
    he has to tithe to the church every week 10%
    uncle sam takes his piece off the top 50%
    the rest will be divided up between mortgage, bills cars and the most important thing in a “family values” christian’s life…….gay prostitutes.
    i hear they dont come cheap so get as much money as you can timmy.

  45. jeffjewell says: Jul 28, 2010 5:29 PM

    This is McDaniels’ own fault for claiming Tebow is a QB. He’ll never a be an NFL QB.

  46. Ridge_Runner says: Jul 28, 2010 5:30 PM

    You think Tebow would have learned something from Crabtree’s holdout last season. The guy should take what his slot dictates and get into camp. Right now he needs all the pro-level experience he can get!

  47. burntorangehorn says: Jul 28, 2010 5:32 PM

    There should be NO QB premium in salary relative to draft position. The premium is already built into where the guy was drafted. What they’re trying to get is a double-premium, and he shouldn’t get that.
    Of course, I contend that he shouldn’t have been drafted in the first round either, and probably not even in the first two days.

  48. FinFan68 says: Jul 28, 2010 5:35 PM

    Not a huge Tebow fan but I think he will do well in the NFL. His character has been touted much and, based on his public personality and previous statements, i think the agent is the one making the push for more money. If it goes longer than a few days, i expect tebow to tell the agent to get the deal done

  49. dabarber says: Jul 28, 2010 5:39 PM

    Will he take a pay cut when they move him to Tight End in two years?

  50. smellsdelicious says: Jul 28, 2010 5:39 PM

    yeh, there’s a big difference between dez bryant and tim tebow; tim tebow will be playing in the ufl in two years. why should he get more money then a starting wide receiver?

  51. Laxer37 says: Jul 28, 2010 5:40 PM

    I’ll bet he carries Cutler’s pads.

  52. TheWizard says: Jul 28, 2010 5:42 PM

    I am Tim Tebow, I can walk on water.
    SICKENING!

    Your verbal diarrhea is worse here than on the Patriots threads you pollute and infest.
    A jackass is going to dictate how a christian should earn or spend his money? Laughable.

  53. Ravenmuscle says: Jul 28, 2010 5:42 PM

  55. slutnuts says: Jul 28, 2010 5:43 PM

    those of you who seem to think that these snaps are not that relevant, or that he “has played enough football in his lifetime” to not need the trianing camp time remember: he worked out of a shotgun his entire college career. taking snaps under center during the summer and preseason is vital for this guy. dont underestimate the importance of center-qb snap relationship. if a qb cant get the snap right the play is dead from the get go.

  59. teamkryp says: Jul 28, 2010 5:48 PM

    You people are idiots. Anybody besides Tebow and this would be a non story. He deserves the QB premium. You don’t draft someone in the first round to ride the bench. Before you spew out other first round QBs that didn’t start right away, ask yourself how much were they paid? Slot value.

  60. dragonrider2300 says: Jul 28, 2010 5:50 PM

    I agree with Ridge Runner-Tebow is only hurting himself by not being at camp. Being a long term project at QB, he should show up ASAP and sign his contract later if he wants. I thought Tebow was Mr. Christian and Mr. Team. Sounds more like Mr. Diva at this point.
    If the Broncos had not reached for him at the end of Round 1, he likely would have still been on the board at the end of Round 4. He should be thrilled to sign a contract in the # 25 slot-if I had been him, I would have signed it the day after the draft. For a guy that will spend the majority of his NFL career holding a clipboard, he should have taken the money and been 3 days early for training camp. Broncos fans, it will be a long wait to see any real production out of this guy. The fact that he is already a legend in his own mind does not help.

  61. rickvaldez says: Jul 28, 2010 5:51 PM

    Doesnt matter that all the NFL scouts on here commenting say he cant be a starting QB. They drafted him in the first round so yeah he should get more than Bryant.

  62. Rondachamp24 says: Jul 28, 2010 5:52 PM

    So funny all these Tebow haters complaining about Tebow “holding out.”. Qbs get paid a premium when drafted in the first round. I’m sure they’ll have a contract done in time for practice tomorrow. Wonder what some of you guys will do when Tebow is starting and dominating in the NFL. Probably just continue to hate. Also, last I checked only 1 first rounder in the NFL had signed so Tim not having his deal done yet is really not that big of a deal.

  63. Howboutdemcowboys says: Jul 28, 2010 5:57 PM

    People who claim to be as religious as Tim T-bags should be a red flag, but instead being cocky was a bigger red flag???? “scratching my head” Why do NFL teams continue to waste so much money on scouting when common sense is worth so much more?

  64. CapsLockKey says: Jul 28, 2010 5:57 PM

    Someone should inform his agent that he’s not an NFL QB, therefore the positional premium argument is moot.

  65. HarrisonHits says: Jul 28, 2010 5:57 PM

    Just like that moron Quinn. You’d think Tebow would be thanking his god that he was picked in the first round, especially since the Donks had to trade up to get him.
    How does he repay the Donks for their faith ? With greed. FU Tebow so much for the whole religious front you put on. Its clear that’s all it is, a front, and that you don’t believe in anything but your own bank account.
    Greedy little prick.

  66. marinofreakout says: Jul 28, 2010 5:58 PM

    tebow has the bargaining leverage bc the broncos went out on a limb to pick him up and obviously no one at management over there is going to deal with a deal gone bad for this guy (if the broncos didnt get him, tebow wouldve fallen to the 2nd. tebow should keep that in mind). hes still a docuhe tho

    Wait a minute. There was a Donkey fan on here the other day saying Tebow was willing to play for peanuts or some crap like that so that Dumervil could get paid.

    He’s going to make his employer huge amounts of money. Why is it “un-Christian” to negotiate a contract and be rich? The Bible says nothing like that. Dumbshits like Salem76 and Onlymyopinionmatters define Christianity however it suits them to justify believing in nothing and having no moral code. Stick to football. If you know nothing about it, that’s more than you know about Tim Tebow or his faith.

    In 2009, Josh Freeman got drafted one slot after Larry English. He received a larger overall contract, more incentives, a larger signing bonus and more guaranteed money.
    In 2008, Joe Flacco was drafted one slot after Gosder Cherilus. He received a significantly larger overall contract with substantially higher incentives, and a signing bonus within $150k of Cherilus.
    In 2007, Brady Quinn was drafted one slot after Reggie Nelson, and received a significantly larger overall contract, many more incentives, higher signing bonuses and a significantly higher total guaranteed amount.
    So basically, Tim Tebow’s agent is arguing that he should get what other mid-first round Quarterbacks have gotten, which is to say, a reasonable premium related to the quarterback position, and this somehow reflects poorly on Tebow’s faith? Are there really that many people posting on this website that lack even the tiniest morsel of common sense? Can we at least elevate the discussion of issues to a 7th grade level before we start leveling these sorts of accusations?
    It’s like half of you are the unholy love child of Emmitt Smith and Richard Dawkins, taking the absolute worst characteristics of both with none of the upside or ability to run between the tackles….or make coherent arguments.

  89. Bill says: Jul 28, 2010 6:47 PM

    Just because someone is a christian, and stands up for it, doesn’t mean that he should take less money, than another QB that get drafted. All of you people who don’t believe in God and are putting down Tebow because of it, need to ask yourselves, If you played QB, won a national championship, won a heisman, were picked in the first round, would you want the best contract you could get, or would you just take, what they offered you, because they think they can offer you less, because you were a christian. That shouldn’t even be an issue. This is his job, and he has the right to earn what a QB in the first round should.

  90. robert ethen says: Jul 28, 2010 6:49 PM

    Wow… he missed one day of ROOKIE reporting training camp, the real TC opens on Sunday for the Broncos.
    I understand the hate for Tim Tebow. He spent years slapping the sh#t out of many of you guys’ alma maters. I also understand that this offseason is gold for everyone, because everybody can piggyback on the “his mechanics aren’t NFL mechanics” train (like any of you guys know what NFL mechanics are, or have played a snap of football in your lives.)
    He will be signed soon. He will work hard like he always does. Sure, you guys will be quick to criticize at every small mistake, but my money is on his success. And you guys will continue to bit#h and moan, just like when Tim was in college, that he still somehow sucks.
    You all suck.

    this crap happens every year … they should have had him signed …
    McDaniels is calling the wrong people … he should call the front office and ask “exactly how much time do you need to get this done??? Three months isn’t enough time ?” …

    This argument makes slightly more sense than Crabtree’s argument which was based on his pre-draft ranking ahead of Heyward-Bey. Nonetheless, it is interesting.
    If Tebow gets his way on this, it could set the standard for similar arguments throughout the draft.

    This is worse then Dez Bryants poor display of humility. Tebow has done nothing in the NFL. Yet he wants to be treated “specially”. No surprise when people (Gator Fans, Bronco Fans, Christian whack-o’s) anoint him “Hey Zeus” Jr. It’s clear now his religiousness is just a long con to scam ignoramous’ from their money. Plus, the guy can’t read a defense at the college level on top of his horrible mechanics. He got by with the 1 read and run system in Florida. Not going to work in the NFL he’s not the athlete VY is and even he’s struggling. Then you have Urban Meyers last QB to make it to the NFL, Alex Smith, who’s lucky to be afforded a 6th season to do something in the league, and he’s a much better pro-prospect than Tebow. Crash and burn, Timmy. Crash and burn.

  110. Cody4258 says: Jul 28, 2010 7:54 PM

    I’m not really sure why there’s so much animosity in the fan world for Tim Tebow. What is it that Tebow has done that any other highly touted professional athlete hasn’t? How does Christianity and following Christ effect one’s own personal business sense?
    Tebow feels that he should make more money as to where he was drafted and the position that he plays. But the fact that he is publicly devout should effect the bottom-line on his contract? I have a hard time seeing the correlation.
    If this were another athlete, say Peyton Manning (who is clearly more accomplished in the NFL at this point), who is also of the same faith, and he held out of camp, would he face the same back-lash? Doubtful.
    That being said, I don’t think Tebow deserves more money than Dez Bryant. Bryant signed his contract earlier than any other 1st round pick and did so probably at a cheaper rate than what most would have predicted. He did this to make a statement to the media and to the Cowboys that he is eager to get into camp and show that he comes as advertised, and that he wants to be as prepared as possible. To this point, without regarding the “pad-gate” fiasco, Bryant has been an apt pupil in the Cowboys organization.
    Tebow is a project. Josh McDaniels has already stated on-record, that he doesn’t plan to start Tebow at QB at all this year unless it’s in the Wild Horse formation or a variation of such.
    In that instance, the “QB Premium,” that keeps being referred to is a non-factor. Not to mention that Tebow was picked at #25. How many QBs that were picked in the latter-half of the 1st round, that have a legitimate shot of starting that season have held out because of pay? -Very few in recent years. Tim Tebow wasn’t a top-10 ranked player and was predicted by many scouts as a Day 2 Prospect. Taking those factors into account, in addition to the fact that Denver took a chance on him by trading up, one would think that Tebow would be eager to prove his worth to the organization while attempting to prove his doubters wrong, and get in to camp. I do feel that Tebow should be paid what Denver would expect to pay a pick at #25 regardless of postion. -His “slot value,” as it has been referred to on this post.
    Depending on the duration of the hold-out, this could seriously hurt Tebow in more ways than one. The snaps that he’s missing are crucial to his early development. The hold-out could also effect his ability to adapt to the offensive playbook and develop chemistry with his teammates. It will, and seems that it already has, hurt his public persona.
    If Tebow remains a hold-out for a number of days, or even worse weeks, he will stay at the back of the depth chart, and he will ultimately end up in the back of the minds of fans.

    The answer to the first question is hell yes, there are that many people posting here with no common sense. Some days it’s like moron central.
    And as for the 2nd question about elevating the conversation to a 7th grade level, good luck with that.
    One of the joys of coming to this site is to read the idiotic poster comments, it kinda makes you feel omnipotent if you’re capable of stringing together a coherent sentence which is grammatically correct and contains no spelling errors(and there’s even a spellcheck).

    The media and morality freaks in the NFL always acts like QB’s are so harmless and so angelic when there are the “Big Bens” and “Matt Leinarts” of the world!!! This B.S. criterion is also used to show who’s a great player as well, especially by skirt-wearing morons like Skip Bayless and Boomer while they get their panties in a bunch!!!

    I think there is some information that could help all of us in judging this story. For example, were QBs like Ben Roethlisberger, Josh Freeman paid more than players at other positions directly ahead of them? I don’t understand why Tebow wouldn’t report. That is the exact opposite of everything he has preached. Even if a contract isn’t done he should report and participate.

    First of all, Tebow has never thrown a single ball as an NFL QB. 2nd: He’s not even considered an NFL QB. So yes, he is missing and wasting a lot of valuable time that he could be using to better himself as an NFL QB. I’m a Chargers fan so I could care less.
    Tebow charges kids $160 for an autograph?? R U Serious?? Man, what happend to the days where if u were lucky enough to run into a pro athlete, they would sign anything you asked for free?? These athletes need to realize that without the fans, there would be no NFL, there would be no multi million dollar contracts. I would happily sign autographs for free to anyone that was a fan of mine if I were an NFL player. How terrible for a kid to be charged for an autograph from there favorite player. WOW, thats really WEAK.

  136. tombrookshire says: Jul 28, 2010 10:02 PM

    I would pay him more than Bryant, in the form of performance escalators. Tebow is the biggest unknown quantity of the modern draft era. Pay him equivalent money to Bryant, but if he turns out to be more than a novelty act, and out of the league in a year, no harm, no foul. But if he is the second coming of Joe Montana, which I doubt, performance escalators for winning the starting job, total yards passing in a season, completion %, pro bowl appearance, QB rating and more, could presumably give Tebow a handsome increase in salary to start the 2011 season. This approach would effectively end the culture of guys getting paid before they do anything. It would have saved the Raiders the fortune they paid J. Rus.

  137. tombrookshire says: Jul 28, 2010 10:19 PM

    The anti-Christian attacks on Tebow in these comments is a disheartening reflection of religious intolerance that pervades the U.S. in general. How does the topic of contracts have anything to do with his religious faith? Some of you are looking to attack him for some reason and have focused on that subject in particular. Why? Stick to the issue. Would his profession of the Muslim or Jewish faith engender the same level of venomous attack?

    I don’t dislike Tebow, but I do think people would have the same problem with him as they do now if he was Muslim or Jewish. Cause then he would be pushing and mentioning his Muslim or Jewish faith just like he does his Christian beliefs in every single one of his interviews. I think that’s what rubs people the wrong way. It is that “in your face” Christian praising that makes people say, “what makes you so much better?” It’s like he’s grandstanding for his religion. I couldn’t care less how often he speaks about religion, but some people don’t like it.

  140. In & Out Burger says: Jul 29, 2010 12:53 AM

    @tombrookshire
    I think the reason for religiously themed comments isn’t really an attack on christianity (although some might be) it is more frustration with Tebow professing his faith and then attacking in away that would appear contradictory to several things the bible teaches. Do you think Jesus Christ would approve of someone who proudly uses his name and then pushes for more money?
    I am not taking sides, I’m just trying to clarify for better understanding.

  141. Siggtacular says: Jul 29, 2010 12:55 AM

    Man, Denver fans, it truely is a shame. I really ragged on Tebow for his lack of throwing skills, and booed when he was drafted by McDaniels. But now he just makes me sick. I mean, I gave him credit for his leadership skills, and his calm demeanor. But now I can see past that smiling, licking of the lips christian attitude. He is a heartless swine who is trying to cash in on the only contract he will ever receive in the pros. First he got rid of Cutler, then the Beast. And replaces them with TeBlow and Demaryius Thomas. HAHA. Enjoy Denver, the genius that is Josh McDaniels.

    Someone posted this…whoever did knows nothing about how an nfl contract negotiation works. There may be some input from the player, but rest assured most of the agents are looking out for themselves and their reputations of getting good deals for athletes in the future…
    That being said, if this report is true and if I was Tebow and a very outspoken christian public figure I would definitely direct my agent to do a slot deal that everyone expects. I would not want my name in the same sentence as greed or hypocrite…especially when I’m going to make more money in the next few days than most of the ppl in the world with ever make.

    Being a hold out is going to hurt his reputation more than anything else. All he needs to do is take the slotted deal, then rake in $ from the inevitable endorsements (at least until sponsors remember how well endorsing a back up can work out – think Brady Quinn).
    Of course Dez Bryant should make more money than Tebow, he will start sooner and was expected to be drafted between 5 and 20, slipping to where he landed. Tebow could have just as easily been a 2-3 rounder, and got drafted higher than most expected, so should be happy he gets 1st round money in the first place.

    All these responses and there is no real proof to any of this.
    Some say that as a Christian he should take what ever is offered and be happy. What a bunch of garbage. He should get what ever he can. That is how these things work. The team is trying to paying him as little as they can and he is trying to get the most. Anything else is plain stupid.
    This isn’t a religious issue. It is just business. If it is even true.
    But, I don’t believe that this story has been accurately represented. It smells….. But the truth has never been PFT’s strong suit.
    Let’s everybody blog a reaction…. yea!

    If that is what disheartens you, you need to get a larger world view. What is a “slight majority” anyway? If you don’t like the laws in this country, either vote the incumbents out, and vote in those who agree with your viewpoints, or move.”
    That’s not how the CONSTITUTION works.
    It’s not set up to allow the majority (whether it’s 51% or 99%) to do whatever the hell they want. It’s set up to allow them to do what the wish within set guidelines.
    If it weren’t for those guidelines, we’d still have segregation.

    You draft a third rounder in the first round as a courtesy, to get him a bit more money, and this is how he pays you back? Nice.

    I love people who argue that: “Tebow can still be a Christian and still be a greedy turd and argue over money because that’s BUSINESS.”
    What was that Jesus said about the rich and heaven again?
    Now what WOULD Jesus do?

    Somebody who wears their religion on their sleeve is trying to make money off of it? I’m shocked. That has never happened in the history of the world. Not once.
    For shame Tim Tebow. For shame.

    For those blaming the agent, I am going to have to disagree. The agent is a representative of the player. Of course some agents take the reins and do things the player might not be ok with (see Crabtree), but final say rests with the player.
    If Tebow doesn’t want to be thought of as a holdout than he can instruct his agent to not holdout or find a new agent. Looking at the Crabtree scenario again: I think most people agree his agent pushed him to behave so absurdly. But (based on comments I have read) most people still blame Crabtree, as they should. He is the one who had final say and allowed himself to be controlled.
    Whatever is going on with Tebow, I think he needs to get it taken care of as soon as possible. Realistically, this is a guy who might have to make a career out of being a fan favorite, and this is not the way to start.

    I for one am shocked given the fact that, in the Phillipines, Tebow worked just for tips.
    Classic.

    Who is more self serving and tedious: Brett “Funny you should say that – Actually I am the best to ever play the game” Favre or Tim “All I want is the most for my fellow man – did I say that? I meant me” Tebow.

    I guess Teabags agent lost the Senior Bowl game film.
