On Thursday, CBS teased an interview of Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow by Shannon Sharpe with a cliffhanger.
Asks Sharpe: “Do you believe this organization is 100 percent behind you?”
Says Tebow, dodging the question: “I believe I am blessed to play for this organization.”
Responds Sharpe: “That wasn’t the question. I didn’t ask you whether or not you were blessed. I asked do you believe John Fox and John Elway, 100 percent, believe that Tim Tebow is the guy that’s gonna get them back to winning championships.”
That’s where the Thanksgiving snippet ended. On Sunday, CBS pressed the “play” button. And Tebow once again didn’t answer.
“Well, I am very thankful that they believe in me enough to give me an opportunity and that they have stuck with me and I’m very thankful,” Tebow said. “I will say it again, I feel very blessed.”
Tebow knows that he doesn’t have the unequivocal support of the organization. With Elway openly talking about not being sold on Tebow as the long-term answer, how could he?
To his credit, Tebow found a way to answer the question without saying anything that would cause a ruckus. Even if that meant not answering the question at all.
