Flutie is a Tebow fan

One of the most unconventional quarterbacks in NFL history has plenty of fans.  One of those fans is another well-known, unconventional NFL quarterback.

Doug Flutie, who was regarded as unusual by NFL standards not because of mechanics or accuracy issues but because of his height, roots for Tim Tebow.  Flutie knows from experience that guys who don’t fit the NFL mold meet resistance, which makes it far less surprising that the quarterback for whom they broke the mold and who also happens to currently run the Broncos has been slowly warming up to the irony that has been unfolding in Denver.

Flutie, now a member of the NBC Sports family and a genuinely great guy (yes, I’d think that even if he wasn’t a member of the NBC Sports family), appeared last night on NBC SportsTalk with Russ Thaler to discuss the Tebow phenomenon.
