Tebow Mania Alert: We couldn't possibly write a post without mentioning Tim Tebow. Gray Caldwell has a great article up about him on DenverBroncos.com. He goes into detail how Tebow is different - in a very good way.
Apparently Tim Tebow is a pretty good athleate, duh. Not only was he a star football player in college, he can play baseball as well. At a High School, Tebow hit 12 homers on 15 pitches. Rookie Wide Reciever Eric Decker isn't too bad at baseball himself - Decker batted .319 with 43 runs, four homers, 11 steals and 25 RBIs in 56 games in his second season on the diamond, but his focus on football hurt his (MLB) draft status. He did end up being drafted by the Twins, but chose football instead.
Veteran free-agent running back Brian Westbrook met with Broncos officials at Dove Valley on Thursday about the possibility of joining the team for the 2010 season. The meeting reportedly went very well, and Josh McDaniels told the Denver Post Westbrook is "healthy".
Tim Tebow is more than just a football player. He is a name, writes Garrett Barnes. Tebow was a great add by the Broncos, they will get a lot out of him, on the field, and in good publicity. You won't hear about him being in a night club fight, or being arrested for carrying a gun. Record jersey sales are a nice bonus for the Broncos as well.
