If you take a look at the picture to the left, you can find Tim Tebow. He's No. 15.
He plays for the Denver Broncos. Some of his teammates are holding hands with him. You'll also notice that some of the New England Patriots are in that prayer circle holding hands with Broncos.
Wait a sec. You mean Tebow isn't the only religious guy in the NFL?!
Nope, people just act like he is.
In 2012, it's time for fans, commentators and everyone else to leave Tebow and his beliefs alone, like they do for everyone else.
If you watched the Green Bay Packers slice up the Chicago Bears in Week 16, then you saw Packers receiver James Jones score two touchdowns. After both of his touchdowns he stopped, took a knee and looked identical to Tebow when he takes a knee. No one but Jones knows if he was saying a prayer, but no one is bothering him about it.
That's the way it should be—for everyone, including Tebow.
So in 2012, let's just watch football and let these guys pray, point to the sky, cross themselves before a punt return or have prayer circles after games.
If the NFL is getting too religious for you, then it's time to stop watching. Lord knows, we shouldn't cut the religious stuff out because of people's delicate sensibilities.
