When the name Elvis Presley is mentioned, what does it make you think of? Founder of rock and roll perhaps? Showstopper? Unique? Or simply The King (personally my favorite)? When people make the argument that one man can change the world, you need look no further than Elvis as a prime example of that fact. This small-town boy came sizzling onto the scene, and music never looked the same. Of course, the older generation fought the change and labeled him evil and a passing craze. Boy, were they wrong on that one.
So, is Timmy Tebow the NFL's "King"? This guy has made waves in the NFL before he was even drafted. His technique is derided and his faith is ridiculed. Before being drafted, it was said he wouldn't go first round. After going first round, it was said he'd never see play in his first year.
After playing in his first season, it was said he'd never get the starting position. After taking over as starter, it was said he'd never win. And now after winning, it's being said he'll never become great.
Well, I beg to differ. I don't want to be with the detractors and end up on the wrong side of history on this one. I'm calling it now. Tim Tebow will be a great NFL quarterback, and dare I say one of the greatest of all time changing the game of football forever. Unrealistic prediction? Maybe, but just remember what they said about a young country boy from Tupelo.
