Tim Tebow is not just a competitor and a purebred winner. He's a professional and classy athlete.
Here's something that eats at me—why do reporters constantly try to trick him into saying something that's not like him? Why do they ask him questions about how he celebrates?
Why do their questions sound like attempts to bait him into saying something bad? Can he just be a class act? Why don't you just ask him about the game?
Since reporters ask him questions that clearly have underhanded meanings, here are the top five comments you will never hear from Tim Tebow in a press conference.
"I think that if I was more involved in our offense, we would be more successful."
Tim Tebow doesn't need to touch the rock every play to be "satisfied." He just wants to win. Tebow does not care about yards or completions or even touchdowns. He just wants the team to succeed.
"If the defense would have stopped them on a few of their drives, we probably could have won."
You will never hear Tim Tebow bash his teammates. If anything, he will find a way to put the blame on himself. He thinks that every time he's on the field, the team should score.
His teammates love this about him because he will never throw them under the bus.
"Yes, I did get into an argument there. I left the club right before the shots were fired."
Tim Tebow is a model Christian athlete. He's a responsible human being. I don't expect to ever hear Tebow apologizing for his involvement in a nightclub shooting or late-night altercation.
After Thursday night's game against the Jets, he said he was going to get a bite to eat, hang out with family and get some sleep.
"We ARE going to win this game. They just can't beat us."
Tebow doesn't guarantee wins. He just does his best to win. Most of the time, though, he does win.
He talks about preparing throughout the week and puts it in God's hands on game day.
"I'm the best player on the team."
"Come out and watch my show."
"I'm so good."
Tim Tebow just wins.
He doesn't talk about it. He doesn't tell people how good he is. He doesn't downplay other player's successes. He just gets it done.
