Tim Tebow fans won’t want to miss the 12,000+ word article that Sports Illustrated ran on him right before Christmas–and then buried without fanfare on their website, rather than run even a portion of it in their print magazine. Terry Mattingly has a good write-up about it in Patheos. An excerpt from the SI article quoted by Mattingly:
There is no real precedent for his situation. Tebow is America’s most influential athlete, according to a poll of 1,100 adults published by Forbes in May, and he is also unemployed. In 23 months he became a starting NFL quarterback, won seven of eight games in exhilarating fashion, led the Broncos to an astonishing playoff win over the Steelers and was cast aside by the Broncos, Jets and Patriots. Every other team had a chance to pick him up, and none did. Now, at 26, in his early prime as an athlete, he is trying to become what he already was.
