Monday Morning Tebow Read: Tampa Trib

OK, we're (finally) here: Game week at the start of the 2009 season. Much, much more to come throughout the week, mainly focusing on Saturday's opener versus Charleston Southern.

But to get you going this morning, check out this piece from Joey Johnston of the Tampa Trib, published over the weekend, which is the Trib's version of the now-standard piece from every outlet: "Tebow: What it all means."

Here's the money quote in the article from Tebow:
"I love football and work extremely hard at it, but it's not my God. I think I have a sense of purpose to know what's really important."
That is entirely compatible with Tebow's oft-repeated priorities: Faith, family, football -- in that order. (See the posts below for links to this weekend's New York Times feature.)

But that doesn't mean that he isn't laser-focused on this season and on the potential of this team to accomplish something special under his leadership.

By the way: No, I didn't just highlight this article because it refers in-depth to TimTeblog.com. (But it never hurts!)

Reminder: If your outlet -- newspaper, magazine, radio, blog, whatever -- wants to talk Tebow, use the email on the upper-right to give me a shout. Happy to help out.

  1. So, Dan: do you think the fact that the Patriots appear ready to pull the plug on developing Kevin O'Connell bolster or burden your argument regarding the Pats wanting to draft Tebow?
