My husband gave me an "I Love Tebow" tee-shirt for Christmas, so I read The Sun's recent editorial ("Tebow wars: Give it a rest," Jan. 10) with particular interest. And I agree with you wholeheartedly. If you read Mr. Tebow's 2011 autobiography, you will find that he is truly who he appears to be, a deeply Christian young man who tries each day to live his life in Jesus' footsteps. Having said that, I would like to add my thoughts about Mr. Tebow's relevance in our lives. We seem to be in a world that often devalues the "goodness of life" and respect for humanity.

Once, Social Security was the "third rail" of politics. Touch it and face political death. Now it is homosexuality. Criticize anything gay people do and you risk ostracism, fines, suspension or loss of your livelihood. Michael Sam, the first openly gay player to be drafted by a National Football League team -- the St. Louis Rams picked him 249th in the last round -- is being treated by the media and those in the gay rights movement as the equivalent of an early American pioneer.

I do wonder how accepting and understanding the media, and especially the sports-going public, would be if instead of a white Christian, Tim Tebow was a black Muslim. ("Tebow wars: Give it a rest," Jan. 11.) Jim Jagielski

Michael Phelps is the second-most influential athlete in the United States, according to data from surveys conducted by Nielsen and E-Poll Market Research and published by Forbes.com . Phelps ranks behind only Tim Tebow, a quarterback without a team, and ahead of sprinter Usain Bolt. While Tebow may be an example of marketing mattering more than on-field performance, Phelps and Bolt seem to be the product of Olympic greatness being paired with forward-thinking promotion. I caught up with Phelps' long-time agent, Peter Carlisle, last week to talk about his plans for jockey Rosie Napravnik, a new client he picked up on advice from people in Phelps' Baltimore orbit.

I never put much stock in pro athletes who credit divine intervention for winning games, but Tim Tebow's playoff performance Sunday and the coincidences surrounding the Bible verse John 3:16 are downright eerie. The verse -- "For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life" -- has been touted in sports before. For years, signs reading  "John 3:16" have been displayed for TV cameras by a fan at high-profile games.

Former Cleveland Browns and soon-to-be-former Denver Broncos quarterback Brady Quinn is being scrutinized for honest comments he made about Broncos teammate Tim Tebow to GQ magazine during the 2011 season. Ravens linebacker and 2011 NFL Defensive Player of the Year Terrell Suggs was also quoted by Michael Silver in “An Oral History of Tebow Time” -- and it seems Suggs eventually became a believer by the season's end. Here's an oral history of Suggs on Tebow based on a few quotes Silver used in his article in GQ's March issue . Week 8, after the Detroit Lions beat the Broncos: “They say we were giving him a hard time because he's a Christian.

Poor Lindsey Vonn. The Olympic star recently announced she's divorcing husband Thomas Vonn and now she has to answer questions about rumors that she's dating Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow. In fact, it's more likely she's dating Tim's brother, Robby, who watched her ski - and win - last week's World Cup super-G on Beaver Creek's (Colo.) Birds of Prey. After the victory, Vonn did what everyone does after winning a big race. Yep, she Tebowed. The speculation became so rampant she was dating Tim Tebow that she wrote about it in her occasional column in the Denver Post . "A lot of people are wondering what's up with me and the Tebows.

You don't have to strain your eyes to see the similarities between quarterbacks Cam Newton, a sure-fire 2011 first-round pick out of Auburn, and Tim Tebow, who was selected 25th overall by the Denver Broncos a year ago. They are both Heisman Trophy winners and winners in general. They played together at Florida (Newton couldn't unseat Tebow, which led to his college football odyssey). Both are physically gifted and built like tight ends. They have faced questions about their ability to throw the football, which is kind of important for QBs. And they both seem to have that proverbial "it" factor, and that's always a good thing to have going for you. Sure, there are differences -- like Tebow's love for jorts and Newton getting paid to play in college -- but they are comparable young players with potential to excel in spread offenses in the NFL. You tell me: Which of these two young quarterbacks would you rather build your team around?

Love him or loathe him, Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow was the biggest story on a pretty ugly Sunday of NFL football as he engineered a 15-point comeback in the closing minutes to overtake the Dolphins, 18-15. Tebow had completed just four of his 14 pass attempts for 40 yards as Denver trailed, 15-0, with just over five minutes remaining in the game. With every Tebow pass that bounced off the Miami grass, hundreds of Tweets were chirped out into the blogosphere about how he was pretty much the worst quarterback in NFL history.

Jets have nothing to lose Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune The Jets are 3-6 and have lost three straight. They are playing another team with a losing record this week, the Rams. Mark Sanchez has a 70.4 passer rating and is not winning games. Rex Ryan has nothing to lose by giving Tim Tebow an opportunity to do for them what he did for the Broncos a year ago. If the Jets don't go to Tebow now, it made little sense to trade for him in the offseason. If they wait for another loss or two, it's going to be too late.

In the ongoing effort to fill cyber and print space space 24/7 and keep readers perpetually stirred up,  Sports Ilustrated has released an NFL players' poll that lists New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow as the most overrated player in the game. The bad news, at least if you're a Ravens fan, is that Ray Lewis shows up at No. 5 on the list. Yes, in a survey of 180 players, Baltimore's sainted middle linebacker and future no-doubt Hall of Famer was listed by three percent of the player vote as a guy whose reputation -- at least at 37 years of age, with 17 years in the league -- far exceeds his production.

When they want to panic Joseph Schwerdt Sun Sentinel Rex Ryan should give Tim Tebow the start on Monday night against the Texans if he wants to throw a bomb in an already volatile clubhouse. He should start Tebow if he's ready to pound on the panic button. Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano have done a pretty good job keeping Tebowmania bottled up. What they haven't done is use Tebow effectively. Tebow is the ultimate Wildcat weapon, but he hasn't been a factor in New York and has given no indication he can spark the offense.

Boston drama never ends Paul Doyle Hartford Courant This one's not even close — the Red Sox are beyond dysfunctional. Once considered baseball's model franchise after winning two titles in four years, the Red Sox are a mess. The team experienced an epic meltdown in 2011, and management responded by dumping manager Terry Francona before GM Theo Epstein bolted for the Cubs. The answer? Hire Bobby Valentine, a guy whose skin is too thin for Boston. Valentine accurately said the season has been miserable, as players revolted against their manager and the remnants of last year's "chicken-and-beer" collapse still lingered at Fenway Park.

Reflects the Tebow trend Shannon J. Owens Orlando Sentinel Madden football is a virtual yearbook of the previous season and a preview of what's to come. And while Calvin "Megatron" Johnson won the cover art honors, Tim Tebow is the homecoming king of the 2011-12 NFL season. You couldn't escape Tebowmania last year - and so far this offseason - so it's only appropriate that the video game reflects the trends. Player celebrations aren't exactly a new idea for Madden anyway.

He has the tools Andre D. Williams Allentown Morning Call I can't imagine any NFL coach looking at his roster and not being pleased having Tim Tebow on it. He was a prolific winner in high school and at Florida, and he has the physical tools, smarts and apparent determination to be a successful NFL quarterback. The Heisman Trophy winner, two-time first-team All-American and leader of Florida's 2009 national championship team has a resume that exceeds that of Oklahoma's Sam Bradford and Notre Dame's Jimmy Clausen.

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning hosted “Saturday Night Live” on Saturday night, and since I have little social life to speak of, I happened to catch his performance. Despite mostly awful and unfunny writing, Manning was solid, though he didn't come close to matching the laughs of his brother, Peyton, from a few years ago. And since Manning is a famous, Super Bowl-winning quarterback, of course there were a couple of skits loosely related to the NFL. One skit was about Manning awkwardly posing for touchdown celebrations for the new “Madden” game, and actors played New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow, Giants wide receiver Victor Cruz and Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis.

Dodgers fireballer Jansen Phil Rogers Chicago Tribune You might not have heard of Kenley Jansen. But he is well known to Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano and their teammates on the Dominican Republic's 2009 World Baseball Classic team. A catcher at the time, Jansen made one of the big plays in the Netherlands' upset that sent the DR team packing. He nailed Willy Taveras trying to steal second in the ninth inning. These days he does his damage from the mound.
