    Ray Lewis Hates Tebow?

    Reverend Ray has some interesting thoughts on Pastor Tebow. Here is what Ray had to say to Colin Cowherd on ESPN Radio:

    Lewis was candid when asked by Colin Cowherd during The Herd if he was shocked by how big the Tebow story became leading up to and during the draft. “The thing I was more shocked by, is you see all the people who were willing to help him,” Lewis responded. “I don’t know many people who were willing to help other athletes like that. Jon Gruden loved him to death. You see all these people who took out their personal time to really work with him and make this big issue, big issue, big issue. I don’t know why he was any different than anyone else. Every young child has that dream, that same dream that Tebow had. So I don’t know why he was bigger, than any of the other guys. He went to a big program, and, yes, he might be a favorable person, but nobody else in the league, definitely not veteran players, see themselves differently than any other player.”

    In essence Ray finds it curious that so many people bent over backwards to ensure that Tebow became a 1st round pick. It appears he feels that other players should be afforded the same “help”.

    I think you can read between the lines, but I am going to leave that up to the reader to understand what Ray is really trying to say.

    To answer his question the reason people are helping and slurping over Tebow has nothing to do with his skills as a quarterback, but his superstardom.

    Make no mistake Tebow is a superstar, he has tons of “followers” that worship the ground he walks on.

    When you have that type of juice, $$$$$$$$$$ follows and people want a piece of that pie. They want to be a part of Team Tebow because it will help their pockets and reputations and that is why everyone has a hand out.

    None of this is a reflection of Tebow. If numerous people wanted to help me succeed I would accept it as well. If that help makes him into a top flight quarterback then he would have been a fool not to accept it.

    He has to know that there is a huge target on his back. Veterans and rookies do not like the attention he is getting without proving anything on the field. Don’t be shocked if some of these guys want to take him out and kill the legend that is Tim Tebow.

    They want to show people he doesn’t walk on water, they want to drown him. There is probably some jealousy involve, probably some racial undertones and some people who just don’t like bible thumpers.

    Whatever the issue is, they will use that motivation and take it out on Tebow. I hope he is up for the challenge.

    Ppl bent over backwards for him to make sure he would go round 1?

    All I ever heard were former UF players and current NFL players bashing him on how he could never be a QB in this league.

    He used Gruden as an example? He loves everyone. Who cares

    He's just jealous because he is a murderer and Tebow is a saint.

    He doesn't have a problem with Tebow personally, but just the circumstances surrounding him pretty much being the biggest story of the draft and the "biggest" pick of the draft, but I find his argument somewhat flawed.


    Soon...

    Ray Lewis eats people, so if I were Tebow I'd look out for my well being. I actually take precautions everyday so I don't get eaten
    Don't forget about Dre.

    I agree with Lewis 100%, at least there is someone in the NFL who has the balls to say that Tebow is not a football player, he is a product. A great personallity, who has christian ideals, how does that not sell? If he were a politician he would be shoe in for President. If I were a GM I would love him for PR, and hate him on the field. IMO he was a 3rd round talent at best. Maybe I will eat my words one day........ but I doubt it.

    Ray Lewis should focus on improving his game because he is becoming kind of washed up and running his mouth way too much lately

    yeah i see this turning into a race issue.

    "Ray has a problem with Tebow because he is white, if he were black, Lewis wouldn't have an issue with him".

    Lol. Lewis has proven more than Tebow and is one of the most respected players in history. He can voice his [valid] opinion all he wants. Everything Lewis said was spot on.

    It is just certain people trying to make this into something its not, i.e. "its a race thing", "lewis hates tebow"...

    Im sorry, but i am missing the part in the article where it says anything about hating him. This seems like a whole lot of nothing to me.
