Here are five reasons why I'd buy a Tim Tebow Denver Broncos jersey:

  1. Tebow is a class act, and I think people hate him for it. Being more specific, he is an outspoken Christian. He lives out his faith and is a natural leader. Regardless of how he develops, Denver will benefit from Tebow’s character, humility, and intensity.
  2. I am a sucker for the underdog story. Tebow is an underdog. I have to admit that even I have my doubts about his ability to take his game to the next level. However, I am not going to make any gaurantees, like so many like to do, about how he will do. I am cheering for him and hoping that he proves all of the naysayers wrong.
  3. Tebow’s presence will serve as a nice counterbalance to Denver head coach Josh McDaniels' ego.
  4. I have full confidence in Tebow’s work ethic. It will be contagious, I think.
  5. No. 15 will be redeemed.
