Hail Tebow

                                          Love him
Oh boy.  Today we’ll witness one of the most embarrassing moments in Miami Dolphins history.  And no I’m not talking about the game that I fully expect the Dolphins to lose (no doubt in some strange unpredictable way).   I’m talking about the fact the organization is actually taking the time honor the starting quarterback of the opposing team.   Surely this is a first in National Football League history.  Yes, technically the Dolphins are honoring not the Denver Broncos’ QB but the 2008 Florida Gators national championship team, but they picked today as Gator day because currently on the Denver Broncos roster is one Tim Tebow, the man who led the Gators to the title, and an athlete far more popular and exciting than anyone who’s worn a Miami Dolphins’ uniform in the last 12 years.  Ok, maybe the Dolphins couldn’t have known Tebow would be named his team’s starting QB the very week of this game (proving I was right about Orton) but WTF?  South Florida isn’t Gator Country.  I went to UF and love Tebow and that 2008 Gator team but this is just a joke.  The Dolphins share a stadium with the Miami Hurricanes, a program that’s won five national titles in the time since the Dolphins last won a Super Bowl.   There’s no reason to alienate your community and piss off your players except to sell a few extra tickets to rabid Tebow fans (a plan that worked it must be admitted).  But overall it’s just one more step on this organization’s path to becoming the NFL’s biggest laughing stock.  It’s one more sign that nobody in the organization has a clue as to what they are doing.  It’s one more example that the owner, coach, and GM…ah, what’s the point?!  You want to sell more tickets?  Find a good coach.  Get a real quarterback.  WIN SOME GAMES!!!
