Tim Tebow is everywhere. You can't get away from Tim Tebow. If you've had enough of Tim Tebow already and you thought you would be able to fire up Madden '13 and have a safe place to get away from the New York Jets backup quarterback, keeping him safely stashed down on the depth chart while finding solace in seeing Mark Sanchez under center, you can't. The makers of Madden '13 have included 'Tebowing' this year.
Tim Tebow has become a cultural phenomenon. He might be the New York Jets' backup quarterback, but he has transcended the field in a way perhaps no one has before. He appeals to people that normally wouldn't even flip on an NFL game, while some who love the NFL can't stand him, but everybody watches. There will be a TV special about him on E! this summer, and now he has influenced Madden '13.
It's unclear exactly how Tebowing will be implemented in Madden '13. No one knows if it will be limited to Tebow or if any player can take part in Tebowing at the press of a button. What we do know, courtesy of Madden NFL creative Director Michael Young, is that Tebowing will be a part of Madden '13. EA Sports is holding true to its motto – if it's in the game, it's in the game.
Insert cringes from the Tebow haters. Which brings up a good question: why are there Tebow haters? A squeaky clean guy who has never said a bad thing about anyone, gives his spare time to help others and has overachieved by all accounts given his skill set and what he did as a starting quarterback last season. With some of the characters floating around the NFL, it is somewhat alarming that Tebow draws some much venom.
His own supporters have brought about some of that by their inability to see any shortcomings and their blind faith in him. But we should always strive to judge a player by what he does on the field and a person by what they do off of it.
All Tebow does is win – on and off the field. I'll just leave this here:
