Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow hasn’t only touched the football world with his great skills, but he’s touched the world with a new trend called tebowing. Now tebowing is when you get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different. This trend, called “tebowing” has taken over the world as vast amounts of people have been performing this act. One of those several people to perform this trend called “tebowing” was a Riverhead High School senior Connor Carroll. Carroll as well as his brother were suspended from school and from their baseball team for one game, here’s what Connor Carroll had to say.

Mike Ortiz: Are you a Broncos fan?

Connor Carroll: No. I am a New York Giants fan.

Mike Ortiz: When did you first get the idea of tebowing?

Connor Carroll: I first got the idea of tebowing on Thanksgiving. My family was gathered around watching the pregame show and CBS aired a segment in which people were tebowing all over the world in places such as the Vatican, Eiffel tower, etc…

Mike Ortiz: What made you want to do it in school?

Connor Carroll: We tebowed in school because we are all big Tim Tebow fans. It was supposed to be a small thing between my group of friends. It took a life of its own.

Mike Ortiz: How did you convince your friends to do it?

Connor Carroll: I did not need to convince my friends to do it. They are all fans of Tim Tebow and thought it would be cool to show our respect to Tim.

Mike Ortiz: How many times have you done this in school?

Connor Carroll: We tebowed once a day Monday through Wednesday. 3 times.

Mike Ortiz: Why did you guys get in trouble?

Connor Carroll: We got in trouble for blocking the halls. Administration has told the media we have been warned before therefore we were the only ones suspended. That is completely false. They are trying to connect an unrelated event two months ago. Our principal has even told us that event is unrelated. We were never warned.

Mike Ortiz: Did you think it was fair?

Connor Carroll: I do not think the suspensions were fair. We were not warned. There were up to 40 students involved and 38 get off with warnings? Quite ridiculous.

Mike Ortiz: Were your parents mad at you that you got suspended?

Connor Carroll: My parents were not mad. They thought it was funny. They were upset that we were singled out.

Mike Ortiz: Are you done tebowing forever?

Connor Carroll: I’m done tebowing in school because administration will overreact again. I’ll continue tebowing everywhere else though. Myself and Tebowing is linked now so I can’t stop.

Mike Ortiz: Looking back now do you think it was worth getting suspended to make all of the National Coverage etc?

Connor Carroll: Absolutely. It is not what we intended to do. I could never have imagined being on ESPN, FOX News, CBS, NBC, ABC, etc… I would do it all again without hesitation.

Revis Isn’t A Fan Of Tebow Time: He’s Actually A Critic

Revis the newest of the Tim Tebow critics.

Since coming into the NFL 2010 Tim Tebow has been repeatedly criticized by everyone; analysts, reporters, coaches, you name it. However he’s always answered them in a positive way avoiding any sort of controversy. Though since being named the starter week 7, Tebow has answered them in a new way; winning.

Since becoming the starting quarterback in week 7 for the Denver Broncos they have only lost one game which came to them in week 8 from the Detroit Lions, who won 45-10.

Though despite all the wins and great plays that has happened since making the switch to Tebow, he’s still getting criticized. Except this time, it’s a player. New York Jets corner back Darrelle Revis told the press that this offense won’t work for the rest of the season, “No, not for a whole season, because we know what they’re doing, and we feel comfortable in our game plan,” Revis said. “Yeah, if you have Michael Vick and, I don’t know, Chris Johnson at running back. Yeah, it can work. Those are probably the two fastest guys that can probably get out on the edge on you.”

Now if you look at the stats of both Vick and Johnson and compare them to Denver’s offense or to Tebow and running back Willis McGahee then Revis’ comments don’t make sense. On the season right now McGahee has 127 attempts for 640 yards and three touchdowns compared to Johnson who has 148 attempts for only 496 yards and two touchdowns.

Now when you compare Vick and Tebow, obviously Vick has the better numbers of the two as Tebow has only really played in four and half games. However, if you compare the two from Tebow’s first start on, Tebow wins. In Vick’s last four games he has rushed for 217 yards and zero touchdowns where as Tebow has rushed for 283 yards and one touchdown. Also in that stretch Tebow has been the better starter winning three games compared to Vick who only won two.

Despite being wrong about his comparison Revis wouldn’t stop there as he would go onto say, “We can’t fall asleep back there in the secondary,” Revis said. “It can get boring, especially when a team just keeps running the ball, series after series, play after play.”

Now you can call it what you want, boring or not. But this Denver offense has opposing defenses right they want them and on this Thursday night against the New York Jets ranked 15th against the run will experience something that they haven’t experienced all season long; Tim Tebow.
