What does Tim Tebow consider ‘bigger than football every single day of my life’?

People are still obsessing about Tim Tebow’s football career, but the SEC analyst wants people to shift their attention to another aspect of his life—his humanitarian efforts.

Through the Tim Tebow Foundation, Tebow is raising funds to help provide medical care for children who are ill or have special needs. He hosted the 6th annual Celebrity Golf Classic last Friday, which was able to raise more than $5.5 million for that purpose, according to The Florida Times Union.

“Tonight is about these kids,” Tebow said during the event. “It’s not about football. It’s about what we’re doing, through faith, hope and love and the people we serve all over the world. That’s going to be bigger than football every single day of my life.”

“I look forward to this every year,” he added. “This is a special time. It’s loving people with special needs, caring for people with special needs, about who is being loved and who is being served.”

Aside from the Tebow Cure Hospital in the Philippines, the money raised during the event will also go to Timmy’s Playrooms for young hospital patients in the U.S.; the Night to Shine Prom, which treats special needs children to a fun-filled Valentine’s Day; and W15H, which grants wishes to children with life-threatening illnesses.

Gator Heisman Trophy winner Danny Wuerffel said that it’s a shame that Tebow’s football career was put to a halt. But because of the things Tebow is doing to help those in need, Wuerffel does not doubt that Tebow will accomplish great things.

“Football is obviously the most known and recognized thing to a lot of people, but when you look at the platform he has, his greatest years are yet to come, whether he plays in a Super Bowl or never plays again,” he said.

The same sentiment is echoed by Tebow’s current colleague Paul Finebaum. “We were all devastated when last year didn’t work out,” he said. “But I believe there’s something much bigger for Tim. What is it? Evangelist is a big word. It can mean a lot of things. Tim has that type of appeal. He can do it on a worldwide basis that would really have a profound impact on young people and people of all ages, all over the world.”

    Tebow is the type of role model the NFL does not want.

    Been away from the computer lately – how’s the offseason crime spree by the NFL players going?

    Anyone sent to the big house?

      Andrea, u r too funny…”How’s the offseason crime spree by the NFL–Anyone sent to the big house?” Seems to be that is what it is all about lately and dirty deals not done dirt cheap!

    Dak Prescott got a DUI 2 days after the combine. Everyone immediately decided that he would be drafted by the Dallas Cowboys. 🙂
    I used to work with a Dallas fan and he made coffee in the office and called it Cowboy coffee.
    I asked him one day if that was the kind of coffee that they serve at the the Dallas County Jail.

    Tebow is inspiring and glad he has all these “GOOD DEEDS” to prove it!

    I found this in a forum that translated the article from a French website. There’s a little discussion afterwards.

      I like this and have my fingers crossed. Looks like Tim’s agent is more focused on money and his cut than Tim playing football while he’s still young.

    • Danny says:

      That was my take too and it showed a side of things that really haven’t been reported before. Quite fascinating.

      Keep in mind this is a very recent article from 3/16; A 3:16 reference?? Nah.

      I think basically that there are a few takeaways from the article; things we knew about and some we didn’t…

      1. Tebow and Popp talked during the middle of the CFL season back in 2014. We knew about the discussion back in 2014, but not a lot of the circumstances behind it or even when it was.

      2. Jim Popp was and still is a big Tebow fan and would still bring him in to play. We knew of interest before but this confirms current interest.

      3. Tim’s agent sounds like he’s pushing Tim to more lucrative TV contacts and less on football. We had a suspicion this might be the case and this is the closet we’ve seen any admission to this in print.

      4. Tim and his agent haven’t had contact with Jim Popp or Montreal since their discussions back in 2014. This was something that we didn’t know.

      If Tim decided to join the CFL, it would immediately create a buzz that would rival the NFL in media coverage. He would be able to showcase the talents we all know he has, and finally (near and dear to him) he would be able to introduce his amazing charitable work to Canadians. Honestly I wouldn’t mind if he stayed there as obviously the NFL is a one-dimensional league anymore and not open to changes.

      By the way it sounds in this article, if Tim wanted to play football, he’s got an open door to Canada. He’d have to work out an equitable deal as the CFL as a whole would massively benefit from Tim’s presence. I believe they max out in salary at $350K, so other things would have to be added to compensate Tim properly. Perhaps endorsements, some type of ownership stake, who knows?

      Or, perhaps there’s an NFL deal being discussed and he’s hanging tight for that.

      Anyway, great article, even though the translation left a lot to assume what was said.

      • Sage says:

        Although Tim probably pays too much deference to his lousy agent, I doubt he would let Sexton persuade him to do TV instead of take the best path for football. TV should always be there, even more so after a strong pro career.

        But Tim can’t stay in limbo forever. It’s probably time to call the CFL.

        Heck, I thought he should have taken the million bucks to play football with the Russians. His mission is strengthened when he plays.

    Tim has certainly found his calling, but it’s nice to know that he has already conquered football.

    Breaking News. Tim Tebow outscored the 2015 Broncos QBs and running backs with almost half the touches.

    @PColaG8r @BartHubbuch 2015 Broncos All QBs & RBs:1017 Touches 32 TDs 23 INTs. Tebow in Denver: 580 touches 32 TDs 9 INTs. Wouldn’t Improve?

    Tebow actually scored 32 TDs and 2 two point conversions in 549 touches.

    • TheMascotArmy says:

      That’s good. But that assumes that scoring TDs is more important than dinks and dunks.

      • David says:

        I know what you mean. The NFL QBR formula gives more credit for completion percentage than it does for touchdowns and low interceptions.
        I did a comparison of Tebow and Bradford showing this. Tebow scored 66.5% more often passing than Bradford in their first 16 and his QBR would only be 2 points higher.
        QBR
        Tebow threw 19 TDs in 374 attempts with 47.3%, 9 ints averaging a TD every 19.6 attempts 15.3 yards per completion scoring every 9.3 completions QBR 78.49
        Bradford threw 18 TDs in 590 attempts with 60%, 15 ints averaging a TD every 32.77 attempts 9.92 yards per completion scoring every 19.66 completions. QBR 76.46
        The QBR system of rating QBs is rigged to favor high completion percentages. Tebow scored more times than Bradford with 216 fewer pass attempts and fewer interceptions and only rated 2 points higher. The NFL QBR formula is trash to put it mildly. It penalizes QBs that pass aggressively and score often. It rewards QBs that throw less than 10 yards and rarely score.

    Hey, Elway: a QB who went 7-4 as a starter for you, won the division and a playoff game IS available. Huge star in Denver. Guy named Tebow.
