I have a theory, and it’s just a theory, that I have toiled around in my head for the past 24 hours; I think Tim Tebow is cursed. Let’s think about some things.
The following has happened to the New England Patriots since signing the former Florida Quarterback:
Does all the positive moral energy that comes from having Tim Tebow on the roster drain whatever good joojoo is left from all the other players? Is there a scientific or mathematic balance principle that could describe this phenomenon? Right now, within popular culture or the media, the Tim Tebow effect is being a story shield from the actual failing aspects or seedier underbellies of your team (See Jets, New York). But what if there is a deeper aspect in play?
Tim Tebow galvanized the Denver community. I was living in New Mexico while he was with the Colorado team and it felt like when I exhaled I breathed in Tim Tebow stories. He had everything working for him. When he left, his energy had to be replaced:
Is Tim Tebow a reverse cancer? Does he clean up images and wither-away the ability for the players on his teams – even going back to Denver – to stay healthy?
It’s too early to tell. And as a Patriots fan, that freaks me out.
