Tim Tebow’s Marketing Potential

OPEN SportsI am tired of hearing “football experts” opinion that Tim Tebow does not have the make-up to be an NFL quarterback.  “He’s too heavy.” “He starts his throwing motion too close to the ground.” “He takes too long to release the ball.” “He does not find the open receiver.” “His build is more suited for a fullback or tight-end.”  Tebow recently stated that all he wants is a chance to prove himself as a quarterback at the next level.  He will be given that chance, but even if he does not succeed in that position, he will still make enough money to support his lifestyle for the rest of his life.

As an agent, I have not involved myself in the sport of football as much as in my other divisions.  Sometimes I cannot stand the characters involved.  I am generalizing here, but football agents at times care less about ethics and the players often lack any sense of loyalty.  Tim Tebow is the type of player who would make me forget that and instead be wishing he was a client of my agency.

Tebow will likely be a first round pick, even though it is unknown how he will fare on the professional field.  However, aren’t all college football players risks?  Eric Crouch and Gino Torretta won the Heisman Trophy.  They didn’t do anything in the NFL.  If the Jacksonville Jaguars draft Tebow, as many assume they will, the Jacksonville native will immediately increase ticket sales.  The NFL is a business at its core, and ticket sales drive team earnings.  Jacksonville has done a pathetic job of filling its seats making many believe, not too long ago, that the team would move to Los Angeles.

photo-gatorTebow is a marketing agent’s dream.  Tim was not even supposed to live past birth.  He survived and was home schooled, while he parents instilled a strong sense of faith in him.  That explains the eye blacks that Tebow used every game as a college football player.  Each week, he displayed a verse from the Bible.  He cares about three things: His family, his faith, and service.  Every year, Tim goes to the Philippines to do missionary work.

The guy who many believe can run better than he can pass, just threw for 482 yards against Cincinnati, who was undefeated going into the Sugar Bowl.  Tim Tebow shows his emotions.  If he is not smiling on the field, he is probably crying, but he is a guy who any team would want on their side and any company would want endorsing their products.  Whether he makes it as a professional Quarterback or not, he will be successful in life and a great return for any company that invests their money in him.

    Tim Tebow’s Marketing Potential —> Limitless!

    I think that Tim Tebow will not be taken in the first round. Most of the experts are right about his throwing motion starting too low and his footwork is horrible.

    I can see some teams looking at him in the second or third round. No one is going to pay him top rookie money to be a backup. Jacksonville has a young qb who is good anyway. I don’t see him going there.

    Excellent post, Darren.

    Whether Tebow ends up playing QB or not, it doesn’t really matter. The only question that matters is this: will he help an NFL team win?

    I believe Tebow has the rare ability to help any organization win.

    Like the great coach Vince Lombardi once said, “Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all-the-time thing. You don’t win once in a while, you don’t do things right once in a while, you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit.”

    Tebow has a habit of winning like no one else. I can’t wait to see where he’s selected. And even better, I can’t wait to see what he does on the field.

    In total agreement here. I think with the right agent and the right conbine, he’s going to go high. Jacksonville is a great fit actually.

    If he’s not a QB, I could still see him on the field. He’s the kind of player you just want on the team.

    Sounds like you’re pitching to be his agent… =) Would love nothing more than to see it for you! If you wanted it.

    Great post!

    I like your take on Tim… recently wrote a post about Tebow’s SuperBowl Ad. Florida fans love the post and my cynical Buckeye faithful are still on the fence.

    I AM NELSON MAGANA. I OWN THE ONE PRAYER ONE WORLD ONE STRENGTH I.P.nike GOT A HOLD OF THIS I.P. OM MAY 2008. CHECK ONE PRAYER ONE WORLDONE STRENGTH –“HEAVY LOAD” on facebook /TWITTER: @ONESTRENGTH this is the letter i sent to CNN for their HUGE PARTICIPATION ON THIS tebowing BULLSHIT. To all the people of CNN: The ugly truth is that you show funny video clips from Youtube(there’s nothing wrong about that.Sometimes, those videos lighten up my day too..), you featured “UNHATE” Campaign which is PERSONALLY and RELIGIOUSLY OFFENDING AND DISTURBING and “TEBOWING” which is a form of BRANDING (and I AM NOT AFRAID TO SAY) nike HAD STOLEN FROM ME (one prayer. one world. one strength. -facebook) how much did they pay you…? BUT YOU DO NOT SHOW THE WORLD THE ONLY VIDEO THAT CAN AND WILL UNITE US ALL (Youtube:One Prayer One World One Strength -that I keep on tweeting you about).. “tebowing”(the world is truly on its direct path to hell)is a nike BRAND.Before, it is simply called “GENUFLECTING” that we associate to something SACRED AND HOLY AND MOST OF ALL GOD. Now, (Thanks to you I hope you deeply understand and have truly regret what you have done..)whenever we see people “GENUFLECTING”, we think of “tebow” and “nike”. GOOD HEAVENS…. But what if tim’s SURNAMEISBUTTKISS….or…ASSKISS….or…(blow)JOB….or…. JACK..or…(masteur)BATE….or…DICKSUCK….or…PHART…or …RIM…or BEST, PHACK. (you know what I mean…MERRY CHRISTMAS!)

    I am Nelson Magana. I am ONESTRENGTH. I am “ONE PRAYER. ONE WORLD.ONE STRENGTH.”. By blessing, I created “One Prayer. One World. One Strength.”Will this make me rich?- I do not know. I hope so. I just want to give my family thebest life I could give them and I want to make the world a much better place for myson… Will this kill me?- I hope not, but I am ready… Am I evil?- Absolutely not. In the battle against good and evil I am the first line of defense… Am I afraid?- Yes, butI use my fear to keep my self from harm and to always be one step ahead of thosewho will or who plan to do me harm… Am I alone?- I believe so, but sooner or laterI am sure one by one, my guardians will show themselves. Anyway, I AM ONESTRENGTH… Am I crazy?- I hope and I pray so, because if I am not,then our world as we know it is already nearing its end… Am I the BEARER OFLIGHT?- Yes, because if most of us will see the world the way I see it, then it willbecome a much better place for our children. I AM NOT LUCIFER, for those stupid enough to think that I am… Do I believe our world is worth saving?- If not for my son…… Hypothetically, if I am right, can we still save our world?- Yesof course. As I had said, ONE PRAYER. ONE WORLD. ONE STRENGTH. Is the”stone the builders rejected (luke Chapter 20)….”, all we need to do is to accept theSTONE, change our ways then, all good things will follow… And for those people/company who are tempting me with strippers and sluts, YOU have to think better. You can not profile me because I am not ONE. And if by thedevil you had succeeded in blowing my brains out, save some (for cloning) becauseyou need it. Yours are too primitive. Obsolete. And guys, If you think that I trust all my internet accounts, you have to think again…I just use them as evidence… And in case I didn’t see ya, good morning, good afternoon, good evening and good night! 🙂

    In my own humble opinion, Luke Chapter 20 is mainly about”THE STONE THE BUILDERS REJECTED HAS BECOME THE CORNERSTONE”Luke 2012(Luke Chapter 20 verse 12) please note thesignificance and coincidence of “2012””HE SENT STILL A THIRD, AND THEY WOUNDED HIM AND THREW HIM OUT” I encourage and I dare all the thinkers, think tanks, geniuses,bible scholars, anyone to think and come up with anything thatcan unite all mankind….Religion can not unite all mankind, the Muslims and Christians alone have been killing each otherever since…Miracle, asteroid and comet impact, other cosmic disasters, alien invasion and global disasters….naaaah…Thosedo not count…Only mankind has the ability to unite mankind through “One Prayer.One World. One Strength.” but this One Prayer. One World. OneStrength.- is probably THE STONE THE BUILDERS REJECTED..And I am so positive that this will become THE CORNERSTONE..As I had said before, the fate of the whole world lies in the hands ofjust a few men…except God of course…These men together withtheir families and associates have their personal interests andagendas, may it be wealth or power or both, and no matter whatthe cost, they will not allow us to achieve the POWER the STRENGTH that we may and we can use against THEM once WE ARE UNITED AS ONE…Believe what you want to believe, but WARS were caused mainlyby one thing alone, GREED. I pity all the soldiers, their children,their families and all the victims of wars who have died or who are dying, who have suffered and who are still suffering for this WRONGCAUSE…Personally, I do not want to believe in what I am saying…How I wishthat I am just crazy….obsessed…BECAUSE IF I AM RIGHT, THENTHE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT IS ALREADY NEARING ITS END.Ask yourselves WHY for hundreds and even thousands of years doesthis chance to unite us all APPEARED JUST NOW…? Of the 7 billion living, and the billions who had lived anddied in this world, am I just the CRAZIEST, MOST STUPID, WORTHLESS, NOTHING BETTER TO DO S.O.B. who have thoughtof this for no reason…? Probably not. ONE PRAYER. ONE WORLD. ONE STRENGTH.It is for you to decide…GODSPEED.GOD HELP US.GOD SAVE US.
