Hall of Famer Deion Sanders, [Devin] Hester’s mentor, is perplexed by the debate regarding Tebow’s ongoing testimony.
“Tebow is taking a lot of criticism not just because of his faith. He’s taking criticism because he’s abnormal,” said Sanders, now an analyst for the NFL Network. “The things he’s doing and the success he’s having is not normal, and people have a hard time buying into what they haven’t seen. Then to top it all off, he exercises his faith.
“To me, a young, successful guy or woman, regardless of their ethnicity, who exercises what they believe in and what they truly stand for, no matter what it is, it shouldn’t be a problem.”
