The education of Tim Tebow is also a chance for the rest of us to be reminded of some essential truths: that we must continually create spaces for new ways of seeing and understanding old systems.
In my mid-fall mailbag, I answer to the slew of Tim Tebow haters and lovers -- with this guy, it's really one or the other -- talk about the Colts' prospects of trading Peyton Manning and further dish on why Duke's Austin Rivers is a star in the making.
Rife with intriguing storylines, the Jets represent the Broncos' most imposing test since installing a new yet completely outdated offense two weeks ago.
For the uninitiated, Tebowing is defined as, "to get down on a knee and start praying, even if everyone else around you is doing something completely different."
In the fifth episode of Sports Blitz Now -- the brand new Huffington Post sports radio show -- Jordan Schultz and the crew break down the Tim Tebow fiasco and fully preview Saturday's monstrous 1-2 LSU-Alabama showdown in Tuscaloosa.
Tebow came in to the Chargers game and almost won the game for the Broncos. That's how sad things are for Broncos fans this year: almost winning is VERY exciting stuff indeed.

With the Tebow era beginning in Denver and the Orton era winding down, it will be interesting to see if the Broncos can garner value for their now-depreciating asset.
I've tried to root for both the University of Colorado Buffaloes and the Denver Broncos in the No Fun League -- and it's been no fun at all. It's not just that they lose because losing I can live with.
Kyle Orton is the Anti-Tebow. He is the polar opposite of the preseason sentimental favorite for the Bronco QB job in almost every way. The controversy wasn't about skill -- it was about his image.
Denver Broncos' quarterback Tim Tebow, a reliable source of off-the-field controversy, ruffled some feathers this week with comments that he felt that his dream of being a starting NFL QB ''was grabbed back away" by the franchise.
Writing the Great American Novel seemed out of the question. So instead I set out to write the Decent Denver Novel. Why Denver, you ask? Why not Denver, I say.
They say sports and politics don't mix. One sportswriter disagrees with that. In fact, he would argue that professional sports has always been political and has been a positive force in shaping American society.
Losing in a Super Bowl does not make an NFL quarterback any less of a legend. Just like being in and winning a Super Bowl surely does not automatically grant legendary status to a quarterback.

Denver has a rich history of many things. Unfortunately, that includes a band of overzealous parking police that will ticket you for looking at them wrong.
