The next Tebow, really?

I guess it was inevitable but last night when I saw the little tab on ESPN asking if Lin is the next Tebow I couldn’t believe it.

There stories are in no way similar. One came from nowhere, a guy that everyone looked past that has proved himself in a system that didn’t seem interested. A true underdog, an over achiever.

The other guy was a huge success in college, that entered the league to much fanfare that has slowly reached a point he was suposed to be in the first place. Compared to his past he is in many was an underachiever, and this coming from a fan.

The only thing in common is they are both devout. Is the sports media that simple that they can compare two guys for one reason.

If you want to draw a comparison from football I would go this way.
