Not since then-Sen. Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign, has an American figure’s arrival been so messianic as Tim Tebow’s second coming as an NFL starting quarterback. The Broncos are 3-1 since Tebow took over the starting job, but I don’t think that’s why his jersey has been customized with the name “Jesus” on the back where “Tebow” should be.
What does a Christ-like Tebow look like? A little clay No. 15 on a cross?
There is at least a picture of the Jesus jersey, though it’s unclear from this story how many have actually been made.
