Cordell Walker, Texas Ranger, has FINALLY weighed in on the controversial Tim Tebow debate that will never go away, regardless of how marginally terrible the quarterback plays (thanks for everything, ESPN). Yes, the infamous Chuck Norris has taken a break from winning American Idol using only sign language and slamming revolving doors to suggest that Tebow should still get a shot at success in the NFL.
Tebow is a player who rises to the occasion and delivers big in critical moments. He reminds me of myself when I used to compete in martial arts. I would spar with my black belts in class, and sometimes they would outscore me. Yet in the tournaments, I would defeat them. My students used to ask me, "Why is it that we can contend equally against you in class but can't beat you in the tournaments?" My answer was always the same: "When it counts, I rise to the occasion."
The same is true of the former Heisman Trophy winner: When pressure mounts and the game is on the line, Tim's turbo turns on. It has been said, "If a quarterback came through with a clutch, final-minute victory, he pulled a 'Tebow.'" And that is why he is the ultimate clutch player.
