Chuck Norris wrote a column about Tim Tebow. No, really, he did. We're going to excerpt a few of our favorite passages, but you can read the whole thing at NewsBusters, a site whose tagline reads, "Exposing & Combating Liberal Media Bias." Hey, we're not that different! We're trying to keep lies from conquering the minds of the week. But anyway, Chuck?

America has the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and the UCP (ultimate clutch players). One is mixed martial artists, and the other is quarterbacks of the NFL. They all are athletic warriors who are extremely determined to win. My favorite in the UFC is Georges St-Pierre. My favorite in the UCP is Tim Tebow. I know what you are thinking: Tebow has been in the NFL for only three years. True, but Tim's 2011 season with the Denver Broncos was one of the most remarkable in football history.

Yes, that season in which Tebow finished 31st in the NFL in Total QBR out of 34 qualifying QBs was certainly remarkable. THESE ARE THE THINGS THE LIBERAL MEDIA DOESN'T WANT YOU TO KNOW.

I've heard the critics say Tebow has poor technical skills, but the truth is that Tim is a natural leader, an amazingly gifted football player, an inspiration to his team and the possessor of intense determination and strategy to bring any team to victory — no matter what the odds. One can improve technique, but leadership is innate. That is why I believe that Tebow could be a superstar and legend in the NFL.

If he could beat out Mark Sanchez ...

All that is needed now is for the management of a football team to have the vision and faith to watch Tebow turn around the team. I guarantee they would see positive results. I have been an athlete all my life, being a six-time undefeated world middleweight champion in the martial arts, and I know a winner when I see one. Tim Tebow is a winner — plain and simple!

There you have it.
