Herm Edwards on Tim Tebow -- Wisdom

So, I was listening to Colin Cowherd this morning whilest driving around to various appointments, and Herm Edwards was on talking about Tim Tebow, and the question came up about Tebow's faith. Edwards had I think the best and most accurate take on it that I've heard -- (maybe later I'll actually remember to link to the segment)

Paraphasing, it went along these lines: Tebow, as a person of faith, recognizes his talents as coming from God (something Edwards as a Roman Catholic also understands) - thus, he's a hard worker who is determined to not let his God given talent go to waste, and this in turn helps to motivate his teams to work has as well. This hard work is manifesting itself in games -- people might call it luck or something like that, but it's not. Hard work and conditioning pay off - especially in the fourth quarter when people are tired and can lose focus and make more mistakes.

Fantastic stuff.
