Howie Long: Tim Tebow a 250-pound Ghandi who’ll run you over

It almost goes without saying at this point: If you’re a football personality who goes on a national sports show, you’ll be asked about New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.

Hate it or hate it, errr, I mean, love it or hate it, it’s going to happen.

It was no different Wednesday morning, when Hall of Fame defensive end Howie Long joined NFL Network’s “NFL AM.” (C’mon, you thought a show with a “Daily Tebow” segment wasn’t going to ask about the media’s favorite backup quarterback?)

“It’s interesting. He (Tebow) handles his detractors with Ghandi-like poise,” Long said. “The only difference is he’s a 250-pound Ghandi that will run you over.

“He might be the most positive guy I’ve ever seen. Through the ups, the downs, the pluses, the minuses, three quarters, fourth quarter, last part of the game, he’s so positive. He makes Tony Robbins look like he’s in a full depression.”

In case you’re keeping score, Long compared Tebow to both a non-violent civil disobedience leader and a famous American self-help author.
