    An 8-year-old cancer patient, Blake Appleton, received a much-needed morale boost recently -- a surprise phone call from his long-time hero Tim Tebow of the Denver Broncos.

    The call came this month at a particularly grim time for Blake and his family. Blake, a native of Lake Worth, Fla., recently had told his mother that he no longer wants to undergo cancer treatment after being diagnosed with a deadly brain tumor. "Without treatment, he may only have six months," his mother, Miranda Appleton, told

    I love Tebow for doing that. I'm saying a prayer for that boy.

    There aren't enough stories about this kind of stuff with athletes.

    It makes me love Tebow even more. You just don't see star athletes with this amount of class anymore. My heart goes out to the boy and I sincerely hope he can overcome the tumor.

    I've said it before and I'll say it again, we should root for guys like Tebow. Yes they get talked about a lot, yes sometimes they may get overhyped a bit. But the fact is, they do what you would expect a professional athlete to do and they're good teammates.

    He reminds me of Romo in those respects and he plays for an AFC team, so I hope he continues doing well.

    The more success Tebow has in the NFL, the more people he can reach and inspire. I hope the guy wins back-to-back-to-back Super Bowls, ugly throwing motion be damned.

    The more I learn about the guy, the more I want him to succeed beyond his most ardent supporter's dreams for him.

    Please don't let that be with the Stancos, Steelers, Cheatriots, 49ers, Saints, Packers, or any NFC East team.

    Yeah I don't know how you can deal with something like that. I know you have to, but I don't know how you can. You're completely helpless..

    Tim Tebow is a fine young man. He just does not look to me like he will ever be much more than a temporary fix as a QB.

    The SB wins are fine so long as he is Cowboy by then.

    I hope the guy has a good career but I want the Boys to stomp on him when we play him. He can win all the other games.

    I agree with you on that. But I also believe that lots of guys do similar things like this and don't want it publicized.

    I don't know, but one thing he seems to have is a unwavering desire to learn and get better. That will only bode well for him. He may never develop into anything more than a serviceable passer, but who cares as long as he wins? With all the knucklehead athletes out in this world, it is refreshing to have someone like Tebow.

    I'm sure there are. But I don't for one minute think Tebow does this for the publicity. As a matter of fact, I'm sure Tebow didn't mention this to the media. I bet the family did.

    if he only developes into a mediocre to average passer, he will never be able to take a team very far. The Top D's will shut him down for sure.
