Inside the Grid

While polarizing among pundits, Tebow is a winner with athletes. "I like the story of an underdog," says Boyle, who knows about overachievers. (An undrafted free agent, he's won a Stanley Cup and two All-Star nods.) "People may not like the way he's doing it," adds Jenkins, "but he's getting the job done."
