Tebow's prayer request gets the smack down

Seems some soon-to-be NFL players don't share Tim Tebow's obsession with religion. From Pro Football Talk:

We're told that (Tim) Tebow already has gotten a taste of the resistance he might face at the next level.

At the Scouting Combine, the Wonderlic exam is administered to players in groups. The 12-minute test is preceded by some brief instructions and comments from the person administering the test.

Per a league source, after the person administering the test to Tebow's group had finished, Tebow made a request that the players bow their heads in prayer before taking the 50-question exam.

Said one of the other players in response: "Shut the f--k up." Others players in the room then laughed.

We're not passing judgment on this one; we're just passing along what we've heard. And it illustrates the type of challenges that could be faced by the team that drafts Tebow.

I wonder if the smack down was more aimed at the preaching of a religion or at the self-important preacher.
