TIm Tebow 'Jesus' Jerseys Pop Up

Want to customize a Denver Broncos jersey? Well, it might be time to take No. 15, Tim Tebow's number, and get "Jesus" put on the back of it. Fans are already doing it while people complain about it because it is sacrilegious. Tebow doesn't know what to think about it since he doesn't know the reasons why fans are doing it (though it's pretty obvious it isn't about praising Jesus, I think).

Now, the NFL could have revised its restricted list for names to be put on jerseys, but this 2005 one shows (NSFW language) that "JESUSCHRIST" and "JESUS CHRIST" are banned from being. Jesús being a popular name, though, keeps it on the allowed list.

So, having "Jesus" on the back of the list offends a segment of the population. Just take a look at that banned list, if you haven't already, and tell me if any of those would be better alternatives for jerseys with Tebow's number on them.
