Tim Tebow, 'The Biggest Loser'It was NFL Week on 'The Biggest Loser' (Tue., 8PM ET on NBC), which was especially difficult for the Black Team's Antone, a former NFL professional himself. They were joined in a challenge by Clay Matthews, Tony Gonzalez and Drew Brees, which was exciting in itself.

But then they got the opportunity to work out with a pro for their last chance workouts. Shawne Merriman worked out with the Black Team, Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson joined the 50+ Blue Team, and the Red Team were treated to Tim Tebow, who definitely got them fired up.

Focus on the Family Tackles Super Bowl With Pre-Game Ad

Why all this controversy over a commercial? Does it involve singing dogs or the Budweiser lizards discussing the point at which life begins? Am I the only person in the universe who watches the Super Bowl... to watch the actual Super Bowl?
