We interrupt the ongoing coverage of the Sam Hurd story to resume the ongoing coverage of all things Tebow.

On Thursday, MDS pointed out that Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow told Bears cornerback Charles Tillman after an interception on Sunday, “You’re lucky. You’re lucky to get one.”

Tillman tells that Tebow wasn’t talking trash when he said it.

We were joking around,” Tillman said. “If you would have heard how he said it, it was pure joking. He was smiling, laughing. It was nothing. I don’t think it was trash talk or anything derogatory or anything like that. It was just good fun.”

It would be a lot more fun if it wasn’t. But at least Tillman isn’t going to Hell.
