Tim Tebow has not started an NFL game since 2012, where he got the nod twice from the freakin’ Jets. In fact, during that season, he made 12 total appearances for New York, completing a whopping 6-of-8 passes for 39 yards.
But even though he hasn’t played a regular season snap since then, America’s thirst for Tebow remains unquenched and somewhat disturbing.
In a recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, Tebow managed to place ahead of Russell Wilson, as America’s 5th favorite NFL quarterback. While I realize it’s just a random poll and perhaps one that was taken in Gainesville, still, how the hell does an afterthought like Tim Tebow, who is currently an analyst for the SEC Network, end up FIFTH?
Reading off these top five QBs kinda reminds me of when a baffled Jerry says to George, “Ruth, Gehrig, DiMaggio, Mantle… COSTANZA!?”
I guess this just proves TebowMania cannot be killed even if his last NFL moments were seen as an understandably confused, useless quarterback/fullback/special teams guy for the New York Jets.
