Tim Tebow seems to still be a fan favorite regardless of playing in the NFL or not. Ridiculed for his beliefs, he still tops the NFL charts as one of the most liked NFL players.
“Despite the fact that Tim Tebow hasn’t taken a regular season snap in the NFL in over three years, his popularity doesn’t seem to be hurting. According to a recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling, Tebow is the fifth-most popular NFL quarterback in America. In the poll of 410 “self-described NFL fans” taken on Feb. 2 and 3, 7 percent of respondents said that Tebow was their favorite quarterback. That makes the unemployed NFL quarterback more popular than Russell Wilson (6 percent), Eli Manning (6 percent) andDrew Brees (4 percent). It’s probably hard for America to dislike Tebow when he’s doing things like hosting 32,000 special needs teenagers at a prom event that spanned the entire globe. The only quarterbacks who were more popular than Tebow were Tom Brady, Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Cam Newton.”– Reported by John Breech
