Tim Tebow Is Still America’s 5th Favorite Quarterback
It’s been over three years since Tim Tebow played in an NFL regular season contest, and he hasn’t started a game since January 2012, when his Denver Broncos lost in the AFC Divisional Round to the New England Patriots.
With that in mind, you wouldn’t even expect Tebow to be ranked in a poll of America’s favorite NFL quarterbacks. But he is…in 5th spot.
Public Policy Polling surveyed 410 football fans earlier this month, asking them questions ranging from who they thought would win Super Bowl 50, to who their favorite and least favorite NFL quarterbacks are.
When it comes to America’s favorite quarterbacks, Tom Brady ranked first with 23 percent of the vote, followed by Peyton Manning (16%), Aaron Rodgers (13%), Cam Newton (11%), Tebow (7%), Russell Wilson, Eli Manning, Ben Roethlisberger (all 6%), and Drew Brees (4%)—with “any other/no favorite” taking the remaining eight percent.
At this point, we should question Public Policy Polling’s reasoning for even including Tebow in their ballot, but whatever. I guess it gives us something to talk about.
On the flip side, Tebow did rank second in “Least Favorite Quarterback” polling, behind Tom Brady. So I guess America isn’t completely out of whack.
Too bad Johnny Manziel‘s name wasn’t included in the survey. I’m guessing it’s because no one really thinks of Johnny as an NFL quarterback.
