In the updated fan vote totals for the Pro Bowl, the Broncos’ Tim Tebow has the third-most tallies among AFC quarterbacks.
This is significant because three quarterbacks are named to the Pro Bowl team.
According to Mike Reiss of ESPNBoston.com, New England’s Tom Brady has the most votes among AFC quarterbacks with 1.1 million. Pittsburgh’s Ben Roethlisberger is second. Tebow is third with 420,539 votes.
In one sense it’s stunning Tebow is third considering he didn’t get his first start until Game 6. In another sense his vote totals are surprisingly underwhelming considering he’s the biggest star to rock the NFL since Joe Namath was the anti-establishment hero of the late-1960s.
