Last night's Texans-Jets game wasn't just an opportunity for the country to see the NFL's best team in the national spotlight. (That would be the Texans in case you were wondering.) No. Naturally, with the New York Jets involved, it was an opportunity to revisit TebowMania.
Shockingly, ESPN was realtively reserved yesterday compared to their summer when SportsCenter covered Tim Tebow like the state controlled media of North Korea covered supreme leader Kim Jong-Il. The most over-the-top Tebowcentric item to emerge from Bristol was... wait for it... a Skip Bayless column devoted to his history with Tim Tebow. I would link to it, but I can't put that on my conscious.
As far as the game broadcast, how was Tebow covered? How many times was he mentioned and squeezed into the broadcast? Find out after the jump.
-There were 7 Tebow mentions in the pregame alone including Jon Gruden excitedly running down all the places you'd see Tebow in the game ...

Via Larry Brown Sports: Tim Tebow stoked some religious fires before the “Monday Night Football” game between the Jets and Texans by recognizing that this was the 666th edition of the program.
The New York Jets will take on the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, and they will do so with Mark Sanchez as the starting quarterback. How much longer he holds that position atop the Jets’ depth chart remains to be seen.
New York signed Sanchez to a ridiculous contract extension this offseason, one in which they may be regretting right now. He has played rather poorly to...
If you happen to enjoy watching the Jets get annihilated so much that you will listen through three hours of Tebow talk to get it, then I suppose this evening will be a celebration for you. Otherwise, it’s really a zero-sum contest for neutral observers. The Texans winning a huge boring blowout is the best possible outcome. Anything less than that and the narrative will be flooded...
After Arizona’s loss on Thursday night, the Texans, along with the Falcons, are one of the two undefeated teams left in the NFL.
Tonight, they take on the 2-2 Jets, who are coming into this game after a 34-0 loss to San Francisco last week.
The calls for Tim Tebow will surely be heard tonight if Mark Sanchez struggles.
Houston and New York square off tonight on Monday Night Football...
Sing it with me New York Jets fans Oh eee oh, Tee Bow. Oh eee oh, Tee Bow. The chant NFL Network talking heads Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders used during Tim Tebows rise to stardom (sort of) last year is poised to make its return soon. With the Jets offense in shambles, the only way to save the season may be to turn to the former Florida Gator. It is going to have to...
Mark Sanchez had his moments - good and bad - for the Jets. Tim Tebow, too.
But some of the Jets' biggest flaws were on full display in their 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans. They couldn't run the ball, the defense couldn't stop the run and Tebow still isn't running on the field much.
Rex Ryan says the Jets need to get their running game going for the offense to...
Rob Carpenter: Former New York Jet
If you’re a New York Jets fan, you probably have a lot of concerns right now. Injuries have sidelined Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes for the season, many fans and media are calling for Tebow to start, Mike Tannenbaum’s job may be on the line, and the list goes on and on. I recently spoke with former New York Jets wide receiver, Rob Carpenter...
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the New York Jets plan on using Tim Tebow more on Monday night against the Texans.
Glazer also says that Tebow got more practice time this past week . I wonder how much of that time was spent under center. Mark Sanchez has to be on thin ice right now.
At this point the Jets have no answers on offense at all. Tebow or Sanchez? Where’s first round pick from a few years ago in Shonne Greene. Santonio Holmes was their best offensive weapon and he’s done for the season. I think Antonio Cromartie was right when he said he was the second best receiver on the team. He beat Johnathan Joseph badly on a stop and go route on Monday...
If you don't play Fantasy Football, at least admire this photo of a cute puppy in Tim Tebow's arms.
What isn’t there to say that’s already been said about this victory for the Colts? Indianapolis played on emotion and had the heart of a champion to get the “W.”
With what looked like a decent Monday Night Football match up on paper when the 2012 NFL schedule was first released, the Texans at the Jets now looks like it could see the mercy rule invoked. With the Texans on the rise, consistently beating teams by double digits, the flailing Jets, who were embarrassed at home last week by a 34-0 thrashing, look to be heading in the opposite direction...
