It’s no question Tim Tebow is popular — but just how popular was reaffirmed Thursday.
In a Nielsen survey that asked who Americans would like to have as a guest for Thanksgiving, Tebow was the winner — over newly elected President Barack Obama. Tebow was picked by 23 percent of the voters, as opposed to 5 percent for Obama.
Those numbers won’t win any elections, but they do show promise for the backup Jets quarterback, who has said he’s thought about one day running for political office.
Tebow also held off Big Bird and Lady Gaga in the survey, but his support was nowhere near that of pumpkin pie, which easily took the favorite pie category with 44 percent of the vote.

Perhaps now Tebow will feel better about his teammates talking behind his back, but I wouldn’t count on it.H/T: Deadspin

Tim Tebow has been unhappy as of late due to his ever-shrinking role in the Jets’ offense, showing disinterest both through the press and on the sidelines.
Leave it to one of his devout followers to turn the backup quarterback’s frown upside down.
On Tuesday, New York Post reporter Bart Hubbuch snapped a photo of a “You’re Special” balloon bouquet, which was sent to Tebow by an anonymous fan.
Hubbuch’s colleague, Jane McManus, noted that Tebow thought it was “nice,” and said these kinds of things “happen sometimes.”
Hey, they don’t call them ‘Tebow-maniacs’ for nothing.

If you tuned into the Turkey Day tilt between the Patriots and Jets, you might've noticed the conspicuous lack of playing time for Tim Tebow.

On this fine Friday after Thanksgiving I have a few questions I need answered pertaining to the fine world of sports. Please feel more than free to answer any of these should you know the answers. Q: I really don’t like the guy, but why did the Jets trade for Tim Tebow if they are [...]
The New York Jets looked a lot like the team we all know they are tonight. This team has some serious problems and the answer is NOT Tim Tebow!
