I don't know how they can continue to be the case if his team continues to lose. Even Michael Vick was able to lead the falcons to the postseason after 2 or 3 years so next year all eyes will be on CAM.

Wonder what number is RG3 when it comes to jersey sales

The JETS Tebow Jersey in #8 and he doesn't even see the field. Griffin is currently #1. Luck is #6 by the way.

Wonder how Tebow jerseys will be selling when his NFL career is over by this next year

Popularity has nothing to do with winning games in the NFL ... see: Ocho Cinco, Ndamukong Suh, Darren McFadden, etc. even Marshawn Lynch was top-25 before the season started!

Suh and Cinco have been in the playoffs. Why is Mcfadden popular? Rushed for over 2000 yds?

To those questioning Cam's popularity: You do realize he's a total stud in fantasy, right? A segment of the audience so large that they inspired a hit sitcom?

What is it that happened>>>

Tebow goes from megastar in college to a big zero (by almost all accounts) as a Pro???

I know playing Pro is a lot different than college ball, but I don't get why there is such a huge discrepancy in his performances...

Share your opinion, please.

Basically, in Urban Meyer's spread option offense at Florida, Tebow mostly had to make more simple throws to receivers running horizontal type routes, and as such didn't really learn how to make good anticipatory throws, and can't acclimate to his receivers' timing.

.... and there are much better defensive players, teams, and coaches in the NFL.
