Tim Tebow takes the league lead in jersey sales

NFL_tebow.jpgFor all of our friends in Jacksonville who continue to insist that drafting quarterback Tim Tebow wouldn’t have helped cement the Jaguars in place for the next decade or longer, here’s the ultimate rebuttal.

Darren Rovell of CNBC reports that the league leader in jersey sales made through NFLShop.com for the period of April 1 through June 30 is none other than Mr. Tebow.  And that’s not just among rookies — it’s among all NFL players.

Considering that he wasn’t even on any NFL team for a third of the reporting period, it shows that Tebow brings to the table the kind of entry-level marketing punch not seen since Reggie Bush was taken No. 2 overall in 2006.

Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb finished at No. 2, followed by Saints quarterback Drew Brees.  Colts quarterback Peyton Manning, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, and Vikings quarterback Brett Favre (who still hasn’t committed to playing in 2010) finished at No. 4, No. 5, and No. 6, respectively.

Tom Brady of the Pats has fallen to No. 14, his lowest level since 2006.

Tebow will remain at the top of the list only if he develops into a quality NFL quarterback.  If he does, maybe the Jaguars will try to trade for him.

    When the Jags die in Jacksonville, it can be officially ruled deliberate suicide.

  2. READY2CRUSH says: Jul 7, 2010 12:33 PM

    Just what jersey I’d want… a 3rd string QB that will be out of the league in 4 years. You people are morons

  3. taterkil says: Jul 7, 2010 12:36 PM

    Maybe they can hang his jersey on the rebirth of touchdown jesus.

  4. JagMania65 says: Jul 7, 2010 12:36 PM

    The NFL better award the Super Bowl trophy to Denver right now, since jersey sales is what makes the Super Bowl champ, right Florio?
    Ex-Gators Reggie Nelson and Derrick Harvey sold quite a few jerseys here in Jacksonville when they were first drafted by the Jaguars. Now you can pick one up in the clearance section…

  5. HooskerDo says: Jul 7, 2010 12:36 PM

    All the jort loving rednecks wouldn’t buy tickets if he was playing in Jacksonville, let alone back in Gainesville.

  6. MACK DADDY says: Jul 7, 2010 12:37 PM

    Uhh ohhh. King BrInt isn’t going to like this at all. Look for him to switch teams again in hope of pumping up his sales.

  7. slawsc says: Jul 7, 2010 12:37 PM

    I thought football was about winning games, not selling jersey’s?

  8. fldore says: Jul 7, 2010 12:39 PM

    arent jersey sales and all merchandise split evenly among teams? just like the tv contract? so im not sure how this would help jacksonville moreso than anyone else.
    Tebow probably would have helped them initially with a few extra ticket sales but that wouldnt last very long if he was sitting on the bench. which I think will be the case because he probably wont be a good starting QB.

  9. Sourdough says: Jul 7, 2010 12:39 PM

    @RE: Is there any other type suicide than deliberate!?!

  10. tinopuno says: Jul 7, 2010 12:40 PM

    Jerry Robertson bought 2,000,0000 jerseys and is giving one to every African child Tebow personally circumcised.

  11. EverybodyGotAIDS says: Jul 7, 2010 12:42 PM

    Tom Brady of the Pats has fallen to No. 14, his lowest level since 2006.

    And the Jags get the same amount of money from the sales that they would have by drafting him

  13. Jagmankane says: Jul 7, 2010 12:44 PM

    blah blah blah. that revenue is shared 32 ways…. and when he bombs and becomes nothing more than an h-back or nothing at all, those sales will mean jack.

  14. JDMP says: Jul 7, 2010 12:46 PM

    And when the seasons over people will see a Ryan Leaf jersey would’ve been a better investment

  15. bluestree says: Jul 7, 2010 12:49 PM

    I’ve seen Tebow’s broncos jersey and there’s something missing from it…a bullseye. You can bet some of the guys who bust their butts just trying to make an NFL squad are going to take a shot at Jockstrap Jesus.

  16. poonhok says: Jul 7, 2010 12:49 PM

    But wait, he’s an athletic Quarterback…surely some of the Vick/Young/TJackson swingers REALLY want Tebow to succeed….

  17. bigrig says: Jul 7, 2010 12:49 PM

    A lot of people speaking with their wallets instead of just running their mouths on a blog board.
    A lot of people telling the NFL they are ready for a different type of athlete than what they have been seeing lately.
    I’m not a big religious guy, but he is a nice change of pace from all the wife beating, dui getting, dog killing, bar room brawling types in the headlines nowadays.
    I don’t know if Tebow will make it or not, but it sure is nice to debate whether a guy can play or not as opposed to whether he should be allowed to play or not.

    Wrong, he is going to be the starting fullback.
    In all seriousness I like Tebow, I hope he does well when he get’s his chance, but who knows, could turn into Ryan Leaf 2.0, not with all the personality problems though.

  20. Kaz says: Jul 7, 2010 12:50 PM

    That’s a shame. I actually like the Jags too. Huge mistake. Although I wouldn’t have taken him 10 overall, unless I was going ot reach. They should have just took him.

  21. JSpicoli says: Jul 7, 2010 12:51 PM

    The top selling jerseys of this period would be dominated by players newly drafted, or who switched teams. This makes perfect sense given tha these are the jerseys previously not available
    (Tebow and McNabb)
    This does not mean Tebow is taking over the NFL and more popular than Tom Brady/Favre/Manning etc. It means that there are already a lot of Brady Jerseys out there, and before you say it, I’m no pats fan, just someone who can use logic and reasoning.

  25. CYGNUS X-1 says: Jul 7, 2010 1:04 PM

    it realy must kill you to see that despite your best efforts to downgrade his abilities and question his beliefs that he still leads.you know most people realise that he won’t be an all pro qb right away and will take time to develop but, still unlike you believe that he is a genuinely good guy.I have never heard him say that he is better than anybody else and I could care less about his religion but admire that unlike most guys who say one thing and do another,he lives it likes he talks it.how about stopping the pointless swipes and knocks until he beats his woman,gets busted for dui or drugs or some other serious crime. I say serious because if he got a speeding ticket you would say that proves he’s a fake.

  26. ozzie41 says: Jul 7, 2010 1:05 PM

    If he was gay or Muslim there wouldn’t be anything derogatory said about him here. But, he’s an outspoken Christian and some of you can’t contain your hatred for him. There’s probably spittle all over your keyboards. What nerve did this kid hit simply by being a decent human being? Wow ! That is some interesting psychopathology there.

  27. va4favre says: Jul 7, 2010 1:07 PM

    I totally agree that jersey sales are not worth much, but they do help the clubs financially. I expect Tebow to be on top for a while, but what happened to the Brady Quinn jerseys? I expect Brett’s to spike again as soon as he announces he’s coming back–assuming that does happen. I expect him to be back up to number three. If the Pack would ever give an honest response, they might say how much they miss the Favre merchandise revenues.

  28. brownsfn says: Jul 7, 2010 1:12 PM

    shouldn’t this read: Baby Jesus takes over jersey sales????

  29. robert ethen says: Jul 7, 2010 1:13 PM

    One small point….Bronco #15 shirts are not “jerseys”, they are vestments.

    Even if they had drafted him, the Jaguars would still suck. Personally, I think Tebow will be a decent QB one day but the Jags and the Broncos are still going to be looking up at everyone else.

    One Season Ticket Holder plus, food, tailgating, BEER and parking $2,500-$3000.
    One Tim tebow jersey- $59.99
    You’re right Florio, jersey sales equals ticket sales. You like Glenn Beck, there’s no way you actually believe the things you write and say. You really aren’t the coldest beer in the fridge if you know what I mean.

  46. JoeSixPack says: Jul 7, 2010 1:37 PM

    Any male over the age of 15 who buys and wears an NFL jersey with the name of another man needs to check his nads.
    Grown men who wear such jerseys aren’t that far off the evolutionary scale from guys who go to Star Trek conventions, making this one “popularity” contest that no one in the NFL should want to win.

  48. evilboy128 says: Jul 7, 2010 1:44 PM

    Florio, you have reduced yourself to the whining ass gator fans here in Jacksonville that believe that if we drafted Tebow, he would have singlehandedly sold the stadium out and put a professional football team at the mercy of a college teams fanbase. What’s next? Threatening to not renew said tickets if he was not named the starter? Drafting Tebow WOULD NOT be in the best interest of the team OR the player. Privately, Tebow has stated he was glad that the Jaguars didn’t draft him as the pressure of starting him would have been too much. Add to that the fact that drafted him would have made NO sense to the Jaguars as their defensive line was in desperate need upgrade. But facts are NOT what you do Florio. You spew lies and then present them as truth. afterward you declare the “final word” on the subject or like in this article “here’s the ultimate rebuttal”. well as for your rebuttal…
    EPIC FAIL!!!!!

  49. evilboy128 says: Jul 7, 2010 1:46 PM

    Oh…and you have no friends here in jacksonville…just bandwagon schmucks that will run and leave you just like they will Tebow when he struggles.

  50. Big Stretch says: Jul 7, 2010 1:47 PM

  52. klungemonger says: Jul 7, 2010 1:52 PM

    When you aren’t winning anyways (like the Jags), you at least want to make some money. It is a business. Having room in your salary cap for good players is pointless if you simply don’t have the money to pay them. Weaver needs the cash, he blew it. So what if Tebow busts out in a few years? Until then he would have kept Jacksonville’s coffers full.

  53. dafish says: Jul 7, 2010 1:59 PM

    so the sale of a $70 jersey equates to the purchase of season tickets (minimum $300 purchase) … enough so that the Jaguars can have the blackouts lifted.
    Wow! Great logic.
    How the hell did you pass the bar?

  54. chipwade says: Jul 7, 2010 2:07 PM

    It makes complete sense that a rookie would lead the league in jersey sales. I don’t annually go buy a new Aaron Curry jersey. Other than Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow was the most talked about rookie. Even more so maybe. The next thing that would make sense is a free agent on a new team (McNabb). New team, new jersey sale.
    They should judge total jerseys sold over the career of a player, not one year.

  55. evilboy128 says: Jul 7, 2010 2:09 PM

    and I notice you forgot to mention that Tebow did another of those “autograph signings” that you used to rag him about until he gave you that mystical phone call you like to brag about. So why aren’t you harping on again about his foundation and how questionable it is that he charges so much for his autograph (160) and so much for his picture (75)?
    Your a hypocrite Florio…not surprising though..you ARE a lawyer, right?

    ***********************
    Not if you consider that he’s actually sell more tickets. Florio’s point has NOTHING to do with sales of his jersey but ticket sales. Since Denver doesn’t have to worry about tickets like Jacksonville, you can’t see the Tebow Effect with them like you would with the Jags.

  59. howellpj says: Jul 7, 2010 2:20 PM

    It always amuses me how liberals that dislike Tebow because of his faith somehow incorporate politics into a football conversation. What in the %$% does Glenn Beck have to do with anything Jag4Life? Moron!

    Do you need a coupon? Where do I get one?

  62. Mooch says: Jul 7, 2010 2:35 PM

    Tebow is over-exposed, which is why he gets trashed by people. Disliking him for being a Christian is only about 15% of the people, a small minority. And half of them do it just to get a rise out of you, so why play into their hands?
    Why would anyone buy a Tebow jersey? It’s not like he ever ran a bush league dog fighting operation or trafficked in Purple Drank!
    Honestly, I stopped cheering AGAINST Tebow when I gave some thought to the kinds of people I was cheering FOR. C’mon now.
    At least Tebow has won something of merit in his life to deserve some of the hype, unlike Lebron James. An hour long TV special!?!? What is he, in HS announcing his college choice?

  63. KC33 says: Jul 7, 2010 2:37 PM

    So some of you are actually saying on record that the Jaguars should have picked Tebow at number 10? I’m sorry but I just don’t see top 10 QB talent there. If they have to draft a name just to sell tickets, then they’re just delaying the inevitable.

    I agree but only a small minority of players grab those wrong headlines. There are already many great guys in the league. When Arron Rodgers and Donald Driver (or anyone else in the league not named Tebow) hold charity events, they unsurprisingly don’t get blog posts on PFT. You know what they say, if it bleeds it leads. . .

  72. LincolnHawk says: Jul 7, 2010 3:12 PM

    You can’t argue with the fact that the Jaguars sold more tickets the weekend after NOT drafting Tebow than they have in any other weekend in franchise history. That was the real fans showing they were pleased with the team drafting to win, not drafting to pander to bandwagoners.
    I don’t hate Tebow. I hate his fans. I hate these people that contend he’s a martyr because of his faith, that bitch about people hating him because of his faith. Like anybody, most people hate him because he’s in your face about it. Nobody hated Reggie White for his faith because he kept it out of the media and out of football where it doesn’t belong.
    Those on the highest pedestals have the farthest to fall. I can’t wait for all you bible thumping sheep to find out that he’s actually human. I’m sure you’d still stick by him if were to show up on “to catch a predator”.
    How many of you know about his country club membership in Jacksonville? As a junior, his family was given a “gratis” membership worth $35,000 to an elite country club. I’m sure that’s an expenditure his family can afford, right? Of course, you’ll never hear about that shit like you did with USC and Reggie Bush. Tebow is no better. I’m sure you’ll say he deserves it for all the good things he does, like nobody else in this world does.

    I agree, kind of. 15 is a far cry from a grown man, should be 20. And what about a throwback jersey with an old time HOFer? I dont see nothin wrong with that. Maybe one of those great players from your childhood.

  75. konaehukai says: Jul 7, 2010 3:27 PM

    Wow, a QB that will never see the field is leading in jersey sales? What a waste of money folks. I could see it here in Colorado, because all of the religious fundies are buying them. Otherwise I cannot fathom why anyone in the economy would waste money on such a stupid purchase.
    I wonder if Churches are denying communion unless you buy a Tebow Jersey.

    Don’t understand all the Tebow hate. Dude isn’t the best QB, but doesn’t matter. He’s a good person and a good role model for kids (absent the Jesus-freak stuff).
    At least he isn’t getting DUI’s, smoking pot before known drug tests, hitting women, stealing donuts from top pot, etc….
    in other news, how is Peyton Manning still leading jersey sales? Who in Indy doesn’t have a Peyton jersey at this point? :-D

  81. sand0 says: Jul 7, 2010 3:51 PM

    Teebow’s faith and leadership will make up for his lack of NFL QB skills. God will make this man dominate. Satan’s children will cower under his mighty shadow. He will change America.
    Or he might just sorta suck, but not totally.

  83. hotchick says: Jul 7, 2010 3:59 PM

    Yes the top 2 sellers were players with new Jersey’s. Think about it, in this sales period the rookies have the advantage along with top stars who move to a new team. So I don’t see the excitement that he wasn’t even on a team for 1/3rd of the period. Was anyone really buying NFL jersey’s during April?
    BTW, Tebow was first seems like big news. But was he first by selling 20 million jerseys or was he first by selling 2000 jerseys?
    The actual volume of jersey’s sold matters, (not the ranking) especially if you are going to claim it shows Jacksonville was wrong about how he could effect the franchises future in the city.

  84. TheRillest says: Jul 7, 2010 4:11 PM

    If you really dont think that Tim Tebow wouldnt have had a huge impact on Jaguar ticket sales then you are and idiot.
    …and if you think Wayne Weaver wasnt aware of that fact then you are an even bigger idiot. Wayne is looking for reasons to justify a billion dollar sale, not reasons against it!
    Wake up people of Jacksonville, your getting the Mayflower treatment….just a little slower so you can keep up.
    Um…who did they draft in the first round by the way??

    “What in the %$% does Glenn Beck have to do with anything Jag4Life? Moron!”
    +++++++++++
    Absolutely nothing, the sheep are just aping what they’ve heard from the MediaTalkingHeads… .
    ——————————————
    I wasn’t even getting into the political talk, but if you don’t understand let me break it down for you. Glenn Beck is patheitc, pointless, irrlevent fear-monger idiot and so is anyone who listen to that garbage. He’s scaring all of his loyal following preaching of a world that does not exist. But he knows people are idiots and will follow the words of a talking rat if it made them feel special. Meanwhile Beck is laughing all the way to the bank on your dime, but you call me a moron?

    TheRillest,
    You have no idea what you are talking about. The Jaguars polled their fans, brought in multiple sports marketing firms to study the Tebow effect, and ALL of it determined that it would have a minimal effect on ticket sales, but I guess some dumbass on a message board knows better than research and fact?
    So tell me something genius, if Weaver really did just want to sell the team, why the hell would they be making such an effort to sell tickets? Why wouldn’t they just let the problem continue to grow and give them the excuse to leave?
    Lastly, how much would a QB drafted 10th overall command these days? $50 million or something like that? We already have a starting QB that isn’t worth his $60 million contract, and now we’re going to draft a back up project QB and make him the second highest paid person on the team? That’s real smart, pal. I’m surprised your not a GM somewhere.

    Soon to be followed by:
    Tim Tebow takes the lead in jerseys sold…at neighborhood rummage sales.

    Absolutely Disgusting, A guy who goes around pushing his beliefs on everyone, as well as stitching little Filipino boys weiners after there (“Godly” chuckle) circumcision performed by his ministry. The problem? Tebow don’t got no medical license.
    America was supposed to be based on religious freedom when leaving Ireland. However, that dream continues to die as people like Tebow get expempt from all the rules, like taking money for a charity when playing NCAA, bet ya some of that money stayed in the family bank. But yet Bush is a monster? for taking a home for his poor family?
    This disgusts me! let it be known!

    McNabb is #2 because he went to a big market and is still an A-list NFL star. The NFL wins when this happens!!

    Lots of stupid-ass denial people clinging to their hate, I see.
    Grow up. Get some meaning in your life.

    Tom Brady of the Pats has fallen to No. 14, his lowest level since 2006.

    Oh, really? Then why hasn’t he changed numbers like Jordan? Because he’s a has-been, that’s why…

    The Jaguars didn’t need to draft Tebow in the first round to make an impact on ticket sales; all they needed to do was draft him, even if it was in the seventh round. I doubt that you’d find many of them that would have welcomed him being taken above the 3rd round but they would have welcomed him to their team and they would have bought more tickets.

    lincoln hawk you are an idiot!reggie white did not put it in your face?this coming from the guy who after signing his big fat contract said that it was not about the money but that god had told him to sign with the packers?

  96. eagledan says: Jul 7, 2010 10:38 PM

    Tebow a Florida Quarterback who won a Heisman trophy! He should at least be as successful in the NFL, as the prior Heisman winners from Florida, Danny Weurffel, and Steve Spurrier.

  97. tdowdy11 says: Jul 7, 2010 10:44 PM

    what they’re not telling you is Tebow is buying all the jerseys himself.

  98. IAVikefan says: Jul 8, 2010 10:12 AM

    Certain people have a point on here- If Tebow was gay, muslim, hindu, hippie, WHATEVER… nothing would be said. But since he is an outspoken Christian, you all rag on him… kind of like Packers fans reading a Favre + Vikings story, you just can’t control yourselves.
    HOW PATHETIC.

    Sales were erect for a moment and then went flaccid.

    texasPHINSfan: in other news, how is Peyton Manning still leading jersey sales? Who in Indy doesn’t have a Peyton jersey at this point? :-D
    You’re 100% right, I have no idea how hes still in the top 5. I bought mine about 10 years ago and I never wear it due to all the bandwagon fans sportin the #18 jerseys all over town!!
    How does Sam Bradford not out-sell T-bone? At least Sam is gonna step on the field this year! This just shows how dumb denver fans are…Rams fans wont waste their money on a bust, bronco fans just dont get it…

  102. JackBTexan says: Jul 11, 2010 1:04 PM

    This can’t be right. Wait, I get it. Tim Tebow and his mother bought all of them!
    Otherwise there are WAY more idiots out there than I ever thought possible.
