We interrupt our ongoing coverage of the new TV deals to continue our ongoing coverage of Tim Tebow.
According to the league office, Tebow has leapfrogged Bills quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick into the No. 3 position among all AFC quarterbacks in fan Pro Bowl balloting.
Tebow has 420,539 votes. Fitzpatrick has 377,796.
That said, Tebow remains far behind Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (1,149,721) and Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (745,835).
Fan voting represents only one third of the total analysis for determining the Pro Bowl rosters. Player voting also counts as a third of the vote, along with votes from coaches.
That said, the fact that Brady never plays in the Pro Bowl will make it more likely that Tebow will be one of the three quarterbacks picked for the game.
Unless, of course, God’s plan entails Tebow playing his final game of the year not in Honolulu but in Indiana.
