They are drunk on Tebow. At first I thought maybe they were just trying to get some current players on the list, you know get some of that new generation fired up about possibly watching some of the best of all time.... but I am sorry, you can't look at last year and rate Tebow over Newton.

And I thought I saw something up on the big screen at the bar... the best of 2012? I can't remember if it was NFL Network or ESPN (drink drank drunk, you get it), but did I see something like Aaron Rodgers at #7!? Are people broken?

He's a second string QB to a first-stringer that's not all that great. So, no.

At first I thought, "okay, maybe because Tebow has a playoff win?", but they blew that by putting Marcus Allen (Super Bowl MVP) at #9.

Then I was like, "Maybe the panel was comprised entirely of Fox News employees," but no dice there either because they rated Barry Sanders above Roger Staubach.

Finally, I was like, "Oh, I get it! They just wanted to make it onto Fark."

Hahaha.... never try to get inside their heads, Harv. You'll break something.

My mom, who has never displayed the slightest interest in the NFL asked me about Tebow the other day.
I would bet a lot of money that the only other NFL player who's name she knows is O.J. Simpson and I wouldn't assume she knew O.J. played football once upon a time.

People like her are what Timmy! brings to the table.

I can't wait to see the circus when Sanchez stinks it up again. I'm currently investing in popcorn futures.

This, and Donovan McNabb saying he belongs in the HOF have provided plenty of lulz for the week.

/Saints provided too

Maybe they misplaced the films.

They should ask Belichick if they can borrow his.

Gotta love it when the keepers of NFL history lose perspective.

Say what you will about the current state of NFL Films; David Robidoux, Tom Hedden, Sam Spence, and all the rest are really what made and make the image of football. The music is legend.

He deserves an exhibit in the HoF for "4th and 26". A bust? absolutely not.

FTA: "to limit any confusion, it ranks the NFL accomplishments of former Heisman Trophy winners"

well, that sets the bar rather low, so Tebow not that big a shocker

/I wonder how many Heisman Trophy-winning QBs have won an NFL playoff game?

Since 1963 if I'm remembering everything correctly, four. Staubach, Plunk, Vinny T and Tebus.

Jim Plunkett won two Super Bowls and didn't make the top 10.

I believe Testaverde and Plunkett are the last two Heisman-winning QBs to win a playoff game. Until Timmy.

Technically, the Heisman winner with the most playoff wins is Charlie Ward with 52.

NFL Films explains all. Ah so, you see, it really wasn't about who was the best pro football player who won a Heisman. NFL Films exacting criteria involves:

■ Who had the best NFL career?
■ Who had signature plays and great moments?
■ Who had box-office appeal? Who sells tickets? Who sells jerseys?
■ Who has cultural resonance? Who passes the Mom test?

The Mom test? WTF does a player's appeal to moms have to do with anything?

I'd like to introduce the last two bullet points as evidence we're REALLY getting thin on material to talk about in the offseason.

I'm gonna try to make a blog about Plunkett not in the HOF because of the Jews.

If I were to go by the Mom Test then Levi Brown should be a starter.

/seriously, according to my mom he's a great guy
//he's playing in the CFL, like Tebow should be

At least they're honest enough to admit what no one else has ever been willing to do about pop culture lists. It's textbook attention whoring (the textbook in this case being Drew's book).

Whereas nonbelievers fear the power and love of Jesus Christ, Tim Tebow embraces it... and wins souls.
