Pretty sure ESPN is just trolling us at this point.
I don’t watch ESPN’s First Take, and surprisingly that has nothing to do with the incessant bloviations of Stephen A. Smith and Skip Bayless. ESPN’s love affair with Tim Tebow has become legendary, and just when you thought the idolization of the Jets backup QB (for now) had died down, First Take goes and pulls this show topic out of their collective asses, because to ESPN, a day without Tebow is like a day without air.
Of course First Take was ridiculed on Twitter for daring to ask “Could Tim Tebow have led the 49ers to the Super Bowl?”, and rightfully so. Or as one commenter at Awful Announcing so aptly put it, “How many times need it be said: ESPN is to sports what MTV is to music.”
Here are some tweets mocking First Take‘s terrible taste in show topics and middling quarterbacks…

If a tree falls in the forest, and it falls on Tim Tebow, does Skip Bayless make a sound? #FirstTakeTopics

I think you get the point…hopefully ESPN does as well.
