Tim Tebow has been large and in charge on ESPN since the airing of the Elite 11 quarterbacks in 2005. Tebowmania ran rampant on the network and it created a craze that hasn’t been seen possibly ever in the history of football.
From his time at Florida to being a first round pick to leading the Broncos to the playoffs last season, Tebow’s story has been remarkable and great ratings wise. This season as a back-up has just shown every reason why ESPN has to let this story go.
They literally have covered the story of him being on the bench in NY as much as they did when he started in Denver.
Now ESPN’s president John Skipper admits that the network had to dial back on its coverage of Tim Tebow.
Looks like Tebowmania is officially over until there is a rebirth once again.
