NFL is trying to make ‘Tebowing’ come back

Thursday September 3rd, 2015

Tim Tebow is inching closer to his return to the NFL, making it through Tuesday’s 75-man roster cut deadline with the Eagles, who are scheduled to play a final preseason game on Thursday before cutting down to a 53-man roster on Saturday.

With the league’s most talked-about quarterback back in the news, the NFL Network decided it might be a good time to bring back “Tebowing,” the briefly unavoidable trend from way back in 2011, when the Heisman winner was still with the Broncos.

While the league may have thought people would like to bring back the fad, fans mostly had a very different response.

Because people cannot get enough Tebow, some fans did send back pictures, although they appear to be mostly throwbacks from the original craze and not fresh pieces of Tebowing.
