So now that Tim Tebow is the fourth-string quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, he’s probably going to get microphones and camera shoved in his face every time he’s on the field.

See?

Even Chip Kelly isn’t giving us an inch on this one.

 

Coach Kelly: Tim Tebow is a quarterback for us. We’re not looking at him at any other position.

To that end, rather than just tell you what Tebow did or didn’t say, or how many passes he did or didn’t complete, we’re going to bring you a fun fact about him.

Did you know… Tebow is the 17th player in Eagles history to wear No. 11. Here’s a list of the others:

Rick Arrington

Matt Bahr       

Jeff Blake       

Trent Edwards           

Jay Fiedler      

Tim Hasselbeck          

Josh Huff

Sinorice Moss

John Rauch

Mark Rypien  

Steve Smith

Bobby Thomason       

Tommy Thompson     

Scott Tinsley  

Norm Van Brocklin

John Walton  

Van Brocklin, a Hall of Famer, was by far the most accomplished. He also led the Eagles to their last championship — the NFL title in 1960 – before retiring.

And now you know what Tebow and Van Brocklin have in common.

    Another smug, smarmy and stupid sports reporter.

    Just waiting for the day that Tebow is on the Eagles opening day roster – then I get to watch these sport idiots head explode.

    Looking forward to it.
