Dolphins Player: Tim Tebow Is Basically a Kardashian

Categories: Sports

Brian Hartline has no patience for the talentless yet super famous. The Dolphins wide receiver is scratching his head over "Tebowmania" and basically equated the whole thing to the Kardashian kraze.

"Everybody loves him, but the same people go with the Kardashians," Hartline told The Miami Herald. "I don't know what they did either. They're on every cover, everywhere."

Oops. Hope Reggie Bush wasn't around to hear the comment.

Hartline acknowledged that, yes, Tebow came to prominence because of his college career, and not, like the Kardashians, because of a sex tape and a brief friendship with Paris Hilton, but the WR doesn't understand why the hype hasn't died down.

"It's a case of, you've got a good PR guy," teammate Kevin Burnett added. "I need to call him up, find out who he is."

Well, obviously Tebow does have the best PR guy in the universe. His name is God. He's a little bit better than Kris Jenner.

Though, Burnett doesn't expect Tebow to be much of a factor in this weekend's game between the Jets and Fins.

"Tebow's going to come in for about five [plays]."

Is Brian Hartliine jealous of Tim Tebow?  This untalented WR has been in the NFL four years and has scored a total of 5 touchdowns and outside of Miami who the hell knows him. Perhaps he is upset that Tebow beat his brother Mike four straight years while playing for the Kentucky Wildcats or that Tebow's Florida team beat Ohio State for the BCS title in 2006 or that last year Tebow beat his Miami Dolphins... the Hartline family is 0-6 vs Tebow, there is the answer.

The problem with Tebow is that and again Im not sure this is entirely his fault but, he's being marketed everyday by espn analyst Skip Bayless and countless others. They talk about talents that are clearly not there. Look at it like this, before Tebow no team in their right mind would call a press conference to introduce their backup qb. Tebow is not a good QB but the media keeps rubbing him in our faces and he seems to enjoy the publicity.

Tebow is inspiring and he helps so many through his foundation. Wish I could say the same about any of the Kardashians.

Hate Tebow or not, he's what 8-5 and  was the QB of record to get them back into the playoffs where he was 1-1 in the playoffs. That 1-0 was head to head with Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers. The loss was to the eventual AFC SB representative NE Patriots. Who has Hartline gotten credited for a win against again ?

I say he's a super smart guy and his PR is amazing! Not the best football player and banking.
