Big Ben blames ESPN for fanning Tebow-mania

Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger blames ESPN for fanning the flames of Tebow-mania around Broncos QB Tim Tebow.ESPN worked with sister Disney company Marvel Comics to commission a series of comic sketches saluting Tebow as a "superhero" and showed them on-air.

Roethlisberger empathizes with Tebow as he prepares for first NFL playoff start against the Steelers this weekend. He fingered ESPN for hyping Tebow: I don't think Tim calls up ESPN and says, 'Hey, put me on every day, and make it the Steelers vs. Tebow.' It's probably tough for him to deal with that stuff. Big Ben added it's "got to be tough" for the young QB and his teammates to handle the All Tebow, All the time TV coverage, said the Denver Post.

Every time you turn it on, you see something about Tebow. I can only imagine what it's like for his teammates. Just watching today, it's the Steelers versus Tim Tebow. No, it's the Steelers versus the Broncos, so I can only imagine what it's like for him with all the eyes and the attention on him and the pressure. It can't be fun. I feel for him a little bit.


Former NFL player turned ESPN commentator Hugh Douglas agreed with Roethlisberger's comments on ESPN2's First Take Thursday. We all know ESPN can beat a dead horse until viewers scream for mercy. See Favre, Brett. But there's no denying that fans are fascinated by Tebow. You could argue, ESPN's Jay Crawford tried, that ESPN's giving its viewers what they want.

They did, it's true.

Screw ESPN
yup

big ben is right

im 100% sure tebow didnt ask for any of this
Poor Tebow, now he'll never bang any chicks in the bathroom with everyone paying attention to him.
At least half of First Take's coverage/discussion revolves around Tebow. They even had Skip Bayless do a live remote from Denver. Terrible.
It's the Steelers vs Jesus.
Big Ben the Anti Christ?
they fanned his dirty ass
Awww the rapist feels sorry for Jesus.

that s**t pisses me off, i like watching 1st take but they need to change the name to 1st tebow because theres at least 4 topics about tebow every damn day, even when they get eliminated there will be 4 plus topics every day about tebow through out the whole playoffs

it's all about matchups
The Steelers are going to be like the Saints last year in Seattle.

Tebow is going to go Jesus-Mode and float into the endzone.
