Chances are slim that N.Y. Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow will see much action in his hometown of Jacksonville Sunday when his team faces the Jaguars, but that isn't stopping a local company and fans who plan to show their enthusiasm for the Heisman Trophy winner by performing a flash mob.
Underneath the YouTube video, "Flash Mob at Everbank Field," the explanation for the plan is that the pre-game event outside the stadium is being put on by a company called Soul Electronics. "They asked us to do the flash mob at this game because the New York Jets will be playing and Tim Tebow is the quarterback of that team. Tim is affiliated with Soul Electronics so that's why we are doing this on this date," reads the description.
The video shows the routine performed by four girls and then broken down by steps by one of the girls for those wanting to memorize the flash mob dance. more >>
After leading his team to victory over the defending Super Bowl champions in his first ever Monday Night Football appearance, Washington Redskins rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III jokingly suggested one fortunate fumble-turned-touchdown may have been the result of some divine intervention.
During the second quarter of last night's game, in which the Redskins (6-6) defeated the New York Giants (7-5) by a score of 17-16, Griffin was hit by Giants safety Stevie Brown and fumbled while attempting to run the ball himself. In a bizarre twist, however, the ball flew right into the hands of Redskins receiver Josh Morgan, who carried the ball into the end zone for a touchdown.
Several reporters in the post-game press conference asked Griffin about the play, and he responded by saying the incident was intentional. more >>

Tim Tebow will be inactive for the New York Jets on Sunday and because of his lack of playing time this season, his jersey sales have also gone down.
Tebow, 25-year-old listed as the backup QB for the Jets, will be inactive for Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, according to ESPN reports. Rex Ryan, Jets head coach, reportedly made his decision to list Tebow as inactive close to one week after the QB announced that he had fractured his ribs.
Tebow spoke to the press after the Jets' 49-19 loss to the New England Patriots on Thanksgiving and admitted that he had to convince his coaching staff to let him suit up for the game in case he was needed in an emergency situation. more >>
As it has been since day one of training camp for the New York Jets, going into the 11th week of the NFL season the question for his devout fans remains – when will Tim Tebow start at quarterback?
A three-game losing streak and a disappointing 3-6 overall record has not dissuaded Jets coach Rex Ryan from sticking with Mark Sanchez through to perhaps the bitter end of the season.
Even with the sports media hounding him with questions every week about how and when he plans to install Tebow, Ryan has only offered glimmers of hope to the masses by saying he will utilize the popular Christian quarterback in some way. more >>
