An Espn.com article about the Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow has spawned an unexpected backlash from readers that has gone viral. The article simply talked about Tebow's inconsistency as a passer and who the Broncos could replace him with. But then readers started posting comments under the article listing what things are greater than Tebow, by writing "___ > Tebow." They started out listing failed NFL quarterbacks, but the posts have since expanded. Now they say practically everything is " > Tebow," from Windows Vista to Rebecca Black to Netflix. At its peak, there were about 5 "___ > Tebow" comments per second posted under the article. The trend has even migrated to Twitter. Thousands of tweets have been sent with the hashtag #OccupyTebow. This isn't the first time Tebow has become an Internet sensation. Just last week, "tebowing" took the Web by storm. The act involves getting down on one knee and praying, even if everyone around you is doing something completely different. It's become so popular that even Tebow's opponents "tebowed" during last week's game (after they sacked him).
