The incredible saga of the most followed backup quarterback in football continues: Tim Tebow has joined the New England Patriots. But will it matter?

When Tim Tebow took over for the Denver Broncos during the 2010-2011 season, his unconventional play helped the Broncos into the playoffs. They won the first round against the Pittsburgh Steelers, but were quickly humbled with a 45-10 loss to the Patriots in the second round. Despite that success, Denver traded him to the New York Jets. (They did acquire a guy named Peyton Manning, after all.)

While in New York last season, Tebow served as backup to Mark Sanchez. He didn't see much time, only throwing for 39 yards all year. Now with the Patriots, will Tebow fall to the third string behind Ryan Mallett and Tom Brady?
