Tim Tebow has been called a lot of things throughout his football career. Some have applauded his competitive spirit while others ridicule his inability to consistently throw an accurate pass, but when the Dolphins' Brian Hartline was asked about Tebow, the Miami receiver offered up an interesting comparison: Timmy Touchdown to Kim Kardashian.

“That’s you guys, how much you love [him],” Hartline said of the media attention Tebow receives. “Everybody loves him, but the same people go with the Kardashians. I don’t know what they did, either.

“They’re on [magazine] covers everywhere. I mean, honestly. I know they’re really good people, do a lot of charity work. I just don’t know how they got started.”

Tim Kardashian? Is that the message here? Hartline then backtracked a bit, saying Tebow actually had done more than Kim or Khloe, that he actually won in college and in Denver.

OK, OK, it may seem a little crazy, but do you think the Tebow/Kim Kardashian comparison makes sense? Sidebar: Do you think this comment will motivate Timmy when he takes the field this Sunday...to cover punts?
