Tim Tebow can't catch a break on the field or online.

By VH1 standards, Tim Tebow is having the worst week ever.

First, fans mocked the Denver Broncos quarterback with Tebowing, a meme where people pose as the football player praying in various places. Then, he suffered a blow out loss to the Detroit Lions, who added insult to injury when a Lions player Tebowed just mere feet from him.

To cap off these tragic events, yesterday commentaters swarmed an ESPN article faster than a left tackle on a field goal kick and created a new meme: Greater Than Tebow.

The game? Compare really bad things that are better than Tebow, such as Charles Barkley’s golf swing and paying taxes in a [activity] > Tebow format.

ESPN.com moderators weren’t fans of the game mocking the immortal Tebow and tried deleting many comments, but the Internet hive mind was too powerful to squash.

The meme spawned a spin-off website OccupyTebow.com, where fans submit similar sentences and fans can vote them up or down. A Twitter account was also started, @GreatrThanTebow, and the #occupytebow hashtag also received a few mentions.

Our favorite: “Me > Tebow, submitted by Jesus.” Ouch.
