Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow likes to drop down and pray at a moment’s notice, and his habit has been dubbed “Tebowing.”
People nationwide, spurred by social media, started Tebowing as a gag.
Then the New England Patriots got beat in the Super Bowl last Sunday, sparking a new phenomenon: Bradying is named after Pats qb Tom Brady, who struck a sad pose after watching his dreams for another Super Bowl ring crater.
Bradying looks awfully familiar — it’s a variation of Romoing, made popular for the past few years by Dallas Cowboys qb Tony Romo.
Cornerback Terence Newman prompted Newmaning after his habit of falling down while trying to defend wide receivers or tackle somebody.
Of course, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett created his own phenomenon after oddly deciding to call a timeout just before a game-winning field goal by Dan Bailey. The Cowboys had to re-kick, Bailey missed, and the team lost a vital game in December against the Arizona Cardinals.
Finally, there’s Jerry Jones. His questionable personnel moves, bad drafts, inability to delegate power to football-smart coaches, and constant meddling are often blamed for the Cowboys failures for the past two decades.
