Assuming y’all still are interested in the Jets’ backup quarterback, the NFL Network has a new episode of its series, “A Football Life,’’ premiering at 8 p.m. Wednesday about you-know-who.

The show, “The Faces of Tebow,’’ comes at its subject from an unusual angle, speaking to five former quarterbacks who are said to illustrate elements of Tim Tebow.

Joe Namath talks about fame, Roger Staubach talks about faith and Steve Young, Doug Flutie and Kordell Stewart about various aspects of life as an unconventional NFL quarterback.

Says Young: “You cannot run around and play in the NFL. You have to throw the football from the pocket. You have to deliver it from the pocket on time. That’s the job. There is no other job.’’

Does the show work? Only to a point. But dare I say we might all be suffering from a bit of Tebow fatigue?

Anyway, later this season, something completely different: “A Football Life’’ turns its lenses on Tom Coughlin.
