The Daily Show's Jon Stewart is the latest to weigh in on the "Michael Sam has announced he's gay, what does that mean for the NFL?" situation. Thankfully, Stewart attacks the "distractions" narrative, one that is as lazy as it is predictable.

Added bonus: Tim Tebow even got a name check.

"We could have the first openly gay professional football player," Stewart said. "There hasn't been a civil rights victory so significant since the NFL welcomed it's openly really bad player."

Don't worry; Stewart also roasted Donte' Stallworth, Ray Lewis, Ben Roethlisberger and Michael Vick.
