This whole 2012 National Football League season started with fans all over the league seeing Tim Tebow heading from the Denver Broncos to the New York Jets. There were people who thought Tebow would become the starter in New York by the middle of the year and others who thought Tebow should just give up on the whole quarterback position. It became obvious that Tebow wasn’t the No. 1 choice in New York and now will likely be looking to head out of town after the season is over.
There will not be many teams that have much of an interest in Tebow but there is one out there that could make the decision to give Tebow and his fans their wish. I see Tebow heading back to Florida and becoming the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013. Jacksonville has had an awful 2012 season with Maurice Jones-Drew being out most of the year and the quarterback position being a mirage. There are members of the Jacksonville ownership that wanted Tebow after last season and didn’t get what they wanted but just might this time around.
Tebow is not a quarterback by any stretch of the imagination but it is possible that Tebow could change fortunes in Jacksonville and get fans into the stadium again just to see Tebow. I don’t think it will be a good move but one that the ownership is going to force on the fans. It might work but it probably won’t but at least the ownership will probably be happy. I just hope that if this happens that it actually works. It has been a long time since Jacksonville has been relevant in the NFL.
