Tim Tebow Still Makes More Sense For Jacksonville Jaguars

Remember a few weeks ago when Tim Tebow signed with the New England Patriots?

What could possibly trump Tebow going to the Patriots? Perhaps having a guy already on the team being charged for murder, possibly multiple murders. I’m talking about Aaron Hernandez for the select few who have been in caves on Mars with cotton gauze stuffed in their ears. Speaking of Hernandez, make sure to read my piece on him here. Enough about that bad boy though, let’s talk about everyone’s favorite good boy Tebow.

Tebow has had an interesting journey to say the least. He went from beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs, to being traded to the New York Jets the following season after his former team, the Denver Broncos, signed Mr. Laser Rocket Arm Peyton Manning.

Tebow’s 2012 season with the Jets was an absolute joke. They had no plan for him and were merely just interested in making headlines. In the process it showed a vote of no confidence in incumbent starter Mark Sanchez. After drafting Geno Smith and adding 25 other quarterbacks, the Jets just didn’t have room for Tebow anymore and released him.

Tebow stayed on the waiver wire for a lot longer than I expected, but was finally picked up by the Patriots. Obviously, he won’t be starting over Tom Brady, but if there’s any team that can use Tebow in a productive way that’s not at the starting QB, it’s the Patriots. That being said, Tebow still would make more sense as the starting quarterback for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Current Jaguar quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Chad Henne are, well they…they’re…hmm, how do I say this nicely? They suck. There, I said it. They suck. The team itself is terrible and that’s being nice. It makes no sense to me that the Jaguars, who were 2-14 last year and haven’t had a winning season since 2007, wouldn’t go out and get a winning quarterback. I know a lot of people say that Tebow isn’t a good QB. I say you may be right, but he’s better than Gabbert and Henne, right?

Tebow is also a native of the area and would instantly drive up the lame ticket sales that are currently going on in the panhandle. It would have been great to take Tebow and pair him up with the new $63 million renovation that’s going to happen for Ever Bank Stadium according to USA Today Sports. You can read about it here. It makes sense though, right? To put a proven winner on a team that’s been a loser for years.

I’m still holding out hope for Tebow to go to the Jags. He’s only signed for two years in New England and will still be young after that. Tebow would not only be a lift for the Jaguars, but he would provide a much needed lift to the fans and the city.
