You knew it was only going to be a matter of time before Jacksonville Jaguars‘ fans started to bring up the elephant in the room – Tim Tebow. I didn’t think it would happen just one game into the 2013 season, but after the way the Jags looked in the season opener, I guess I can’t blame them. So how have some of the Jacksonville faithful started this campaign? They’ve created a new website – jags-tebow.com. The main question on the page simply asks, why not?
While I’m not ready to say it’s Tebow-Time for the Jaguars after one loss this season, the main question is very valid. Why not? It’s too soon to say for sure that Jacksonville is going to tank again in 2013, but the smart money is that they will. If the team comes out and gets handled by the Oakland Raiders this weekend, I think it will be pretty clear there’s not a lot of hope.
For a team that’s not filling its stadium every week, bringing in Tebow would be a great move. Even if he can’t make them a winning team (which would be one heck of a task), he would still bring much needed attention to the struggling franchise.
I, like a lot of people, have maintained that Jacksonville is the only realistic spot for Tebow as an NFL quarterback. The Jaguars make the most sense because their QB situation can’t really get any worse and of course there’s the fact that Tebow is from the Jacksonville area and would basically act as a hometown hero.
If the Jaguars go 0-4 to start the season, why not?
