Jacksonville Jaguars Must Come to Realization that Tim Tebow is Only Hope

David Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

While rumors begin to circulate that the Jacksonville Jaguars might actually give quarterback Tim Tebow a chance, a majority of the general public has responded with cheerfulness. In fact, many people are shocked that the Jaguars have not already given Tebow a tryout, with me being one of them. The franchise has to come to the realization that the team is a lost cause and Tebow is their only hope to sustaining a future in Jacksonville.

Many assumed the Jaguars already looked at Tebow weeks ago and decided against signing him. I mean, why wouldn’t they at least take a gander? There is no way one of the worst NFL teams in recent memory passed up on signing the pride of Jacksonville before even giving him a tryout, right?

Sorry to shock anyone reading this that was not already aware but the Jaguars decided after their Week 1 blowout loss that they would continue with their options under center. Instead of bringing in Tebow, a proven signal caller with a playoff win under his belt, the organization made the decision that Blaine Gabbert or Chad Henne will continue to start.

Weeks later and several “I told you so” from the fans, the Jaguars have reportedly decided to give Tebow a tryout. Whether the information is accurate is somewhat irrelevant. I say that because even if the team has not already set up a time for Tebow to throw in front of the coaches, it is only a matter of time before they do so.

Do the Jaguars really want to go 0-16? Does the owner really want to lose a ridiculous amount of money this season based on the fact that fans will not fill the seats and no one will buy the team’s merchandise?

The obvious answer to these questions show be no. How do these problems get fixed? Bring in Tebow. A person who will energize the fans and inspire the players on the roster to play at a high level while also bringing a few wins along the way.

The fact of the matter is the Jaguars cannot become any more of an embarrassment than they already are. For management to sit in their luxury boxes and decide that signing Tebow is basically beneath them is a joke in itself. The organization cannot go lower than they already have. Only thing worse than rock bottom is the franchise being forced to relocate. At this point, signing Tebow and making him the starting quarterback is a huge move in the right direction. Frankly, it is the only move at this stage of the game.

    Nailed it.

    So so wrong. They get their franchise QB in next year’s draft. Have a clue moron they’re already 0-4. You want Tebow to get them a few wins so they’ll be sitting at 3-13 or 4-12? Cause that will really help in the long-run. You’re an absolute joke of a writer.

      And what if a quarterback is not worthy of the No. 1 draft pick? What if the quarterback they do select is a bust? The Jaguars drafted Blaine Gabbert No. 10 overall and that did not turn out so well for them. Tebow would bring a lot more than just wins to the Jaguars. He would give the franchise, and more importantly, the fans hope.

      What’s to say that the “franchise QB” they’ll supposedly draft with the #1 pick will actually turn out to be a franchise QB? Ryan Leaf, anyone? Wasn’t Gabbert supposed to be the franchise QB? I think that those who assume Teddy B. will be a shoe-in are assuming to much.

      • Marty

        Hilarious way of thinking. What if Andrew Luck was a bust? What if Peyton Manning was a bust? If you take this approach in the draft or running an organization you’ll obviously never accomplish anything.

        Michael, give the fans and franchise hope? One player can not change how terrible and thin this roster is. You build through the draft. This is the plan and no matter how bad this year gets you have to stay the course. Doing anything else would be irresponsible.

    Give Tebow a shot. WHAT have you got to lose? You are already losing games & credibility big time.
    If Tim wins, good for YOU and good for HIM.
    If Tim loses, blame all your troubles on the Christian kid.

    SORRY Jacksonville, but your owner doesn’t care about wins, in fact he wants the jags to lose because my sources say that he wants to be the first team in London. Shah already owns a soccer team in London, he just wants to first at everything, like the first middle eastern descent NFL owner. That’s why he will never hire TEBOW, whom we all know would fill seats. That’s why Shah is not changing coaches, i mean who hires a coach named Gus, Gus is a moron to think he is even NFL worthy. Jags won’t last in Florida, and furthermore, the JAGUAR CARS are from London, so when your team moves to London, they won’t even change the name and laugh at you Jacksonville fans, Shah will have the LAST LAUGH and wants to move to London and has the money to do it and that’s why doesn’t care about filling the seats or winning, that’s why Shah won’t sign Tebow.

    All Butler does is make the beyond-obvious assessment that Jacksonville is terrible. There’s not one point about how he thinks Tebow would change that, other than a vague reference to “inspiring” some people.
