It’s a sign of the apocalypse, the Jacksonville Jaguars will reportedly hold a tryout for Tim Tebow — the “quarterback” that has turned into everyone’s favorite underdog. While he isn’t the most talented passer in the world, he will probably be the best option to start at quarterback for the Jaguars if signed.
Jacksonville is a pathetic-looking 0-4 to begin the season. Although they put up 17 points against the brutal Seattle Seahawks defense behind the arm of Chad Henne, they are not the type of team that can contend for a division title — maybe not even a single win. The Jags have been compared to the worst NFL team of all time — the 2008 Detroit Lions — and people are saying they are worse than that 0-16 squad.
Will the Jaguars win a game this year? Not with a 28-year-old underperforming Henne behind center. What about a younger Blaine Gabbert? Well, he was a top draft pick two years ago, but the first-round selection has been nothing but mediocre in his two seasons as starter. He has a career completion percentage of 53.4 and more interceptions, 22, than touchdowns, 21.
You might be saying, “Tim Tebow’s completion percentage was terrible, too”. Well, you might be right, but the guy knows how to win. Ticket sales are in the toilet and no one wants to watch the Jaguars play terrible football.
Signing Tebow will not only put people in the seats, but it will push Jaguars players to start believing in themselves with a leader like Tebow starting at quarterback. What does this team have to lose? Absolutely nothing.
If you’re the Jaguars, you need to sign and start Tim Tebow. It’s an organization-saving move.
