Tim sure made things interesting here in Denver and Jax held tough with the Patriots today.

You honestly think Tebow will help Jacksonville win more games, then they would with a legitimate productive Qb?

I think the league may caught on to the option style gimmick offense Denver ran we he was there. Look at what the Patriots did to them.

Do they have a legitimate, productive QB???

I just said he made things "interesting" last year for Denver.

And Jax is maybe the only place he would get playing time.

Aren't they 2-13 now? I think he could win more than 2.

That's my point instead of wasting time going for Tebow, because he's "home grown" and did some good things for his college team.
Maybe they should be focusing purely on getting a legit Qb.

I wish the best for Tebow-I hope JAX uses him more than the Jets did...I think Tebow could be an NFL QB with work.

So does this mean Tebow will change his dogs name again?

Jacksonville needs Tebow. Home town hero. Will sell those empty seats. Can't be any worse.

Tebow needs Jacksonville. He will actually start at QB. No leash.

If Tebow stays/goes somewhere, he is a bench player unless he changes to a FB.

That drastically understates his college career. Like him or not he is possibly the greatest college football player of all time. His NFL career and prospects do not change this.

Maybe they should be focusing purely on getting a legit Qb.

Unless they want to be the "Los Angelos Jaguars" they need to sell tickets more than they need a legitimate QB. They have several years of rebuilding and the cash flow from Tebow could allow some rebuilding. Tebow is not a long term SuperBowl QB, but he would bring some excitement and more than
two wins to Jax.

The "gimmick" of Tebow will be short lived if he does not produce results. People will not go to the games on a long term basis for a crappy product.

He says he will work hard in the off season. He needs to work on general quarterbacking technique - footwork, eyes down the field when scrambling, etc. He can't continue to do 3-19, for 27 yds. in three quarters of play.

I want him to do well, and I know God can make chicken salad out of chicken **** - but you have to have basic skills. I can't be an artist making six figures a year by drawing stick figures.

If he wants to succeed, he needs to pray to God about what he can't control, and work hard at what he can control.

College =!= The NFL. Troy Davis had a 2,000 yard rushing season at Iowa State and flamed out in the NFL. As far as being the greatest college player ever, that's debatable. I give Archie Griffin that honor.
