    Does it matter? They are the Jags. Just for the record I am a big Saints fan and I would have said the same thing about them in the Ditka 90's.

    If Tebow works out for them, great and if he doesn't they won't be any worse than they are now. When you are as bad as they are you need to throw everything at the wall until something finally sticks.

    Skip Bayless article in case it's of interest:

    I hope I'm not just wearing my orange and blue glasses when I say that Tim Tebow brings with him a unique skill set - and what happened to him this season - was a disgrace to the Jets management and coaching staff - specifically on Ryan and Sparano.

    Even if you are not necessarily a supporter of Tebow...as a football fan - you hate to see any player with a competitive heart like Tim has - have to sit on the sidelines game after game after lousy game.

    Shame on the Jets organization. I only hope GMAC gets to where he deserves to be in this mess as well.

    I'm far from a fan of Ryan and Sparano but has it ever occurred to you that they were far from impressed by what they saw of Tebow in training camp, yet had no choice but to make him the back-up as to avoid an even bigger circus?

    No - that possibility never occurred to me.

    My analysis is only based on what I know to be true - what I have personally witnessed.

    He's going to stink and if we did give him a shot, he'll set the franchise back another 5-6 years trying to repair the damage. Better to let him flounder in FA limbo than to waste a roster spot on someone who couldn't beat out anyone we have on the roster right now or any rookie we'd draft in April.
    i'm not trying to quibble with you, but it seems like if there's one team that people forget is even in the league, it's jax. so, in that sense, i'm not sure it's possible to set the franchise back from where it is.

    i'm not saying i think tebow will be successful on the field, but it's probably good for marketing and merchandise sales.

    like is said, i get the impression that jax could disappear and most nfl fans would hardly notice.

    Wasted is too kind. He was useless. What a waste of two draft picks. I has hell bent against the whole thing from day 1. What in the world were the Jets thinking? Here's to GMAC having a great two games and sending Sanchez and Tebow out of NJ!

    The Jets got stuck with Tebow and didn't know what to do. They realize that Greg is better, but hey we spent all of this money and ......... The Jets management is sad and enept to say the least.
    "They're not better than us," Notre Dame AD Jack Swarbrick said of the Tide. "They're better than everyone."

    That wouldn't shock me because I'm sure Khan's not dumb enough to do what pretty much amounts to tampering which carries a pretty hefty penalty.

    I don't care what the other fans in the league think.

    Everything so far has pointed to this has being a myth. Jersey sales are split between every team in the league and he hasn't even created a blip on ticket sales. This year(and the previous year) has shown that the Jags will come and support the team and don't need a fullback who's deluded himself into thinking that he's starting QB caliber in the NFL to get fans to show up.

    like is said, i get the impression that jax could disappear and most nfl fans would hardly notice.
    And like I said, I don't care what they think. I want my team to win and recognition will come if they win and win consistently. Bringing in a gimmicky failure like Bustbow is just digging the hole deeper and shows that Khan doesn't care about building an actual winner.

    Tebow to Jax is a sexy and real feelgood story. For the most part I like and respect Tebow and was pulling for him last year in Denver to make it work. But I don't see him as making it as a pro QB now. The Jets were absolute idiots not knowing what to do with him. And if Jax wastes time on him as a reclamation project, it does just set them back as far as finally getting a solution to their miserable QB problems. If Tebow's just being there helps bring in enough fans and $ for awhile to make it all worth it then fine. But if they can't find a legitimate use for him on the field then I don't see how it could be worth it in the long run.

    As you mentioned, Tebow to Jacksonville would definitely not be a feel good story for the Jaguars as a team.

    tebow to Jax- Let the gator worship begin-

    You can blame Josh McDaniels for all this. Tebow should have been a 5th round pick at best. Drafting Tebow in TE 1st round forced their hands into playing him. Can't sit him because you are wasting an early pick. This crap has followed him everywhere.
