Tough to see him in another uniform, he gave us such good memories.  

By week three, the Tebow fanatics are demanding he start at QB over Lawrence.

Good for him. 👍 So much vitriol aimed at Tebow, especially here, will never really understand it tbqh. Guy just doesn't give up, keeps chasing his dreams, is willing to fail if he fails, but

Can't hate it.  Seems weird to turn to a guy after his baseball attempt kept him away from football for so long.  But his relationship with and success under Urban Meyer can't be ignored.  This signing wouldn't have been justifiable for any other team.  

At the bare minimum, he could turn into a poor man's Taysom Hill, and there's value in that.

Weird signing, but none the less he’s back 

They'll sell out the season if  they haven't already... CASH IS KING 😉

Are ticket sales in Jacksonville going that poorly? 

They've always had problems filling that stadium. Really brilliant move bringing in Meyer and Tebow for them.

I would assume they signed him as a tight end no one in their right mind is playing him at QB.

Yes, you're right.  I was thinking TE / backup QB.  Didn't realize they still had Minshew AND they have CJ Beathard on the roster.  Makes much more sense as a TE/gadget type than a QB.  Especially since I think I read that Tebow's whole return to the NFL was about NOT playing at QB when he arrives.

The minimum is he's a forth string H-Back  that doesn't make the team and pisses people off that he even got a shot.  This signing isn't even justifiable for the Jags.  The absolutely best case scenario is he's a dollar store Taysom Hill.

Damn, I thought that said Jets. 

Same.  I changed the title because it was causing me stress every...single...time.

I remember all the :Gator fans" turned Jets fans when we signed Tebow.  That stadium will get enough ticket sales to justify the hire.

Tom Shane and Bit should be applauding this move by JAX.  Urban is protecting Lawrence from having to start if he's not ready.  Always a good idea to bring in a Vet to protect the rookie.

Trevor is doomed. Jacksonville is a joke... the Jets were a joke doing it way back when and that was when he was still playing football and took a team to the playoffs.

The Jags have been desperately trying to cash in ever since getting the #1 pick and it's going to be a disaster when it's actually time to play football

JD sleeping at the wheel.

Agreed to an extent because he's going to succeed out of sheer will.  But I also think this will only work fully under Urban Meyer, because only he will be able to get the absolute most out of Tebow.  And I think all other teams realized this on some level. 

Still wrong of JD, and all 30 other teams, to have passed on him.  JD and nearly all other NFL GM's right now are nodding and going "Yup, exactly where he needed to be" while also muttering "Damn, I'm gonna regret that."

The guy's a natural.

Let's hope he's learned to catch a ball since his last route a decade ago. 

 

Meyer + Tebow is the perfect opportunity for JAX to convert UF fans into JAX fans and sell an enormous amount of jerseys. I won't be surprised if they showcase a couple gadget plays in the preseason where Tebow gets a handoff to throw or run to pump up those UF fans.

Tebow is from Jacksonville.  He may be the best player ever to play for the Florida Gators, and a top player in all of college football.  

It seems like a fun publicity stunt.

Now, do I think the Jaguars are going to get it together?  That is not a certainty.  

But I don't see what the Jaguars have to lose.  Tebow is a good guy and hard worker, and even if his skills are not there he will set an example for the other players on the Jaguars.

Guy just doesn't give up, keeps chasing his dreams, is willing to fail if he fails, but keeps trying.  And by every report he's a good, honest, hard working, honorable dude.  Something admirable about that in this day and age.

He failed at QB, failed at MLB, now he gets a chance to do what he SHOULD have done coming out of college, play TE, maybe catch a few passes.  His athleticism was never the issue, just his ability to throw an actual NFL-quality pass.

I'm rooting for him, if for no other reason than to piss off his haters here, lol.

He is very hateable. One of my least favorite NFL players ever. You can like him all you want its all just opinions
