According to Forbes, Tim Tebow is the most influential athlete in American sports. However, the former Heisman winner still finds himself unemployed after getting cut by the New York Jets this offseason.There has certainly been no shortage of opinion as to where people think he ends up. Some folks are hoping he winds up in the NFL again, while others are hoping he falls flat on his face. On Tuesday, arguably the biggest badass in the universe chimed in with his opinion on the matter, and he desperately wants to see Tebow land in Jacksonsville.That person is none other than the legendary Chuck Norris. Norris believes the native Floridian can turn the Jaguars around from a "mediocre team into a championship one," citing the fact that the spiritual Tebow works miracles on the football field. Here is a snippet of what he had to say:I've heard the critics say Tebow has poor technical skills, but the truth is that Tim is a natural leader, an amazingly gifted football player, an inspiration to his team and the possessor of intense determination and strategy to bring any team to victory — no matter what the odds. One can improve technique, but leadership is innate. That is why I believe that Tebow could be a superstar and legend in the NFL.Apparently, Norris adores Tebow because he sees a little of himself, too.Tebow is a player who rises to the occasion and delivers big in critical moments. He reminds me of myself when I used to compete in martial arts. I would spar with my black belts in class, and sometimes they would outscore me. Yet in the tournaments, I would defeat them. My students used to ask me, "Why is it that we can contend equally against you in class but can't beat you in the tournaments?" My answer was always the same: "When it counts, I rise to the occasion."Clearly Norris is a man who the Jaguars shouldn't doubt. Team owner Shad Khan and general manager David Caldwell should take his advice and act swifty. If not, they could both end up with a roundhouse kick to the face.Via The Big Lead
