Found March 12, 2012 on The Sport Mentalist:
Back in the 2010 NFL draft, the Jacksonville Jaguars gambledthat they would be able to select quarterback Tim Tebow with either their thirdround pick or have the opportunity to move up and draft him in the secondround.
Unfortunately, Denver Broncos ex-coach Josh McDaniels hadother plans. McDaniels shocked everyone and selected Tebow with the 25thoverall pick. No one else had Tebow projected to go in the first round.
Now with the news that free agent quarterback Peyton Manningmay be on the verge of signing with the Denver Broncos, the internet is abuzzconcerning the prospect of Tebow being traded.
When I first stated back in November that this would happen Iwas berated with all kinds of rather unpleasant comments from Tebow-fanatics. Iexpected as much since that was the time when Tebowing was at a fever pitch andno one wanted to hear about the prospect of Tebow playing anywhere but Denver.
What’s interesting though is now that Manning is flirtingwith the idea of playing for the Broncos there is nary a peep on any of theblog posts I have read recently about Tebow’s impending departure. Sorry, justwanted to get that off my chest real quick. Moving on….
So with Tebow most likely on his way out of Mile High, dothe Jaguars take another shot at acquiring him?
The Jaguars are in rebuilding mode and are currently tryingto decide if they want to stick with Blaine Gabbert who they drafted lastseason or if they want to go in another direction. Gabbert had a pretty pedestrianseason by NFL standards so the jury is still out on whether or not he will be agood quarterback.
We all know about Tebow’s struggles throwing the ball lastyear but he may flourish under the Jaguars new head coach Mike Mularkey andoffensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski.
Mularkey was responsible for making Kordell Stewart soeffective when he was offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers. WhileTebow is not as athletic as Stewart was he is a similar threat with his abilityto throw and run the ball.
Just know that if the Jaguars do bring him in it will be acircus. Tebow will immediately put fans in the seats which may be a good thingfor Jaguars owner Shahid Khan but it may be a bad thing for the team long term.Gabbert will not be able to cement himself as a starter withthe fans chanting for Tebow to play and Tebow won’t have the stellar defensebehind him that he had in Denver making it harder to produce that fourthquarter Tebow-magic he is known for.
Hopefully Jaguars’ management will consider these thingsbefore they make a play for Tebow. It may not matter since they will probablyface a backlash from their fans if they don’t pursue him.
Rest assure that as soon as Tebow officially hits the tradingblock Jaguars fans will be pushing management to trade for him. It’s doubtfulthat Jaguars’ fans will care whether or not bringing him in is good for thefranchise. They’ll be more than happy to see their favorite son come home.
