Report: Tebow Almost Certain to Play for Jacksonville in 2013

http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-sh...5677--nfl.html
Quote:
According to ESPN.com's Chris Mortensen, the Jacksonville Jaguars are a "virtual certainty" to acquire current New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow in 2013, via free agency or the trade route. Tebow, who remains a bit player with the Jets after the team bumped Greg McElroy above to starter following the decision to bench Mark Sanchez this week, has reportedly requested that the Jets trade or release him.
Tebow, who is from the Jacksonville area, has been the subject of the franchise's interest for quite some time. In March, Jaguars owner Shad Khan put himself in with the Jets in the derby for Tebow's services, offering a fourth-round pick and $3 million to offset Tebow contract with the Denver Broncos. But Tebow chose the Jets, and that hasn't worked out for him at all.
After throwing 126 completions in 271 attempts for 1,729 yards, 12 touchdowns and six interceptions in 2011 for the Broncos, Tebow was relegated to the role of option/gimmick player for the Jets. He's completed six of just eight passes for a total of 39 yards in 2012.
"That would have been the worst thing for Jacksonville and the worst thing for him," Khan said at the NFL's annual league meetings in March after Tebow made his decision.
"He didn't want to come, obviously ... Any one of the 53 players we have, have to be committed to Jacksonville, making us be the best team we are. The question was: Did he want to come? And if the decision had been taken out [of his hands] and we got him, that would not be good for him, or for us."
The Jags were also in a different position at that point -- they were still trying to see what they had in quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who has been a relative failure since he was selected 10th overall in the 2011 NFL Draft. Now, with Chad Henne starting in place of the injured Gabbert, and a far more open quarterback competition forthcoming, Tebow may very well be ready to get back to his roots and see what happens.

this has interesting draft implications!

There isn't a smart talent evaluator or coach that would start TeBow ahead of a QB with actual QB skills.

Well, he is going against Chand Henne and Blaine Gabbert if he ends up in Jacksonville, so he'll most likely start there.

And if they do pick up Tebow, Mike McCoy would be the next guy I hire. Guy has done a terrific job with Denver - modifying the offense mid-stream to make it work for Tebow after working it for Orton early in the season then retooling it in 2012 with the same personel for Manning. That type of flexibility is not often seen in the NFL. Usually it's my way or nothing, but he's been amazingly open to change the offense to fit the guy running it.

And anyone who is able to get a career year out of perrenial shit burger Kyle Orton deserves a look.

Shit, I wouldn't mind Hunt taking a look at McCoy for the Chiefs HC vacancy in 2013. Guy has done a terrific job to date.

I mentioned McCoy as a guy that I would be very interested in as a HC candidate several weeks ago for this very reason.

What's he's managed to do in the last 2 seasons is pretty incredible, and highly undervalued since the acquisition of Manning.

As for TeBow, his limitations would limit an offense, as they did last year for the Broncos.

You might win a lot of games, but there is no way that style will ever sniff a SB.

Any team taking on TeBow as a starter is automatically conceding any chance to win anything significant.

Other than Jacksonville, who will probably win about 10,000 new season ticket holders.

If I was Khan, I'd be getting a backroom deal done right now and then work the Tebow to Jaguars in the media for the next two/three months to build a frenzy then announce that they've signed Tim and then pick Bjoern Werner with my first and the best remaining QB with the first pick in the second.

They should have a potential choice of guys like Nassib, Bray, Jones or Murray (if he comes out).

Well since it appears that they will have the 2cd overall pick in the draft they could add a real QB to thier roster. That would make the most sense. IMO

Tebow won't win games for Jacksonville. And normally I hate moves made for business reasons. But this is a smart move. That market needs a boost.

That's hometown pine he'd be riding.

If they had him switch off between backup QB, tight end, and fullback, he'd be useful, in that if nothing else, defenses might have trouble keeping up with the formations. He could be the lynchpin in a deceptive offense.

What the hell, it's not like Jacksonville has that much to lose.

More excitement means more fans means more money for players and coaches, means more marketability meaning better access to good players, means better fans who can give you home field advantage and make the place a place players want to play.

Again... I hate business over winning. But this is a dying franchise and this could put the team on the map in a huge way. It's a smart move for Jacksonville, even if it doesn't win them super bowls.

I think Vick would be a good fit there as well. Would be finally interesting to watch Jacksonville if they got both. Get rid of the tarps and put asses in seats. Put Tebow in at different positions...FB, TE, split out wide. He would set up a playaction or flee flicker pretty good.

Did you see what happened when the Jets tried throwing to him . He's a pretty good "goal line" QB and that's about it. He ****ing sucks and was the biggest joke ever to recieve as much hype as he did in Pile High.
