Jacksonville Jaguars fans want Tim Tebow.
A select group of fans, using the slogan “Why not?”, are going to hold a Tim Tebow rally today in an attempt to persuade the team to sign the former Florida Gators quarterback and special teams NFL player.
Deadspin has the details:
The lo-fi “Jags-Tebow Why Not?” website is urging fans to gather in the EverBank Field parking lot this afternoon at 3:16 p.m., for a rally to last three hours and 16 minutes, to urge the Jaguars to waste a roster spot on former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow. As the site says, “when you have nothing, you have nothing to lose.”
The Jaguars front office has shown precisely zero interest in signing Tebow, and it’s not like it hasn’t had countless chances. So this promises to be a sad, sparsely attended rally with no hope of effecting change. Still, I find myself agreeing with one Jacksonville columnist: let them sign Tebow just so he can be terrible for a couple games, and we’ll never have to hear from his fans again.
What could possibly go wrong with Tebow in Jacksonville?
