    Normally not a Bianchi fan but can't argue with a word of that particular column. :no:

    How does the Jags' ownership and management argue with it? What's the response to this statement by Bianchi: "Let's face it, nobody wants to watch the Jaguars right now, but if they sign Tebow and play him, then everybody will watch them."

    I'm a business owner, nobody is buying my product, and with one easy, affordable, perfectly legal move I can make everybody start buying my product. From nobody...to everybody. Hmm. Hmm. What should I do? :huh:

    No ....she was portrayed as one....big difference.

    I recently read parts of the book they wrote together. She is actually an amazing human being that devotes her life to helping others.

    A couple silly comments a decade ago, does not a person make.

    It was more of a paraphrasing, as Bianchi edits Dylan's grammar. Which has happened before.

    Khan's insistence that the team playbook be printed exclusively in Arabic may explain Gabbert's body of work thus far.

    Not in the NFL, where they base things on whether you have enough talent to get the job done or not. Therein lies the reason why Timothy Tebow is currently unemployed and won't be employed by the Jacksonville Jaguars.

    I really wish this discussion could be had without everyone claiming the Jags have horrible ticket sales and no following. It's been shown time and time again on these tebow/jags threads that there are a handful of teams that have far worse attendance issues than the Jags. Sure, the Jags could be better in sales, but to paint them as horrible is not only beating a dead horse, it's beating the wrong horse.

    khan will not keep losing money every year on the jaguars---if he moves the team in a few years, will it be LA or London?

    No NFL team loses money....

    Considering Shad is sinking $20 million of his own money into the stadium next year for renovations (a year after sinking 2.5 million for new locker rooms) we can safely put to rest the Jags moving anytime soon.

    You're a real buzz kill!

    I am so amazed at people who think Tebow's religion has anything whatsoever to do with his situation. That is beyond ridiculous.

    So, how is it that Kyle Orton is still employed? Do you not agree that Tebow did better with Denver than Orton did?

    I agree Tim did a better job with Denver in 2011 than Orton did.

    Simple. He's much more accurate than Tim.

    Career completion percentage:

    Orton - 58.4%
    Tebow - 47.9%

    how many active QBs in the NFL have completed less than half the passes they've thrown in their career?

    I think it was one of those things that simply cannot be explained, and I loved every minute of it. But you, I and the rest of us know that this is not what the NFL looks for in a QB.

    Heck, I don't think Tim was half the QB Chris Leak was, but he was the greatest offensive force in our history, and arguably the greatest offensive player in CFB history. It was simply a perfect storm, since duplicated by Cam Newton and Johnny Manziel...

    Yes, it's "simple" and I agree you're probably correct that many in the NFL look at it that way and that's why Tebow has no offers. But, you don't see a fallacy in that line of reasoning?

    Let's see...shall we take the guy who completes a higher percentage of his passes while the team loses or shall we take the guy who helped turn that team around, but completes a lower percentage of his passes? Hmmmmmmm.

    Isn't winning the object? :awkward:

    And, I'm not one of those who gives sole credit to QBs for wins; I actively preach against it. But, when you've got a test case of 2 guys QBing the same exact team and one keeps losing and one keeps winning, it looks pretty likely to me that the latter QB is helping the team win more than the former QB. (Not to mention, I watched the games, and Orton would routinely melt down and make bad, losing plays when the game was on the line late.)

    Yep. Im from Jax, grew up near Tampa, and somehow became a Dolphins fan....I pull for all three Florida teams (Unless they play the Phins)

    The Jags were sold out regularly last year . Average attendance: 64,984

    Thats more than: Pittsburgh, Chicago, Oakland, Miami, Tampa Bay, Buffalo, Detroit, Minnesota, Arizona and San Diego

    There may very well be evidence that Leak was a better passer, but hard to argue with Tebow as a college QB. "Duplicated by Johnny Manziel" = :lie:
    You might back it up with numbers, but Tim lead put a team on his back and won a NC. He was an important contributor in another. Manziel will not ever do that.
