    Why do people post this? Stop listening to the national media. Jacksonville sells a lot of tickets. More than MANY other franchises....and I'm a Dolphins fan.

    Q. When was Jacksonvilles last official non-sellout?
    A. Its been a while.

    I doubt it. Tim didn't go to Rutgers.

    And saddest of all, Gator fans enjoying watching Tebow struggle. Spare us your denials.

    It appears he's done with the NFL- time to plan his next career move.

    No. Tebow tweeted he's not going to give-up on his dream to play QB in the NFL.

    Honestly, all things considered, Jacksonville over-performs. Great fans IMO.

    Tebows wins games. In Denver he turned that team around, a team that was 1-4 and barely had a pulse offensively. Tebow does something to everyone when he steps on the field and you don't see it in practice. When he is on the field, he is best when he is allowed to run a spread type offense and thats when he can be hurt you in the air, when the defense is fearful of him running.

    Tebow was given a chance and he won a playoff game, after that, there was absolutely no chances given to Tebow.

    To me, it seems like the Bucs DE got to Tebow a little. Looks like he pushes Tebow right when he's throwing. Nobody ever said he was great at throwing, but if you ask him to throw exclusively, its not going to work. Its not a coincidence that he tore up the SEC on the ground and in the air. When he is allowed to be himself, he is a winner, even in the NFL.

    I get it I watched and rooted for Tebow his whole career but if you cant make passes from the pocket you are not going to be an NFL QB for long. If you think their turn around was just Tebow there is nothing I can tell you to change your mind. Denver wanted him gone for a reason. You dont get chances in the NFL you earn them. I will root for Tebow in whatever he does but he is not an starting NFL QB.

    Sure, the defense had a lot to do with it but Tebow was money in the 4th quarter of a lot of those victories. He played in the NFL and he won games, PERIOD.

    No, you don't "get it" because if you did you'd have seen Tebow throw it from the pocket a lot in Denver.

    They won games but he did not play well enough for them to want to keep him. We all see the problems he has from the pocket

    Agreed, but there is no rule saying you have to just sit back and pass in the pocket. It seems like more teams are going with athletic QBs and we will see more spread. Tebow will have his day in the NFL, this is definitely not the last we see of him.

    Wilson, Kapernick, and Newton are much better passers than Tebow.

    Not everybody. Just the usual suspects.

    There are more athletic QB's but the ones that are successful can all win from the pocket. You have to be able to drop back and throw complete passes from the pocket.

    Just not going to happen. Wake up. There are more athletic guys who throw better.

    Best gator ever. Just not an nfl qb.
