By Matthew Jussim
The Jacksonville Jaguars were one of the worst teams in the NFL last season after going 2-14 and after hiring a new coach and a general manager in Gus Bradley and David Caldwell, the franchise is ready to move into a new era under owner Shad Khan that has more success.

    is the rumor from that story, or somewhere else because I didn’t really read that in the article. also, how did the gm and coach so deliberately conclude they were better off without Tebow before they even got to evaluatehenne gabbert? they must have never heard about looking before leaping.

    • kim says:

      it would give tim tebow a chance for tim to show how much he has improved to all the namesayers,owners ,gms and the coaches that he can play quarterback in the nfl.then when they see how good he is and they will be begging for him to comeback to the nfl this is the only for him to get back and play in the nfl.how muchmoney will they make for playing in the a11 league

  2. graduate says:

    Tebow might shock the world and lead the charge to the A11 Football League.

    Tebow’s a great man and A11FL fans would flock with Tebow.

    #15 Tebow Tuesday for the A11FL, May 21st!

  3. The Mascot Army says:

    Wouldn’t it be poetically just if another league became competitive as a result of the small mindedness of the NFL? it’d be like Netflix and blockbuster if I remember the story right. Amazingly, it is not ridiculous to think that Tebow alone could put the a11 on the map add a really fun league to watch. they could shoot all college favorites deemed unworthy to play on the nfl by the retreads.

  4. Sage says:

    It would be neat if A11 were to take off successfully. Anyone know if they have the financial backing to make this realistic?

    I suspect there are plenty of good athletes, but getting them paid, getting venues, and getting teams in a significant number of cities is a big job.

    One of the Home Depot founders says it would be impossible to have launched that enterprise in today’s environment of employment bureaucratization.

  5. TIM TEBOW WOULD BE A WINNER
    ANY WHERE HE GOES, .

  6. tisa says:

    I do not see Tebow doing this any time soon. He wants to be an NFL QB and I think going to the A11 would be the end of that. They want to use him to launch their league for instant media attention maybe even game broadcasts just because Tebow is there, more abuse of Tebow’s name and fan base. Don’t give up, people. I have seen people get picked up a lot later than this. Just be patient. I really don’t see Timmy giving up this soon in the off season.

    • Larry says:

      I agree.

    • jason says:

      You are correct tisa. Many free agents take a while to get picked up. The issue tim has is how teas currently view his passing skills. Before we go into stats its not what they look at or “he’s a winner” its just how he will show his skills to fit the system of the team that will look at him. Everything he’s done won’t matter at all, only what he shows them.
      Hopefully he can show teams that his passing skills have reached the level they want and they believe that he won’t revert come game time.

        Tim Tebow’s QB coach is tired of his other QB coach “getting credit”
        By Craig Powers on Apr 18 2013, 6:12p
        They all agree that the Jets backup is ready to be a starter again, but they can’t agree on who deserves the credit.

        Quarterback guru Steve Clarkson has been in the media recently claiming that Tim Tebow is ready to be an NFL starter. Clarkson’s assertion has another pair of quarterback tutors who worked with the signal-caller this past offseason calling foul.

        DEVIN GILE is a former NFL, CFL, and Arena League quarterback who worked alongside his partner MIKE GIAVONDO with Tebow FOR THREE MONTHS IN SCOTTSDALE, ARIZ., after the end of the league year. He says Clarkson only came down for one day, but now he is getting all the credit.

        Clarkson said that he was merely an adviser for Tebow, not a coach. However, that is not how some have read the situation. Giavondo and Gile want their due.

        “We are getting tired of Clarkson taking credit for guys, going on radio stations,” Gile told SB Nation on Thursday afternoon. “I don’t want to get in a war with him. We put in a lot of time and effort for nothing to really help this guy. (Tebow) became a good friend of ours, and he is a good guy.”

        Gile doesn’t question Clarkson’s ability to coach. Instead, Gile believes he has a better perspective based on his own experience.

        “I’ve played there (the NFL). Steve Clarkson has never played in the NFL. I’m not trying to say anything bad about him, but he is not Tebow’s coach.”

        Giavondo and Gile worked with Tebow for “TWO TO FOUR” HOURS A DAY AT NO COST TO THE PLAYER. Gile added Tebow is one of “the most dedicated, hardworking guys” he has come across and showed major improvement over the course of the past three months. Former NFL quarterbacks STEVE YOUNG AND JIM ZORN CAME DOWN TO VISIT TEBOW AS HE WORKED WITH THE ARIZONA PAIR. GILE SAID YOUNG’S REACTION SAYS IT ALL.

        “STEVE YOUNG’S MOUTH WAS HITTING THE FLOOR,” GILE SAID. “‘WOW, YOU GOT IT!’ IS WHAT HE SAID EXACTLY.”

        How did Gile and Giavondo get connected to one of the NFL’s most polarizing stars? The two have worked with top quarterbacks at every level, including Duke’s Sean Renfree and UCLA’s Brett Hundley. Gile is close to UCLA offensive coordinator Noel Mazzone, who set the two parties up for the offseason workouts. THE TWO SIDES AREN’T DONE, EITHER. THEY ARE SCHEDULED TO CONTINUE THEIR WORK TOGETHER AFTER TEBOW RETURNS FROM JETS CAMP IN JUNE.

        GILE IS NOT SHY IN TALKING ABOUT TEBOW’S IMPROVEMENT. LIKE CLARKSON, HE BELIEVES THAT TEBOW IS READY TO PLAY IN THE NFL.

        “IT WAS A LOT WORK AND EFFORT AND TRUST TO GET HIM TO CHANGE HIS MECHANICS,” GILE ADDED. HE’S CONFIDENT THAT TEBOW WILL DO WELL WHEN GIVEN A CHANCE.

        Testaverde: Tim has improved mechanics
        ________________________________________
        By Rich Cimini

        VINNY TESTAVERDE, A PART-TIME QUARTERBACK INSTRUCTOR AT THE IMG ACADEMY IN BRADENTON, FLA., HELD CLANDESTINE WORKOUTS EARLIER THIS MONTH WITH ANOTHER FORMER JETS QUARTERBACK — TIM TEBOW.

        The two former Heisman Trophy winners worked out for a week at a Tampa-area high school, where Testaverde focused on improving Tebow’s footwork. He felt Tebow had made significant strides, so he was bummed Monday to learn the Jets had released the famous backup.

        “I WAS KIND OF DISAPPOINTED BECAUSE I WAS HOPING HE’D GET A CHANCE TO SHOW THE COACHES WHAT WE WORKED ON,” TESTAVERDE TOLD ESPNNEWYORK.COM. “I THINK THEY WOULD’VE BEEN IMPRESSED IF THEY HAD COMPARED THIS YEAR TO LAST YEAR.”
        Testaverde and former NFL QB Chris Weinke, one of the top instructors at IMG, evaluated Tebow last month. Testaverde and Weinke “speak the same quarterback language,” as Testaverde put it, because they both played under Dan Henning, a former Jets and Panthers coordinator.

        “Chris and I looked at Tim careful and we were both amazed,” Testaverde said. “Everybody has been focusing on his throwing motion, trying to fix that, but nobody had picked up his footwork. His footwork was all screwed up. Chris and I looked at each other after about four or five throws, and we saw the same thing. We got his footwork fixed. His throwing motion is now a non-issue.

        “HE THROWS WITH WHAT WE CALL ‘EFFORTLESS POWER.’ HE DOESN’T HAVE THAT ELONGATED MOTION ANYMORE AND HIS HEAD ISN’T MOVING 2 1/2 FEET WHEN HE THROWS IT.”

        ASKED TO EXPLAIN TEBOW’S FOOTWORK FLAWS IN LAYMAN’S TERMS, TESTAVERDE SAID “HE WAS STEPPING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION WHEN HE WAS THROWING THE FOOTBALL.”

        Two weeks after the initial session at IMG, Testaverde and Tebow met every day for a week at Jesuit High School, where Testaverde is an assistant coach. They held the sessions during school hours to avoid a scene. They worked alone on the field, enjoying the privacy. One day, they were recognized by a student looking out a lunch-room window. The student tweeted it and it was picked up by a local sports network, creating headlines.

        Testaverde said he enjoyed his time with Tebow. They actually worked together briefly a couple of years ago. This time, Tebow’s brother, Robby, reached out to him, asking if he could tutor Tim again.

        Even though everyone in the football world knew Tebow’s days with the Jets were numbered, he was “excited” to report to the offseason program two weeks ago, according to Testaverde.

        “He’s a positive and confident individual, and he was feeling good about learning the new stuff,” Testaverde said. “HE WAS HOPING FOR THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOWCASE HIS ABILITIES. SO WAS I. HOPEFULLY, HE GETS THAT CHANCE SOMEWHERE ELSE.”

        • Sage says:

          Thanks for the good content, Lynn. I’ve come to be annoyed with Rich Cimini and the Jets, so I don’t open their links anymore. But this was full of good stuff.

          Maybe Vinny and T and Chris Weinke are good teachers. Teaching is such an art. There might be more than one way to do it, but those who have the skill of teaching are the salt of the earth.

          I’ve never minded those who say Tim needs teaching on certain things, but rather those who act as if he is too stupid to be taught. Elway talked for a spell about “working” with Tim, but I think Elway is much too thick-headed to be a genuine teacher. Looks like he never even tried.

          • Sage says:

            Okay, and maybe it was Gile and Giavondo who were the teachers. Or maybe not. Maybe Tim was always further along than his detractors thought.

            But what Vinny T says rings true. Tebow does throw with ease, so the “effortless power” description seems valid. McDaniels and Gase helped Tim find a tighter and more economical throwing motion. It’s the legs that have tended to look a little inconsistent and awkward. Tom Brady’s strong stride into the throw is what’s ideal, no doubt.

          • Lynn says:

            The way I understand the timeline, Noel Mazzone set Tim up with Gile and Giavondo and he trained with them daily in AZ January through March and then spent some time in FL. They encouraged him to find someone to throw with every day and he hooked up with Vinny. But Tim was been working with Chris Weinke’s and Vinny Testaverde’s group since being cut by the Jets. So I am not sure what that means, he was previously scheduled to train in AZ in June, so it will be interesting to see what he does then.

            To me, the significant thing was Steve Young’s remarks combined with what he said about Tim previously. It is my understanding that Steve spent some time with Tim last spring and then again this spring. If he is impressed with Tim’s progress that can only be good; I think he is objective and has no personal interest, like a coach does, in saying Tim has made significant progress if he has not.

          • Sage says:

            I always enjoy your information, Lynn. Thanks.

          • Lynn says:

            I am not an Elway apologist, but I believe the new player union contract prohibited him from working with Tim in the off-season.

    • lalalala says:

      100% agree with Tisa. There’s no evidence Tebow is even considering A11 but their people are using Tebow fans to generate buzz and they hope will make headlines and get their name out. What they’re doing is no different from what others have done who’ve attached themselves to Tebow’s name for self publicity. Don’t fall for it guys.

      • Sage says:

        I see the point you and Tisa are making. However, if A11 is “using” Tebow at least it is with a show of respect. Respect is something that has been sorely missing from some quarters. Thus, I view the A11 league (if it can be called a league at this point) as a friend of Tebow, not a foe.

        • Lynn says:

          I am not certain I agree; since when is exploitation for self-gain being a friend? The A11 league can only hurt Tim’s credibility as an NFL QB.

          • Sage says:

            With the Omaha “Beef,” I would agree 100 percent, especially since they seemed to advertise their $75-per-game thing.

            And I would not suggest that Tim needs to embrace the A-11, since right now they’re no more than Internet press releases. But if there is one thing that the A-11 is trying to say about itself is that it respects the traditional football ethic. And Tim is a genuinely a guy who has the traditional football ethic. So, when the A-11 seeks to link with Tebow, I think that the A-11 is being genuine, rather than cynical.

            As Brandi writes, the A-11 is acting how we would like a league to act. She is certainly not right about everything, but she does have interesting perspective, and she’s all-in on the A-11.

          • tisa says:

            I agree, using someone for your own benefit like these people are doing is not at all respectful and please be careful of Brandi and RBLSports. I don’t think those articles are as much in support of T2 as they are disdain of the NFL. Like the way the NFL does business or not, they are what T2 wants to be and he’s working very hard to get there. I think he would probably just go into his ministry full time before he would do that. Those leagues come and go and the folks who play in them are usually there because they can’t make it in the NFL. I think Timmy would just accept not making it as part of God’s plan and go on about his (or His)business.

          • Lynn says:

            I SO VERY MUCH AGREE WITH TISA, DOUBLY SO THAT THE NFL IS WHAT TIM WANTS!!

            Tell me this is not exploitation! I keep waiting to hear someone has received a letter from Tebow’s lawyer.

          • The Mascot Army says:

            A11 is surely self interested, but they consider Tim as an elite athlete and would surely compensate him as such. the nfl just wants him on sidelines to sell jerseys and get us idiots to watch games he won’t play in. I also doubt tim would hang it up if he doesn’t get on an nfl roster this year. he’s always improving and never gives up.

        • Thrawn says:

          Maybe a show of respect, but how about Tebow actually say it is okay to capitalize on his name. They’re trying to generate some buzz about a player who may not even be interrested in joining their league. Just seems to be a cheap ploy that is no better than the Jets trading for him to generate headlines and a bit of national attention.

  7. BuzzyBuzzard says:

    Its is also rumor that T2 agent is asking about the same as his rookie contract for his srevice the idea being that if its too cheap they will never start him so that is another reason that the GMs are being Shy and if he is too cheap someone will just use him and his folliwing.

    • Thrawn says:

      Maybe, but the important thing is…

      Does he want to play or not? His best chance is if he can get on a roster, and if that means signing at a bargain basement price, then so be it. If he really is the best QB on a given roster, he will play. Ask Russell Wilson and a very expensive Matt Flynn. Teams will find a way to dump the expensive guy if they really feel the cheaper guy is the answer. My guess is Tebow has yet to convince a front office that he is such a man.

    • Larry says:

      I have a hard time believing that rumor. This is Tim’s life’s dream, so I think he’d almost be willing to pay an NFL team to sign him as a QB.
