Bianchi: Miserable Jaguars must sign Tim Tebow immediately!

New England Patriots quarterbacks Tom Brady and Tim Tebow warm up before facing the New York Giants in their NFL preseason game in Foxboro

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again:

When you have nothing, you have nothing to lose.

And, believe me, after watching the dismal Jaguars get blown out 28-2 by the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, it’s already clear to me after one week of the NFL season: The Jaguars have nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Here’s all you need to know about Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert: It wasn’t until the fourth quarter that the Jags offense progressed past midfield.  I’m not saying Gabbert is a coach-killer, but he’s been Jacksonville’s starter for three years and the Jaguars are on their third head coach.


Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying Tim Tebow will ever be a great NFL quarterback, but my point with the Jaguars has always been this: What’s the worst that could happen if they signed Tebow? Are they worried they that the the great Tebow experiment would become a side show? Guess what? A side show is better than no show at all! One season of being compelling is better than the last decade of being irrelevant.

Why does this hapless organization continually refuse to throw fans of Jacksonville a bone by signing a hometown hero — the city’s most famous and favorite son? Again, where’s the downside?

The Jaguars are already miserable. So what if they continue their misery under Tebow? Then they get the No. 1 pick and draft Lousville’s Teddy Bridgewater. Good for them.

At least Tebow, even if he fails, would make this season bearable. He would make the Jaguars immediately interesting and relevant. The fact is, nobody wants to watch the Jaguars right now, but if they sign Tebow and play him then everybody will watch them.

And, who knows, maybe just maybe Tebow would be able to work his magic with the Jaguars. Maybe he would do what he’s done every place he’s ever been — win. He won state championships in high school, national championships in college and even took the sad-sack Denver Broncos to the playoffs in his only year as a starter in the NFL.

Give me one logical reason why the NFL’s most moribund franchise wouldn’t want a winning quarterback who would sell tickets, move merchandise and make everybody in the country want to turn on Jaguars’ games?

I’m going to keep shouting it from the mountaintop until somebody in Jacksonville listens.


When you have nothing, you have nothing to lose.

    I totally agree with him. Jacksonville Jaguars should warm welcome The hometown hero to change their 2013 season into the positive one. They have nothing to lose to sign him, but he brings all the positive energy to the team. It’s time now for The Tebow Blessing Time !!!

      Tim potentially has a lot to lose though by being a Jaguar where the coaches don’t want him and they are a losing team.

      • Larry says:

        FWIW, Lynn, I agree w/you. All indications are that nobody w/the Jags believes in Tim. So the only reason Tim would be brought to Jax would be out of desperation & greed.

    If Tim had played with the first team offense in the NE Patriots preseason games, he would have passed better. Even his old team mate Brian Dawkins said some of Tim’s passes should have been caught.

    Last season, no one remembers that Tim was only “allowed” to throw 8 passes for the Jets, and he completed 6 passes. That’s 75% if my math is any good. Tim’s stats were better than Mallet’s from last year! Also when Tim moved the team to the one yard line, he wasn’t allowed to make the last play for the TD?? What’s wrong with that picture? They put in Sanchez who handed the ball to Green! Tim was robbed of any opportunity to play with the first team offense. The Jets totally lied to Tim, and they dominated the media all training season, and Rex loved it! Defintely NOT a “classy” team. I know Peyton Manning is awesome, but I loved Tim being in Denver the best!

    If Tim had played well for the Jets, he would have made more money and showed up Sanchez…. so Rex couldn’t afford for the same thing to happen to Mark that happened to Orton in Denver!! Go Tebow!!
