Jaguars Fans Rally For Tebow--3 Show Up

Uh, it's never a good thing to hold a rally where more media types show up than actual people rallying.

Yet, that appears to be what happened Monday afternoon in Jacksonville.

There was a bit of a ripple in the blogosphere/Interwebs Monday when it was announced a group of disgruntled Jacksonville Jaguars fans were going to hold a rally starting at 3:16p.m in front of the teams stadium to try convincing the team to sign Jacksonville god/former NFL player Tim Tebow.

It appears to not have gone well

Check out this Vine Video of the event:

But the event did get the attention of (surprise) perhaps the biggest Tebow media supporter in the whole land.

They even have their own WEBSITE

Now, all snarkyness aside, it probably wouldn't hurt the Jags to at least take a serious look at this. Because quite honestly, it can't get much worse for the team.

11 points in 2 games. They scored their 1st TD of the season with just under 3 minutes left in the Ugly-a-thon with the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.

It was so bad, an Orlando, Florida TV station aired an apology for being forced by CBS to air the Jaguars/Raiders game.

You can read about that RIGHT HERE

And yes, the dreaded Chad Henne is the quarterback.

Really, we feel horrible, as we were a part of this teams beginnings back in the early 1990's and we have many friends in the River City.

Unfortunately for them, they've got a looooooonnngg way to go before they are going to get better. And they will. But all the years of former G.M Gene Smith are going to be hard to burn off.

It's going to take time.

And while The Tebow might be a short term fix to get butts in seats, there's realistically no scenario where he'd be a long term savior for the team.

And they know this.

But the pressure is going to ramp up. With ESPN pushing the issue, the fanbase will eventually notice and considering Tebow's status as a deity in North Florida, there will be a cry to sign him.

In order for that to happen though, they are going to have to do a little better than today.
