Tebow made the decision that was best for him. Lets just accept that and move on. Khan once again proved his commitment to Jacksonville. The man should be commended for his integrity, period.
WOULD RATHER HAVE #11 WITH WINS THAN #15 WITH FANS. GABBERT WILL CONSTANTLY DRAW AN ARRAY OF JAX JAG FANS WITH WINS. TEBOW WOULD BE A (NON) PASSING FANCY WITH ONLY GATOR FANS AND PRODUCE LITTLE OR NO WINS.
I think Khan did the right thing.
Tebowmania is gonna be a distraction.
Where Khan dropped the ball was not getting
Jeff Fisher as a head coach. We all know the
great success Mike Mularchy had in Buffalo.
Tim Tebow sold us out after he supposedly told his friends that he would love to play in him home state of Florida. I guess that is what money and frame does to people; it makes them forget where they came from. Remember this Mr Broadway Tebow, the state of Florida and a lot of the people in it help to make you who you are, and there are a lot of disappointed people that supports you and believe in you!!!
Every aspect of Tebows game has been scrutinized-his throwing motion has been criticized by all the supposed experts,
his 3d down conversion percentage has been mentioned as a weakness and his completion
percentage has been less than 50%.
These are some of the statistics experts use to determine how effective a QB is. But let’s look at a number that REALLY matters to NFL honchos-bucks!
Denver was the 5th best in attendance and were averaging 74,714 butts in the seats per game. Let’s compare that to oh let’s say
Tebows home town team the Jacksonville Jaguars who were 26th in attendance and averaged 62,173 fans per game. If you consider that the average NFL ticket is $77 the Broncos were making $ 965657
per game more than the Jags.
Bronco ticket prices on the secondary market were
5th in the NFL in that category while the Jags are sinking and were ranked 30th
out of 32 teams. According to the website “Seatgeek” the average Jaguar ticket price for the Titan game (for example) was $47 and only worth 47% of face value while Bronco tickets soared to $211 and the face value of the ticket is up 235% for the equivelant game that week against the Patriots.
The bottom line is that Tim Tebow was making the Broncos management look like geniuses. The Jaguars however….. Well the Jags continue to miss an extremely rare business opportunity that, most likely, will never come this way again.
At least not in Jacksonville.
I believe that Tebow has such a high moral standard of character that he was not going to say anything negative about the Jags. But, it has been obvious that the coaching staff did not want him because Gene Smith never has! I would fire Gene Smith! WHEN DID QUATERBACKS BECOME SO FRAGILE THAT THEY CAN NOT HANDLE PRESSURE AFTER A LOSING SEASON? HAS THE NFL BECOME WIMPS TO THEIR OVER PAID PLAYERS? WHAT HAPPEN TO COMPETION?? Carol Eckkdahl
Can’t say as I blame him. Being with a club where the coach and front office isn’t thrilled to have you must have seemed like, “Been there, done that” to him. I wish him the very best with the Jets in the future.
What I’ve heard in the local media here in Houston is that when Tebow was drafted as Denver’s #1 overall, the Front Office in Denver (“then” Coach Josh McDaniels and GM Brian Xanders:) actually wanted him there and supported the pick. The Next year they were terminated and replaced by Coach John Fox and GM John Elway. The New Regime never bought into Tebow nor thought he was a “Pro Style” QB.
That said, Tebow wanted to go to a team that actually wanted him. Sahid Khan (owner in Jax) wanted Tebow, however it was the Front Office ( GM Gene Smith, and Coach Mike Malarkey) who didn’t support the decision. Thus Tebow went to NYJ (where Owner & Front Office) openly said they wanted him there
