As a football fan I am sick and tired hearing Tim Tebow's name brought up in daily conversation. Having Skip Bayless of ESPN defend Tebow as a “good Quarterback” is bad enough. However fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars may have surpassed Skip Bayless in the “Tim Tebow butt kissing” department.
Jaguars' fans have filed an official petition to the White House. They want President Obama to force the Jaguars to sign Tim Tebow and make him their starting Quarterback. Below is the official request made to the White House.
“Jacksonville Jaguars fans want the team to sign recently released QB Tim Tebow. However, rookie general manager for the Jacksonville Jaguars David Caldwell is blocking this from happening. If the Jaguars sign & START Tebow, home games will be sold out, sales will spike, the team will win and the fans will be happy. Mr. Caldwell is ignoring lots of facts about the misunderstood Tim Tebow while in Denver: Passer rating of 125.6 is highest ever in Broncos postseason history. Most yards per completion (31.6) in NFL playoff history.100.5 QB rating is best ever for a Broncos QB in his first start. Third most passing yards in a game by a Bronco rookie QB. (308, in his 2nd start), First 15+ point comeback in the final 3 minutes of an NFL game since the merger,7 game winning drives in just 16 games!”
This petition is just pathetic. First off President Obama has enough to think about lately. A millionaire Quarterback/Preacher should be the farthest thing from the President's mind right now. Second the President can't force the Jaguars to give Tim Tebow a job. That would be stupid. That's like saying President Obama should make the Yankees sign a 100 year old man because he's lived a long time. There is no thinking behind the petition and that's what makes it pathetic.
Let's just end the conversation on Tim Tebow. If Tim Tebow was any good as a quarterback, then the Jets would've started him ahead of Mark Sanchez last season. The fact is they didn't. Tim Tebow is not an NFL quarterback no matter what this petition (or even the President) might say.
