What a comeback! You are completely speculating about the Jags wanting him. There is absolutely no proof of that statement being true. So why does anyone need to understand this when it hasn't happened and might not happen at all?

Good luck to Tim coming out and living his new life and his new position. If he happens to land with the Chargers, Chiefs and Raiders (of course they might want Tebow as he was a 1st round pick), may he suck big time.

Good hell man, it's the obvious. I'm not speculating, just restating the obvious fact that he would pack the stands. He would make the Jags millions. And if he was given the big stage.....then you all could trash him if he fails. But if he's given a REAL chance he probably won't fail. He is young and teams positions change every year. I'm just saying it's the obvious place for him to land someday. Or maybe he changes positions, who knows, but the NFL is a better place for having him play in it. He's not playing arena football.

Thanks for reminding me. Some also like to complain that Tebow has not been give a chance despite the 14 games he has played as the starting QB for an NFL team.

And he took the Broncos to the playoffs after several years of not. He's in the record books for a perfect PASS to Thomas and the quickest OT win in history. He got treated raw by Elway and Co. after such a successful prior season. I'm glad we have Peyton but there's no reason in hell that he shouldn't be given a REAL opportunity, without the fear of the rug getting pulled out from underneath him......say, in Jacksonville.....about the time 50% of the seats are empty. (Probably a couple years from now) Don't get all excited, we know they don't want him this year....or so they say.

Most QB's don't get axed after making a playoff run.

A broken clock is going to be right twice a day.
Love how teblowers ignore his pathetic completion percentage & ignore the fact that he was one of the worst 3rd down QBs in the league. 2 areas elway said tebow would have to improve on in order to be viable going forward. He never improved.

The Broncos only made the playoffs because chokeland lost so if you honestly look at the end of the 2011 season it was pretty much horrible. Yes, the Broncos got in but not because the team and Tebow were good, but because chokeland was just plain horrible.

That playoff game against the stellers was fantastic and definitely one of the biggest highlights of the last 10 years or so, but that being said, the next week against the patriots the Broncos got destroyed.

TT had his choice between the jets and the jags and he chose the jets. Had TT been as great as some fans here insist he is, then the jets and the jags would have been in a bidding war for TT. Instead, it was more like a "meh, we will give you this and if you don't like it, that's fine." Elway took the lesser of two deals only because he tried to accomodate TT. It is what it is.

Phillip Rivers screwing up a kneel down. Marion Barber running out of bounds and then fumbling. I could go on and on with all the miracles that got Denver into the playoffs that year.

I don't doubt that the Jags fans (and Florida fans) would come out and pack the stands to watch him. It still doesn't mean that the Front Office wants him! You are speculating that part of the discussion. Tebow has a lot of fans and I if he comes out, he will have those new fans even if they hated on him for his religious beliefs. I am totally speculating too.

I'll always say if Tebow WANTED to improve as a passer he could have. Trouble is, he didn't think he had to improve. He thinks he can win as he is. I guess that's what Elway saw, Tebow was stuck in Florida mode.

It's too bad, Tebow can make all the throws, he just can't do it consistently. He had to work hard to build the passing skills but he didn't do it. He was given a golden opportunity but didn't recognize what he needed to do to succeed at the top level.

So I've been out of the loop. Is Tebow making sandwiches with kircus now?

Most QBs after a playoff run also command a hell of a lot more than a 4th round draft pick. He wasn't axed, he went to the highest bidder. It should tell you something that a 4th is the max any GM thought he was worth, even after the playoff run.

I would have unloaded all of my game tickets if he had returned. If I have to watch a hs level offense, I expect to pay about $8.

Thank you, John Elway.

In 90% of cases, no good can come out of saying anything other than "We like who we've got, we're not interested in anyone else" There's a HOF-level exception to that rule, but otherwise you never hem and haw about QBs unless you're already 100% sure you're going a different direction.
Or unless you're 100% certain you have no interest in the particular QB in question (as Caldwell made clear regarding Tebow).

They both have quarterbacks who can throw accurately. Your comparison is flat-out wrong.

Some of his college numbers make all the haters flat-out wrong. Tebow just needs reps and an organization totally behind him like the tattooed one and 3.

I wonder what Colt Brennan is up to these days?
He was a statistical rape train in college

College stats make me lol.

How's Geno Toretta's HoF induction coming along? Imminent, I suppose, due to all of his brilliant college stats.
