Petition to President Obama: Make Jaguars GM sign Tim Tebow

Sports teach us many things about life, rivalry, unity and many other things. Another thing that they also teach us is that fans sometimes get a little bit crazy and do some irrational things.

Case in point is a petition that surfaced on the White House’s “We the People” page that asks President Barack Obama to “Call NFL Jacksonville Jaguars GM David Caldwell and tell him to stop ignoring the Jaguars fans and sign Tim Tebow.”

The full petition reads:

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!

It sounds like they’re still buying into Tebowmania down in Florida.

Tebow may not be an elite quarterback and he may not be the answer for Jacksonville, but with Blaine Gabbert as their current starter, signing Tebow couldn’t hurt. I doubt the President will intervene to make that happen, though.

    Does anyone truly believe that Khan would hire Tebow; a man who is so outgoing in his Christian faith???

    Yes Tebow to Jacksonville and Obama can be one of his wide receivers. Biden can be the head cheerleader.

    People are stupid as hell! The NFL is a private enterprise the fundamentals of capitalism (dispite how far we’ve strayed) requires government to keep their hands off! Anyone who’s name is on that petition should not be allowed to reproduce to prevent the moron gene from spreading farther.

    It’s Jacksonville! Come on if you can’t give your fans a winner y’not give them what they want uh I don’t know doesn’t make good business sense I guess.But then too, The Pres. doesn’t make much sense half the time and when did he become a Jag fan anyway? I do know this much tho the boy”s been a winner at every level despite noticable limitations.And just to show my bi-side truely the favorable difference in a Bronco uniform is a playoff win! So that’s my take on this anyway Jesus Christ aside.

    I do like Tim Tebow. I am a huge college and pro football fan. I hope a team does pick him up and gives him a fair chance. Jacksonville would finally pack that stadium if they were smart and took him. BUT KEEP GOVERNMENT OUT OF FOOTBALL!! They can’t tie their own shoes right now so keep them out of this. Government would take this great sport of ours and truly mess it up! I can’t believe anyone would have ever suggested that – WOW!

      Seriously, people? The government isn’t TRYING to get involved in football!!! This was either a joke, or someone doesn’t understand how the NFL (and/or the government) work. There are so many more important things to get fired up about.

    I certainly agree Tebow would fill the stands in Jacksonville. I also believe the Jags could not be worse off with Tebow at the helm. He proved in Denver he can win games. He took Denver to the playoffs.

    Tebow got really messed over by Jets coach & GM by not giving him a shot last year and especially by not releasing him until after draft. Rex Ryan and GM are
    sorry individuals for doing that to Tebow.

    If God is for you who can stand against you? Tebow will play quarterback this year. The Jags would be fortunate to sign him…………..

    Meril Hoge you “Tebow Hater” I do not watch any sports show you are on.

    How does a non-serious story about a non-serious petition about a marginal football player turn into this hatefest between people on the extremes of the political spectrum? It’s no wonder this country is a mess.

    It has nothing to do with his character or Christianity. I hate to tell some people this but Tebow is not the only Christian in the NFL. All NFL teams care about are 2 things, winning games and making lots of money. If there is a team who thinks he can help them win games they will sign him. There is no conspiracy, so you can take off your tinfoil hats and stop looking for the black helicopters.

    Tebow is a good person but a marginal NFL QB who has been overhyped and overexposed by the media (we all know sports media would never overhype anything). When anybody or anything is that overexposed there is always a backlash.

    all Tim TEBOW needs is a chance; he did NOT get a ‘fair shake’ with Rex Ryan and his Jets. so what? Let’s compare Mark Sackchez .. the O.line misses an assignment and Sackchez hits the turf and usually coughs up the football waa-waa. TIM tucks the ball away and runs straight into the heart of the defense; running OVER and around defenders. Ask Brian Urlacher of the Bears, ask Jame Harrison / Troy Palomalu of the Steelers: TEBOW is one tough dude. He needs help: a team, an O.line that blocks and an extra back like RGIII had in Washington. GO TEBOW. We love you man. And PRAISE THE LORD.
