Tim Tebow Fans
They don't know when to release the ball
Say what you want about Tim Tebow’s inability to translate his success in college to the NFL and his stubbornness about switching positions. He was (and continues to be) ridiculed by national news outlets, not to mention football fans around the globe. At the very least, though, you have to appreciate the man’s determination and persistence. Same goes for his fans. Tebow supporters started pushing for him to be signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars — while he was still in college. Despite Tebow’s being let go by three teams in 18 months and Jaguars General Manager David Caldwell’s famous line, “even if he’s released,” Tebow’s fans created online petitions, websites, Facebook pages, newspaper ads and a rally at EverBank Field. Dubbed the “Why Not Campaign” the rally was a complete bust, attracting more members of the media than Tebow fans. And the Jags team and coaching staff weren’t even in town to witness it, which is probably a good thing. Faith and hope are admirable qualities, dear Tebow fans, but sometimes you just have to know when to release the ball. Something Tebow doesn’t do too well, either.
