2013 TURKEYS OF THE YEAR

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.

Kerry,

Talk about a total bust... your little article? The facebook page, Tebow-Jags Why not? Do you even know how many members are in that group? Which is a closed group by the way. The billboards? The airplane we paid for to fly over the stadium before a game? I guess they were ''in town'' if they had a home game weren't they? And I'm pretty sure they've been ''in town'' to see the current billboards on I-95.

I think you should get a Turkey of 2013 award. Get the all of the facts before you publish such a pitiful story. Thursday, November 28, 2013|Report this
