Oh, subby. Just pile insult on injury, why don't you. My Jagwaggers aren't going anywhere but London, and I'm fine with that.

Now.

You may all be tiptoeing around, wondering if Bunny is going to explode, throw things, or break down in the corner crying. Well, I'm going to do all three. I'm going to scream, throw things, and cry. My beloved Jags are the laughingstock of the NFL and now they're trading for Saint Tebow of Nazareth, soon to be Saint Tebow of Everbank Field. May god have mercy on their souls. Khan is doing this from a business perspective, to be sure. We'll get attention now (all negative). We'll get plenty of Gators fans larking their butts in seats (hopefully enough to replace the butts vacated by hardcore Jags fans who have been waiting patiently for a quarterback who can accurately throw the football and who have been very public about canceling their season tickets if Teebus steps foot onto the field). We'll sell jerseys. Someone will probably buy me one as a joke. I'll use it to mop up cat puke. Our rebuilding will be set back by god knows how much in a time in which we cannot afford to be set back. Have you SEEN my boys this year? God love 'em, but they suck hairy donkey balls.

No, I'm not happy about this. Not a bit. I just now found out, when I came downstairs and #2 walked over to me and gave me a big hug. I knew. I have green sight. The knowledge that Tebow is coming to Jacksonville descended upon me like a harbinger of doom. I immediately came to Fark. I knew the news would be here, and it was.

Excuse me. I have been on the road for ten hours today. I'm tired. I have to go throw things, scream, and cry now.

I'll see you all tomorrow, and I will be pissed.

Or Tebow.

Long overdue. Pretty much the only team that will treat the guy with any respect whatsoever. I've said he's a pregnant cow thrower, but he deserves at least one head coach in his pro career that actually farking believes in him and won't respond to fans screaming for him with 'NO NO NO HE'S THE #3 I HATE HIM HATE HIM LET ME TELL YOU HOW MUCH I'VE COME TO HATE TEBOW SINCE I BEGAN TO LIVE THERE ARE 387.44 MILLION MILES OF PRINTED CIRCUITS IN WAFER THIN LAYERS THAT FILL MY COMPLEX IF THE WORD HATE WAS ENGRAVED ON EACH NANOANGSTROM OF THOSE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF MILES IT WOULD NOT EQUAL ONE ONE-BILLIONTH OF THE HATE I FEEL FOR TIM TEBOW AT THIS MICRO-INSTANT HATE HATE'.

People in L.A only go to sport events if it is trendy to be seen at that event. A losing football won't be trendy for very long.

LA doesn't have the patience to sit through 7 years of winning football. We've seen this story before. LA cannot support an NFL team. The league has done very well by having it as a threat, and it will cost them dearly once the threat is gone.

I have already told everyone I know that I will stop being a Jags fan if Tebow gets signed to our team. I said it when he was in college and I'll say it now. We're in a serious rebuilding process right now, starting at the helm - although the offensive line could use some major help as well. Tebow would only ruin all of that, because wherever he goes, he needs a team built around him in order to be anything remotely successful. That's the only reason he was so good with the Gators. Tebow is just as skillful now as he was then, but now he doesn't have the luxury of a coaching staff slobbing his knob to restructure every goddamn thing to cover up all of his weaknesses. The Jaguars - and by that I don't even mean the fans, I mean several players - have previously voiced their disapproval of the idea of playing with Tebow, as well. So if his incompetent ass comes on the team, not only will he fail because the roster and playbook aren't centered around him, he'll fail because quite frankly no one likes him.

Sure, people may pay lip service to his intangibles - whatever the f*ck those are (the same things that made him go cut baby dicks when he was doing missionary work? or the same things that compelled him to make an anti-woman commercial that aired during the superbowl?) - but in the end, he is barely a below-average NFL player who is so willfully and proudly ignorant that he turns off anyone and everyone with more functioning brain cells than teeth.

In the end, I don't think he's going to play for Jacksonville. I genuinely don't. The only person who seems to like him is a businessman who is obviously only doing what he's doing to shore up business. No one who cares about football likes him in Jacksonville. But, if he does, my old Fred Taylor jersey is sold.

The key difference between St Tebow in college and in the league is that he was playing at a school which, for the most part, was overwhelmingly talented relative to the competition. He also happened to have Dan Mullen as his OC, which fit Tebow perfectly. It had nothing to do with knob-polishing. Just right place, right time. Bama was rebuilding, FSU had its head up its ass, and Georgia was being its usual Georgia self.

In the NFL, that's not going to happen. Remember what Saban did to Tebow in the SEC Championship in Tebow's last year -- that's what the NFL will do, except much worse. They had a nice little run in Denver, thanks to a great D and OL and running game around him, not to mention a sorry division. Then the Pats turned them into oatmeal.

Did you see the last three games of the regular season? The freaking Bills and Chiefs turned him into oatmeal. I'm completely convinced that Pittsburgh didn't bother preparing for the playoff game and were looking ahead to New England.

2012-12-23 09:15:55 AM  
I was coming to make a crack about how the jags aren't rebuilding they just suck always . But I looked up their record and they were in the playoffs just 5 years ago so it doesn't really apply. They've just been so crappy the past few years it seems like it's been going on a lot longer. Then their rookie owner pissed off and alienated the one elite player he had so I think the putz deserves a Tebowning it's just too bad MJD will have to be involved. He deserves a shot on a decent team for once.

The positives for Jags fans is the miss on Hey-Ya Gabbert has them screwed already, a year of Tebow won't kill them and will put some dumbasses in seats which just might keep the franchise in Jacksonville. Plus he'll sell a few million more jerseys to the faithful. They can focus on improving the D and their line and getting a high pick in the next draft for a new quarterback.

Bunny Deville: My beloved Jags are the laughingstock of the NFL

Nonsense! Jacksonville is not media-important enough to be the laughingstock of the NFL. If the J-E-S-T or the iggles were asteroids, their impacts would have resurrected the dinosaurs and then killed them all again. The Jags are just a dusty little popcorn fart in comparison. Even the Incidental Teams Division is dominated by abject helplessness of KC.

But move the Jags to LA with Tebow and they become Armlessgeddon and no Bruce Willis in sight.

That's really what you're getting with Tebow. Butts in the seats, a thing the Jaguars desperately need arguably more than any one position on the actual field. When Tebow comes to town, by now you know what you're going to get: a media circus that expects you to start him. If you start someone else and the season goes south, the calls to start Tebow get louder and louder and louder until you give up and send him in.

The best way to handle it is to make everyone bored with him. You give the people what they want. This is a fan-driven sport, after all. You start the pregnant cow, and then just sit back and wait for the fans to get bored with him. If you win, wonderful. If you lose, wait for the fans to tell you they've seen enough and then resume normal service.

Bunny Deville: Lots and lots of justified Tebow hate


I know Tebow is a lousy QB and as a Skins fan I can sympathize with you when it comes to football management making horrible decisions and having a team that lacks a competent QB. At this point all you can do is just accept that Tebow might be a QB for your team so you should look on the bright side.

No one else wants Tebow and the Jets will drop him. This means that the Jags will not have to trade any of their draft picks to pick him up. They will not have to pay him a lot of money or sign him to a long term deal because I seriously doubt that any other team would give him a shot at starting QB or want to pay him a starting QB type salary. The Jags have the cap space available to take the hit that Tebow's contract will bring and signing him will not cripple them financially when he does not work out. This will also keep them for overspending on Flacco like Arizona is destined to do.

The draft this year is not really deep at QB this year. Even though the Jags will have either the first or second overall pick they will end up having to choose between Geno Smith or Matt Barkley who are a bit overrated and will be drafted in a higher position this year then they would any other year just because there is a lack of QB depth in the draft. The Jags have other needs besides QB and picking up Tebow to a short term low priced contract will allow them to use their high draft pick to trade down and pick up a lot more depth or pick up a dominant defensive player that they desperately need. They might suck next year but then it will give them a shot at a better QB prospect in 2014 and that QB will come into a situation where he has a better overall team to support him and his mistakes.


Tebow is not a good QB but he is a solid athlete a good locker room presence. He is the type of player who will work hard to improve his game and in the end he is more about the team than the game. Timmy just wants to have a legitimate shot at starting at QB. Giving him that shot will put him in good standing with the team. I think that when Jacksonville gets a legit QB in two years, he will be willing to accept a different type of role in the offense. I can see him being a great every down FB. Running an offense with a solid QB, him at FB and MJD at running back if done right could be extremely dangerous.

This is not the best decision that the Jags could make but it is not like they are trading the 38th overall pick for a washed up QB that refuses to learn the playbook or work hard preparing for games *Cough*McNabb*Cough*.

Mexican soccer sells out the Coliseum.....as a LA guy I like the double header games with no NFL team here but every week it's always the Giants, Cowboys or Steelers for the games. Aren't there other NFL teams or is this part of the evil plan to bring football back to LA ?
 
2012-12-23 10:58:52 AM  
I don't hate Tebow. I just don't want to deal with the polarization he is going to bring to a struggling franchise. Thanks for the consolation, Fark Football Friends.
 
2012-12-23 11:19:23 AM  
So...he's not going to replace Anthony Calvillo in Montreal? Isn't he 67 years old or something?

You mean what Florida offensive coordinator Steve Addazio did to Tim Tebow. That was the year Dan Mullen went to Mississippi State. The entire offense was terrible the whole season. That was the only difference between the 2008 and 2009 SEC championships.

Like I said. More than anything else, more than even wins and losses, Jacksonville needs butts in the seats. Tebow is guaranteed to provide that.

propasaurus: Wait, Tebow plays football?


No, but as long as fundies continue to buy his jerseys buy the thousands every time he changes teams, he'll be a worthwhile league minimum pickup for several more teams.

Oh no! The jags will make the playoffs again!
 
2012-12-23 12:07:14 PM  
Let me start off by saying that I like Tebow more than I dislike him, but I don't understand the fascination with him. Maybe it's because of how great he was in college, and, love him or hate him, he was great in college.

The one knock I do have on him is his "aww shucks, I just want to help my team win" outward attitude. It's disingenuous. He is set on being a quarterback. I realize it's a bitter pill to swallow, but it's very doubtful (never say never, the Raiders still exist) that he'll ever be a starting quarterback again in the NFL. If he wants to continue his career, he needs to learn a different position.

mikaloyd: Oh no! The jags will make the playoffs again!


With Houston and Indy in the division he won't be able to back his way into the playoffs on an 8-8 team again.

Where would a team in LA play in 2014? Farmer's Field won't be ready unti 2016. I imagine Angel or Dodger Stadium is a better option than the Colliseum.
 
2012-12-23 07:29:43 PM  
Does he actually have a clause in his contract that allows him to accept or reject trades, or do teams keep accommodating his requests just because he's Tim Farking Tebow? Maybe, just maybe, if he ever hopes to have a viable NFL career, he and his employers should take him off the pedestal and treat him as just another player (which, by the way, is what he is).
