If you've watched any of Gabbert's games, you'll know, he doesn't throw down the field a lot, and when being rushed, he just throws a curve ball to the dirt. lmao..
Tim Tebow might be getting a little too hyped up, but he's a winner regardless, don't care what anybody says. Tebow's from Jacksvonville Florida, Gainesville's, damn near an hour or so, away, and plenty die hard Tebow fans rest in Jacksonville, Florida. Jaguars' ticket sales are not through the roof or anything, and Wayne Weaver, the Jags owner, has sold some the team now, to an Illinois business man. Being 45 minutes away, I think the Jaguars are a couple years away from L.A., hopefully not, for the sake of my eyes resting upon some football action.
^ wow lol
Anywho, I"m not a totally big diss'er of Gabbert, I just don't think he can turn this team around. I think management feels like they shot themselves in the foot. Much props to the league's leading rusher, and that defense, on certain occasions. Other than that, the Jaguars are toast, and yeah, Tebow woulda been a high pick @ 10, for the draft, but you know, hindsight's 20/20

I'm not going to bash Tebow here. He's been winning and that's really all that matters. But you can't say that Tebow would win on any team he is on. There is no hindsight here.
That's something that Denver has, that the Jags don't. It's also something that has allowed Denver to do so well.
Any1 who knows anything about football, knows how the Broncos are winning right now.
Play conservative for 3 quarters. No risky passes, no big plays. Let the defense keep you in it and then win in the 4th. That's how they've won almost all of their games with Tebow.
The Jags could not do what Denver has done. That means Tebow would not be winning any games there, at least no more than Gabbert.
U could not just put Tebow with the Jags and say they would be reversed in fortunes.
Tebow could probably do well on most teams with a strong defense. SF, BAL, PIT, etc...
But if you threw him on a terrible team or a team with no defense (the Pats), then Tebow wouldn't be able to do the same things

That's something that Denver has, that the Jags don't.
Not the last game, for jacksonville, but their defense has put up some numbers this season.
5th in the league, in total defense.
5th in the league, against the pass.
So, yeah, Denver has defense, but the Jags do too.. The Jags offense is like watching paint dry on the wall.
Tebow was there for the taking. Jacksonville was talking about him..
Tebow would have sold more seats, possibly saved a franchise.
Tebow's in Denver, Gabberts in J-Ville..
Who's better, right now?

I have to admit, I doubted your stats about their defense, but u are right. On a cursory glance, that is.
The Jags are 5th in total yards given up and 5th against the pass. On the surface, it looks like they are playing good defense.
Both those places in the standings stats wise are actually better than Denver.
They are only 13th in points allowed. And they are very inconsistent. Some stinkers they've put up:
32 points by the Jets
30 by the Bengals
38 by the Chargers
41 by the Falcons
They are as likely to give up 30+ points as they are to keep you under 21. It's hard to pinpoint what is going on with these team.
Plus look at their offensive rankings:
Pts - 28th
Pass yards - 32nd
Even with Tebow, these numbers are going to be near the bottom of the league. Denver isn't an offensive juggernaut. The Jags wouldn't improve on these numbers.
Tebow being from Florida and going to a Florida team would have been a great PR move. It would definitely bring in more fans. Tebow-mania is a good revenue builder, but building a better team makes more revenue. Do u really think Tebow would have saved the Jags?
