Pro-Tebow Banner Flies Overhead During Jaguars Game

Those Tebow Supporters Are A Persistent Bunch

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Talk about a sign from above.

A banner flew overhead at EverBank Field in Jacksonville on Sunday, imploring the Jaguars to sign quarterback Tim Tebow.

Why?

Well, as the pro-Tebow faction would say, “Why not?”

CHUCK NORRIS: TEBOW COULD BE A ‘LEGEND’

The banner was seen in the second quarter, after Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert had thrown two interceptions, according to CBSSports.com. The winless Jaguars lost to the Indianapolis Colts 37-3.

There’s a group of Tebow fans who picket for Tebow each Monday, The Associated Press reported. One of their rallies earlier this month drew plenty of media but not many fans.

A group of Jacksonville fans petitioned President Barack Obama to force the Jaguars to sign Tebow in May. It went nowhere. Well-known Florida attorney John Morgan then launched an ad campaign aimed at convincing Jaguars owner Shad Khan to take a chance on the former Heisman winner.

Tebow was cut by the New York Jets after a rough 2012 season and eventually landed with the New England Patriots. He never made the Week 1 roster.

The 26-year-old has since received offers from the Moscow Black Storm and an AFL team in Los Angeles owned by the band KISS.
