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.


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


The banner was seen in the second quarter, after Jaguars QB Blaine Gabbert had thrown two interceptions, according to 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.
