After the Jacksonville Jaguars bumbled their way to a 28-2 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, Magic Johnson offered a suggestion to those who run the Jaguars.
“If the Jaguars are going to only score 2 points they might as well call Tim Tebow!” Magic tweeted to his 1,700,568 followers.
Magic is a basketball man, one of the top five players ever to play in the NBA. He’s not an NFL expert.
Still, Magic makes sense. The Jags are the worst team in the NFL and are not exactly stacked at quarterback.
And the Jags are struggling to sell tickets. I’ve never understood why the NFL placed a team in Jacksonville, which is hardly a metropolis. Will say this smallish city has done a decent job of supporting its franchise, despite all the recent troubles.
You can talk all you want about Tebow’s thorn in the flesh – his erratic left arm – but there’s no getting around this truth:
Tebow could bring excitement to the NFL’s most downtrodden team.
He also could help fill those empty seats with fans who remember his glory days as quarterback at Florida.
