Tebow rally fails miserably


The people have spoken.

All dozen of them.

The Monday rally in Jacksonville aimed at pressuring the Jaguars to sign Tim Tebow failed miserably, per multiple accounts.

We predicted the event, which was scheduled to begin at 3:16 p.m. ET on Monday and due to last three hours and 16 minutes, would draw between three and 16 people. It looks like it did.

It would be fitting if 11 ultimately showed up, which would match the total points the home team has scored this season.

Regardless, the Jaguars weren’t there to even notice. As Ed Werder of ESPN pointed out on Monday, the team decided to stay on the West Coast for the week between games at Oakland and Seattle.

It doesn’t mean that the nationwide throng of Tebowmaniacs would pipe down if Tebow ends up on a team with a non-franchise starting quarterback. It does mean that the Jaguars are risking no customer-relations problems by continuing to proceed without Tebow on the team.

The more significant potential customer-relations problems may come from the team’s performance in Week One and Week Two.
