NBA legend Magic Johnson has had his foot in just about everything business related the past decade, including attempting to bring the NFL back to Los Angeles.
Because of that, I guess he’s earned the right to give his NFL free agent philosophies, his most recent being a suggestion that quarterback (lol) Tim Tebow should be playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Per Magic’s Twitter, via the Herald Review:
“If the Jaguars are going to only score two points,” Johnson tweeted Sunday, “they might as well call Tim Tebow!”
The mere mention of Tebow’s name in association with the Jaguars franchise seems to create a massive split, with some having near coronaries while some embrace the idea.
It’s something Mike Bianchi believes would be good for the team:
It’s pretty sad when an NBA legend who now owns a Major League Baseball team in Los Angeles knows more about running an NFL franchise in Jacksonville than those who are actually running the NFL franchise in Jacksonville.
You see, Magic gets it and always has. First and foremost, he’s always believed sports should be fun and entertaining. In contrast, the Jaguars, for the last decade, have put a product out on the field that has been mundane and unwatchable. And, yet, they steadfastly refuse to throw a bone – a Te-bone – to those dwindling few of us who still watch their games either in the stadium or on TV.
Will somebody explain to me again why the Jaguars won’t give Timmy a chance?
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: When you have nothing, you have nothing to lose.
While the idea of Tebow under center is certainly an unsure prospect, Bianchi does have a point. The current situation isn’t working, so why continue to run with it?
