It’s shaping up to be another long season in Jacksonville and some fans have already grown tired it and will be voicing their displeasure in a Monday afternoon rally.
According to ESPN, a group of Jacksonville Jaguars fans will hold a ‘sign Tim Tebow‘ event today, which will last three hours and sixteen minutes – an omage to the bible verse Tebow often wore on his eye black:
A group of Jacksonville Jaguars fans will hold a rally Monday in the Everbank Field parking lot at 3:16 p.m. ET to encourage the team to sign free agent quarterback Tim Tebow, the former Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Florida.
The rally is scheduled to last three hours and 16 minutes. The starting time of the rally and the planned duration is a nod to a bible verse, John 3:16, which Tebow had inscribed on his eye black in the 2009 BCS National Championship Game.
The group of Jaguars fans have created a website, jags-tebow.com. The mission, according to the website:
“Make it clear, we the fans, want the Jacksonville Jaguars to bring in Tim Tebow. You know you want to see this happen.”
Chad Henne, who started for the Jaguars in their Sunday afternoon loss to the Oakland Raiders, was about the least of their problems, so the efforts to draw Tebow to Jacksonville are likely in vain.
