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.

    How is Ricky Stanzi on the Jags roster and Tebow sitting at home in Jacksonville waiting for his next opportunity to play? Tebow would definitely generate more revenue! As the hometown hero, he would rally the apathetic Jaguar fans, sell more tickets and memorabilia and possibly give them a chance at winning. How could the successful business man owner not see this? The simple answer is religious persecution. The fact that Tebow is an outspoken Christian and the Jaguars are owned by Shahid Khan an outspoken Muslim should be explanation enough. Don’t fool yourself into thinking it is anything otherwise. Just look at Ricky Syanzi’s name on the roster and the absence of Tim Tebow and ask yourself the same thing I did- Who the heck is this Ricky Stanzi and why is he playing QB for the Jags while Tebow trains at home? The guy has never played in an NFL game. Never rallied a team into the payoffs as Tebow did the Broncos. Never won a Heisman! Never won a Championship. Never wrote John 3:16 under his eye and knelt in prayer on national TV… ahh there we go. He gets the call.

      So what you’re telling me is ticket/memorabilia sales is the secret to winning games? Seems Legit. Because the way i see it is this. Tebow comes to the team… we still lose games. Then what? Now if we win games then that’ll be all good. But no one ever answers the question “But what happens if nothing changes?” Now we will have wasted a roster spot on just another College Hero.

    Hey Keith, if you weren’t such a racist you would know that Khan said he would of drafted Teblow if he owned the team at the time. He tried to trade Denver for him but Elway said that he gave Tim the choice and he chose the Jets. So get off your bible and get the facts before you run your mouth Jack Ass. Oh and he isn’t at home he is in LA living it up with all the other homo virgins.

    A lot of mean spirited bigets like to pound on this issue. I’m not a Jaguar fan for sure. In my humble opinion, if I owned the Jags it would be an issue of how much, guidelines, when can you arrive, what size jersey, etc. The Jags are soooo pitiful on offense, especailly with Drew-Jones out, they have nothing to lose but more games. Sitting up watching the NFL channel last Friday nite, they showed Denvers run to the playoffs and the two games of the playoffs. I was impressed with the drive and determination of the Denver team around Tebow. Seems he had full support of teammates and coaches alike. With unbelievers growling around about Tebow, like their opinions are the only valid ones…..talk about hippocracy!…….someone such as Tebow will always be discriminated against because of his bold stance, which he is fully entitled to just like the naysayers. Very interesting senario and intriguing, I personally encourage the Jags to step out in faith, sign Tebow and let the chips fall where they may. Blessed is the man whose trust is in the LORD.
