Jaguars TE Marcedes Lewis

I Don't Want Tim Tebow

on My Team!

012713_mercedes_lewis_tebow_launchThe Jacksonville Jaguars only won two games last season and are in DESPERATE need of help at quarterback, but tight end Marcedes Lewis wants no part of Tim Tebow.

Tebow's future with the New York Jets is tenuous at best and most experts think the team will send him packing this offseason.

And while the GM of the Jags has already come out and said he doesn't see Tebow joining his hometown team, Lewis hammered the point home last night in Hollywood ... telling our photog, "We need a guy that's going to put us over the hump right now. Not a project."

Might time for Tim to brush up on his typing skills.

4 comments in 5hrs??? If this was an article about Tim Tebow, there would be dozens of comments by now. This guy is clearly a jealous nobody. And for anyone who disagrees, he's in Hollywood wearing a Yankees hat, taking to TMZ. No fame whoring at all!!

Perhaps they will contract Tebow and send Lewis packing. He is not that good to worry about.

So I guess Lewis thinks these kinds of comments are going to make things better? He needs to make sure his own locker is not cleaned out as he also is a part of a failing recipe!!

Here are some stats comparing Colin Kaepernick and Tim Tebow.

Colin Kaepernick--9 Starts San Francisco--Thrown 13 touchdown passes (four interceptions)--Rushed for 440 yards so far in his nine starts--Averaged 49 yards rushing per game.--Rushed for four touchdowns--

Tim Tebow----13 Starts Denver--14 touchdown passes(six interceptions)--Rushed for 686 yards--Averaged 53 yards rushing per game.----Rushed for six touchdowns---

Very close and Kaepernick is playing on a better team than Tebow had to work with.

Here is a Utube video by Mike Ditka that pretty much sums up my sentiments on the whole thing.

I think the Jags and the city of Jacksonville have two different perspectives. People from Jax would BUY tickets if Tim came here and the players of the JAGS would play games if Tim was not here....hey jags lets put away the coke and violence and actually focus on football please. after going to many home games i have realized, and you should too, you dont play to win you just play to give the other team some one to beat

Get over it Tebow fans, The guy spoke the truth. He has more talent in his pinky finger than Tebow will ever have. Atleast he has a job, unlike Tebow who know one wants. Hey you caan watch your precious Tebow in the Canadian league.

Very sad that Tebow receives this type of treatment when it's clearly for his religious faith. The media hounded him, made story after story on him, over saturated him in the media and blew him up to more than what he was - a mediocre quarterback AND apparently doing something like a pose or a dance after a score or whatever is a very bad thing - for the white christian guy. It's too bad, but when you start persecuting someone for their faith, it's a verrrry slippery slope.
