The White House wanted nothing to do with a petition aimed at compelling the Jacksonville Jaguars to hire Tim Tebow. But Jacksonville-area TV and radio stations will have no quarrels with cashing checks used to purchase advertisements arising from the same plea.
Orlando-based lawyer John Morgan has developed an ad aimed at cajoling Jaguars owner Shahid Khan into signing Tebow.
The spot has been posted by the Orlando Sentinel.
“I’m John Morgan of Morgan & Morgan, and I wanna talk Tebow for one minute. Here’s the evidence. Tim Tebow played on two national championship teams. He won the Heisman as the best college player in the country and was drafted in the first round by the Denver Broncos. Somebody knew somethin’. And after he got his only chance to start, the Broncos were 1-4 and he led them to the AFC playoffs, and beat Pittsburgh.
“The Jaguars are 27-42 in the last five years, one of the worst records in NFL history. And more in store for this year. We can’t even fill an entire end zone.
“Tebow is one of us. He has class, character, and he’s a winner. Let’s win, Mr. Khan. Once upon a time, so-called experts probably doubted your potential, and now look at you.
“Give our guy a shot. I’ll even buy that box your tried to sell me. Remember this: You can’t TiVo Tebow. Let’s do this Mr. Khan. For the people. Let’s win.”
Khan would likely be inclined to give it a try, but he has entrusted the football operation to a General Manager who has made it clear that none of the clocks in Jacksonville ever will be set to Tebow Time.
