JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Some Jaguars fans believe they know a savior for the team's season. His name is Tim Tebow.

The group organized online and gathered at 3:16 p.m. Monday afternoon in the EverBank Field parking lot. 3:16 refers to a verse in the Bible from the Gospel of John. Tebow also painted 3:16 with black paint on his game face.

About 15 demonstrators showed up, pleading for their favorite team to sign the former Gators quarterback.

"We've been resilient as fans. Now we got a quarterback opening. Why not? Certainly people would watch. Everyone would watch. Even people who don't like him, " said rally organizer James Stewart.

The former Heisman trophy winner remains a free agent after getting cut by the New England Patriots.

If Tebow is so good. WHY DID THREE TEAMS LET HIM GO? He refused to go to the jags when he was asked. Keep it up and maybe the owner will move the teem to a better town. You could not give me enough money to go to there games. I am afraid I might get killed going or coming for what little money I have.

Please quit calling these people Jags fans. They aren't. They are Tebow fans. Atleast do some accurate reporting.
