I have. You obviously haven't seen rookies thrown to the fire improve.

I'm not a Gabbert fan, but if I have to choose between Gabbert and Tebow for the next three years, I'll take Gabbert.

Have you seen Tebow play? Or was the Kool-Aid too strong

I agree that the Jags will not trade Gabbert for Tebow. The rest I don't agree with.

Gabbert was terrible, far worse than Tebow. The Jags haven't given up on him as they shouldn't. But as of right now give me Tebow for the Jags over Gabbert.

Gabbert actually has a QB's skill set he just needs to get confidence and stop playing scared.

Tebow has the opposite problem.

Gabbert's value to NFL teams in a trade is greater than Tebow's as an NFL quarterback. The Jags aren't going to trade Gabbert.

The Jags will give up a "used bag of footballs" draft pick equivalent to obtain former 1st rounder Tebow - and yes, he will increase attendance due to his personality and Florida Gator saviour roots, not his ability to evolve into a long-term NFL quarterback. He's a gimmick that always gets solved.

I've been saying for a long time that Tebow is headed for Jax because he will fill seats. They won't be forced to give up much because nobody else will either.
you're not thinking like an owner, you're thinking like a GM...

which isnt wrong, just naive right now...

the current owner in Jax has gone on record saying that he would have used his 1st round pick on Tebow had he been the owner at the time of the draft...

the owner is in this for money, its a business... Jax has as bad of attendance as any team in football...

the owner would happily fork over Gabbert if it netted him Tebow...

Gabbert was terrible, he wouldnt even hesitate...

You don't win a championship by being scared. This is what bothers me about Gabbert. He may have the talent but he may never amount to anything.

Your right about Tebow, but talent isn't everything. We'll be talking about Tebow again.

Agreed with what I left above.

The big difference being that Brees was an unrestricted free agent - with a shredded shoulder to boot.

The Donkos should jump if a 4th rounder is offered for Tebow. The closer it gets to draft day, the price goes down because teams know that he'll be released before OTAs begin.

There you go labeling a rookie a bust.

You can join the bench with those calling Ryan Mathews a bust at the same juncture of his career while playing a position that is much much easier making the transition from college to the NFL, especially when playing quarterback lacking an offensive line and WRs.

Gabbert has a potential future as a quarterback, Tebow doesn't. In a trade, Gabbert has more value.

If your goal is to sell tickets and jerseys as a football owner, then Tebow undeniably has more value.

Default I know that it won't happen despite the rumors that they're interested, but ...

Due solely to the mass chaos of apocolyptic proportions that will arise from such a move, I'm really hoping that Tebow gets traded to the Jets!!!

Get'cha popcorn ready!!!
