    at least that's what their new gm made clear today: http://espn.go.com/new-york/nfl/story/_/id/8833076/tim-tebow-new-york-jets-not-jacksonville-jaguars-plans-new-gm-says

    oops! this was addressed on the 'coaching carousel' thread -- 26 pages in: http://www.sportsjournalists.com/forum/threads/93346/

    They're just scared he'd be too good, or something.

    As someone who covered Doug Flutie's Patriots years, let me say that no team should ever, ever acquire a hometown hero for a quarterback unless he's a Hall of Famer. When the guy fails, he's impossible to get rid of. The Jags are the last team for Tebow, even though the record states he's better than Gabbert (the record states everybody's better than Gabbert).

    I'll say this for Tebow: he's better than two (and probably three) of the starters the Cardinals trotted out this season.

    and tebow is tough to get rid of wherever he plays for a while because of cult following. heck, he'd still be with the broncos if peyton hadn't dropped in their laps....

    And he'd have them in the playoffs, too, by God!

    I don't think anyone is scared he'd be too good. They're just worried about how bad if they sign him.

    Dave Caldwell's last two NFL stops have been Atlanta (Matt Ryan) and Indy (Manning). It's obvious he wants that type of QB, not Tebow. Since Khan interviewed him three times, he had to know of his feelings about Tebow, and signed off on it.

    Obligatory "and what good does Tebow do them down the road when they're the LA Jaguars" comment. We now resume this thread already in progress.

    Oh, he's the kind of GM who wants a QB like Manning or Ryan.

    We've all been over the Tebow thing before. After three years in the league, most people know what he can and cannot do.

    If Tebow's your starter, you have to build the offense to fit his strengths, which are running the option or some sort of spread attack. You could even convert him to another position. He can potentially be a weapon if used in short yardage and goal line situations. But there about a million guys you'd rather have dropping back to pass.

    Now, is what Tebow brings to you in special situations worth the distractions he likely brings? I suspect that is what will cause most coaches to shy away.
