In case you were fortunate enough to miss it, yesterday was one of the most extraordinary days in the history of the Jaguars. First the Jets traded for Tebow, then language in Tebow's contract held up the deal, but at the end of the day, the trade went through.
The Jets may have ultimately landed Tim Tebow, but make no mistake about it, the Jacksonville Jaguars are the big winners in the madness yesterday.
I was, and still am, annoyed to say the least when it became clear that the Jaguars were pursuing a trade for Tim Tebow. From a PR standpoint, however, the Jaguars did exactly what they should have. They were one of the finalists to land Tim Tebow, and they weren't willing to overpay for him. It's a win-win because they didn't actually get Tebow (die-hards are satisfied), and the Jaguars made a legitimate effort to land Tebow (casual/Florida fans are satisfied).
