Mike Bianchi discusses Tim Tebow playing for the Jaguars.

Somebody want to explain to me again why the Jacksonville Jaguars won't give Tim Tebow a chance?

I've said it before and I'll say it again:

When you have nothing, you have nothing to lose.

And, believe me, after watching the dismal Jaguars get blown out 28-2 by the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, it's already clear to me after one week of the NFL season: The Jaguars have nothing. Absolutely nothing.

Here's all you need to know about Jaguars starting quarterback Blaine Gabbert: It wasn't until the fourth quarter that the Jags offense progressed past midfield.  I'm not saying Gabbert is a coach-killer, but he's been Jacksonville's starter for three years and the Jaguars are on their third head coach.

Coincidence?

Don't get me wrong, I am not saying Tim Tebow will ever be a great NFL quarterback, but my point with the Jaguars has always been this: What's the worst that could happen if they signed Tebow? Are they worried they that the the great Tebow experiment would become a side show? Guess what? A side show is better than no show at all! One season of being compelling is better than the last decade of being irrelevant.

Why does this hapless organization continually refuse to throw fans of Jacksonville a bone by signing a hometown hero -- the city's most famous and favorite son? Again, where's the downside?

The Jaguars are already miserable. So what if they continue their misery under Tebow? Then they get the No. 1 pick and draft Lousville's Teddy Bridgewater. Good for them.

At least Tebow, even if he fails, would make this season bearable. He would make the Jaguars immediately interesting and relevant. The fact is, nobody wants to watch the Jaguars right now, but if they sign Tebow and play him then everybody will watch them.

And, who knows, maybe just maybe Tebow would be able to work his magic with the Jaguars. Maybe he would do what he's done every place he's ever been -- win. He won state championships in high school, national championships in college and even took the sad-sack Denver Broncos to the playoffs in his only year as a starter in the NFL.

Give me one logical reason why the NFL's most moribund franchise wouldn't want a winning quarterback who would sell tickets, move merchandise and make everybody in the country want to turn on Jaguars' games?

I'm going to keep shouting it from the mountaintop until somebody in Jacksonville listens.

IT'S TEBOW TIME!!!
