It's only been about seven hours since Tebowmania ran all over the daunted Pittsburgh Steelers defense, and Tebow has the media buzzing once again.

For Tebow it was just another chapter of his novel of late-game magic, but to most fans it has become the stuff of legend.

While Broncos' fans are rejoicing and celebrating, there is another NFL fan base that can only wonder: What if we had Tim Tebow?

With every fourth-quarter comeback and overtime win, fans of the Jacksonville Jaguars can only assume what life would be like with Tebow at quarterback.

As most of you know, Tebow is a Jacksonville native, played his college football at the University of Florida, and was heavily speculated to be headed to Jacksonville in the 2010 NFL draft. He was supposed to be the answer to the Jaguars' poor attendance woes, prevent blackouts, and even win some football games.

So the question is: Would the Jaguars be any better with Tebow?

In my opinion, it sure seems that way. I say this, not to praise Tebow anymore, or as an insult to current quarterback Blaine Gabbert, but instead because of the "intangibles" brought on by Tebow.

In all likelihood, the Jacksonville Jaguars are the worst passing team in the league with Gabbert or Tebow, so let's get that out of the way. I have been on the record for months as pro-Gabbert because I believe he does have the potential to be a very good quarterback in the league, if he gets the necessary pieces around him.

But when you watch Tebow play the game with that fire and intensity, which only he has, you can't help but feel it while watching it at home. If you can even feel an ounce of excitement from watching him get his teammates riled up while sitting on your recliner, then imagine what it must feel like in the huddle with him.

The Jaguars have become a lifeless team over the past few years, and Tebow has that innate quality to make the players around him better. 

This article is not my plea to the Jaguars front office to find a way to acquire Tebow, but it is my plea to bring the fire back. Whether it is Tebow, a head coaching candidate, or somebody else, this team is desperate for a spark. Until they get one, the Jaguars are in some serious trouble.

Thank you all for reading, whether you are pro-Tebow or anti-Tebow, I would like you to share your opinions, because let's face it; everyone has an opinion on Tebow.
