As you've probably heard, some people - including the owner of the Jaguars - think that the Jaguars should draft Tim Tebow. The idea is that Tebow could help put butts in the seats and hopefully be the team's QB of the future. Other people, however, kind of disagree.

Uche Nwaneri, who plays offensive guard for the Jaguars (and has been a starter for the last two seasons), is one of those people. Nwaneri got on the official Jaguars message board and ripped Tebow a new one. And yes, Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union has confirmed through the team that Nwaneri wrote the, uh, vicious critique you're about to read. Here we go:

So im at a bank trying to cash a check, and the bank teller starts up some convo about how Tebow will save the jaguars. And the hole time, when i asked him what does tebow bring to the game that the jaguars dont already have. yes i can understand the intangibles such as leadership etc. but as a football player, what does he bring that will take the jags to the next level??? he couldnt tell me. so let me drop a quick top 5 for all u fans. this is my top 5 things you should know before you assume Tim Tebow will the tebow jesus in teal town.

5. He cant throw. PERIOD.
4. He cant read any coverage other than probably cover 2 or man cov. PERIOD (the only cov. in college lol)
3. the QB wildcat WILL NOT WORK IN THIS LEAGUE. PERIOD
2. He doesnt know how to take a snap from center, nor is he even comfortable enough to.
1. HE CANT THROW. and thats really something you either have or not, never seen a qb who couldnt ever throw, just all of a sudden beable to throw just because hes now in the NFL.

now if u want to say, tebow will save the Jags TICKET sales... sure, he may beable to help them alot, until people realize this aint gator country no more lol. by the way.... GO BUY SEASON TICKETS!!!!!!!!! Ill be Damned if i have to come out for pregame warmups to a COMPLETELY EMPTY STADIUM ANYMORE!!!!!!!

Yikes. Although I can't say I disagree with him at all.

Of course, one has to wonder what other Jaguar players think of Tebow. Because about the last thing you want to do as a team is draft a guy who your entire team thinks sucks.
