Tim Tebow Rally Fails As Few Jaguars Fans Turn Up (PHOTOS)

While it remains to be seen if Tim Tebow could fill the stands for the Jacksonville Jaguars, it seems that he cannot fill a parking lot.

A cadre of Tebow-supporting Jags fans unhappy with the team's dismal start to the 2013 season hoped a grassroots effort would persuade the organization to sign the free-agent quarterback. A website with the banner query "JAGS-TEBOW WHY NOT ?" was put together and a rally was scheduled for Monday afternoon at 3:16 p.m. EST. A day earlier, the team dropped to 0-2 on the season -- with 11 total points scored in the losses.

OUR MISSION: MAKE IT CLEAR, WE THE FANS, WANT THE JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS TO BRING IN TIM TEBOW.

Although a Facebook group associated with the pro-Tebow movement garnered more than 700 members by the time the rally was set to begin, there were only a few people who actually turned up at EverBank Field.
