Oh yeah, I’m going there. But first let me start off by saying I am glad to be back writing and soon to be back in being more hands on with Inside Edge Sports. I have been out on personal leave, which is why you haven’t read or heard anything from me recently with the site or podcasts. So what better topic to come back to then the now really old and very much dragged out “Bring Tebow Home” plea? Well don’t worry, I have a reason for this. Simply put……Why Not? That is what www.jags-tebow.com asks fans in Jacksonville, even starting a petition for the Jaguars to sign Tim Tebow. Because you know, this wouldn’t be right without a good old fashion petition. But yet, as pointless as signing a petition for that is, there is a feeling that is starting to go around Jacksonville. For some, that Tebow bug is itching more then ever. But for most, it is the simple fact that this Jacksonville Jaguar team has the ability to become one of the worst teams in the National Football League…..EVER. I really didn’t want to jump to conclusions, but I’ve heard it all. “Let’s give Gabbert a shot, get back to form after his injury.” “Wait until Maurice Jones-Drew gets back to form, and when we get a healthy Mercedes Lewis and fresh Justin Blackmon before we judge this team.” I covered this team in the off-season from a 2-14 season and really believed up until the pre-season that this team could improve. I then told myself, “It’s only pre-season, we are going to be so much more competitive in the regular season”. Now we are four games in, at 0-4 and easily the worst team right now in the NFL, DESPITE the fact there are 3 other teams with the same record. 32nd in Points per Game, 32nd in Total Yards per Game, 29th in Points Allowed per Game, and 25th in Total Yards Allowed per Game. I’m done hearing excuses for this team. There is an option that has been decided for months: “Even if he is released”. Words that have no meaning now with how this team has performed. It’s Tebow Time, ladies and gentlemen.

As you can tell by my recent mock draft on 1010XL.com, I recently had a little extra time on my hands an decided to look at some 2013 prospect cuts. One of the players I came across that I’m very familiar with due to seeing just about every Clemson game in the past year or so is Tajh Boyd. As we all know he is projected to be a high 1st round draft pick in next years draft and is one of the top QB’s in the world of college football. That being said, I decided to do a scouting report on him, take it from me, he and this Clemson offense is exciting to watch. Below is my thoughts and analysis on him. I also linked a few youtube videos for you all to watch on him as well.

For those of you who missed it, the latest episode of Gridiron Season is in the books. I was joined by my good friend of Arden Sports Talk in Arden Franklyn who talked on his team the Indianapolis Colts. We touched on subjects such as the emergence Andrew Luck, the addition of Trent Richardson, FIU alumni T.Y. Hilton, Robert Mathis and more. Furthermore, I also touched on the Jags feeling the effects of the Gene Smith’s tenure, and on the UGA matchup against LSU along with more college talks. So what are you waiting for? Check it out, give us your feedback, and as usual we thank you for listening.

As of lately I’ve felt that one of the departments we really haven’t touched on here on IES is fantasy football. Just based off of my observation I’d say a majority of our supporters participate in fantasy football just as I do along with our other writers. That being said, one of our very own contributors in Ryan Dooley on multiple occasions has shared his fantasy football insight (helpful insight at that) with me on Twitter via Fantasysportsdojo.com, which he also writes for. After reading his last couple posts, I felt they were well worth sharing with you all who are also into into fantasy football. Below is his last post which is on some of the observations he’s made for week 3 fantasy team owners. What players are worth your time, and which ones aren’t? Find out from Ryan himself. Enjoy the read!

After the great reception my last article on Publix got from you all (thanks for the read by the way), I decided to send the good people over at 1010XL yet another post. I felt that if I were to send them something to post that it should be something just as interesting as the last. That being said, what is more interesting than speculating just what this team will do in their next draft ? If you all follow me on Facebook along with our group page you probably know how this article will begin, but I added an extra two rounds in this mock to make things interesting. Check it out, it’s a solid read if I must say so myself. Also feel free to comment on it, and give me your here, on Twitter (@IES_Don), or Facebook (linked above).
