Really ? Did you not see the above post ? That is not the answers they got when they polled Jags fans.
Have you seen his jersey sales? The people in Florida love him and would instantly become huge Jaguars fans because they get to hang on Tebow's nuts a little longer.
Tebow led the NFL in jersey sales in May, but hasn't sustained that lead in any other month. Also, most of the profits from jersey sales are directly funneled back into the NFL, with the player and team getting a very small percentage.
Jersey sales don't always equate to season ticket purchases. Since 1999, the Jaguars have seen a steady decline in ticket purchases, specifically corporate and season long packages.
Ten years of losing in the league's smallest market with a fifteen year old fan base is a recipe for disaster, no matter who they drafted.
