Our friends from Fox Business News just let us know that they spoke to NY Jets owner Woody Johnson. The show will air today at 4pm, but here are some quotes that we found interesting.

On how new recruit Tim Tebow is doing with the New York Jets:
“We’ll know. He comes back this Monday, on the 15th. I am very excited to see what impact he’s gonna have. He is what he is. He’s true to his beliefs; he’s not afraid to tell you what he believes in. I think he will be a very positive influence in the locker room and I think he will help us win a lot of games.”

On whether signing Tebow was mostly his decision:
“If it’s a good decision, if he turns out to be a great player, I will take full accountability for that.”

On whether he powwowed with head coach Rex Ryan about the decision to sign Tebow:
“That whole week we powwowed about it. Rex and Mike make those decisions.”

On whether he has already seen any business results because of Tebow:
“Not really. Jerseys aren’t really our main line of business. Our main line of business is winning games. I expect if we do well, we will continue to sell. We’re pretty well sold out on PSLs despite what you read about.”

On whether the team is sold on Tebow:
“We’ll find out. the team will get together for the first time on Monday, so we’ll see how that works out. From what I hear from the people who played with him in Florida and the Broncos, he is going be well-liked.”

There were a bunch of political quotes that we took out of this. You know, because we only talk football here. I thought the line on PSLs was very interesting though.

Lies and an odd, edited out, political compliment.

But mostly lies.

Translation: Tebow has been phenomenal for business. Did you see how jealous Nike was of Reebok selling all those Tebow shirts!

I did take out the political stuff. That just wasn't going to end well. I let Fox know that we couldn't publish it because of the political commentary. They suggested removing it. Made sense.... :)

I agree with your your edit. :)

I thought Woody's comment was odd, not your removing it.

Please tell me the comment involved hiring Rick Santorum as QB coach.

Sigh.

Leave the jokes to Woody.
