Said it was 100% his call. Would like to see Tebow used more.

Gave Rex a vote of confidence.

I'd like someone to ask him to appraise Sparano after 9 games.....

Yah, but what sense does it make to get one of the top players TEBOW and put him in the basement? It's like getting a new puppy and locking him in the restroom all day everyday.

PLAY TEBOW NOW!! :wild: :wild:

I will not pay attention to the negative comments and hate directed towards me. I will turn the other cheek and follow Tim's example. He works hard and does everything that is asked. He doesn't deserve this, at all. PLAY HIM!!! OR WATCH THE REST OF THE SEASON GO UP IN FLAMES - AS THOSE PERSECUTORS REAP WHAT THEY HAVE SOWN!!!

I'm sure it was endorsed by Woody, for the finances of it. But I don't think he commanded them to bring him in.

Woody is not Jerry Jones....

Exactly. Exactly what I've been saying all along. If you don't use Tebow more you might as well be torturing puppies. It's simple math, really.

(Chandler)'s a nice piece as long as he's the 7th most important player on your roster....I think they're going to be disappointed when they see he's just a pumped-up Drew Gooden.

Why does everyone keep saying this was Woody's call? No evidence for that, besides this insistence that he likes "attention", which is usually a code word for "opening up the pocketbook."

The entire concept of using Tebow as a wildcat QB is ridiculous. As a matter of fact Tebow may be the worst person to run the wildcat in its short history. For Tannenbaun to still push this issue just shows his general lack of football knowledge Why ?

Because hes slow and the Wild cat is generally run by fast/quick players ( WR's RB's) who can get to the outside quickly and simply out run a defense.

The only reason why he was able to run the ball effectively in Denver was because he was the full time QB.

Its obvious the Jets do not want Tebow throwing down field because most of the time he actully runs the wildcat he does not stay back in the pocket long enough to even get to his first read, He usually just takes off running usually directly behind center almost always between the tackles. I dont even think the WR's run patterns I think they right into blocking mode making it even more difficult and ridiculous.

I do not think Tebow is comfortable running the wildcat either. As a full time QB when you drop back to pass you usually have a good portion of the defense cleared out and if Tebow breaks one tackle or sees a huge opening its much easier to run the ball than when the entire defense is expecting it.

Who gives a **** about the Tebow trade and the 4th rd pick.

I'd like to hear Tannenbaum defend giving a below average QB who has shown no improvement during his tenure, an elite QB contract. Why are the Jets stuck with Sanchez for another season and a guaranteed $8.5M?

To me acquiring Tebow is one of the lower sins of this general manager. Our overall roster sucks. How come we have never been able to pair Dustin Keller with an acceptable second tight end? How come we went into a season with Shonn Greene and Billal Powell as our two primary backs? How do we have no receivers behind Santonio Holmes? Why have we not added a single dominant pass rusher since John Abraham? Why did we go so long with a turnstile at right tackle? Why do we have to go free agency to add two decent safeties after being unable to draft and develop anyone? Tannenbaum has overseen an awful process and needs to go.

"It 100 percent came from this department. Do I talk to Woody all the time? Absolutely, but it was our call."

So far, so good.

"Tannenbaum said there was '100 percent unanimity' among him, Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano."

hmm....

I was pretty sure they inked Sanchez to his new contract before they got Tebow. They gave Sanchez his extension before Manning signed with Denver.
