    If this was truly done just as a publicity stunt for a year to increase sales of PSL's (or whatever they are called) & merchandise, then the Jets F.O. should be given double the penalty that the Saints got.

    As to your point on Tebow actually bring something to the team - all he brings on the football side is more questions. You just extended your supposed QB of the future for 3 additional years plus you signed a back-up QB a month ago via F.A. The first interception Sancez throws will start the Tebow scream. And if there is one thing I am certain of going into next year is that Sanchez's psych is very fragile right now. Then you add in a lost 4th round pick which could have brought you another down lineman to look at or an off the radar safety, and you are screwed. The Jets have serious flaws and this answers none of them. Maybe Jacksonville will give up their 1st round pick to the Jets for Sanchez. At least they get a shot at a useful player and they have no QB issue next year. They start the year knowing they have the worst in the NFL as far as pasing is concerned. You can only go up from there.

    There is no rule against bringing in a played to increase hype and sell shirts.

    In all the Tebow discussions the main reason discussed when it came to Jacksonville's interest was filling the thousands of empty seats.

    And face it the Jets are a hype happy team and have a huge inferiority complex when it comes to the Giants.

    In Response to Re: Broncos Trade Tim Tebow to the Jets : Agreed.  And you said what did the 100 yards matter if the Broncos didn't put up any points.  All I'm saying is that when Tebow ran for nearly 100 yards, the Broncos put up 23 points, a significant number.  The game in which the Broncos didn't put up significant points was in the playoffs when Tebow only ran for 13 yards (no where near 100).

    OK but 13 of those points came in the first quarter. The defense adjusted and the Broncos had a huge 2 FGs until the 4th quarter when the scored against a Pats defense made up of a BB players playing outside their normal positions experiment.

    Basically plan A was a failure. Plan B was a success. Plan B became the playoff game plan A and no plan B was needed.

    You just can't make this stuff up....only the Jets!

    Jets must write 34 checks to Denver





    A postscript to the contract snafu that held up the Tim Tebow trade for eight hours Wednesday:

    As you know, the Jets agreed to pay $2.503 million of a salary advance due Tebow. Now the final details are in: The Jets will pay it back to the Broncos over the course of two seasons -- $1.5 million in 2012 and $1.03 million in 2013, a league source told ESPN sports business analyst Andrew Brandt.

    The payments will be made in 1/17th weekly installments. In case you're wondering, that breaks down to $88,235.29 per week in 2012. So, in essence, the Broncos are on the Jets' payroll.

    And, yes, that money counts on the Jets' cap, a source told ESPNNewYork.com.

    Originally, the Jets felt they didn't have to pay any of the salary advance. They were so confident in that belief that they announced the trade, via twitter and text messages to the New York media, at 1:03 p.m. A disagreement ensued when they forwarded the trade papers to the Broncos. The Jets thought it was just a formality; the Broncos demanded repayment of the entire salary advance, $5.03 million.

    Soon there were reports out of Denver that the Jets had made the trade blindly without having read Tebow's contract. Even Tebow's brother, Robby, told reporters in Florida that the Jets "didn't read the fine print." Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum, in a late-night conference call to announce the trade, stated emphatically that he had read the contract and knew the provisions. Based on his take, the two teams interpreted the provisions differently.
