Antonio Cromartie was vehemently against the Jets acquiring Tim Tebow, tweeting twice that the team didn’t need the quarterback since they already had two. In one of his tweets, Cromartie suggested Tebow was just a gimmick quarterback who was there to sell tickets. That was all said before the Jets traded for Tebow. Now that the religious quarterback is on the Jets, Cromartie has done a 180.
“He’s going to bring another element to the Jets,” Cromartie told the New York Daily News. “He’s a winner. He’s a guy that never quits. If you give him a chance to win a game, he’s going to go out and win it. I think that’s what (general manager) Mike Tannenbaum and Rex (Ryan) saw in him.”
Cromartie thinks Tebow will be good for the Jets’ locker room and that he should help push Mark Sanchez. He also didn’t back down from his anti-Tebow tweets.
“I don’t have any regrets,” Cromartie told the Daily News. “I think a lot of people took what I said the wrong way. People took it as me dissing

Tim Tebow is expected to fill the "wildcat" quarterback role for the New York Jets that was once held by departed wide receiver Brad Smith.
According to one of Smith's teammates in Buffalo, the Jets are getting the raw end of the deal.
Speaking with me and co-host Jim Miller on SiriusXM NFL Radio, Bills strong safety George Wilson didn't just proclaim that Smith...
The New York Jets transformed their indoor field house into a media center for the first time today to accommodate plague of media expected to meet the team's newest "backup" quarterback— Tim Tebow.
Tebow's press conference was expected to be his introduction to the rabid New York press corps but, instead of a media crush, it ended up sounding like a group massage...
Wherever Tim Tebow goes, the buzz will follow. As far as backup quarterbacks are concerned, Tebow is a solid option. From that standpoint, you can’t blame the Jets for bringing him in despite the media frenzy that goes along with it. If Mark Sanchez struggles or gets hurt, it will be nice to have a guy who has proven he can win games as an NFL starter waiting to be called upon...
The Jets didn't make a splash this offseason, they created a tidal wave of controversy and excitement. Tim Tebow's arrival in New York will keep the Jets in the headlines, but will it keep them in playoff contention?
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan expects quarterback Tim Tebow to be far more involved than regular NFL backups, saying Sunday that the new recruit could play up to 20 snaps per game.
"Tim is going to be a major contributor to our football team," Ryan told the NFL Network.
"With the Wildcat specifically, the great thing is you don't know if we're going to run...
Being a Giants fan is pretty great these days. As usual all is quiet over at the Timex Center, just the way we like it. Of course you’ll have your usual suspects (that buddy of yours who thinks that they can do a better job then the GM) who will complain about Reese’s lack of activity, because that is what they do.
Oh yeah… and they won their fourth Super Bowl.
Tim Tebow was traded to the the New York Jets and whether we like it or not, the New York City tabloids have kicked off the Tim Tebow campaign. I am NOT ready for Timsanity, are you? It’s no secret that I am a huge J-E-T-S fan. My love affair with the Jets began in [...]
Tim Tebow's noon ET press conference is the biggest event in the history of sport. Move over Roman gladiators, move over Greek Olympians, move over Babe Ruth, Michael Jordan, and Tiger Woods. The New York Jets have their new situational backup quarterback!!!!
Tim Tebow arrived in New York today. The press conference was carried live on ESPN, ESPN2, and ESPNEWS. The press...

What’s up RaiderNation? You know, Old Timer always says, laughter is the best medicine. I know most of us were pretty surprised to hear that Manning decided to sign with the Broncos; but did you know the real reason? Well, I was able to find out how it all went down, well, OK, so this [...]
Wow, that was quick.
I’m guessing that Virginia based Washington fans really love them some Redskins football, as well as their personalized license plates. Won’t buddy look quite the fool should the Colts decide they like Robert Griffin III a touch more than Andrew Luck, and use the first overall pick on RG3?
Highly unlikely I know, but stranger things have happened (Tim...
