That's what one of the handful of T-shirts devoted to Tim Tebow proclaims in this quaint city in central New York.
It's a sentiment that's hard to argue with. It's been all Tebow, all the time at New York Jets camp and local business owners are cashing in more than ever. Fans have been flocking to the area since the Jets rolled into town on July 26 - many wanting to get a glimpse of the NFL's most popular backup quarterback.
Training camp drew about 41,000 fans to Cortland in 2010, and is expected to draw about 12,000 more people than it did two years ago. It could also result in a $5.8 million boost to the local economy.
BEST OF MAXIM
The Jets quarterback took Boomer Esiason's harsh critique, where he said Tim Tebow should be cut, in stride, saying, "I wish him nothing but the best in his announcing."
Tebow-mania, Jets training camp, Tebow Tebow Tebow…I think that’s all we hear now-a-days. One of the big questions for the New York Jets this upcoming season is: will Tim Tebow start a game for the Jets and if so, how many?
Well today, I will be explaining why phenom Tim Tebow will eventually start a game as QB for the New York Jets.

ON ONE KNEE
Not sure if this guy is on his way home from NY Jets training camp, but I think it is safe to assume he has more of an allegiance to Tim Tebow than anyone else. Note the stick alongside the “TEBOWIN” license plate, just in case anyone was confused about what it said. H/T Deadspin
Tim Tebow is a pretty mediocre quarterback, but he’s a hell of a football player. I thought Denver was nuts to draft him in the first round, as he wasn’t a good investment as a traditional drop back passer.
Even so, his competitiveness and athletic ability helped him lead the Broncos to some incredible victories.
That said, few teams wanted him after the Broncos jumped on the...
When has there ever been a backup that gets more attention than a starter does? I don’t know if there has ever been such a thing happening as it is in New York. The Jets acquired quarterback Tim Tebow from the Denver Broncos earlier this year, and has received more attention than starting quarterback, Mark [...]

I don’t think Tim Tebow is a very good quarterback, but I do think he is a good football player. It is just finding a role that suits him the best.
His quarterbacking skills are unorthodox, but he finds ways to win games even if they are ugly wins. Here is what Boomer Esiason had to say.
Boomer Esiason thinks the Jets are making a “major mistake” with Tim Tebow as the team’s...
Boomer And Carton In The Morning host and ex-New York Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason can reference his five years as a radio host, 14 years as a pro football player or 15 years as a television analyist when telling you what he thinks about current Jets back-up handsome Christian Tim Tebow, but why bother? He can cut to the chase and drop the only two Tebow talking points that matter...
Earlier today, former New York Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason said the Jets should cut quarterback Tim Tebow, during an airing of his show on WFAN in New York.
Tebow was asked what he thought about Esiason’s comments.
“Iâve heard nothing but great things about Mr. Esiason,” Tebow said, per NFL.com. “I wish him nothing but the best in his announcing. God bless...
Former New York Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason said that it was a big mistake for the Jets to trade for Tim Tebow and that he would get rid of him.
“I’m just telling you right now, I would (cut him), and I’ll tell you why I would,” Esiason said alongside Boomer & Carton radio partner Craig Carton, per WFAN. “It’s not in any way, shape or form — I think...
The United States has seen its fair share of sporting presidents, but never one who fills out March Madness brackets on ESPN. That's why it isn't surprising to find out that Barack Obama made an appearance on WNBS, a radio station out of Columbus, Ohio, on Friday morning to discuss all manner of sports topics. Among other things, we learned that the commander-in-chief sees...
On Monday morning, former New York Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason said that the Jets should cut Tim Tebow, while on his daily radio show with Chris Carton on WFAN New York.
Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News took a small swipe at Esiason on his Twitter feed this afternoon.
Tim Tebow is already the best left-handed quarterback the Jets have ever had. #nyj
