New York Jets owner Woody Johnson probably knows about all the drama that has been going on with his team this season. Johnson still has confidence in head coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum, but overall he’s not exactly impressed with his team this season.
In fact, he’s disappointed.
“I didn’t sign up for a 3-6 season,” Johnson said, according to ESPN New York. “We haven’t had one of these in a while. I’m not happy about it, yet I’m optimistic that some of these things can be corrected.”
Many have been assuming that the Jets’ main purpose of trading for Tim Tebow was to sell tickets and get fans in the stands. So far, Tebow has been a huge distraction for the team. Tannenbaum tried to clear these suspicions up.
“This, I really want to clear up,” he said. “You guys have been accusing me, this phony story of me being more concerned with PSLs or cash or something else. My job – one, two and three — is to win games. That’s why I got into this to begin with. It’s to win games. … It’s not to sell PSLs or to sell hot dogs.”
Johnson also talked about the latest reports of some players on the Jets saying that Tebow is “terrible.”
“If somebody’s anonymous, who is it?” Johnson said, as an anonymous Jets defensive player said that negative things about Tebow in an interview with the New York Daily News. “It’s just something out of thin air, essentially.”
For the Jets, the season continues to get just worse and worse. It’s just been a big old soap opera.

LaDainian Tomlinson said Wednesday that he thinks he knows the identities of at least two of the Jets players who anonymously savaged Tim Tebow.
On Wednesday, members of the New York Jets locker room semi-shocked the world with their shots against backup quarterback Tim Tebow.
Since that initial salvo, various members of the team (including Tebow) have weighed in on the matter but nobody’s words seem to feel as honest as running back Shonn Greene’s.

I am pretty sure I lost a bet earlier this season when I predicted Mark Sanchez would be benched by Week 10.
At the start of the 2012 season, things were looking okay for the Jets. All they really needed to focus on is getting through a tough first half, fix mistakes during the bye, and storm through a much easier second-half schedule.
But, the Jets did not do what they needed to...
Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots. After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez...
In the midst of a train wreck season, the 3-6 New York Jets are proving what basically everyone was saying when they traded for Tim Tebow in the offseason - it will become a distraction.
And that big distraction reared it's ugly head again this week with anonymous players criticizing Tebow.
GM Mike Tannenbuam is the guy that pulled the trigger on the trade, and just as Rex...
The horrid play of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez along with the team's 3-6 record has some fans and pundits calling for the Jets to finally make the move and insert Tim Tebow as starting quarterback.
That might be a popular decision among the masses outside of Rex Ryan's tear-filled locker room, but inside, Tebow has anything but the support of his Gang Green teammates....
Per a report from CNN’s Sports Illustrated, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks the player(s) who called Tim Tebow “terrible” are “a cowardly thing.” Ryans comments are in response to an earlier report of over a dozen Jets players and members of the organization anonymously criticizing Tebow. Ryan is absolutely right; if you want to call Tebow terrible, be like the...
The New York jets quarterback controversy took yet another interesting twist this week when many current players said that they had absolutely no faith or confidence in Tim Tebow, opting rather to stick with mark Sanchez as the team’s starting QB going forward. As bad as Sanchez has been throughout the entire 2012 NFL season, it says something when the Jets do not even support...

The circus that is the New York Jets continues to roll on as game time approaches Sunday. The other day was “terrible Wednesday,” as it was chronicled that there were anonymous Jets players ripping backup quarterback Tim Tebow and calling him “terrible.”
By mid-afternoon, head coach Rex Ryan had entered the fray, saying whoever made the remark...
Hyperbolic headline aside, Matt Slauson isn’t actually a hero. In fact, after the dirty block that he put on Brian Cushing that ended the Texans linebacker’s season earlier this year, he might actually be an asshole. However, I nominate Matt Slauson for BESTEST JERKYFACE EVER for being the one teammate willing to go on the record bashing Tim Tebow to the New York Daily News....
(Eds: Corrects Keller's first name to Dustin in seventh paragraph. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Jets coach Rex Ryan is so competitive that he'd play Satan at quarterback if he was convinced the move would help his team win.
But for some reason, he's drawn the line at Tim Tebow.
On any other team, with any other backup waiting in the wings, there...
Another day, another Tim Tebow detractor.
Only this time it's Jets' running back Shonn Greene who told a report it was time for change.
"Something's got to change," Jets running back Shonn Greene told Yahoo! Sports. "When you get to the point where you're 3-6, and losing and losing, a couple of guys are like, 'Oh, what would happen [if Tebow played...
Neither the Jets nor the Rams have been impressive of late. It’s been over a month since either team has earned a win. On paper, both teams leave a lot to be desired but there are few factors that will sway the odds in the Rams’ favor when New York travels to St. Louis. Here are my three bold predictions for the game.1. The Jets’ will help St. Louis get an easy win.On the stat...
It’s that time of year again, when Tim Tebow finds a way into the national spotlight, despite harsh criticism from his skeptics. The Jets backup quarterback hasn’t played much this season and yet has still managed to make the back […]
