The Other Paper:
One night after walking the red carpet with A-listers at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, Tim Tebow was spotted downing red meat with his O-line at a Manhattan steak house along with New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and Mark Sanchez.
Although Sanchez— the Jets starting quarterback— and Tebow, who will be competing with him for playing time this season, have publicly stated that they are "friends," the Tuesday night dinner was the first time they have ever been spotted together socially.
I wonder if there was a scramble for the shaker every time one of the other Jets players asked either of them to "pass the salt."
The competing quarterbacks dined for three hours with the owner, his brother Christopher Johnson and several teammates including offensive linemen Nick Mangold, Brandon Moore along with D'Brickshaw Ferguson and David Harris at the Meatpacking District hotspot Abe & Arthur's.
Witnesses claimed things between the two QB's seemed "pretty harmonious."
It was the first time Tebow and Sanchez both dined with the team owner.

It’s official: Tim Tebow’s allegiance now lies with New York. The new Jets quarterback told the media on Thursday that he changed his dog’s name from Bronco to Bronx after being traded.
Tebow got the pooch — a Rhodesian Ridgeback — in October 2010. He seemed to be sucking up to the local crowd by naming his pup Bronco back then. He chose “Bronx” as the new name for...
DOGGONE CONFUSED DOG
Given that he's now a member of the New York Jets, Tebow apparently felt owning a dog named Bronco was not appropriate any longer, so he's changing the dog's name to Bronx.
Tim Tebow has fallen completely in love with his new home after being traded to New York, and his latest gesture all but solidifies how excited the signal caller is to be suiting up for the Jets this season. The New York Post's Bart Hubbuch tweeted an interesting fact about Tebow regarding the name of his dog after the QB found out that he was departing from his former team,...
While staff writer Chris Gross has been spending his time in the film room breaking down the New York Jets draft picks, I have spent the bulk of the my time in the film room going back through Mark Sanchez’s first three years as a NFL quarterback. There is no reason to sugarcoat the reality, this is a make or break year for Sanchez. There isn’t a backup quarterback in the NFL...
Tim Tebow knows how to play to the Jets fans, doesn’t he?
I don’t understand why Tebow is bothering to change his dog’s name from Bronco to Bronx (Ed. note: Bronco is a much better name for a dog if you ask me) other than the obvious, but if you’re going to go ahead and give your pet a new moniker, shouldn’t it have been Swampy or Cesspool or even Jersey, seeing that the...
If Tim Tebow truly is heading into Jets training camp with the goal of becoming the starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez does not see it happening. The Jets owners and coaches have made it clear that Sanchez is their starter, but they also say they intend to use Tebow in a number of different packages and that he will in some way impact the offense. Sanchez agrees that Tebow will be...
Tebowmania is taking over New York, and not even canines are safe. In an attempt to fully embrace his new team, Tim Tebow is changing his dog’s name to “Bronx.” Tebow got the Rodesian Ridgeback in 2010, during his rookie season and named him “Bronco” after the franchise. After acquiring Peyton Manning in the off season, the Denver Broncos traded Tebow for a four...
Tim Tebow says he has worked exclusively at quarterback as Mark Sanchez's backup during the early portion of the New York Jets' offseason program, and is ''just trying to learn the offense.''
Coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano have said Tebow, acquired from Denver in March, could have extensive playing time for the Jets in various roles...

Apparently Tim Tebow could not deal with the psychological trauma of having his identity being ripped away by his master, so he took it out on his dog in similar fashion.
Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends.
May is typically a quiet month in NFL circles, but for the Jets, the attention surrounding Tim Tebow made life at their Florham Park facility feel like they were prepping for a playoff game. On Thursday the locker room was open to the media for the first time during the team's voluntary offseason workouts, and more than...
Jets backup quarterback and man-about-town Tim Tebow will be the subject of a special to air on E! Entertainment Television later this summer. Because if there’s one athlete the public needs to find out more intimate details about, should any exist, it’s Tebow (Ed. note: sarcasm is fun!).
Scant details are available as to what the 30-minute show will be about, but I can’t...
The New York Rangers have a Game 7 in Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Andy Pettitte's pitching his first game in pinstripes since 2010 on Sunday, and J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon reported that his bank had $2 billion in trading losses.
And what was everyone talking about in New York City on Thursday?
Tim Tebow's dog's name.
In an interview session...
Unfortunately for those of us who love great television, the New York Jets have reportedly turned down a chance to reprise their role at the center of HBO’s training camp documentary show “Hard Knocks.” I’ll give you a moment to weep silently to yourselves.
Having the Jets on “Hard Knocks” this summer would have been a gift from God. The last time Rex Ryan’s team was...
