Tim Tebow had one of his best days of training camp, throwing two long touchdown passes in practice as the New York Jets had their final on-field preparations for their preseason opener at Cincinnati.
Coach Rex Ryan says quarterback Mark Sanchez and the rest of the starters will play ''a quarter or so,'' while Tebow could play about two quarters against the Bengals on Friday night.
Tebow received two snaps with the first-team offense during 11-on-11 drills, something he recalled doing earlier in camp, and hit Patrick Turner for a pretty 60-yard touchdown against the same type of defensive call on which he beat New York on a game-winning TD run last season in Denver. In 7-on-7 drills, Tebow lofted a nice 50-yard pass to Jeff Cumberland for a score.

This week the New York Jets were their own worst enemy, getting involved in pushing and shoving matches several times during practice. For backup quarterback Tim Tebow, Friday night's preseason contest is about building in the right direction.
New York Jets owner Woody Johnson says he is a bit surprised by the ''enormity of the coverage'' backup quarterback Tim Tebow has brought to his team.
Johnson says Tuesday during the team's training camp practice that he knew there would be an increase in the amount of media interest after the Jets acquired Tebow from Denver in March, but ''even by our...
As you could certainly guess, nothing good can come from the intersection of Tim Tebow and Carly Rae Jepsen. Combine two overexposed elements and you get a Jets fan holding a sign that is asking Tebow out. I’m not sure how else the sign could be interpreted.
This leads me to wonder which possible scenario is preferable: that the guy with the sign is actually gay, which would...
