Woody Johnson: 'You Can Never Have Too Much Tebow'

New York Jets owner Woody Johnson has officially embraced backup quarterback Tim Tebow. Johnson, the National Finance Committee Co-Chair to Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, was interviewed at the Republican National Convention on CNBC. When asked if the key to curing the Jets' offensive problems lie in using the popular backup more or less, he threw his support behind Tebow.

I think you can never have too much Tebow, but I think it's more than just that. It's getting all the players -- the offensive line and everything coordinated (so) you can establish a good running attack . . . and also have our receivers healthy and ready to participate and contribute to the effort. It's a lot of timing and teamwork that we need

Tebow, along with most of the Jets' starters, likely won't play in the Jets' preseason finale against the Philadelphia Eages on Thursday night.
