Rex Ryan knows that Tim Tebow isn't your average backup quarterback. But Ryan can't really understand Tebowmania until he experiences it from the inside. That didn't take long.
Ryan was at a restaurant in Baton Rouge, La., on Wednesday night before the LSU pro day. Shortly after the Tebow trade was finalized, two patrons at the restaurant "Tebowed" in front of Ryan.
âHeâll fit right in with the guys we already have,â Ryan said.
"Mark is our starting quarterback. Thereâs no doubt about it. Will we have some things for Tebow each week? Absolutely," Ryan said. âI look at it this way. Weâre incredibly fortunate to have a couple of quarterbacks with playoff wins. Obviously, both have been fairly successful."
Ryan spoke to Tebow a few times, and the former Broncos quarterback is excited to be a Jet.
âWhy wouldnât you be? Youâre coming to the New York Jets,â Ryan said.
Ryan might be the rare coach that is excited by the fact the circus is coming to town with Tebow.
