We really shouldn't have thought about the football reasons at all. Tebow moves the needle. He makes money. This Jets regime is obsessed with raising its profile and owning the back page in New York. Mission accomplished.
Nicks' injury is a far more important football story when compared with how Tebow looked throwing passes in shorts and a T-shirt in the middle of May. But it wasn't the bigger story.
Some 6,971 words were devoted in the five papers to Tebow's first practice. Only 2,104 words were written about Nicks. That's what you call a blowout.
Tebow sells. That's why he's a New York Jet.
