Too much Tebow? Impossible, says Jets owner.

Impossible, says New York Jets owner Woody Johnson. (At last, Skip Bayless has company.)

Taking time out from raising money for Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan at the Republican National Convention, Johnson was asked by CNBC’s Carlos Quintanilla whether he’d like to see “more Tebow or less Tebow” and replied: “I think you can never have too much Tebow.”

Quintanilla pointed out that touchdowns would be nice, too. The Jets have none in three preseason games — they’re the first team in 35 years that can say that — and Johnson joked (we think) that “at least well, we're consistent. You can say that. You can say we're consistent.”

They’ll have one last preseason chance tonight in a game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Johnson went on to say that he had confidence in offensive coordinator Tony Sparano and that the team is more than just Tebow.

“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,” Johnson said. “It's a lot of timing and teamwork that we need.”
