Tune in for Tebow time at noon ET on PFT Live

Tebow's New York Jets shirts are put up for display in New York Reuters

The New York Jets will officially introduce quarterback Tim Tebow at 12:00 p.m. ET Monday, five days after trading for him (twice) and then having the agreement further delayed due to some “thou shalts” and “thou shalt nots” in his contract that needed to be ironed out.

But the deal is now done and you’ll be able to see and hear the entire press conference (or as much of it as we show until we get bored) on Monday’s edition of PFT Live.

So why a press conference for a backup quarterback?  Because this is no ordinary backup quarterback — both in name and in expected duties.  Coach Rex Ryan said Sunday that Tebow will be on the field for up to 20 snaps per game.  For the rest of the snaps, he’ll be a constant subject of attention and discussion and scrutiny.

So, basically, it’ll be no different when games are occurring than it is when games aren’t occurring.

Meanwhile, the current bullies of Broadway have been taking some shots at the Jets’ latest attempt to get noticed for something other than competing for championships.  On Sunday, Giants co-owner John Mara was asked whether New York is big enough for both the Giants and Tebow.

“I don’t know,” Mara said, via Gary Myers of the New York Daily News. “But the David Carr press conference will be tomorrow afternoon, too.”

Ryan resisted his instinct to fire back, for a change.  “When you win a Super Bowl, you can say anything you want because they are the world champions,” Ryan said. “That’s all fine and dandy.  To the young man, he’s not going out there trying to get the attention.  The attention follows him.”

But from the Jets’ perspective, they acquired Tebow knowing that the attention would follow Tebow to New York.  And that’s definitely “fine and dandy” with the Jets.

    Tebow will be running the spread option in NY by week 3. Not because he is so good , but because Sanchez is that bad

    He is the most hype covered quarterback in the league and does his body of work merit it? He has overshadowed a two time SuperBowl winning QB and a QB who has lead his team to two AFC championships. I don’t get it.

    Mark Sanchez is a wounded animal and Tebow smells blood.

  4. clownsfan says: Mar 26, 2012 9:18 AM

    Nothin’ but a bunch b!tches.

  5. spedman24 says: Mar 26, 2012 9:19 AM

    the jets have confirmed none of the jets coaches or front office members will be at the presser

  6. thebigkahuna23 says: Mar 26, 2012 9:22 AM

    Only the Jets would pull for a move like this one.

    Did you see what happened in Denver last year? In case you missed it Tebow got Kyle Orton booted off the roster due to fan outcry.

    So let’s see, herrrrrrm, New York. Crazy fans, check. Quarterback who hasn’t won over the fans or his teammates, check. Yep, the Tebow storm is a’ comin’

    Can you smell it? It’s the unmistakeable odor that comes from desperation and fear. And no amount of PR spin (or Old Spice) is going to change that.

    Tannenbaum and Ryan know they have one more year to produce results. Another season that implodes like last years and they both have a one way ticket marked to the big adios. They know it and we know it-which is why it’s so much fun to watch them sweat.

    Stephen Ross is having his 2nd annual Tim Tebow day when the Jets play in Miami.

    The Jets are like a high school girl that constantly needs attention whtehr its good or bad. Its pretty pathetic

    Good lord

    Another day and another PFT cheap shot at Jets. Too bad their skin isn’t thick enough to allow a fraction of what they dish out to return to their man loved Pats. Here’s another post destined for their cyber trash can.

    Poor Sanchez. It’s really funny watching this no-ring circus. But you have to feel sorry for Mark, who seems a decent sort. It’s like the Jets are constantly plotting to destroy him. Yeah, funny … but sad too.

  13. dayumyou says: Mar 26, 2012 9:41 AM

    Um no!!!

  14. johanneschimpo says: Mar 26, 2012 9:41 AM

    No thanks.

    I would rather tune in for the Caleb Hanie presser.

    What, they aren’t having one for him?

    Makes sense since normally you don’t hold a press conference for a SECOND STRING QB.

    So glad NY has to deal with this JOKE of a situation now.

    @broncfanor:

    My sentiments exactly well said

    Has David Carr been reached for comment?

    All backup QB kidding aside, what’s really the point of Caleb Hanie backing up Manning???

    Based on what I saw out of Hanie in Chicago ( and Curtis Painter in Indy for that matter) last season, if Manning goes down, you’re better off having Willis Mcgahee line up as QB in the wildcat and running every down than having that guy.

  19. capslockkey says: Mar 26, 2012 11:06 AM

    Backup QB, sure. Did they hold a press conference for Drew Stanton after they signed him?

    The fact that Orton was 12-21 in Denver (including 4-14 that last two seasons) didn’t do much to help his case….

  21. buffalomafia says: Mar 26, 2012 11:13 AM

    First of all they play in NJ not NY!

    Tebow is overrated!

  22. flsharkvictim says: Mar 26, 2012 11:14 AM

    I want more of Stehaine A Smith and Skip Bayles!
    Those two guys are priceless!!!

  23. hendawg21 says: Mar 26, 2012 11:17 AM

    Since when does trading for a back up QB/QB who has done nothing relevent i.e. won a Super Bowl deserve a press conference to announce his arrival??? Only in NY…guess Rex the Foot Man Ryan feels he may need god on his side to accomplish his mission of winning a Super Bowl…

    Trust me Rex the addition of Father Tiny Tim Tebow will not get you and the Jets any closer than you’ve been…

  24. bspurloc says: Mar 26, 2012 11:22 AM

    .
    difference is… David Carr is the worst QB ever and has 2 super bowl rings….
    so even worse david car > Peyton Manning

  25. sean6886 says: Mar 26, 2012 11:49 AM

    I think what everyone forgets here is not only did the media hype Tebow but the Denver fans did as well. They chanted for Tebow-win or lose. They put up the billboard demanding he start.

    While NY fans might chant for him if Sanchez has a bad game, once Tebow has a bad game, the fans will turn on him as well. The Denver fans were in a cult like love for Tebow. But Idon’t see that happening in NY. So far, all the attention about Tebow coming to NY has been manufactured by the media and the fan reaction has been very mixed but mostly WTF?.

    Tebow is not an NFL QB. If you watch the games he started in last year, not all of those comebacks can be credited to him and the game NY lost to Denver was due to Sanchez, not Tebow.

    Tebow is also not as humble as he likes to come off and the Jets players, with all of their egos, will begin to mouth off, just like last year.

    I think this experiment may backfire. I think there’s too much hype, too many egos, the 50/50 thing might work for a while but I think a 2 QB system is inconsistent and hard for teams to find a rythem.

    As a Jet fan, WTF?
