At the tail end of NFL Network’s First on the Field, Mike Lombardi dropped a factoid that could set everyone’s clock in New York to Tebow Time.
Lombardi said that 12,000 tickets to Monday night’s game between the Texans and the Jets were unsold as of Friday.
As Lombardi surmises, the struggles to fill the seats will make it more likely that Tebow will get a shot, at some point, to start at quarterback.
Meanwhile, that many unsold tickets could have triggered a local blackout of the game, unless the Jets bought up the balance at 34 cents on the dollar. If they did, it all happened quietly.
Now that the 12,000 (du)cats are out of the bag, it won’t stay quiet much longer.
