When the Jets made the deal to trade for Tim Tebow in the spring, the first thing that came to mind was Brett Favre.
Yep, remember that guy?
After the Giants won Super Bowl XLII over the Patriots in February of 2008, the Jets decided to make a very bold trade by trading for Favre, which captured every news media outlet and the attention of everyone surrounding the NFL.
It put the Giants under the radar, even as the defending champions.
Fast forward four years later, and the Giants have won another Super Bowl.
What do the Jets do? Trade for perhaps the biggest media hound in Tebow.
The Tebow circus has gotten so out of control, the media covered him running in the rain doing sprints with his shirt off. The picture above is proof of it.
Tebow is a backup quarterback, but because of who he is, his reputation and everything that goes with it, he's treated like a superstar.
And ever since the trade happened, Tebow and the Jets are all we hear about in New Jersey and New York.
Which again, puts the Giants under the radar as the defending champions.
You know what, I am glad Tebow has garnered all of the NFL's attention and gotten the spotlight.
I'll trade Super Bowl rings and trophies instead of media attention any day.
