If you really can never have too much Tim Tebow, the New York Jets are in store for a fun three years of not having too much Tebow.

At least, that's what Jets owner Woody Johnson said on CNBC Wednesday morning (hat tip to Bob Glauber of Newsday):

Jets owner Woody Johnson on CNBC, asked if Tim Tebow will remain with Jets beyond 2012: "Absolutely. He'll be with us for three years."

Tebow has played just 39 snaps since the start of the season, good for only 12.1 percent of the team's total, according to ProFootballFocus.com.

It was once believed his role could be as big as 20 snaps a game, but the Jets have remained devoted to him exclusively as a role player, a change of pace at quarterback. 

How long he remains the change-of-pace QB and not the starter remains to be seen and is dependent on the performance of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.

Speaking of Sanchez, I find it funny/odd/telling that Johnson hasn't given Sanchez such a vote of confidence.

Here are some more links and news from around the AFC East.

 

New England Patriots

Christopher Price of WEEI.com points out that the Patriots are not likely to use their no-huddle offense as much against the Seattle Seahawks as they did against the Denver Broncos.

Greg Bedard of The Boston Globe points out that the Patriots no-huddle offense was executed entirely with one-word calls at the line of scrimmage.

Bleacher Report Patriots featured columnist Oliver Thomas lists the five most disappointing Patriots players through five games.

 

New York Jets

Greg Hanlon of Capital New York says the Jets are playing like there's nothing to lose, and he points out that Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez's batted passes are a long-running trend. 

Ben Stockwell of Pro Football Focus says the pressure shouldn't be on Sanchez for his poor performance on Sunday.

 

Buffalo Bills

Mark Gaughan of The Buffalo News talked to Bills general manager Buddy Nix, who said the defense isn't playing with enough "intensity and urgency."

Joe Buscaglia of WGR 550 SportsRadio gives his review of the Bills offensive and defensive lines from Sunday's loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

According to Tim Graham of The Buffalo News, legendary Bills defensive end Bruce Smith says the Bills' current defensive line needs more time to jell as a unit.

 

Miami Dolphins

Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald writes that Dolphins offensive coordinator Mike Sherman thinks the quarterback position is the most improved position on offense since training camp.
