Congratulations to Woody and the Jets for Backing Out of Hard Knocks

Time to take a moment and eat some crow regarding Woody Johnson.

It appears that the Jets finally made a good decision regarding “Hard Knocks” today. The reason that is coming out is that it is Tony Sparano’s first year, as they did the same thing in 2009, Rex’s first year. Whatever reason the Jets made the decision, they made the right one.

It shows me I was at least partially wrong about Woody.

The Jets clearly don’t need this. They have enough to deal with, between Tim Tebow, Santonio Holmes, and the rest of the soap opera that is the current state of our beloved Jets. They have enough problems, that we don’t need to see them amplified on TV.

A while back, I made some statements about Woody Johnson, and his motivations. Using the Tebow trade, and Woody’s interest in Hard Knocks, I stated that he was more interested in making money than the team. Today, Woody proved me wrong. Pulling out of the race, clearly is in the best interest of the team.

Woody and the Jets did the right thing. Kudos to him and the team, and I apologize for the previous statements I made.
