Barack Obama is a huge sports fan, he is known for it. If you are talking with the president, knowing that he is a sports fan, the Tebow situation would be one to ask him about. I know if I were talking to him about sports, I would ask him what he thinks. He’s a sports fan, he is giving an opinion.

That is all it is, an opinion.

Same with Boomer Esaison. Yes, he is paid to speak from behind a microphone. He is giving an opinion. Sometimes these guys give extreme opinions, for the sole person of gaining listeners. So, he will say something that is “out there”, just to get fan reactions. But, whatever he is doing…

All it is, is an opinion.

Damien Woody gave an idea on the radio that the Jets should sign Terell Owens. I know, I know. We all think of that idea and say “What?” I agree, there is no reason for the Jets to even think about signing this guy.

But that is Woody’s opinion, and he is entitled.

That is all it is. An opinion.

    Although I am still concerned about our offense right now, ironically it has nothinig to do with Tebow, it has to do with ouu WRs. Do I wish that they went out and got a veteran back up for the team? Yes definitely. But I also think that Tebow can be an asset to this team, as long as he is used the right way and not when the fans or the media pressure Rex in to making changes.
    Boomer I think made some valid points, but I think he went extreme when he said to cut Tebow. Honestly from day one I have not like the trade. But I am hoping that Sporano and Rex can make Tebow a weapon on the team. I know that the jury is still out on what kind of coach Sporano could be. And of course last season brough Rex down to earth.
    I tweeted Boomer this morning saying that I respected him as a player. he took a beaten while here. nd kept playing. But I also added he had no success here and that the Eric Allen 98 yard INT keeps giving me nightmares. A few moments later Boomer mentioned that on the air and said that it gave him nightmares also. He tnen retweeted back to me saying the same thing.
    Boomer is not a glory hog on the air but I think he knew that he would stir the pot with his remarks. My only beef is you csan’t keep saying that Jet Camp is a circus, when in fact it is the medioa that is making it a circus.
