08:36 AM ET 05.02 | Believe it or not, Rex Ryan is bullish on his Gang Green. [Ryan] finally got his first look at Tim Tebow on the practice field. The New York Jets' coach said Tebow looks "outstanding" in limited drills. "Same thing with Mark (Sanchez)," Ryan said Tuesday night at a charity event, quickly including his starting quarterback in the conversation. ... Ryan mocked critics that panned the Jets' draft, saying that Tebow, whom they acquired for a fourth-round pick, should be included when evaluating the overall draft. "Everybody put everybody (in our division) ahead of us, which I think it hilarious, but I think we had a heck of a draft," Ryan said. "And when you put Tim Tebow in there as a fourth-round pick, it looks even better."

I spoke too soon. The Tebow thread. I want Rex to comment on Favre being subpoenaed to testify in the team masseuse firings.

Ryan doesn't mock anyone....he just thinks he does....he's laughing along with the crowd because he doesn't realize that the crowd is laughing AT him....

It doesn't bode well for Tebow when your drafted in the first round by the Broncos and evaluated as a fourth round pick by Rex.

So, this year he's got to be really excited to have two sub-par quarterbacks instead of just one.

Still talking smack with nothing to show for it. I look forward to watching the implosion this season.

Tebow looked outstanding during limited drills, was he out standing watching his passes flutter to the ground? The Jets still suck. (At least Ryan didn't predict them to win the Super Bowl )

Speaking of which, I'm a little disappointed we didn't get a thread on that today.

You'd think that a Favre thread would outweigh the Bengals draft, Vikings stadium, or Welker 2.0. At least based on history.

Breaking things down:

McDaniels (Broncos) drafted Tebow around 24 overall.

Ryan (Jets) trade a 4th round pick to Broncos for Tebow.

1st round pick evaluated as a 4th round pick.

if you are going to harp on someone else's spelling, shouldn't you make an attempt to get it right in your own comment? Or does that not mane sense?

Where's the hate in that statement?

It disparaged Tebow, apparently.
