08:02 AM ET 07.16 | This year, the Jets, who in 2010 brought "Hard Knocks" to Cortland, N.Y., are bringing another kind of show to town in 2012: Tebowmania. The town thought the interest from ["Hard Knocks"] was big, but now, with the Jets' new back-up quarterback and evangelical Christian icon Tim Tebow coming, the expectations are different, but may be bigger. "A couple months ago, I got a call from a church group, then another and I thought it was interesting, not groups we normally get calls from," said Jim Dempsey of the Cortland County Convention and Visitors Bureau. "Right now, we have no way of knowing how many more groups will come because of Tim Tebow. But we expect a lot."

I guess the J-E-T-S don't normally court those segments of society?

It should be interesting. When the Jets come to camp in Florham Park, NJ, real close to where I live, I will be there.

And by the way, that whole "The Jets suck" thing on every Jets thread is so lame.

The Courtland County Bar and Restaurant Owners' Association is bracing for a summer of Bible-thumping teetotalers who would drive them out of business were it not for the annual Rex Ryan windfall profits.

It does, however, put the "Truth" in "Truth and Rumors."

I am a lifelong Jets fan. Let's say the Bible thumper crowd is going to stand out.

Hey Debbie - If I get on the Pats threads and point out that Belechek is a cheater, what that also add some truth T & R? What if I did it on every Pats thread for years? Wouldn't that be kind of stupid?

Good Morning Boys, Maybe The Jets should add a Chaple to their training Ficility on one Side and a Boxing Ring on the other side, they Team that Prays Together Stays Together!!!

If the Jets want to be taken seriously, they'd bring real football players into training camp, not clip board holding millionaires who attract evangelical nut jobs, as opposed to football fans.

Are you seriously suggesting that Tim Tebow doesn't have any fans?

He's not a statistically good quarterback, but Tim Tebow is a real football player. He puts his body on the line every play. He is a leader who gets his teammates to play better. He'll still be a millionaire quarterback at the end of the season, but he won't be the one holding the clipboard.
