New York Jets owner Woody Johnson is spending his week at the Republican National Convention in Tampa and the subject of football just happened to come up.

Johnson was asked by CNBC if he would like to see more Tebow or less Tebow and he replied, "I think you can never have too much Tebow,"according to

Tebow, or anyone else on offense for that matter, has been nonexistent in the preseason. The Jets are the first team in 35 years not to score a touchdown in three preseason games. They also hope to break a 35 possession without reaching the end zone streak tonight in their preseason finale against the  Philadelphia Eagles.

"But I think it's more than just that. It's getting all the players … the offensive line and everything coordinated so you can establish a good running attack...and also have our receivers healthy and ready to participate and contribute to the effort," Johnson said. "It's a lot of timing and teamwork that we need."
