The source said once Tannenbaum came up with the idea, several members of the Jets organization tried to talk him out of the trade, saying Tebow was not an accurate passer. But Tannenbaum was not swayed.

    It is unclear how head coach Rex Ryan felt about the trade at the time. Publicly he always has said he supported it, but Tebow’s limited playing time makes that hard to believe.

    Wow, that is a revelation, the move starting with Tanny and convincing Woodward, and not the other way around! I did not have much respect for Tannenbaum's football 'knowledge' but if this is true it just tanked further.

    Sounds like Tannenbaum wrote himself a one-way ticket out of Florham Park with this brainstorm! Tanks God!

    Does anybody actually believe Woody was forced to do anything?

    I don't believe he was forced. He was "convinced" by Tanny to do the move.
