Another interesting note is that, according to Sundquist, the Tebow trade was actually forced upon Woody by Tanny.

For a guy who make his living keeping secrets, he sure talks alot.
glad we didnt pick this guy, what a leaker... media would have loved him..
@LisaZimmerman: My sources told me it was Mike T's idea, but got quick buy-in from Woody. MT @TheRedzoneorg Report: Woody Johnson says Tebow not his call
Starting to make a lot of sense now, especially the way Tannenbaum left gracefully with nothing but thanks to Woody and the organization. Think about it, if Tebow was forced on Tanny and Tanny got fired for personnel reasons then he'd be a little pissed and say, "hey Woody, you wanted this guy and now you're firing me for the roster?"
I think we're finally getting the real story.
Two things i got from that:
-sundquist, if its true he told what the conversation consisted of, is acting extremely unprofessional here and hindering his prospects for future interviews (yeah i know, water finds its level given the situation). Dumb move.
-Belichek is better than Rex. Thanks, I had no idea.
I have a hard time believing Tanny forced anything on Woody.
But if it is true it confirms my belief that Tanny didn't know his elbow from his a$$ when it came to personnel.
It had to be Woody- the publicity stunt, their political views, and the fact that Tanny's gone but Tebow is still here.
