FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — New York Jets owner Woody Johnson is disappointed by his team’s performance, saying he “didn’t sign up for a 3-6 season,” and insists he didn’t bring in Tim Tebow just to sell tickets.
Johnson would not comment Thursday on the immediate futures of coach Rex Ryan or general manager Mike Tannenbaum, saying it’s his policy not to address those things during the season. But the owner made it clear he expects more from his team, which is heading to St. Louis on a three-game losing streak.
There has been some speculation that Johnson was solely behind the Tebow deal in March, hoping to boost sales of personal seat licenses. Johnson called it a “phony” story, and insisted “my job — 1, 2 and 3 — is to win games.”
