Mets OF Michael Conforto says he's seen improvement from minor league OF Tim Tebow, currently playing with High-A St. Lucie.

"I actually was down in high-A for a rehab assignment, and I played with him. One thing I'll say about him is he always takes good at-bats," Conforto said, according to Brett Bodner of the NY Daily News. "He's got a good eye, he doesn't chase, and I think really that's half the battle in the game of baseball as far as being a good hitter."

"He's still got a long way to go, but I think I've seen a lot of improvement out of him. From spring to the one day I got to see him when I went down on Thursday (July 6), he looks like a much better player already," Conforto said. "If he just keeps getting better, who knows?"

Mets minor-league OF and former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow had two hits Wednesday against the Marlins, raising his Grapefruit League average to .214 during 14 at bats.

Tebow also made a leaping catch in right field, drawing praise from Marlins manager Don Mattingly.

"I feel like I'm improving," Tebow said, his right forearm bloodied from scraping the warning track. "I feel like I'm getting better every day, getting more and more comfortable, and also really enjoying it at the same time."

With players soon returning from the World Baseball Classic, and with games beginning in minor-league camp, Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday was most likely Tebow's final Grapefruit League game.

Mets minor league outfielder Tim Tebow reflected on his time with the Jets while meeting the media on Monday at Spring Training.

ESPN analyst Keith Law watched Mets OF Tim Tebow during this year's Arizona Fall League and left feeling the former NFL quarterback should never play baseball again.

"I think Tim Tebow should stick to announcing," Law said on an ESPN conference call. "He was the worst player I've ever seen in the 10 years I've been going to the Arizona Fall League"

The Mets announced in early January that Tebow would not be among the 13 minor leaguers invited to participate in this year's big league Spring Training.

Mets minor leaguer Tim Tebow considered sticking with football, but instead chose baseball to take on a new challenge, he told ESPN's 'First Take" on Tuesday.

"I wanted to do something I wanted to do, that would be fun for me, a challenge for me," Tebow told host Max Kellerman. "That's why I chose to pick up a baseball bat."

Tebow, who signed a $100,000 contract to join the Mets this past summer, hit .194 with a .296 OBP, no home runs, three doubles and 20 strikeouts in 19 games during October's Arizona Fall League.

"At a certain point, it's not about what other people want you to do it's about what you want to do," he reitterated to Kellerman, parroting a line he frequently used during his book tour last November. "It's your life, not everybody else's life. I could go play football at another position, but why settle. Life isn't about settling, life is about striving."

The Mets haven't decided whether OF Tim Tebow will be invited to play in big league games during Spring Training, GM Sandy Alderson said Tuesday.

"That's a decision we'll make some time in the near future," Alderson said, adding that there's "no benefit" to having him in big league camp.

Mets manager Terry Collins said earlier Tuesday that Tebow would play for the Mets during Grapefruit League games this spring, even if he's in minor-league camp

However, late last month, Tebow would not say if he plans to attend Spring Training.

The guerrilla-style media entity TmZ caught up with Giants' co-owner Steve Tisch as he was getting into his car in LA this weekend. Tisch believes that LB Aaron Curry could become a "game-changer" for the Giants. In an unfair question about Tim Tebow, Tisch responded by taking the high road....

From TmZ.com:

The New York Jets DESTROYED any chance Tim Tebow had to be a successful QB in the NFL ... this according to NY Giants co-owner Steve Tisch.

"I think him going from the Broncos to the Jets was not in anybody's best interest," Tisch told TMZ on his way out of Dan Tana's in L.A. Sunday night.

Adam Schefter is a hard-working NFL beat reporter, probably the best at what he does. Nothing goes down in this league without him knowing about it. His above tweet states the obvious on Tebow, and the unspoken about Cruz.

Tebow is a man without a position. He isn't an NFL QB, and it would be a mistake to try him at another position. The NFL is not the place for entry-level candidates. The Jets are going to have to release Tebow. It's sad, but almost everyone but the Jets saw this coming....

Woody Johnson and the rest of the NFL owners are in Phoenix this week for league meetings and when asked about the 2012 backup quarterback and his status with the Jets, Woody Johnson didn't give any direct answers on the matter according to Manish Mehta, "we?re looking at all possibilities with [Tebow]. We?ll see what the offseason [brings]."

I know it's seems silly, but I really think it comes down to trying to move him via trade to save cap space. ?Tebow is on the books for $2.6 million in 2013. ?Should they cut him, they save about a million dollars, should they trade him, they save most of that full cap figure. ?It doesn't seem like much, but when the Jets are pinching pennies with potential starters like OLB Antwan Barnes, then we have to expect that they are going to do everything they can to save all the cap space they can for the 2013 season.

But just because the Jets want to trade Tebow doesn't mean they will be able to do so. ?This meeting in Phoenix might represent one of the last best chances between now and the draft to move Tebow. ?The foregone conclusion is that there is zero chance that Tebow returns with the Jets in 2012. ?Based on the way Rex Ryan avoided (like the plague) playing #15 at quarterback, it's hard to imagine that they would bring him back if the team's coach doesn't think him competent to play his own position. ?Maybe the Jets will shock the world and have come up with plans to actually let him compete for the starting job in 2013, but it seems so far-fetched at this point. ?Sooner or later the team will cut him, but they sure are taking their time to do so.

There's been a lot of speculation about the release of Kevin Kolb by the Cardinals that he will most likely end up in New York. ?Kansas City would be closed to him, as Reid already got his man in Alex Smith a few weeks ago, so the Jets do logically represent a smart fit. ?Kolb returns to the coordinator he knows in Marty Morhinweg and the Jets round out their roster with a backup who already knows the system. ?A potential win-win.

Garrard has been told he'll have a chance to challenge for a starting job, but that's a tough one to believe, he's taken two years to get healthy, and hasn't played in the NFL for far too long for a 35 year old to jump into a new system with the Jets. ?Tim Tebow won't be with the team at some point soon ... from what we hear the Jets are doing their best to trade him to get the cap relief a trade would offer ... but it is obviously not going so well. ?McElroy's status with the team seems up in the air, but he might have made it tough to get a serious shot after not disclosing his concussion during the Chargers game. ?Mark Sanchez might make a focused run to retain his job and he seems like the one with the inside track on the starting job ... but Kolb would represent the best challenge to Sanchez that the Jets might be able to hastily muster on the cheap for the 2013 season.

Kolb had Larry Fitzgerald, but he didn't have much else. ?Kolb's terrible run in Arizona was rife with issues due to a porous offensive line that couldn't protect him, a backfield that spends more time in the shop than the street and not much else. ?According to Football Outsiders, the line ranked 26th in 2011 and 27th in 2012 in pass protection. ?Not easy for any QB. ?The Jets have historically ranked better at pass protection, but took a huge statistical dip in their protection stats after the Chargers game in which McElroy should not have been playing after his concussion. ?Also, Mark Sanchez didn't do his line any favors by his sheer refusal to get rid of the ball quickly in the Sparano NOffense.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ? The affable, somewhat sarcastic, always approachable Nick Bellore is a marked man in the Jets locker room.

Bellore and his beard

For 22 days now, the Jets linebacker has been the target of his teammates as part of the ?No Shave November? fad as he has been growing a beard and has refused to touch his burgeoning growth. Now itchy and thick, Bellore needs to endure a little more than a week before he can think about trimming let alone shaving the beard. It is a burden he feels he carries for the Jets team because of the sheer awesomeness of his facial hair.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. ? On a day where Tim Tebow and anonymous quotes were all the talk at the Jets facility, punter Robert Malone somehow squeezed out a rare compliment from head coach Rex Ryan on Wednesday afternoon. The irony is that he has Tebow to thank for it.

Ryan was talking about the impact that Tebow has had on his team this season and mentioned the once scoffed at idea of his role on special teams as a personal punt protector. Tebow?s impact has been felt on special teams, including most recently in Week 6 when the Jets faked a punt and he tossed to linebacker Nick Bellore for a 23-yard gain and a first down. It was a major moment in what turned out to be a Jets blowout win over the Colts.

But what?s not been talked about is the impact that Tebow?s presence is having on Robert Malone?s ability to punt.

"I would say he would have to go to church, Temple -- wherever he goes -- find a nice girl," said Taylor, who added some more colorful language. "I mean marry her if he has to ... but he's got to get some of that pressure off."
Former Giants QB Phil Simms and Cris Collinsworth laughed at Taylor's remarks. Simms added:

How serious are the Jets about using Tim Tebow as their personal punt protector this season? ?Sounds like it's pretty serious according to the article Rich Cimini wrote for ESPN New York a few days back. ?In it, Cimini details how the team came up with the role for the backup quarterback and what it means for him to play special teams in such a capacity.

The Jets have had some quality protectors in past years but as Cimini notes, there's one big concern about using a guy like Tebow in such a role for the Jets.

Critics of the Tebow plan will argue that the Jets are sacrificing coverage ability by using a player with no experience as a tackler. Tebow, used extensively in the preseason, didn't make a single tackle.

Peter King is making his training camp run, and has some thoughts about the Jets offense this season. ?While he touches a number of topics, King shares his impressions of his conversation with Mark Sanchez regarding Tim Tebow and how he feels about the backup soaking up some first team snaps in game situations. ?Sanchez told King he implicitly trusts Tony Sparano to know when to utilize whom, and then King gives his impressions of the situation.

In other words, the Jets are going to put Tebow in the game, on offense and on special teams, regularly. They've been careful not to ruffle Sanchez's feelings about it, apparently even letting him know what the plan is, and Sanchez, who has a very good relationship with the new offensive coordinator, feels Sparano's not going to trample on him to make Tebow a part of the offense. It's a tight rope walk, and who knows what Sanchez really is feeling if part of the plan is subbing Tebow for Sanchez when the Jets get inside the opponents' 5-yard line, for instance.

Giants' DE Osi Umenyiora is not blind. Like the rest of us, he sees the rise in arrests of NFL players and can't for the life of him understand the spike - especially in the day-and-age of Roger Goodell, who deals with such infractions both swiftly and harshly.

"It?s just ridiculous,? Umenyiora said at an event in midtown today as per Art Stapleton of the Record. ?People need to be more focused and more grateful for what it is that they have. Coming from where I came from [during his trip to Nigeria earlier this month] and seeing what I saw, all that poverty, people who have nothing, they would cut off both their legs to be given the opportunity that these people have. To be messing around like that is real unfortunate.?

A lot of attention has been paid to the the quarterback position this off-season, with the concerns at right tackle and the revolving door at wide receiver also taking their turn in the spotlight. But interestingly enough, there is another element to the Jets 2012 offense that has not received nearly enough consideration, and it is one that could ultimately prove to be the most significant: The running game.

Head coach Rex Ryan and new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano have promised to return to the tough, physical, smash-mouth style of football that the Jets found success with in Rex's first two years as head coach. That's right. Ground and Pound is back.

This past Thursday marked the first day OTA's were open to the media and while there were many things to discuss, the thing I want to focus on is the "quarterback controversy" that is Tebow vs. Sanchez.

Tebow was picked twice in practice, once by Bart Scott then again by Yeremiah Bell on the next play, according to multiple sources. On the other hand, Sanchez had the play of the day with a 75 yard touchdown to Stephen Hill and had a good overall day. At the end of practice, some were making excuses for Tebow saying that he's bad in practice and to wait until the games actually start.

It is March. The Giants do not make much noise in March. Nor do they in April or any other month in which NFL games aren't played. They leave those months open for their co-tenants to have....and the Jets take full advantage of them....

The Giants are the NFL on-field champions while the Jets are hands-down the off-field champs. Whoever is running the publicity machine across the hall is a genius. The team has gone from one that was on the verge of falling apart to one of national interest again.

Tim Tebow is the most popular athlete in the world. He will be wearing green and representing the Jets all over the planet. He will sell for them. He will sell a lot, too. But what he's selling isn't football, it's just hype. The Jets don't sell steak, folks. They sell sizzle....
