Mara tweaks Jets -- again
By Rich Cimini
CORTLAND, N.Y. -- There he goes again.
Giants owner John Mara, who seems to be obsessed with this whole Tim Tebow thing, took a jab at the Jets during an interview Wednesday on ESPN New York 98.7 FM. Mara was asked about Jerry Jones' boast that the Dallas Cowboys would "beat the Giants' ass," and he responded with some comic relief -- at the Jets' expense.
"That's the first time I've heard that comment," he said. "I've been so caught up in the Tebow coverage, I haven't had time for anything else."
ESPN has been camping out with the Jets this week, providing in-depth coverage from the morning practice sessions.
This marked the second time since the Tebow trade that Mara tweaked the Jets. At the NFL meetings in March, on the eve of Tebow's mega-introductory news conference in Florham Park, N.J., Mara was asked if New York is big enough for the defending Super Bowl champions and Tebow.
"I don't know," he said, "but the David Carr press conference will be tomorrow afternoon, too."
