Running on fumes before passing out, the Jets traded for Tim Tebow. Win big, and instead of a Carnegie Deli or Ben's Best sandwich, he'll have a steak named for him.

After all, Broadway Joe Namath got his nickname, in part, from a New York steakhouse. Dry-aged Brett Favre wasn't around long enough. And Mark Sanchez, a USC guy, already has confessed his love for In-and-Out Burger in California.

So, one day, Tebow may earn his beef, definitely a T-bone (or Te-bown), perhaps with Two-point Conversion Sauce on the side. The Heisman Trophy winner was well on his way to getting Rocky Mountain oysters named for him before Tom Brady and the Patriots deep-fried the idea.

Tebow became available for fourth and sixth round draft picks after the Broncos signed Eli Manning's older brother to replace him. Sports Authority Field at Mile High becomes Peyton Place, and Tebow gets to duel Eli for backpage superiority on Broadway Joe's old turf.

It's enough to make you fall on one knee.
