There are any number of reasons to watch Thursday night's matchup between the Jets and Broncos: will Tim Tebow win for the fourth time in five starts? Will Rex Ryan unleash the 46 Defense on Denver's new(old)-fangled read-option? Will Darrelle Revis fall asleep on the field?

Enquiring minds want to know and all that. If you don't find any of this compelling, there's this very hard-hitting news angle: Jessie James will be performing during halftime. No, not that James. Or that one.

This one. (It's a MySpace page! How cute.)

You know, the country music singer who also happens to be dating Tim Tebow's favorite target: Denver wide receiver Eric Decker. (He caught one of Tebow's two passes last week -- a 56-yard touchdown strike, no less -- and he was targeted on two or three other occasions.It immediately reminded us of Montana and Rice, too.)

Decker was asked Wednesday about the halftime show.

"Who's the halftime entertainer? Some lady, a beautiful girl?" he asked, according to the Associated Press. "I'm excited. I wish I could sneak out, but don't tell Coach Fox. I've got somebody recording it for me.

"We were there yesterday for her last rehearsal, and it was fun seeing her out there. She's just getting back into it, she took a little time off to write her record and now she's getting back into it."

So that happened.

What won't happen, however, is a repeat performance of Bills wide receiver David Nelson's touchdown celebration last week in Dallas. He hugged Cowboys cheerleader Kelsi Reich and then presented here with the football. Nelson and Reich are dating (no word on if they have a MySpace page).

"She's going to be up in one of those suites," Decker explained of James. "So, I'm not climbing the wall and trekking up there. Maybe I'll throw it to her."

Or you could have Tebow deliver it.

Better yet: if things really get serious, have Tebow propose for you. No, seriously: 


From the YouTube description (March 2010): "This is Tim Tebow helping Ian Lis propose to his new fiance Sarah Springer... Tebow had the ring for 45 minutes waiting for the couple to come up and take a photo with him and his Heisman Trophy. He was more than happy to help make the occasion one they will never forget." 

Yep, that's how Tebow rolls.

After Revis has gotten his third or fourth pick maybe he can get someone off his posse to give her a ball . I doubt one of the two completions Tebow has will come to Eric Decker this week .

Haha Tebow is a pretty cool guy.  He gets way too much hate.  Him and Romo both.  Look, get on the guy for not being a good football player.  But getting on a guy for his faith or for helping other people?  Fuck you.  Man I hate the Lions, I really hope they lose all their remaining games, and in fact get blown out in all of them.

Without Tebow helping, there is no way that dweeb gets that girl to marry him.
