Buccaneers emerge as potential landing spot for Darrelle Revis

Mar 12, 2013

Certainly no strangers to creating headlines, the New York Jets managed to spark a buzz prior to the start of free agency by leaving the door open for a trade of star cornerback Darrelle Revis. With free agency now underway, multiple outlets have reported that the Jets already have a “good offer” on the table for Revis and and according to ProFootballTalk.com, that offer is coming from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. While the Jets would certainly like to retain Revis, arguably the most talented player on the entire roster, it doesn’t appear that the team is willing to do it at…

Report: Jets to part ways with offensive coordinator Tony Sparano

Dec 30, 2012

The New York Jets have suffered through one of their most disappointing seasons in recent memory and there is no lack of suspect on whom the blame could rightfully be placed. Head Coach Rex Ryan has been questioned for his handling of the team, general manager Mike Tannenbaum has received criticism for questionable roster moves and the Jets’ trio of young quarterbacks–Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy and Tim Tebow–has failed to produce a viable starter. However it appears that the first member of the organization to feel the wrath of owner Woody Johnson will be offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Johnson and…

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick still wants to start

Dec 22, 2012

As the 2012 season continues to wind to a close, it has become increasingly apparent that the Philadelphia Eagles and former starting quarterback Michael Vick are approaching a split. While Vick’s future beyond 2012 appears just as uncertain as that of the Eagles franchise, there should be no shortage of teams willing to show interest in the veteran quarterback, who has plenty of starting experience. After all, it was this very same premise that allowed Vick to earn an opportunity in Philadelphia just three and a half short years ago. However, while Vick was able to successfully raise himself from third-string project…

The New York Jets will be handcuffed as long as Mark Sanchez remains on the team

Dec 20, 2012

With the news that second-year quarterback Greg McElroy will take over the starting job for the New York Jets, it has become apparent that Mark Sanchez‘s is most likely done for the 2012 season. If recent reports are to be believed, his time as the leading man in the Big Apple (no, Tim Tebow, it’s not you) might just be over too. According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, the Jets will attempt to trade Sanchez during the upcoming offseason. The problem for New York may rest in their ability to find a willing trade partner. Sanchez is due…

Jets finally make a quarterback change, it’s now Greg McElroy’s turn

Dec 18, 2012

The New York Jets are finally making a quarterback change. Yet, it isn’t to Tim Tebow. The Jets announced on Tuesday that third-string quarterback Greg McElroy will replace starter Mark Sanchez for this week’s game against the San Diego Chargers. The decision comes a day after the Jets fell 14-10 to the Tennessee Titans. In that game, Sanchez completed just 46.4 percent of his passes, was picked off four times and lost one fumble. McElroy has appeared in one game for the Jets this season, a 7-6 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in Week 13. The second-year signal-caller out of Alabama has completed five…

Rex Ryan reluctant to name starting quarterback for Sunday, but it hardly even matters

Dec 3, 2012

The New York Jets might just have the least interesting quarterback controversy in the history of quarterback controversies. Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow or Greg McElroy: not exactly the compilation of quarterbacks an NFL head coach would like to have to choose from. Now that head coach Rex Ryan has benched Sanchez, likely in an attempt to allow him to get his head right, next week’s starter is completely up in the air. “I need a little more time to make that decision,” Ryan said Monday. Hearing the audio of Ryan’s comments, it did sound like there was some “tongue and…

Jets bench Mark Sanchez in favor of Greg McElroy

Dec 2, 2012

The Greg McElroy era in New York is underway—for the time being, at least. Mark Sanchez threw three interceptions in two-plus quarters of football against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, forcing head coach Rex Ryan to bench him in favor of the 2011 seventh-rounder out of Alabama. Sanchez had completed 10-of-21 passes for 97 yards when Ryan gave him the hook. Now you might be wondering why McElroy got the call instead of Tim Tebow. Well, Tebow has mysteriously been inactive for two straight weeks, with what Ryan has called a “rib injury.” But even if Tebow were healthy and dressed,…

Tim Tebow might be ‘terrible’, but he was good enough to break the Jets defense last season

Nov 15, 2012

It’s really now or never for Tim Tebow and the New York Jets. Sitting at 3-6, having lost three in a row, with the season slipping away from Rex Ryan faster than a Snickers covered in Astroglide, the Jets must make the decision that best suits the organization for the remainder of the season. Yeah, sure, Mark Sanchez signed a contract extension in the offseason, but he has done nothing but play below-average football, so exactly how many chances to turn the season around does he deserve? Now Tebow is nowhere near the quarterback Sanchez is, which isn’t really such…

We could see Tim Tebow at a new position on Sunday against the Patriots

Oct 18, 2012

We know that Tim Tebow can’t play quarterback, but we don’t yet know what kind of running back he would be. That could change this Sunday, though, according to New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan. Ryan told Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that Tebow could see some action at tailback against the New England Patriots this week. “That’s a possibility,” Ryan said of the option of Tebow carrying the ball, via Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “The thing about Tim, with him being a football player, . . . By playing quarterback, he knows all the…

Shonn Greene leads Jets to much-needed win over Colts

Oct 14, 2012

Heading into Week 6, one could argue that no team needed a big win more than the New York Jets. Sure, the Jets came in only one game back of first place, but the team was heading in the wrong direction. Mark Sanchez and the Jets offense has been abominable this season, while the defense has kept the team in a few games. But Sunday, against the Indianapolis Colts, the Jets were carried by someone who had become an afterthought on the offensive side of the ball. Running back Shonn Greene had his best game of the season, hands down. Greene…
