Finally, the Jersey Sports Fan has returned in the post-Tebow Jets trade era! This is certainly another hilarious episode from the Jersey Sports Fan, although it’s a little more NSFW than usual thanks to our guy discussing the sexual preferences of Tim Tebow. Check out the episode and our favorite quotes below.
New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow will talk about ''faith and football'' to a packed house at Cincinnati Christian University.
School spokesman Steve Carr said some 2,000 people are expected to hear Tebow on Tuesday in a discussion in the school gym and at an evening fundraising banquet.
Recently traded to the Jets from Denver, Tebow is known for late-game heroics...
A skanky website is on a mission to “out” Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow. They’re offering one million bucks to any woman who can prove she’s had sex with the self-professed virgin. (As if a woman who would publicly admit to sleeping with someone for money really needed the money to sleep with said dude to begin with.)
The website, Ashley Madison, has a reputation...
The NFL Network and NFL Films has done it again with one of their Top 10 lists. A few years ago, they made the decision to include both Syracuse and the MAC as football factories, while leaving Oklahoma and Texas off. Yesterday evening, they released their Top 10 list of Heisman Winners in the NFL [...]
I think the Jets made a good move bringing in Tim Tebow. We know he can start if he has to, making him a great back up QB. The Broncos drafted Tebow in the first round then the Jets gave up a fourth round pick to get him, now you have two first round picks at QB.
The perception of everyone outside of New York is that the Jets; the players and coaches are an evil organization. Timmy...
Traditionally, it has been ESPN at the front of the Tim Tebow bandwagon. This week, NFL Network came along and kicked Skip Bayless from out of the driver's seat with as transparent and gross of a ploy for ratings and buzz as you'll see from a network. I love NFL Films, I grew up with all the bloopers VHS tapes and even have all the music downloaded in iTunes. However...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the New York Jets have told back up quarterback Tim Tebow that they will be using him on special teams as a punt protector. Sounds like a joke to me, but it’s unfortunately true.
I guess the Jets were once again starving for attention, so they decided to make it known that Tebow will be playing on special teams. If this isn’t a sign that...
After blowing up the sports world with an incredible two weeks of games, Jeremy Lin became an instant star. Once Carmelo Anthony returned to the lineup after injury, however, his production dropped significantly. Then, Lin suffered a knee injury that would require surgery and put him out for the rest of the season (barring an [...]

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan continues to tell the media at every turn that Mark Sanchez will be the starting quarterback in 2012. However, yet another unheralded player has managed to stir the pot during this offseason. Coming off an offseason with Alabama QB Greg McElroy telling stories about how the Jets locker room was operating at a dysfunctional level, another player has...
