And no, I am not talking about Tim Tebow. I’m not even talking about that other Jets’ quarterback, Mark “Please Don’t Call Me Tim” Sanchez.

Nick Folk and Josh Brown have known each other for years, good friends in a tight-knit NFL kicking fraternity.
The two buddies are also confident that they should be the guy who wins the New York Jets' open competition for the kicking job this season. Brown, a nine-year veteran who has been one of the league's most accurate kickers, says he has ''every intention...
Chaz Schilens was offended by cornerback Antonio Cromartie's recent comments that he thinks he's the New York Jets' second-best wide receiver, calling it a ''slight'' to the players at his position.

It didn’t take long for the New York Jets to undergo some turmoil, as they appear to be a team who just can’t seem to stay out of trouble every time they open their mouths. The best thing about the Jets’ controversy is that it is always someone new.

He hasn’t been running with the offense at this point in training camp, but he already has a self-evaluation of where he falls [...]
The Jets are always in the headlines especially when it comes to off the field commentary.

When Antonio Cromartie proclaimed himself as the second-best wide receiver on the New York Jets, you didn't think it was going to go away without being blown out of proportion, did you?
