Posted November 15, 2012 on AP on Fox
New York Jets running back Shonn Greene says he was ''shocked'' by a published report in which he was quoted as suggesting the team might need to make a change at quarterback. Greene says Thursday the Yahoo! story included quotes that were ''completely out of context.'' He adds that he never said anything about replacing Mark Sanchez with Tim Tebow as the quarterback. The story quoted Greene as saying: ''You feel bad for Mark, but at the same time you want to win games. ... If you want to win games, you've got to try something.'' Michael Silver, who wrote the story, wrote on Twitter that he stands by his column ''100 pct'' and quoted Greene accurately. Greene says he texted Sanchez when he heard about the story, and the two are fine. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

Time for Rex to admit Sanchez is not his ‘guy’

I am pretty sure I lost a bet earlier this season when I predicted Mark Sanchez would be benched by Week 10. At the start of the 2012 season, things were looking okay for the Jets. All they really needed to focus on is getting through a tough first half, fix mistakes during the bye, and storm through a much easier second-half schedule. But, the Jets did not do what they needed to...

Pete Carroll feels bad for Jets' Mark Sanchez

Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots. After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez...

New York Jets QB Controversy: Shonn Green Should Make Beeping Noise When He Backtracks That Much

The New York jets quarterback controversy took yet another interesting twist this week when many current players said that they had absolutely no faith or confidence in Tim Tebow, opting rather to stick with mark Sanchez as the team’s starting QB going forward. As bad as Sanchez has been throughout the entire 2012 NFL season, it says something when the Jets do not even support...

Anonymous Jets players rip Tebow

The horrid play of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez along with the team's 3-6 record has some fans and pundits calling for the Jets to finally make the move and insert Tim Tebow as starting quarterback.

Rex Ryan: Tebow Comments “Cowardly”

Per a report from CNN’s Sports Illustrated, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks the player(s) who called Tim Tebow “terrible” are “a cowardly thing.”  Ryans comments are in response to an earlier report of over a dozen Jets players and members of the organization anonymously criticizing Tebow. Ryan is absolutely right; if you want to call Tebow terrible, be like the...

Column: If not now, when is 'Tebow Time?'

(Eds: Corrects Keller's first name to Dustin in seventh paragraph. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Jets coach Rex Ryan is so competitive that he'd play Satan at quarterback if he was convinced the move would help his team win. But for some reason, he's drawn the line at Tim Tebow. On any other team, with any other backup waiting in the wings, there...
