Down and Distance:
When it comes to the United State, New York tends to the center of attention. When it comes to the NFL, the Jets, infamously, have become the new center of attention of the league. One not close to football might wonder, “Why are the 4-7 New York Jets, who have lost four of their last five games the head team that the national media wants to talk about?”
On top of having the most boisterous head coach in the league, a bottom-five starting quarterback (Mark Sanchez), and the most covered backup in all of football (Tim Tebow) on the team; the Jets create their own attention.
You don’t often hear from offensive line coaches, leave for the Jets. Today the team’s OL coach Dave DeGugielmo had a little something to say. It wasn’t about his players, other coaches, the fans. Nope. It was about the media.
OL coach Dave DeGugielmo, who hasn’t spoke since training camp, just came in furious at the media. #nyj

Walder went on to share a little more of the details on DeGugielmo’s interesting press conference.
Gug opened press conference with statement that he was available to speak during bye week, in his office, when building was closed. #nyj

Alright, Gug, so you wanted them to attend your press conference when the building was closed. I feel your anger. All jokes aside, the Jets are a mess and there’s not much that can save them and their 4-7 record at this point.
I guess there’s always next year?
*feature picture of DeGugielmo is from when he was previously with the New York Giants.

BEST OF MAXIM
The Jets have no offense. They even managed to injure Tim Tebow in the limited time he's getting on the field. Which coaches survive this disastrous season?
After an average Thanksgiving week of picks I'm sitting at 114-63. I need to step my game up as we sprint to the postseason.

There are plenty of negative things to say about Mark Sanchez as a quarterback, but you can't discount his optimism.
Just five days after getting shellacked by the New England Patriots, the New York Jets' quarterback is still confident about his team's playoff chances, despite a 4-7 record. Perhaps when things have hit rock bottom there's nowhere to go but up, but...
Today, New York jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was asked about last week’s butt-fumble and said he was stunned when it happened.
“I guess (I was) more stunned than anything,” Sanchez told the Associated Press Wednesday, via NFL.com. “Just like a car accident. I was like, ‘Whoa. What just happened?’ Then, the ball’s gone. It was weird.”
You have to give Sanchez credit...
The flash in the NFL pan that’s been the Rex Ryan-era New York Jets was finally doused Thanksgiving night thanks to the New England Patriots. Losing to the dominant division foe from up north is one thing, but losing like the way the J-E-T-S Jets-Jets-Jets did is flat-out embarrassing. The fallout has been spectacular. Fan number one Fireman Ed has resigned, the boos have been...
The New York Jets have officially listed Tim Tebow as a game time decision for their Week 13 game against the Arizona Cardinals. Recovering from two fractured ribs, it appears highly doubtful that Tebow will play this week. Considering the nature and extent of his injury, it is completely understandable.
What is far more difficult to understand is why this is even a story.
KEEPING THE FAITH
Joe Namath indicated he was losing faith in Mark Sanchez, but the former Jets legend apparently is still on board with the current QB.
A cap tip to longtime Friend of the Facts William Berry for the video: N.Y. Jets lowlights, played to the tune of the old British slapstick comedy, the Benny Hill Show.
Oh boy. It seems that New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez has been dipping into the Kool-Aid that his head coach enjoys. It must also be spiked with some something pretty strong. The Jets currently stand at 4-7 and the cusp of futility, and a major offseason shake-up anticipated. There are zero glimmers of hope [...]
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez couldn't dodge speaking out on this incident forever. He also couldn't dodge guard Brandon Moore's buttocks on that fateful day at MetLife stadium when he was tackled by his teammate's rear causing a fumble that was then returned for a touchdown by the Patriots. This, of course, is one of the most embarrassing plays imaginable...
Sanchez! Lindley! The NFL on FOX, Next! The Turn On The Jets 12 pack is here with predictions for the battle of 4-7 offensive juggernauts that will take place at MetLife Stadium this weekend. It will certainly be interesting to see what starters the team decides to call out, since they have had to resort to calling out the special teams and first responders to Hurricane Sandy in...
It took a few days for this video to surface on the Internet, but it was well worth the wait.
Suffice to say, the second quarter of Thanksgiving Day’s 49-19 loss to the Patriots didn’t go well for the Jets. The Pats turned four Jets turnovers into touchdowns, and scored 35 points (all after a scoreless first quarter) to effectively seal the win before half of the game was even...
