New York Jets
Kansas City Chiefs
Forget the year of the quarterback, football is and always will be the sport of the quarterback. The position, for better or for worse, has always has been viewed as the most important on the field. The championship history of the NFL runs through the quarterback.
Because of this, NFL quarterbacks are put under a microscope on and off the field. Every move they make, pass they complete and interception they throw is combed over by the likes of ESPN, TMZ and GQ. Their lives are stories and their success and struggles are often projected onto the teams they play for.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some hot-button storylines, mostly on the field, that will involve NFL quarterbacks during the 2013 season.
The Saga of Mark Sanchez
Top 5 pick. Quarterback in the shadow of the Big Apple. Cover of GQ magazine. It all sounds so great until you are asked to win games. Many thought the Jets should have let him go this offseason, but the money they would owe him if they were to do that...
BEST OF MAXIM
The past 18 months have not been kind to New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez.
He has fallen from being considered a competent game manager to being widely viewed as a player that has a weak arm, weak leadership skills and an even weaker spirit.
As the Jets open the doors to a new league year, Sanchez spoke with Fox Sports Radio, via Sports Radio Interviews, to discuss his...
The Jets had more distractions last season than any other team in the NFL. Their "circus" was a result of unrealistic expectations and unneeded distractions from the media and fans. Tim Tebow didn't help matters any. In an interview with Fox Sports Radio's Petros and Money show, Mark Sanchez took what is perhaps a parting shot at Tim Tebow. While Tebow remains...
Last week Mark Sanchez’s quarterback tutor Jeff Garcia came out and labeled Tim Tebow a distraction that needs to be traded.
Tebow’s tutor didn’t like those comments, and came back firing. Steve Clarkson, a private quarterback coach who has worked with many NFL quarterbacks, is tutoring Tebow, and is not happy about how Tebow was treated.
According to Star Ledger, Clarkson...
The New York Jets schedule has been released and after examining the matchups they might want to can Rex Ryan before the season starts.
Key games against the New England Patriots, Baltimore Ravens, Pittsburgh Steelers, New Orleans Saints, and Atlanta Falcons could spell doom for Mark Sanchez in 2013.
Odds are the incumbent will retain the position no matter the results of the...
Mark Sanchez seems like a guy who can see the writing on the wall, and he’s not holding back any longer. Last season when Tim Tebow was initially acquired to back up Sanchez, the quarterback joked that “it was all to sale seats man.”
Sanchez is no longer joking around, and amid rumors of a feud between the two counterparts, Sanchez finally questioned why the Jets made the...
According to an independent QB coach who recently worked out with the Jets backup QB, NFL teams will be pleasantly surprised with what they see from Ol' Timmy in 2013.
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez ripped the way the Jets handled the media coverage of Tim Tebow last season while talking with the Petros and Money show on Fox Sports Radio.“I just don’t know if it was the best situation for either of us, but you play with the cards you are dealt with and do the very best you can,” Sanchez said, per the New York Daily News.“Well,...
Mark Sanchez suggests the media frenzy that accompanied Tim Tebow's presence with the New York Jets was partly fueled by the team itself.
The Jets quarterback says in an interview with FOX Sports Radio in Los Angeles that the media coverage during training camp in Cortland, N.Y., last summer was more intense than usual - including ESPN camping out for a week - because of Tebow...
Mark Sanchez is done playing Mr Nice Guy with the New York Jets, as he broke rank and is placing the blame of the crazy Tim Tebow coverage last year on the organization. Via the Jets Stream: “I just don’t know if it was the best situation for either of us, but you play with the cards you are dealt with and do the very best you can,” Sanchez said of the coverage surrounding...
As noted by Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News’ The Jets Stream in his recent report, New York Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez took the high road last season whenever the topic of Tim Tebow came up during interactions with the media.
Sanchez’s recent comments on FOX Sports Radio this week regarding Tim Tebow indicate that remains the case this offseason, but Sanchez...
It would take legions of evil forces to take down Tim Tebow, and apparently that’s exactly what has happened.
Steve Clarkson, Tebow’s personal quarterback instructor, is now suggesting that Tebow’s trade from the Broncos to the Jets last offseason was all part of a grand ploy to limit the popular passer. Clarkson said on a conference call Wednesday that the trade possibilities...
The day has come; we finally know when and where the New York Jets will play their 2013 opponents. It seems as though most people aren’t taking the Jets seriously in 2013, and with good reason. 2012 was a nightmare and this offseason has left a lot to be desired for Jets Nation. The Jets 2013 opponents have a collective record of 127-129, which is good for the 13th-easiest schedule...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez believes the team was ultimately responsible for all the hype and excessive coverage of Tim Tebow last season. “I just don’t know if it was the best situation for either of us, but you play with the cards you are dealt with and do the very best you can,” said Sanchez on FOX Sports Radio’s Petros and Money, via Manish Mehta of the New...
