The New York Jets had major issues within their locker room last season, and some of those same issues are cropping up again now that the team has fallen to 3-6 on the season. Several Jets players and personnel anonymously ripped Tim Tebow this week and said he would not be able to handle the starting quarterback position. While Rex Ryan always encourages his players to speak their minds, he thinks not attaching a name to it is a gutless act.
“Did I address it? I absolutely addressed it,” Ryan said Wednesday according to the NY Daily News. “Because I think it’s a cowardly thing. If you’re not going to put your name to it, I think that’s about as cowardly of a thing as there is. I even mentioned that. I said, ‘Look, if…’ Well, I don’t want to get into specifics of what I said. But I did address it with our football team. I absolutely did.
“If you’re going to make a negative comment, that’s fine. We never say that it always has to be a bed of roses. But again, put your name to it. I th

I GET SO EMOTIONAL
Known for his bluster and bravado, the Jets coach showed a different side of himself to his players following their loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
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.

Ryan is absolutely right; if you want to call Tebow terrible, be like the...
On Wednesday, members of the New York Jets locker room semi-shocked the world with their shots against backup quarterback Tim Tebow.
Since that initial salvo, various members of the team (including Tebow) have weighed in on the matter but nobody’s words seem to feel as honest as running back Shonn Greene’s.

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.

The New York Jets' offense was listless in Seattle and that didn't sit well with head coach Rex Ryan.
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...
(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.

There's a strong possibility many NFL teams will be starting backup quarterbacks in Week 11 for one reason or another, though the New York Jets won't be one of them.

Coach Rex Ryan's task of helping the slumping Jets remain positive is becoming increasingly difficult as they...
After yet another putrid performance in Sunday’s 28-7 loss to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington, it is more evident than ever that Mark Sanchez is a quarterback incapable of making the New York Jets a winning organization. … Continue reading →

Here are my three bold predictions for the game.1. The Jets’ will help St. Louis get an easy win.On the stat...
