When You're A Jet... Normally, I'd react to the news that the Jets are thinking about hiring JaMarcus Russell with a quick and easy honking list of Com Oh Dee, because, um, well, those things write themselves. But really, kids, I have my limits, and this just feels too much like what the kid in the special ed class soils himself, then puts his hands in it and tries to paint. More sad than fun. A lot more. There is, of course, a place for Russell to play football again; there always will be, because the fact is that any #1 overall pick will always have some team that wants to look at the old scouting reports and see if there's something there. If Cam Newton can have a career, well, the guy who made people doubt Newton in the first place can too, right?

Mark Schlereth and Hannah Storm doubt Tim Tebow’s future in ESPN gaffe (VIDEO)

I’m not sure if you have noticed ESPN’s insatiable crush on New York Jets special teams contributor Tim Tebow.  They have turned back the heat and stopped reporting when he sneezes and farts, but if he hocks a big enough loogie, they’ll break into regularly-scheduled programming.  During their Super Bowl over-analyzation Tuesday, the ESPN couldn’t help themselves from talkin’...

New York Jets: The Revis Debate

Former Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum takes fall for Tim Tebow trade

From the time it became obvious that Tim Tebow was not going to be a fit with the New York Jets, the media and fans have been looking for someone to blame.
