Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
As the Jets gear up for their suddenly big game in Tennessee tonight, the playoffs are more than just a pipe dream. We are all familiar with the scenarios at this point, and with Pittsburgh and Indianapolis losing yesterday, a win tonight puts the Jets right in the thick of the playoff hunt with two games to go. Should that happen, it’s going to be awfully hilarious to see the outrage from other fans and media “experts” that the “garbage” Jets made it over “more deserving” teams. Just the thought of that makes me giddy.
Anyway, it’s a borderline miracle that the Jets and playoffs are even possibly going together in the same sentence with the way some of this season has gone, and Rex Ryan deserves a ton of credit for having this team in this position. The Jets roster was extremely poorly constructed as we’ve been over time and time again, and if we knew back in September that some of the Jets stats would look the way they do at this point in the season, we’d think we would be scoutin...

PRAY FOR A CHANGE
The Jets' supposed backup QB is not happy that the team is thinking of starting Greg McElroy over him in Week 16, and may even consider asking out of NYC in the offseason.
According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, quarterback Tim Tebow feels misled by the New York Jets, since when he was acquired in the offseason he was told that he would have a shot to start if Mark Sanchez was either benched or went down with an injury.
The reason Tebow hasn’t gotten a chance to start is because he’s been so bad in practice and the Jets clearly realize now that...
Now that the New York Jets have named Greg McElroy as their
starting quarterback for Sunday’s matchup against the San Diego Chargers over
Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, there will surely be a few offseason shakeups as a
result. One of these is expected to come in the form of Tebow requesting to be
traded or released following if McElroy starts the two remaining games, reports
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets quarterback Tim Tebow will request to be either traded or released if Greg McElroy starts the final two games of the regular season.

Tim Tebow formally of the Florida Gators and now of the New York Jets came in on a short yardage situation and seized the day. CARPE DIEM! Tebow came in and got the first down against the Tennessee Titans. Mark Sanchez couldn’t have down that.
According to the New York Daily News, Tim Tebow will request to be traded or released after being passed over by Greg McElroy on the depth chart. NFL Network had previously reported Tebow “could” request a trade or his release. A source tells reporter Manish Mehta Tebow’s desire to leave “came to a head” when McElroy was announced as Mark Sanchez’s replacement on Tuesday...
Tim Tebow will ask the New York Jets to trade or release him after the season assuming Greg McElroy starts at quarterback for the team’s final two games, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Mehta’s report, which he calls the “next domino” in the Jets’ quarterback situation, comes after coach Rex Ryan named McElroy the starting quarterback for the team’s Week...
The New York Jets have decided to finally bench Mark Sanchez at quarterback, but they’re not replacing him with Tim Tebow. Instead, head coach Rex Ryan announced on Tuesday that Greg McElroy, who entered the season as the team’s third-string QB, will get the start.
Though Tebow has not publicly complained, he reportedly feels like the Jets misled him about his opportunity to...
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan flip-flopped on Tim Tebow's possible role in Monday night's game against the Tennessee Titans. Ryan told reporters Friday that Tebow may serve as a personal protector on punts and might see action in the Wildcat formation on offense. Earlier in the week, Ryan said Tebow would not perform those functions. Ryan changed his mind after watching...
Mark EvansAfter head coach Rex Ryan has decided to go with Greg McElroy as his starting quarterback in the final game of the season, many were scratching their head as to why Tim Tebow was not given a shot. He was brought into town to be the backup quarterback, but has yet to get a chance.
Tebow has spent the entire season as nothing more than much of a gimmick, a year after he was...
The Mayans predicted this. The Mayan calendar ends in the same week the Jets lost their 2012 playoff bid. The Mayans saw this coming and that makes them whole lot smarter than the New York Jets organization.
A report on NFL.com says the Jets are likely to make a (long overdue) quarterback switch when they face the Chargers this Sunday. Tim Tebow will not start for the...
“That’s the way this game should end. That’s the way the Jets season should end. Ugly and a loss.”
Mike Tirico couldn’t have said it any better.
Before Monday night’s humiliating loss in Tennessee, the Jets were the NFL’s version of The Walking Dead. After 15 weeks of play that fluctuated between hideous and atrocious, somehow, someway, they were still alive in the...
