The New York Jets actually won a game on Sunday.  (Yay!)  But of course, we can't go a week in the saga of the 2012 New York Jets without the biggest controversy and news story of the NFL season, win or lose.  The Jets are basically that one person in your life who can never be happy and depends on drama to surivive like it's oxygen.  You know those people.  You probably abhor those people.  The Jets are those people. This week, Bart Scott, who may or may not be one of the anonymous sources involved in bashing Tim Tebow, tried to lead a boycott against the media after the win over the Rams for publishing a report on anonymous sources ripping Tim Tebow.  He didn't succeed.  Yes, you can't make this up.  Via the New York Post... "Bart Scott tried to lead a media boycott in the locker room after the Jets beat the Rams on Sunday. But much like many of his attempted tackles, he failed. The Gang Green linebacker ordered every Jets defensive player to say nothing but “both teams played hard” to reporters, threatening anyone that don’t obey his wishes. Scott’s anger clearly stems from a report this week that published anonymous Jets players ripping Tim Tebow." Bart Scott also reportedly called one player, Yeremiah Bell, a sellout for talking to the media.  The Jets are the biggest clown show in sports this year and week after week they find new ways to take their own absurdities to higher levels.  At this point, the New York Jets should just go away for our collective sanity.  And i know the perfect solution - a media boycott of the New York Jets!  Of course that'll never happen as long as Tim Tebow is on the roster, but hey, a guy can dream, right?

Definitive gallery of the NFL's greatest bro, Joe Namath

The NFL would be exponentially better from a media and soundbite standpoint if every team had its own Joe Namath. The legendary New York Jets and Los Angeles Rams quarterback is one of the true bright spots of the media circus that surrounds the team that plays in MetLife Stadium and doesn’t win Super Bowls, and I’m sure many Jets fans would disagree with that assessment, but...

Tim Tebow Sent Bouquet of Balloons Saying ‘You’re Special’ By Anonymous Fan (Photo)

Sometimes, we all just need a little pick-me-up at the office. Just something to know people care. Well, Tim Tebow got exactly that on Tuesday, as an “anonymous fan” sent him a bouquet of balloons bearing the phrase “You’re special” on them, according to the New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch. After Tebow’s previous week, in which he was bashed by anonymous teammates, it’s...

Bart Scott leads ‘media mutiny’ following Jets win

After a tumultuous week filled with antonymous quotes and an alleged in-house divide, the Jets answered the bell in St. Louis, snapping a three-game losing streak with a 27-13 victory over the Rams. But it wasn't enough for Bart Scott, who failed to let Gang Green escape the Gateway City without an extra dash of drama. Following the Jets win, the always outspoken linebacker...

Game Recap: JETS 27 - RAMS 13

Jets keep postseason chances alive with win in St. Louis. After coming off their Bye week and losing big in Seattle, the Jets season seemed to been in a tailspin.  With two blowout losses in three weeks (MIA, BYE, SEA) and an article released that supposedly shed some light on a divided locker room, the Jets found an escape at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis."Our guys have...

Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Jets/Patriots Preview Edition

It’s a bit of a shame that the Jets play on a short week against the Pats this week because I would like to savor that curb-stomping Rex Ryan and his defense handed to former Jets coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s current St. Louis Rams offense just a little bit longer. After all, we haven’t had all that much to be pleased with this year, right? It sure was sweet to be on...

No Huddle – Crucial Win In St. Louis Edition

4-6 is not the type of record to go celebrating in the Meatpacking District over. The way New York athletes often do after big victories. Ending a three game skid and moving beyond a “Terrible Tim” storm that threatened to derail focus on the Rams is. The Jets win over St Louis has seemingly calmed the Florham Park madness down for the time being but more importantly, has moved...

Tebow sent balloons bouquet

Sometimes, we all just need a little pick-me-up at the office. Just something to know people care. New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow received exactly that on Tuesday. An "anonymous fan" sent Tebow a bouquet of balloons bearing the phrase, "You're special," according to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post. Hubbuch posted on Twitter (with the photo...

Tebometer rises… but should it?

In the New York Jets 27-13 victory over St. Louis on Sunday, Tim Tebow completed his one and only pass (although calling it a pass is a bit misleading, it was really just a forwarded lateral).   Amazingly Tebow has now put up a 100% completion rate in each of the last 3 games he has thrown the ball. However, his “pass” against the Rams netted the Jets -1 yard, so in reality...

Kerley Active For Jets

New York wideout Jeremy Kerley will be uniform Sunday against the Rams. He had been listed as questionable with heel and hamstring injuries.Fantasy Spin:Kerley sat out practice on Friday but it looks like he'll be a full go Sunday in St. Louis. Fantasy owners have probably learned by now to temper their expectations with Mark Sanchez under center. But just in case it hasn'...

Rex Ryan defends Bill Belichick... wait, what?!

The New York papers might want to make fun of Bill Belichick but Rex Ryan is having none of that.With his team trailing the Patriots in the division by essentially four games (Pats hold tie-breaker) he's not in a position to trash talk. In fact he went the opposite direction and went to bat for Belichick in the face of his criticism for leaving Gronkowski in for the extra point...

Week 11 Preview – St. Louis Rams vs. New York Jets

  The Rams must win this game against the New York Jets at home. On the road, I could live with a loss, but at home, we must win. The “must” part is not arising from a fantasy that we are a far superior team to the Jets. There are no teams in this league that we outclass by a large margin. Instead, the “must” part of the win comes from how well this games sets up for...
