Several Denver Broncos players defended and even reached out to New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow following the report in the New York Daily News that quoted Jets players saying Tebow is "terrible." Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas told Mike Kilis of The Denver Post that he was upset when he heard the report from New York so he sent a text of encouragement to Tebow. "I was disappointed that players would say something like that about him in public," said Thomas, a receiver who was taken with the No. 22 overall pick by the Broncos in the 2010 draft, three spots ahead of Tebow. "Because he didn't do anything to anybody. I don't know. ... It was sad when I heard about it." Broncos receiver Eric Decker said he respected Tebow, who took over as the Broncos Starter in Week 7 against Miami. "Obviously, everybody has opinions on the guy," Decker said. "Mine was, I respected the guy. His passion for the game, what he did on Sundays — it wasn't always the most conventional way, but it was a win. A lot of guys bought in and trusted more."Champ Bailey told Klis that Tebow was one of his best teammates. "He was one of my all-time favorite teammates," Bailey said. "One of the best teammates I've ever had. Just because of the way he handled everything. It's not easy being him. Still not, obviously. He might not be able to stand back there and throw that ball like some, but he plays with alotof heart. You can't knock a guy who tries that hard and puts that much into it." Bailey is wondering the same question so many others are, saying: "Are they going to play him or not?" "Tell ya what, their situation is not a lot different from where we were last year," Bailey said. "I'm not going to lie to you. He did rub off on people," Bailey said. "He is an inspiring dude, and I think that's why his fan base is so big. He's passionate about everything he does." The Jets are 3-6 with Mark Sanchez, it's time for Rex Ryan to show some gut and make a change.

Now, we can officially say this whole anonymous New York Jets thing has gotten out of control.

Another player...
Ever wondered what a Tim Tebow-inspired Nissan Xterra would look like? Well, it appears that one Jets fan decided to deck out his green ride with Jets/Tebow decals.

It’s an (anonymous) war of words in the Jets locker room.
One unnamed Jets player wants to make something clear: he doesn’t trust anonymous quotes. What’s to prevent a journalist from making them up to sell newspapers? However, if, in fact, the quotes are real, then the anonymous Jets player wants his anonymous Jets teammates to know that they should back up their words by...

The New York Jets' winning formula Sunday against the St. Louis Rams Sunday was throwback 2009: stout defensive play, a steady rushing attack and mistake-free quarterbacking from Mark Sanchez. Running back Bilal Powell rushed for two scores, and Sanchez connected on 15 of 20 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' 27-13 victory. And get this -- Sanchez didn'...
