San Diego Chargers
New York Jets
Norv Turner knows the end is likely near for him with the San Diego Chargers.
General manager A.J. Smith might be out soon, too.
There are two games left to play before an offseason of uncertainty begins. And, the New York Jets' Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum know the feeling.
Regular playoff participants a few years ago, both franchises are struggling to the finish line. And a winter of big changes could be in store.
''It's been difficult, in terms of offensively, and I can only speak for my side of the ball and what I'm able to contribute,'' Chargers tight end Antonio Gates said. ''Not playing up to our expectations and not playing up to the level that we've set and the standard of what we set for ourselves, sometimes it's frustrating because you do everything the right way. You prepare and you work hard. ... Not being able to capitalize on the season, it's been tough.''
Both the Chargers (5-9) and Jets (6-8) are out of th...

THANK YOU MAMA
Takeo Spikes turned 36 years old, and the NFL linebacker received a funny birthday present from his mom. See what she sent him.
The New York Jets tried out Norwegian YouTube kicking sensation Harvard Rugland this week. “It went well,” the 27-year-old Rugland told Norwegian state broadcaster NRK. “They tested me on field goals and kickoffs. Obviously you feel a little more pressure here, but I stayed pretty calm.”
Florham Park, NJ - According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has declined a contract extension from the Jets. Pettine has been Rex Ryan's number two guy for a number of years, since they're days in Baltimore, with Pettine declining the extension he will likely be on the move and he should have very little trouble finding new...
The New York Jets will consider all their options regarding quarterback Mark Sanchez in the offseason, a person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press.
The person, who requested anonymity because the team's personnel plans are private, tells the AP on Thursday that the Jets have not made any determinations involving Sanchez.
That means the benched quarterback...
With the report that the Jets are planning to shop Mark Sanchez comes the news that Rex Ryan would also like to bring in Mike Vick.
The New York Jets’ acquisition of Tim Tebow turned into as big of a disaster as many expected it to be. And now, a few days after it was announced that Greg McElroy would replace Mark Sanchez as the team’s starting quarterback, multiple reports say the Jets will trade or release Tebow after the season.
The New York Post, Newsday, and New York Daily News all cited sources saying...
The New York Jets' quarterback position continued to draw attention Wednesday. Coach Rex Ryan did not directly address questions about Tim Tebow's future with the team and Mark Sanchez, benched as the starter this week in favor of Greg McElroy, received death threats on Twitter that later were deleted by the sender. According to reports, Tebow will asked for a trade or...
The 2012 season has been a forgettable one for the New York Jets. From the Tim Tebow media frenzy to Fireman Ed’s early retirement, the franchise and fan base have dealt with enough madness for one season. Unfortunately, it's still alive and kicking.There will be no Cinderella story for the Jets this year. It's another missed opportunity with no playoff appearance. After...
Recently benched quarterback Mark Sanchez has been "coddled" by
the Jets and would be a "bad apple" as a backup in New York next
season, one former teammate says.
The Jets' season has come to a floundering halt after their Monday night loss to the Tennessee Titans 14 -10. Mark Sanchez looked like a klutz, once again, throwing 4 interceptions. This was another in a string of clumsy games that have involved Sanchez this season. He has 24 turnovers total this season, 17 INT and 7 fumbles lost. Everyone's favorite fumble was the "...
Rex Ryan had higher expectations for the New York Jets'
wildcat-style offense with Tim Tebow, and says things haven't
''panned out'' the way he or the backup quarterback
Remember those comments ESPN President John Skipper made about the network finally seeing the light and realizing their obsession with Tim Tebow was way too much for way too long? Let's take a look back, shall we?
"I said, 'Guys, we didn't handle this very well.' Going to training camp wasn't a problem. We just stayed on it relentlessly and too long...
Week 15 Record: 0-3
Season Record: 14-29-2
Unfortunately, there are TWO more weeks of the regular season in the NFL. God why can’t this just end sooner?
I will be doing a Best Bets piece for Week 17 (I’m sure you’re all in tatters with excitement), but Week 17 falls on Dec. 30 this year. I plan on spending the week between Christmas and New Years bathing in alcohol and greasy...
