Found September 10, 2012 on Jets
EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ: After the Jets' shellacking of Buffalo yesterday 48-28 I was chatting with a friend  who covers the Jets for a major media outlet on the way down Rex Ryan's post-game presser. He told me his boss emailed him to make sure he got plenty of Tebow stuff  for his game story.Tebow stuff? 5 plays for 11 yards. How do you generate "plenty of Tebow stuff" from that?This proves it...It's really not the Fans who want Tim Tebow playing QB for the Jets, it's the media. Basically because he's a news wet dream.Don't get me wrong. If Mark Sanchez...

Not a lot of Tebow for Jets, but just enough

Tim Tebow wasn't needed much in this one for the New York Jets. The NFL's most popular backup quarterback was on the field for just nine plays on offense, including two in the much-hyped wildcat package, as the Jets routed the Buffalo Bills 48-28 on Sunday in the season opener. Tebow's biggest play came late in the game on special teams, when he recovered an onside... Power Rankings lists Jets as “Tebow”

An anti-climactic, plodding showing by Tim Tebow in Week One’s trouncing of the Bills isn’t deterring the media from relinquishing the hype. On Tuesday, released its first Power Rankings of the 2012 regular season, listing the Lions at No. 11, Steelers at 12, and … Tebow at 13? Yes, the Jets’ backup quarterback/Wildcat handler/personal punt protector has officially...

N.Y. Jets season preview: Tebow’s Wildcat will give Buffalo a run

BY SAM HITCHCOCK NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM COMMENTARY A ruling government is like a coaching regime. Each exists until its people/players become saturated by the demagogy/message. Eventually, what was working to keep the constituency centralized and stable transitions into something much different, and then that becomes aggrandized until everything collapses like a Jenga puzzle. From...

Report: Jets want to score with traditional offense before using Tebow

According to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, the New York Jets want to score in a traditional offense before using Tim Tebow (Credit: AP Photo) After trading for Tim Tebow during the off-season most fans believed the New York Jets would use Tim Tebow in a Wild Cat type of offense. Denver found unique ways to use Tebow in 2011 and the Jets are expected to try the same this season. Apparently...

Mark Sanchez denies that he was “rattled” by Tim Tebow trade

By Jeffrey Beall A couple of days ago, New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes came out and stated that quarterback Mark Sanchez was rattled when Tim Tebow was acquired in the offseason. Sanchez went on the radio and told Larry Hardesty of ESPN New York 98.7-FM that Holmes made everything seem more dramatic than it really was. “I think (Holmes) made it a little more dramatic...

The Best of the first Sunday in the NFL

The first week of the NFL always brings about surprises.  The pre season is to find out who’s going to make your team and not necessarily how you use your playbook.  That was apparent when the Jets demolished the Bills at Met Life Stadium yesterday.  New York really didn’t surprise Buffalo with the “Tebown Offense” but did catch them off guard when Joe Namath showed up...

New York Jets: Mark Sanchez Proves Why He's Starting

Hold the press. Delay the papers. Week 1 of New York Jets' football is in the books and Tim Tebow isn't the starting quarterback yet.That title remains in Mark Sanchez's hands, and rightfully so. With three touchdowns, 266 yards, and one interception in the Jets' season opener against the Buffalo Bills, Sanchez can worry a little less about his job security this...

Jets open season with surprising scoring outburst

So much for those preseason scoring woes. The New York Jets' offense went from laughable to unstoppable in a 48-28 rout of the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. It was an unexpected scoring splurge after the Jets' starters failed to score a touchdown in three preseason games. Things were so good Sunday that the defense and special teams got in on it, too. The Jets didn't even...

The Tuesday Muse, Week 1: Introductions; The Circus Is in Town; and Other Ideas

Welcome to the Muse.  Each Tuesday morning this NFL season, I’ll wake you up with some thoughts about the past weekend’s games and about the league in general.  There’s no aim at comprehensiveness here—there are plenty of sources for that.  I’m just looking to weave together a free flow of ideas, the kind you have on your couch on Sunday (and Monday, and Thursday)...

Rex Ryan ran over on sideline

Down goes Frazier Ryan

Jets' Revis suffered concussion Sunday

Jets head coach Rex Ryan confirmed Monday that cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a "mild concussion" in Sunday's victory over the Bills. His status for Sunday's game against the Steelers will be determined later in the week. "With any head injury and any injury at all but especially a head injury, I'm going to air on the side of caution. We'll see...

Stephen Hill Catches Two TDs in Debut & gets sick on Sideline

An old coach of mine once said that a little bit of nerves is a good thing. For rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill, a few nerve-induced puking fits on the sideline appears to be just the ticket for a solid debut performance. Hill, a former Georgia Tech star taken in the second round of the 2012 NF draft, caught five passes for 89 yards and two touchdowns against the Bills on Sunday...

Week 1 Recap: Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets

Final Score: 48-28 Jets. Yup. That’s what it says. Absolutely maddening. Ridiculous. Severe lack of professionalism. What do these three phrases have in common? While most of you may be thinking it has to do with my 28-10 prediction heading into the game, calling into question why the hell I’m writing about the NFL in the first place, you could not be more wrong if you tried...
