Just in case you thought I just went and hid in a box for the last few days, I'm here to say I'm well aware of what's been going on in the sports world. I'm very happy to know the dysfunctional and disgusting season of the New York Jets will end without seeing them in the playoffs. I actually figured there wasn't too much for me to say since everyone in the sports media was talking about how terrible the Jets are. The only person I do feel bad for is quarterback Tim Tebow, because I feel like he was mislead by the coaches and management. As for the rest of the team, it's goodbye and it's not a moment too soon. Everything that's going on with this team doesn't come as a surprise to me because I saw this train wreck coming a long time ago. You still had a cancerous locker room environment along with a quarterback(who isn't even the starter anymore)in Mark Sanchez who has turned the ball over 50 times since the start of last season. Most of all, you had a head coach in Rex Ryan who has no control of that cancerous locker room and appears to be a shell of the man who coached the Jets to two straight AFC Championship Game appearances in his first two seasons in that position. The only thing that's surprising is how much media attention this team gets on a weekly basis. I never understood how a team that is below average is even worthy of that type of attention. I understand the Jets play in the nation's #1 media market, but that shouldn't be an excuse to cover a team whose on-the-field product is so poor. The question now is what to do with this team in the off-season. There are a lot of questions that need to be answered, and I think I have some answers. First, Tebow needs to go to a place where he knows he will be utilized. All you kept hearing about was this great plan the Jets had for Tebow, when it turned out they had no plan at all. Sanchez might have played his final game as a Jet, and for him, it's probably the best thing. I know he's been a turnover machine, but it would help if there were some weapons around him. Speaking of the lack of weapons, that's a direct reflection on coaching and management, and there should be some changes coming on that front as well. Ryan may be in danger of losing his job, and so is offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. The general manager, Mike Tannenbaum, might be on the way out the door as well(all of these men would be gone if I was the owner of the team). In other words, it's probably time to clean house in New York. The Jets weren't built the right way in the first place, and we're all seeing the end result. You have to get players with the sole purpose of winning football games, not to try and win the tabloid war. It's clear the Jets were all about the tabloid war in New York, and now those same tabloids are talking about how sorry they are. I personally think it well deserved, but I also feel like it's time to stop talking about this team after today. The papers and news outlets should be dedicated to the teams that still have the chance to make the playoffs and ultimately, make a run at the Super Bowl, not on teams that don't have a shot. The Jets are a mess, and we all know that. Until the mess is cleaned up, it will continue to be disappointing for Jets fans.

There is a reason that Super Bowl Champs aren’t getting much attention, even though they are in the midst of wasting a three-game lead in their division by losing six of eight in the second hand of the season. The New York Jets are taking all the attention away from them, much like they did [...]
It doesnt take a perfect Wunderlic score to comprehend Tim Tebows time with the New York Jets is winding down.
What initially seemed to be a bold move to add a new offensive dimension with Tebow not to mention increased publicity in the same town as the defending Super Bowl champion Giants contributed largely to creating a dysfunctional atmosphere that helped produce an embarrassing...
New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow reportedly asked to be taken out of the team’s wild cat formation plays for this Sunday’s game (Credit: AP Photo)
I thought maybe, perhaps, I would have a year off of dealing with Tebow mania. In case you did not have enough of it last season, it has returned again this year. First the New York Jets came out to say that they will look to shop...
According to ESPNNewYork.com, New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow was so frustrated that Greg McElroy was named the starter instead of him that he told the coaches to take him out of their wildcat package.
Tebow has been frustrated all season by his lack of playing time, but it culminated Tuesday upon hearing he would be passed over for a starting opportunity when Ryan decided...
It’s basically a foregone conclusion that Tim Tebow’s tenure
with the New York Jets has nearly come to an end, but Chris Mortensen of ESPN,
via Michael David Smith of Pro Football Talk, is now reporting that it’s “a

In fact, Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that it’s “a
There has been speculation that Tim Tebow would have to switch positions in order to continue his NFL career, but that might not be the case. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports it’s highly likely that Tebow signs with the Jacksonville Jaguars to compete for their starting quarterback job.
Mortensen reported prior to Saturday’s Falcons-Lions game that it’s a “virtual certainty”...
Tom Brady led a comeback win over the Jaguars while the Miami Dolphins, fueled by what were very slim (now non-existent) playoff hopes, gave the Bills and Jets a lesson in fighting to the end. Meanwhile, Ebenezer Ryan ruined Tiny Tim Tebow's Christmas.
If it wasn’t bad enough for Tim Tebow who was overlooked by Rex Ryan for Greg McElroy, he also had to watch Jeremy Kerley play wildcat for the New York Jets.
Tebow, who is fully healty, had to watch as Kerley played in the Wildcat, took a direct snap and threw a 42-yard completion to Clyde Gates to set up the Jets’ first touchdown. With that one pass, Kerley eclipsed Tebow’s...

The New York Jets have a raging quarterback controversy on their hands. They have been juggling the trio of Mark Sanchez, Greg McElroy, and Tim Tebow all year long. However, they also seem to be concerned about their kicking game as well.Seen here is a Norwegian kicker named Havard Rugland doing some pretty amazing things with a pigskin. So amazing in fact that someone from the Jets...
The Jets deserved this. This 27-17 loss to the Chargers was Woody Johnson, Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum’s reward for having no plan at all on offense, acquiring Tim Tebow, and failing to improve the Jets skill positions during the offseason. This week’s No Huddle is brought to you by, the Jets offensive line.
Greg McElroy was sacked 11 times. In one game. Keep in...
