After mourning a Tim Tebow comeback attempt fallen short in the preseason, it's safe to say that no one values their kickers right now more than Rex Ryan and the anemic New York Jets.Except Norv Turner and the San Diego Chargers.On Friday night, Nick Novak nailed a 45-yard game-winning field goal as time expired, notching the undefeated Bolts a 12-10 win over the Minnesota Vikings.

I don't know why or when "reporter getting pummeled in the middle of a hurricane" became a thing, but Jim Cantore is the Joe Montana of the craft. As he stands in the streets of New Orleans with Hurricane Isaac coming through, Cantore takes a moment to drop to one knee and say, "for whatever it's worth, I hope I'm making Tebow proud."
The New York Jets are still searching for the end zone.
Mark Sanchez can't get them there, and neither can Tim Tebow.

Catch any of the Jets-Panthers game last night? Jets looked good right? This time is becoming more and more of a laughing stock with every passing week.
