New York Jets
Eagles v. New York Jets
Radio: WIP 94 FM and 610 AM
The New York Jets are 0-3 in preseason action and, in case you haven’t heard, have yet to score a touchdown. The full-scale circus that has followed the Jets this year will be toned down a bit by the fact that Tim Tebow will not be playing in Thursday night’s game. I see the sadness on your face even as I write this.
The Eagles won’t be playing their starters so why bother to watch this game? In case you’ve forgotten, all NFL teams must have their rosters to 53 by Friday evening. While there has already been some movement on Philadelphia’s roster (more below), tonight will secure the futures of several men on this squad, for better or for worse.
Trent Edwards will pay three quarters, so if he has a solid showing it will serve to cement his future with the Eagles organization versus Mike Kafka’s.
At safety, last year’s 2nd-round pick from Temple, safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, has not done anything to help his future wit...

In case you do not happen to be a fan of biblical-themed game shows — and frankly, how dare you — the Game Show Network’s brand-new-holy series, The American Bible Challenge, hosted by none other than Jeff Foxworthy, aired its second episode and in it, a new challenge was introduced. And yesiree, it was lame. So, [...]
The NFL Network has unveiled its schedule of subjects for the first two months of its A Football Life series. Jets back-up quarterback Tim Tebow will be the first subject when the new season debuts on September 12th at 8:00p.m. ET. Here is the list of subjects through the end of October: September 12 – Tim
Tim Tebow's intangibles won't be found in the box score. Find out why New York's Wildcat quarterback isn't concerned about his low completion percentage, but intent on leading the Jets into the end zone.
TAKE A KNEE
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."
Former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann made it clear he is tired of Mark Sanchez being a nice guy when it comes to Tim Tebow's presence on the New York Jets.
Theismann told WFAN yesterday that it's time for Sanchez to take a stand for himself and stop singing Kumbaya with his backup quarterback.
"This strikes at the heart of Mark Sanchez's pride,"...
All eyes have been on the New York Jets.
Tim Tebow, Mark Sanchez and Rex Ryan have been in the headlines for months. After all, the NFL's most talked-about bunch is fascinating, entertaining and controversial. Now, the Jets will find out if that translates into a winning combination.
''It's a big year for all of us,'' Sanchez said. ''We're all...
There is never a dull moment with the New York Jets, right? I know, you are so over the Jets with all their coverage from ESPN. Probably tired of us bringing them up as well, right? Tough. The latest news about the team that has yet to score a touchdown in the preseason is that [...]
The Jaguars have had two big problems over the last few seasons, starting quarterback and putting people in the seats. The Jaguars' attendance has been horrible and the quarterback play even worse.They had a chance to attain a quarterback that made the playoffs last season and is arguably the most popular athlete in the history of the state of Florida. Unfortunately, the Jaguars...
A while ago, Joe Namath said that the Jets were more interested in making headlines than winning football games. As if there needed to be any more proof as to why Namath was right… enter team owner Woody Johnson. Johnson reportedly told the New York Daily News that you can “never have enough Tebow”.
Johnson was asked if he felt like the Jets preseason offensive struggles would...
It is no secret that the New York Jets' offense is struggling to score after three preseason games. Both first string and second sting quarterbacks, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, are inspiring a cacophony of boos from fans.Last week's boos from New Jersey's Met Life Stadium were so loud you could hear them across the river in New York City.Imagine you are on a certain...
Hey, so my name is Michael and I’ll be giving my take on the Jets. With the season just around the corner I figured now would be a good time to preview the season. Just so we’re clear I’m not a Jets fan.
The Jets would go undefeated this year if they let Tim Tebow start. Since, you already know, all he does is win! Ask him to throw a ten yard pass and he’ll laugh at you...
The New York Jets finally scored a touchdown in their fourth and last preseason game.After three poor offensive outings it looked as though the Jets may have to rely on defensive fumble recoveries or pick-sixes to put points on the board.However, the third-string offense did make it in to the end zone.Quarterback Greg McElroy threw a six-yard pass to running back Terrence Ganaway...
The New England Patriots have run the AFC East for what seems like an eternity. The New York Jets appeared ready to challenge their supremacy, but the circus turned into a freak show last year. Things became even more ridiculous for the Jets this off-season with the addition of Tim Tebow. Now don’t get me [...]
The New York Jets have gotten plenty of attention this preseason, but none of it has been particularly positive. Everybody has heard about the team’s struggles to reach the endzone in their first three fake games, which came off the heels of an ESPN love fest at training camp in Cortland that could have either distracted the team or bloated their heads.
Fortunately, it looks like...
Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow? How about Greg McElroy.
McElroy became the first quarterback to lead the New York Jets into the end zone this preseason in a 28-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night.
Sanchez, Tebow and most of the Jets starters didn't play in this battle between backups and guys fighting for roster spots.
Michael Vick and all of Philadelphia's...
