Larry Brown Sports:
New York sports fans aren’t exactly the most patient bunch in America. They want results and they want them fast. When the Jets traded up in the first round to get Mark Sanchez four years ago, the mindset became Super Bowl or bust. Sanchez led the team to two AFC Championships in his first two seasons as starting quarterback, but last year was a disappointment. Despite the slide, Eli Manning said he is confident Sanchez has a bright future ahead of him.
Now that Manning is a two-time Super Bowl MVP, it’s easy to forget that he too has hit some of the lowest of lows during his eight-year career in New York.
“I don’t know if there was a date or a time,” Manning explained according to the NY Daily News. “My fourth year wasn’t so great in the regular season. Played well through the playoffs. The next year, we played pretty well. It’s kind of in the last two years, three years, I’ve gotten better and better and each year learned something or had something I needed to improve on.”

AROUND THE WEB
The Jets offense stumbled out the gates Friday night against the Bengals, recording -3 yards in three plays on the first drive and 38 yards in 11 plays on their second, both resulting in zero points. Mark Sanchez threw for 21 yards on four of six passing and was sacked twice.Tim Tebow had success scrambling for yards, but completed four of eight passes with an interception. Granted...
Eli Manning says that brother Peyton is the better quarterback. There wasn't a debate in the past, but there may be one now.
Mark Sanchez, the starting back-up QB for the New York Jets, has been battling Tim Tebow all summer long in Cortland. But it seems that he is taking control under center and in the huddle. Last season, he had to deal with Santonio Holmes running his mouth, but he wants everyone to know that he [...]
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH
Even though he's a 49er now and not playing in New York, ex-Giants running back Brandon Jacobs is still unable to hide his disdain for the Jets, calling the team a "circus."
Bart Scott has high expectations for Mark Sanchez, saying he wants the New York Jets quarterback to ''take the next step'' of becoming one of the top 10 players at his position.
The linebacker says Wednesday that there is a noticeable difference in how Sanchez carries himself as a leader this season, the quarterback's fourth in the NFL. Scott says Sanchez '...
"Third drive we started to move the ball a little bit. Got a little scramble there, channeling my inner Tebow and got a first down so that was good."
Those were New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez's remarks during a sideline interview in his team's first preseason game (and loss) against the Cincinnati Bengals. The off-the-cuff remarks were both humorous and...
When I wed my beautiful bride nearly a decade ago, I married into her rabid fanaticism for the Denver Broncos. I have adopted the team as my own. But never in our eight year marriage have both of us been so unexcited about an upcoming season at Mile High Stadium.
Peyton Manning is just not our guy.
I know he had a stellar career with the Indianapolis Colts, a Super Bowl champion...
For years Eli Manning has been living in his big brother’s shadow, NOT ANYMORE!! After dispatching the Patriots in Super Bowl 46, Peyton has been relegated to the second best “clutch” Manning in his own family. Eli has the composure and coolness to flourish under stressful conditions. The Giants were very close to not even qualifying for the playoffs but managed to squeak...
The New York Jets are going to have an extremely tough upcoming season. From a quarterback battle, no receivers you can count on, a poor defense, and a tough schedule The Jets are in store for a long rough season. Now I know they only played one pre-season game so far against the Cincinnati Bengals, but they didn’t really impress me at all in that game.
Let’s start off with the...

Over the past few weeks, Eli Manning of the New York Giants has been the talk around Albany. With the Giants fans crowding the city, almost all of them gathered around the University of Albany practice field, where the Giants have held training camp over the past few weeks. Everywhere the man in red went, so did the [...]
Thanks to Rob Iracrane via LarryBrownSports.com, above is a picture of Jets quarterback Tim Tebow holding a baby that is clearly not happy.
My guess is that the baby doesn’t like the fact that Tebow will be taking away from Mark Sanchez’s playing time. He has to be a Sanchez fan.
