Mark Sanchez, QB, New York Jets
FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS
Heading into 2012 the question wasn’t whether or not Mark Sanchez belonged on your fantasy roster, it was when should you add him in your draft. Of course we are talking deeper leagues there and not the star-studded lineups that one would possess in a 8-team league, but you get the drift. In 2011 he combined for a total of 32 touchdowns while accumulating almost 3,600 all-purpose yards to go along with only 18 interceptions. Pretty solid stats for a quarterback who has been made fun of more than most in the league. Well, 2012 wasn’t as kind to Sanchez or his fantasy owners as we had hoped.
Now I don’t know if it has anything to do with the fact that the New York Jets decided to bring on Tim Tebow during the off-season, but Sanchez struggled from the get go, couldn’t get out of the shadow of all of the cameras along with the journalists asking him time aft...

Tim Tebow is coming off the depth chart and the New York Jets are in need of a backup QB for Mark Sanchez. They're reportedly looking to add two QBs in the offseason, with one of them likely being David Garrard.
A source, via Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com, says "the Jets have kept open the lines of communication with free-agent QB David Garrard, but no deal is imminent...
Former Wisconsin soccer player Lauren Silberman tried out for the big boys league today at an NFL regional scouting combine, but her big day only lasted two kicks. Her first kickoff try at the New York Jets practice field went 19 yards, as more than two dozen media, including E! Entertainment network looked on.
According to the New York Post, Jets owner Woody Johnson, head coach Rex Ryan and general manager John Idzik will speak with season ticket holders on a conference call that’s scheduled for today.
Like any other organization, the Jets want to listen to their fans, the problem is they still seem to have no idea how to end the circus they created last offseason.
“I think they did...
NFL free agency kicks off on March 12th, only 8 days from today. The New York Jets are not expected to be overly active considering their salary cap situation. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, considering how the team has been run in previous years, they need to sit out the first wave of overpaid free agents and settle for 2nd and 3rd tier players who they can get at bargain...
Here’s a brief synopsis of the Tim Tebow experience in New York:
In March of 2011, Tebow was traded to the Jets and boy was he excited to be in New York.
He reportedly believed that he could beat out Mark Sanchez for the starting job, but things began to head south pretty early for Tebow.
Then, former NFL player after former NFL player began to question why the Jets even traded...
In this video posted to Youtube on Monday, Seahawks fullback Michael Robinson interviews Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who says it really 'hit home' when he heard the news that the Jets were trying to shop him at the NFL Combine.
“I’m a competitor,” Revis said. “I’m always trying to compete, whether it’s on or off the field. This hit home. This definitely...
If the only reason the Jets acquired Tim Tebow was to have him be a publicity draw, then it only makes sense that the team would like to get a few more rounds out of the dog and pony show before releasing or trading the backup quarterback.
Jets general manager John Idzik left that possibility open this week, saying on a conference call with Jets fans Monday that Tebow will remain...

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk writes that a trade for CB Darrelle Revis may not come until about a week or so before the NFL Draft.
Florio mentions that NFL teams would likely consider all of their options in the free agency before deciding to get seriously involved in a trade for Revis. On top of that, Revis would be able to demonstrate that his torn ACL has improving as expected...
Revis Island appears to be moving to a new city in 2013. One source tells Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News that it’s only a matter of time until the New York Jets trade Darrelle Revis.
“He’s gone,” the source said. “This is happening. They’re moving him. They can’t keep him. They’re rebuilding. They’re starting fresh.”
Two or three teams are prepared...
