New York Jets
Much has been made about the Jets’ quarterback carousel over the past few weeks, but no amount of change under center will matter unless something changes along that offensive line.
Rex Ryan finally made the move away from Mark Sanchez last week, after a five-turnover debacle all but ended his stay in New York. The Jets decided to instead go with second-year quarterback Greg McElroy against the Chargers on Sunday, and he looked good, at least when he was standing.
McElroy completed 14 of his 24 passes for 185 yards and one interception in the loss, but the quarterback also faced plenty of adversity during his first career NFL start. That adversity came in the form of Chargers defenders, who were able to lay 16 good hits on McElroy and sacked the young signal-caller 11 times on the afternoon.
Now, if that doesn’t top as the worst effort by an offensive line ever, then I don’t know what would. What makes matters even worse is that the Jets’ offensive line features three Pro Bowlers (D...

Was Sunday the official start of the Greg McElroy era in New York? Chances are the New York Jets will pursue another option at starting quarterback when the offseason begins, which means there is also a good chance Mark Sanchez may have taken his last snap with the team. Otherwise, it would probably cost you more than $10 for his Jets jersey.
As you can see from the photo above...
Jets quarterback Greg McElroy spent as much time on the ground as he did upright Sunday against the Chargers. New York's offensive line allowed a season-worst 11 sacks in the 27-17 loss.Fantasy Spin:McElroy may have been a slight improvement over Mark Sanchez but he certainly wasn't great on Sunday (14-for-24, 185 yards and an interception). Luckily he has a pretty favorable...

Well the Mayans may have spared the rest of the world, but the NY Jets have not so lucky. The Jets’ DEMISE is in FULL BLOOM and Patriots fans are LOVING IT UP! New England fans still remember with great DISDAIN, Gang Green’s ARROGANCE after beating the Patriots in the 2010 playoffs.
Pats fans are doing “Braylon Edwards Back Flips” watching the NYJ...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, there’s virtually no trade market for either TIm Tebow and Mark Sanchez. If the Jets want to get rid of either player, they’re likely going to have to release them.
When Sanchez restructured his contract last year to provide cap relief to the team, the new contract language effectively tied the struggling passer to New York through...
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...
Jets "ridiculous" offensive line play gives team their ninth loss. Florham Park, N.J.: Quarterback Greg McElroy couldn't overcome poor offensive line play in his first career start in the NFL. The Jets offensive line gave up 11 (one shy of the NFL record) sacks in the 27-17 loss against the San Diego Chargers."It was great on their part, but ridiculous on our...

One after another, the San Diego Chargers barreled into Greg McElroy and slammed him to the turf.
A whopping 11 times.
That's a lot of bruises for the New York Jets' new - and sore - starting quarterback.
Led by Kendall Reyes' 3 1/2 sacks, the Chargers made things downright miserable for McElroy, tying the team record for sacks in a 27-17 victory Sunday.
BY NICK ST. DENISThe New York Jets' drama play has come full circle, with quarterback Mark Sanchez getting benched for Greg McElroy following a five-turnover performance against the lowly Tennessee Titans that saw Gang Green get eliminated from playoff contention.The sensationalistic media has gotten everything they can out of a team that just wasn't very good to begin with...
The San Diego Chargers (6-9) beat the New York Jets (6-9) 27-17, yesterday at MetLife Stadium from East Rutherford, NJ.
The last home game of the season ends badly for the Jets as their starting third stringer QB Greg McElroy got sacked eleven times.

New York Jets Season wrapped up in 4 minutes The entire season for the New York Jets has been nothing more than an blooper reel, but here is their embarrassing season compacted into a four minute video. This video has everything from Mark Sanchez’s classic butt fumble to Santonio Holmes giving the 49ers an early [...]
It’s a shame that the Jets and Jaguars already had their meeting this season, because right now would have been perfect for maximized levels of abject derpitude. Granted, there’s no Mark Sanchez starting because he already ensured he’ll be a backup somewhere else next season with a five-turnover performance last Monday night that bounced New York from marginal playoff contention...
It seems this guy might’ve had a skunked beer and an undercooked brat before Sunday’s Jets-Chargers game. Listen closely – one of the play-by-play crew members mentions it’s just the first quarter when Artie starts blowing projectile puke.
It’s not like Artie would be puking over the Jets play in the first.
The Jets had a 14-7 lead and even went to half at 14-10 over the...
San Diego Chargers (5-9) at New York Jets (6-8)
Ugh. How am I supposed to pick between these two teams? The Chargers have been incredibly inconsistent and the Jets are a mediocre at best team who has just been eliminated from the playoff race making a controversial move to start a former 7th round pick who has never made an NFL start. There’s a lot of conflicting stuff on both...
Jason La Confora is reporting the New York Jets are starting the process of acquiring a new General Manager. Good news, right? Wrong. Woody Johnson apparently wants the new GM to work with Mike Tannenbaum who will be demoted to a salary cap management type position. Not surprisingly, no credible candidates are interested in such a foolish arrangement.
I love writing and sometimes...
