Despite their shortcomings this season, the New York Jets face a pretty workable task Sunday in the Jacksonville Jaguars.However, the Jaguars have one thing going for them -- their backup quarterback. Jacksonville signal-caller Chad Henne, who took over under center a few weeks ago for the injured Blaine Gabbert, is slated to face a familiar foe this week -- one he should have a decent amount of confidence against. Henne, a former starting quarterback for the Miami Dolphins, has thrown six touchdowns to just a single interception in his career against the Jets, going 3-1 in the process in games spanning 2009-10.In fact, Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, who was Henne's head coach during his time in Miami, recruited Henne last offseason to back up Mark Sanchez."Tony called me as soon as free agency opened," Henne said, according to the NY Post. “Obviously Mark signed his contract before that, but they still were interested and wanted to get me in on a visit.“But ...

Preview: Jets (5-7) @ Jaguars (2-10)

This week the Jets travel to Tim Tebow's hometown to play the Jaguars, unfortunately for the legion of Tebow supporters who undoubtedly wanted to line up to watch him play quarterback, equally unfortunate for many Jet fans that Greg McElroy won't be getting the start either, as you know, since it's all that anyone has talked about the entire week, Mark Sanchez will remain...

Fantasy Football News – Cecil Shorts Ruled OUT For Week 14

Fantasy Football News - The Jacksonville Jaguars have ruled OUT Cecil Shorts for their week 14 contest after suffering a concussion in the previous game. He was still experiencing concussion symptoms at mid-week, so his availability for week 15 should be considered questionable also.

Keller, Tebow uncertain vs. Jags

New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller sat out practice for the second straight day with a sprained left ankle, leaving his status for the team's game at Jacksonville on Sunday uncertain.

Jets Wanted Chad Henne, Not Tim Tebow, to Compete With Mark Sanchez for Quarterback Job

The quarterback controversy in New York appears to have no end in sight. And another wrinkle just made it even more complicated. Mark Sanchez is keeping his starting job, for now. But after being benched for third-stringer Greg McElroy last week, and chants for Tim Tebow continuing to fill the stands at MetLife Stadium, Sanchez may not have that job for very long. Now, as the Jets...

Examining the Jets Offensive Line Over the Years

Florham Park, NJ - If you ever get a chance to walk into an NFL locker room you won't be able to avoid the sight of a few gigantic 300 pound plus offensive linemen, it'd be impossible not to notice them as they waddle around room. The irony of course is how often they go unnoticed on the field, yes they are still giants among the other players, but they stay packed in tight...

Jets find hero in unlikely third choicer

If one incident proved this week that, while class may be permanent form is certainly a favourable attribute to have, it was in New York as the Jets beat Arizona thanks to the unlikeliest of players. The Jets, on a 4-7 record heading into the game and outsiders in the NFL betting odds thanks to having one of the worst offences in the NFL, overcame fellow strugglers Arizona 7-6 in...

Authorities have raided northeast Indiana properties owned by former New York Jets offensive lineman Jason Fabini and his brother, but the retired player said he's not the focus of the investigation.

Turn On The Jets NFL Week 14 Best Bets

Week 13 Record: 0-3 Season Record: 13-24-2 Well, at least I’m not in last place in The Race For The Steak (sorry, Joe). At this point my picks are becoming valuable, because you can win some money if you do the exact opposite of what I say. I’m sort of like the new Evan Silva. This sucks. Before we get to my picks, a few things swirling around my mind other than football, because...
