8/8/12 The Jets turned down HBO's Hard Knocks, but now they got ESPN's Sal Paolantonio on the sideline standing so close he's getting hit with errant footballs and reporting scuffles between backup players fighting for a job.  This isn't news anyway: backup players fight for jobs, sometimes escalating into post-whistle fights ... for every football team.  They're each trying to make an NFL ball club and pick up a contract.  Now we got "Tebow this and Sanchez that." I thought this was the exact type of **** we wanted to avoid.  Invite the media in, and they turn the place into the Bronx Zoo.  Team chemistry was clearly an issue last year.  Then we say no to Hard Knocks, and allow ESPN to do nonstop coverage and report everything down to Tim Tebow's bowel movements.  How can this not be a distraction? And I think we're still going to make the playoffs, but this doesn't help.  Why can't they understand that?

New York Jets: Offensive Depth Still Area Of Concern

There is a fine line between having confidence in your young players and being ignorant about the depth on your roster. The New York Jets are walking that line right now.
