Found September 01, 2012 on Football Nation:
The Jaguars have had two big problems over the last few seasons, starting quarterback and putting people in the seats. The Jaguars' attendance has been horrible and the quarterback play even worse.They had a chance to attain a quarterback that made the playoffs last season and is arguably the most popular athlete in the history of the state of Florida. Unfortunately, the Jaguars decided against offering more than the New York Jets and lost out on Tim Tebow. That means the Jaguars are giving the reigns to Gabbert again and without Maurice Jones-Drew, due to holdout (as of this article), the attendance at EverBank Field could be embarrassing.  This all creates the significance of a Week 14 game between the Jags and the Jets. Tebow, who lived in Jacksonville, will be returning home, and in this humble writer's opinion, starting against Jacksonville on the team he supposedly chose.Tebow will not be the only storyline in Week 14, by then we should know if Gabbert is the quarterba...

Theismann: Sanchez is too nice to Tebow

Former Redskins quarterback Joe Theismann made it clear he is tired of Mark Sanchez being a nice guy when it comes to Tim Tebow's presence on the New York Jets. Theismann told WFAN yesterday that it's time for Sanchez to take a stand for himself and stop singing Kumbaya with his backup quarterback. "This strikes at the heart of Mark Sanchez's pride,"...

Woody Johnson can’t get enough of Tim Tebow

A while ago, Joe Namath said that the Jets were more interested in making headlines than winning football games. As if there needed to be any more proof as to why Namath was right… enter team owner Woody Johnson. Johnson reportedly told the New York Daily News that you can “never have enough Tebow”. Johnson was asked if he felt like the Jets preseason offensive struggles would...

New York Jets Preview

  Hey, so my name is Michael and I’ll be giving my take on the Jets. With the season just around the corner I figured now would be a good time to preview the season. Just so we’re clear I’m not a Jets fan. The Jets would go undefeated this year if they let Tim Tebow start. Since, you already know, all he does is win! Ask him to throw a ten yard pass and he’ll laugh at you...

Happy Hour – AFC East Preview

The New England Patriots have run the AFC East for what seems like an eternity. The New York Jets appeared ready to challenge their supremacy, but the circus turned into a freak show last year.

New York Jets Will Not Be a Laughingstock After Dismal Preseason

The New York Jets finally scored a touchdown in their fourth and last preseason game.After three poor offensive outings it looked as though the Jets may have to rely on defensive fumble recoveries or pick-sixes to put points on the board.However, the third-string offense did make it in to the end zone.Quarterback Greg McElroy threw a six-yard pass to running back Terrence Ganaway...

Positives from the New York Jets’ TD-Less Preseason

The New York Jets have gotten plenty of attention this preseason, but none of it has been particularly positive. Everybody has heard about the team’s struggles to reach the endzone in their first three fake games, which came off the heels of an ESPN love fest at training camp in Cortland that could have either distracted the team or bloated their heads. Fortunately, it looks like...

McElroy throws Jets' only preseason TD

Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow? How about Greg McElroy. McElroy became the first quarterback to lead the New York Jets into the end zone this preseason in a 28-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night. Sanchez, Tebow and most of the Jets starters didn't play in this battle between backups and guys fighting for roster spots. Michael Vick and all of Philadelphia's...

Which rookie WR will have the best season?

Which rookie WR will have the best season? Rizzla: Earlier this offseason I would have said Brian Quick in a heartbeat, but he has failed to ascend the depth chart as quickly as expected and Justin Blackmon has showed uncanny chemistry with Blaine Gabbert. Blackmon is a gamer and is playing in an offense that will cater to his skill set. The Jags should be behind plenty so Blackmon...

Sportscenter 2.0

Where are you Mackenzie McHale? ESPN needs you. As each month passes, I feel like the content produced by ESPN edges closer to a skewed, rating-driven approach as compared to balanced sports coverage. You can see why this would be a problem for a station dubbed as the “Worldwide Leader in Sports”, no? I’m sure she wouldn’t let Tebow in the rundown.   Perhaps there is some...
