MetLife Stadium: Things were looking up.  Fans almost let out that sigh of relief.With 6:47 left in the first half—and the looming stat of being the only team in the NFL not to have scored a touchdown this preseason—rookie Quinton Coples stripped a stumbling Cam Newton, leading to Mark Sanchez and the offense taking over at the Panthers 12-yard line.Looking to finally reach pay dirt, the Jets ran three plays inside the Panthers 10 yard line resulting in five yards.  After a Folk field goal and a three and out forced by the defense, Sanchez looked to extend their...

Fireman Ed says Jets Players not Helping Sanchez out

I didn’t go to any preseason games and apparently neither did Fireman Ed.  According to his tweets this morning, he never goes and he never worries about the preseason results. Mark Sanchez played a pretty good game in my eyes and Ed believes that his teammates need to help him out.  That starts with the line protection and goes all the way to the receivers running the correct...

New York Jets: Offensive-Line Shuffle

  Dear New York Jets, Please excuse Mark from football practice until you can provide pass protection for him so that he may live to see his 26th birthday. Signed, Sanchez’ mother To say that the Jets’ offensive line has played horribly would be an understatement. Abysmal seems appropriate as they have given up 12 sacks in two preseason games. RT Wayne Hunter has been benched...

Panthers hold off Jets in preseason win

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Mark Sanchez looked pretty good for nearly three quarters. He just couldn't get the New York Jets into the end zone -- again. Tim Tebow had the play of the game, but also couldn't get that elusive preseason touchdown for the Jets. Tebow got the fans fired up with a dazzling 20-yard run in the fourth quarter, but threw an interception three...

QB Newton: Big Tebow fan, downplays reunion

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- While Cam Newton says he's a big Tim Tebow fan, he downplayed the reunion on Sunday night with his former college teammate. Newton said his focus this week isn't on renewing old friendships but rather on continuing to build momentum on offense when the Panthers (No. 20 in the AP Pro32) visit the New York Jets in what'll certainly be his last significant...

Carolina Panthers Can Overtake Saints & Win NFC South

The NFC South is arguably one of the tougher divisions in the NFL for 2012.  This division is also one of the toughest to predict.New Orleans and Atlanta have dominated this division the last several years, but now the Panthers could be back in championship form thanks to their quarterback, Cam Newton, who shattered many rookie quarterback records last year.Week 2 in the NFL...

New York Jets: Offense Takes Small Steps Forward

With the New York Jets' offense failing to score a touchdown through Week 1 of the preseason, the offense did make some strides last night.Their offensive line looked stronger and was able to protect Mark Sanchez for the most part.With Wayne Hunter going to the bench, newly promoted right tackle Austin Howard has answered critics by showing that he is quite capable of playing...

Every NFL Offensive Line Sucks

Looking at the NFC East right now, you could probably make a convincing argument that the weakest unit on all four teams in that division is the offensive line.  In New York, Eli Manning's blind side is in trouble with Will Beatty hurt and Mark Sanchez's front side is in jeopardy as the Jets look for a right tackle solution not named Wayne Hunter.  Have...

New York Jets: END ZONE ENVY

GAME RECAP:  If the game against the Carolina Panthers was truly the last dress rehearsal before the regular season, I’m not impressed with what will-be the finished product as the Jets went yet another game without a touchdown.  Granted, the Jets aren’t running the offense the way they say they will in the regular season, but the execution of the plays they are running is...

Philadelphia Eagles: Predicting Weeks 11-17

Week 12: Eagles vs PanthersOnce again, it looks like the Eagles have another tough opponent. Thankfully it's another home game so hopefully that will have some advantage for the Birds. While I believe, like in RGIII's case, practicing against Vick everyday will help the Eagles greatly. Unfortunately Cam Newton stands at a lengthy 6'5" while Vick stands at 6'0...

NFL Preseason Week 3: Sunday Night Notes

Only two games on the card Sunday night but they both involved interesting storylines.Peyton Manning looked sharp in his 3rd preseason game with the Broncos.Also just as interesting, but perhaps for different reasons, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow continued to struggle in their 3rd preseason outing with the Jets.  Peyton and his Horses look ready for Week 1, while Mark and Timmy have...

The Jets are in trouble with their anemic offense

The New York Jets have a major problem. They've played three preseason games, and they still haven't put the ball in the endzone. At this point, it's hard to imagine Tony Sparano feeling comfortable about his job security as the Jets prepare for their final preseason game against the Eagles. Last night's game against Carolina showed us a few things. First off...
