Found October 07, 2012 on Helmet2Helmet:
While the Jets refuse to make a switch at quarterback, choosing to stick with Mark Sanchez, they’re going to do what they can to get his backup on the field. During FOX’s NFL Sunday pregame show, league insider Jay Glazer reported the Jets will use Tim Tebow “a lot more” on Monday Night Football versus the Texans. Glazer noted that Tebow was given more practice reps this week, as the team copes with injuries to several of its key offensive players, including receiver Santonio Holmes and tight end Dustin Keller. New York, though, considers itself to be in a “catch-22.” When Tebow is brought into the game, it will be interpreted as them “yanking” Sanchez. In reality, it’d be attempting to jump-start a woefully stagnant offense. At least, that’s how they’re spinning it. It’s become clear that the Jets want to incorporate Tebow without igniting a full-fledged controversy, something that’s likely more theoretical than practical considering his cult-like following and the ravenous local me

The "Monday Night Tebow" Tebow Tracker

Last night's Texans-Jets game wasn't just an opportunity for the country to see the NFL's best team in the national spotlight. (That would be the Texans in case you were wondering.) No. Naturally, with the New York Jets involved, it was an opportunity to revisit TebowMania. Shockingly, ESPN was realtively reserved yesterday compared to their summer when SportsCenter...

NFL Rumors: Tim Tebow To Get Opportunity To Surpass Mark Sanchez As Jets Starting QB On MNF?

The New York Jets will take on the Houston Texans on Monday Night Football, and they will do so with Mark Sanchez as the starting quarterback. How much longer he holds that position atop the Jets’ depth chart remains to be seen. New York signed Sanchez to a ridiculous contract extension this offseason, one in which they may be regretting right now. He has played rather poorly to...

Texans-Jets Live Blog, First Half

If you happen to enjoy watching the Jets get annihilated so much that you will listen through three hours of Tebow talk to get it, then I suppose this evening will be a celebration for you. Otherwise, it’s really a zero-sum contest for neutral observers. The Texans winning a huge boring blowout is the best possible outcome. Anything less than that and the narrative will be flooded...

Tebow Time?

Sing it with me New York Jets’ fans – “Oh eee oh, Tee Bow. Oh eee oh, Tee Bow.” The chant NFL Network talking heads Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders used during Tim Tebow’s rise to stardom (sort of) last year is poised to make its return soon. With the Jets’ offense in shambles, the only way to save the season may be to turn to the former Florida Gator. It is going to have to...

Houston Texans at New York Jets Preview and Prediction

After Arizona’s loss on Thursday night, the Texans, along with the Falcons, are one of the two undefeated teams left in the NFL. Tonight, they take on the 2-2 Jets, who are coming into this game after a 34-0 loss to San Francisco last week. The calls for Tim Tebow will surely be heard tonight if Mark Sanchez struggles. Houston and New York square off tonight on Monday Night Football...

Jets' many flaws clear in loss to Texans

Mark Sanchez had his moments - good and bad - for the Jets. Tim Tebow, too. But some of the Jets' biggest flaws were on full display in their 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans. They couldn't run the ball, the defense couldn't stop the run and Tebow still isn't running on the field much. Rex Ryan says the Jets need to get their running game going for the offense to...

Interview with Rob Carpenter: Former Jet WR

Rob Carpenter: Former New York Jet If you’re a New York Jets fan, you probably have a lot of concerns right now. Injuries have sidelined Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes for the season, many fans and media are calling for Tebow to start, Mike Tannenbaum’s job may be on the line, and the list goes on and on. I recently spoke with former New York Jets wide receiver, Rob Carpenter...

Report: Jets plan on using Tim Tebow more on Monday night

According to Mike Florio of, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the New York Jets plan on using Tim Tebow more on Monday night against the Texans. Glazer also says that Tebow got more practice time this past week .  I wonder how much of that time was spent under center.  Mark Sanchez has to be on thin ice right now.

What isn’t there to say that’s already been said about this victory for the Colts? Indianapolis played on emotion and had the heart of a champion to get the “W.”

N.Y. Jets Players Taking Bets That Mark Sanchez Will Be Benched During Match-Up Against Texans

Monday Night Football: Texans, Jets Heading in Opposite Directions

With what looked like a decent Monday Night Football match up on paper when the 2012 NFL schedule was first released, the Texans at the Jets now looks like it could see the mercy rule invoked. With the Texans on the rise, consistently beating teams by double digits, the flailing Jets, who were embarrassed at home last week by a 34-0 thrashing, look to be heading in the opposite direction...
