In separate interviews with the Newark Star-Ledger, both Vladimir Ducasse and Joe McKnight admit this is a “make or break” year for them. Both Jets are heading into their 3rd seasons in the NFL, going in the 2nd and 4th rounds respectively in 2010. Ducasse is a versatile player who has not been able to crack the starting lineup anywhere, including right tackle, where the terrible Wayne Hunter allowed 11 sacks last year. He’s currently a reserve guard.
McKnight, meanwhile, has averaged just 3.9 YPC in his career, including 3.1 YPC last year, on just 82 carries. McKnight is currently the #2 back behind Shonn Greene, an uninspiring lead back on a run heavy offense, but lacks talent and showed up to OTAs out of shape this offseason. I would not be surprised at all if neither of these players were with the Jets in 2013.

Comparing AFC East Teams To The Corleone...
The general consensus from the mainstream media about the 2012 New York Jets isn’t positive. We have seen them ranked as low as 27th in Power Rankings by Evan Silva of Rotoworld, along with most commentators pegging them for 3rd or 4th in the AFC East behind Buffalo and in some cases behind Miami. This line of thinking isn’t that surprising when you step back and consider a...
LaDainian Tomlinson lashed out his feelings about Santonio Holmes in a guest appearance on NFL Network on host Rich Eisen’s podcast. Tomlinson spoke about the trouble could that could happen if Holmes doesn’t see the ball more in 2012.
It wasn't the first time she's done it, but Lindsey Vonn seized the moment and fittingly Tebowed after she presented Tim Tebow with the ESPY for "Best Moment."
DON'T THINK ABOUT IT
Reports are that Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez hired five uniformed Orange County Sheriff’s Department deputies for his camp in California to keep curious onlookers at bay.
Now that LaDainian Tomlinson is officially retired and a former-Jet, he can say negative things about the team without it affecting him. In one of his first appearances since his retirement ceremony, Tomlinson appeared on Rich Eisen’s podcast and spoke about, among other things, the Jets and their transition to a more run first offense this year. The Jets have talked about getting...
The New York Jets had an average 2011 season and in order for them to be above average, the entire team has to play at the same level as offensive lineman D’Brickashaw Ferguson, who has been one of the past offensive tackles the last three years. Because of his efforts, Ferguson comes in at No. 97 on GridironGrit.com’s new list of the Top 100 Players of 2012.
Ferguson was raised...

Tim Tebow and Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas enjoyed a big win Wedenesday night at the ESPY Awards. They won the award for Best Moment for their 80-yard touchdown to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime in the AFC Wild-Card Game.

Toward the latter part of last season, Tim Tebow helped Demaryius Thomas make a name for himself. Though Tebow is oft-criticized for his passing skills — or lackthereof — he’s able to uncork a pretty decent deep ball, and Thomas, a speedster, has an uncanny way of getting open downfield.
During their improbable playoff run, the two connected on several big plays, most notably...
