Only in New York? Greg McElroy declared inactive for Jets after leading them to victory in week 13

Per multiple sources including Jason LaCanfora on twitter Tim Tebow is active today for the Jets. Tebow has been the second man on the Jets depth chart all year; so, maybe it was a ‘can’t lose your spot due to injury’ piece; maybe Rex Ryan thinks he’s their best backup quarterback; or maybe it was a marketing ploy by Woody Johnson and/or NFL higherups; either way, McElroy...

Patriots Fan’s Pleasure: The Jets Were Even A JOKE In The 80′s, See Mark Gastineau (PHOTO)

(PHOTO: Buzzfeed Sports) Wow, when I saw this poster of NY Jets linebacker Mark Gastineau from the 1980′s, I did TWO THINGS: Laughed my ASS off THREW UP in my mouth There is NO disputing that Gastineau was a great pass rusher, but he was the GEICO caveman before the GEICO caveman.
