It's called "Juice This." Of course we recruited The Juice! (Credit) Juice This rolls into Year III with a mission in mind: to stop lying that there was ever a Year I or Year II. However, with the New York Jets gearing up for another run at the Super Bowl (tickets, that is), it’s time to take stock of this year’s contenders. And seeing as we haven’t got a clue as to who they are (Buffalo? Cincinnati? Baltimore? Not this year), we’ll get you caught up on all things football, including: O.J.’s latest trial; Tim Tebow’s best move; and the Vikings' new playpen. Bonus: why Denver sucks (hint, time to Manning up!). *** THE JUICE IS ON What better way to lead off Juice This than with the Juice that was, O.J. Simpson. Seems he’s filed for a new trial, written a new book called How and Why I Did It and told the Buffalo Bills he’ll be happy to come back for their next Super Bowl Defeat Anniversary celebration (this year and next year and those anniversaries are out of their twenties). Except they’re not having those celebrations because they just remembered they lost four straight times in the Big One. But good luck, O.J., with the trial thing in Vegas. *** TEBOW TIME While Tim Tebow mulls whether to sign with the Minnesota Vikings (they need a punter), Giants’ owner Steve Tisch is saying his team couldn’t help but chuckle last year during training camp when the Jets got all the media attention with Tebow in camp. (Psst…it’s because they were jealous.) But that aside, the Giants’ quarterback didn’t exactly have a career year either, lack of preseason media attention notwithstanding. So were they under the radar thanks to Tebow? More like under the thumb of the rest of the NFL as lazy, overrated defending champs. Maybe the Giants shouldn’t worry this year about what training camp Tebow is in. Maybe the Giants should just worry. *** WORST TO FIRST Sports Illustrated is trying to figure out which teams have the best shot at going from worst to first this year. Buffalo? Cleveland? Philadelphia? Kansas City? Here at Juice This, we’re thinking Denver, because they played like the worst team in football during the playoffs and Peyton Manning is this year’s most-overrated player (according to the Brian Urlacher Overrating Service). *** VIKINGS GET A NEW HOUSE The Vikings new stadium, at least according to the new renderings, is the ultimate playpen of the western world, capable of hosting any number of events (except a Super Bowl with the Vikings in it). It’s so cool, Brett Favre is considering coming out of retirement. Forget it, Brett – it doesn’t open until 2016. *** SPEAKING OF FAVRE… ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, between lamentations over the Knicks, expressed the opinion that Brett Favre – future Hall-of-Famer and “junk” dealer Brett Favre – was a prima donna for the last five years of his career. And here at Juice This we’re thinking, only the last five? By: Howard Schlossberg Twitter: @HSchlossberg Sign up for our newsletter for daily updates from The Sports Post!
