New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan indicated that it’s ” a possibility that Tim Tebow could get some snaps at running back this week with both Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight banged up.As athletic as Tebow is, I can’t imagine him being very effective with how poorly the Jets’ offensive line has been playing.

No Revis, no problem?

When Darrelle Revis went down for the season.. fine I'll admit it. I was so excited. Listen, I never root for injuries, but when one as significant as that happens, to the team I hate the most? Yeah, I was excited! However, it hasn't really had the kind of impact I was hoping for. Have the Jets gone in the tubes? Not really, not yet anyway. If the Patriots beat them this...

New York Jets Keys to the Game: Week 7 vs. the New England Patriots

1. Contain Rob Gronkowski - Gronkowski absolutely murdered the Jets last year, highlighted by his posting eight catches for 113 yards and two scores in their second meeting, a 37-16 Patriots blowout victory. If the Jets want to win, they’re going to have to find a way to contain Gronk. That probably means a heavy dose of LaRon Landry and Antonio Allen covering Gronkowski, if the...
