"Gang Green" has been turning their fans red for years now. It has been said that the Jets are cursed. The worst part is when they look like they have gotten past all of the negatives and appear to be contenders. Then something inevitably happens, and wipes it all away.This year however, doesn't feel that bad. That is IF you prepared your mind for it. All the signs were there. A poor off season of drafting. A mind bending free agent acquisition. And a head coach thinking that not joking around would solve the problems with his team.Now we all see that a stoic straight face doesn't help your linebackers tackle, nor does it make your receivers catch the ball. Unfortunately, it doesn't help your quarterback reach his potential either. This is why Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, is on his way out the door . . . if he's lucky.Rex Ryan is a very likable guy.

Jets guard Matt Slauson: Tim Tebow is not an option

Is it time for a “Sanchez-ometer” in New York?

Tim Tebow threw his first pass of the year yesterday, a week later than I predicted.  Surprisingly he was able to complete it, leaving his success rate for the season at a very impressive 100%.  Unfortunately the 1-1 performance didn’t do much for his career completion percentage (aka the Tebometer), which is still only 47.5%. But the Jets backup QB can take solace in the fact...

NFL Rumors: Jets QB Mark Sanchez Does Not Feel Threatened By Tim Tebow, But Is He Simply In Denial?

The New York Jets may make a change for change’s sake. It is one of the worst thing that an NFL team can do in this day and age. They panic and make a rash decision based on the poor play of one player or on the desires of the fans. Generally speaking, the say when a coach or general manager listens to the fans, he will soon be sitting with them. But what if it is the owner making...

New York Jets add a new wide receiver, calm yourself

Are the New York Jets really setting up QB Mark Sanchez to fail? After learning that veteran WR Santonio Holmes has suffered a Lisfranc injury and will likely be out for the season, the Jets needed to add another receiver to the roster. The usual stable of veteran names cropped up; Plaxico Burress, Terrell Owens and Chad Johnson. New York has reportedly signed, wait for it……...

Santonio Holmes done for season with Lisfranc injury

Things keep getting worse for the New York Jets. First, Darrelle Revis, arguably the league's best CB goes down and is done for the season. Then they get absolutely beat down by the 49ers on Sunday, and now they learn that receiver Santonio Holmes will be out for the rest of the season, not a few weeks as many thought. Although is was floated around as a possibility, no one...
