The next General Manager of the New York Jets will immediately face a highly scrutinized press conference, where he will answer to a group of bitter beat writers and angry,anxious fans. In hopes of him succeeding and seeing our generally miserable fan-base have something to be happy about, I have prepared the following suggested comments for his first press conference -

But, as it is my job to do so, I will bring you my final Seattle Seahawks week that was piece for the 2012 NFL football season.

Things may have gone horribly for Tim Tebow during his time with the New York Jets thus far, but he is still a competitor. Tebow is only 25 years old and led the Denver Broncos to a postseason berth and a first-round playoff win last year. Make no mistake about it — he still wants to start.
