New York Sports-Kings:
“At my signal, unleash hell”. For the New York Jets and Mark Sanchez, hell arrives Sunday when Mario Williams and the Buffalo Bills come to town. A nightmare of epic proportion may ensue for Sanchez as he must rely on RT Austin Howard for protection. Howard gets only his second NFL career start and faces Williams fresh off his $100 million contract. The Bills will exploit this mismatch unmercifully. Howard will need assistance containing the onslaught of pass rushing terror, otherwise, look for Sanchez to be sacked multiple times, hurried, and picked off and the Tebow chants to begin.
To much fanfare, the Jets will finally reveal the Wildcat and Tim Tebow. Expect the Bills to be fully prepared defensively as their quarterback coach, David Lee, is the person who introduced the Wildcat to Tony Sparano in Miami. So the surprise factor is nil and any success on Wildcat plays hinge on Tebow’s sheer athleticism. Other athletic, yet unpolished players to watch for are rookies WR Stephen Hill and DE Quinton Coples. Hill presents a tremendous physical size advantage against the Bills small cornerbacks, but he can not drop passes thrown his way. The play of Coples has been the one bright spot for the Jets this preseason. He had 4.5 sacks, performing like a gladiator.
In the movie Gladiator, Maximus says, “Whatever comes out of these gates, we’ve got a better chance of survival if we work together. Do you understand? If we stay together we survive”. The Jets may survive on Sunday, but can they win?

Mark Sanchez isn't running from his critics, instead the Jets starting signal-caller is looking to rally his teammates in preparation for Sunday's season opener.
How did Mark Sanchez react to the news that the Jets had acquired Tim Tebow? Maybe not quite as well as we've been led to believe.
The good folks at NOC TV have created a nifty Tebow/Sanchez-themed spin on Maroon 5′s “Payphone”. Check out the below video of a song that you really never want to hear, but the video makes it worth it.

Mark Sanchez threw three touchdown passes, including two to rookie Stephen Hill, and the New York Jets eased concerns about their offense with a 48-28 rout of the Buffalo Bills on Sunday.
The Jets sprinkled in their wildcat package with Tim Tebow, who was mostly quiet but recovered a late onside kick by Buffalo, and Jeremy Kerley had a touchdown catch and a punt return for a score...
The Jets haven't even opened their regular season, the circus is already in full effect. The biggest storyline for this year's version of Gang Green centers around the men under center -- the quarterbacks. The Jets grabbed back page supremacy this offseason by trading for Tim Tebow. It was a move that garnered plenty of fanfare, while also putting some pressure on incumbent...

A couple of days ago, New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes came out and stated that quarterback Mark Sanchez was rattled when Tim Tebow was acquired in the offseason.
Sanchez went on the radio and told Larry Hardesty of ESPN New York 98.7-FM that Holmes made everything seem more dramatic than it really was.
“I think (Holmes) made it a little more dramatic...
The New York Jets kick off the season tomorrow versus the Buffalo Bills. I can’t say that I’m expecting much from them this season, but we can get a lot answered in the first game. So here we go…
There’s certain things to watch out for during this first game. Mostly what the offense does, but let’s dig in a little deeper.
1) Mark Sanchez — Mark Sanchez is in what to me...
Mario Williams had a quiet day in his debut for the Buffalo Bills - except when he complained about the replacement officials.
Ryan Fitzpatrick had a lousy day, throwing three interceptions that New York converted into 21 points Sunday in the Jets' 48-28 season-opening victory. Oh, and the Bills lost running back Fred Jackson to a knee injury.
It could be a long year in Buffalo...

Week 1 is often a surprise. Raise your hand, who had Kevin Ogletree? Exactly! So we will walk this precarious balance of who you should start. It gets harder, but that's half the fun. This is of course not telling you what you know. It is advising you on those of whom you maybe waffling. 5. DeAngelo WilliamsNormally I would not advise starting anyone in a running back by...

This Sunday, the Buffalo Bills kickoff their 2012 campaign against the New York Jets at 1 p.m. at Metlife Stadium. The Bills lost both contests last year to the Jets, but are looking for a playoff surge this year after some key acquisitions in free agency and the NFL Draft. The Jets...
No more training camp, no more preseason, no more waiting! The 2012 NFL season is upon us, replacement referees and all. Gang Green will open the season this Sunday at home against the Buffalo Bills, a team they swept in 2011. Looking to change their luck this time around, the Bills acquired some defensive muscle along their frontline in former Houston Texan & number one...
