The Football Fan Spot:
New York Jets (3-6) at St. Louis Rams (3-5)
Someone check me for a concussion because I really like the Jets this week. The Jets are one of two teams I have not picked to cover once this year, along with the Bengals. Yes, their fans hate me. It may seem weird that this is the week I’m going with the Jets because they seem to be at their lowest point, given all that’s happened in the last week.
However, the Jets always seem to be at their best when they’re at their lowest point. Remember when neither their 1st nor 2nd team offense scored a touchdown all preseason and they were the laughing stock of the football world and then week 1 they crushed the Bills? Remember when they got shut out by the 49ers and then covered in 3 straight weeks? With the team now at 3-6, with all their locker room dirty laundry being aired to the media over the past week, coming off a two straight losses of 21 or more, the Jets are now at their lowest point.
Speaking off 2 straight losses of 21 or more, team...

LaDainian Tomlinson said Wednesday that he thinks he knows the identities of at least two of the Jets players who anonymously savaged Tim Tebow.
On Wednesday, members of the New York Jets locker room semi-shocked the world with their shots against backup quarterback Tim Tebow.
Since that initial salvo, various members of the team (including Tebow) have weighed in on the matter but nobody’s words seem to feel as honest as running back Shonn Greene’s.

I am pretty sure I lost a bet earlier this season when I predicted Mark Sanchez would be benched by Week 10.
At the start of the 2012 season, things were looking okay for the Jets. All they really needed to focus on is getting through a tough first half, fix mistakes during the bye, and storm through a much easier second-half schedule.
But, the Jets did not do what they needed to...
Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots. After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez...
Per a report from CNN’s Sports Illustrated, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks the player(s) who called Tim Tebow “terrible” are “a cowardly thing.” Ryans comments are in response to an earlier report of over a dozen Jets players and members of the organization anonymously criticizing Tebow. Ryan is absolutely right; if you want to call Tebow terrible, be like the...
Neither the Jets nor the Rams have been impressive of late. It’s been over a month since either team has earned a win. On paper, both teams leave a lot to be desired but there are few factors that will sway the odds in the Rams’ favor when New York travels to St. Louis. Here are my three bold predictions for the game.1. The Jets’ will help St. Louis get an easy win.On the stat...
Hyperbolic headline aside, Matt Slauson isn’t actually a hero. In fact, after the dirty block that he put on Brian Cushing that ended the Texans linebacker’s season earlier this year, he might actually be an asshole. However, I nominate Matt Slauson for BESTEST JERKYFACE EVER for being the one teammate willing to go on the record bashing Tim Tebow to the New York Daily News....
(Eds: Corrects Keller's first name to Dustin in seventh paragraph. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Jets coach Rex Ryan is so competitive that he'd play Satan at quarterback if he was convinced the move would help his team win.
But for some reason, he's drawn the line at Tim Tebow.
On any other team, with any other backup waiting in the wings, there...

It’s that time of year again, when Tim Tebow finds a way into the national spotlight, despite harsh criticism from his skeptics. The Jets backup quarterback hasn’t played much this season and yet has still managed to make the back […]
