Found November 20, 2012 on NFL Draft Zone:
One week after being a healthy scratch, Chris Givens started St. Louis’ Week 11 loss to the Jets, making four catches for 19 yards. This week was the first time since Week 3 Givens was held without a 50-yard reception. He nearly popped a big play on a kick return, but had a touchdown called back by a dubious holding penalty. However, Givens was clearly operating as the Rams’ No. 2 receiver ahead of Brandon Gibson, with his seven targets being second only to Danny Amendola’s 11. The New York Jets found a way to stop Chris Givens, and they did it by getting pressure on Sam Bradford.  Expect Givens to blow up again next week.

Definitive gallery of the NFL's greatest bro, Joe Namath

The NFL would be exponentially better from a media and soundbite standpoint if every team had its own Joe Namath. The legendary New York Jets and Los Angeles Rams quarterback is one of the true bright spots of the media circus that surrounds the team that plays in MetLife Stadium and doesn’t win Super Bowls, and I’m sure many Jets fans would disagree with that assessment, but...

Tim Tebow Sent Bouquet of Balloons Saying ‘You’re Special’ By Anonymous Fan (Photo)

Sometimes, we all just need a little pick-me-up at the office. Just something to know people care. Well, Tim Tebow got exactly that on Tuesday, as an “anonymous fan” sent him a bouquet of balloons bearing the phrase “You’re special” on them, according to the New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch. After Tebow’s previous week, in which he was bashed by anonymous teammates, it’s...

Game Recap: JETS 27 - RAMS 13

Jets keep postseason chances alive with win in St. Louis. After coming off their Bye week and losing big in Seattle, the Jets season seemed to been in a tailspin.  With two blowout losses in three weeks (MIA, BYE, SEA) and an article released that supposedly shed some light on a divided locker room, the Jets found an escape at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis."Our guys have...

Bart Scott failed to lead a media boycott and the Jets get even more absurd

The New York Jets actually won a game on Sunday.  (Yay!)  But of course, we can't go a week in the saga of the 2012 New York Jets without the biggest controversy and news story of the NFL season, win or lose.  The Jets are basically that one person in your life who can never be happy and depends on drama to surivive like it's oxygen.  You know those people.  You probably...

Trumaine Johnson the new nickel corner in St. Louis

According to the St. Louis Dispatch, Rams CB Bradley Fletcher has been demoted from nickel duties.Rookie Trumaine Johnson is now the Rams’ No. 3 cornerback behind Cortland Finnegan and Janoris Jenkins. According to coach Jeff Fisher, Fletcher will be the No. 4 corner in “three of the other packages.” It’s surprising because Fletcher has played well this season, but he was...

Turn On The Jets Stock Watch – Jets/Patriots Preview Edition

It’s a bit of a shame that the Jets play on a short week against the Pats this week because I would like to savor that curb-stomping Rex Ryan and his defense handed to former Jets coordinator Brian Schottenheimer’s current St. Louis Rams offense just a little bit longer. After all, we haven’t had all that much to be pleased with this year, right? It sure was sweet to be on...

No Huddle – Crucial Win In St. Louis Edition

4-6 is not the type of record to go celebrating in the Meatpacking District over. The way New York athletes often do after big victories. Ending a three game skid and moving beyond a “Terrible Tim” storm that threatened to derail focus on the Rams is. The Jets win over St Louis has seemingly calmed the Florham Park madness down for the time being but more importantly, has moved...

Tebometer rises… but should it?

In the New York Jets 27-13 victory over St. Louis on Sunday, Tim Tebow completed his one and only pass (although calling it a pass is a bit misleading, it was really just a forwarded lateral).   Amazingly Tebow has now put up a 100% completion rate in each of the last 3 games he has thrown the ball. However, his “pass” against the Rams netted the Jets -1 yard, so in reality...

New York Jets: Week 12 NFL Power Rankings (#26)

Last week: 27 (+1) Record: 4-6 The Jets were bound to bounce back last week. Teams that lose back-to-back games by 21 or more go 36-16 ATS in their next game. However, it still isn’t a promising sign going forward. For every one good Mark Sanchez performance, he has 3 bad ones. Don’t believe me? This year he’s had 3 games in which he’s had a QB rating over 90 in which he...

Tim Tebow receives balloons from random fan (Picture)

As we are only one day away from Thanksgiving, this story about New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is a rather-heartwarming one. According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, some random fan (or kissing-up teammate) sent Tebow the below bouquet of balloons back on Tuesday: We'll keep you updated if we find out anymore news....

Rex Ryan defends Bill Belichick... wait, what?!

The New York papers might want to make fun of Bill Belichick but Rex Ryan is having none of that.With his team trailing the Patriots in the division by essentially four games (Pats hold tie-breaker) he's not in a position to trash talk. In fact he went the opposite direction and went to bat for Belichick in the face of his criticism for leaving Gronkowski in for the extra point...
