Today we come to the end of our complete breakdown of every New York Jets draft pick, by looking at first rounder Quinton Coples. In case you haven’t been paying attention, here are the links to all the previous articles. Another huge shout out to Chris Gross, TOJ’s own Mike Mayock, who didn’t leave the film room the past two weeks.

When the New York Jets selected Quinton Coples with the 16th overall selection in this year’s NFL draft, the organization immediately found itself under heavy criticism. Many expected the Jets to trade up for DE/OLB Melvin Ingram, but when he fell to New York at 16, it was seemingly too good to be true. When the Jets opted to pass on the highly touted player out of South Carolina, the reaction was not very warm among the green and white faithful. What made the decision to pass on Ingram even worse was the scrutiny that Coples found himself under in the ...

It’s official: Tim Tebow’s allegiance now lies with New York. The new Jets quarterback told the media on Thursday that he changed his dog’s name from Bronco to Bronx after being traded.
Tebow got the pooch — a Rhodesian Ridgeback — in October 2010. He seemed to be sucking up to the local crowd by naming his pup Bronco back then. He chose “Bronx” as the new name for...
One night after walking the red carpet with A-listers at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Costume Institute Gala, Tim Tebow was spotted downing red meat with his O-line at a Manhattan steak house along with New York Jets owner Woody Johnson and Mark Sanchez.
Although Sanchez— the Jets starting quarterback— and Tebow, who will be competing with him for playing time this season...
Tim Tebow says he has worked exclusively at quarterback as Mark Sanchez's backup during the early portion of the New York Jets' offseason program, and is ''just trying to learn the offense.''
Coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano have said Tebow, acquired from Denver in March, could have extensive playing time for the Jets in various roles...
Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends.
May is typically a quiet month in NFL circles, but for the Jets, the attention surrounding Tim Tebow made life at their Florham Park facility feel like they were prepping for a playoff game. On Thursday the locker room was open to the media for the first time during the team's voluntary offseason workouts, and more than...
If Tim Tebow truly is heading into Jets training camp with the goal of becoming the starting quarterback, Mark Sanchez does not see it happening. The Jets owners and coaches have made it clear that Sanchez is their starter, but they also say they intend to use Tebow in a number of different packages and that he will in some way impact the offense. Sanchez agrees that Tebow will be...
The New York Jets have decided against doing the famed HBO sports series Hard Knocks for the second consecutive season (they did it in 2010 with no series during the lockout). The look inside training camp and the preseason that helped gain Rex Ryan and the Jets even more notoriety will have to seek out another team for its’ 2012 season.
It was reported that Jets’ owner Woody...
Unfortunately for those of us who love great television, the New York Jets have reportedly turned down a chance to reprise their role at the center of HBO’s training camp documentary show “Hard Knocks.” I’ll give you a moment to weep silently to yourselves.
Having the Jets on “Hard Knocks” this summer would have been a gift from God. The last time Rex Ryan’s team was...
GWR plays the role of Nostradamus forecasting the impact of Jets rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill. Will Hill live up to the hype that lured New York into trading up to select him with its second-round draft choice?
Tebowmania is taking over New York, and not even canines are safe. In an attempt to fully embrace his new team, Tim Tebow is changing his dog’s name to “Bronx.” Tebow got the Rodesian Ridgeback in 2010, during his rookie season and named him “Bronco” after the franchise. After acquiring Peyton Manning in the off season, the Denver Broncos traded Tebow for a four...
Recently I wrote an article about the weaknesses of the New York Jets in 2011. Some of my followers and their followers strongly disagreed that Kyle Wilson was a liability as a nickel cornerback last season. When I cited other sources, such as profootballfocus.com (PFF) or Matt Miller of New Era Scouting, they said there were plenty of other sources that contradicted mine.
So I went...

Apparently Tim Tebow could not deal with the psychological trauma of having his identity being ripped away by his master, so he took it out on his dog in similar fashion.
Tim Tebow is solely a quarterback for the moment. Tebow said Thursday he has not worked at any positions other than quarterback so far during the Jets offseason program. There have been reports the Jets plan to use him at tight end or H-back as well as a running back. Tebow said he is open to anything. "I always put team first, and whatever they want me to do, they know Ill...
During today’s New York Jets media session, cornerback Darrelle Revis really let loose and stated that he doesn’t like both Patriots head coach Bill Belchick and quarterback Tom Brady.
Revis was asked to elaborate more on why he called Belichick a “jerk” during a word association game he played on ESPN.
“I gave my honest opinion,” Revis said. “You guys know me very...
The 2011 New York Jets lacked many assets to make them a playoff team, as displayed by their .500 record. Among their several missing pieces was a big, playmaking, wide receiver that could stretch the field and open up the offense. Plaxico Burress fit the “big” bill, but having been over a full year removed from football, he lacked the speed to create any separation from defensive...
