Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
Staff Writer Chris Gross looks back at the previous few months of Fact or False to see how the off-season developed for the New York Jets and what predictions were on point or completely off-base. Make sure to follow Chris on Twitter -
With the 2012 NFL Offseason finally in the books, it is only fitting that we take a look back at our first 10 editions of New York Jets Fact Or False and review which predictions went wrong, as well as which ones seem to have held up thus far. Certainly, few, if any, of these predictions will not be resolved until the conclusion of the season, but for now, let’s use the beginning of training camp as a check point to see how we are doing. For this week’s edition, we look at the 6 most prevalent issues that we predicted, and explain why or how they look to be on point, or completely lost.

The New York Jets voluntarily put themselves into a complex situation by trading for Tim Tebow this off-season. He is a polarizing player and a lightning rod for fans and critics alike. Keeping the focus to the football field, Tebow has the ability to help the Jets significantly this season if used properly. However, if not used properly, his presence could end up torpedoing the...
D’Brickashaw Ferguson Says The Jets Have “Greatness” Written All Over Them
This must be “Offensive Lineman Puff Their Chest Out Day”. Wonder if that is a paid holiday?
First, Ryan Kalil guaranteeing Super Bowl wins and now D’Brickashaw Ferguson putting in his two cents on how great the Jets are.
They say never to discuss politics or religion at a dinner party...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is going to be dealing with enough questions from the media about his play this season now that Tim Tebow is his backup quarterback. However, for the reporters that are asking these questions, you hope that they can at least keep their names straight.
Unfortunately, that's exactly what happened Thursday as Sanchez reported to Jets training...
Everyone at the New York Jets' opening day of training camp Thursday was on their best behavior and Rex Ryan intends to keep it that way. The team— which seems to have more dramas than an episode of "Dallas"— has a quarterback controversy ready to boil over and the head coach wants his players— specifically Santonio Holmes— to turn down the heat.
The Jets activated free safety LaRon Landry from the physically unable to perform list, clearing the free-agent addition to participate in his first practice with the team Friday. Landry, signed to a one-year contract in March, was cleared to rehab away from the team facility. He was battling chronic Achilles issues and has only done individual sideline work and conditioning drills...
The New York Jets are always trying something new. Whether it’s using a guy like Tim Tebow in special packages, or using the Former Jet Brad Smith in a variety of ways, they have a trick to doing things.
A big topic of Jets football thusfar has been lack of depth at RB and WR. They haven’t focused too much on bringing in players at either position, but today Jets coach Rex Ryan...
It’s like looking in a mirror J…
New York Jets training camp should be fun. Rex Ryan mixed with Tim Tebow should be a blast with the New York Media around. Today a reporter was asking Mark Sanchez a question and referred to him as “Tim”. Sanchez replied: “I’m Mark”.

Peyton Manning’s First Practice
Heading into the upcoming NFL season, fans of all teams are hopeful that their players are confident. If making the playoffs and winning a Super Bowl isn’t the goal, what’s the point of watching? The expectations of Jets fans are high enough, however. They probably don’t need people like D’Brickashaw Ferguson telling them how much potential the current roster has, but the...
The Jets started camp and one of the biggest questions leading into the upcoming season is, Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow?
I think this reporter may have made up her mind.
Freudian slip, I think.
Sanchez handled it well, but is probably seething inside. Tebow is America's Sweetheart and Sanchez is the underachiever that New York is less than thrilled with.
If you ask me, its...
LEADS BY EXAMPLE
Disturbed by the rash of recent arrests, Giants defensive lineman has a piece of advice for his fellow NFL players: be more like Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.
Hot News for CB Antonio Cromartie
A reporter at Jets camp referred to Mark Sanchez as “Tim” during a Q&A session, which is either inexcusably stupid or inspired trolling. C’mon, they’re entirely different shades of terrible quarterback. It has to be trolling. In which case, I guess I’m just disappointed that Ines Sainz couldn’t have been the one to do it. If we’re gonna make this a media narrative...
