With the New York Jets' offense failing to score a touchdown through Week 1 of the preseason, the offense did make some strides last night.Their offensive line looked stronger and was able to protect Mark Sanchez for the most part.With Wayne Hunter going to the bench, newly promoted right tackle Austin Howard has answered critics by showing that he is quite capable of playing on every down.Howard looked very strong in pass protection, not allowing a sack or much pressure from his side of the line. Howard also got out in front and helped lead the Jets' rushing attack, which still has a lot left to be desired.While he Jets' offense looked better versus the Carolina Panthers last night, they still failed to get into the end zone. Sanchez threw the ball well for the most part and has now completed 68.5 percent of his passes through the first three games of the preseason.That's a good number for Sanchez as he looks to become a more accurate passer.The biggest issue with t...

Fireman Ed says Jets Players not Helping Sanchez out

I didn’t go to any preseason games and apparently neither did Fireman Ed.  According to his tweets this morning, he never goes and he never worries about the preseason results. Mark Sanchez played a pretty good game in my eyes and Ed believes that his teammates need to help him out.  That starts with the line protection and goes all the way to the receivers running the correct...

New York Jets: Offensive-Line Shuffle

  Dear New York Jets, Please excuse Mark from football practice until you can provide pass protection for him so that he may live to see his 26th birthday. Signed, Sanchez’ mother To say that the Jets’ offensive line has played horribly would be an understatement. Abysmal seems appropriate as they have given up 12 sacks in two preseason games. RT Wayne Hunter has been benched...

Sanchez plus Tebow equals no TDs so far for Jets

The New York Jets are still searching for the end zone. Mark Sanchez can't get them there, and neither can Tim Tebow. After three preseason games, the Jets' offensive ineptitude has become a punch line - especially since they're the first team in 35 years to go this long without a touchdown. Sure, it's still only the preseason and the Jets insist they're not...

Onward and Howard

The right tackle position as been a source of frustration and bewilderment for the New York Jets. Will fourth-year pro Austin Howard be a long-term fix for the Green-and-White?

Panthers hold off Jets in preseason win

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Mark Sanchez looked pretty good for nearly three quarters. He just couldn't get the New York Jets into the end zone -- again. Tim Tebow had the play of the game, but also couldn't get that elusive preseason touchdown for the Jets. Tebow got the fans fired up with a dazzling 20-yard run in the fourth quarter, but threw an interception three...

Tebow-Sanchez merely a distraction

Ongoing and increasingly fervent debate of playboy vs. altar boy, Sanchize vs. Tebowmania in New York feels almost too perfect to be accidental. Actually, screenshots of N.Y. Jets quarterbacks Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow answering somber versions of what basically boiled down to "about this inevitable QB controversy . . . " during halftime of Sunday Night Football felt...

Every NFL Offensive Line Sucks

Looking at the NFC East right now, you could probably make a convincing argument that the weakest unit on all four teams in that division is the offensive line.  In New York, Eli Manning's blind side is in trouble with Will Beatty hurt and Mark Sanchez's front side is in jeopardy as the Jets look for a right tackle solution not named Wayne Hunter.  Have...

BREAKING NEWS: Jets Trade T Hunter to Rams for OL Smith

After Jets head coach Rex Ryan announced that Austin Howard had supplanted the incumbent Wayne Hunter at the right tackle position, he said he was 'excited' for Hunter's new role with the offense. His new role was supposed to be the team's sixth lineman and exclusive jumbo tight end."The more I went back and looked at where we are at as a football team and getting...

New York Jets: END ZONE ENVY

GAME RECAP:  If the game against the Carolina Panthers was truly the last dress rehearsal before the regular season, I’m not impressed with what will-be the finished product as the Jets went yet another game without a touchdown.  Granted, the Jets aren’t running the offense the way they say they will in the regular season, but the execution of the plays they are running is...

21 NSFW F-Bomb Tweets Ripping The Jets Disgusting Offense

Catch any of the Jets-Panthers game last night? Jets looked good right? This time is becoming more and more of a laughing stock with every passing week. Rex Ryan and Tony Sparano keep telling fans that things are fine, that they’re waiting until the regular season to “unleash” their offense. The media is quickly becoming very critical and so are fans. They’re sick of Tebow...

NFL Preseason Week 3: Sunday Night Notes

Only two games on the card Sunday night but they both involved interesting storylines.Peyton Manning looked sharp in his 3rd preseason game with the Broncos.Also just as interesting, but perhaps for different reasons, Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow continued to struggle in their 3rd preseason outing with the Jets.  Peyton and his Horses look ready for Week 1, while Mark and Timmy have...

The Jets are in trouble with their anemic offense

The New York Jets have a major problem. They've played three preseason games, and they still haven't put the ball in the endzone. At this point, it's hard to imagine Tony Sparano feeling comfortable about his job security as the Jets prepare for their final preseason game against the Eagles. Last night's game against Carolina showed us a few things. First off...
