Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
A few quick thoughts on the New York Jets decision to sign running back Kahlil Bell and release outside linebacker Aaron Maybin, only because it is a rarity when GM Mike Tannenbaum makes two smart decisions in one day -
1. If given the proper opportunity, Kahlil Bell is going to be a strong addition to this roster. He is an immediate upgrade over Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight. He arguably could even be an upgrade over Shonn Greene. (Go look at Greene’s stats outside of the outlier Colts game this year and then come back to me). Why am I so excited about Bell? Predominantly from his body of work over the final five games last season when he saw extensive playing time for the Chicago Bears. Here are his game logs from those weeks -
Vs. Kansas City – 4 carries, 34 yards
At Denver – 9 carries, 40 yards, 5 receptions, 24 yards
Vs. Seattle – 15 carries, 65 yards, 5 receptions, 43 yards
At Green Bay – 23 carries, 121 yards, 4 receptions, 38 yards
At Minnesota – 17 carries, 54 yards, 5 rec...

AROUND THE WEB
LaDainian Tomlinson said Wednesday that he thinks he knows the identities of at least two of the Jets players who anonymously savaged Tim Tebow.
Add another Tim Tebow detractor to the list.
This time it's Steelers’ Hall of Famer and FOX analyst Terry Bradshaw.
The Hall of Famer Bradshaw gave his two-cents on Tebow.
“I don’t know him, but he just can’t play,” Bradshaw said.
Bradshaw then added that he doesn't understand the hype surrounding Tebow because his work in Denver was such a small sample size...
In what some would consider a surprising move, the New York Jets released LB Aaron Maybin on Tuesday, November 13th. They also signed ex-Bears running back Kahlil Bell, adding depth to a depleted running back corps.
Aaron “Mayhem” Maybin led the Jets in sacks (6) in 2011 and was hoping to develop into more of an every-down linebacker for the Jets. However, after 8 games into...
I GET SO EMOTIONAL
Known for his bluster and bravado, the Jets coach showed a different side of himself to his players following their loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.
After yet another putrid performance in Sunday’s 28-7 loss to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington, it is more evident than ever that Mark Sanchez is a quarterback incapable of making the New York Jets a winning organization. … Continue reading →
The horrid play of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez along with the team's 3-6 record has some fans and pundits calling for the Jets to finally make the move and insert Tim Tebow as starting quarterback.
That might be a popular decision among the masses outside of Rex Ryan's tear-filled locker room, but inside, Tebow has anything but the support of his Gang Green teammates....
When you’re are the quarterback of a team and expected to be a leader, it’s a bad sign when your teammates have no confidence in you.According to the Daily News, New York Jets players believe Tebow shouldn’t be starting at quarterback, and going as far as saying, “he’s terrible.”There has been a lot of hoopla over the quarterback situation in New York since the offseason...
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...
The New York jets quarterback controversy took yet another interesting twist this week when many current players said that they had absolutely no faith or confidence in Tim Tebow, opting rather to stick with mark Sanchez as the team’s starting QB going forward. As bad as Sanchez has been throughout the entire 2012 NFL season, it says something when the Jets do not even support...
The Jets signed former Bears RB Kahlil Bell, CBS Sports' Jason La Canfora first reported, to make room for Bell, the team released OLB Aaron Maybin, Newsday's Kimberley Martin reported.
Bell played in two games earlier this season for Chicago and had 12 carries for 32 yards and one catch for 11 yards. He had 79 carries for 337 yards and 19 catches for 133 yards last season...
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....
The New York Jets' offense was listless in Seattle and that didn't sit well with head coach Rex Ryan.
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...
The Seattle Seahawks (6-4) beat the New York Jets (3-6) 28-7, this past Sunday at CentruyLink Field from Seattle, WA.
As soon as the Jets told media before this game saying they were going to make the playoffs, but that likely won't happen now as they got crushed by Seattle.
It's time for Rex Ryan to pull Mark Sanchez from the starting QB position, although it is unlikely...
