The New York Jets say thanks but no thanks to HBO’s desire to have their “Hard Knocks” broadcast on TV. The show which takes fans inside the huddle of an NFL team’s training camp sounds like a very interesting idea…to football fans. But clearly the executives at HBO wanted to grab more than just the avid sports follower, as after the Jets traded for polarizing quarterback, Tim Tebow, the network extended an offer to have the New York Jets return for an encore performance of their highly rated 2010 appearance. With the sudden quarterback controversy brewing in the Big Apple, thanks to Tim Tebow’s mass appeal and Mark Sanchez’s shaky play, the Jets may have felt allowing the public to witness the battle themselves may place more unwanted and unnecessary pressure on the two would-be starting QBs. As headlines about Mark Sanchez referring to Tim Tebow as his “backup,” or Tim Tebow being the first player into the weight room at the break of dawn continue to surface, one can only specu...

Tim Tebow changed his dog’s name to ‘Bronx’

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...

Tim Tebow to be subject of E! special

According to a spokesperson from the E!, the network will air a half-hour special devotedly solely to the New York Jets quarterback sometime in July.

Tim Tebow is about to have one confused pooch running around his house

Tim Tebow knows how to play to the Jets fans, doesn’t he? I don’t understand why Tebow is bothering to change his dog’s name from Bronco to Bronx (Ed. note: Bronco is a much better name for a dog if you ask me) other than the obvious, but if you’re going to go ahead and give your pet a new moniker, shouldn’t it have been Swampy or Cesspool or even Jersey, seeing that the...

Tim Tebow will be on a special for E! this summer

"I don't know why I'm famous!" In what appears to be a never ending quest for the public to learn everything there is about Tebow that has nothing to do with football, E! has announced that they will be airing a 30-minute special with him as the main focus. Unfortunately they won't be asking him questions about why he can't throw a spiral but focus...

Jets locker room already a circus

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...

Criminally underexposed Tim Tebow finally getting his own special on E!

Jets backup quarterback and man-about-town Tim Tebow will be the subject of a special to air on E! Entertainment Television later this summer.  Because if there’s one athlete the public needs to find out more intimate details about, should any exist, it’s Tebow (Ed. note: sarcasm is fun!). Scant details are available as to what the 30-minute show will be about, but I can’t...

New York firmly in grip of Tebowmania

The New York Rangers have a Game 7 in Madison Square Garden on Saturday, Andy Pettitte's pitching his first game in pinstripes since 2010 on Sunday, and J.P. Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon reported that his bank had $2 billion in trading losses. And what was everyone talking about in New York City on Thursday? Tim Tebow's dog's name. Seriously. In an interview session...

Jets QB coach: Sanchez had ‘poor decision-making’

There's no question that Mark Sanchez, entering what amounts to a make-or-break fourth season, has the weight on the world on his shoulders. Now, thanks to an unlikely source, it's gotten that much heavier. Pontificating on the past, Jets quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh told the New York Daily News that Sanchez displayed "poor decision-making" last season...

Even Mark Sanchez’s QB coach thinks he stinks

We like to pick on New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez, and it is because we don’t think of him as a very good quarterback, showing flashes of nothing. Ya see, Sanchez’s early success was predicated on one of the best running games in football and one of the best defenses, as well. Actually, I [...]

AP source: Jets turn down 'Hard Knocks' sequel

A person familiar with the decision says the New York Jets have decided to not participate in HBO's ''Hard Knocks'' this summer after being approached by HBO about appearing in the hit show again.

New York Jets Turned Down “Hard Knocks”

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...

Can the Jets have two Leaders at the same position? Sanchez and Tebow?

Darrelle Revis was asked about whether you can have two leaders at one position, or more specifically two leaders at the QB position, on one team, and he replied with an honestly noncommittal answer. His answer made me truly wonder if it was possible to have two QB’s of the team be viewed as by their teammates as leaders. “That’s a tough question,” Revis said. “I don’t...
