Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
New York Giants
The general consensus from the mainstream media about the 2012 New York Jets isn’t positive. We have seen them ranked as low as 27th in Power Rankings by Evan Silva of Rotoworld, along with most commentators pegging them for 3rd or 4th in the AFC East behind Buffalo and in some cases behind Miami. This line of thinking isn’t that surprising when you step back and consider a few things.
Most people view the Jets as a brash talking organization who has seen their small window close. They are a roster stuffed with overhyped, overpaid players who had an ugly meltdown to end the 2011 season. Everybody who doesn’t wear a green and white jersey on Sundays is giddy at the thought of Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez failing and being out of a job this time next year.
The hate towards Ryan makes sense. He bit off more than he could chew last year when his big words weren’t matched by a successful January run that came up just short of a Super Bowl appearance. Tom Coughlin and the New York Giants ma...

This week’s 12 Pack is going throw out some statistical predictions for members of both the New York Jets offense and defense. Credit for the idea goes to (@ItsOasus) on Twitter. Give the man a follow and while you are it give our fellow writers Chris Gross, Mike Donnelly and TJ Rosenthal a follow.

It wasn't the first time she's done it, but Lindsey Vonn seized the moment and fittingly Tebowed after she presented Tim Tebow with the ESPY for "Best Moment."
In separate interviews with the Newark Star-Ledger, both Vladimir Ducasse and Joe McKnight admit this is a “make or break” year for them. Both Jets are heading into their 3rd seasons in the NFL, going in the 2nd and 4th rounds respectively in 2010. Ducasse is a versatile player who has not been able to crack the starting lineup anywhere, including right tackle, where the terrible...
Now that LaDainian Tomlinson is officially retired and a former-Jet, he can say negative things about the team without it affecting him. In one of his first appearances since his retirement ceremony, Tomlinson appeared on Rich Eisen’s podcast and spoke about, among other things, the Jets and their transition to a more run first offense this year. The Jets have talked about getting...
The New York Jets had an average 2011 season and in order for them to be above average, the entire team has to play at the same level as offensive lineman D’Brickashaw Ferguson, who has been one of the past offensive tackles the last three years. Because of his efforts, Ferguson comes in at No. 97 on GridironGrit.com’s new list of the Top 100 Players of 2012.
Ferguson was raised...
It Can’t Be All That: Jets QB Mark Sanchez’s Jets West retreat/workout has become an annual rite of passage for their offensive skill players.
So much so that Sanchez hired a security detail of epic proportions to keep uninvited guests and the media out.

And here we are thinking Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez are going to hate each other… What fools we are! Afterall, one is a fast-talking womanizer, and the other is a devout well-behaved virgin.
It’s a match made in heaven. The New York Jets are the poster boys for team chemistry.. SMH
Tim Tebow and Demaryius Thomas picked up the ESPY Best Moment Award for the 80-yard TD pass in their improbable overtime win against the Pittsburgh Steelers in the playoffs. Both players took to the stage, but for some reason only Tebow spoke.
"To be honest, I probably would've voted for Bubba (Watson), but Bubba, you know I love you, but you did win my golf tournament...
Tim Tebow and Denver Broncos receiver Demaryius Thomas enjoyed a big win Wedenesday night at the ESPY Awards. They won the award for Best Moment for their 80-yard touchdown to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers in overtime in the AFC Wild-Card Game.
Both Tebow and Thomas took the stage but Thomas left the speaking all to Tebow. The New York Jets backup quarterback delivered a message...
Toward the latter part of last season, Tim Tebow helped Demaryius Thomas make a name for himself. Though Tebow is oft-criticized for his passing skills — or lackthereof — he’s able to uncork a pretty decent deep ball, and Thomas, a speedster, has an uncanny way of getting open downfield.
During their improbable playoff run, the two connected on several big plays, most notably...
In the National Football League the quarterback gets way too much blame and way too much credit. Last time I checked Matthew Stafford does not block, tackle, or catch passes. There are many other players that toil in obscurity but yet must do their jobs well to at least get a victory in the National Football League every week.
However, it is important to have at least average...
Yep, there are more semi-naked ESPN Body Issue photos to peruse and as you can see, we have a legless chick getting naked. It’s a new world, people. If you can’t see the beauty in a legless woman, time to get with the times. She was, like, willing to get semi-naked for you guys. Her name is Oksana Masters and she’s a Paralympic rower who lost her legs to radiation.
3) Is rookie Head Coach Chuck Pagano more Mike Nolan or Rex Ryan?
Of the five defensive coordinators the Baltimore Ravens have had since they moved from Cleveland in 1996, Pagano is the fourth to earn a head coaching job.
The previous three have had various levels of success; Mike Nolan flamed out in San Francisco, Marvin Lewis has had some success mixed with plenty of failure...
