Turn On The Jets:
Pats Lose But Jets Are Still A Mess
Jets fans loved seeing the Ravens knock the Patriots out. After five straight years of Super Bowl pain that began when the David Tyree Giants shocked the world, through the Jets AFC title game years to now, the Har-Bowl will be much easier to stomach than a Pats or Big Blue appearance would have again.
Keep this in mind though. Today the offices in Foxboro will begin work on 2013. On being one, two games better. The Jets cleanup won’t be nearly as simple. What a job this will be for new GM John Idzik. Cleaning up the rubble of a bombed out city. Enjoy the Pats exit idiot bleed green and white, but keep in perspective.
One Thing Is Certain
Matt Flynn, Matt Moore, heck even call Vinny Testaverde if you have to. Mark Sanchez cannot be brought back with the hopes that new coaches and a new system will undoubtedly cure his brittle mindset. If Sanchez can’t be traded there has to be a veteran fighting for the same job right next to him this summer. Anything less would be considered negligence by the fans.
On Second Thought
We have raised the notion of a rebuilding process that could include trading Darrelle Revis in order to receive a handful of picks and players. After watching CBs suffer in this postseason, we are no longer in love with the idea. We hope that Idzik and Co. Would agree. The rules are too soft nowadays to lose a great corner. Sign Revis, for the long term. Once he shows that his knee is healthy again. In closing, we can emphasize enough how much we are looking forward to the coming weeks and months. A time when this roster will take shape and finally work towards becoming more viable offensively. It’s about time.
Stay with TOJ all week, as we will be continuing our roster breakdown, NFL Draft Preview and begin breaking down the West Coast Offense and how the Jets current personnel fits with it.

Was Tim Tebow forced on Jets owner Woody Johnson? A report says that's what he was telling GM candidates whom he interviewed.
The New York Jets season is over. They will presumably part ways with quarterback Tim Tebow.
With both of those statements in mind, you would think that the subject of their pairing would begin to die down.
Jets owner Woody Johnson does not answer to anyone.
He apparently felt the need to discuss Tebow with GM candidates when the team was looking for one.

Rex Ryan and Woody Johnson have a number of options to replace Mark Sanchez who makes $8.25 million in 2013. There’s no guarantee for Sanchez to be the starter and new offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg must be looking at a number of replacements. The real problem for the Jets is the $20 million they are over the cap limit, per Brian Costello from the New York Post. While replacing...
It's been common knowledge since it happened. New York Jets owner Woody Johnson wanted Tim Tebow. “I think you can never have too much Tebow,” were Johnson's words last August. Now, he's saying it wasn't his idea, that the trade was 'forced' on him, he told a candidate for the Jets GM job, former Broncos GM Ted Sundquist.
The most confusing team in the NFL continues to be the New York Jets. The current saga of complete confusion began last year when the Jets traded for a backup quarterback, Tim Tebow.

“Oh man, this Kidz Bop album is dope.”
Last we heard of the New York Jets and their second- and sometimes-third string quarterback, Tim Tebow, owner Woody Johnson was trying to convince us that he was “forced” into making a trade with the Denver Broncos to acquire the eventual inspiration for Skip Bayless’ sex doll. Because if we’ve learned anything in this silly little...
You’d be hard pressed to find another team in the NFL that is in as much current disarray than the New York Jets. The Jets have been dysfunctional for the last two seasons and the situation does not seem to be calming down anytime soon. Yesterday, news broke that Jets owner Woody Johnson told a general manager candidate that QB Tim Tebow was forced on him last season. Excuse me...
Mark Sanchez hasn’t been demoted from the Jets’ starting quarterback spot yet. But, oh, if he is….

The New York Jets will likely be looking to improve their depth at the quarterback position for next season. There’s no way Tim Tebow will be back and Greg McElory likely isn’t the long-term answer.
There’s a chance the Jets may want to look at signing Tarvaris Jackson in the offseason, since he’ll be a free agent.
In Seattle, New Jets GM John Idzik was a supporter of...
Matters appear to be getting particularly nasty in the impending divorce between Sale Johnson and Ahmad Rashad.
