The New York Jets offense sputtered in a 23-point preseason defeat at the hands of the defending world champion New York Giants. Gang Green's offensive line was exposed by Big Blue's vaunted pass-rush.

Tim Tebow's 25th birthday was, well, very much publicized. Anyone who turned on the TV this past Tuesday, particularly ESPN, found that out, as the Jets quarterback was the subject of plenty of discussion. Then again, that's not exactly a diversion from the norm. What is somewhat unique, however, is how one Alabama pizzeria decided to mark the occasion. Joe Carlucci, owner...
Fireman Ed was on Twitter last night weighing in on the Giants game. He also had some thoughts on Tim Tebow after watching SNY’s JetNation.

MetLife Stadium: Think positive won't you?Forget Mark Sanchez interception returned for a touchdown. Make believe Wayne Hunter isn't the Jets right tackle.

After an appropriate amount of time to decompress after last night’s horror show, TOJ is ready to break down the Jets second pre-season game against the Giants. We start with an open letter to Mike Tannenbaum from Mike Donnelly -
Dear Mike Tannenbaum,
Hey Mike, I just wanted to send you this letter because I have some real concerns about the job you’ve done lately with my beloved...
We know it’s just preseason game #2, but when you have your starters out there for a half, you’re giving up sacks, you’re fumbling, you’re throwing pick six’s, something is wrong. Very wrong.
The New York Giants spanked the Jets 26-3 to claim the title of Kings of New York, at least for the time being.
Rookie Jayron Hosley turned an interception off of Sanchez for...
Rex Ryan will not commit to Wayne Hunter as the New York Jets' starting right tackle after the offensive lineman struggled against the Giants on Saturday night.
Hunter was manhandled on three sacks of Mark Sanchez. He struggled most of last season as the starter, but the Jets still guaranteed his $2.45 million base salary for this year. Ryan said Monday that there's '...
Tim Tebow easily might be the most heavily publicized back up quarterback in NFL history. The Jets off-season pick up had his 25th birthday August 14th, and a pizzeria in Alabama created an interesting pizza to commemorate the day: Joe Carlucci, owner of Famous Joe’s Pizzeria, is a huge Tebow and Jets fan. He decided [...]
In 1997, the current general manager of the New York Jets, Mike Tannenbaum, was brought into the organization by the big Tuna himself, Bill Parcells. Tannenbaum, a Tulane Law School graduate, was brought in to manage the team's salary cap and handle contract negotiations.
Fast forward nine years and Tannenbaum goes from director of player contract negotiations to Jets'...

Joe Namath is one of the most controversial characters in the history of the NFL. He kept that going tonight with this tweet as Tim Tebow got ready to take the field against the New York Giants.

A lack of pass protection and Jayron Hosleys pick-six of Mark Sanchez highlighted a forgettable performance for an offense looking for any positive vibe in the preseason. Eight months after the Giants put the Jets into free-fall with a crushing Christmas Eve loss, Rex Ryans team struggled to generate a touchdown for the second consecutive week. Sanchez has yet to engineer a scoring...
In May, New York Jets offensive line coach Dave DeGuglielmo gave a rather graphic seal of approval on right tackle Wayne Hunter. "This guy is the starting right tackle," DeGuglielmo said, according to Jenny Vrentas of The Star-Ledger. "Until they tell me otherwise, until they ship him out of this building or until they shoot me dead in my office, that son-of-a-gun...
To say the New York Jets offense has been bad this pre-season is an insult to the word bad. It actually might also be an insult to the word “offense” because whatever the hell they have been doing these past two weeks certainly isn’t NFL offensive football. The production has looked something like this -
- 0 touchdowns
- 9 total points
- 12 sacks allowed
- Longest run by a...
According to New York Giants defensive tackle Carlton Powell, Jets quarterback Tim Tebow looked very frustrated with his offensive line for their horrific play in Saturday night’s preseason loss to the Giants.
“Obviously, we were getting after him a little bit,” said Powell, via The Star-Ledger. “And I guess they weren’t holding up their protection so some mistakes were...
