Wow, when I saw this poster of NY Jets linebacker Mark Gastineau from the 1980′s, I did TWO THINGS:
Laughed my ASS off
THREW UP in my mouth
There is NO disputing that Gastineau was a great pass rusher, but he was the GEICO caveman before the GEICO caveman.
Patriots quarterbacks of the era, Steve Grogan and Tony Eason may have feared Gastineau on the gridiron but laughed so hard that their sides burst after seeing this Jet cover in Crisco.
The NYJ was even a J-O-K-E back in the day.

What was hinted at a few weeks ago has been all but confirmed: Tim Tebow is largely unhappy with the Jets.
Following a Week 14 contest in which Tebow received zero snaps, head coach Rex Ryan admitted that the backup quarterback likely is disappointed he came to New York this offseason.
"That's probably a true statement, as a competitor you want to have success, you want...
The New York Jets are a deeply flawed football team. There is a frustrating level of dysfunction in the front office and a concerning lack of talent spread throughout the roster. Yet, when you strip away all the media backlash and punchlines…the Jets are an overachieving mediocre team. Through 13 regular season games, there is 17 teams with an outright better record than them,...
The New York Jets, as expected, claimed receiver Braylon Edwards off waivers after he was officially released by the Seattle Seahawks. The extremely thin at receiver Jets look to be extremely thick-skinned as well, willing to bring back a known problem player who just called the Jets brass "idiots' only a week ago. But then again, the Jets are mathematically still in...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, free agent wide receiver Braylon Edwards could end up signing with the New York Jets, who’ve been depleted at the wide receiver position all season.
After winning yesterday’s game against the Jaguars, the Jets are now 6-7 and only a game out of the wild card race. If they sign Edwards it will give them a better chance of making it to the...
The Jets have picked up their former wideout, Braylon Edwards off of waivers. Remember it was just last week that Braylon referred to Jets management as “idiots” for the way they’ve handled QB Mark Sanchez.
Apparently the Jets are very forgiving and were trying to trade for Edwards a few weeks before the Seahawks cut him. Two seasons ago Sanchez and Edwards had great chemistry...

In an expected move, the New York Jets announced
Tuesday that they have been awarded wide receiver Braylon Edwards off

terms under which the...
The Jets have claimed veteran receiver Braylon Edwards off waivers from Seattle.Fantasy Spin:The Jets are dealing with multiple injuries at the wide receiver spot and Edwards will add depth and a goal line target. Given the quarterbacking situation in New York, however, his fantasy value is limited.
ESPN president John Skipper told producers what NFL fans have been aware of since week one — there's too much coverage of Tim Tebow on the cable network.
"I said, 'Guys, we didn't handle this very well." Going to training camp wasn't a problem. We just stayed on it relentlessly and too long," Skipper told Sports Business Journal.
ESPN sent hordes...
BY NICK ST. DENISThe New York Jets ran the ball down the throats of the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, but the efforts of their offensive line and tailbacks may have taken a back seat to those of a pair of promising young defensive linemen in Quinton Coples and Muhammad Wilkerson.Wilkerson was stout throughout the game, logging nearly double the amount of playing time as Coples in...
