TEAMS: New York Jets
Earlier today, New York Jets Woody Johnson was interviewed by CNBC and made it clear that Mark Sanchez is his starting quarterback and that nothing will change. He also said that Tim Tebow isn’t going anywhere because he’ll be with the Jets until at least 2014.Jets head coach Rex Ryan addressed Johnson’s comments and told the media today that there’s no guarantee that Tebow will be on their roster for the length of his contract.“When we traded for Tim, we understood his contract situation,” Ryan said on Thursday, per Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. “We brought him in because we think Tim’s a good football player. With that being said – and this goes for any player – we think the guys will be with us throughout the length of the contract, but if, you know… there’s no guarantee there that if there’s , you know, whatever, an opportunity to help your football team…. If we see fit…. whatever’s in the best interest of our team… I guess no player is totally guaranteed that they’ll be there. But clearly he’s a guy that we thought a lot of and that’s why we traded for him. And still think a lot of.”Ryan won’t even commit to Sanchez being the starter for the remainder of the season.“A lot of things can happen,” Ryan said. “And I’m not going to deal with what ifs because … I’m telling you right now (that) he’s our starting quarterback this week, barring injury. And things happen. I feel really confident in Mark. .. I’ve never wavered on him.”“He’s our starter. What do you want me to say?” Ryan later said. “He’s our starter. He’s our starter this week. He’s our starter.”With both Johnson and Ryan not being on the same page, this is just another example of a dysfunctional NFL franchise.

Tim Tebow is the Jets only chance at winning. I've been calling for Tebow to start for New York since they traded for him.

The bottom line is that teams that lack offensive talent run option offenses. You...

Jets owner plans to keep Tebow for three years

Having been a long-time confidant of Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, Woody Johnson, some say, is more political than football-oriented.

The Jets need to refuel their engines

At this point the Jets have no answers on offense at all. Tebow or Sanchez? Where’s first round pick from a few years ago in Shonne Greene.

He beat Johnathan Joseph badly on a stop and go route on Monday...

Rex Ryan Should Entertain Terrell Owens' Twitter Suggestion to Help Salvage What's Left of Jets' Season

The Jets have already lost their best defensive player and their best receiving option for the season.
