Found November 14, 2012 on Down and Distance:
Per a report from CNN’s Sports Illustrated, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks the player(s) who called Tim Tebow “terrible” are “a cowardly thing.”  Ryans comments are in response to an earlier report of over a dozen Jets players and members of the organization anonymously criticizing Tebow. Ryan is absolutely right; if you want to call Tebow terrible, be like the Jets left guard Matt Slauson, a staunch Sanchez supporter, who said going with Tebow “wasn’t even an option.” Ryan also emphasized that Tebow was not brought in to be the starter but has done everything he has been asked to do and is typically the first one at practice and the last one to leave. By now, most fans should have moved past the overhype that the media exposes Tebow to; bottom line is Tebow is a hard worker, a gifted athlete, but is not NFL starting quarterback material. Sad thing is at this point is that there doesn’t appear to be a starting caliber quarterback on the Jets roster at all.

Rex Ryan cried after loss to Seattle

Known for his bluster and bravado, the Jets coach showed a different side of himself to his players following their loss to the Seahawks on Sunday.

Time for Rex to admit Sanchez is not his ‘guy’

I am pretty sure I lost a bet earlier this season when I predicted Mark Sanchez would be benched by Week 10. At the start of the 2012 season, things were looking okay for the Jets. All they really needed to focus on is getting through a tough first half, fix mistakes during the bye, and storm through a much easier second-half schedule. But, the Jets did not do what they needed to...

On Wednesday, members of the New York Jets locker room semi-shocked the world with their shots against backup quarterback Tim Tebow.

Anonymous Jets players rip Tebow

The horrid play of Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez along with the team's 3-6 record has some fans and pundits calling for the Jets to finally make the move and insert Tim Tebow as starting quarterback.

For Ryan Out Loud: Rex teared up in Seattle

The New York Jets' offense was listless in Seattle and that didn't sit well with head coach Rex Ryan.

Rex Ryan Determined to Ride a Sinking Ship

I really don’t like the Jets, mostly because they are blinded by their own arrogance. Last year Rex Ryan continued to tout his team as a Super Bowl contender instead of paying attention in the clubhouse. They rewarded a mediocre quarterback coming off a disappointing season with a contract extension. They declare that they are a ground-and-pound team despite not having personnel...

New York Jets QB Controversy: Shonn Green Should Make Beeping Noise When He Backtracks That Much

The New York jets quarterback controversy took yet another interesting twist this week when many current players said that they had absolutely no faith or confidence in Tim Tebow, opting rather to stick with mark Sanchez as the team’s starting QB going forward. As bad as Sanchez has been throughout the entire 2012 NFL season, it says something when the Jets do not even support...

Column: If not now, when is 'Tebow Time?'

(Eds: Corrects Keller's first name to Dustin in seventh paragraph. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Jets coach Rex Ryan is so competitive that he'd play Satan at quarterback if he was convinced the move would help his team win. But for some reason, he's drawn the line at Tim Tebow. On any other team, with any other backup waiting in the wings, there...

Jets-Rams Preview

There's a strong possibility many NFL teams will be starting backup quarterbacks in Week 11 for one reason or another, though the New York Jets won't be one of them. That seems to be just fine with a few unidentified teammates of Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. Coach Rex Ryan's task of helping the slumping Jets remain positive is becoming increasingly difficult as they...

Rather than wasting time with Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, the New York Jets should start former Alabama standout Greg McElroy at quarterback

After yet another putrid performance in Sunday’s 28-7 loss to the Seahawks at CenturyLink Field in Seattle, Washington, it is more evident than ever that Mark Sanchez is a quarterback incapable of making the New York Jets a winning organization. … Continue reading →
