Found May 09, 2013 on Pro Football Zone:
Since Jets’ receiver Santonio Holmes can’t play yet, it seems he has taken it upon himself to decide who will be the starting quarterback this year. According to Conner Orr of the Star-Ledger, this is what Holmes had to say. On the quarterback competition: “Right now, it’s Sanchez and that’s who we’re going with and we’re going to continue on this road until time permits.” Holmes also shared his feelings on the Darrelle Revis trade and deflected a Tim Tebow question. On the Darrelle Revis trade: “I didn’t believe it, I was constantly getting text messages and phone calls asking me about the situation and all I can say is congrats to Rev, he deserves to get paid the way he’s playing and I hope he gets well with his injury to provide some great defense for the Bucs.”   On one word to sum up the Tim Tebow situation: (LONG PAUSE)….”That one I’m going to leave unanswered for that one. I have no answer for that one.”   When pressed further, Holmes said: “I didn’t get a chance to play with Tim Tebow so I can’t fully express myself on the situation.” The Jets have been a disaster the past two years and now they are headed into a important year that will decide the fate of many; Rex Ryan, Mark Sanchez, and yes, Santonio Holmes as well.

New York Jets – Exploring Potential Of Ivory/Goodson Backfield

The New York Jets haven’t had a flashy off-season but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been productive. There has been measured progress at a variety of positions but the most notable infusion of talent has occurred at running back. Plodding Shonn Greene was wisely allowed to leave in free agency and in his place the Jets added a duo of backs with immensely high potential, Chris...

Tim Tebow isn't good enough to be a distraction

Is Tim Tebow being blackballed by the NFL? The short and simple answer is that Tim Tebow is not good enough as a player to be a distraction in the NFL, and the media circus around him is a distraction. There's no question Tim Tebow is one of the biggest media stories as an athlete. Forbes just named him America's most influential athlete. The Onion just named him America...

A rival NFL executive predicts that David Garrard will be the starting quarterback for the New York Jets in 2013

Provided the rusty 35-year-old remains healthy, one rival executive predicted to NFL Network’s Kim Jones that quarterback David Garrard will start Week 1 for the New York Jets against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on September 8. Tentatively slated to battle rookie Geno Smith and abysmal chucker Mark Sanchez for the starting job, the 6-foot-1, 235 pound Gerrard could be an ideal Band...

Fantasy Football: Chris Ivory’s Breakthrough

It’s time to get excited about Chris Ivory’s 2013 fantasy football outlook now that he’s a member of the New York Jets.

Playoffs?!? Where do the Jets stand now?

The Jets are in rebuilding mode. Once the draft is over and camps start up, fans start looking to the season ahead, and wondering if their team has what it takes to get into the postseason. At the end of last season I didn’t think there was any way they were making the playoffs in 2013, but at that time John Idzik wasn’t in control. He has turned the team around more...

Idzik Goes Receiver Shopping

When John Idzik took over the Jets everyone knew he had a lot of work to do to turn this team around. When free agency started Idzik made a few under the radar/affordable signings (Goodson, Barnes, Garay, Colon), but it was the amount of players he let walk (not even really attempting to re-sign) that grab the media's attention. Then came the Revis trade and the draft and even...

Tim Tebow appears at lecture

Eleven days after he was cut by the New York Jets, Tim Tebow's future plans remain up in the air. Since his release, Tebow has not spoken publicly about the dismissal or what his next move will be.

Bank Robber Wearing New York Jets Jersey Goes on Crime Spree in Manhattan, Hitting Five Banks in One Hour

The New York Jets have enough problems this summer to concern themselves with on the field. Unfortunately, Rex Ryan might have to be on the lookout for more than just a starting quarterback.

Report: Jay-Z’s Roc Nation Targeting Geno Smith as Agency’s Newest Client

Welcome to New York, Geno Smith. Late last month, the former West Virginia quarterback fired his agent, Select Sports, after falling to the second round of the NFL draft. Now property of the Jets, Smith is finding that there are perks to being a quarterback in New York City — like being courted by Jay-Z, for one.
