With the New York Jets currently being 4-6, many might say it is time to panic with their team.
Mark Sanchez just simply is not getting the job done in New York. I understand that there are other concerns than the quarterback position, like the problems in the secondary. Even the head coach Rex Ryan is receiving some criticism for his decision-making.
It may seem like the time to clean house for the Jets organization.
So far this season, Sanchez has put together a 53.5 completion percentage with 2,038 passing yards, 11 touchdowns nine interceptions and maintaining a 73.4 quarterback rating. An 11/9 touchdwon/interception ratio is not very good, to say the least.
I feel that ever since they made an off-season trade to get Tim Tebow, they obviously felt that one day he can start for their organization. Why not make that decision now since Sanchez is struggling?
I feel that Sanchez’ main problem is that he can’t handle the pressure from the defensive lineman. It seems as that when he sees the pressure, he is forced to make a bad throw, which ends up turning the ball over.
Tebow is obviously a lot better at making the defenders miss, but he also lacks the throwing power that Sanchez has. The Jets don’t exactly have a primary receiver to throw to, so why not use Tebow? Along with that, use running backs Shonn Greene and Joe McKnight in the backfield and pound that ball to the defense.
As we have seen in his playing days with the Denver Broncos, Tebow does have the ability to throw the ball down the field. Although it is not always consistent, I agree, but for the most part, if somebody is open, he will get it there.
Based on a story in the New York Daily News, which cites several Jets players anonymously ripping Tebow by calling him “terrible” while suggesting he’s not even a quarterback, it seems some of the people in that losing Jets locker room needed the reminder.
Let’s be fair, here: It doesn’t appear, at least on the surface, that coach Ryan was among those to anonymously rip Tebow’s ability. But Ryan also still hasn’t switched to Tebow, which says enough about his own opinions of him, considering that Sanchez ranks last in the NFL in completion percentage, has completed less than 50-percent of his passes in five games this season and has thrown multiple touchdowns just twice in nine games.
NFL writer Jeff Darlington feels it’s one thing to decide that one quarterback gives your team the best chance to win. That’s fine. It’s also something else to ignore the fact that Tebow beat your own team last season when you spent the whole week beforehand doubting his ability.
Perhaps the biggest issue here is the biggest condemnation of the Jets organization in the wake of their “realization” that Tebow isn’t a good practice player. They have shown that they have the clear inability to evaluate players before they acquire them.
I agree 100-percent with his assertions. In my opinion, it is time for a change in New York and why not start with starting the exciting, young Tim Tebow? The Jets may also consider firing Ryan. I wouldn’t be surprised with anything that the Jets organization does, because any move they make at this point is out of desperation.
I am excited and anxious to see what they do in New York, because obviously it is time for a change.

Sometimes, we all just need a little pick-me-up at the office. Just something to know people care. Well, Tim Tebow got exactly that on Tuesday, as an “anonymous fan” sent him a bouquet of balloons bearing the phrase “You’re special” on them, according to the New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch. After Tebow’s previous week, in which he was bashed by anonymous teammates, it’s...
Tim Tebow has been unhappy as of late due to his ever-shrinking role in the Jets’ offense, showing disinterest both through the press and on the sidelines.
Leave it to one of his devout followers to turn the backup quarterback’s frown upside down.
On Tuesday, New York Post reporter Bart Hubbuch snapped a photo of a “You’re Special” balloon bouquet, which was sent to Tebow by an anonymous fan.
Hubbuch’s colleague, Jane McManus, noted that Tebow thought it was “nice,” and said these kinds of things “happen sometimes.”
Hey, they don’t call them ‘Tebow-maniacs’ for nothing.
I promised I’d start again T…

As we are only one day away from Thanksgiving, this story about New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is a rather-heartwarming one.

The New York Jets (4-6) have a playoff pulse. They completed dominated the Rams (3-6-1) in St. Louis in one of their most complete games of the season.
The only negatives of the game, besides Tim Tebow’s incredible lack of productivity, was Nick Folk having another field goal blocked and his first outright miss of the season.

The New York Jets' winning formula Sunday against the St. Louis Rams Sunday was throwback 2009: stout defensive play, a steady rushing attack and mistake-free quarterbacking from Mark Sanchez. Running back Bilal Powell rushed for two scores, and Sanchez connected on 15 of 20 passes for 178 yards and a touchdown in the Jets' 27-13 victory. And get this -- Sanchez didn'...
4-6 is not the type of record to go celebrating in the Meatpacking District over. The way New York athletes often do after big victories. Ending a three game skid and moving beyond a “Terrible Tim” storm that threatened to derail focus on the Rams is.

The New York Jets season received a shot of life with a 27-13 win over the St. Louis Rams. However, it will take an upset over the New England Patriots this Thursday night to truly make them relevant in the AFC playoff picture again. Here is a collection of early thoughts -

After everyone is full of turkey, or if you are Canadian like me and just like football, the NFL has an AFC East rivalry game featuring the (7-3) Patriots and the (4-6) New York Jets.
