Even though it’s been reported that rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill has been a disappointment so far and is still a very raw player, Jets head coach Rex Ryan has decided to start him along with Santonio Holmes for this week’s opener against the Bills.

I guess in the end Rex had no choice since it was either Hill or Jeremy Kerley.

Rich Cimini of ESPNNewYork.com has listed Jets rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill as his biggest disappointment so far this season because of how raw he is.
“Talented, but oh so raw. Needs time to develop, but he doesn’t have that luxury on this team,” wrote Cimini.
There’s no doubt that Hill has the potential to be a very good receiver in the NFL. The problem is that...
While people in the media are attacking the young wide receiver from Georgia Tech, I still believe that it was a good pick. His own head coach Rex Ryan disagrees with me, and is not even sure if it was the best pick for the organization.
“Well, nothing told me he would (contribute),” Ryan told Don Banks of Sports Illustrated. “Nothing. When I saw the tape (of his collegiate...
Santonio Holmes is making news again. This time the Jets' mercurial wideout shared his quarterback's first reaction when the Tebow trade winds swirled into New York.
Week One is upon us, and the NFL season is set to begin in earnest this coming Sunday. The AFC East should provide us with some interesting storylines for the first set of games.One team will see its future at quarterback take his first steps in the NFL, one will see another team’s franchise signal-caller do the same, and the other two will be facing off against each other in...
How did Mark Sanchez react to the news that the Jets had acquired Tim Tebow? Maybe not quite as well as we've been led to believe.
The buffalo wings, chips and dip are ready, now it's time for some NFL football. Week one of the NFL season starts with a bang and finishes with a good ole' AFC West showdown. Week one doesn't disappoint, but many bettors believe the first week is always the hardest to pick. We are told to never believe in the preseason, but being unable to score a touchdown until week...
The Jets haven't even opened their regular season, the circus is already in full effect. The biggest storyline for this year's version of Gang Green centers around the men under center -- the quarterbacks. The Jets grabbed back page supremacy this offseason by trading for Tim Tebow.

On the surface, the Tim Tebow trade did not appear to bother Mark Sanchez. Reporters fished for some sign of panic from the Jets starting quarterback all summer but were only treated to cliches like “whatever’s best for the team” and “we’re just trying to win games.” In fact, Sanchez even expressed confidence that Tebow was a backup for New York above all else. But according...

New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes told the Associated Press via NFL.com that quarterback Mark Sanchez was “rattled” when the Jets traded for Tim Tebow in the offseason.
“I think since Day 1, it was a focus that kind of rattled him a little,” holmes said. “And I use that word only to say that, ‘Wow. How did this happen?’ Those were words that...
When Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets, many people wondered why they did. They also wondered how Mark Sanchez would handle it.
Sanchez has handled this situation, like a professional. He hasn’t taken any cheap shots at Tebow, and he has embraced the situation. Well, at least it seems. According to Santonio Holmes, Sanchez was floored by the trade. “I think since Day...
