Found January 07, 2013 on Football Nation:
Tim Tebow suffered through one of the most bizarre season a professional athlete can ever experience, as the New York Jets seemed more concern with selling his jersey than putting him on the football field. That experiment failed, and Tebow will move on to a new opportunity.In 2013, he needs to find a head coach that has the confidence and patience to play him at the quarterback position and not allow his existence on the roster to become a sideshow attraction. The best fit for Tebow is with the Minnesota Vikings.The biggest mystery in sports is if Tebow can sustain long-range success in the NFL, as he’s never been given a legitimate chance to play in an offensive scheme that suits his strengths as a quarterback. This season, the Washington Redskins and Seattle Seahawks have shown that a college-style spread offense of using a hybrid (run/pass) athlete in the quarterback position can be highly successful in the NFL.If a team is looking for a new identity or their own RGIII, then the...

Jets DE: Tebow should have played

Jets defensive end Mike DeVito had a unique opinion on the Tim Tebow situation and wasn't afraid to attach his name to it. See what he said.

The only question is where will it be stamped next?Almost everyone thinks the next landing place will be Jacksonville. Why?CoachesWhat are the chances Chip Kelly supplants Mike Malarkey?Kelly brings in Tebow and the new...

Report: Jets wanted to use Tebow as a running back

When the trade was announced last Spring that would bring Tim Tebow to the New York Jets, many were left scratching their heads. Had the team lost all confidence in Mark Sanchez? Did Rex and Woody fall in love with Tebow after he led a comeback win against the stout Jets defense? Was it a ploy to sell PSLs? The answer to all those questions might actually be a resounding yes. But...

Jets DL Mike DeVito Says Tebow Could Have Helped Team Win More Games

The Jets mess is over, at least the 2012 version of it, but people just won’t let it die down.  Rex Ryan was photographed on a beach, and now all of America knows he has a tattoo of his wife in a Sanchez Jersey.   The Jets are interviewing potential GM’s, but reportedly won’t allow them to make a decision on Ryan just yet.  Oh yea and most importantly, that Tebow guy is...

Jets fire offensive coordinator Tony Sparano

Tony Sparano has been fired as the New York Jets' offensive coordinator after one season in which the offense ranked among the league's worst. Sparano was hired last March to replace Brian Schottenheimer and take over an offense that struggled mightily. Instead, the former Miami Dolphins head coach wasn't able to jumpstart the running game or figure out a way to use...

What took so long? Jets finally fire Tony Sparano

We could've sworn this already happened. It was such a no-brainer that Jets offensive coordinator Tony Sparano would be fired, that we thought it had already happened along with GM Mike Tannenbaum getting the ax. But it actually happened this morning, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reported. Eight days into 2013. So head coach Rex Ryan conveniently goes on vacation while the...

Reports: Jets fire assistant Sparano

The offseason shake-up for the New York Jets continues, with multiple reports saying offensive coordinator Tony Sparano is the latest casualty. The reported move comes one day after the team cut ties with quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh, whose contract expired after he spent four years with the team. The Jets ranked 30th of the 32 NFL teams in total offense this season. Starting...

We will have a roundtable discussion on it, Steve Bateman will submit a film breakdown examining it and our draft staff will look at potential prospects the Jets could add.

New York Jets 2013 Needs

Several teams had worse years than the Jets, but I don’t think anyone had a weirder year. Turned into a circus in the offseason by the media, the Jets lived up to the hype. Neither Mark Sanchez nor Tim Tebow led a touchdown drive all pre-season, but after a blowout win over the Bills week 1 and another win against the Dolphins week 3, this time in overtime, the Jets stood at 2...

Jets Fire OC Tony Sparano

Things have been quiet for the Jets mess for a few days, but things are now back to normal.  After floating in the wings for a few days the team has officially fired offensive coordinator Tony Sparano per ESPN’s Chris Mortensen.   Sparano was brought in with the intentions of spicing up the Jets offense with innovation, and utilizing Tim Tebow in the wildcat formation. Instead...

America’s Newest Crush

America really is such a dirty slut. Whether it’s teen heartthrobs, musicians, television shows, etc., our culture is constantly jumping from one thing to another. The Swizz Beats produced Jay-Z hit “On to the Next One” just about sums up what I’m talking about. One second, we are enamored by some trend, fad, or individual and then – almost in the same instance – we are...
