Rex Ryan on T.O.: 'Never say never'

After Terrell Owens took to Twitter to plead with the Jets to take a flier on him, Jets head coach Rex Ryan didn't say the team would do so but didn't rule it out, either.

The New York Jets cannot score on offense. They have to start Tim Tebow if they want to win. Week 6 Preview.

Tim Tebow is the Jets only chance at winning. I've been calling for Tebow to start for New York since they traded for him. In other articles I've noted the lack of talent on offense and less than dominate defense as reasons to start Tebow. This was all before Holmes and Revis went down. The bottom line is that teams that lack offensive talent run option offenses. You...

Tweeted the below, and you can even smell the desperation.  You have to respect the hustle, right?!?!#bbpBox_255494452678901760 a { text-decoration:none; color:#FF6C03...

The Jets need to refuel their engines

At this point the Jets have no answers on offense at all. Tebow or Sanchez? Where’s first round pick from a few years ago in Shonne Greene. Santonio Holmes was their best offensive weapon and he’s done for the season. I think Antonio Cromartie was right when he said he was the second best receiver on the team. He beat Johnathan Joseph badly on a stop and go route on Monday...

Sometimes Las Vegas gets it completely wrong. Right now, as of the typing of this article, the New York Jets are favored by three points over the Indianapolis Colts in the upcoming clash at the New Meadowlands.
