New York Jets

Welcome to our off-season review of the New York Jets roster at Turn On The Jets. Each week we are going to attack a different position. 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. This week, we start at quarterback…
How should the New York Jets handle quarterback this off-season?
Joe Caporoso - There are few people who were bigger Mark Sanchez defenders/apologists heading into this season than myself. However, at this point I truly think he cannot play quarterback for this team any more. There is too much vitriol from the fan-base towards him and players in the locker room have to question his ability to lead them to victories. New York has worn him down and he is in need of a fresh start elsewhere. Despite the cap hit, the Jets must completely cut ties with their quarterback situation from last year (which includes ridding themselves of the Tebow Media C...

Rex Ryan continues to make news — odd news at that — away from the football field, as we found out last week. Vacationing in the Bahamas, the New York Jets head coach was spotted by the tabloids sporting an interesting tattoo on his right arm. Quickly, the tattoo — featuring Ryan’s wife wearing a Mark Sanchez jersey — became a viral sensation and the butt of jokes across...
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...
Mark Sanchez’s 2012 New York Jets season was full of interceptions and fumbles—and he even threw in an unprecedented buttfumble for good measure. Week after week, Jets Nation watched in horror as our starting quarterback severely underperformed, and even more alarmingly, was not benched. Rex Ryan stuck by his guy, saying that “Mark gives us the best chance to win.”
ANDREW THEODORAKIS/NEW YORK DAILY NEWSNew York Jets head coach Rex Ryan told the media today that if quarterback Mark Sanchez doesn’t improve next season, he’ll probably have to change the tattoo he has of his wife wearing Sanchez’s jersey.“Obviously, if Sanchez doesn’t play better, that number’s changing,” said Ryan per Manish Mehta of the NY Daily News.If I were...
Jason WhitneyDuring the season ending press conference on Tuesday, Rex Ryan joked about his now famous tattoo that bears Mark Sanchez’s jersey number. The tattoo, which is of an erotically posed woman in a #6 Jets jersey (Sanchez’s number) has made headlines in previous weeks and made people wonder if Rex Ryan’s bromance with his starting quarterback was a bit less than healthy...
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...
Last week Rex Ryan took a quick vacation to the Bahamas to escape the Jets mess as I like to proclaim it. During the quiet vacation, things got really noisy again for Rex when he was photographed on the beach, and on his right arm was a tattoo of his wife wearing nothing but a Mark Sanchez jersey.
Ryan took it all in stride like he does everything, and knew he would have to...
According to Mike Garafolo of USA Today Sports, the New York Jets planned on lining quarterback Tim Tebow up as a running back, but never got around to it.
The team had visions of lining up Tebow at running back in traditional sets when they acquired him via trade from the Denver Broncos last March, according to a person with knowledge of the team’s plans at the time of the trade...
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...
The New York Jets have informed quarterbacks coach Matt Cavanaugh he will not be retained when his contract expires later this month. Head coach Rex Ryan informed Cavanaugh of the move Monday, as first reported by The Daily News. Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez has 52 turnovers over the past two seasons and was benched in favor of Greg McElroy late in the season. Sanchez started...
Matt Cavanaugh will not return as the New York Jets' quarterbacks coach after four seasons with the team.
Cavanaugh's contract was due to expire in a few weeks and he was told Monday he would not be part of Rex Ryan's staff next season. Cavanaugh was responsible for the development of Mark Sanchez, who took a step back in his fourth season and was benched late in the...
