Turn On The Jets:
New York Jets
Welcome to our first Turn On The Jets Roundtable of the 2012 season. We will be doing this throughout the year to get multiple opinions in a single article to both preview and predict upcoming New York Jets games. Today myself, Chris Gross and Mike Donnelly discuss what we are most looking forward to seeing tomorrow night -

Joe Caporoso - It has to be Tony Sparano’s new offense. We have heard all off-season about the “Ground and Pound” so let’s see it in action. Last pre-season the Jets were awful running the football and it carried over into the regular season. Let’s see Shonn Greene churn out at least 4 yards a carry on his touches and Bilal Powell or Joe McKnight pop a run over 15-20 yards. The Jets are depleted at wide receiver but that is no reason to not give Mark Sanchez a chance to work with his new vertical threats, Stephen Hill and Chaz Schilens. And yes, it will be interesting to see Tim Tebow in action. I don’t think we will see much...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Let me preface this article by saying there is no quarterback controversy for the New York Jets. This isn’t an article meant to argue what Mark Sanchez needs to do to hold off Tim Tebow from being the starting quarterback because barring injury, Sanchez will be under center week 1 versus Buffalo. This is an article looking at what constitues a productive pre-season for Sanchez...
The Jets finally get to mix it up with players other than their own tomorrow night in Cincinnati. Seeing the Bengals should bring positive memories, as the Jets posted back-to-back wins at the end of the 2009 season that allowed a run to the AFC Championship game. The Jets also won their last regular season meeting against the Bengals in 2010, 26-10.But after a disappointing...
During halftime of the New York Jets preseason opener versus the Cincinatti Bengals, Quarterback Mark Sanchez commented on a few things when it came to his performance as well as the rest of the offense. In those comments he also mentioned backup Quarterback Tim Tebow. When asked by reporters to give his feelings about his performance, Sanchez made the following statement.
‘Tis the season for rookie hazing, and that means lots of bad haircuts have been circulating around the NFL and will continue to do so until the start of the regular season. Horrendous haircuts seem to be one of favorite pastimes of veterans during training camp, and the buzz job Jets rookie Antonio Allen received this week was a hilarious reminder of that.
As you can see, the...
CINCINNATI - Tim Tebow's New York Jets preseason debut showed us that The Most Popular Backup Quarterback Ever can run when he needs to and isn't afraid to take a hit or try to stick a pass into traffic.
Nothing's changed there. And nothing's changed with the Jets' plans, either. Rex Ryan has been adamant that Mark Sanchez is his starter and Tebow is his backup...
It gets stranger day after day in New York. With each growing day it appears as if the drama is piling on at Jets camp.
Jets back to practice now after about 10 laps and another stern lecture from Rex Ryan. Another day another drama with this bunch

More Woody Johnson on Tebow coverage: "I knew there would be coverage...
Ha. That’s awesome. Obviously, it is merely a coincidence that the New York Jets head coach is sporting a shirt bearing the double entendre message when he just so happened to agree to pose for a photo with a lovely young woman at what appears to be a bar. Rex Ryan has been happily married [...]
Usually when somebody takes a pay cut in any profession its most likely a bad thing. However for Jets’ Left Guard Matt Slauson a pay cut of $258,000 this season landed him a guaranteed spot on the roster as well as a starting job on the offensive line in 2012. This will now end the supposed competition Slauson had with Vladimir Ducasse for the left Guard slot.
To celebrate the start of the 2012 Jets football season (yeah I know it’s only preseason) I’ll be giving away one copy of Bryan O’Leary’s book “SPYGATE: The Untold Story”. The book is signed by the author “Go Jets!” (Sells for $20 Hardcover and $9.99 Kindle on Amazon)
On Sept 9, 2007 the New England Patriots were caught using a sophisticated cheating system...
CINCINNATI (AP) -- Tim Tebow picked up some yards by running around a few times. Other than that, there wasn't much in his Jets debut.
Certainly nothing to spark any mania back in New York.
Tebow had his best moments while scrambling behind reserves on the Jets' line Friday night. He completed only four passes and threw an interception during the Cincinnati Bengals'...
Fights are becoming a daily occurrence at Jets practice. New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller insists that what happens on the practice field, stays on the practice field.
Well, New York Jets fans the wait is finally over. The previous three seasons have been filled with high expectations and guarantees and this one is almost no different. The players should feel a little bit less pressure since Rex Ryan didn’t dub them Super Bowl champs in the preseason.
The Jets play the Cincinnati Bengals for the second straight preseason and it should be a beneficial...
As preseason games go, we can always find something to construct a plotline. In fact, preseason coverage has an eerily similar feel as Olympic coverage – half of the coverage is spent explaining the background and storyline of an athlete that most have never followed.
A short-lived career for one moment of glory, such are the bottom-roster churning NFL preseason games and the...
Of all the rhetoric, hoopla and nauseating coverage over the arrival of quarterback Tim Tebow, the one thing that I rarely hear discussed is what happens if starting Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez gets hurt?
The Jets' offense looked putrid in their preseason loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, 17-6.
Yes, we know a legitimate workhorse running back has yet to show his face. Yes...
