Unfortunately, there are TWO more weeks of the regular season in the NFL. God why can’t this just end sooner?
I will be doing a Best Bets piece for Week 17 (I’m sure you’re all in tatters with excitement), but Week 17 falls on Dec. 30 this year. I plan on spending the week between Christmas and New Years bathing in alcohol and greasy food, so I’ll just alert you now; I’m probably going to mail in my Week 17 column like Mike Francesa in August.
So because I’m sure you haven’t seen enough year-end “Best Of” or “Top (insert whatever here) of the Year” lists, here come a bunch more. You’re welcome, everybody. Here are my Top 5 in a whole bunch of important things from 2012:
Movies of the Year
1. Zero Dark Thirty - I saw this last night and the first thing that came to mind when I walked out of the theater was “I’ve just seen the best movie of the year, if not the last five years.” Super intense, brilliantly paced, well-acted all around. It
BEST OF MAXIM

The New York Jets tried out Norwegian YouTube kicking sensation Harvard Rugland this week. “It went well,” the 27-year-old Rugland told Norwegian state broadcaster NRK. “They tested me on field goals and kickoffs. Obviously you feel a little more pressure here, but I stayed pretty calm.”
Written By Clifford, Santa Monica, In the 47 years that I’ve been watching professional sports I’ve never seen more fuss made over an athlete who was less talented than Timothy Richard Tebow. To me, he’s the NFL’s answer to former NBA stiff Jon Koncak–a reserve center chosen by the Atlanta Hawks with the fifth pick in the 1985 draft. As I recall, Koncak was rewarded...
Jason WhitneyMark Sanchez headlines possible NFL trade rumors for 2013
The 2012 NFL season is coming to a close, and that means that we are inching nearer to the time
where teams make some interesting moves to try to rework their teams. Here are our NFL picks
for the top names that could be traded in the upcoming offseason.
Mark Sanchez – Sources have already reported that the...
Florham Park, NJ - According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, defensive coordinator Mike Pettine has declined a contract extension from the Jets. Pettine has been Rex Ryan's number two guy for a number of years, since they're days in Baltimore, with Pettine declining the extension he will likely be on the move and he should have very little trouble finding new...
The New York Jets will consider all their options regarding quarterback Mark Sanchez in the offseason, a person with knowledge of the situation tells The Associated Press.
The person, who requested anonymity because the team's personnel plans are private, tells the AP on Thursday that the Jets have not made any determinations involving Sanchez.
That means the benched quarterback...
The New York Jets’ acquisition of Tim Tebow turned into as big of a disaster as many expected it to be. And now, a few days after it was announced that Greg McElroy would replace Mark Sanchez as the team’s starting quarterback, multiple reports say the Jets will trade or release Tebow after the season.
The New York Post, Newsday, and New York Daily News all cited sources saying...
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. — Mark Sanchez knows he won’t be the New York Jets’ starting quarterback this week.
Beyond that, the one-time face of the franchise won’t say whether he thinks he’ll be back with the team next season.
“I really haven’t even thought about it,” Sanchez said Friday. “Honestly, I’m a Jet. That’s all I’ve known.”
Sanchez struggled mightily...
The Jets hand over the keys to Greg McElroy against the Chargers. Across the division, the Patriots get Sunday off against Jacksonville while Miami clings to life as they host Buffalo.
Recently benched quarterback Mark Sanchez has been "coddled" by
the Jets and would be a "bad apple" as a backup in New York next
season, one former teammate says.
The Jets' season has come to a floundering halt after their Monday night loss to the Tennessee Titans 14 -10. Mark Sanchez looked like a klutz, once again, throwing 4 interceptions. This was another in a string of clumsy games that have involved Sanchez this season. He has 24 turnovers total this season, 17 INT and 7 fumbles lost. Everyone's favorite fumble was the "...
Remember those comments ESPN President John Skipper made about the network finally seeing the light and realizing their obsession with Tim Tebow was way too much for way too long? Let's take a look back, shall we?
"I said, 'Guys, we didn't handle this very well.' Going to training camp wasn't a problem. We just stayed on it relentlessly and too long...
Last week: 22 (+3)
Net points per drive: -0.38 (25th)
DVOA: -12.1% (24th)
Weighted DVOA: -15.4% (25th)
With the exception of last week’s Monday Night debacle and a game against the Dolphins (who they split the season series with), the Jets have beaten every mediocre or worse football team they’ve played this season. They finish the season with two such games against...
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen via Adam Schefter, Jets quarterback Tim Tebow will most likely be playing for the Jacksonville Jaguars next season.
And @mortreport reports it’s “a virtual certainty” that Tim Tebow will play in 2013 for the Jacksonville Jaguars.

We already know the Jets are going to get rid of Tebow...
Rumors running rampant that the Jets are looking to trade Mark Sanchez, Tim Tebow may play in the CFL and Michael Vick to the Jets? Erik Talks about what the future holds for the Jets.
Norv Turner knows the end is likely near for him with the San Diego Chargers.
General manager A.J. Smith might be out soon, too.
There are two games left to play before an offseason of uncertainty begins. And, the New York Jets' Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum know the feeling.
