Monday Night Football doesn't have the advantage of flex scheduling, which has the potential to produce late season stinkers like the Jets/Titans game the nation witnessed tonight. But thankfully, the 2012 New York Jets may be the greatest example of sporting schadenfreude we've ever seen. Gang green bumbled and stumbled and finally fumbled away the game and their season. Even though Mark Sanchez threw 4 INTs, the Jets somehow still had a chance to win after a shanked punt with under a minute to play. Naturally, Sanchez fumbled the snap on the first play of the drive and after the ball was kicked away, Tennessee recovered for the victory. Mike Tirico then delivered this brilliant line burying putting a nice Christmas bow around the Jets season... "That's the way this game should end, that's the way the Jets season should end. Ugly, and a loss!" After hearing Tirico and Jon Gruden call the 4th Quarter with the enthusiasm of a preseason game, it was fantastic to hear Tirico bury the Jets with so much glee and vigor. What delicious irony that their overhyped, oversaturated, disastrous, comical season would end on ESPN airwaves. By the way, Tim Tebow had a better QB rating than Mark Sanchez tonight thanks to his 0/1 passing for 0 yards. I smell a quarterback controversy!
BEST OF MAXIM
Rex Ryan’s body language as the seconds ticked off the New York Jets’ last gasp for a playoff shot said it all.
Ryan’s reckless use of foul language, the shoulder bump/check of his ailing quarterback Mark Sanchez, the half-hearted mid-field handshake with Tennessee Titans coach Mike Munchak and the pouty stomp off the field told us everything that we need to know.
The Jets have mercifully pulled the plug on Mark Sanchez.
On Tuesday, hours after being eliminated from postseason contention, New York announced that quarterback Greg McElroy will start in Week 16 versus the Chargers.
The move was first reported by the New York Daily News.
While now official, the news comes as a no brainer...
Is it time to play Tim Tebow, or is Greg McElroy the answer? One could only hope that Rex Ryan and the 6-8 New York Jets are ready to make a quarterback change after last nights devastating 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans that took the Jets out of playoff contention. The Titans intercepted four passes by struggling Jets QB Mark Sanchez – winning for the first time in [...]
Mark Sanchez blew the second chance Rex Ryan gave him. Now, it's Greg McElroy's turn to be the New York Jets' starting quarterback.
And, Tim Tebow? Well, he was leapfrogged by the third-stringer, fueling speculation that the team has little confidence in him as a quarterback.
Ryan decided to bench Sanchez on Tuesday after the fourth-year quarterback had another miserable...
With all the media scrutiny surrounding Tim Tebow throughout his NFL career, sometimes it’s hard to separate Tebow the person from Tebow the headline. Combine the oversaturation of all things Tebow with his overly positive persona, and it can be easy to forget Tebow’s feelings in this season’s Jets quarterback controversy.
Tebow feels misled by the Jets, according to Mike Freeman...
The 2012 season has been a forgettable one for the New York Jets. From the Tim Tebow media frenzy to Fireman Ed’s early retirement, the franchise and fan base have dealt with enough madness for one season. Unfortunately, it's still alive and kicking.There will be no Cinderella story for the Jets this year. It's another missed opportunity with no playoff appearance. After...
The Jets hit another new low on Monday night, with Mark Sanchez doing all he could to set the quarterback position back a generation or two. Apparently, the Jets have seen enough.
the Jets have decided to start Greg McElroy — not Sanchez or Tim Tebow — on Sunday against the Chargers.

NASHVILLE Music City might be the home of country music, but the New York Jets departed here Monday night with a case of the blues.
Call them the playoff blues.
With their 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans at a sold-out and soggy LP Field, the Jets (6-8) saw their flickering playoff hopes extinguished in what turned out to be a comedy of errors for the visitors down the stretch...
The New York Jets’ playoff hopes ended in the most fitting way possible. Immediately after a shanked punt gave New York a great chance to come back and beat the Titans on “Monday Night Football,” the Jets turned the ball over on an embarrassing fumble.
The Jets were down 14-10 and had the ball at the Tennesse 25 with 47 seconds left in the game. Quarterback Mark Sanchez was...
Tweet The New York Jets were eliminated from playoff contention as a result of Monday’s 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Contributing to the defeat were five turnovers (four interceptions and a fumble) by quarterback Mark Sanchez, who now has seven fumbles and seventeen interceptions on the season. The frustration among Jets fans has [...]
(Eds: Sports Columnist Jim Litke is on vacation. This is a replacement column. With AP Photos.) By PAUL NEWBERRY AP National Writer In the end, the Tim Tebow era in New York will be remembered for his shirtless jog in the rain.
Really, that's about it.
He barely played at all for the Jets, who clearly didn't do any sort of clear-headed reasoning before they traded for Tebow...
The Tennessee Titans (5-9) beat the New York Jets (6-8) 14-10, last night at LP Field from Nashville, TN.
It's a official. The New York Jets have been eliminated from playoff contention as they lost to the Tennessee Titans.
Mark Sanchez days as the starting quarterback of the Jets look like they are coming to an end.
He was horrible throughout the game by turning the...
