New York Jets
New York Jets at Jacksonville Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET, at EverBank Stadium, Jacksonville - TV: CBS; DirecTV: 711 *TV announcers: Kevin Harlan, Solomon Wilcots *Keys to the game: Quarterbacks will be the story in the pregame buildup. How they're defended is the reason this game is largely irrelevant in the NFL's big picture. The Jets are giving up first downs on almost 42 percent of third downs. A team that thrived because of its linebacker blitzes isn't getting to the quarterback and coverage in the secondary isn't as fail-proof without All-Pro Darrelle Revis. Drops hurt Chad Henne's stat line in Week 13 at Buffalo. He's making the most of a mixed bag of receiving options -- waterbug Cecil Shorts and red-zone threat Justin Blackmon -- but neither player was at full health last week. Without more from a piecemeal running back committee that managed 49 yards on 15 carries last week, Henne will be susceptible to stunts and heavy blitzes if the Jets sell ou...
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
After another bad performance by quarterback Mark Sanchez, MetLife Stadium overflowed with “boos” and “Tim Tebow” chants. But around the NFL, other coaches are starting the best QB to win. San Francisco coach, Jim Harbaugh, made the bold decision to start Colin Kaepernick over starter Alex Smith. The Jacksonville Jaguars have broken their losing streak by starting Chad...
According to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News, Jets owner Woody Johnson prefers to have Greg McElroy start over Mark Sanchez.. Head coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannebaum however want Sanchez back under center this week.
I’m told owner Woody Johnson prefers Greg McElroy to be starting QB. GM Mike Tannenbaum & OC Tony Sparano prefer Mark Sanchez this week...
After throwing three interceptions on 21 attempts with zero touchdowns and a fan base that has totally come down on him, the Jets finally pulled Mark Sanchez in favor of second year QB Greg McElroy. And in the very short time McElroy was given to prove himself running the Jets offense, the young QB out [...]
Mark Sanchez has been replaced as Jets quarterback by third-stringer Greg McElroy in the third quarter after another miserable performance by the New York starter.
Sanchez was 10 for 21 for 97 yards and three interceptions when he left with 4:48 left in the third quarter and the Jets trailing the Arizona Cardinals 3-0 on Sunday. McElroy, active for the first time in his two-year...
Third-stringer Greg McElroy stepped in for a struggling Mark Sanchez and energized the New York Jets to a 7-6 victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
With Tim Tebow inactive as he heals from two broken ribs, coach Rex Ryan pulled Sanchez for McElroy - as the crowd at MetLife Stadium cheered wildly - late in the third quarter. McElroy led the Jets (5-7) to their only points...
If Rex Ryan is going to go down, he’s apparently going to do so with his guy under center.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Ryan is going to name Mark Sanchez his starting quarterback for the Jets’ game this Sunday in Jacksonville against the Jaguars. This comes just a few days after Ryan pulled Sanchez during the team’s 7-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
Tis’ the season for giving, and the Jacksonville Jaguars cheerleaders are kind enough to give us a behind-the-scenes look at their 2013 swimsuit calendar photo shoot. The Jaguars football team has not exactly had too many highlights this season as they are struggling mightily with a 2-10 record and sit tied for the worst record in the league. Given their struggles we felt it...
New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow is not active for the team's game against the Arizona Cardinals because of a rib injury.
Tebow has two broken ribs, suffered at Seattle on Nov. 11, and was limited in practice all week. Third-stringer Greg McElroy is active for the first time in his NFL career and will back up starter Mark Sanchez. Tebow was active Thanksgiving night...
Apparently this is what Tim Tebow gets for minding his own business. The New York Jets backup quarterback has done and said all the right things this season, but that hasn’t shielded him from heavy criticism. Several anonymous Jets players ripped Tebow a few weeks ago and it turned into the biggest media circus of the 2012 season. Now, it would appear that the Denver Broncos want...
Jaguars running back Rashad Jennings injured his head during Sunday's game against Buffalo and will not return.Fantasy Spin:The Jacksonville running game has seen better days to say the least. With Maurice Jones-Drew and Jalen Parmele already on the shelf, the team's best backfield option is now Montell Owens, who entered the game with exactly 83 career rushing yards. Look...
I’m loving New York Jets fans this season. They haven’t given up on this team, they just continue to get more passionate. This “Buttfumble” jersey was spotted in the crowd during yesterday’s victory over the Cardinals in which Mark “Buttfumble” Sanchez was benched in favor of Greg McElroy. McElroy threw the winning touchdown pass in the 4th quarter giving his Jets...
