Found December 22, 2012 on AFC East Daily:
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the New York Jets' home bout with the San Diego Chargers.Nick's take:Quarterback Greg McElroy, who will be making his first career start, will be the beneficiary of something Mark Sanchez has lacked all season: fan support. A strong running game, a conservative passing attack and a stout defensive showing against the turnover-prone Phillip Rivers gives the Chargers the higher draft pick come April.Prediction: Jets 17, Chargers 14 (Nick's record: 34-12)Sean's take:San Diego's defense is inconsistent, but it certainly has the ability to force a young, inexperienced passer in McElroy into numerous mistakes. A beatdown at the hands of the Chargers punctuates what has been a mess of a season for New York.Prediction: Chargers 28, Jets 17 (Sean's record: 36-10)Dan's take:The Chargers' defense is allowing a quarterback rating of nearly 90 to opposing signal callers a...

Tebow left to watch Jets play wildcat

If it wasn’t bad enough for Tim Tebow who was overlooked by Rex Ryan for Greg McElroy, he also had to watch Jeremy Kerley play wildcat for the New York Jets. Tebow, who is fully healty, had to watch as Kerley played in the Wildcat, took a direct snap and threw a 42-yard completion to Clyde Gates to set up the Jets’ first touchdown. With that one pass, Kerley eclipsed Tebow’s...

Chargers rack up 11 sacks in 27-17 win over Jets

One after another, the San Diego Chargers barreled into Greg McElroy and slammed him to the turf. A whopping 11 times. That's a lot of bruises for the New York Jets' new - and sore - starting quarterback.

New York Jets – What Do We Need To See In Final Two Games?

The New York Jets final two regular season games basically break down to being nothing more than glorified pre-season games (without any kind of glory I suppose). What should a Jets fan root for these upcoming weeks against the mighty San Diego Chargers and the Buffalo “Fredo” Bills? Greg McElroy - You can’t say at this point it won’t be interesting or mildly entertaining...

The Jets Franchise Holds More Blame Than The Sanchize

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 "...

Jets reportedly feared ‘Tebowmania’ would ruin Mark Sanchez’s psyche

When the New York Jets acquired Tim Tebow last offseason, the same question popped into the minds of almost everyone — why? If Rex Ryan and company were so committed to Mark Sanchez after signing him to a hefty extension, why would they bring in a quarterback who is arguably the most popular player in the NFL and just led a team to the playoffs? One common line of thinking is that...

Jets Fan Projectile Puking During 1st Quarter Of Chargers Game

It seems this guy might’ve had a skunked beer and an undercooked brat before Sunday’s Jets-Chargers game. Listen closely – one of the play-by-play crew members mentions it’s just the first quarter when Artie starts blowing projectile puke. It’s not like Artie would be puking over the Jets play in the first. The Jets had a 14-7 lead and even went to half at 14-10 over the...

Spend some time watching the 2012 New York Jets blooper reel, set to ‘Yakety Sax’

Watching the New York Jets screw up royally never gets old.

Tebow Time over in New York? (Psst...it never started)

So word on the street - and by street, I mean everywhere - is that Tim Tebow won't be returning to the New York Jets next season.First of all, why is this news?Why would the Jets want him back?

Let’s Forget About the Jets; the Giants Are Fighting For the Playoffs
