Tim Tebow greeted by anonymous griping from Jets teammates

Mark Sanchez, you’re not alone anymore: Your new backup quarterback is being questioned by anonymous quotes from teammates, too.

Tim Tebow’s trade has just become official, and already unnamed Jets players are talking to reporters about why they don’t think it’s going to work. A New York Post story this morning is headlined “Some Jets wary of Tim circus,” and details that a number of players who will share the locker room with Tebow don’t think he belongs there. None of them, of course, were willing to put their names behind their opinions.

“Several current Jets, who spoke with The Post Saturday, asked not to be quoted but expressed disbelief at the team bringing Tebow in,” the story says. “The idea of a backup quarterback having a press conference is something they can’t wrap their heads around, and they know it’s just the beginning.”

The Jets have led the league in anonymous quotes since the season ended, with unnamed players opining to reporters about topics like Sanchez lacking the leadership the team needs and Santonio Holmes being a divisive presence in the locker room. That has led to a backlash, with Sanchez ripping anonymous sources as “gutless,” and Jets coach Rex Ryan saying anonymous sources don’t speak for the team.

But anonymous sources do speak for themselves. And some of the anonymous sources in the Jets’ locker room apparently don’t think highly of either Sanchez or Tebow.

  1. THIS is the jests… poor management, attention seeking and back stabbing.

    I hope you nj “fans” enjoyed those two fluke seasons. That’s as close as you’ll get to anything other than 4-12.

  2. The Post is a rag and shouldn’t use anonymous sources. No quality newspaper does. Can’t get it on the record, don’t run the comment.

  3. So basically Joe Namath was right…again. This whole signing was a publicity stunt.Having a presser for a backup QB proves that.

  4. “And some of the anonymous sources in the Jets’ locker room apparently don’t think highly of either Sanchez or Tebow.”

    And that would put them in the vast majority.

  5. Im so glad for the arrival of Mr Tebow. Its just what the team needs to repair a fractured locker room….no way it would add to dividing it right? Lets go get a gosh darned snack!

  6. This is what happens when you are run by a 3rd rate front office and a head coach who places no boundries on his players and encourages them to flap their gums. Better getcha popcorn ready!

  7. Rex, Sparano, Sanchez, and Tebow. 4-12 would probably be a blessing for the jets . All of a sudden it doesn’t suck as bad to be a Miami dolphin fan. I wasn’t too thrilled about Garrard as our backup, however I’d take him over Tebow or Sanchez any day!

  8. I can see people who are playing 60-70 plays a game being upset that someone who plays 10 plays a game gets all the attention. It’s amazing how much press one person who is worth a 4th round pick gets.

  9. What a bunch of chicken&$#@ cowards! Just like their loser coach, they’re all talk. They are now officially a travelling circus, and Rex will serve as the Big Top. BWAHAHAHAHAAAA!!!

    Meanwhile, the “lesser” team in NY, according to Rex, just had another parade, and are awaiting their rings in August. Life.Is.Good.

  10. The New York Jets are National Football League franchise which I mock. They make questionable football decisions, and therefore they appear foolish in the eyes of others. Rex Ryan is fat, therefore we must all state this fact clearly, as often as possible. Tebow, is a subpar National Football League quarterback as is Mark Sanchez, because of this, I am now laughing tears at prospect of both quarterbacks who are now teammates. I am also an insufferable douche, and you have read the words that I have typed.

  11. I feel sorry for Tebow. This can’t have been where he wanted to go, although he’ll get more playing time with the Jets, and as soon as it starts to go wrong and he starts turning the ball over the NY media will eat him alive. Like a christian in the lions den.

  12. And the dysfunction continues.

    Talk, talk, talk….lose, lose, lose. More drama than a beauty contest run by Lady Gaga with a bunch of doped up Jersey Shore narcisists.

  13. If this was going on in the Patriots locker room, the malecontents would be identified, and they would be gone. As a Patritos fan, I have no love for the Jets however, they have to take care of this problem in order to have any real chance of winning the AFC East.

  14. There is actually nothing wrong with the Jets holding a press conference, MLB teams does it for just about every “major” player a team bring in. The Jets organization is excited about their new player and they want to show him off, they think he is going to help their team.

    Now, the question is how will Tebow answer questions.
    Question number 1- Do you think you’re a better QB then Mark Sanchez and you should be the starter week one?
    Question number 2 – Has anyone in the Jets organization told you that you will not have an opportunity to compete with Sanchez for the starter job?
    Question number 3 – Now that the spotlight is even brighter by being in NYC, how will you not allow your off the field commitments/ obligations to get in the way of your team/player development?

  15. It starts with the coach. Get a more humble but aggressive coach and they’ll have a much better team in and out of the locker room.

  16. If you can’t put your name to what you say about someone, do you really have the cojones to play team football? Cromarties ‘Ole’ on Timmy’s rushing TD last year says it all! (I’m from Jersey and I can’t believe all the cry-babies on this team! They must be from outta state.)

  17. These are issues with the Jets organization, not Tebow, but it certainly does nothing to dispel the criticism that this is a publicity stunt.

    Tebow most certainly didn’t charter his own jet to NY nor did he arrange his own press conference.

  18. I have no axe to grind with Tebow. For these clowns that have to remain anonymous with there quotes, well that is a different story. Those bozos need to nut up or shut up. With that said, I think it is going to be fun watching this locker room implode.

  19. Quite possibly, in some some stupid idiotic way, this might deflect attention away from the hate the players have for Sanchez. This team is a sideshow and will be blown up in 2013.

  20. Maybe those “anonymous sources” should leave there and come to Pittsburgh. We would welcome you back Mr. Holmes. Would be nice to have a football thrown to you from a REAL quarterback, wouldn’t it? And bring the other unnamed source too. I’m sure Mr. Cromartie would love playing behind the Best Linebackers in the League. Not to mention he and Troy would have like……20-30 interceptions each…….

  21. The media still thinks Tim Tebow is the top story 5 days later.

    And yet I’m the crazy conspiracy theorist to suggest that Roger Goodell made sure this was done simultaneously with the Saints punishments so that America could be distracted from the most outrageous and ridiculous punishment in the history of the NFL.

    The people who are against this outrageous abuse of power have been silenced because all the media wants to talk about is how TIM TEBOW IS COMING TO NEW YORK CITY!

    As long as New York City’s happy and in the spotlight, nobody cares that the Saints fans just had their team’s season stolen from them. Even though there’s evidence that other teams had bounties and nobody else has been punished yet.

    But go ahead and keep talking about the league-orchestrated distraction instead. Smoke and mirrors, baby!

  22. The more people discount The Jets and Tebow this year, the more likely they will be a playoff team.

  23. The jets are becoming a joke. If these players have a problem and feel they need to complain about it, they should at least have the ba**s to say it publicly. All this anonymous crap is cowardly.

  24. It’s not going to be a smooth ride for the underwear model and I am so happy he is out of Denver and has landed with the New Jersey Jets. They have a loud mouth jerk for a coach, a disgruntled disorganized team and now the anti-christ. LMFAO!

  25. It’s Sanchez!!!! That’s right, I’m whistleblowing you and I’m protected by the NFL so u can’t sue me!

  26. Good guy but NOT an upgrade. They will be an absolute mess this year. I am cringing now from the weird coach down to the unreliable starter with a new contract. yikes!

  27. While I agree it is definitely going to be a circus, if you are not man enough to put your name to what you what say, shut your damn mouth and do the only thing you are paid to do, play football. Do hide your face and act like a little bitch. just sayin

  28. Damn. Just, damn.

    I now have to become a (temporary) fan of the previously-hated, hated, HATED! New York Jets because Tebow is now on that miserable blue-State team. Why couldn’t he go to a decent city in a State that’s not crowded with LeftLibProgg atheists ?

    But, a small compensation: my (temporary) Denver Broncos fan-status has now expired.

    Sigh. GO (cough!) JETS!

  29. More faceless comments…I thought that was our job, not that of professional athletes….

  30. I think someone running this site must have caught a leprechaun on St Paddys day and used all their wishes…cause this is by FAAAAR the most entertaining, crazy, gossip, news filled week in off season history

  31. That kind of team mentality is really how your win Super Bowls. If they had any kind of a coach he would tell these guys to ZIP IT ALREADY!!!! What are they gaining out of this?

  32. tebow went to NY because of the money and the market. he’s greedy capitalist just like the rest of us. Being a fan of jesus sells!

  33. Don’t blame Tebow for having the press conference. It is the Jets that are promoting the circus. That being said, the issue with Tebow is that he is not a good quarterback but then neither is Sanchez.

  34. Thank you for the entertainment Jets. This has turned into a horse show – a bunch of horses showing their asses to a bunch of horses’ asses showing their horses.

  35. This years Jets team are going to make the 78 Yankees (Bronx Zoo) and the 86 Mets (nuff said) look like choir boys. The NYC media is going to have a field day with these guys, its going to be fun and then just sad.

  36. Tebow is a good guy, I wish him all the luck. I just hope the Jets lose! It is hard to think of Tebow losing though…..the man just wins everywhere he goes. I really thought Jacksonville was a good place for him. He is from there, there QB situation is pretty much open and new ownership WANTED him there all along! Something tells me he could have been the face of that franchise for 10+ years! I think if a team could just wipe away all that they know about QB play and just let the young man play and learn and have fun, they would have a Good Quaterback that wins games. I really don’t get the knock on a guy that WILLS his team to victory. I seems like his team mates dig deep and want to win for him. How can I guy like that be hated so much? Is it because of religion? He just seems like such a great person, I really don’t know how he could be bad for any locker room. We all joke and laugh at him and put his skills down, but the truth is he is a winner and a better person than most of us will ever be! …..Please someone comment on why people want Tebow to Fail, cause I don’t get it……….

  37. This starts at the top with an out of touch richie rich owner

    He comes to the game in his helicoptor and is out the door and taking off before most of the fans are in there cars

    I have seen this time after time he is gone out the door he has nothing more then a passing interest in the team its a play thing for him

    Worse then that he blocks traffic so his custom golf cart can get him to his helicoptor

  38. Last time I checked, the Jets were irrelevant and missed the playoffs. Maybe the locker room needs a little shake up.

  39. This team and city prefer headlines over hardware. As a Steelers fan, New York is the center of MLB NOT the NFL. Green Bay, Pittsburgh and Dallas all carry more weight than the Big Apple.

  40. As they say, if you have nothing good to say about anybody, shut up or man up and say it to their face.

    Anonymous commenters only makes the team disintegrated in any team sport.

    Dude, you are straight up delusional!

    Why would Goodell want a distraction from the punishment that proves to the world and the courts that player safety is a top priority?

    Tebow and the Jets have nothing to do with the Saints players and management lying to the NFL and covering up the bounty system they had. And it really doesn’t sound like New York is “happy” about Tebow or gives a flying flip about bountygate when they have their own issues. Go suck some crawfish.

    The Jets have the two best back ups in football, now sign a starter
    ———————————————–

    Good one. Unfortunately though, the Jets just traded their best backup to the Colts.

  43. it would serve him right to fail! and trust me, he will fail all on his own like he did in Denver because he didn’t win us ANY games and I’m so tired of hearing that. Tebow is so “humble” yet when those billboards went up did he back up Orton and say he’s our starter? nope he enjoyed every second of it. he’s humble and good yet he lies about not being allowed to make the decision on where to play next to try and stay in the good graces of the Jags so when he fails miserably and is ran out of NY he has somewhere to go. but he chose this place because he knows he will start because Sanchez is awful. but so is Tebow. he needs to go back to college and again there where professional skills aren’t needed because he has none.

  44. rick santorum’s wife said god told her that rick should get in the race. if i was a reporter, i would ask her “why?’ did god want him to finish a distant second with no chance of winning?” same question for tebow!! bazinga!!!!

    Maybe those “anonymous sources” should leave there and come to Pittsburgh. We would welcome you back Mr. Holmes. Would be nice to have a football thrown to you from a REAL quarterback, wouldn’t it? And bring the other unnamed source too. I’m sure Mr. Cromartie would love playing behind the Best Linebackers in the League. Not to mention he and Troy would have like……20-30 interceptions each…….

    More proof that pitt fans should be seen – and not heard………….. 20 – 30 int’s each??????
    pretty intelligent, realistic talk from the awesome gene-pool in western pa…………….

  46. This is not Tebows fault…Jets Mgmt.are betting this is going to sell Tickets !!! BUT…..when the Jets start a log run of losses , we may see this whole move.. Backfire…. in the worst way !

  47. As a Bronco fan I feel so sorry for Tebow he is a good dude and he was just put in the worst place he could have been put.

    What’s really funny though is all these jackass Jets fans ranting how they hate Tebow till in week 6 he takes over as starter and leads them to the playoffs.

    This willl be what jets fans will be saying then oh Tebow is the best people should lay off Tebow he isn’t as bad as they say how else could he win all those games.

    Just watch I know this for fact cause as I said I am a Bronco fan

  48. Overall this is not a Tebow or Sanchez problem. The problem is that there a Jet player who believe a little bit too much in themselves. It appears these unichs think with a different QB they would have gotten past the AFC championship game two of the last three years.

    My belief is that the Jets needs to evolve the culture and slowly bring in examples of effort and teamwork. Tebow is not just a guy to back up sanchez; his work effort hopefully will embarrass those lazy jags that think they made it and can just watch the cash pile up.

  49. I am wondering how many reporters asked the Broncos about their opinion on Caleb Haney being their backup? (all jokes aside!). None – because Tim Tebow is catnip to the media – including this site. It’s not about football, it’s about their desire to compete with the likes of kim kardashian – and it’s sad.

    Tebow might be a good fit as a wildcat if the Jets run that. He’s a young QB who needs to work on some things. He’s a wonderful and charitable human being…someday as fans we might get a reporter who writes something like this and then moves on…but for now we get annonymous quotes printed about a backup quaterback – and Jets have the problem? Please media look for a mirror somewhere!

  50. Duh, the locker room is divided and dysfunctional. The leader of the team isn’t even there yet. He’ll be there at noon on Monday. It’s Tebow time, like it or not!!!!!!

  51. Geeze, this just started and it’s already pathetic–we need Rex to start yapping and get this bi-plane production off the ground. Heh, at least you helped start a New York football team begin their run to the Bowl last year–just wasn’t the nyets.

  52. Ive been a Jets and Sanchez fan for a while now and this Tebow thing is disturbing. Its one thing hate the Jets because our HC asks for it but lay off Mark Sanchez if you look at the numbers Mark is on par if not better than QBs around his age. I still do not understand why ownership would want to take away playing time from any of these 2 kids(cant have 2 QBs). Rather than just letting Sanchez learn the ins n outs of football. No disrepect to Tebow I appreciate his winning ways but this has the potential to be a house divided come this season

    The Post is a rag and shouldn’t use anonymous sources. No quality newspaper does. Can’t get it on the record, don’t run the comment.
    ———————————————————-

    Really?

    Ever hear of a “rag” called the Washington Post?

    Brought down a sitting President of the United States, over a little thing called “Watergate”?

    Used an anonymous source called “Deep Throat” ….. maybe you’ve heard of the whole thing?

    Read much, Yets fan?

  54. You know, Sapp was just reprimanded for making comments about Shockey quoting anonymous sources but it is ok for this and other rags to print crap like this to capitolize on Tebows/Jets name. Why dont you print something useful like a updated salary cap or whos left in free agency. People bitch at their jobs everyday but doesnt prevent them from doing it so to say people had something to say doesnt mean much

  55. Too many Jet’s players are gutless, selfish, whining babies!

    They have a head coach who can’t control the locker room and I can’ imagine a worse place to play right now. Miami looks like paradise compared to Jet’s.

    My wife is a Jet’s fan and I enjoyed the good-natured back and forth ribbing, but now it would just be too cruel!

  56. re: “Some Jets wary of Tim circus”

    There’s *already* a Jets circus!

    What’s one more ring?

    Or clown?

    Or whatever.

  57. If everyone thought that the Jets were fractured before wait until mini camps when Tebow will start to be able to spread his influence in that locker room. That team will be so divided that they won’t be able to stand each other… Kyle Orton knows all about what Tebow’s influence can mean for someone else

  58. What goes around comes around. And don’t kid yourself it won’t take the players and coaches long to figure out who is against Tebow and Sanchez, for that matter.

  59. Jets are jerks. Tebow is probably the best back up QB in the league. If you feel unsecured for Sanchez so be it.

  60. Poor Tebow. Elway actually managed to send him to a worse situatuion. Can you hear the circus music playing in the background. And don’t blame Tebow this team has been a joke since the end of last year and no one in the organization has done anything to rectify the problem. Instead they decided to make it worse. So here is what is guaranteed to happen. You can book it: Ignorant jet fans will spend the next 5 months trying to make themselves feel better by calling anyone with a negative opinon “haters.” Then the team will procede to collapse horribly on the field. Then those same ignorant jet fans will blame it on Tebow when in fact the problem existed long before he arrived. Then Rex Ryan will guarantee a super bowl in 2013.

  61. I wouldn’t worry Jets fans.

    If there’s one person out there who knows how to develop young quarterbacks and de-escalate volatile situations, there’s no question that Rex Ryan is at the top of that list.

  62. I don’t buy it.

    This site is starting to publish articles that are simply written to get a response. To me, if you are quoting anonymous sources, you might just be writing B.S. based on your own opinion to see how riled up you can get Jet’s Fans.

    If you don’t have a source you can quote, don’t write it. Otherwise you are just adding to the problem. Articles like this don’t give any credibility to this site. Is this place turning into a Tabloid or what? We get the same anonymous sources in the National Enquirer. What a bunch of crap.

    Why don’t you leave the poor kid alone. Tebow is still just a kid and can’t catch a break, simply because of what he represents. With all the straight up idiots in the NFL like Deshaun Jackson and Cromartie, Brandon Marshall, etc.; you are going to give an honest, hard working guy like Tebow a hard time? What has happened to this country?

  63. Yes the Jets shouldn’t have called a press conference for this trade, but Tebow, being the good guy everyone says he is, should know there shouldn’t be a press conference and requested not to do it. But then again all he cares about is having his name in the paper.

  64. I’m 100% serious if I were a GM of another team I would have a tough time trading a 7th for either of these QB’s the Jets will throw out their this year. Between Sanchez’s head and Tebow’s “real” qb skill and distraction, it would be tough to part with. I probabably would for Tebow and get the circus over with now and move him to h-back/fullback.

  65. I feel sorry a litle bit for Sanchez. Even when it looks like the team is behind him, they talk behind his back or lok for other QBs. Not much loalty on that team is there? He still gets paid well, but it has to really mess with your head. If they can’t get behind him, maybe they sould trade him. Don’t get me wrong I WANT to see the Jets lose, but thier Managment is really messed.

  66. I live in NY but I am not a JETS fan. Its hard not to follow the goings on though cuz they are in the news all the time. Being an avid sports fan the one glaring thing I can identify as being wrong with the Jets is that they do not play or act as a team in a team sport. They are a bunch of spoiled me first players all grouped together and when one doesn’t get his way he pouts and whines about it. When something goes wrong its always the other guys fault after all, look at me I am great! Plus there is no true leader amongst the players like most other teams have. So in iconic NY style you can say in one word their Superbowl chances- Foragetaboutit!!!

  67. I keeping seeing those that say none of this is Tebow’s fault…Well, it kind of is.. He has been self-promoting since high school. Now, he had the chance to return to his roots and be the home town hero, it’s not good enough. He must have the bright lights of the big media market. Make no mistake, the Jaguars gave a very similar offer to the Broncos, and Timmy chose.

  68. Sanchez is soft. Tebow will take his job not far into the season. For jets fans that like Sanchez, you should be happy they got Tebow. Sanchez needs to be pushed. I guarantee you he’ll damn sure be pushed now! As for these yellow bellies in the team, grow some balls and speak publicly or find yourself another team, sissies!

  69. Wow they can’t even let the kid get off the subway before they start hating on him. What a joke of a team and franchise. welcome to hell tebow! And to think you chose this place. The New Jersey jets representing the armpit of America well.

  70. IMO, Tebow is going to the Jets just in time. Sounds like they needs some class on the team, something they have been lacking for years. The Jets whine factor sounds like a Boeing 747 revving it’s engines.

  71. neither of the QBs are any good? so there are some guys with a brain in the Jets locker room after all…. whoda thunkit?

  72. I’m not a Jets fans but I have to say I thought Stanton was the perfect backup QB. He is good enough to win a few games if the starter goes down and has proven to be a team player. He has good skills and was willing to be the backup. I just don’t get why the team “invited” a QB controversy.

    Not living in NY, I might be missing something, but from afar, it seems like Stanton and Greg McElroy are the classiest and most “team first” of the bunch.

  73. jetslag44years | Mar 25, 2012, 8:10 AM EDT
    The Jets have the two best back ups in football, now sign a starter

    I couldn’t said it better.

  74. This circus in NY was a result of the way the team was built. They traded or missed on a bunch of draft picks and them assembled a bunch of bad actors and miscreants with bad contracts a coaching staff that lets the players run wild and do whatever they want. Inmates running the asylem. The implosion started last year and will continue until they blow it up. They’re becoming the next version of the Raiders

  75. Let the circus begin! Only in NY will you get so much hype over 2 Qbs not worth a damn.

    RAIDER NATION!!!!

  76. The news reports appear to contain quotes from from P.U.N.K.

    (Published Useless Noise from Knuckleheads)

    If you can’t say it to a guy’s face or at least put your name to the quote, you shouldn’t shower in the men’s locker room either.

  77. I have never seen a bigger group of babies than the New York Jets. College and high school teams show more maturity than these p*u*s*s*i*e*s!

    They are the laughing stock of the NFL.

    I LOVE IT!!!!!!

    Ha ha ha ha ha 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  78. This ship started to sink big time last year. ExtendIng Sanchez to a huge deal, then Bringing in cant help. Wait until the first INT Shanchez throws. Then it really going to get out of hand. Everyone loves a good circus, and no better place then The Big Apple (or New Jersey, depending on how you view it)

  79. Damn, you Tim Tebow worshippers are scary. Didn’t the Bible say “thou shall have no other God but me.” What part of that are you folks missing in your relentless empty praising of this man.

    We are well aware of the circus like atmosphere his over-zealous fans turned the Broncos team into. The Jets and all it’s dysfunctions, don’t need more “twilight” fans and clownishness.

    “Damn. Just, damn.

    I now have to become a (temporary) fan of the previously-hated, hated, HATED! New York Jets because Tebow is now on that miserable blue-State team. Why couldn’t he go to a decent city in a State that’s not crowded with LeftLibProgg atheists ?”

    Serr8d, I just want to let you know that the Civil War ended hundreds of years ago. You can let go your hate for the North and put away your gun. It’s safe.

    Wow, is this the crowd Tim is bringing to NY? Oh my.

    BTW PFT, where is Sanchez’s stats and accomplishments as a 4 year QB. You seem to have no problem ignoring the facts and trouncing all over his ego while promoting your “choir-boy image” wannabe QB at ever turn. You have no problem repeat those “unnamed sources” negative comments against Sanchez because it suits your agenda. But here’s the truth, for as bad as you’re making Sanchez out to be, he never back into any of the play-offs like Tim did last season.

    Sanchez helped carried the Jets into the play offs two seasons in the row and almost took them into the play-offs only to missing out his third full season as a Jet. Something tells me if Tim had accomplished all that Sanchez had you would be promoting them endlessly like you are his well aided 7 wins in 8 games hype. It took Eli Manning 4 years to make it to the SB, his brother 8. Yet Sanchez is already being told he’s not good enough just because he failed to take the Jets to the play-offs. Well if you treat him like you do Peyton and all your more “preferred” QBs maybe he will succeed.

    But it seems you folks in the media, not only impose your biases unto the NFL fans but you seem to have forgoten what integrity means, and your selective memory reigns supreme when you want to have your own ego diven way.

    NFL is now owned by the MEDIA. Money does talk.

  80. Jets under Rex and Sanchez 32 W 22 L
    In the playoffs 4W 2L
    If your team did better than that, than you can say your team is better than the Jets.
    If your team didn’t, than you must say your team is not as good as the Jets.
    In either case, you can not say the Jets suck. Their record proves otherwise.

  81. Reading and hearing stuff like this makes me SO GLAD he didn’t come to Jacksonville. And it makes me question the sanity of the owner who wanted him in Jacksonville.

  82. How do the Jets ever expect to win if they don’t back up their QBs? You stand by your teammates, you don’t trash them before you even played with them.

  83. This is one definition of a Loser…

    A person who fails at most everything he or she does, then tries to compensate by pointing the finger of blame on everyone else.

    The Jets are full of Losers. The Haters on this blog are also Losers.

    Tim Tebow has accomplished more with less skills than any person on the Jets team and probably any person commenting on this site. He’s 100% heart and that is why he has a loyal following.

    Stop Hating. Stop acting like a Loser. Give this kid a chance.

  84. 2009 9-7, backed into the playoffs, no div title, no home playoff game.

    2010 11-5, no div title, no home playoff game. But, good yr.

    2011 8-8, no playoffs, almost backed in again.

    Reasons to think trend is not downward: 0

  85. Actually, as a Pats fan, to quote the same Jet HOFer to the Jets front office,

    “I wanna kiss you!”

  86. @ suhisabeast90 I could not agree more. The kid has done everything right, won football games and has been a true romodel and people rip on him just to rip on him. Tebow is a true ambassador to the sport. I would have liked him up here in Buffalo. Say what you want, the guy is a proven winner, try to argue that.

  87. @ mensamember

    There you go again with that wins and losses crap….I thought I told you in the other post, IT DON’T MEAN A THING IF U AIN’T GOT THAT RING…just ask the Buffalo Bills….I’ll take 9-7 and a SUPER BOWL over 14-2 or 11-5 and nothing to show for it….you’re just as delusional as that dysfunctional team you root for….GO GIANTS!

  88. For his own sake, Tebow should have tried to push for a trade to the Packers since they allegedly showed interest. That team has coaches that are known for being able to help young QB’s with mechanical issues and they probably would have enjoyed the challenge. There would be no QB controversy because Rodgers is a stud. And you know the Packers fans would shank anyone trying to chant “Tebow” at training camp. A couple of years in GB could have done this kid a world of good, but now he’s landed in a place where he’ll probably regress.

  89. if this was supposed to motivate Sanchez as the Jets brass has said or is this really about selling tickets ? I think neither personally I think Tebow was signed to save the souls of the lost and to show them the error of their ways. not sure whether to LMAO or cry uncontrollably. I know one thing for sure this will be Rex Ryans last yr and the Jets aint winning no Super Bowl this yr.

  90. Put on your big boy pants and put your name to your gripes. Or better yet, have the huevos to approach the person you have issue with and hash it out and see if you can’t come to understand this person you have issue with. You’ll find him to be 1 of 3 things. 1. Not as bad as advertised-a pretty decent person and all around good teammate, 2. about the same, or 3. worse than you thot.

    Tebow and his propensity to continually cast his pearls before swine does himself no favors with the cynical and godless-not a crime, just shortsighted but I’d still prefer having to spend a day with this guy over tools like Bill Mahr, Keith Oberman or Chelsea Handler.

  91. The Nyets are going to be the most publicly dysfunctional and entertaining circus in all of sports this coming season. We’re going to have “anonomous players” shanking each other in the back, Rexy blowviating and drooling all over the place, Justin Bieber-Sanchez retreating into a shell like a little girl because he knows his teammates have no confidence in him, Santurdio Holmes destroying the locker room, the Jets fans acting like the Romans at the Colosseum foaming at their mouths for Tebow and of course…the NY media fanning the fire and stirring up as much crap as they possibly can.

  92. Tim Tebow is an fine young man. He has tried to do the best he can with what skills he has for whatever organization he has been a part of. That said, I can’t imagine this stint with the Jets working out for him. The front office must be having seances to contact Al Davis on how to take a valid franchise and run it into the ground. Tim doesn’t have the skills to be an everyday quarterback in the NFL, and while his christian fan base would like to make this fiction become reality only because they wish it so, it won’t happen. Much like the bible, it’s not reality.

    I wish Tim well, and hope that he succeeds in whatever endeavor he pursues. I just don’t think this is the one.

  93. Tebow! Tebow! Tebow!! Is it September yet??? Soo happy that The Duke shipped this circus out of Denver. I feel bad for Tim, especially since this “circus” had nothing to do with him, and everything to do with Skip Bayless and all of the other blind zealots that think with their guts instead of their brains.

  94. the anonomous jets should put their name on it..but the bounty snitch shouldnt?..lol..i think both should put their name on it and be men.

    This years Jets team are going to make the 78 Yankees (Bronx Zoo) and the 86 Mets (nuff said) look like choir boys. The NYC media is going to have a field day with these guys, its going to be fun and then just sad.

    ………………………………………………………………………..

    probably more like the 92 Mets…

    Why do you Dolphin fans always troll on Jets stories? Dude, worry about your own team! You guys have not WON ONE FREAKIN PLAYOFF GAME IN OVER A DECADE! It must be an envy thing, especially with no playoff wins to speak of.

    In that regard, Garrard is actually a pretty good fit. He has 1 playoff career win over the first decade of his career, something the Dolphins organization aspires to. In essence, Mark Sanchez has accomplished four times what Garrad has in a decade in his first three seasons in the league!

    Well, actually more than that. Garrard has a 3-3 TD-INT ratio with a career playoff QB rating of a 76. Hey at least he has a QB rating in the playoffs. Thats another quality the fins organization looks for.

    Now compare that to Sanchez, with a 9TD-3 INT ratio, and a 94+ qb rating ranking 7th all time in NFL playoff history. Yea, you can do the math. Not to mention he was the best player on the field in a lot of those 6 playoff games he played in, including outplaying Carson Palmer, Philip Rivers, Tom Brady, and Ben Roethlisberger.

    But yea, I could see how you feel better now. Call me when you win your first playoff game since beating the Colts in 2000!
