    The NY Jets, starved for headlines, make their cuts first.

    If they really want to make news, they could release incompetent backup qb Tebow. He’s certainly earned it.

  2. misterplowthatnameagainismisterplow says: Aug 31, 2012 11:26 AM

    Would love to see the Falcons pick up Grimm from Tampa. That kids a player.

  3. jimmysee says: Aug 31, 2012 11:31 AM

    Shakey Smithson flashed potential in Green Bay last year. Would not be surprised to see him show up elsewhere.

    Potentially — a similar career trajectory to David Clowney — another talented ex-Packer who found no room in the crowded receiver corps in Green Bay.

    @cuda1234

    Uh, no. This is the NFL version of a garage sale, one man’s junk is another man’s treasure. Jets are just opening up early, and should be in search of a capable WR, OL, TE today.

    Can’t wait for you and the other Tebow bashers to eat 3 plates of Crow this year when he scores a few game winning TD’s.

    Make sure you come back to this board and admit your error in judgement and if applicable I will do the same.

  5. bubba9er says: Aug 31, 2012 11:54 AM

    If this is the NFL’s garage sale, I expect to see a lot of foot traffic around the 49ers’ yard when they put their wares out to browse. Not really a sale though. You can just kinda pick up whatever you want and put it in your trunk.

  6. cuda1234 says: Aug 31, 2012 12:01 PM

    Tebow will certainly score some TD’s this year and if he were listed as a fantasy rb (where he belongs) I would draft him.

    Its pretty well documented at this point that he’s one of the most selfish players in the game – when its glory time he will call his own number. No rb has ever had a great season playing with Timmy – not in high school, not at Florida and not in Denver – and I don’t see it happening this year either.

    ————————————
    Or incompetent starting qb Sanchez.

  8. sd1024 says: Aug 31, 2012 12:20 PM

    Mark Sanchez is the most coddled QB in history. Only Sanchez can have all his mistakes covered up by offensive line, WR’s etc. Where were the excuses for Blaine Gabbert or Colt McCoy? Those guys work with a fraction of the talent…do not have 3 Pro Bowlers on their O-Line and when they struggle, people hang them…they dont run right out and blame sacks or the fact their #1 WR’s are named Mike Thomas and Greg Little The Jets, their writers and their fans are in denial and the longer they are, the longer the defense has to carry a bad offense.

  9. realitypolice says: Aug 31, 2012 12:50 PM

    zachintosh:

    Good point. I know it was against weaker competition, but the only Jets QB who has looked even half decent this preseason is Greg McElroy. He is at least 3 to 5 times better at the QB position than Tebow. Like in Denver, Tebow will “earn” the backup QB with his name alone.

    Also, I watched the Giants game the other night and the local Giants announcers couldn’t stop raving about Matt Broha.

    Funny.

  10. clubergo says: Aug 31, 2012 12:57 PM

    Sanchez was told by Carrol he needed to stay in College another year… but after seeing a weak draft at QB his advisers (family) convinced him to come out….great idea.. Barkley stays with all the sanctions..Luck stays… we will see who is arond in 5-7 yrs….it aint Rex or Sanchez

  11. jesse834 says: Aug 31, 2012 2:10 PM

    Interesting, Sean Considine makes the team over Omar Brown who has been nothing but awful. Good to see Tommy Streeter who is raw land on the IR with a “foot injury” since he likely would have not made past waivers.

    OH, I see. STATS are more important than winning. Got it.

    Other than the NFL, Tebow has won at every level. If stats mean that much to you, I hope you enjoy your fantasy season.

    Me? I prefer REAL football.

  13. whereyaat says: Aug 31, 2012 3:05 PM

    Surprised that Marvin McNutt didn’t make the Eagles, considering he was a baller in college. Then again, the Eagles seem to be pretty set at WR. I wonder if some other team will take a chance on that dude?

  14. firstand4ever says: Aug 31, 2012 3:30 PM

    Anything the Jets do equals “starved for attention”. Just lame.

    The Jets are not starved for attention. They are the 10th most valuable sports team in the entire world. Valued at 1.14 billion.(See Forbes top 50 most valuable sports team worldwide). They don’t need headlines, ticket sales or attention.

    As for Tim Tebow, Why would you cut an inexpensive backup quarterback who brings real gameday value rather than just holding a clipboard. How about letting the guy fail before labeling him a failure. Of which he hasn’t been so far in the NFL. People hate on the guy way too hard.

  15. mogogo1 says: Aug 31, 2012 6:20 PM

    So, after all the hand-wringing over how his mere presence was going to be a distraction, the Browns are keeping Colt McCoy?

    It’s the right move from a football perspective, but what a bunch of “can’t make up our minds, let’s changes horses again in midstream” bunch of goofballs they have running the show.

    Jack maybe the other 4 hadnt posted their cuts yet! Did you ever consider the obvious since they have till 9PM?

  20. fourthandafoot says: Aug 31, 2012 9:36 PM

    Streeter does seem like a stash move on the surface.

    On to Tebow, even if he doesn’t throw another pass for the rest of his career, there’s an obvious role for him on any of the 32 rosters. So why ask for his release. Haters just want to hate i guess.

    Jets are ONLY worth something because of their location. The franchise itself is pathetic.

    I do agree with you about TT. He is the most scrutinized current player in NFL, that has managed to win a few games along the way.

    Tebow was just 1 of many Florida qbs that won games! He hasnt won anything in the NFL, he played a majority of backup qbs in the games he won! His kicker and defense won the games. He will never be a QB in the NFL and its a joke to think he ever will be!
