  • Trading for Tim Tebow was a mistake, former Jets GM now says

    Hindsight is a wonderful thing. Former Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum, the man who traded for Tim Tebow, is now looking back on his career in New York. He's expressing some regrets, and guess who's right at the top? "Obviously we made a couple mistakes," Tannenbaum told CBS Sports Radio, "trading for Tim Tebow most notably." The Jets dealt a fourth- and sixth-round pick to Denver to get Tebow in March 2012, and then proceeded to use him in no discernibly logical fashion whatsoever.

  • New York Jets: The Tim Tebow Experiment Is Officially Dead (His role in the team is shrinking)

    Tim Tebow only played three snaps on offense against the Rams yesterday. Coincidentally or not, the Jets won 27-13 and Mark Sanchez had his best game since Week 1. At this point it's crystal clear that the Tebow takeover that everyone assumed would happen when the Jets traded for him just isn't going to happen. If there was ever a time to turn to Tebow, it was this week. The Jets were desperate — 3-6 after two-straight 20-point losses. And Mark Sanchez was in a certifiable tailspin, sitting in the bottom five in the league in passer rating and completion...
  • NY Jet teammates rip backup Tim Tebow, believe 'terrible' quarterback hasn't improved

    Tebowmania may have captivated the NFL last season, but Tim Tebow’s new team doesn’t believe that he’s a savior. More than a dozen Jets players and members of the organization painted a sobering picture of the player who rallied the Broncos to the playoffs last season. In their eyes, he’s simply not very good. The prevailing thought in the organization is that Tebow is nothing more than a gimmick. “He’s terrible,” a defensive starter told the Daily News. Although Tebow told The News last month that he has made improvements as a quarterback over the past few months, none of...

    President Obama said Thursday that the New York Jets quarterback situation would make him "pretty nervous" if he were a fan of the team. The Jets acquired Denver phenom Tim Tebow in the off-season, but are playing him as a backup to Mark Sanchez. "I've got to tell you, I don't like the idea of a quarterback controversy at the start of the season," Obama said on Columbus' 97.1 The Fan in a Thursday call-in appearance on The Common Man & The Torg's radio program. (Also on POLITICO: NY Jets brush off Obama critique) "If I was a Jets fan,...

    It was all set up so perfectly. The NFL schedule gods gift-wrapped a home game featuring a rookie quarterback--- who by the way had only started 16 college games--- to feast upon for the much-anticipated season opener in front of the Texans faithful. After all, this is supposed to be the season where the franchise had finally turned the corner; a season that on paper, is considered to be the best team ever fielded by the Texans organization, after a solid draft and a myriad of off-season moves. There is no way a team slated to challenge for supremacy in...

    "In the first place God made idiots," observed Mark Twain. "This was for practice. Then he made school boards." The San Francisco Board of Education's 4-2 vote last week to abolish the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program, which has been active in the city's high schools for 90 years, tends to support his view. Why is JROTC being done away with? It isn't for lack of interest. More than 1,600 San Francisco students currently take part in its voluntary activities. "Kids love this program as if it's family," notes the San Francisco Chronicle. It is "a program that students...

    USC quarterback Mark Sanchez was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting a woman. L.A.P.D. Officer Jason Lee says Sanchez was taken into custody around 4 p.m. Wednesday. He's accused of sexually assaulting a female student. Sanchez is listed on the Trojans' depth chart as the backup to John David Booty, but is expected to battle for the starting job this fall. Booty practiced only once this spring before he injured his back and had to undergo surgery. Sanchez played the recent spring scrimmage and has been practicing with the first unit. He will be a redshirt freshman this coming season.
