Who will be the best AFC East QB in Week 1?
First up on Revis Island 2012 edition is Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stevie Johnson, Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
In two games last season, Johnson averaged 79.5 yards against the New York Jets’ four-time Pro Bowl cornerback. But against Darrelle Revis, 80 yards sometimes feels like 200.
What is the best storyline for the 2012 NFL season?
The New York Jets have looked like a disheveled mess in the preseason with question marks on the offensive line and a media-fueled quasi-quarterback controversy leading some to consider the temperature setting on Rex Ryan’s office recliner.
“This isn’t all on Rex,” NFL Network and NFL.com’s Steve Wyche said Tuesday morning on “NFL AM” when asked of the head coach’s precarious predicament. “This is on (general manager) Mike Tannenbaum, who put that personnel in place, who signed some guys to some contracts that have become prohibitive. They don’t seem like they have a lot of depth in a lot of areas; the talent really isn’t there.”
The “NFL AM” crew debates Tim Tebow‘s roll in the Jets’ Wildcat offense.
Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Jerome Bettis got the morning off on the right foot when he jokingly took a shot at New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.
It almost goes without saying at this point: If you’re a football personality who goes on a national sports show, you’ll be asked about New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow.
Rex Ryan told “NFL AM” he is “excited” about Tim Tebow and reiterates that he is the best defensive coach in the NFL.
Professional athletes often make things seem so easy, they often carry the warning, “Don’t try this at home.” Perhaps the warning should extend to reporters who attempt the art of “Tebowing” with a tablet in their hand, as Shira Lazar found out on the red carpet of the Samsung Hope for Children Gala.

In the newspaper world, the football coverage for Sunday’s paper is in the form of a notes package. In the internet world, we can do notes, too. I’ve been trying to come up with some kinda feature for Sunday on the blog, and I may tweak this going forward.
With the 16th pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, the Jets selected North Carolina DE Quinton Coples, and the reaction was mixed from some 3,500 Jets fans on hand at MetLife Stadium. While some cheered, others booed, with hopes of Melvin Ingram heading to New York shattered. It’s been chaos and excitement surrounding the draft, for all but one, who says his focus is elsewhere.
There’s a rumor floating around that the New York Jets could trade up to a spot where the team could select Alabama running back Trent Richardson. This would be an incredibly bold, and costly (as far as draft picks are concerned), move for Gang Green
