Rex Ryan ‘excited’ about New York Jets, 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.

Greatness? New York Jets talking about greatness?

“NFL AM”’s Steve Wyche and Mark Kriegel dissect D’Brickashaw Ferguson‘s “greatness” description of the Jets.

My story: College coaches pinpoint the next trend to permeate the NFL’s game

First, there was the Wildcat. Then, spread offenses. The college game has long proven a feeder ground for concepts that break into the NFL. But what’s next? For that question, I asked several who work in or work closely to the college game — Ohio State coach Urban Meyer, South Florida’s Skip Holtz, and analyst Doug Flutie. Their answers were all the same. As Meyer expertly put it, “Utilizing the quarterbacks as something more than just hand the ball off and throw it.” Yup, the mobile QB era in the NFL is alive and well, and it’s only going to grow. Robert Griffin III (right) is this year’s addition. Cam Newton and Tim Tebow have also shown what worked in […]

New York Jets’ Tim Tebow rising in fantasy football?

New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow is expected to be used in red-zone situations, but does the news make him fantasy worthy?

Live from Tahoe: Ex-MLB bad boy David Wells wishes he had been more like Tim Tebow

I always assumed ex-Yankees (and others) pitcher David Wells would be difficult. Shoot, I remember him rumbling with countless tabloid reporters when I was growing up in New York. So, it’s always a crapshoot when you approach a guy like that for an interview at a celebrity event. But Wells was more than gracious in South Lake Tahoe yesterday, sitting down on a random rock to chat with me… though he did reprimand this fan who interrupted us to ask for an autograph. Classic. Anyway, Wells was a NYC mainstay, one guy who really got how the city worked. He didn’t always play along, but he did understand the bright lights. Who better to ask than Wells about what new Jets […]

Three and out: Maclin itching for action

Eagles receiver Jeremy Maclin is itching for the season to start, but a return to health isn’t the only reason he’s primed to breakout.

Bears LB Lance Briggs reflects on being a personal favorite of QB Tim Tebow…

Just got off the phone with Chicago Bears LB Lance Briggs, and I’m still laughing. The conversation was fun, with Briggs offering me some fashion advice right out of the gate. Considering he’s the NFL/New Era cap ambassador helping launch the new on-field product, he has some sway. We’ll get to all that in a day or so. But today, I’m pumped about getting to ask the seven-time Pro Bowl player about my favorite Sound FX moment of the year. Yeah, you know the one. It’s captured right here on this link. At the 1:25 mark, Broncos QB Tim Tebow inexplicably exclaims, “What up, Lance Briggs??” Then he tells Briggs he’s been waiting to play against him his whole life. […]

Am I the only one who thinks it’s OK for Tim Tebow to be… a person?

Tim Tebow’s handlers should stop managing his image so carefully and let him appear in public like an actual human every so often — for his sake and ours.

Three and out: Jones-Drew could hold out

Maurice Jones-Drew and the Jaguars are at odds over extending his contract. Could he suffer the same fate as another elite fantasy running back?

Siri is now ready for your sports questions

Good news for those of you who use Siri, the Apple application will be answering sports questions, which is good apparently. Because if you only watch commercials, the app seems to only be designed to break golf tee times for Sam Jackson, tell John Malkovich some corny jokes and help Zooey Deschanel seems more adorable and quirky (which seems impossible).

Jaguaring set to take the nation by storm

Tebowing was all the rage in the fall of 2011 (and even beyond). So, of course, there are going to be copycats. They say the NFL is a copycat league, afterall. Take a good look at the latest incarnation: Jaguaring.

Three and out: Shonn Greene will get more carries

Happy Friday everybody! I know it was only a four-day week, but somehow it made me more ready for the weekend. That said, let’s hit the ground running here. In the Greene: Sometimes I just can’t help myself with some guys and I draft them when I probably shouldn’t. That said, I’m excited about Shonn Greene this year for the Jets. Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano told reporters Greene was going to surpass 253 attempt this season. Which was already a lot. When you think about how Reggie Bush rebounded with Sparano in Miami, I’m excited about Greene this year. And with quarterbacks like Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, you can understand why the Jets will run the ball a lot […]

Nine really random things and whatever else is going on around the NFL…

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.

Tom Brady’s new hair: Modeled after Tintin?

The annual Met Gala, benefiting the New York Metropolitan Museum of Art, was held Monday night and drew two of the NFL’s biggest luminaries — Tom Brady and Tim Tebow. Now, I don’t want to say Brady is getting a little jealous of the attention Tebow has commanded over the last year, but then you have Tom’s hairstyle.

Fan reaction mixed over Jets’ first-round pick

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.
