I have no idea what any of that means, but it’s just awesome to look at. With that in mind, let’s take a look at the weird, wild and wacky stuff from Week 8.
Tim TebowTim Tebow makes the start for the New York Jets … just not where you would expect.
Every time we talk about the preseason, it comes with a caveat: It’s only the preseason. It doesn’t really count. Teams aren’t using their best game plans, stars only play a few plays and the models of evaluation are different. For teams, the focus shifts from, “Can this player thrive in our scheme?” to “Can he win 1-on-1 battles?“ The best performances (hello, Julio Jones) and the worst (ouch, Kevin Kolb) should be taken with a pound of salt. This was all reinforced Friday night quite nicely during the New York Jets’ 17-6 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals. As the New York Post pointed out, Cincinnati coach Marvin Lewis called Jets coach Rex Ryan and asked him not to run […]
As soon as the Jets acquired Tim Tebow,the questions began about how he would fit in. There is some doubt, for instance, about whether a two-QB system could work. But they obviously want him for a reason. So… huh? Well, ESPN New York reported that the Jets are planning to use Tebow as a red-zone option, taking starter Mark Sanchez out at times inside the 20. Interesting idea. But not new. In fact, when Tebow was a freshman at Florida, he was the backup to nearly-as-heralded Chris Leak. Essentially, playing in the red zone was his role. Don’t believe me? Let’s ask a dude who knows. I spoke with ex-Florida coach Urban Meyer coming off the course during a practice round […]
In any event, NFL players made a big splash during the ESPY awards and here’s a look at the NFL winners.
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.
Well, this didn’t take long. You knew the Jets would wrap their arms around Tebowmania. And you knew they were entering another world when Tim Tebow’s introductory news conference was treated like a gala. But I feel like it really crystalized today. Media members who cover the Jets were allowed in the locker room today for the first time this offseason, and Tebow received most of the attention. Duh. And as you can see here, here, and here, it was an epic period of media access. Those Gang Green reporters are never boring. And Tebow contradicting a report about where he lived was fantastic. But the best and most absurd thing was that Tebow — ready for this?? — changed the […]
It’s almost a certainty that Tim Tebow is going to eventually be the starting quarterback for the Jets, right? I predicted Tebow becomes the Jets starter in Week 6 against the Colts. But not everybody is in agreement.
Thanks to Panini America, the group that brought us the Peyton Manning trading cards, we can now see what Tim Tebow will look like as a member of the Jets.
The Jets and Jaguars are now in discussions with Broncos about a potential trade for QB Tim Tebow, league sources said Wednesday.
The Jets’ trade for Tim Tebow might have hit a snag, with the Broncos asking for $5 million.
Let’s take a moment to ignore some of the obvious jokes of Tim Tebow going to the Jets and look at the positives from a fantasy perspective. The biggest positive being you won’t be tempted to take Tebow or Mark Sanchez in your fantasy draft this year. So we have that.
League sources said Wednesday that the Rams are strongly interested in acquiring one-time Broncos starting QB Tim Tebow.
After suggesting that any team that moves to acquire Broncos QB Tim Tebow would be doing so to chase ticket sales, former NFL LB Joey Porter made a pop-culture analogy that is sure to rile Tebow’s fans.
NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora gives a sampling of opinions from executives and agents that paints a picture of a market of roughly a half-dozen teams expected to have interest in acquiring Tim Tebow.
