QB G.J. Kinne out of Tulsa got released by the Jets, probably because he plays a lot like Tebow and he already have Tebow. This kid will get picked up by another NFL team and I hope will make it, he's been through a lot one of those guys that have a sad story but good ending. I hope someone picks him up ASAP. Although he did say "I defiantly didn't get a fair shot" (with the Jets.) Sad but thats the NFL they couldn't use him wouldn't use him in the pre-season they had to do it, its all business.
Revis was rated #5 and the best defensive player in the NFL. This is bad for the Jets. Now that everyone thinks that Revis is the best then he wants to be paid like he is the best which means a contract dispute is coming. I doubt he holds out and misses a single regular season game, but it could cause bad drama and to a team who already some think is a circus this could lead to problems for management and Revis. Since he is rated #5 he will act like the best and I think he is the best and deserves a new contract. Going into this season he is the best CB in the league and will be for seasons to come. But the Jets can't think otherwise or their star player could be holding out on the bench.
Because we are kids, and it is summertime, we go to camp. And because of that we will not be able to write articles from now until mid august. One of our writers, Matt Lownes, fortunately doesn't go to sleep away camp and therefore he will be holding down the fort for the next month and a half. Orders in the shop can still be placed and will be shipped on schedule as usual. We promise to you that after the summer the site will be back up and running at full force. Thank you for your understanding and have a great summer.
A few months ago, Tim Tebow came to New York with a reputation for being media friendly. And because of that, he was selected the winner of the 2012 Good Guy Award by the Pro Football Writers of America.
The Good Guy Award is given to a football player for his professionalism in helping pro football writers do their jobs. The award was given for the first time by the Pro Football Writers of America in 2005. Many will say Tim won it because of the way he handled the media last season, and that is probably true. When he led the Broncos to an improbable playoff run he became one of the biggest names in sports.
When traded to the Jets in March, Tebow was a little to involved in the media and now he has seemed to step back, as requested by Teddi Bruschi. And as we all know, it isn't going to get any easier for him in New York. The introductory to the Jets drew more than 200 media types at the conference.
Weber in college
The Jets announced today they have signed wide receiver Raymond Webber. He was signed by the Buccaneers, but was placed on IR in September 2011. Webber attended Arkansas-Pine Bluff, and has good size. To make move for him the Jets waived linebacker Matthias Berning. He was on the practice squad last season. The Jets are still looking for a good blocking tight end, anyone thinking veteran Bo Scaife?
LT getting TD record
LT a former Jet and former Charger, will retire tomorrow at a 2pm press conference. Making his career as a Charger LT played two seasons with the Jets and they were pretty successful. For eight straight seasons LT had 1,000+ yards rushed for the Chargers, and then in 2009 he only had 700+ and caught the injury bug. In 2010 he was a Jet and rushed for 914 yards and had 6 touchdowns. In 2011 though he only rushed for 200+ yards and had one touchdown. As a Charger he did something no running back ever had he scored 28 touchdowns in one season back in 2006. LT was an underrated running back coming out of college and always will be the little guy that could. LT will no doubt be a first ballot hall of famer and I'm proud that he played for the Jets, although he will be going into the Hall as a Charger.
Calvin is a difference maker on the pass rush
We all know the Jets have a very talented defense coming into this season. If they want to be elite, they need good play from their outside linebacking group, specifically Calvin Pace and Bryan Thomas. Both guys used to be huge contributors to the defense, but age and injuries have brought their play down. What can they Jets expect out of them?
Let's start with Calvin Pace. After having a big year as a Arizona Cardinal in 2007, Calvin signed with the Jets. The Jets hoped he would be a special pass rusher for them. He has been good, in 56 games he has 24 sacks. But that is four seasons, and in four seasons the Jets have played 64 games, meaning he has missed 8 games in his four seasons here as a Jet. Last year I think was a good year for him, but at age 31 can he still be a difference maker. Many thought the Jets were going to cut him in the offseason, and then sign an outside linebacker. So far in training camp, the Jets have been using Calvin a lot at defensive end, because they are playing more of a 4-3. I think with the addition of Coples, and Maybin being better than ever, it gives Calvin a lot less pressure.
