The Jets announced the firing of offensive coordinator Tony Sparano during Tuesday’s much-anticipated press conference.
Cavanaugh’s contract was due to expire in a few weeks and he was told Monday he would not be part of Rex Ryan’s staff next season.
Matt Cavanaugh has worked with lots of quarterbacks over the years. None have been anything like Tim Tebow.
Some believe the Jets will have a short hook on Sanchez this season with Tebow behind him on the depth chart. But the backup insists he’s not rooting for a role swap.
It doesn’t feel like the Jets just got a football player; it feels like they got Elvis, and he ain’t leaving the building without Mark Sanchez’s job.
You kind of get the idea that the locker room is collectively saying, “Yeah, sure, Mark’s our starter. But this Tebow guy, he’s something else!”
As his 46.5 completion percentage and 72.9 rating from 2011 might indicate, Tebow could certainly use some work under center.
With high-profile backup Tim Tebow right behind him on the depth chart, the pressure is on Mark Sanchez more than ever.
There’s no question Tony Sparano faces a daunting task. But if he sets his compass correctly and follows his course, whatever it may be, he could very well sail off from Florham Park, N.J., to any destination he chooses.
The New York Jets have hired Karl Dunbar as their defensive line coach after he served in the same position for the Minnesota Vikings the last six seasons.
The Jets just weren’t good enough to be a playoff team in 2011-12. Sunday’s 19-17 loss to the Dolphins was a fitting end to a season full of unfulfilled promises, inconsistent play, and turmoil.
The Jets won’t have much time to dwell on their loss to the Patriots. They have a short turnaround with a game at Denver against the unpredictable Tim Tebow on Thursday night, and some players thought that might be exactly what they need.
New York Jets coach Rex Ryan met with Mark Sanchez on Thursday — a rare one-on-one sit-down — to discuss football and other things with the slumping quarterback.
The New York Jets quarterback is using his legs a lot more this season to keep plays alive, giving his receivers more of a chance to get open and make big catches.
