Woody Johnson expected more reporters and TV cameras around his Jets than usual with Tim Tebow in town. The Jets owner wasn’t counting on this much attention.
“We’re in a media business,” said Johnson. “We want to give our fans an insight.” Are you kidding me? The Jets are in a media business? This is one of the dumbest things that an owner can say.
The fact that Joe McKnight sparked a 20-player brawl Monday should be taken as a hopeful sign. If nothing else, the offense is getting feisty. And heaven knows, it could use a little salt in its diet these days.
It seems there’s never a dull moment in Cortland. At least when the Jets are in town.
Jets coach Rex Ryan said Holmes is “obviously tender” and said the wide receiver told him “something about cartilage,” but wasn’t clear on the exact nature of the rib injury.
Cortland, New York has suddenly become Tebow Town, USA.
This is shaping up to be quite a weekend for Gang Green. The highlight of Friday’s practice was when Mark Sanchez threw a “game-winning” touchdown to Patrick Turner, after the defense dominated almost all of the workout.
Big Blue fans still don’t have anything definitive on the injury to Terrell Thomas’ surgically repaired right knee. Apparently neither do the Giants.
After last season’s locker room turmoil and disappointing 8-8 finish, Rex Ryan he’d be more “hands-on.” Mission accomplished — so far. Make it two budding controversies extinguished by the coach.
President Barack Obama may not be anywhere near Jets training camp at SUNY Cortland, but that doesn’t mean he’s out of the Tebow-mania loop.
The Jets are trying to fit Tebow, a square peg, into a round hole. We all know what he is — and it’s not a pocket passer.
Cromartie is widely regarded as the Jets’ second-best cornerback behind Darrelle Revis. And he thinks he’s good enough for a No. 2 ranking on the other side of the ball, too.
Mark Sanchez wants to be like Eli Manning. And so far, the Jets quarterback is right on track. He’ll need one terrific finish to his fourth NFL season to keep pace, though.
The headlines this weekend weren’t all for Tebow’s performance on the field. Some — many, actually — were for his bare-chested jog off it.
Revis was back on the practice field Monday for the team portion of practice, as promised.
