Michael Vick says there’s a time and a place for the wildcat. Donovan McNabb knows when and where. Never. And in a landfill.
The wildcat was long on hype yet short on yardage last season. But Ryan said his team could use more — yes, more — of it in 2013.
The read-option is not the Wildcat. Nor should it be used as a substitute package. Do that, and coach Rex Ryan will simply be repeating the Tebow mistake.
Some of the Jersey Shore’s amusement piers and parks are springing back to life nearly five months after Superstorm Sandy.
“It was a mess,” Westhoff said in a radio interview Friday. “It was an absolute mess. You can say however else you want, it was really a mess. I was very, very disappointed.”
Tebow said “it just happened” that he didn’t play in the package usually reserved for him, but multiple reports said he actually asked out of running the wildcat earlier in the week.
When asked about his playing time in a recent interview, the typically guarded Tim Tebow offered a surprising critique of the loud-and-proud culture under coach Rex Ryan.
While the Jets are standing by Mark Sanchez right now, perhaps their biggest potential playmaker – Tim Tebow – is mostly just standing by.
Mission already accomplished for the Wildcat. With all the focus on what Tim Tebow’s role is going to be, his part in the Jets’ offense is flying under the radar.
Yeah, we know the Jets still haven’t found the end zone. Then there’s the other elephant in the room. It has been shrouded in secrecy for months, a topic too taboo for any players to discuss at length – or in some cases, at all.
Three preseason games. Seven field goals. No touchdowns. Jets fans haven’t seen much to be excited about so far — particularly from the offense.
NFL fans know the football anthem “I’ve Been Waiting All Day for Sunday Night.” But the more appropriate title for a song leading into Sunday night’s Jets-Panthers game would be: “I’ve Been Waiting All Preseason for a Jets Touchdown.”
As far as this theory that a starting quarterback’s rhythm can be disrupted by the Wildcat, Pennington says that’s nonsense.
The Jets better figure out their pass protection before they’re stuck with a gimmick-based offense, led by a gimmick quarterback.
Shhh! The Jets worked on the wildcat. Yes, Tim Tebow was involved, of course. And the elusive backup quarterback felt pretty good doing it.
