New York Jets release Tim Tebow: ESPN coverage will torture us all

Tim_Tebow_Jesus

ESPN’s home team, the New York Jets, has released ESPN’s all-time favorite player Tim Tebow.

I haven’t turned on the boys (and girls) in Bristol, and quite frankly I’m afraid to. I won’t dare flip on the World Wide Leader right now because they will undoubtedly treat this story as if it were bigger than all four U.S. Presidential assassinations (JFK, Lincoln, McKinley, Garfield) combined.

The New York Jets parting ways with Tim Tebow? That’s gotta be priority number one for the WWL.  I’m sure Darren Rovell has already sent out a dozen tweets about what brand of shoes Tim Tebow wears.

This will no doubt interrupt the network’s WALL TO WALL Miami Heat coverage.

Jets reporters, NO ONE cares about Tim Tebow practice interceptions

jesus-tebow-shirt

Performances in NFL OTAs matter about as much NHL games in September, garbage time minutes in October NBA games, spring college football and split squad spring training scrimmages in MLB. So why is it headline news that Tim Tebow that threw two picks at New York Jets organized team activities? WHO CARES?

Why is it breaking news that he doesn’t know the offense yet? He just got there. I know Tebow is and is going to be the most highly covered backup QB in NFL history, but there’s still a limit. Enough is enough. Do we need another day when ESPN devoted an entire SportsCenter to him and mentioned his name once every 15 seconds or whatever it was?

New York Jets vs. San Diego Chargers: Brutally Honest Game Preview

michelle ryan rex ryan

Man do I hate the New York Jets. I truly hate them so much that in past articles I’ve said the Jets are more evil than Al Qaeda. And this was before they shocked my beloved New England Patriots in the most kick-to-the-groiniest AFC Divisional playoff game in NFL history. I still have visions of that asinine drive-to-nowhere that consumed about 10 minutes in the late third quarter as the Pats were down two scores.

Brady, Belichick WTF on that one?

But as much as I hate the Jets, they are good for business. They make headlines, (Rex Ryan foot fetish, Jenn Sterger receiving dong pics, Ines Sainz sexual harassment, Braylon Edwards DUI, Bart Scott shooting his mouth off, Ryan constantly shooting his mouth off) and in 2010 they turned into the NFL’s version of an out of control frat house.

Or the NFL’s answer to Jersey Shore (Sanchez is the situation, Ryan is J Woww, see the whole analogy here). But I need the Jets and Ryan for good copy, and the beat goes on this fall.

Plaxico Burress Moves to Other NY Team; Jets Clearly NFL’s most INSANE Squad

As you no doubt have heard, wide receiver Plaxico Burress is staying in New York. He’s moved from the first team to the second. From the proud franchise to the ginger-featured stepchild. For the Jets, this means that WR Braylon Edwards is now certainly gone. (If he wasn’t already). That means the Jets are replacing one troubled wideout who did his college football in Michigan (Edwards played for the Wolverines) with another troubled receiver who also played Big Ten football in the state. (Plax played for the Michigan State Spartans).

As usual when you move from UM to MSU, you tend to get more thuggish ruggish. Edwards was fined for a DUI. Burress went to jail for illegal weapons possession.

Glaring Examples of Belichick Being Horribly Out-coached Sunday

belichick

The New York Jets probably have better talent than the New England Patriots, but during the NFL regular season it certainly didn’t seem that way. The Jets upset the Pats Sunday because they out-coached Bill Belichick and his staff. Period. As much of a genius as I usually regard the hooide to be; he looked like kind of a moron Sunday night.

Jets LB Bart Scott Needs to Switch to Decaf or Something (Video)

jets

Yes, you and your New York Jets teammates just upset a highly favored New England Patriots team. And that is quite impressive for an out of control frat house. Your team of classless, shameless self-aggrandizing troglodytes is moving on. But seriously chill out!

I don’t know if this roid rage or whatever the hell is it is, but please tone it down a notch Bart Scott. You still haven’t won anything yet. And as Atlanta learned the very night before, being a one seed means a helluva lot less than it used to in today’s NFL. You already beat the Patriots this year.

And this has been a season in which nothing is predictable and makes any sense. So maybe a unit of absurd, arrogant jackasses, led by the biggest arrogant jackass of all should win?

Rex Ryan Foot Fetish? New York Jets Providing Media Fodder Again

jets

As you no doubt already know the New York Jets recently suspended strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi indefinitely after he blatantly tripped a Dolphins player during a punt return. The NFL isn’t even through investigating that situation when lightning of negative PR struck the Jets again.

Or maybe it’s not extremely negative PR…depending on uhm, whatever “floats your boat.”

According to ESPN.com, the Jets Head Coach has a severe foot fetish.

In a conference call with Chicago reporters leading up to Sunday’s big game with the Bears, Ryan didn’t deny a Deadspin.com report that shows a number of videos of a woman who looks very much like his wife showing off her feet while a cameraman — who sounds like Ryan — talks to the woman.

Either way, it’s yet another off-the-field distraction for the 2010 New York Jets who are about as unlovable as Al Qaeda, the Taliban and Mujahideen combined. Here are the top reasons why, and none involve foot fetishes.
