After a mess of a season, the Jets look to move forward with the right signal caller. Who do you think is the better option this season?
Practice makes perfect, and if you take a look at the Jets’ performance last season, they need a lot of practice. But don't fear Jets fans, Gang Green is already on the practice field at the Atlantic Health Jets Training Center in Florham Park. Hundreds of fans attended the team's mini-camp Tuesday and got a good look at the Jets' current quarterback competition. While projected starter Mark Sanchez was throwing a pass, a Jets fan could be heard saying, “he looks good out there, he is in control,” while another muttered, “False leadership.” Draft pick Geno Smith and Sanchez took turns running the offense, but pay no mind to the order in which the names are written. Geno looked good and was putting the ball on the money but Sanchez was much…

NY Jets coach 'did not deny causing the accident' after allegedly going through red light.
New York Jets head football coach Rex Ryan told authorities he was trying “to beat the light” when he apparently caused a minor three-car crash during the evening rush hour last week in Bethlehem, Pa., police said. The accident occurred at the intersection of Wyandotte and W. Third streets, just south of the Hill-to-Hill Bridge on Jan. 14 at 6:13 p.m. One eyewitness and the driver of one of the other two cars in the crash told police they saw a 2013 red Ford Mustang, which Ryan was driving, go through a red light as it traveled west along W. Third Street, police said. Though police said the investigation remains ongoing, the partially redacted accident report Bethlehem officials released Tuesday said Ryan, a Summit resident, received a …

Area real estate agents say gated communities are scarce if that's his wish.
Is Tim Tebow trying to take Mark Sanchez's job and invade his neighborhood? That's what some were saying when a report surfaced over the weekend that the newest New York Jet was looking at a home in the upscale Trump National Golf Club community in Bedminister. It also happens to contain the residence of the team's current starting quarterback. It's not hard to see why some were doing a double-take. After all, the most highly-publicized backup quarterback ever has not only been getting all of the media attention, but that comes right after Sanchez signed a three-year contract extension. Many fans believe he's here to take Sanchez's job. But now his house? Then again, Tebow's options may be limited, according to area real estate agents. "…

Monday, March 26, 2012
Tebow Mania hit New Jersey on Monday, but it was the media and not the fans who bombarded the New York Jets’ Morris County training facility as the most-publicized backup QB acquisition ever was officially unveiled. Tim Tebow spoke to reporters for the first time since the trade, saying he expects a "great working relationship" with current quarterback Mark Sanchez, according to ESPN.com Tebow’s introductory conference caused a larger crowd than any free agent, trade, or Rex Ryan comment fallout Gang Green has ever seen since moving to the Atlantic Health Jets Training Facility in Florham Park. The proof: it was the first time the team ever had to herd the press into the field house to accommodate a greater presence. More than 200 media …

Florham Park Police and training facility security were on the scene ready for Tebow Mania.
Football fans gathered outside of Florham Park's Atlantic Health Jets Training Facility on Thursday to welcome the newest member of Gang Green. Tim Tebow and the sure-to-follow Tebow Mania arrived at the Morristown Municipal Airport shortly after 3 p.m. Thursday, and he was expected to join with Jets' personnel shortly after at the team's training facility. Tebow was traded to the New York Jets on Wednesday from the Denver Broncos after the team signed Peyton Manning as a free agent. Manning and the Indianapolis Colts had ended their 14-year relationship earlier in the offseason. The man responsible for the trade was Jets General Manager Mike Tannenbaum, who is a Basking Ridge resident. Fairleigh Dickinson University students Karlee …

Morristown Medical Center's favorite football team has been mentioned in light of living legend's release from the Colts.
While around these parts, one Manning has gained a lot more attention (especially this year), there is another Manning who, once upon a time, dominated the conversation. Peyton Manning will dominate the convo once again now that he has been released by the Indianapolis Colts after 14 seasons, and after spending the entirety of 2011 on Injured Reserve because of neck surgeries. And, though Eli Manning has become the darling of the New York/New Jersey region, here in Morristown (specifically, Morristown Medical Center and its parent, Atlantic Health), it has been the Jets that have been given the most love, since the hospital system is the official health care provider for the football team. That's why we are asking today whether you think …

New York is holding its training camp at its home facility for the first time since moving to Morris County.
As NFL football starts up again–thankfully for fans–training camps have begun opening, as the lockout was lifted last week. Hundreds from around the area flocked to Florham Park's Atlantic Health Training Center, home of the New York Jets. The team held its initial public practice on Tuesday during its first training camp at the Morris County facility. The Jets decided to hold camp at its year-round home away from the New Meadowlands Stadium instead of its previously scheduled site SUNY Cortland in Cortland, N.Y., due to the length of the lockout. The practice was part of a public event, which featured games, merchandise booths, and, of course, the players running drills. Former New York Giant Plaxico Burress was on the field on Tuesday …
