Behind The Scoreboard
Quarterback controversy for N.Y. Jets
If one can believe that a high profile quarterback of the NFL could garner two days’ worth of social media attention for something that was not related to his profession then one might feasibly believe that the Titans are going to mount a comeback.
Mr. Tebow was probably self-ordained to take Mark Sanchez’s seat as primary signal caller for the New York Jets but in a surprising move on Tuesday, head coach Rex Ryan looked a slot farther and chose Greg McElroy, a third stringer, to the lead the Jets into the next battle (against San Diego this past weekend).
Tebow started the chatter tatter scramble with the announced break-up with actress Camilla Belle. Of, course the two didn’t have that long of an association. The Jets’ signal callers seem to have problems with their chosen ones. Midway the current season, Sanchez and popular actress Eva Longoria split. One TV tabloid hinted that Miss Eva stated that Sanchez was always in a foul mood. Could it be that for 60 minutes every Sunday there are almost a dozen guys, big guys, trying to ring your bell at every turn contributing to that?
Don’t rush to judgement, dear readers, this reporter is not trying to bring the private lives of these players into these playoffs. But there does seem to be some underlining currents here. Did Coach Ryan perceive a similar scenario developing with his back-up? And did his team need any more problems after the Titans’ game?
Since this is the second jock beau Miss Eva has lost in as many outings, it might be that she needs a change of playing fields. Just a suggestion.
Week 16 power rankings list the Broncos as number one, edging the 49ers by three points after their defeat (34-17) of Baltimore. The acquisition of Peyton Manning appears to have paid off. The 49ers, however, can clinch the NFC West with a win over Seattle.
Persons of interest are still talking about the game between Dallas and Pittsburgh. Cassie Falkner stated this “was our Super Bowl. Anytime the Cowboys can beat the Steelers during this part of the season, it is cause célèbre.” Cassie’s friends who traveled to Dallas for the game kept her apprised through various social media.
It should be noted that going into week 16 (this column was written early due to early holiday deadlines) the NFC East is without a clearly defined leader. And America’s team was set to face New Orleans on Sunday (December 23).
