After a brief contractual impasse, there is a new quarterback in New York.

The Jets officially acquired Tim Tebow late Wednesday night. The highly polarizing player sometimes draws criticism for his unorthodox style, and other times admiration for his off the field persona and unlikely victories in the clutch.

NFL’s Best and Brightest Show Up in Indianapolis

by John DeMarzo

Even for those who do not breathlessly follow every happening in Hollywood, the quartet of ceremonies --- Emmys, Grammys, Oscars, and Tonys --- always attracts casual fans, just to see what movies, songs, television programs and Broadway shows that they’ve seen or heard over the past year take home honors.  I must confess that I am one of these casual fans, except when it comes to the Grammys; being a lover of music, I usually know all of the songs or albums nominated for the prestigious award.

As a forward to this article, I would like to apologize for all its pessimism. I’m usually an optimistic fan. I don’t mean to sound so negative, but after 16 weeks of New York football, it’s time to sound off.

The First Jets-Giants Game

From the WFUV Sports Archives

The first Giants-Jets game. August 17, 1969...Yale Bowl, New Haven, CT.

The Jets were coming off a Super Bowl victory and needed to prove their victory over Baltimore wasn't a fluke. The two teams and the two leagues did not like each other...and that's putting it nicely.
