    Don't they realize there are 31 other teams out there besides the bloody Jets? I'm getting so sick of hearing about Tebow and Sanchez and Rex. There are other teams out there ESPN!!

    Before you guys say 'well watch a different sports channel', well I tried that. NFL Network to be precise. They were just as BAD! All Jets. JFC, there's more than just Tebow and Sanchez to the NFL! Oh ok, occasionally they'll talk about Peyton... for all of 5 seconds.

    Seriously though, why all the love for the Jets? I don't get it. There are much more interesting stories out there. Sorry for the venting, I'm just getting tired of hearing about Tebow and the Jets, and it seems wherever I turn its Tebow, Sanchez, or Rex. I'd like to be able to watch a station that talks about other teams, especially the Pats of course. I'd even like to hear other teams TC's such as Giants, Steelers, Ravens, Bills, Chargers.. well pretty much all of them. Just so sick of only hearing about the Jets. Doesn't ESPN realize they are alienating the other 31 teams' fans?

    I guess I could listen to sports radio, but all they mostly talk about is baseball and I'm not really into baseball...

    Any suggestions on where I can get news on the other 31 teams in the league?

    The two teams that has the least amount of coverage on both ESPN and NFLN so far? Take a guess, its the two teams that went to the superbowl last year, the pats and the giants! I have not heard anything from those 2 teams from any program on those 2 channels yet!

    The Jets have already achieved what they wanted through the acquisition of Tim Tebow. As a side, does anyone else find him to be incredibly simple? His answers are always clichés with no real thought or insight.

    As for the broadcast, that's why I have the internet, Patsfans and Patriots.com ;)

    I don't blame Tebow for all the attention he's getting. He seems like a nice guy and all, its just the media that seems to be blowing him up to be larger than life. I actually kind of feel bad for the guy - to have to live up to this image of what the media thinks of him and as a result what his hardcore religious backers view him as. He has to be careful of what he says, and so clichés are the safest bet.

    Conspiracy theorist Joseph Kerr here...THIS all plays into my 2014 Jets/Giants in the Meadowlands theory...building up the hype now so that the Goodell Fixer Unit can pull off the biggest fraud in sports history...it is very important that the idea of Jet dominance and Jet press coverage go hand in hand, so that when the season of the Green Fix dawns, the entire country will be indoctrinated into buying the scam.

    Just look at the national press blurbs blanketing coast to coast sports outlets..

    "Sanchez in 4th year...this is when Eli took off!!"

    "Sanchez career path mirrors Eli!!"

    "Jets fill their final needs by drafting three superstars!!"

    "Jets put final coaching piece in place by nabbing Sparano!!"


    non stop...plus the deification of Tim Tebow...now everyone in the country ,whether they care to know or not, now have to endure every possible public moment of the "Chosen One"'s life....plus.."what will the Jets unleash on an unsuspecting NFL with Tebow?? STAY TUNED!!!!"...right...and who's the best coach in NFL history???...oh right...that's already been covered last week in Wrecksie's presser.

    The Big Fix...debuting September 2014 in arenas near you....

    Let the spotlight be on them. At the first sign of trouble you know the media will love to come down on them.

    This is about E!SPN mostly, although the NFL network is fast becoming this.*

    The "E" stands for "Entertainment." As in "entertainment tonight." Let's discuss the Kardashians, oh wait, it has to be somewhat sports related, make that Tebow.


    * For the NFL, just try to listen to the Rich Eisen podcast where hje interviews David Allen Greer about the up coming TV season and the Browns when he was growing up (You know, because we have to mention football, sorry, Mr. Greer.)

    Unfortunately, if you are at a gym or someplace with a common TV, their is no alternative "guy" TV station.

    The Jets give the media more sound bytes than any other team in the league. Further, they (are the red headed step child in) play in the biggest media market in the world. It shouldn't come as a shock that they get non-stop coverage. If it grates on you, then there is a simple solution to the matter: don't watch.

    So funny. Just when I clicked on this post while watching ESPN, caught the Hannah Storm interview with Rex.

    Do not worry about it. Wait until Hard Knocks begins and its the Miami Dolphins and Ochocinco 24-7.

    Did anyone think the second training camp started that all eyes weren't going to be towards Tebow and Sanchez? ESPN covered Tebow 24/7 last year. Why wouldn't they do even more now that they have the Tebow vs. Sanchez drama?

    They don't cover the Pats' camp because it is boring television.

    Exactly. Let them get all the hype...and pressure. I prefer it when the Pats can play the "no respect" card.

    ganggreen.com thinks the Jets are flying under the radar.

    Woody has PSL's and season tickets to sell. It's not arbitrary these guys keep running their mouthes.

    At this point in the season (early TC), I think most stations are focusing on how teams improved themselves (in theory) in the offseason. It's harder to sell that angle with the two most successful teams from the year before.

    Just for fun, i just clicked ESPN only to see "Sal" talking about their new package called "Throw to Cro"....he called it inside stuff as he lines up on the outside after moving Santonio to the slot.

    Big F'in deal - i am sure we'll be fooled.

    Better to see Dbacks playing WR than a real WR (jets really need wr's).

    Nothing, there are showing content that they believe gives them the most viewers. Who cares, when the cover the pats it is all about Gronk and Brady like they were the only two players on the team. Which pretty much is the focus of the day to day coverage of 32 teams, the more casual fans just want to hear about the stars on the opposing teams.

    Somebody in Denver does not care than Bolden is a surprise performer.

    Espn is about league news, not individual teams. Tebow is the biggest name in the NFL

    Manning should be a bigger name. Unlike Tebow, he's actually done something in the NFL. Don't even start me on other more worthy players who are half decent footballers.

    When Tebow airs I switch the channels. Not that big a deal.
