New York Jets, Mark Sanchez And Santonio Holmes Booed At Knicks Game

What do you think of the boos by the Knicks' fans?

Regardless of any NBA team, on any given night, no matter whom the opponent is, there’s always fans there supporting their home or away team. And even sometimes, one, two, three, or more of those fans are celebrities. Also, usually those celebrities that are cheering (usually the home team) are as a result cheered on by the home crowd fans.

However, at the New York Knicks game at Madison Square Garden on Tuesday night, where the Knicks took on the Los Angeles Clippers, New York Jets football players, quarterback, Mark Sanchez and wide receiver, Santonio Holmes weren’t cheered on…they were booed.

Matter of fact, booed loudly.

The New York Jets, whose season ended months ago after they went 8-8 last season and didn’t make the playoffs certainly wasn’t forgotten by the displeased Knicks’ fans.

Now while it wasn’t clear why the Knicks’ fans were booing, the answer to the question that has been out there since the addition of newly acquired quarterback Tim Tebow was certainly answered and that question; when will Sanchez first be booed?

Is it too soon?

As for Sanchez and Holmes they would decline to comment to ESPN about the fans boos at halftime. Though, Holmes would comment to twitter as he posted on his account:

Jets cornerback, Antonio Cromartie was also at Madison Garden Tuesday night. However, he wouldn’t bee booed, though he would be introduced as the wrong player.

The Knicks would go onto defeat the Clippers, 99-93, improving to 35-30 and move closer to locking up the 7th seed in the Eastern Conference.

Sanchez, threw for 3,474 yards, 26 touchdowns, and 18 interceptions last season and Holmes, who caught 51 passes for 651 yards and 8 touchdowns last season. As for Cromartie, known to Knicks’ announcer as “Shonne Greene” had 45 tackles, one forced fumble, and 4 interceptions last season.

Sources: Peyton Manning To Be Released

Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts will part ways.

After months of wondering what the answer to the question of, will Peyton Manning be an Indianapolis Colt in 2012-13 has been answered. Sources close to the team have said that owner Jim Irsay informed the 14 year Colt and four time M.V.P. that the team will release him.

Not even longer than one month after Irsay told the media that Manning can be a Colt if he wants, Irsay going completely against what he said has decided to release him.

“We can work out the contract if he wants to come back,” Irsay said. “We want him to make the call. He’s earned that. We want him to have the chance of finishing his career here if that’s what he wants to do.”

Sources have also said that Irsay who was traveling with Manning to South Florida on Irsay’s private jet will tell the news at their press conference tomorrow.

The decision to pass on Manning doesn’t come as to much of a surprise as people have been prepared for this to happen for quite sometime now.

As a result to Manning being released the billboard that manningtomiami.com sponsored becomes a likely possibility now as Peyton Manning will have the opportunity to go to any team that wants him.

Though the question that comes up now is who wants Manning? Also too, is Manning healthy enough to play and last a whole season? Well according to Manning, yes he is.

As to where Manning will land, the New York Jets have hinted that the Miami Dolphins aren’t the only team that Manning could go to as one player on the team told the New York Daily News that, they need Manning.

“I want him in New York,” a disclosed Jets player said. “He needs to be a Jet.”

As for Jets head coach Rex Ryan he defend that disclosed player as he felt the same.

“This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for me to coach,” Ryan told the Daily News. “I’m never going to have a regret. So whatever that means.”

“I think Mark does have a bright future,” Ryan said. “He’s our quarterback. And those are facts. I don’t care who the player is. If Tom Brady gets released, we’re going to look at Tom Brady…We’re going to look at every single guy out there.”

So will it be the Dolphins? Jets? Or someone else? Where ever Manning will stop, not even he knows.

Revis Isn’t A Fan Of Tebow Time: He’s Actually A Critic

Revis the newest of the Tim Tebow critics.

Since coming into the NFL 2010 Tim Tebow has been repeatedly criticized by everyone; analysts, reporters, coaches, you name it. However he’s always answered them in a positive way avoiding any sort of controversy. Though since being named the starter week 7, Tebow has answered them in a new way; winning.

Since becoming the starting quarterback in week 7 for the Denver Broncos they have only lost one game which came to them in week 8 from the Detroit Lions, who won 45-10.

Though despite all the wins and great plays that has happened since making the switch to Tebow, he’s still getting criticized. Except this time, it’s a player. New York Jets corner back Darrelle Revis told the press that this offense won’t work for the rest of the season, “No, not for a whole season, because we know what they’re doing, and we feel comfortable in our game plan,” Revis said. “Yeah, if you have Michael Vick and, I don’t know, Chris Johnson at running back. Yeah, it can work. Those are probably the two fastest guys that can probably get out on the edge on you.”

Now if you look at the stats of both Vick and Johnson and compare them to Denver’s offense or to Tebow and running back Willis McGahee then Revis’ comments don’t make sense. On the season right now McGahee has 127 attempts for 640 yards and three touchdowns compared to Johnson who has 148 attempts for only 496 yards and two touchdowns.

Now when you compare Vick and Tebow, obviously Vick has the better numbers of the two as Tebow has only really played in four and half games. However, if you compare the two from Tebow’s first start on, Tebow wins. In Vick’s last four games he has rushed for 217 yards and zero touchdowns where as Tebow has rushed for 283 yards and one touchdown. Also in that stretch Tebow has been the better starter winning three games compared to Vick who only won two.

Despite being wrong about his comparison Revis wouldn’t stop there as he would go onto say, “We can’t fall asleep back there in the secondary,” Revis said. “It can get boring, especially when a team just keeps running the ball, series after series, play after play.”

Now you can call it what you want, boring or not. But this Denver offense has opposing defenses right they want them and on this Thursday night against the New York Jets ranked 15th against the run will experience something that they haven’t experienced all season long; Tim Tebow.
