It’s only May, and right now there are still 104 days until the first NFL regular season game of 2012-13. So let’s talk some NFL. Organized Team Activities, or OTAs, have been going on around the country for a few days now. We’re getting to see Peyton Manning in Broncos gear, Tim Tebow in Jets gear, and what’s left of the Saints back in action.
There’s really nothing to report, Sports Illustrated’s doom and gloom aside. It’s only May, so what’s the point of trying to break down who’s going to start where, or if your favorite team will win that crucial week 5 matchup? (They won’t.)
What we can do is take a look at some shots from the OTAs and keep hoping September gets here faster.

Today is the first day that the media is allowed to watch the New York Jets practice. Not that there’s any big news, like maybe a brewing quarterback controversy between Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow or anything. Even if there isn’t, nothing like a little media jumping the gun to get things really hopping, right? Check out this tweet Sports Illustrated and their @SINow account sent out.
You gotta love that. See ‘Tebowing’ in Madden »
With the way things are looking it is getting hard to tell if the HBO docu-reality series that spotlights one NFL team as it prepares for the coming season will have anyone on it again.
Recently it was reported that the New York Jets, the clear-cut favorites to do the show with the whole Tim Tebow/Mark Sanchez drama, were out of the running. Surprisingly, head coach Rex Ryan did not want the attention (again) that comes with being on the popular show.

New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez and WR Santonio Holmes were sitting together in the front row at last night’s Knicks game vs. the Clippers. That’s good news, because Holmes was talking a lot of smack about Sanchez after the season, so they are apparently over it now.
The bad news is when the duo was shown on the Madison Square Garden video board, they were welcomed with an arena full of booing. Read more… »
There are a number of professional football players that failed to learn one very important lesson back in grade school. If you are going to have sex and prefer not to have a baby than you need to practice some form of protection.
New York Jets defensive back Antonio Cromartie is not the only one, but the man definitely does not know anything about protection. At the tender young age of 27—a time when many people are having their first child—he has 10 by eight different women.
Yes, you read that right; 10 children, eight baby mommas.

This is how you know the NFL is king of American professional sports; when the schedule for the upcoming season being released is turned into a three-hour ESPN special. Each team’s opponents had already been released, but tonight at 7pm Eastern, we’ll find out which weeks and what times they’ll all meet.
I love the NFL as much as anyone, but this seems a tad over the top. Then again, it’s not really that surprising because it really does matter when teams will be matching up. More importantly, for Jets fans, it’s time to start guessing when the real quarterback controversy will start.
Guess what? There’s not going to be one, at least not early on. Yes, the Jets say they will employ a two QB attack which has already spawned the name ‘Sanchebow.’ Read more… »
Looks like Tim Tebow is finding out where he stands in New York. Tebow, who was traded to the New York Jets last month, was at the Yankees game vs. the Los Angeles Angels on Sunday night. When he was featured on the giant video board, he smiled to the camera then heard a lot of booing.
It was kind of harsh, especially since Tim was even wearing a Yankees hat but that didn’t help. Seated right behind Tebow was Miami Heat star Dwyane Wade, who also was booed, but once he showed his Yankees hat, the boos turned to cheers.
Welcome to New York, Tim.
