This week's Friday edition of our NFL Google+ hangout -- "NFL Slam with Mark and Sam," starring Times NFL columnist Sam Farmer and Mark Thompson of "Mark and Brian" radio fame -- will start at 11:30 a.m. today and cover a host of topics.
One topic could include the fast decline of Tim Tebow. As Farmer wrote earlier this week,
"All that talk about his being a true factor in the offense? Blather.
"Tebow hasn't been involved in one scoring play this season, and the notion of his running the wildcat or being a threat around the goal line doesn't rank as even an afterthought anymore.
"Greg McElroy will start at quarterback Sunday when the Jets host the San Diego Chargers, yet another admission that the decision to trade for Tebow was a failure. No matter what the Jets promised Tebow when they acquired him from the Denver Broncos last spring, they didn't come through with it.
