As if they didn't have enough problems with injuries, inconsistency on defense and a likely players' strike, the New York Jets now must worry about Steve Grogan. The New England Patriots quarterback, in his 13th National Football League season, has made a habit of picking on the Jets. Grogan is 10-5 against New York, and has hit on 54.3% of his passes for 3,386 yards and 29 touchdowns.

Tim Tebow is now a member of the New York Jets, a team that recently signed Mark Sanchez to a three-year contract extension. That means the Jets' roster now includes two quarterbacks who were starters in 2011. That could turn into quite a dilemma for Coach Rex Ryan. So let's try to help him out. First, let's take a look at what he's getting in Tebow. In 11 games as Denver's starter last season, Tebow went 7-4 to help salvage the season for a team that started 1-4. He had 18 touchdowns (12 passing, six rushing)

The Denver Broncos trade of Tim Tebow to the New York Jets for fourth- and sixth-round draft picks could be in jeopardy, according to a report by Adam Shefter of ESPN .

The New York Jets have now failed to score a touchdown in 14 quarters, but on Saturday they faced an offense even more inept than theirs. The result was a 3-0 victory over the Washington Redskins, who never got inside the Jets' 30-yard line. The only score of the game was Cary Blanchard's 45-yard field goal late in the first quarter on the Jets' first possession. "A real offensive outburst, right?" Jet Coach Bruce Coslet said.

The New York Jets should hope that rookie Geno Smith doesn't telegraph passes as badly as they do. In a move that surprised no one, the Jets on Wednesday named Smith as the starting quarterback for Sunday's opener against Tampa Bay. Although the move was long predicted, it could be the official beginning of the end for Mark Sanchez, who suffered a bruised shoulder in the third preseason game and is expected to sit out multiple weeks. Smith, a second-round pick, also had a rough outing in that exhibition game against the New York Giants, his first start.

Mark Sanchez will keep his job as the New York Jets' starting quarterback for at least one more week. Coach Rex Ryan ended days of speculation Wednesday by announcing that the Jets' starter since 2009 will remain in that role Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars, despite struggling all season and being benched late in the third quarter last weekend against the St. Louis Cardinals. Ryan said he consulted several people and "put a lot of thought" into the question before making a decision late Tuesday night.
