Rex Ryan has yet to name a starting quarterback for the Jets' upcoming game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, but instead offered the following quote.
"I've got three quarterbacks I feel good about," Ryan said. "I think we're in a lot better situation than a lot of teams."
I haven't seen the video to put this in proper context, but which of the three quarterbacks can Ryan feel good about? The one he benched? The one half the team trash talked to the media this season? Or the one who trash-talked the entire team to the media less than a year ago?
And they're certainly not better off than any of the teams who are, you know, actually in the playoffs.

But at least Tim Tebow made the news for something positive, after he responded to a Twitter campaign in support of a 17-year old hurt in a car accident.
Bob Costas' comments continue to spark conversation, and after he appeared on Dan Patrick's radio, DP offered some remarks on gun control along racial lines (the segment starts at the 28 min mark, goes in at the 31 min mark), with poor execution.
black ppl have guns because of culture and white guys just want to hunt? what you think? RT @hoa_kob: how you feeling about those comments?— Bomani Jones (@bomani_jones) December 4, 2012
