The New York Jets' 2012 season has been tumultuous to say the least. From the QB drama between Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow to the locker room controversy headlined by linebacker Bart Scott, seemingly everything has gone wrong for Gang Green.
Let's look at the pictures, tweets and videos that best sum up the Jets' season:
We start with the training camp promise of a Tebow-Sanchez partnership:
The reality of the situation, however, was that Tebow would be more of a distraction than a part of the offense:
Tweets like this from Skip Bayless have been a constant theme throughout the season:
If Rex had replaced Sanchez with Tebow early in the season, Jets would be in the playoffs. #FreeTebow.— Skip Bayless (@RealSkipBayless) December 2, 2012
New York's season has been so bad that self-made fan mascot Fireman Ed felt the need to retire:
Why is Fireman Ed retiring? Jets have lost 3 home games by 21+ points. Only other time they did that was in 1962.— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 2, 2012
On Thanksgiving, Jets players had some choice words for booing fans:
A Bart Scott media boycott was imposed in November (the effort failed):
The best twist in the saga may have come in Week 13, as Sanchez was finally benched, but Tebow was inactive:
Probably more accurate than Sanchez too RT @stevepoliti: At this point, the Jets fans would settle for Rory McIlory. What's the difference?— Jemele Hill (@jemelehill) December 2, 2012
The Jets are now 4-111 all-time when scoring 7 pts or fewer in a game (this was 1st such win since 2003)— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 2, 2012
With four weeks left in the season, this roller coaster ride is sure to have a few twists and turns still to go.
