For his part, Rex Ryan said in the wake of Sunday's loss that he's not ready to make a quarterback change. He should make one. Bring on Tim Tebow. At this point Tebow, who saved the Broncos season last year, can't be any worse than the jittery Mark Sanchez. Perhaps the Jets will get some leadership from the most important position on the field. ... Tebow might not be the answer, but a change next Monday night against the Texans might wake up Sanchez, who appears to be living in a dream world. Rex was probably too mad at his defense, which surrendered 245 yards rushing to even notice how poorly Sanchez played. The fans noticed and there were Tebow chants, but Ryan doesn't want a QB controversy. He has enough problems. (New York Post) Comment
For the second time in as many seasons, Dwyane Wade's preseason has been undone by his own legs, and this time it's his knee. Four to six weeks was the projected recovery time. Training camp began Saturday, marking 11 1/2 weeks of Wade's rehabilitation from arthroscopic surgery on his left knee. He will miss preseason games, perhaps all of them. ... The Heat will not admit it publicly, but there are concerns among those in the organization about the second half of Wade's Hall of Fame career. Reckless abandon on the court made him famous and made him rich and made him loved in his adopted city of Miami, but now it's making him and the Heat refocus their expectations. Wade is only 30 years old, but it's an old 30. (Miami Herald) Comment
Bill Geivett now holds most of the cards in Denver. A meeting this weekend in Denver between [Geivett], the Rockies' director of major-league operations, and manager Jim Tracy will go a long way in determining not only whether Tracy returns, but the coaching staff and the club's direction. Rockies owner Dick Monfort said Sunday that no decision has been made on Tracy's future. He pointed to Geivett's discussion with Tracy this weekend as the important factor. Tracy has indicated he would like to return ... but his status has become increasingly uncertain following the worst season in Rockies history and the team's new front- office alignment. Tracy's future hinges almost solely on Geivett's recommendation. (The Denver Post) Comment
