The Week 11 Thursday Night Pick

Jets by 6 over Denver: The Pick - Broncos
You're not fooling anybody
by practicing that.


Tim Tebow is the gift that keeps on giving. After a game where he attempted eight passes and completed two of them, Denver coach John Fox said on Wednesday, "if we were trying to run a regular offense, he'd be screwed."  By "regular offense," we can only assume he meant one that was invented after 1927.  Jim Harbaugh is getting all the love but Fox deserves some coach of the year recognition for taking over a team that Josh McDaniels spent two years running with the Isiah Thomas handbook, traded its best offensive player five games into the season and is starting a 42 year old running back and a tight end at quarterback.  Now they host the Jets and their defense that is designed to shut down quarterbacks who play like Tom Brady not Larry Csonka.  If I was the wide receiver being covered by Darrelle Revis, before every snap I'd say "it's another running play" and then run straight down the field as fast as I could cackling.
