12:34 PM ET 04.25 | The New York Jets have been busy this week, most notably by trading Darrelle Revis to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and acquiring the 13th pick the first round of the NFL draft, but are they going to use one of their first-round picks on a quarterback? Speculation as of Wednesday is that despite the demotion of Mark Sanchez in 2012, and the continuing presence of Tim Tebow, the Jets will not do so. But is it all another smokescreen? It's hard to argue that the Jets don't need an upgrade at quarterback, but new general manager John Idzik has stood pat with Sanchez, Tebow, and backup Greg McElroy, while adding David Garrard and Matt Simms to the roster as well. If the Jets do not draft a quarterback, then it's likely that one of those players will be the starting quarterback for New York in 2013, a framework that did not work out that well for the Jets in 2012.

The sad thing about that picture is that someone's head is still inside it.

The Jets never miss an opportunity to miss an opportunity.

The Raiders though... they seize opportunity.

Bucs - Bills - Titans - Bills - Raiders - Panthers

And those are only the weak teams. I'm not sure they can beat 5 of those teams, even.

Look for The Jets to get The first Pick in The Draft Next Year!! 2-13!

I could see the Jets taking Geno Smith @ 9 - but only if they can be sure they'd get Austin @13...

I can see the Jets Billboards already...

Cause Marketing is what the Jets do... Kind of like a Used car Salesman (no offense to any Used car Salesmen out there :-)

The Jets are on the same course as the Titanic, except they threw the heart of the ocean overboard early. In a trade.

No, they can use the Buttfumble to snatch defeat from the jaws, uh..., crack of victory.

Yeah, but the buttfumble was poorly executed. Maybe they'll perfect it. It'll become a thing. Flash mobs will perform to a horrible novelty song called Buttfumble Boogie we'll all claim to hate, though we'll secretly download it.
