The atmosphere surrounding the New York Jets under Rex Ryan has been circus like at time. After the Jets traded for Tim Tebow last season they invited the ultimate side show into campus. The Tebowmania situation is one of the scapegoats for a disappointing 2012 season and has been blamed for Mark Sanchez’s lack of confidence and performance.

The scapegoat is gone now and wide receiver Braylon Edwards says the team seems more stable than years past.

“I think a lot of time people fall out of their role and they try getting involved in other things that don’t concern them,” Edwards said, according to USA Today. “That’s not just the players and a lot of time when it’s not just the players, that’s when organizations fall apart.

“… People need to stay in their lane. When they stay in their lane, you got everybody going straight. You can’t crash if everybody is going straight and everybody is in their lane. But if you’re weaving in different lanes, then you have crashes, you have pileups. If we got everybody going straight, the sky is the limit.”

There is no argument that the circus like atmosphere is toned down. ESPN isn’t camping out showing video 24/7 of the ‘punt protector’ running around with his shirt off.
