The king is dead, long live the king.
Obviously we are being rather generous with the term "king" when referring to Mark Sanchez. But it does finally appear that his days are numbered given the Jets recent draft pick of Geno Smith. No offense to Mark, but holy shit he is a fucking horrible quarterback. Even when he got protection last year, he forced it into coverage... or fumbled. Who can forget the infamous butt fumble? Pretty much summed up the state of the Jets franchise. It appears the Jets are willing to give Sanchez one last shot, but his leash will be shorter than his "relationship" with Kate Upton.
Given the low (underground?) expectations set last year, the thought of Geno Smith starting genuinely excites me. Dude's clearly not afraid to make throws, or even take off running when needed. That being said, he appears grounded when it comes to dating. Thanks to a reader tip, we have learned that Geno Smith's girlfriend is Kristen Stubbs.
While not completely obvious at first glance, Kristen Stubbs' Instagram account all but confirms that she is dating Geno Smith. The connection first can be made actually by a drawing of Smith that Stubbs made. Stubbs has also posted pictures of herself in a Jets shirt as well as wearing a Jets hat flying home from New York. Probably the most solid evidence though comes from a picture of her in the Jets locker room with the comment "Getting an official tour of the training facility".
According to our reader, they both went to the same high school in Florida, so presumably they met before Smith became a big timer. Other than that, we'll have to wait until more info comes out once Smith grabs the starting spot. Thankfully, we probably won't have to wait too long for that...

The New York Jets are a terrible football team. And that’s coming from a Jets fan (despite previous edits to the contrary by our astute editor). Take a look at that roster for a sec. The starting QB (Sanchez) should be a backup but despite that fact, was given an $8 million extension last year. Maybe that was to boost his confidence, who knows? However, bringing in Jesus… excuse me, Tebow… to back him up probably negated any gains there. It’s a toss up between New York and Cleveland for worst offense, and any time your up against Cleveland for the “worst” of something, it’s not good. And the defense has regressed, capped off by Revis being out for most of the year with a knee injury. Just an absolute dumpster fire up there at The MetLife Stadium.
Just about the only thing we have going for us is Nick Mangold. Guy is a trooper, rarely missing a game or getting called for a penalty. We’re guessing Nick Mangold’s wife Jessica Richmond has something to do with that.
Mangold grew up in Ohio and went to Archbishop Alter High School. He was All-Ohio his senior year and continued his offensive line dominance at Ohio State, earning All-Big 10 honors his junior and senior years. But let’s back track to high school, which is where he met Richmond. They have dated since and were married in April 2007. Together they have been active in the charitable scene, and also the wine scene? Yes, Mangold is very knowledgeable about wine and has plans to eventually make his own. Somewhere in the distance I hear New England fans chuckling…

UPDATE: 12/20/2012: The worst year of Tebow's life continues. While miring in a ridiculous backup role to one of the worse quarterbacks in the world in Mark Sanchez, things off the field have taken a turn for the worse. While things were starting to look up after we first learned about Tim Tebow's girlfriend Camilla Belle, US Weekly is now reporting that after dating for two months exclusively, the couple has called it quits. In the ever perfectly manufactured PR image of Tebow, no comment has been released about his personal life. On to the next quest, Tim, and for your sake, we hope you go to an organization that might be willing to give you a crack.....
According to TMZ, after the pair was photographed bowling at Lattitude 30 in Jacksonville, FL, Tim Tebow's girlfriend is now Camilla Belle. This is a solid choice by Tebow for a number of reasons. First, she's quite attractive. Second, she makes her own money working as an actress (10,000 BC, When A Stranger Calls, Push - hey, we didn't say a good
actress). Third, Camilla actually has a history of dating virgins, as she dated Joe Jonas a few years back - so the whole waiting until marriage thing shouldn't be a huge deal for her.
As far as Tebow dating rumors go, this one seems to have the most legs. The Lindsey Vonn rumors were just ridiculous, as they were only spotted together on the ESPY's red carpet and that's hardly fact. The Katy Perry rumors, while intriguing, were rooted in nothing at all. As inoccous as being seen bowling together might be, this is as close to fact as we've ever seen with Tebow girlfriend rumors.
Also interesting is the fact that, with the Jets on bye this week, Tebow chose to immediately return to Florida. Since he's from there originally, and went to school there, that isn't all that surprising. But it really does make you wonder why, when he was given the choice by the Broncos to be traded either to the Jets or the Jaguars, he chose the Jets. Seriously, why not choose Jacksonville? He'd be the starting QB, the hero of the Jaguars, and be able to go bowling with girlfriend Camilla Belle whenever he wanted - not just on a bye week.
