Jets announce that Greg McElroy will start vs. Chargers

Greg McElroy AP

Mark Sanchez has been benched. Tim Tebow has been bypassed. Greg McElroy is the New York Jets’ starting quarterback.

McElroy, who has played in only one game in his NFL career, has been announced as the starter for the Jets on Sunday against the Chargers. Jets coach Rex Ryan made the decision after Sanchez had a disastrous four-interception game in a Monday night loss that eliminated the Jets from playoff contention.

Although Ryan has insisted all season that Tebow is the No. 2 quarterback and McElroy is No. 3, it’s telling that Ryan chose not to go to Tebow after benching Sanchez. Ryan apparently doesn’t think there’s any chance that Tebow has any future as the starting quarterback of the Jets, while McElroy could potentially emerge as the starter in 2013, if he plays well over the final two weeks of 2012.

One thing the Jets haven’t made clear is whether Sanchez has been demoted all the way down to No. 3 on the depth chart — in which case he probably won’t even be active on Sunday — or if he is still ahead of Tebow. Frankly, Ryan would probably be doing Sanchez a favor if he made him the inactive No. 3 on Sunday. The fans in New Jersey will be brutal toward Sanchez if they’re given the chance.

But no matter who’s No. 2, Ryan has decided that McElroy, who replaced Sanchez and led the Jets to a come-from-behind win over the Cardinals in his one and only regular-season appearance, is the new No. 1.

    Can’t wait for all the Tebowmaniacs to start complaining that the #2 guy got passed over for the #3 guy.

    All I can say is, somewhere Brady Quinn is smiling.

  2. nflofficeadmin says: Dec 18, 2012 3:05 PM

    Rex doesn’t have the stones to start Tebow. Scared to death of the situation that would occur if they won the game with Tim playing under center.

  3. cooklynn17 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:05 PM

    Like it matters…

  4. brenenostler says: Dec 18, 2012 3:06 PM

    Even though the odds of this happening are very slim, I think New York should hire Hue Jackson to run the offense and bring in Jason Campbell to compete for the starting job in 2013. The Hue/Campbell combo was working really well in 2011 before Campbell got hurt.

  5. jrfrom508 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:06 PM

    Bring back Sanchez!!!

    - Pats fans everywhere.

  6. zoxitic says: Dec 18, 2012 3:07 PM

    Hey Tim, you still glad you chose NY over Jax?

  7. shootscuz says: Dec 18, 2012 3:07 PM

    What a joke. Rex is afraid Tebow might come in and lead the team to a couple wins. If that happened then Rex’s seat my get really hot.

  8. steelmeats says: Dec 18, 2012 3:07 PM

    Rex should find a way to bench himself

  9. crubenst says: Dec 18, 2012 3:09 PM

    Rex can’t start Tebow. If he wins a few games, Rex will be crucified for not going to him earlier.

  10. zaggs says: Dec 18, 2012 3:10 PM

    “Big brother” of New York? More like special brother that you have to wipe his own drool off of him. Maybe they should trade for David Carr.

  11. electionconfidential says: Dec 18, 2012 3:10 PM

    This is a bad team currently not even living up to that description. The head coach is inept on offense and a congenital liar when it comes to the subject of Tebow. We can talk about the Jets all we want, but there is little hope for them next season. It’s a sideshow at best. Why aren’t we talking about more of the good teams in the league??

  12. garryfish says: Dec 18, 2012 3:10 PM

    Starting him 1 game too late!

  13. daknight93 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:10 PM

    Sanchez didn’t get the job done and deserves to be benched…a little too late, but now Rex realizes loyalty to a struggling quarterback all season was a mistake, but oh well..Mcelroy gets his shot to spark this awful team.

  14. fafaflunky says: Dec 18, 2012 3:10 PM

    why no tebow

  15. chief67 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:10 PM

    What is Tebow even doing on the team then ?

  16. hehateme2 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:12 PM

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen a franchise that is so messed up! Even those 1 win teams had it more together than the 2012 jets.

  17. rodaday says: Dec 18, 2012 3:13 PM

    Ryan is a complete moron. I was at the Jets-Cards game, McElroy did nothing but hand the ball off and throw some short floaters. The kid is smart but he does not have an NFL arm.

    He won’t let Tebow have a chance because any doubt about Ryan’s stupidity will be erased when Tebow succeeds. As a matter of fact, my guess is he makes Sanchez the #2 and deactivates Tebow. I’m sure he’ll say Tebow re-injured his ribs.

    The Chargers will eat up McElroy in the first half. Then Ryan will turn to Sanchez who will come in and equally suck.

    This train wreck and the Jet fans reaction on Sunday is going to be AWESOME! :-)

  18. tooz72 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:14 PM

    but Sanchez gives them the best chance to lose and we love seeing the Jest lose

  19. dizzack says: Dec 18, 2012 3:14 PM

    Lions should shop Matthew Stafford and his contract to the Jets.

  20. knackstermyea says: Dec 18, 2012 3:14 PM

    Teabow might lead em to a coulpe of wins? The guy dont even know how to audible. Did you see lasts night game? Teabow should play tight end and give up tryin to be a QB in the NFL.

  21. raiderufan says: Dec 18, 2012 3:14 PM

    This decision is 15 weeks late….

  22. sbmcintosh36 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:15 PM

    McElroy was the only choice he’s already picked his starting RB’s this was a QB pick sorry Teblow !!!
    I love how Rex would be on hot seat if Teblow won a game of he started first of all he already is for not playing Teblow who was the owners choice that’s why he’s on the roster secondly anytime you miss playoffs the seat is hot and either way he’s not going anywhere how he won any games with that steaming pile that Mike T gave him on offense is amazing

  23. muckey says: Dec 18, 2012 3:22 PM

    Why do people still talk about Tebow? Regardless if he was given a chance earlier in the season, he’s not an NFL QB. He never will be. That guy couldn’t even beat 3rd team and practice squard team defenses in preseason…..the Jets know what they have in Tebow and it ain’t much.

  24. ebr362 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:26 PM

    Love him or hate him, you have to feel bad for Tebow. He has handled this debacle with class. Ryan is an overrated ass. He took what was left of Mangini’s roster and made a run in the playoffs, he changed the team to his style and they have tanked since. Tebow is not the one that should be benched or inactive its Ryan. Also great move bringing in Sparano, he did to the jets offense what he did to miami’s. Time to sweep house, actually as a Dolphin fan, resign them all!

  25. firethorn1001 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:26 PM

    This would be interesting if it oh.. I don’t know.. mattered.

  26. nflsucker says: Dec 18, 2012 3:27 PM

    Maybe McElroy doesn’t have a great arm, but it was looking like Sanchez had been getting blood transfusions from Jamarcus Russell, i.e. the worst football instincts of any starting QB in the league.

    I’ll miss the human blooper reel in a way. Once you knew for sure the Jets were going nowhere with that atrocious offense, watching Sanchez do stupid things was actually kinda entertaining.

  27. jamaltimore says: Dec 18, 2012 3:28 PM

    Rex is a tool! Tebow took a team with a good defense to the playoffs last year and beat the steelers. This year he gets no playing time and WATCHES the worst QB in the league destroy the jets season.

    Ask yourself this Jet fans: Do you really believe Tebow in week 13 could not take the jets into Nashville and score more than 14 points to win the game.

    Not sure what went on but for a coach who won a SUPERBOWL with Trent Dilfer and Tony Banks as his teams qb it seems like he totally whiffed on the opportunity with Tebow.

    Hate all you want but Tebow led Jets after 14 games would have a better Record than Sanchez led jets team!

  28. grudenlikesme says: Dec 18, 2012 3:28 PM

    Did anyone see the Titans punter flop and cower like a fetus in the endzone on the shanked kick ? That was funny.

  29. azarkhan says: Dec 18, 2012 3:29 PM

    Jets fans can rest easy knowing that the fate of the franchise is in the hands of that QB par excellence, Greg McElroy.

  30. brianjoates says: Dec 18, 2012 3:29 PM

    Tebow needs to try the Flutie route and give the CFL a shot, nobody wants him in the NFL as a QB. He is wasting whatever talent he may have and is a major distraction to any team.

  31. capecotton says: Dec 18, 2012 3:31 PM

    Not a Tebow fan but boy did this young man get sold a bill of goods by Rex Ryan. He came with good intentions, was told he would be the #2 QB, did nothing all season but everything they want him to do and towed the party line with a smile and now, as I could have predicted, Rex screws him over.

    If I was Tebow, I would be furious. Instead of having two games to at least try and resurrect my tattered reputation (from being associated with this circus), I’m demoted and #3 starts. Turns out the whole #2 thing was just a ruse by Ryan to try and get their opponents to waste practice time on the Tebow style offense.

    And they call Belichick classy… (sarcastically).

  32. coutre says: Dec 18, 2012 3:32 PM

    They are going to absolutely destroy McElroy’s confidence the same way they did to Tebow and Sanchez.
    Anyone want to guess what network Tannenbaum will be working for next year?

  33. FinFan68 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:36 PM

    They got exactly what they wanted out of the Tebow trade: ATTENTION. Now, there is no way Rex will start Tebow. If he comes in and plays even halfway decent and wins, Rex would not survive the media/fans aftermath questioning his decisions all year. McElroy gets the starts because that is the only way Rex coaches next year. He still might get fired but if he starts Tebow or Sanchez it would make it a certainty.

  34. fwippel says: Dec 18, 2012 3:37 PM

    This decision makes the Jets organization look even worse.

    Why bypass Tebow? He hasn’t started a game yet this year, and all the team has done is placed him in “special” packages which are specifically designed to keep him from developing as a passer.

    Are the Jets admitting that acquiring Tebow was nothing but a gimmick designed to sell more Jets jerseys? If not, then Tebow ought to be starting next week.

    If so, then someone needs to explain why they signed a QB who put up a 7-4 record last year and who engineered an upset victory over the Steelers (by throwing for more than 300 yards), and didn’t bother giving him a chance to start, while their starter spent the season floundering week after week.

    This organization is giving the Matt Millen era Detroit Lions a run for their money.

  35. cuda1234 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:38 PM

    Love to hear form all the zealots who think Tebow “deserves” to start or that he’d actually contribute to a victory. Apparently they are smarter than the three NFL coaching staffs who have worked with Timmy since he got into the league.

  36. gbar22 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:40 PM

    Why would the lions shop Matthew stafford to the jets that makes absolutely zero sense from a lions standpoint. Dizzack obvioualy thinks more with his dizzack than his brain.

  37. ballinmore says: Dec 18, 2012 3:46 PM

    At least Rex can admit that Tebow is a joke by doing this. Someone finally had to have the stones to do it.

  38. sdelmonte says: Dec 18, 2012 3:47 PM

    Great. They’re at home, so NYC is stuck with this as the only 1 pm game.

  39. mrgroovesd says: Dec 18, 2012 3:47 PM

    Well ok! That means Jets have a chance to win without Sanchez throwing picks. Which means the Bolts will lose and get a better pick in the draft and Norv/AJ will be most definitely gone! Yes, I am a Charger fan LOL.

  40. yyyass says: Dec 18, 2012 3:47 PM

    They’ll be holding Rex’s feet to the fire now. Which probably turns him on quite nicely actually.

  41. gauchopayne says: Dec 18, 2012 3:50 PM

    Tim Tebow=slower but luckier Michael Vick. Oh wait, Vick’s career completion % is 9 points higher.

  42. paredskinwarrior1985 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:50 PM

    hahahahha that proves turdbow is a pos qb!!!!

    is he really that self serving or is he just dumber than 98% of the world thinks he is to keep trying to be a qb when he doesn’t have the skill, the arm or the brains for it!!!

    If he wants another payday that only the nfl could give he needs to put his ego aside and give up on being a qb and start training and learning to be a rb , fb, and a te!!!!

    turdbow could even turn out to be the next peyton hillis at rb one day.

    I almost wish rex would start him just one game and show all his fans how bad he is and how the jets get blown out wth him starting at qb!!

  43. mannyicey says: Dec 18, 2012 3:51 PM

    If anyone’s surprised. Ryan’s a politician. They put Sanchez out there and put him in the absolute best position to win the game.

    They put Tebow out there and gave him a limited package with no audibles. He looked terrible for a series while Sanchez can look great.

    Sanchez didn’t. So he can go to the owner and say “It’s Sanchez’ fault. And Tebow can’t play. So in my infinite football wisdom, I put in McElroy. He’s the FUTURE, but he looked good under MY Leadership! So my future rides with McElroy!”

    Meanwhile, Sanchez should have been benched Week 6. Tebow should have been in Jacksonville and McElroy should have started.

  44. metitometin says: Dec 18, 2012 3:52 PM

    Seriously, Tebow should demand a trade right now to a team where he can compete for a starting job. He led the Broncos to the playoffs last year, yet the Jets have treated him like an embarrassing freak show all season long and the way they’ve used him has been even worse.

    If I were Tebow, I would be extremely offended at not only the way the Jets have used him but how players have sniped about him and backstabbed him behind his back. If I were Tebow, right about now I’d be picking fights with my teammates. Greg McElroy? Really?

  45. ninjapleazee says: Dec 18, 2012 3:53 PM

    Urlacher said it best last season when teblow was all hyped “he’s a running back not a quarterback”

  46. wellwtf says: Dec 18, 2012 3:54 PM

    I was just thinking how we need more articles on completely irrelevent teams, thanks again PFT

  47. Patskrieg dot com says: Dec 18, 2012 3:54 PM

    I think very highly of Greg McElroy, and I’m thrilled he’s getting his shot.

    But we should all be so lucky to have the bar set this low by our professional predecessors.

  48. kvvvv2391 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:55 PM

    Is McElroy going to commit full time to football? Or is he going to continue playing on the PGA Tour?

  49. pemory says: Dec 18, 2012 3:57 PM

    I don’t consider myself a Tim Tebow fanatic, but I believe he’s been treated very unprofessionally by the Jets. On the other hand, perhaps NOT playing QB for them the next few weeks will help him. In other words, how is playing QB for this sorry team going to boost his NFL career?

  50. source7769 says: Dec 18, 2012 3:58 PM

    all you tebow cry babies shut up with the tebow let the broncos to the playoffs and beat pitt , as far as i remember didnt sanchez win 4 playoff road games ? id say thats a more impressive resume tebow won games on wacky situations try recreating the same situations again i bet they dont win all of those again , by the way tebow doesnt get into the playoffs if not for a bears team with caleb hanie at qb and a kicker who made 2 big time incredible length fgs

  51. konichiwabtches says: Dec 18, 2012 4:02 PM

    Rex and Norv had a bet going on who’s Qb would turn the ball over more this sunday …so he benched Sanchez to give himself a chance

  52. hjworton46 says: Dec 18, 2012 4:05 PM

    Sanchez is not the problem in NJ. He’ll win somewhere else next season. Rex Ryan had a window of glory and it has now closed. Goodbye and good riddance.

  53. dbarnes79 says: Dec 18, 2012 4:07 PM

    Is it just me or does every USC QB suck at the NFL level?

  54. thechronicjoker says: Dec 18, 2012 4:08 PM

    And if he gets hurt your new QB will be season ticket holder number…….?

  55. barbeaux says: Dec 18, 2012 4:09 PM

    A QB’s success in the nfl is often dictated the situation and system of the team. Some teams are just QB killers. Eli realized that and did the right thing.

  56. ejm845 says: Dec 18, 2012 4:09 PM

    to bad rex waited till his job and sanchez job were history b/4 making switch watch as McElroy wins next 2 and is next years starter for whoever the next coach is now he can go home and suck the lint out from between his wifes toes

    Love to hear form all the zealots who think Tebow “deserves” to start or that he’d actually contribute to a victory. Apparently they are smarter than the three NFL coaching staffs who have worked with Timmy since he got into the league.

    He’s not a traditional QB with a traditional throwing style. Any QB can be coached. It’s finding a good enough coach to bring out his true potential. Tebow is not as awful as most of you say you just dont agree with his life style…. orrr more so you are jealous of his almost perfect life? Not sure but most of the Tebow hate is not related his his play as QB. You just have a bunch of dolts that can’t bring anything else up about it.

  58. hoodheisman says: Dec 18, 2012 4:16 PM

    So after taking the Broncos to the 2nd round of the playoffs, Tebow is “rewarded” by getting traded to the worst coached team in the NFL so he could be used as a marketing ploy. As a Raider fan, I thought I saw the worst when Al Davis hit rock bottom…. but this is just as ridiculous.

  59. henryd3rd says: Dec 18, 2012 4:22 PM

    Time to tune into the Knicks games because none of the other NY Teams are going to be contending for anything anytime soon. Giants, Yankees, Mets, Rangers or Nets

  60. superputman says: Dec 18, 2012 4:28 PM

    henry, the Giants still have a shot of contention… I’m not a fan… I like the only football team that actually plays in NY… but technically the G-spots are still contending.

  61. cmdrsmooth says: Dec 18, 2012 4:28 PM

    Rex problem is that he promised Sanchez the starting job and named Tebow the back up. Rex should have made them earn their job.

    Problem was the one guy who had to earn it would had taken it from them if it was open competition from the very start.

  62. superputman says: Dec 18, 2012 4:34 PM

    hoodheisman.. are you serious? As if he was the only reason the Broncos got to the playoffs last year lol I’d argue they would have stood a better chance without him.

    but yeah… seeing things your way.. they should have skipped over a future Hall of Famer and stuck with the Philipino missionary guy with a 40% completion rate because he won them 1 playoff game lol

  63. sactogary says: Dec 18, 2012 4:37 PM

    You people ragging on Tebow about how he can’t throw – you realize that his career passer rating is higher than that of the guy who’s been starting for the Jets for four years, right?

  64. azarkhan says: Dec 18, 2012 4:37 PM

    The anti-Tebow crazies are so full of hate and pettiness that they sound like Democrats.

  65. azwildcats96 says: Dec 18, 2012 4:47 PM

    Tebow s a far better game manager than Sanchez. Tebow was successful because he kept turnovers to a minimum. Punting five times is still better than throwing four interceptions and a fumble. Tebow beat Sanchez not in practice but in a real game when it mattered.

  66. sail105 says: Dec 18, 2012 4:52 PM

    Why worry about Tebow-he’ll be gone to some place next year and have a chance to prove himself for once and for all. Personally, I wish him luck, but I don’t think he has what it takes.

    For the Jets, while they are cleaning house they have to look at all the dumb moves for the year:
    GM-gone, Head Coach-gone- Off. Coordinator-dump him today, don’t wait any longer after watching that latest piece of completely terminal stupidity. Too bad you they can’t fire the Owner as all those other idiots were put in place on his watch.

  67. jetzman says: Dec 18, 2012 4:56 PM

    Glad to see McElroy getting a shot, lets see what he can do in 2 full games. It should have been done weeks ago. It was clear what you were getting from Sanchez – TO after TO; 40% passer at best. Tebow – run into A or B gap time after time. Now it’s time to dump Sporano and Tannenbaum too.

  68. richerie13 says: Dec 18, 2012 4:56 PM

    Who cares, the season is over.

  69. ebbycalvinlaloosh says: Dec 18, 2012 4:58 PM

    Ryan might be an idiot, but even an idiot can see that Tim Tebow is not an NFL QB. The Jets coaching staff has figured that out, just like the Broncos did last year. McElroy might not be a highly-touted prospect, but they should find out if he has a chance to make it in the NFL. They already know that Tebow does not. Look at the Broncos offensive (man were they ever) statistics from last season, when they changed the entire offense to cover up Tebow’s shortcomings. The result? One of the worst offenses I’ve ever seen. Led the league in 3-and-outs. But just give him a shot! He deserves it, right? Wrong. He got a shot last year, and he was terrible.

    Top 3 Reasons For Jets Fans to Celebrate Jets Elimination from Playoff Contention:

    3) End of Sanchez “era”

    2) Determine whether McElroy can be a legitimate NFL QB

    1) Only two more weeks of having to have moronic Tebow-ites infest Jets articles.

    All I can say is, somewhere Brady Quinn is smiling.
    ————————————————————

    Really? Which Brady Quinn? The one with 4 career victories in 5 seasons? Or the one with a QB Rating of 66.1? Or maybe the one with 12 passing TD’s in 22 games played over his career?

    I know Tebow ‘aint no Dan Marino, but dont act like Brady Quinn is either.

  72. bigbamboom1 says: Dec 18, 2012 5:02 PM

    I feel sorry for McElroy! Sparano will expect him to run the “Wildcat” now. And Gregg is a real QB with an arm, brain, daring and imagination. Things just got interesting in NY. They are now starting the guy who should have started day 1 of this season. Especially after McElroy had the courage to call out the poisonous teammates (Plaxico and Santonio) publicly and to their faces. I wish him well. Even though I’m a Patriot fan. But I think this guy could be a hidden pearl, if Sparano doesn’t wreck him.

  73. bobappraisals says: Dec 18, 2012 5:11 PM

    All the jets need in 2013 to be competitive is to shore up both lines as they both suck, 1 more fast rb and two receivers and they are at least 9-7 with Sanchez

  74. ebbycalvinlaloosh says: Dec 18, 2012 5:13 PM

    He said “Brady Quinn is smiling” because the same thing happened to him in Denver as what’s happening to Tebow in New York. Quinn was widely believed to be the “#2″ behind Orton, but was “bypassed” for Tebow. Now Tebow suffers the same fate. That’s why Brady would be smiling. The statement had nothing to do with Quinn’s ability as a QB.

  75. pisano says: Dec 18, 2012 5:19 PM

    Finally, thank God they give this guy a shot. Sanchez has worn out his welcome, hopefully he’ll be gone before next season.

  76. bullcharger says: Dec 18, 2012 5:20 PM

    brenenostler says:Dec 18, 2012 3:06 PM

    Even though the odds of this happening are very slim, I think New York should hire Hue Jackson to run the offense and bring in Jason Campbell to compete for the starting job in 2013. The Hue/Campbell combo was working really well in 2011 before Campbell got hurt.

    —————-

    As a Patriots fan, nothing would make me happier. Campbell stinks.

  77. yanksbills says: Dec 18, 2012 5:21 PM

    Tim Tebow will go down as the most mis-managed player in the history of sports.

    I can’t really stand the guy, but I feel sorry for him.

  78. bullcharger says: Dec 18, 2012 5:23 PM

    —————–

    Tebow is horrible and so is Sanchez. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Look what manning has done with Denver. They were basically a good team missing a good QB. They carried Tebow, not the other way around. It makes sense to give McElroy a shot and if he is awful too then the Jets need to draft another QB.

    ————-

    It’s not anti-Tebow to say he isn’t skilled enough to be a starting QB in the NFL. He made it to the playoffs running an offense that cannot work long term in the NFL. He isn’t capable of running a proper NFL offense. RGIII, Russel Wilson and Kaepernick both have most of what Tebow has in terms of the run game and they all can throw it accurately. Tebow can’t do it. That is not anti-Tebow, it’s just logic and truth.

    Tebow s a far better game manager than Sanchez. Tebow was successful because he kept turnovers to a minimum. Punting five times is still better than throwing four interceptions and a fumble. Tebow beat Sanchez not in practice but in a real game when it mattered.

    —————

    Probably true, but neither are good enough to win consistently in the NFL. The Jets need to go back to the drawing board.

    Even though the odds of this happening are very slim, I think New York should hire Hue Jackson to run the offense and bring in Jason Campbell to compete for the starting job in 2013. The Hue/Campbell combo was working really well in 2011 before Campbell got hurt.”

    That’s like saying the Musgrave/Ponder combo is working really well in MN. Campbell is souless and it showed in his playing. The only reason that offense moved down the field is because of Run DMC.

    It’s absurd to simultaneously argue (1) that Mark Sanchez stinks; and (2) that Ryan is a bad coach. It’s got to be one or the other. It can’t be both. Ryan’s been a HC in the league for four years, and he’s gone to two AFC Championship Games with Sanchez. If Sanchez is really that bad, then that’s one hell of an achievement.

    Why do people still talk about Tebow? Regardless if he was given a chance earlier in the season, he’s not an NFL QB. He never will be. That guy couldn’t even beat 3rd team and practice squard team defenses in preseason…..the Jets know what they have in Tebow and it ain’t much.

    You are an idiot! Tebow may have his challenges at the QB spot, but dont go overboard! His career winning pct. and QB rating surpasses the Jet’s starter….and i’m sure a few others! He definitely is not the best QB, but he has proven he can play and WIN.

    Mark Sanchez has found a new way to hurt his team. Him not starting means they may potentially win a game and thus moving the Jets out of the more ideal draft position. WTG!

    Dear Mark Sanchez, Matt Leinart, Carson Palmer, Matt Cassel and John David Booty:

    Thanks a lot guys. I really appreciate everything you’ve done in the NFL to make my signing bonus as large as possible.

    Signed,

    Matt “will i even be drafted now?” Barkley

    Trade Revis for a QB. Defense is acceptable as is. Offense is worst I have ever seen.

    … Look what manning has done with Denver. They were basically a good team missing a good QB. They carried Tebow, not the other way around. …
    ——————————————————
    There is this misconception out there that Tebow just lucked into an ideal situation and got credit he deserved no part of. Please google “2011 NFL preview” to see what the expectations were for Denver. They were the consensus last place finishers in their division. Were they simply misjudged? Well, they started out 1-4 with a quarterback who looked obviously superior in practice.

    Under Tebow they went 7-4. Yes, the defense stepped up and deserves credit. The kicker made some great kicks. Lucky breaks happened. But there was also a lot of clutch play in crucial situations from Tebow – situation like the Jets were facing Monday night. Gratuitous Tebow-bashing is very trendy right now, but it’s not very objective.

    Sanchez is pulling a Matt Leinert and going to get paid for not playing and eventually for being cut….USC guys

  97. tearunner says: Dec 18, 2012 10:46 PM

    McElroy doesn’t have an arm? He can out-throw Tebow.

    As for destroying his confidence… Doubtful. He played under Saban and has a championship under his belt. He may get outplayed but he can throw downfield and he won’t be shaken.

    Right, because the Jets have made the playoffs six times in the last 12 years, and the Browns have made the playoffs twice since 1990.

    From the outside it’s clear. First to go should be Sanchez, he’s not NFL quality. Next to go should be this Rex Ryan pretend coach. Look what he has done to the Jets. The guy that messed up the Jets is still calling the shots, what do you expect? As for Tebow, it’s also clear that the girlie men on the Jets and around the league are afraid of him.

  100. draconian1111 says: Dec 19, 2012 6:52 AM

    You want Tebow as your QB – cool – but please not on any team I want to see win.
    I’d be MORE than happy to have Tebow – as a safety – he’s buff, quick, and hopefully, being a “QB” he knows offensive tendencies. Don’t know if he would hit hard though – but he sure has the capability – he could be GREAT – as safety. He can sit on a bench – as a QB.

    There are 32 starting QBs in the NFL – and while I am still amazed that some teams have made the QB choices they have made (Arizona…) – no way do I think Tebow is anywhere NEAR top 32 – not close. Tebow at starting QB would be a “well..we don’t have anyone else” move.
    Tebow in New York is a sideshow – and nothing more. I doubt they ever had ANY plan to start him – if ya did – why did you draft another QB?

    Love how you guys spend so much time promoting and publicising a losing, krappy team.
