What Do You Do In New York?
by Pietro DiSante Jr,posted Dec 5 2012 4:05PM
Normally, when you are (5-7), you do not get much press. However, this is New York City and this is the New York Jets. Last week, Mark Sanchez was BENCHED for 3rd string quarterback Greg McElroy, after Sanchez threw 3 interceptions against the Cardinals. McElroy would go on to lead the Jets to a 7-6 victory, so the question had to be asked: Who is the Jets starting quarterback now? All year it was always Sanchez or Tebow?
Each week the answer has been Sanchez, as he has started all 12 games. Rex Ryan announced today that he would make it 13, as Sanchez will start at Jacksonville. I agree with the move. I think Sanchez being on the road against a poor (2-10) Jaguars team is a good test. If he continues to struggle against them, then maybe it is time to pull the plug on Sanchez. I would start him until the Jets are officially out of the playoff hunt (currently 2 games back of the 6th Wild Card Spot). Once that happens I would see what Tebow can do, by starting him. Seems like the Jets coaching staff has 0 faith in him though.
What about 2013 now? Very good question. All three quarterbacks are under contract for the Jets in 2013, including Sanchez's over $8 million guaranteed. I think the Jets will either trade or release Tebow. Bring a veteran or rookie in to compete with Sanchez, and keep McElroy as the #3. This is all assuming Rex Ryan is back as Head Coach. If Rex is out, then who knows what will happen? Ah, the life of a Jets fan...
No love for McElroy either, despite leading his team to a much needed win. I was proud of the kid. I have always felt he should be the #2 quarterback this season. Tebowmania has said otherwise though. Still, for his one chance to play this season, he flew like a Jet!
