You don't want to play Sanchez because you want to rebuild, BUT yet you don't want to play Tebow and find out what you would have in him.
So who would be the QB, Greg McElroy?
You know even less about his ability to lead this team than Tebow's.
At least Tebow has a track record of being a good leader, that his teammates will go to war for him.
If Tebow plays well enough not to dump him, then that means he did some good things, that alone is reason enough to start him.
That's right, Tim Tebow.
Peyton going to Denver is ONLY proof that an ELITE, WORLD CLASS QB was available on the market, and they felt that Manning would be able to take the franchise further than any other option available.
No one would deny that to be true, but that isn't an indication of Elway not wanting Tebow as QB if things didn't work out with Manning.
The Jets placed a call about Manning too, did that mean the Jets were actively trying to get rid of Sanchez during the past offseason.
Do you really think that if Manning would have came here that Sanchez would be the backup QB?
But they weren't able to make the deal happen with Manning, therefore the Jets had to go another season with Sanchez.
If you think Manning going to Denver played no part of Tebow being traded, then you're as delusional as you think I am.
Maybe the anarchic Jets have turned this forum into the asylum (preferably Arkham) where delusions are the norm, kind of how like order replaces chaos which in turn replaces the order which replaced chaos.
It's a quantum thing.

I know what I have in Tebow. He is not a QB. PERIOD.
I don't mind playing McElroy but you and I both know that won't happen. He hasn't played a single snap with the first team offense all season. If there's going to be a change at the QB position, it's going to be for Tebow. I hope to heavens that doesn't happen.
Of course Manning had to do with why Tebow was traded, It's just that Elway would have explored other options even if Manning had signed elsewhere.
Reports out of Denver at the time was Denver's backup plan if Manning spurned them was Matt Flynn. Is Matt Flynn in Manning's class?? Heck the Jets weren't interested in Flynn. Manning however is a once in a lifetime QB. You gotta kick the barrel on that one.
Elway wanted nothing to do with Tebow.
Tebow keeps you in games, occasionally wins em, but will never win a super bowl. He'll keep you mediocre. In sports, mediocre is the worst thing. You strive to be an elite team but if you're not, you have to be on the bottom so that you can rebuild. Jets have been mediocre for too long.

Instead you'd rather go with the weakest armed QB on the Jets roster, one that has not played with the 1st team, and one that is not known for throwing a good deep ball.
But at least he scored good on the wonderlich, right?
I'm no tebow supporter, but as a fan you need to ask yourself this... WHY NOT? Marks numbers are getting worse. There's no sign of improvement from him at all. There's no reason to continue to let him play. I hate to admit it but tebow could provide a spark and we can win some games. I'd be happy if they gave tebow a shot.
However if I was forced to make a change, I wouldn't MIND McElroy because with him there's a chance he might be a good QB based solely on the fact that he's a conventional QB.
With Tebow you're doomed to mediocrity and heartache.
Oh and Sanchez has two AFC title berths and right now he doesn't look like a very competent QB.
Rex will tout that performance as Sanchez finally turning the corner and we will end up going another year and a half with Sanchez at QB.
Like an X Jet just said. " Jets should put Sanchez out of his misery"
"The Butt of all jokes"
I am not going to read through this thread. Usually do, especially before I answer but I am in no mood to read all the QB bashing that will go on.
I will say this. I hope if people are honest they can tell that there is a big difference between the last 2 weeks and how Sanchez played before then. He is struggling now, but all QBs go through stretches hell even Brady and Eli have had their moments this season.
I will say this though
Rex's exact sentiments were it would be easy to blame him is we didn't have so many protection problems, wrong routes run, and dropped balls. Thats our head coach. I know some will say he is just protecting his player, but Rex isn't the tye to throw a bunch of guys under the bus like that if it wasn't true, specially not for ONE player.
And if you don't think weapons matter look around the league. Here is a quick beakdown of just a little over 1 quarter of Dolton.
Way underthrows a WIDE open receiver. But he is so open the receiver could stop running catch the ball and then take off again for a touchdown.
Then he misses another throw in which his receiver just couldn't get his second foot down. Big deal because his receiver BURNT the defender. As the commentator said he could have just laid it in there and it was a walk in because of how much room the receiver had ahead of the corner.
That ends up not mattering because he throws a touchdown to Hawkings. that touch down is a one handed catch with a defender draped all over him. He also had his tight end running across the middle, and he threw it behind him. The TE made an adjustment and made a play.
And then thats not even going into when he could just throw it to a back, something thats not even an option here.
If you don't think our weapons are making a difference those are all throws that the QB flat out missed on and they got a positive result out of.
And if I agreed with you I'd say your right. But my point with that comment is I can show you right now people wanted to get rid of Brady because of his play this season, and Eli has thrown like 1 touchdown in the last what, month?
