Before the 2010 season, the New York Jets traded safety Kerry Rhodes to the Arizona Cardinals for a pair of late-round draft picks. Jets coach Rex Ryan later called Rhodes "selfish" in his book.Rhodes was plenty selfish Sunday against his former team. Rhodes intercepted Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez twice and forced a fumble in the Cardinals' 7-6 loss. He also had six tackles and defensed three passes.The former Jet's performance helped get Sanchez benched. Rhodes told Kimberly A. Martin of Newsday that he told Sanchez "to keep his head up" throughout the game, adding that it's been a tough year for Sanchez with fans "calling for his head."Rhodes, who had two other picks and a forced fumble this season, said he knew the exact offensive play on his first interception against the Jets and baited Sanchez into the second one.Ryan was at least good enough to go to Rhodes after the contest and tell him he "had one hell of a game."Follow ...

Report: Jets don’t look at Tebow as a potential starter

We just mentioned that Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports has indicated that New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is leaning towards starting Greg McElroy at quarterback next week.

Anonymous Broncos rip Tim Tebow: ‘He’s not an NFL quarterback’

Apparently this is what Tim Tebow gets for minding his own business. The New York Jets backup quarterback has done and said all the right things this season, but that hasn’t shielded him from heavy criticism.
