NEW YORK (AP) — Mark Sanchez blew the second chance Rex Ryan gave him. Now, it’s Greg McElroy’s chance to be the New York Jets’ starting quarterback.And, Tim Tebow? Well, he was leapfrogged by the third-stringer, fueling speculation that the team has little confidence in him as a quarterback…Ryan said after the loss that he wasn’t ready to decide who would start against the Chargers, but chose McElroy over Sanchez and Tebow after talking with his staff and others in the organization Tuesday. I’m under the impression that not only is Rex Ryan anticipating the Mayan Calendar to be accurate – he is trying to become the catalyst behind Armageddon. Listen, we all accept that Tim Tebow is in fact a decendant of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, making him the closest thing to a God we have on this planet right now. Well, him and whoever is running North Korea. I’m pretty sure that’s a long line of saints or wizards or something like that. But back to the point. The Jets brought in Tebow in the offseason after Peyton Manning took his talents to Denver. A move that they presented to the public under the guise that there would be a two quarterback system. Or, at the very least, competition to push Mark Sanchez. Yet here we are. Not even 24-hours after yet another humiliating display on national television and Greg McElroy has been named the Week 16 starting quarterback of the New York Jets. In what is probably just another move to ensure that green and white dominates the back pages. Seriously is there an organization less concerned with winning that the Jets? In all of sports I’m talking. Like the Houston Astros put forth a more concentrated effort into winning than the Jets. What kind of team trades for a quarterback and converts him to punt protector? The Jets trust Tebow to play quarterback less than I would trust Casey Anthony to babysit. This trade may have ultimately ended the careers of both Sanchez and Tebow in the long run. You can have your opinions about what kind of careers these two were destined from on your own time. That’s not my point. My point is whatever chance either of these two had at anything resembling a successful pro career is likely over. Hope you enjoyed the free publicity, Rex. You’re the NFL’s punchline.
