New York Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum says he hasn’t been pressured by ownership to start quarterback Tim Tebow over Mark Sanchez..
“Rex, (owner) Woody (Johnson) and myself, we talk all the time,” said Tannenbaum, per the Newark Star-Ledger. “We have a great relationship and we have a good, robust debate about what’s best for the team, but playing time is always going to be driven by Rex.
“We’ll talk to (owner) Woody (Johnson) about what we’re going to do … but Rex is in charge of who plays.”
Tannenbaum says he doesn’t regret trading for tebow.
“If we didn’t want (Tebow), we wouldn’t have traded for him,” Tannenbaum said. “Rex, Woody and I felt good about that transaction. Tim hasn’t had a lot of opportunities … but we’ll see how the next few games play out.”
Tannenbaum is right, if they didn’t want Tebow they wouldn’t have traded for him. But they also didn’t trade for him for him to be a decoy. He’ll get his shot at being the Jets’ starter.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Start Tim Tebow.
Not in Wildcat or Razorback or the slot. At quarterback.
Not in a couple of weeks. Now.
Not because of God or faith or any intangibles attributed to him. Not for any reason except the New York Jets are drowning and need a kick in the butt. This is not about belief at all. This is about doubt -- doubt about whether the Mark Sanchez who helped the Jets to back-to...
Mark Sanchez may lose his starting role for the Jets soon, and it's not just because he isn't putting up good numbers. New York is having a very tough time selling tickets to its Monday Night Football game against the undefeated Houston Texans, as 12,000 seats were still unsold as of Friday, according to Pro Football Talk. MetLife Stadium holds around 83,000 people, meaning...
You’ve certainly heard the rumors that the Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez is on the hot seat.
With that comes the prediction that started in the off-season that Tim Tebow will overthrow the USC-bred signal caller and all will be well in the land.
If that happens things for the Jets could in fact get worse. The last time that I checked, the Jets take the field with 11 players at...
Rob Carpenter: Former New York Jet
If you’re a New York Jets fan, you probably have a lot of concerns right now. Injuries have sidelined Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes for the season, many fans and media are calling for Tebow to start, Mike Tannenbaum’s job may be on the line, and the list goes on and on. I recently spoke with former New York Jets wide receiver, Rob Carpenter...
While the Jets refuse to make a switch at quarterback, choosing to stick with Mark Sanchez, they’re going to do what they can to get his backup on the field.
During FOX’s NFL Sunday pregame show, league insider Jay Glazer reported the Jets will use Tim Tebow “a lot more” on Monday Night Football versus the Texans.
Glazer noted that Tebow was given more practice reps this...
The New York Jets may make a change for change’s sake. It is one of the worst thing that an NFL team can do in this day and age. They panic and make a rash decision based on the poor play of one player or on the desires of the fans. Generally speaking, the say when a coach or general manager listens to the fans, he will soon be sitting with them.
But what if it is the owner making...
Sing it with me New York Jets fans Oh eee oh, Tee Bow. Oh eee oh, Tee Bow. The chant NFL Network talking heads Michael Irvin and Deion Sanders used during Tim Tebows rise to stardom (sort of) last year is poised to make its return soon. With the Jets offense in shambles, the only way to save the season may be to turn to the former Florida Gator. It is going to have to...
Asked by the NY Post whether he felt Tim Tebow had put pressure on NY Jets incumbent quarterback Mark Sanchez, former Jet offensive linemen and current ESPN analyst Damien Woody said, perhaps holding...

According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that the New York Jets plan on using Tim Tebow more on Monday night against the Texans.
Glazer also says that Tebow got more practice time this past week . I wonder how much of that time was spent under center. Mark Sanchez has to be on thin ice right now.
Each week Darren looks back at the weekend that was in the National Football League. These are the three things that most significantly stuck out during Week 4.
The Jets Downfall?
The Jets are a complete mess but I am going to sit here and tell you that Tim Tebow is not the answer at this point. Bringing in Tim Tebow at any point other than training camp does nothing but turn the...
Before their Monday Night Football (October 8) match-up against the Houston Texans, the New York Jets are preparing for the back-up plan of replacing current starting quarterback Mark Sanchez for back-up QB Tim Tebow.Although a report came out last week saying that the majority of the New York Jets players "supporting" Sanchez, most are proclaiming their support for...
