Mark Sanchez had his moments - good and bad - for the Jets. Tim Tebow, too. But some of the Jets' biggest flaws were on full display in their 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans. They couldn't run the ball, the defense couldn't stop the run and Tebow still isn't running on the field much. Rex Ryan says the Jets need to get their running game going for the offense to start clicking. The defense was also embarrassed, allowing Arian Foster to gash them for 152 yards. New York's receiving corps is so thin, even free agent Terrell Owens tweeted at the Jets to call his agent to sign him. Ryan says you ''never say never,'' but it appears the Jets are sticking with their current crew of receivers.

Tim Tebow is a lot of things. He is a devout Christian. He is a Heisman Trophy winner.
