Another day, another controversy for the New York Jets.
This time, it’s another change under center for Gang Green, with Mark Sanchez re-taking the starting job from injured Greg McElroy (and Rex Ryan once again passing over Tim Tebow).
In a season filled with ups and downs, New York has seen its fair share of downs, no doubt to the chagrin of the many onlookers who believed or hoped that Tebow would be able to lead his team to the Promised Land.
Instead, it’s just been another season ending in disappointment for Jets fans — not that they’re the only ones dealing with that feeling right about now.
For all the surprise successes of the 2012 NFL season, there has been no shortage of underperforming players and teams to spread some blame around on. Where do the Jets rank in all that disappointment? Read on.

What better way for the New York Jets to end their season than to start the quarterback who was once the starter, then got benched, then started again, then got benched again and is now preparing to be under center to close out the year. Greg McElroy is still suffering from concussion-like symptoms, which means Mark Sanchez is starting against the Buffalo Bills this weekend.
It may seem a little disingenuous using a biblical reference to describe the latest situation surrounding New York Jets’ backup quarterback Tim Tebow but what would be the point in writing these things if you couldn’t have a little fun with it? Besides, it kind of fits in a way. Especially when you consider how Tebow’s football odyssey has gone so far.CLICK HERE TO READ MORE »

Mark Sanchez will get the start at quarterback Sunday in the Jets' season finale against Buffalo.Fantasy Spin:It's pretty much by default as Greg McElroy has been ruled out with a concussion. Sanchez will probably be on a short leash and could be benched in favor of Tim Tebow if he gets off to a rough start. Sanchez actually had one of his better games of the season versus...

Bypassing Tim Tebow for the second time in as many weeks, Ryan said Mark Sanchez will start the game -- yet another blow to Tebow,...
Rex Ryan’s bravado may have finally got the best of him. The New York Jets head coach has always been extremely confident, in fact, cocky. According to those in the know, if team owner won’t make the changes Rex wants, he should fire Rex. See, Rex isn’t stupid, either. He didn’t say my way or [...]

So let me get this straight. We can talk till we are blue in the face about the future of Mark Sanchez. Talk ad nauseum about the unfair treatment of Tim Tebow. Ask a thousand times about where Michael Vick is going to be taking snaps, and dub a one game wonder in Matt Flynn the most sought after quarterback going into the 2013 offseason. But we don't have time to bring up...
