NFL Injury Report:
Now that the New York Jets have named Greg McElroy as their
starting quarterback for Sunday’s matchup against the San Diego Chargers over
Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, there will surely be a few offseason shakeups as a
result. One of these is expected to come in the form of Tebow requesting to be
traded or released following if McElroy starts the two remaining games, reports
Manish Mehta of The New York Daily News.
Next domino in Jets QB situation: Tim Tebow will request to be traded/released after season assuming McElroy starts last 2 games, per source
— Manish Mehta(@MMehtaNYDN) December 19, 2012
The Jets acquired Tebow from the Denver Broncos last
offseason. When he was recruited to join New York over the Jacksonville
Jaguars, Tebow now believes he was misled regarding what his role with the team
would be. It was assumed that he would see regular snaps in the wildcat or
other packages developed to suit his strengths.
Instead, Tebow has thrown just eight passes and rushed 32
times for a total of 141 yards and no touchdowns. Now, the Jets are bypassing
him on the depth chart by deciding to start McElroy against the Chargers.
It seems like the Tebow era has ended in New York before it
ever really began.

Written By Clifford, Santa Monica, In the 47 years that I’ve been watching professional sports I’ve never seen more fuss made over an athlete who was less talented than Timothy Richard Tebow. To me, he’s the NFL’s answer to former NBA stiff Jon Koncak–a reserve center chosen by the Atlanta Hawks with the fifth pick in the 1985 draft. As I recall, Koncak was rewarded...
According to Mike Freeman of CBS Sports, quarterback Tim Tebow feels misled by the New York Jets, since when he was acquired in the offseason he was told that he would have a shot to start if Mark Sanchez was either benched or went down with an injury.
The reason Tebow hasn’t gotten a chance to start is because he’s been so bad in practice and the Jets clearly realize now that...
After last night’s report that the Jets will get rid of Tim Tebow, it looks like local stores aren’t wasting time in trying to get rid of his jersey.

Since his tenure with...

There has been a lot of speculation regarding the future of quarterbacks Tim Tebow, Michael Vick, Alex Smith and Mark Sanchez.
Two of which are currently on the New York Jets’ roster, one of those two most likely won’t be there in 2013 and the other two have been discussed as possible fits.
No matter how you look at it, it doesn’t look like much will change moving forward...
Tim Tebow is careful to always say the right thing publicly, but privately, it seems he’s not happy with the New York Jets’ decision to sit him all year.
Tebow will ask to be traded or released if Greg McElroy starts the last two games of the season, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Tebow has received just 76 offensive snaps all season after bringing the...
Mark EvansAfter head coach Rex Ryan has decided to go with Greg McElroy as his starting quarterback in the final game of the season, many were scratching their head as to why Tim Tebow was not given a shot. He was brought into town to be the backup quarterback, but has yet to get a chance.
Tebow has spent the entire season as nothing more than much of a gimmick, a year after he was...
Greg McElroy is the starting quarterback for the New York Jets -- for now. Less than a day after Mark Sanchez threw four interceptions and mishandled a critical snap at the end of the Jets' demoralizing 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, Jets coach Rex Ryan handed over signal-calling duties to McElroy. Tim Tebow had been the No. 2 quarterback on the depth chart pretty much the...
