Found December 13, 2012 on AFC East Daily:
Tim Tebow hasn't been healthy enough to see the field for a month, yet New York Jets coach Rex Ryan insists Tebow remains the No. 2 quarterback. Meanwhile, Greg McElroy, Gang Green's third-stringer, is the only quarterback not named Mark Sanchez to run New York's offense in a regular season game this year. The healthy and capable McElroy replaced Sanchez in the second half of New York's win over the Arizona Cardinals a couple weeks ago.Thursday, Ryan was dancing around an answer as to why Tebow at No. 2 is the best scenario, especially since Ryan admitted Tebow wouldn't be running the Wildcat anymore. Heck, Tebow won't even be in as the personal punt protector, which has been his biggest role thus far. It has to be one of two things, or both: the heavy hand of owner Woody Johnson's economical interests and Ryan's sentimental connection with Tebow.Ryan is a smart enough football guy to understand that the only benefit to having Tebow as the backup is b...

5 Replacements for Rex Ryan, Jets

The New York Jets may be on their way to making a playoff push but don’t be fooled. This season is by far the most frustrating and most disappointing of Rex Ryan’s tenure as Head Coach. After thirteen weeks of nailbiters and fumbles, it is clear New York is in need of a coaching change (to say the least). Woody Johnson would do his team a favor by firing Ryan. A lot has changed...

New York Jets coach Rex Ryan flip-flopped on Tim Tebow's possible role in Monday night's game against the Tennessee Titans.

Tebow won't run wildcat for Jets

Tim Tebow's days of running the New York Jets' wildcat-style offense appear over for now. Rex Ryan said Thursday that the backup quarterback will be active Monday night at Tennessee, but will likely not run the wildcat or participate as the punt protector on special teams. Tebow has not played in the Jets' last three games while dealing with two broken ribs, sustained...

Jets focusing on struggling Titans, not playoffs

Rex Ryan is taking nothing for granted, not the way this season has gone for the New York Jets. The Jets still have hope that a favorable schedule will give them a chance at the playoffs even after a 3-6 start. Ryan, though, is taking it one game at a time, beginning with the woeful Tennessee Titans on Monday night. ''I know we have three games left in the regular season...

The Jets need change.. even with a chance still to make the playoffs

The New York Jets need change, and they need it now.  —  Rex Ryan can talk as much as he wants about change, but it doesn’t mean jack if  his team can’t back his words up, right now the Jets are 6-7.     While Yahoo! Sports.com may report that  New York still has a chance, it’s not likely to happen, [...]

Sanchez, Jets see 'comfort level' with Edwards

Braylon Edwards was pretty good in 2010, and so was Mark Sanchez. The two have pretty much stunk since. Edwards and Sanchez, who connected on 62 passes, eight touchdowns and more than 40 first downs in the New York Jets' 2010 campaign, were reunited this week after an odd sequence of events."We have a good chemistry together," Sanchez said Tuesday, via the Star-Ledger...

Jets confident Braylon Edwards will play Monday

After the Seattle Seahawks released wide receiver Braylon Edwards, head coach Pete Carroll said they believed he wouldn’t be able to play for three weeks because of a hamstring injury.
