Found December 07, 2012 on Tireball.com:
The New York Jets will visit the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14. Scheduled for a 1 p.m. EST kickoff this game will be aired on CBS where available. Mark Sanchez will start for the Jets, a week after he was benched for third-string quarterback Greg McElroy. McElroy led the Jets to a 7-6 win against Arizona but will again be the third string option this week should Tim Tebow’s ribs be healthy. The Jets are a mess on both sides of the ball as their once great defense has showed signs of aging and injuries this season falling to 22nd in the league in points allowed. Jacksonville named Chad Henne the starter a few weeks ago. Henne has had a couple of good games and a stinker last week. The Jaguars remain without Maurice Jones Drew and their defense is allowing 28.5 points per game. Despite all the points these teams give up its hard to expect a lot of scoring because of how bad their offenses are. So whats the spread in the Jets and Jaguars game? Most places have the Jets favored in this one by 3 points. The over/under is listed at 38.5 points.

Preview: Jets (5-7) @ Jaguars (2-10)

This week the Jets travel to Tim Tebow's hometown to play the Jaguars, unfortunately for the legion of Tebow supporters who undoubtedly wanted to line up to watch him play quarterback, equally unfortunate for many Jet fans that Greg McElroy won't be getting the start either, as you know, since it's all that anyone has talked about the entire week, Mark Sanchez will remain...

Only in New York? Greg McElroy declared inactive for Jets after leading them to victory in week 13

Per multiple sources including Jason LaCanfora on twitter Tim Tebow is active today for the Jets. Tebow has been the second man on the Jets depth chart all year; so, maybe it was a ‘can’t lose your spot due to injury’ piece; maybe Rex Ryan thinks he’s their best backup quarterback; or maybe it was a marketing ploy by Woody Johnson and/or NFL higherups; either way, McElroy...

Jets Wanted Chad Henne, Not Tim Tebow, to Compete With Mark Sanchez for Quarterback Job

The quarterback controversy in New York appears to have no end in sight. And another wrinkle just made it even more complicated. Mark Sanchez is keeping his starting job, for now. But after being benched for third-stringer Greg McElroy last week, and chants for Tim Tebow continuing to fill the stands at MetLife Stadium, Sanchez may not have that job for very long. Now, as the Jets...

Pity the New York Jets: Reid latest with swipe
