Just when New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez received a vote of confidence from his head coach, the team's owner is reportedly pushing for a change, according to an ESPNNewYork.com report. Johnson could reportedly "push" Rex Ryan and Mike Tannenbaum to start backup quarterback Tim Tebow, who came off the bench to lead the Denver Broncos to the playoffs last season. "Two people who know Johnson, and know how he runs his football operation, believe he will push his football people to start Tebow," the report said Tuesday. Johnson has made no secret of his love for the left-handed Tebow, who comes in on specific plays. The involved Johnson also pushed the team to bring in Brett Favre before the 2008 season. The Jets are in a free-fall after losing cornerback Darrelle Revis and, likely, wide receiver Santonio Holmes, for the season. Sanchez struggled mightily in Sunday's 34-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, when he completed just 13 of 29 passes for 103 yards and threw an interception. He also lost a fumble. "I'm not ready to make a quarterback change," Ryan said after the game. "We have to get better play at quarterback. We have to get better at a lot of things. You look at yourself first, and there are things that clearly we all need to do."
