Every game the Jets lose deeper into the season, the stronger the Tim Tebow vs. Mark Sanchez debates heat up. For the past three season, Jets fans are not used to being 3-5 at this time of the season and feeling low going into a bye week. I was at the game yesterday, and when the offense was still sputtering in the third quarter and Mark just threw yet another incomplete pass on third down, the boos starting raining down on the veteran QB.
Tim Tebow chants were loud. I was there. It was LOUD. It seems like every week Jets fans wonder if this is the week that the Jets make a move and start Tebow as the starter. Mark Sanchez’s days appear to be numbered, but Jets fans say that the only chance to save the season is to put the most famous “savior” of last years season, Timothy Richard Tebow.
I am convinced that as long as Rex Ryan is the head coach of the New York Jets, Mark Sanchez will remain the starter. Rex and this front office moved up in the 2009 draft to select Mark and to bench him at any time is to declare failure and that they made a mistake. I don’t think Rex’s pride could take it. Rex says that HIS is the only opinion that matters on that subject. I wonder if Woody Johnson believes that.
Offensively, the problems aren’t one man,” Ryan said Monday. “If it was one man, that would be easy to do. But it’s not on one person. Sometimes, we’re accurate with the football (and) we drop some passes. Sometimes, the pass might not have been as accurate as we wanted it to be. Then there’s times when our protection let us down.” ~ Rex Ryan
Sanchez has been far from perfect, but as 1 high level member of Jets organization told me, a lot of pieces around him are “garbage” #nyj

Starting Tim Tebow over Mark Sanchez won’t fix the Jets’ quarterback mess — only the 2013 draft can do that #nyj aol.sportingnews.com/nfl/story/2012…

SportsGeek33 To cut Rex some slack, he did the right thing by trying to bring Stanton in to push Sanchez. Then Woody sold him out with Tebow. #Jets 10/29/12 11:43 AM
markkiszla Uh-oh. Jets coach Rex Ryan just gave Mark Sanchez the “best chance to win” endorsement. Know what that means? It’s Tebow time. Soon. 10/29/12 1:32 PM
