In case you missed it, the Jets hammered the final nail in their coffin with one of the worst displays of football this side of the infamous butt-fumble.
During Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Titans, starting quarterback Mark Sanchez was his usual dismal self. Check that -- he was worse.
Sanchez completed just 13 passes for 131 yards, tossed four ridiculously bad interceptions and mathematically eliminated the Jets from playoff contention with a fumble on the game's final play.
All that added up to a miserable 32.6 passer rating, which was outdone by his high-profile backup.
Predetermined to enter the game on the Jets' third series, Tim Tebow was under center for a handful of plays, attempting one pass (incomplete) and rushing three times for 15 yards. Yet, if you could believe it, Tebow technically finished with a higher rating than Sanchez -- by a whole seven points.
The proof is in the pudding (in this case, the following image).

AROUND THE WEB
With all the media scrutiny surrounding Tim Tebow throughout his NFL career, sometimes it’s hard to separate Tebow the person from Tebow the headline. Combine the oversaturation of all things Tebow with his overly positive persona, and it can be easy to forget Tebow’s feelings in this season’s Jets quarterback controversy.
Tebow feels misled by the Jets, according to Mike Freeman...
Rex Ryan’s body language as the seconds ticked off the New York Jets’ last gasp for a playoff shot said it all.

The New York Jets' quarterback position continued to draw attention Wednesday. Coach Rex Ryan did not directly address questions about Tim Tebow's future with the team and Mark Sanchez, benched as the starter this week in favor of Greg McElroy, received death threats on Twitter that later were deleted by the sender. According to reports, Tebow will asked for a trade or...

Is it time to play Tim Tebow, or is Greg McElroy the answer? One could only hope that Rex Ryan and the 6-8 New York Jets are ready to make a quarterback change after last nights devastating 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans that took the Jets out of playoff contention. The Titans intercepted four passes by struggling Jets QB Mark Sanchez – winning for the first time in [...]
As if getting skipped over in favor of Greg McElroy for the Jets’ quarterback job wasn’t bad enough, US Weekly is reporting that Tim Tebow has split from girlfriend Camilla Belle. The two were first seen together at a bowling outing in October “grabbing kisses and holding hands” — Tebow is a registered virgin and saving himself for marriage, so that was probably the extent...

Mark Sanchez blew the second chance Rex Ryan gave him. Now, it's Greg McElroy's turn to be the New York Jets' starting quarterback.
And, Tim Tebow? Well, he was leapfrogged by the third-stringer, fueling speculation that the team has little confidence in him as a quarterback.
