With Mark Sanchez struggling greatly, the New York Jets surpassed Tim Tebow in favor of Greg McElroy against the San Diego Chargers on Sunday. Tebow was still active, but the Jets lost 27-17, with many still wondering why he has yet to get a chance. He was brought into town to be used in Wildcat packages to take advantage of his unique skill set as well as serve as the backup quarterback. According to ESPN, Tebow asked the coaching staff not to use him in any of these packages in the game against the Chargers. New York Jets backup quarterback Tim Tebow was so frustrated when the starting job was conferred upon Greg McElroy early last week that he told the coaches he didn’t want to be used in any Wildcat packages Sunday against the San Diego Chargers, multiple Jets sources told ESPNNewYork.com. Tebow was active, but did not play in the 27-17 loss at MetLife Stadium. In Tebow’s absence, wide receiver Jeremy Kerley – a former high school quarterback — ran the plays for the first time all season. The Wildcat has been Tebow’s package, and was the reason Jets coach Rex Ryan and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano said he was brought to New York. This whole situation is getting worse by the moment, and both sides need a change. It’s beyond reason why such a dysfunctional Jets team hasn’t given Tebow much of a chance, in favor of the underwhelming Sanchez and unproven McElroy. To see the Jets using Jeremy Kurley in the Wildcat with Tebow on the sideline is bizarre, to say the least.
