Even though the New York Jets are currently sitting at 3-6, it looks like no one within the organization believes in Tim Tebow as a possible replacement for Mark Sanchez.. This is one of the reasons he’s still backing up Sanchez..
“He’s terrible,” a Jets defensive starter told the New York Daily News.
Jets left guard Matt Slauson says Sanchez is far and above better than Tebow.
“It’s not even close,” Slauson said. “All the other quarterbacks know it. I have all the confidence in Mark. We don’t really have a choice.”
Slauson doesn’t even look at Tebow as a quarterback.
“We have Greg . . . and we have an athlete,” Slauson said.
People within the Jets’ organization don’t believe Tebow can turn things around.
“Hell, no!” a starter said. “You got to keep defenses honest. You just can’t line up in the Wildcat all the time. That won’t work.”
Some people don’t believe what Tebow did with the Broncos last season can be done again.
“Now we’re depending on miracles?”

Per a report from CNN’s Sports Illustrated, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks the player(s) who called Tim Tebow “terrible” are “a cowardly thing.” Ryans comments are in response to an earlier report of over a dozen Jets players and members of the organization anonymously criticizing Tebow.

(Eds: Corrects Keller's first name to Dustin in seventh paragraph. With AP Photos.) By JIM LITKE AP Sports Columnist Jets coach Rex Ryan is so competitive that he'd play Satan at quarterback if he was convinced the move would help his team win.

On any other team, with any other backup waiting in the wings, there...
Pete Carroll knows a little about the media pouncing on their prey. He took every attack the Boston media threw at him while he was head coach of the New England Patriots. After his dismissal from New England, he went back to sunny Southern California and built a powerhouse USC program that turned him into an icon in those parts. Carroll also knows young quarterbacks and Mark Sanchez...

Neither the Jets nor the Rams have been impressive of late. It’s been over a month since either team has earned a win.

Here are my three bold predictions for the game.1. The Jets’ will help St. Louis get an easy win.On the stat...
