Coach Rex Ryan reportedly "hedged a bit" Thursday when asked whether the Jets are holding a quarterback competition.
"I don't want to speculate on this, that or whatever," he said. "Mark Sanchez is our starting quarterback." Ryan also expressed confidence in the Jets' two-QB system. "They say if you have two quarterbacks, you have no quarterbacks," said Ryan. "Tell that to the San Francisco 49ers when they had Steve Young and Joe Montana. I think they won a few games, I'm not real sure." We expect to see Tebow in the starting lineup no later than the Jets' Week 9 bye.
And the difference in passer ratings isn't statistically significant anyway, especially not with their respective number of attempts. Tebow has less than a season's worth of attempts.
It would be similar as trying to compare Cam Newton's 2011 passer rating of 84.5 to Eli Manning's career passer rating of 82.1
1) The difference between an 84 and an 82 is insignificant
2) Newton's rating is working with far fewer attempts
As a numbers person, people that attempt to use them without understanding what's behind them drive me up a wall.
Nobody thinks Tebow can play QB except for his cult following.
I don't understand how anyone could watch the game and come away thinking this could play the position. He could barely do it in college running the triple option/spread/whatever gimmick offense that was. The kid is horrendous. End of discussion.
Ronnie Brown had a pretty good QBR too. I know LT threw like 7 tds in 11 attempts. Tebow isn't bad. He's just not a QB.
and i didnt make any claim, genius. i said tebow has a better career QB rating, thats a fact. if that bothers you im sorry but you should deal with reality at some point. i never said tebow is a better passer. but what i WILL say is that if sanchez again fails to get the job done and play better than he has in the past, he needs to be benched ASAP. then its tebows job to lose. its that simple.
you sanchez fanatics want marky mark in there no matter what. sorry, the nfl doesnt work that way. we now have a QB behind him that can actually walk (unlike brunell). and mark even got benched for that guy. yet he's still untouchable to you fanatics. he got benched for brunell. mark brunell...
I forgot to put Tebow and Sanchez's passer ratings in my last post.
It's 75.1 vs 73.2
You fail to address poster's points and then you bring up tangents that don't make sense.
Why don't you simply defend your original post?
Calling 14 games a "career" is stupid. Everyone knows that. Especially when you talk about "career QB rating" of 14 games at 75, compared to Sanchez' 73.
Those 2 rating points are HUGE!!!
The worst thing for the Jets and the near future of the Jets franchise is Tebow being named the starting QB of the Jets at any point this season. That's pretty much undeniable.
Hahahahahaaaaaa--love this stat line:
2/8, 69 yards, 1 TD, 0 INT = 102.6 rating (what a joke)
In 14 career regular season starts, Tebow only had THREE games where he completed over 50% of his passes.
Awful thrower of the football.
