Start Him for the Rest of the Season, Period.
Start Him for another few games (2+ at least) see how he does. Replace only if horrible.
Start him ONE more game, sink or swim. Replace if we lose or he plays badly.
Bench Him, Start Tebow Going Forward (McElroy if Tebow Fails)
Bench Him, Start McElroy Goign Forward (Tebow if McElroy Fails)
Agreement is a beautiful thing
Bottom line it worked for Sanchez in 2010, and this years Sanchez would put up good numbers if these guys were playing.
So stop it with Sanchez needing all pro's in every position, as is the case these guys were not even close to top NFL skill players.
Someone should make a gif of the cumberland play. Watched it a few times myself and should definately have been caught. Not a great pass, but Cumberland had position and should have snagged it out of the air.
Hard to love Sanchez but it's crystal clear that he is the best QB on the roster. The Jets are 2 and 3 and have faced some very good defensive teams with less then a full deck. 2 and 3 isn't out of contention in this league particularly when 2 of your wins are in confrence.
Way to much panic on this board right now. The team looked over all decent last night which in this NFL puts you in contention for a playoff spot.
The coaching staff has to stabalize things and the Jets have to win a couple of close winable games to turn this around. It can be turned around but not by dumping your best option at QB.
If we had a better option at QB have at it, I don't believe we do and putting less talent on the field unless the guy is a complete locker room cancer is never a good way to win.
The latter half of the bold section is pure speculation. None of the players you mentioned were going to get more open than Holmes, Schilens and Cromartie were on the three sure TDs this year that Sanchez left on the field with poor throws.
I'll give you that those guys would probably create more opportunities for completions, but that doesn't make Sanchez a more accurate QB.
They have to stick with Sanchez. He's the best QB on the team and gives them the best chance to win.
That said, I think the way they're running the offense, shuttling in the Tebow package in and out, is really, really, really stupid.
Nobody can get into a rhythm.
If they insist on using both QBs, at least give Tebow a full series -- I think that will help both guys.
But whatever they're doing now has to change because it's clearly not working. I have no idea why they took Tebow out after he had the run to the 3 yardline. Let him finish it.
And on the other hand, stop making Sanchez sprint in and out of the huddle.
It's aggravating to watch I can't imagine how aggravating it is for 6.
I could have sworn I read somewhere before the game last night that that was what the CS was planning to do. But sure enough, everytime he came in for a play, he was right back out.
Frankly, giving Tebow a full series or two is the best way to figure this QB situation out. Start Sanchez, and if the offense is struggling, give Tebow a series to see what he can do. No substitutions, no dual QBs, just Tebow and the spread option. It's the best way to figure out what he can actually bring to the table and how well he can move the ball compared to Sanchez. If Tebow is playing well, go with it until it fails. Eventually you'll have enough body of work to make a decision of whether or not to start Tebow at all, rather than simply declaring "Tebow's starting" and hoping he doesn't suck.
And I'm sure Tebow is better suited to face certain teams... so use him if it's working. And let him throw the ball more. It will soften up the D.
If Tebow can't get anything going, stick with Sanchez and don't fuk with him by pulling him out in the middle of a drive. It's just so damn stupid and I can't understand why the coaches haven't picked up on this.
I do like who people make excuses for Sanchez then say Tebow is a bad QB as well. He had success in Denver for the most part and did not have more then Sanchez. Lloyd left and wasn't that good to start. Decker and Thomas did not exactly have a career of experience and Royal wasn't much help either. Ok he had a good RB but no OL or TE. If anything I'd say put Tebow in right now and leave Sanchez's QBR at 66.6 and call it Tebows lucky number.
