Listen, I love the kids work ethic, heart and determination.
But he's not a QB in this league.
McElroy probably isn't the future, but we know Tebow isn't.
You can't expect to contend for the playoffs or Superbowl every year having to rely on your starting QB pulling last second wins out of his ass every week.
Rex made the right decision.
If this is true, goes to show you who wanted to trade for teblow and who didn't
I hope its true
rex wants a smart, pocket passer who can complete short passes, make good decisions and not turn the ball over. this is mcelroy, not tebow, not sanchez.
rex is finally acting to save his job and try to get the lockerroom back in full. sanchez is benched and i'd be surprised he's on the team next year. the defense clearly has no faith in him and sanchez sounds like a defeated athlete. it will be harder for the jets to win games next season if sanchez is on the team.
2 games too late, we'd still be in playoff contention if McElroy played last night.

The Jets have informed their QBs that Greg McElroy is starting Sunday.
funniest thing will be if tanny gets fired, then mcelroy becomes the starter and the team starts winning next year.
but that is exactly what rex wants. Defense, run the ball and win low scoring affairs. Rex has no interest in throwing the ball all over the place and scoring points. Tebow is perfect for Rex's philosophy. Thats why I cannot understand why rex never went with him. Its seems like the perfect fit.having to rely on your starting defense and kicker
Its not so much who is going to play moving forward. But if rex really wanted to win that game last night, he should have put tebow in and he would have won it.
Hey Mc, you're gonna love the beard
Tebow was never the backup QB anyway, he was just supposed to fill the Brad Smith role. It's just now it's obvious.
I guess we will never know the true story. It just seems so odd to me that with the season on the line, he didnt pull mark last night. Anyone with a pulse could see mark was terrified to be out there and wanted no part of being a starting qb.Rex wants a conservative passing attack, but passing attack, still.
With Tebow you're running a pre-Sammy Baugh-era offense.
You may hate tebow and think he isnt an nfl qb, but he would have won that game last night if given the opportunity.
