What a joke, not only with the Tebow disaster, but the fact that this team has more leaks than a dam in Denmark. The Jets have done a lot of dumb things in their history, but I think this is by far the most embarrassing period in their entire existence.
If the Post article is accurate Rex has been exposed as a fraud. Any coach worth his salt does not give 2 sh!ts worrying about what fans/players will think regarding necessary personnel moves.
"IF the NY Post was accurate"
It would mark the first time since acquired by Newscorp

I don't like Tebow but to suggest that that guy doesn't bust his absolute ass in practice blows my mind, which is how this article comes across.
If they didn't know he could throw simply from tape then these guys all need exiled from the league.
You take Tebow's size and mobility, McElroy's head, and Sanchez's arm and you have an NFL QB.

Tebow and the dopey FL offense won the national championship in 2008. In 2009 going 13-1 Tebow in the bowl game went 31 for 35 for 482 yards and 533 total yards. Still BCS records. Look it up.
SG3, U R clueless with your hate just to hate. Shame to see people who are dicks and don't know it.

2) Then why is there such a thing as locker room chemistry; why is it so respected; why is it so misunderstood?
Vinny, don't start a pissing match. Grab your wife if you want to play "He Said, She Said".
BTW that was GREAT blocking of the 46 on the Johnson run; the center walled off both Scott and Bo. I was surprised Gruden didn't mention the playoff game agaisnt Jets when Nap Kaufman ran a 70 yarder (similar to Hearst) against Herm's Jets in the 2001 WC game
Here's the article
Here's MY biggest issue with this piece...
OK...just so I have this straight.A source said the Jets were shocked at how poor Tebow played in practice soon after he arrived. As Tebow struggled, McElroy improved and eventually gained the coaching staff’s backing. So when Ryan decided to give Sanchez the hook this week, his trust was in McElroy.
There was also the “Tebowmania” factor. One source described the organization as “frozen with fear” that Tebow would actually excel, creating a quarterback controversy that would wreck Sanchez’s psyche. Tebow wound up being more effective as the personal protector on the punt team than as an offensive player.
1. The Jets were shocked at how poorly Tebow practiced.
2. McElroy improved and gained confidence from the coaching staff.
3. The Jets were "afraid" Tebow would "excel".
4. This, in turn, would hurt Sanchez's psyche?
So, Tebow practices poorly, yet the Jets are afraid that he'll somehow excel (because we all know when you practice poorly, you'll excel on the field), which will bruise the fragile ego of our esteemed fragile QB, who did more to hurt himself than any QB I've seen in recent memory, all the while keeping the one fking guy who was practicing well enough to not only help win the Arizona game, but gain respect from the coaching staff, on the bench, or inactive.
And some people wonder why this organization is a laughing stock. Larry David couldn't write funnier material.
This team is a joke from top to bottom.
+1 That was great blocking, though I thought it was a pretty foolish play call by us for just that reason since you knew they were gonna run. Rex just has too much faith in mediocre-at-best talent.
I disagree with you about Scott though, the way I saw it and rewatched it, Scott picked the 4 hole and was wrong.
I could see the disbelief in his body language when he shifted left and no one was in the backfield.
It said, "I'm old, slow, and over the hill." Followed by "touchdown."
