Jets QB Disaster Continues

Jets QB Disaster Continues

The nightmare continues in New York as coach Rex Ryan today announced that there will be a QB change again for Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills. With last week's starter Greg McElroy out with an apparent concussion, Ryan has turned the reins back over to Mark Sanchez for the final game of the regular season.

A perturbed Rex Ryan addressed the media at Jets practice Thursday to make the announcement saying he was "stunned" when he learned of the news today that McElroy had suffered a concussion. He had not alerted the training staff until headaches forced him out of a team workout Thursday morning.

"I was stunned by it," Ryan said. "I admire his courage and everything else, but you have to be truthful."

After getting sacked a whopping 11 times last weekend, those outside the organization seem a bit less stunned. Nonetheless, the quarterback carousel continues and Sanchez gets an opportunity to end the Jets disappointing season on a positive note.

The continued story in all of this is Tim Tebow and Ryan's stubbornness to give the back-up QB an opportunity to start. Rumors swirled last week when a story came out saying Tebow asked out of the wildcat offensive after being passed over in favor of McElroy. Tebow himself has come out and discredited the story but openly admits his frustration and desire to start.

At this point it is surprising that they have not at least given Tebow a chance. The season is over, the Jets are not playoff bound and there is no young up and comer to take a look at now. It seems that from the beginning Ryan has been dead set against deploying Tebow as a major part of the offense. The ship is going down and Ryan may be going down with it.
