    9:32AM EST

    Again, Rex solicited opinions from people in organization. Woody Johnson preferred McElroy, but he never gave directive. It was Rex's call

    9:12AM EST

  • Manish Mehta

    Rex Ryan never seriously considered starting Tim Tebow this week vs Jaguars. #nyj

    9:05AM EST

  • Manish Mehta

    I've been told Mark Sanchez will, indeed, have shorter leash this week vs Jaguars. #NYJ confident Greg McElroy can come in relief if need be

    I admit I have no clue what McElroy is or isn't. We haven't seen enough of him. in the NFL. Guy won in college. He's smart. Give him a shot.

    8:47AM EST

  • Brian Costello

    As I wrote this morning, I don't buy the idea that you lose Sanchez forever if you bench him this week. Plenty of QBs have been rebounded.

    8:37AM EST

  • Brian Costello

    Jets fans always find the silver lining RT @Jetschamps: on the bright side, this guarantees more losses and a higher draft pick

    8:36AM EST

  • Brian Costello

    I would have gone with McElroy. Let's see what he can do. I know what #6 can do.

    8:35AM EST

  • Manish Mehta

    Despite his flaws, Mark Sanchez is absolutely best QB on Jets roster. Greg McElroy has a chance to be quality No. 2 QB in this league. #nyj

    8:34AM EST

  • Brian Costello

    Wait till the Tebow fans in Jacksonville boo Mark.

    8:32AM EST

  • Brian Costello

    8:32AM EST

    I'm told fact that Jets play next 2 games on road did play a (minor) role in decision. Hard to start Sanchez in front of home fans this wk
