lol, even the Jets hate Tebow. - mdrake34 - 11-14-2012 10:42 AM
Also, this is why I want McClure to shut the fuck up, when there is tension in locker rooms you lose, period.
Coach Rex Ryan has stuck with Mark Sanchez as his starting quarterback, despite the New York Jets' team's 3-6 record, saying that Sanchez gives his team the best chance to win. According to a report, there apparently is no argument from his locker room, with more than 12 players believing Tim Tebow is not very good.
Both offensive and defensive players, who remained anonymous, told the New York Daily News that they hadn't noticed improvement in Tebow's quarterback skills since he joined the Jets from the Broncos this past March.

If Rex Ryan turns to Tim Tebow, he'll lose the Jets' locker room, writes Rich Cimini. Story
"He's terrible," a defensive starter told the Daily News.
Sanchez remains the Jets' starting quarterback as coach Ryan picks up the pieces from the team's worst stretch of football since 2007, including last weekend's 28-7 loss to Seattle.
Ryan has repeatedly backed Sanchez, including this week when he responded defiantly Monday when asked if he would bench Sanchez in favor of Tebow, claiming that his job security will not factor into who starts at quarterback.
"If that day ever happens, then it happens," Ryan said. "But with me, I'm never going to waver. I'm not going to make a decision one way or the other in order to save my job. I'm trying to win games."
Jets players told the Daily News that they agree that Sanchez should remain the starter. They take that stance despite the fact that Sanchez has an NFL-worst 52 percent completion percentage and has been intercepted in the red zone four times, also worst in the league.
A Jets official told the newspaper that the options Sanchez has to throw to in the passing game is "garbage," a big factor in the quarterback's poor statistics.
"I've seen better receiving corps in college than we have on our team," another Jets source told the newspaper.
Of his preference for keeping Sanchez in the starter's role, one player, speaking anonymously, told ESPNNewYork.com: "There's no other viable option."
Sanchez, however, struggled in his meeting against the Seahawks and Pete Carroll, his former coach at USC, last Sunday. Sanchez threw a costly interception at the goal line in the first half, then fumbled at the Seattle 32 on a blitz from Richard Sherman, and Seattle's Jason Jones recovered in the fourth quarter. He finished 9 of 22 for 124 yards.
Tebow ran four times for 14 yards, and was 3-of-3 passing for 8 yards. But Tebow was of no help to the offense.
"I don't know how many more losses you can spot somebody before you think can make the playoffs," Ryan said after the game. "It's about a two percent chance at making the playoffs with the record we have and we are going to take that shot."
The Jets finished with just 185 total yards and only 72 in the second half vs. Seattle, the second time this season the Jets were held under 200 yards of offense.
Not all Jets sources polled by the newspaper criticized Tebow, however.
"He's a winner," one team source told the newspaper. "If he stays on the field long enough, usually good things happen."
That source, however, made it clear that, although he wanted Tebow to get more playing time, Sanchez shouldn't lose his starting job.
The Jets have said they acquired Tebow to run their Wildcat package, which has fizzled and been a non-factor this season.
When asked if the Jets could turn their season around if the team changed the offense to a zone-read system, tailoring the attack to Tebow's strengths, the players didn't think it would work.
"We can't win running that s---," one player told the newspaper.

The Jets Front Office rammed Tebow down the coaching staff's throat, they wanted nothing to do with the guy. Rex and all of his teammates get to see Tebow in practice and they know he sucks. It's more of Rex realizing that instead of him backing Sanchez. He knows Tebow isn't a better option.

Look at his numbers last year vs Sanchez this year.
Tebow - 7-4 46.5% 1729 12-6 72.9
Sanchez 3-6 52% 1860 10-9 70.4
So Tebow had a bad completion percentage but he did not turn the ball over and he won games. Also look at the 6tds on the ground. Is he perfect no, does he find ways to win? Yes. For a team that needs to find ways to win before their season is toast Tebow is the man.

But it looks like the team would mutiny if they did. At this point, Ryan has to ride out on Sanchez and hope the Chiefs will hire him.

Exactly. Tebow gives the Jets a better chance to win than Sanchez. But nobody on the Jets wanted Tebow there except for their stupid owner Woody Johnson who could see nothing but dollar signs. That's why there would be a locker room meltdown if Tebow became the starter.

I think it boils down to this. Backing Tebow basically is admitting that you suck, and your team couldn't win without him. That team has no character in their locker room, so rather than look to blame themselves, they are going to point fingers, and Tebow is the easy target.
Sanchez has played horribly, and Tebow would not be a worse option.

The funny thing is that Tebow would be great for that locker room. The Denver team felt the same way then he went out there and won games for them and they rallied behind him. If he came in and led them to victory, guess what would happen? They would rally behind him too. Sexy Rexy has no control over that team. He needs to go. Bring back Rich Kotite!

I kinda feel bad for Tebow but then I remember that he is the retard that chose to go to NY instead of Jacksonville.

He had a choice? I thought he was traded?

Tebow was a winner in high school, at FL and in the pros and there are Ga fans who hate him because they could never beat him. Plus there is the faction who hate him because he is religious and doesn't bang every trophy ho who throws herself at him.
However he is a winner who would play any position to help his team.
