As reported by the New York Daily News, the Jets are prepared to make a change at the quarterback position for next Sunday’s game at home against the San Diego Chargers.

By now, its almost a moot point with the Jets out of the playoff picture. Still, assuming this report is true, it all but seals Sanchez’s fate  in New York. Woody Johnson may have to eat that $8 million dollar check owed to Sanchez after the season, which could end up costing Mike Tannenbaum his job.

This was Sanchez’s last chance to prove that he can still win games with the Jets and get them to 9-7. Scoring 10 points against a bad Titans defense is no way to reclaim your starting job.

Plus, starting Sanchez would only lead to locker room dissension, which has evidently already begun.


Now, the question turns to who the Jets should start between Tebow and McElroy. McElroy makes more logical sense, having already won the game against the Cardinals and is a better passer, but Rex would be a bit contradictory if he leapfrogged the backup quarterback in Tim Tebow for no concrete reason.

Greg McElroy give the Jets a better chance to win, but starting Tebow would at least prove to the fanbase how inept of a thrower he is and can give the Jets an excuse to let him go after the season.
