Here's the thing though. Would Washington trade him though? RG3's running of the option and the pistol offence has caused him to be more susceptible to injury or missing the odd game. They might need a backup in case. There's 2 games he might have missed but didn't and there was the one this weekend he did miss. Hope it isn't a long term necessity, but until RG3 expands his arsenal, the danger aspect of his playstyle may warrant having a decent backup ready to go. But, if it allowed Washington to fill a deficient spot in return, particularly on defense, I guess they'd go for it.

Unless someone offers them a first round pick, I doubt he'll be traded until at least 2015 (contract year).

And it's not so much of RGIII needing to expand his arsenal (he throws much more than he runs, in fact the play he got injured was his only run of the game), it's Washington needing to shore up that OL. If you can't ensure protection of your QB to a relatively safe degree, then you need a suitable backup. It's hard to get those, so they're usually drafted with hopes they can play well, and if not, they're at least cheap. That's why I'm leaning towards "First rounder or hold until contract year" kind of thing, since once he's a FA he'll definitely start somewhere, or at least be one of the better and well paid backups out there.

Sanchez has (finally) been benched. The new starting QB is . . . Tim Te- I mean, Greg McElroy.

First career start.

It's been obvious since game 1 that Rex Ryan had no intention to use Tebow more than necessary. And what was necessary was just enough for the fans to come to games to see him and to buy jerseys.

Because he didn't want Tebow to begin with. That was all on Woody Johnson who wanted the money from jersey sales and to have a super Christian on the team.

The legend of Tebow has really died down in his back-up obscurity, though. I wonder how much financial gain they really achieved from bringing him to the team.

And if that's the main priority of the GM (i.e. $$$$$) -- he needs to go.

GM is Tannebaum. Woody Johnson's the owner.

Tannebaum can easily be culled. Woody Johnson - no.

Names aren't important. But, y'get the point. NFL teams are in the business of winning games and championships.

It amazes me how much attention the Jets have gotten this season. Yes I know Tebow is on the team, but so what. He doesn't even play and the media still feels obligated to care like it's an interesting story. The Jets weren't nearly as popular even when they were winning under Pennington or Testaverde. The Jets now are just as popular as the Giants despite being terrible.

Tebow was name one of the most influential people in the world. There is little surprise of the outburst. Many wanted to see him play yet the Jets refuse to allow him. It sort of makes the Jets organization look bad for the dealing with the issue before it became big, nowadays people believe the Jets only got Tebow to bring revenue over Jersey sells and among other things.

I'm sure Tebow is a great person, but he's a terrible quarterback. Just terrible.

Tebow is shit.

Anyways, I'm going to be popping off some cold ones as Seattle makes the Niners cry. Like little girls.

Jets will look into trading away Sanchez' contract this offseason. Tebow will be gone, too.

I don't know what's cuter, that there are people who think Tebow can play QB, or that Tebow himself thinks he can play QB.

I wonder, will they try to trade up in the draft to get either Geno Smith or Matt Barkley?

Well. The Jest managed to garnish some level of attention via Rex Ryan and how brash he had been -- when they were winning and making it all the way to the AFC Championship.
