Rex Ryan hangs his job on Mark Sanchez despite McElroy's success. Via Yahoo: Mark Sanchez, who was benched for third-stringer Greg McElroy after throwing three interceptions against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday, will get the nod against Jacksonville, according to several reports. Tebow, who is recovering from fractured ribs and hasn't been much of a factor all season, might not even suit up.
Head coach Rex Ryan told the team of his decision at the Jets' 8 a.m. team meeting on Wednesday.
For the Jets, the decision to keep Sanchez as the starter has far more to do with finances than performance. The team gave Sanchez, the fifth-overall selection in the 2009 NFL draft, a five-year, $58.5 million contract extension in March of this year that guarantees him $8.25 million in 2013 whether he plays or not.
Oh it's the old overpriced QB argument, good luck with that Rex. We'll see you in the coaching carousel in the off season.
