TIM TEBOW: The experiment that was one of the most controversial moves that this team has made in many, many years. No matter what you or I feel about him, let’s take a look at this honestly. The Jets clearly were dishonest with Tim about the opportunities he would have here. He was supposed to be used creatively in the offense, and his use was anything but. The Jets had him gain weight, which appeared to do nothing except for making him slower. After averaging 5.4 yards per run in 2011 in Denver, he averaged a mere 3.2 yards per rush this season. He only threw the ball 8 times, hardly the weapon of “deception” that he was billed to be. Surely, Tim Tebow feels that 2012 was a waste in his career.

Instead of talking football, the mainstream media asks the Jets coaches and players the same 4 questions about Tim Tebow over and over again. The distractions far outweighed the positives that Tim brings to the table. The thought is that the Jets are going to try to deal him to Jacksonville, but even if they can’t make a trade, he would only be a hit of $1.5 million against the cap, and $1 million in dead money if he is released.

GREG MCELROY: Here is a guy that did everything that he was told. Coming off a rookie season he spent on injured reserve, he waited patiently behind Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. When called upon, he came in relief of Mark Sanchez and led the Jets to a season saving(temporarily) win over the Arizona Cardinals. Unfortunately, we couldn’t get a full evaluation of McElroy in his first start, because the Chargers put him on the ground with 11 sacks, and nearly 20 knockdowns. We don’t really know what we have with this guy going forward, not yet. But, there is no reason not to bring him back to compete for the job. Greg McElroy will be………..
