Drafting a QB Soon? Mark Sanchez Finally Benched

Updated: December 2, 2012

Rex finally did it. After throwing not one, not two, but three interceptions the Jets finally decided to switch quarterbacks today. Out went Mark Sanchez and in went Greg McElroy.

Yup. Greg McElroy. Not Tim Tebow, who is inactive with a rib injury.

The Jets under Rex Ryan have been notorious for sticking with Mark Sanchez even if he looks terrible. Two seasons ago Rex would routinely have Mark Brunell take a few first team snaps inorder to inspire Mark Sanchez. I guess the method has changed with Sanchize finally being regulated to the sideline.

Will New York draft a quarterback?

It is very possible. There will be some good names out there. A guy like Tyler Bray, Tyler Wilson, or even a Logan Thomas (scouts are warming back up to him) could all be in play.

With Tim Tebow still on the roster, I don’t see how drafting a new quarterback would go over smoothly. If the Jets are going to do it, the best way would be to completely clean house of Rex, Sanchez, and Tebow which I doubt will happen.
