Tebow Wants to Leave Jets to Surprise of No One

by at . Comments

Popular New York Jets quarterback Tim Tebow reportedly wants to leave the team and will request to be traded or released after the 2012 season.

The move is expected if backup quarterback Greg McElroy starts the final two games of the season for the Jets, the New York Daily News reports.

McElroy, a second year pro, was given the start for this Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers due to the fact that starter Mark Sanchez sucks.

Sanchez, long considered the future of the franchise, committed five turnovers in a terrible 14-10 loss at the Tennessee Titans on Monday night.

Tebow was acquired in an off-season trade with Denver, with the Jets saying at the time they planned to make him an integral part of the offense.

He has played only sparingly this season behind incumbent Sanchez, who started the first 14 games, and who was pulled once before - for McElroy.

Tebow has completed 6 of 8 passes for 39 yards and rushed for 32 times for 102 yards this season in 11 games (he missed three with injured ribs).

What do you think? Should your team trade for Tebow?

The problem with he Jets, is Rex Ryan. I like Mark Sanchez but He's not the QB that they thaought he would be. Ryan aught to get his fat ass of the turf and start Tibow. He should have done it this past week. AT least he gives you a different type of look that just might work. Then thr Jets organization has to get rid of smart mouth Ryan. He hasn't said onething that has come ttrue for the Jets

Ryan, the Jets, most of the NFL media types must be relatives of those "brilliant" types that said Unitas can't throw a spiral or Tarkington is too small or Bradshaw isn't smart enough. Know it alls seem to abound... Almost like the NFL is afraid to have a guy play who won't go to jail, but goes to church. How can they continue to overlook a guy who JUST WINS.
