The Tebow Saga Continues

Follow me on:

The Tim Tebow experiment in New York has apparently failed.

When Jets coach (for the time being, that is) Rex Ryan announced earlier this week that he would replace the benched Mark Sanchez with Greg McElroy, rather than the much-hyped Tebow, a signal was clearly sent that the Jets simply don't believe Tebow has much of a future with the team--not as a quarterback, not as anything.

And Tebow clearly understands that.

Speaking about the situation on Wednesday, Tebow admitted he was "disappointed" when he found out that he had been passed over in favor of McElroy, a second-year player out of Alabama who has attempted all of 7 passes in his NFL career (to his credit, McElroy completed five of them ... for 29 yards). Tebow also made clear that he didn't want to stick around in New York if the Jets weren't going to play him, saying that he planned to talk to the team about his future after the season. He added that he hadn't asked for a trade--not yet, at least.

Yes, it's a mess up there in New York. Sanchez's career is on hold, and Tebow's is, too, and about the only folks who can be happy this are McElroy, who will get a great shot to prove his worth, and the executives at ESPN, who as we all know simply can't get enough Tebow--good, bad, or otherwise.

Then there's the rest of us. Who have pretty much had our fill. - Tim Hyland
