According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, Jets head coach Rex Ryan is “leaning” towards starting Greg McElroy over Mark Sanchez for their Week 14 matchup against the Jaguars.
One of La Canfora’s sources mentioned that Jets’ thinking is currently “65-35” in favor of McElroy. The Jets reportedly liked the ”improved pace and verve” that the team’s offense showed while McElroy was under center.
La Canfora adds that the Jets do not consider Tim Tebow a starting quarterback and he is not in consideration for the team’s starting quarterback position.
It will be interesting to see what the Jets elect to do during the offseason in regards to the quarterback position and Sanchez’s contract. He’s in line to make $8.25 million in guarantees next season, so it’s safe to assume that he’ll be back.
