New York Jets’ head coach Rex Ryan’s decision at quarterback says a lot about the team’s commitment to Mark Sanchez and their determination to make it work, according to YouWager experts.
Backup Greg McElroy, the new favorite of many online sports betting fans after rallying New York to a 7-6 victory over the Arizona Cardinals, for now will remain on the bench with Tim Tebow.
The next detail on the list is about the No. 2 job. Coach Ryan is not ready to make that announcement. That will depend largely on Tebow’s health, according to what has been said.
Ryan benched 26 year-old Sanchez for the first time in his career Sunday, which began a quarterback controversy. It intensified when McElroy, in his NFL debut, led the weak offense to its only score.
Sanchez, coming off a three-interception nightmare, will come back to his familiar role Sunday versus the Jacksonville Jaguars. Since this football game is away from home it should help him; he won’t have to deal with the feelings of the New York fans, many of whom have turned on him in recent weeks.
Turnovers have been a big part of Sanchez’s difficulties he has faced the past two seasons. As a matter of fact, only Philip Rivers has committed more turnovers since the start of the 2011 season. In addition, the Jets QB leads the league in home turnovers with 24 over that same time span.
