Its my theory that the main reason why Rex isnt starting Tebow for the rest of the season is because if Tebow plays well and sparks the team, that he'll never hear the end of why he didnt put him in sooner.
yup, but same issue with McElroy IMHO
I don't think there's any great conspiracy.
My best guess is either, a.) Sanchez is actually the best QB on the roster (as bad as he is, this is still likely), b.) Rex was under pressure to keep Sanchez in the lineup due to his contract, or c.) some combination of a.) and b.).
If he was afraid of Tebow or McElroy winning, Sanchez would be starting this week.
Given Mark's contract, it was perfectly reasonable to give him a shot at redemption against a couple bad teams on the road. It's still in the Jets interest that Sanchez work out - however more remote that possibility becomes. They might still be giving him a chance if they didn't think the home crowd might riot. Sanchez may not like being pulled, but it's in his best interest at this point.
