Report: Jets owner wants QB Greg McElroy
By James Walker
As usual, we have dissention within the New York Jets' organization.
The latest comes from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. Mehta reports Jets owner Woody Johnson prefers to start third-string quarterback Greg McElroy Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Jets general manager Mike Tannenbaum and offensive coordinator Tony Sparano reportedly want Mark Sanchez. Tim Tebow, due to health reasons, doesn't appear to be a viable option this week.
Ultimately, the final call will be made by Jets head coach Rex Ryan, who seemed genuinely torn during Monday's news conference. Ryan said he's yet to make a decision and wants to get all of the facts by talking to key members of the organization.
It is no surprise there are varying opinions within the organization. This team has been dysfunctional and unable to get on the same page all season.
We will have more on the Jets' quarterback situation coming up next in the AFC East blog.
