EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Dustin Keller heard the crowd chanting for Tim Tebow, and he didn't appreciate it. He doesn't think it's fair to Mark Sanchez.

"I'm a big Tebow fan, but I'm not a big fan of screaming to get the backup quarterback in," Keller said after the Jets' 30-9 loss Sunday to the Dolphins. "I feel like fans should have the starting quarterback's back until they do officially make some type of change. If you're a fan, you should be cheering for the starting quarterback.

"I feel like, at times, people weren't standing behind Mark," he continued. "He's going to get this thing turned around. He knows that we, his teammates, have his back. Hell, we believe in him and we will get this turned around."

Antonio Cromartie threw his support to the embattled Sanchez.

"I believe in Mark, I believe in the guys we have," he said. "Mark just came off one of his best games, playing New England. He just went into a slump this week."
