The Mark Sanchez/Tim Tebow debate has consumed the back pages of New York tabloids for most of the season, but might they have been focusing on the wrong backup quarterback? Greg McElroy didn't exactly turn into Joe Namath upon replacing Mark Sanchez in the Jets' matchup against the Cardinals, but he did lead the Jets to their first and only score and the win without throwing an interception. Tebow could do nothing but watch from the sideline, out with an injury on the one day when he might have taken over for good in New York. Is McElroy the answer at quarterback for the Jets?More: Is Sanchez done as the Jets' starter? What should the team do in 2013?
McElroy's biggest contribution to the Jets' win may have been simply not turning the ball over -- a problem that has plagued Mark Sanchez.
A playoff spot?
The Jets are 5-7, a record that might have been better with improved quarterback play.
A Tebow-sized mistake?
Tim Tebow has contributed little to the Jets on the field, while providing (through no fault of his own) a pretty significant distraction.
