The Jets' playoff hopes were put to bed in Monday night's 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans. The game was a microcosm of the Jets' disaster of a season -- Mark Sanchez throwing interceptions, Tim Tebow coming in anytime Sanchez developed even the slightest rhythm, fumbles, missed plays and just a general lack of anything resembling good football. In a way, this might work out well for New York going into next season -- it has two games to determine what it wants to do with its quarterback situation -- and, no doubt, its coaching situation as well.
The Jets have been a defensive-minded team these past few years, but that hasn't helped them in this year's complete offensive collapse.
Monday night's announcers pointed out that the Jets substituted for Mark Sanchez the moment he started to play well, leading to the thought that they might be misusing him.
At this point, the Jets have nothing to lose, and if they were ever serious about giving Tim Tebow a chance to start, now would be the time to show it.
