So Mark Sanchez is the Jets started again because Greg McElroy has a concussion…


1129S1 Sanchez 40p 1 So Mark Sanchez is the Jets started again because Greg McElroy has a concussion...

A mere four months, not four epochs, have passed since Mark Sanchez had his finest game of the season, throwing three touchdown passes in a 48-28 victory against Buffalo that left the entire Jets organization giddy.

Sanchez has lost a lot since — eight starts, his starting job and pretty much all the faith the Jets had in him — but the Sept. 9 season opener quickly became relevant again at 9:30 a.m. Thursday, when Greg McElroy walked into Rex Ryan’s office with a towel wrapped around his head.

McElroy, the former third-string quarterback who was sacked 11 times in his first N.F.L. start, a 27-17 loss Sunday to San Diego, was lifting weights Thursday, Ryan said, when he began experiencing headaches. And that is how Sanchez got his job back.

“Come to find out that Greg wasn’t exactly truthful with our training staff after the game,” Ryan said.

McElroy was ordered to have an evaluation for a concussion. Ryan did not need to know the results to know that he would not play McElroy in Sunday’s finale at Buffalo.

Then Ryan called Sanchez and Tim Tebow, the other quarterback, into the hallway and informed them that Sanchez would start. The Jets had two days to prepare for the game — “a short window,” Ryan said — and he felt better with Sanchez.

“Mark has had success earlier in the season against Buffalo,” Ryan said. “He’s very familiar with them, and that’s the reason I’m going with Mark.”

He added, “Obviously, Tim’s not happy with that,” although Ryan said that his decision did not mean Tebow would not play. Tebow said later, smiling, that he would do whatever Ryan asked him to do Sunday.

Only 24 hours earlier, Tebow denied reports that he had asked out of running plays from the Wildcat formation against San Diego, in part, because he had been upset that Ryan had named McElroy, not Tebow, as the starting quarterback.

“I understood his position, and I respect it, and I respect him as a coach, and we still got a great relationship,” Tebow said Thursday. “I’m looking forward to doing whatever I can to help the team beat the Buffalo Bills.”

Tony Sparano, the beleaguered first-year offensive coordinator, described Ryan’s latest quarterback change as “another bump in the road,” adding, deadpan, “It’s something we’ve become a little accustomed to dealing with.”

But Sparano laughed when he was asked what he thought immediately after Ryan told him he was making a move from McElroy back to Sanchez. He replied: “I was pretty silent. Hard to believe, I know.”

The Jets (6-9) and the Bills (5-10) have been eliminated from playoff contention, and there is a 60 percent chance of snow Sunday in Orchard Park, N.Y. When they last met, it was sunny and 74 degrees at MetLife Stadium, and both teams were full of hope.

Sanchez has 17 interceptions and 7 fumbles this season and was reduced to charting plays run by McElroy during the Jets’ loss to San Diego. He was also unsure that the September game against Buffalo would help all that much.

“It’s two totally different teams,” Sanchez said, “and it’s been months apart.”

He also said he felt bad for McElroy, but then he said situations like these were why teams have a backup quarterback — which he became last week. He said he was excited to play and wanted to make the most of his chance, even though it might not mean much. Ryan said Sanchez would be evaluated on the entire season, not just one game.

“I guess I didn’t expect it,” Sanchez said of his latest chance to play. “I didn’t come in today thinking he had a concussion.”

Sparano said Ryan carried through on his promise to talk to the Jets after practice about disclosing injuries. Ryan said that he admired McElroy’s courage and determination to keep his job but that McElroy needed to be more forthcoming.

Ryan said, “I just feel fortunate that something like this showed up without him going out there and putting himself in harm’s way.”

As Ryan stepped off the podium after a 20-minute news conference, he was asked if this had been the strangest season of his coaching career.

He drew laughter when he said: “I would say that’s pretty accurate. And we’ve had some strange ones.”

Calvin Johnson breaks Jerry Rice’s single season record for receiving yards!


calvin johnson Calvin Johnson breaks Jerry Rices single season record for receiving yards!

Detroit Lions receiver Calvin Johnson has had a record-breaking night.

Johnson surpassed Jerry Rice’s single-season yards receiving record of 1,848 with his 10th catch in the fourth quarter Saturday night. That put Johnson over the 200-yard mark in the game against theAtlanta Falcons. He needed 182 to surpass the mark Rice set in 1995 with the San Francisco 49ers.

Johnson had more than 100 yards receiving for an eighth straight game, breaking an NFL record set by Charley Hennigan in 1961 and matched by Michael Irvin in 1995. Johnson broke another league mark with 10 receptions in a fourth game in a row.

It was Johnson’s 11th game with 100 yards receiving this season, tying Irvin’s NFL mark.

In the first quarter, Johnson surpassed Herman Moore’s single-season franchise record of 1,686 yards.

Befitting a season that has gone badly, Johnson fumbled in the first half to help Atlanta add to its big lead.


Mark Sanchez benched for Greg McElroy; Tim Tebow requests a trade



sanchez mcelroy tebow Mark Sanchez benched for Greg McElroy; Tim Tebow requests a trade

The Jets added a few more bizarre chapters Tuesday to a surreal quarterback storyline that has grabbed the headlines for the better part of nine months. One day after Rex Ryan’s loyalty to Mark Sanchez cost the Jets a chance at the playoffs, the coach pulled the plug on the supposed franchise quarterback by replacing him with the third-string quarterback who hadn’t been active for two weeks. Greg McElroy will make his first career start against the Chargers at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, three weeks after he relieved Sanchez in the second half of a 7-6 win over the Cardinals.

Ryan’s decision was a stunning indictment not only of Sanchez, once believed to be the future of the franchise, but also backup Tim Tebow, who has become an afterthought.

 

But Ryan’s decision to bench Sanchez wasn’t the only domino to fall less than 24 hours after the Jets were mathematically eliminated from the playoffs.

The Daily News has learned that Tebow, who captivated the NFL last season with his miracle playoff run in Denver, will request to be traded or released after the season assuming that McElroy starts the final two games. Tebow’s desire to part ways with a franchise that never gave him a chance came to a head after McElroy, who has seven career passes on his NFL resume, leapfrogged him, according to a source.

“I want to put Greg out there,” Ryan said on Tuesday. “I’m going to put Greg out there. In my opinion, that’s what’s best for our team.”

Ryan admitted that he told Sanchez after Monday night’s disastrous loss in Tennessee that he would bench him this week. “I told Mark we needed to make a change,” Ryan said. “He respected my decision.”

Ryan and Sanchez’s four-year run began with so much promise with back-to-back AFC Championship Game appearances in the first two seasons. But it ended with a pair of disappointing seasons. Ryan made the decision to start McElroy instead of Tebow on Tuesday.

Ryan said that he “had a lot of conversations” with people in the organization, but it was ultimately his call to bench Sanchez, who had started every game of his career except one late in his rookie year due to a knee injury.

“This is my decision and solely my decision,” said Ryan, who didn’t commit to McElroy as the starter beyond this week.

Ryan had no choice but to make the switch after Sanchez’s miserable five-turnover performance in Monday night’s 14-10 loss to the Titans on Monday night. Sanchez has a league-high 50 turnovers since the start of last season.

Ryan benched Sanchez late in the third quarter three weeks ago after he threw three interceptions. McElroy rallied the Jets to a 7-6 win over the Cardinals on that day, but he was inactive for the next two games. “I liked what I saw from Greg against Arizona,” Ryan said. “I like what I see on the practice field.”

Although the prospect of having Sanchez under center in front of a disgruntled home fan base on Sunday would appear to have made the decision easier for Ryan, the prevailing thought in the organization was that the upcoming game’s locale didn’t really matter.

“Home or away . . . I don’t care where the game is being played,” one prominent member of the organization told The News said before Ryan made it official. “There’s no way that he starts.”

Sanchez lost some trust of teammates after his poor performances in the recent months, but many wanted to give him another chance after Ryan benched him in the second half against the Cardinals in Week 13.

Although players didn’t explicitly point fingers at Sanchez after his five-turnover performance on Monday night, the vibe was apparent: The quarterback’s blunders were the primary reasons that the Jets dropped too 6-8 and out of playoff contention.

“I can’t speak for everybody,” safety LaRon Landry said. “That’s not my job (to speak about the offense). I’m a defender. That’s why they’ve got guys upstairs and coaches. They make that decision.”

Sanchez shouldn’t be exonerated for his poor decision-making and execution on Monday night, but the Jets made a couple of curious decisions that proved counterproductive. Ryan inexplicably chose to activate six wide receivers rather than dress McElroy. The Jets also predetermined that Tebow, who hadn’t played in three weeks due to a lingering rib injury, would get a full series for the first time this season on the third drive.

Sanchez moved the  Jets well on their first two drives, but watched from the sidelines when the Tebow-led drive went nowhere.

“I don’t set standards for Mark,” right guard Brandon Moore said. “Mark is doing the best he can. You can’t take away his commitment and his approach to the game.”

The bigger question is whether the Jets’ brain trust undercut Sanchez this season by trading for Tebow. “I don’t necessarily believe that,” Ryan said.

So, was the Tebow trade a mistake? “People can speculate anything they want,” Ryan said.

But the reality is impossible to ignore. Tebow’s presence had an adverse effect on Sanchez, who didn’t help his cause by playing poorly. The quarterback mess ultimately cost the Jets a chance at the postseason.

Ryan didn’t get into specifics about his job security, but made it clear that he’s responsible for the final product, which wasn’t good enough for the second consecutive season.  “The end result is we’re 6-8 and I know I’m accountable for that,” Ryan said.
