02:57 PM ET 12.18 | Greg McElroy will get the start at quarterback for the New York Jets in Week 16, according to Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News. It will be the first start of McElroy's NFL career as he replaces the ineffective Mark Sanchez. McElroy hops Tim Tebow for the starting job. Tebow was the high-profile backup quarterback who many have been calling for throughout the season. He is currently playing with broken ribs, and made a brief appearance on Monday night. He had not played in the Jets' previous three games.

Rex would rather gargle battery acid than start Tebow. Not gonna happen.

Good for McElroy. He gets an audition for other teams. Maybe he'll get picked up when the Jest start rebuilding.

It's about damn time.

That fancy preseason press conference is gonna be the highlight of Tebow's year...

I wonder if Ken O'Brien is available?

Unfortunately Tebow gets screwed because of Rex's ego. I hope they cut Tim loose so he can have another chance elsewhere.

Vegas does. The spread tightened up a bit after the announcement.

Had they used him on MNF instead of TT this story might mean something.

Yea! about time and to think the zits made McLeroy inactive last weekend.

Appropriate. Lately they've rolled over with Sanchez.
