POLL: Who should start at quarterback for the New York Jets?

Debby Wong-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Who should be the starting quarterback for the New York Jets, Mark Sanchez or Tim Tebow?

New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan says Mark Sanchez will remain the team's starting quarterback despite being the only starter in the NFL with a completion percentage below 50 percent through the first five weeks of the season. Tim Tebow continues to play the good soldier, saying after Monday's 23-17 loss to the Houston Texans "I just do what I'm told."

The means running fake punts, playing a little 'Wildcat' quarterback and being a decoy at times. It apparently won't mean taking over for Sanchez as the No. 1 QB.

Is this the right decision for Ryan and the Jets? Everyone who has seen the Jets knows Sanchez doesn't have much to work with. Monday night he had a fullback (Lex Hilliard) and a wide receiver (Jason Hill) who had only been on the team for a few days playing significant snaps. He had cornerback Antonio Cromartie playing wide receiver.

It's no wonder Ryan won't deny rumors about the Jets being interested in Terrell Owens.

The group around Sanchez doesn't, realistically, give him or any quarterback much of a chance to succeed. Still, is keeping Sanchez in the starting role the right move for the Jets? Vote in the poll.
