Do not be surprised to see Tim Tebow articles around the web this week. The only way to avoid that would have been for the Jets to go 16-0.
If you are wondering whether or not Tebow actually has a chance of playing at quarterback any time soon, the answer is still no.
The people whose opinions actually matter are general manager Mike Tannenbaum and head coach Rex Ryan. Both of them are still as crystal clear with the media as they have always been on this subject. Coach Ryan even got a little bit annoyed with the media for the repeated prodding of the same questions. Said Ryan (via Kimberley Martin of Newsday):
Look, I was all for bringing Tim Tebow in here, because I know what he does. There will be more [impact plays for him]... I expect some big things in the future from Tim Tebow. I was upset with the loss. I'm not worried about a question about Tim Tebow.
When asked about not using Tebow in the fourth quarter, Ryan added, "By then, we're down several points, so I think you need to throw the ball in those situations."
In Rex Ryan's mind, Tim Tebow is not even an option in a passing play. He is a Brad Smith-esque running back. To Rex Ryan, the question "Did you consider Tebow?" meant, "Did you consider running the ball?"
It is no coincidence that Tim Tebow has thrown the ball zero times so far this season. He has a role on the team, and that role does not include throwing the ball. Mark Sanchez will have more good games and more bad games this year. However, that fact will not change.
