Why Tim Tebow Should Be Third on the Jets Quarterback Depth Chart

Some believed Tim Tebow should have replaced Mark Sanchez weeks ago, but now, it's too late for Tebow. 

The polarizing Florida alum needs to be the No. 3 on the team's depth chart as they head to Jacksonville to take on the Jaguars

Rex Ryan did say the following to Vito Stellino of the Florida Times-Union regarding Tebow:

After refusing to give Tebow a chance to start this season or allowing him any significant stretch of game action, why would the Jets head coach place him back as the No. 2 quarterback a week removed from Sanchez being benched for Greg McElroy.

Does he want more controversy? 

At his point, maybe. 

Where should Tim Tebow be on the Jets' depth chart?

After all, Jacksonville is Tebow country. 

There is a caveat to Stellino's report, however. Ryan did state that Tebow will only be the No. 2 quarterback if he's healthy. 

Tebow has been dealing with a rib injury and is conveniently listed listed as questionable for Sunday's tilt. 

Could all three quarterbacks be active against the Jaguars? 

Possibly. 

Right now, McElroy deserves, at the very least, to be Sanchez's backup. He wasn't tremendous filling in for Sanchez during last week's victory over the Arizona Cardinals, but he led the team to victory and because he's fully, he would presumably be a better option than a less-than-100-percent Tebow.
