The New York Jets' quarterback carousel continued to spin leading up to a Week 14 meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Tebow returned from a rib injury to the No. 2 spot on the depth chart, awaiting another poor performance from the constantly underwhelming Sanchez. While Tebow did not actually get that chance, the Twitter-verse still had plenty of opinions to share on the controversy.
Let's look over some of the highlights:
Jets play selection: 34 runs vs. only 17 passes. Doesn't matter who's playing QB with a gameplan like that. NYJ leads 17-3.— BuzzFeed Sports (@BuzzFeedSports) December 9, 2012
Chad Henne should be the starting QB of the Jets.He seems to be very comfortable finding the wide open Jets jersey.— JetNation.com (@JetNation) December 9, 2012
Woody's Barnum and Bailey Circus is 6-7. Hiding their own QB and 1 starting receiver like a magic trick...Don't ask. #jets— todd jason (@TheJetReport) December 9, 2012
Kobe Bryant irked his 30,000 point mark might be over-shadowed by Mark Sanchez's 30,000th turnover— Fake SportsCenter (@FakeSportsCentr) December 9, 2012

Eventually the conversation shifted to a comparison between the Jets' quarterback situation and that of the Washington Redskins:
I bet the Jets would trade both QB's for Kirk Cousins— Rudolph Valentino (@Agu_Vendetta) December 9, 2012
#DidYouKnow 1+1 doesn't always = 2. Example: In Washington, RGIII + Kirk Cousins = 2 QBs. In New York, Mark Sanchez + Tim Tebow = 0 QBs.— Tony Przybylek (@TonyPrzybylek) December 9, 2012
Both of the Redskins rookie QB's are better than anything the #Jets have.— Peyton's Head (@PeytonsHead) December 9, 2012
Sanchez finished the game with 12 completions for 111 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions. The Jets play the Tennessee Titans on Monday Night Football next week.
