The New York Jets' quarterback carousel continued to spin leading up to a Week 14 meeting with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

After relieving Mark Sanchez last week, Greg McElroy was rendered inactive this week in favor of the returning Tim Tebow.

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:

 

How many people at #Jets/#Jaguars wishing Tebow could be "all-time QB" today?

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.

Chad Henne should be the starting QB of the Jets.He seems to be very comfortable finding the wide open Jets jersey.

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

If you want to see two QB's who will won't have jobs by January tune into the Jags vs Jets. #Sanchez #Henne

Kobe Bryant irked his 30,000 point mark might be over-shadowed by Mark Sanchez's 30,000th turnover

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

#DidYouKnow 1+1 doesn't always = 2. Example: In Washington, RGIII + Kirk Cousins = 2 QBs. In New York, Mark Sanchez + Tim Tebow = 0 QBs.

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.
