Sunday was, somehow, a new low for the Jets
. They lost, again, this time 27-17 to the Chargers
. Greg McElroy
started, Jeremy Kerley
(!) attempted a pass, and San Diego never saw the vaunted wildcat featuring one Tim Tebow
That's apparently because Tebow "told the coaches he didn't want to be used in any Wildcat personnel," Jane McManus of ESPN New York reports
In so much as anything can be surprising with the Jets these days, this is pretty shocking: it paints Tebow in the opposite light that we're used to hearing, which is the ultimate team-first guy.
Asked about not being included in the Wildcat Sunday, Tebow said "It just kind of happens."
"It's been disappointing, obviously (the season) didn't go as we thought, as I had hoped," Tebow said. "But sometimes in life you have that. Sometimes you have setbacks and you have to look at them as an opportunity to step back up and keep working and figure out what to do."
