    I'd say the other big difference was 27 San Diego, and 17 New York.

    Close... the record is 12, and that's been done 5 times.

    Didn't watch the game but from what I gather there wasn't much of a pocket in which to move around. Evidently he made some mistakes as well but this was his first designated starting role in the NFL. Eleven sacks and only one turnover? Seems to me he held it together pretty well under the circumstances.

    G-Mac will take this game and learn from it. He'll likely peform much better next week.

    RTR!!!

    Granted, it'll be against the Bills... although that place is notorious for bad weather and crazy winds at the end of the season.

    Now that I think about it... it'll be hilarious to see how people react if/when Marcell Dareus sacks Greg a couple of times.

    One area where there wasn't a difference in this game was at head coach. Both are totally inept.

    No argument there.

    Wow!! 11 sacks....gotta wonder if that wasn't a message sent to GMAC regarding the comments he made about the locker room at the end of last season. Those guys have alot of pride and didn't take kindly to a late round rookie calling them out. Let's hope next week they (the OL) display a better effort than they did today. We all now GMAC has some limitations but he is very smart and he will learn from this first game and should improve himself next week.

    Tebow was leapfrogged by Greg McElroy on the team's depth chart when Rex Ryan chose to have the third-stringer make his first NFL start in place of the benched Mark Sanchez. All three quarterbacks were active, but only McElroy played, and Tebow never got into the game in the team's wildcat package. Tebow said ''it just happened'' that he didn't play in the package usually reserved for him, but ESPN New York reported that he actually asked out of running the wildcat earlier in the week, according to sources.

    Otherwise, it has been a lot of standing around for Tebow. There were several moments throughout the game Sunday when the defense was on the field and McElroy and Sanchez went over the game plan with offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, while Tebow was off to the side talking with other teammates.

    I'm sure he's frustrated, but he's had many, many more opportunities to play than GMac all season, and while I'm sure he's ready to move on, if you can't come in and continue to do your part for the team even when things aren't going as you planned, it comes off as a bit of sour grapes and an ego thing, imho. Gonna be interesting to see how things go with him in Jax next season if he does indeed get traded and becomes the starter, as most think.
    The Jets Oline is putrid but GMac needs to make the most of this opportunity, as he's probably playing for a team spot next year. Best of luck to both.
