    I had actually wondered the same thing, although I had forgotten about GMac's locker room comments. His offensive line was almost to bad to be an NFL line, so I couldn't help but wonder if they were trying to send a message to the coaching staff as well.

    To me this should nearly kill Tebow's career. Refusing to play is not a professional move, that's immature and unprofessional. It seems like Jacksonville might be his last chance to have the sort of career he's imagined, and I'm not betting on that. He's acting like an entitled little brat and at this point I'm cheering for him to fail. He could have handled himself properly and instead he bit the hand that feeds him.

    Is there a report that says he really did refuse to play in the Wildcat? All I've seen are "unnamed sources".

    I think the ESPN article I read said he asked or requested not to play the wildcat. Basically the same as refusing.

    Jets had 225 total yards, Chargers 223.
    Jets 18 first downs, Chargers 15.
    Biggest difference-- GMac got sacked 11 times, Rivers got sacked 4.

    To add to that, the rushing stats were bad for the Jets. Their leading rusher only had 38 yds in 14 carries. I think GMac is unfortunately getting his chance after the team as a whole has given up and doesn't care anymore. It won't be easy for him.

    I might give that some credence if it weren't for the fact that his comments last year weren't directed at the offensive line. He was talking about Santana Moss, Darelle Revis, et al. I'm pretty sure that some of those guys up front probably felt the same way as Greg.

    Here's a couple of articles.

    From what I gather early in the week Tebow basically said he wanted to be full-time QB and not wildcat QB. I'm not sure if we'll have anyone on record come out and verify that story though, but even the apologists are saying that he was just upset he wasn't the starting QB. Well, his job isn't to be the starting QB, it's to do what is asked of him.

    Santana Moss hasn't played for the Jets since the end of 2004.
