    Chargers won't see Sanchez, Tebow as starter | UTSanDiego.com

    The Jets have seen enough of Mark Sanchez.

    Tim Tebow, too.

    So, it will be Greg McElroy whom the Chargers defense will face at quarterback Sunday, as the 2011 seventh-round draft pick will make his first NFL start. The Jets announced the decision Tuesday, one day after Sanchez imploded with four turnovers in a loss to the Titans.

    McElroy has appeared in one career game, completing five of seven passes for 29 yards and a touchdown on Dec. 2 against the Cardinals.

    The former Alabama two-year starter was inactive in every other game of his career. He missed his rookie season with a thumb injury.

    In March, San Diego tied some guaranteed money into players who've yet to return the investment.

    Left tackle Jared Gaither's $8 million signing bonus will count $2 million against the cap in each of the next three years, and wide receiver Robert Meachem's 2013 base salary of $5 million is fully guaranteed. A $1.875 million prorated sum of his $7.5 million signing bonus will count annually against the cap through 2015.

    All that money, respectively, would become dead money if the player was released.

    New York can relate.

    Sanchez has a fully guaranteed base salary of $8.25 million in 2013. He has committed 50 turnovers since 2011, most in the NFL.

    Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, amid roster turnover on the offensive line and also receiver in the span, ranks second with 47.

    Aside from one Monday night many years ago, the Chargers never beat the Jets.

    The Chargers will make whoever is QB for the Jets look like an all-pro.

    I wonder if Norv is willing to find enough fire to motivate the team to avenge last years loss to the jets?

    I just can't see us winning any other way. The Jets D will reign havoc on Rivers in what I'm expecting to be a slop feast.

    K I'm all for hoping for good draft position but can't hope the jets win. I want the Chargers to crush the jets into a fine dust and snort that dust like it's rails of trucker speed.

    Tebow is apparently infuriated at the Jets organization, he feels they lied to him about his role with the team and his opportunity.

    Man if Tebow is pissed.......

    Looks like an ugly, horrible game ending with a Charger loss coming up. Jets did us a huge favor dropping their game against Tennessee. The least we can do is spot their fans some win-heroin.
