NFL Week 4: Backup QBs are awesome until they get to play

Hey, somebody forgot to tell the Jets they had a game on Sunday. Yes, really, they did! I don't know who those guys were wearing their uniforms, but that certainly didn't look like the performance of a team tied for first place in its division. To say the Jets got pounded by the 49ers would be the euphemism of the year. New York managed a paltry 148 yards of total offense, fumbled 3 times, and only converted on 2 of 13 third downs. Mark "Please don't take my starting job" Sanchez threw an interception and failed to show any signs of life. The hometown crowd started calling for backup Tim Tebow, who made a brief appearance in that ridiculous wildcat offense that fools no one. Does anyone really think Tebow is going to be the savior of this team? Looking at the big picture, the Jets are without Darrelle Revis for the season and they lost Santonio Holmes on Sunday to a foot injury that will likely keep him out for several weeks. Who is going to run the ball for the Jets? Who will Sanchez or Tebow throw the ball to? Somebody better figure out something fast. The 4-0 Houston Texans roll in to town next Monday night.
