After yesterday's rumors about New York Jets' backup quarterback, Tim Tebow, ending up in Chicago, the New York Jets have come out to put the hammer down on the possibility.

"The New York Jets do not plan to release quarterback Tim Tebow before the start of the new league year in March and instead will hold on to him with the hopes that they can trade him," reported ESPN's Adam Schefter, according to league sources.

So, as of today, Tim Tebow will remain a Jet and start the season in green, were he will probably warm the bench behind Mark Sanchez (the guy who ran into the rear-end of his own offensive linesman and fumbled the ball, leading to a defensive run-back touchdown for their hated rival New England Patriots on Thanksgiving).

For Tebow, a man who came off the bench in Denver and led the 1-4 team to a division title and a wild-card win against the top-rated defense, Pittsburgh Steelers, to sit behind Sanchez is more than insulting, but he never complained.

"I am going to do what the coaches tell me to do. I am here for my team when they need me," he said, according to New York Daily News.

The question throughout the year was why did the Jets bring him in if he wasn't going to play?

Some pundits claimed it was for publicity (ESPN covered their training camp, while the defending Super Bowl Champions and in-stadium rival the New York Giants were ignored). Other even thought it was to embarrass him due to beating them the year prior, ultimately eliminating them from playoff contention.

Could that really be a valid reason?

Well, for a head coach like Rex Ryan, some believe yes.

"He is a good player, but I feel Sanchez gives us the best chance to win," said Ryan at every press conference last season, even though Sanchez had the worst Quarterback rating, "23.4," according to ESPN.com.

"He doesn't deserve this type of treatment," said ESPN's Skip Bayless.

"This is an utter and complete shame, said ESPN's Steven A. Smith.

According to webpronews, one NFL General Manager is reported as saying, "I think his career is over without playing another position."

All this news circling on and on, centered around a man who "can't throw," yet had the best AFC completion rating in the fourth quarter, with an"106.3 rating," according to NFL.com

Tebow also can't manage a game correctly, yet, again, in his eight starts with Denver, he led the team to victory, coming from behind, six times (including against the Jets), according to NFL.com.

While in the playoffs, as the Jets were at home watching on TV, he threw a bullet pass to his wide receiver, Demaryius Thomas, to win the game.

All these excuses for Tebow's success without acknowledging that some players are "gamers" (can do their best during a game, but not practice) and others aren't.

Should the Jets trade him and should Tebow come back and beat them, the "sorry excuse for a team," as stated by WFAN's Craig Carton, would be even sorrier.

Maybe that is the reason behind all this?

Acquiring Tebow and sitting him on the bench ensures that they won't lose to "the man that can't throw."

Rex Ryan is an evil genius.
