Jim McIsaac/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Is it Tebow-time in New York?  After Sunday’s embarrassing 34-0 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, fans began chanting backup quarterback Tim Tebow’s name.

But, New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan still believes that the team has the ability to be more successful with Mark Sanchez.

“I don’t want to get into the what if’s or this that, whatever,” Ryan said on Monday. “I just know in my heart right now that this is not the time.”

“I think Tim is an outstanding player, I think Mark is.  Right now I think Mark gives us our best opportunity to win.”

Sanchez admitted on Sunday that everything starts with the quarterback and he didn’t play well enough for the team to win.
