The crowd at MetLife Stadium was clearly on the side of third-string quarterback Greg McElroy when he entered Sunday's game to replace an ineffective Mark Sanchez.

They were even more behind him when he directed the New York Jets' only touchdown drive of the game in an ugly 7-6 win over Arizona.

With Sanchez struggling with three interceptions and Tim Tebow out with a rib injury, Jets fans may have found a new favorite QB.

But Jets players aren't being drawn into a controversy on who should start at quarterback.

“I’m here for both quarterbacks so I don’t have anything to say," receiver Stephen Hill told the New York Daily News.

So now what to do for Rex Ryan and the Jets as the two-quarterback monster of Sanchez and Tebow now has a third tentacle in McElroy?
