Greg McElroy is the New York Jets new starting quarterback for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers, replacing Mark Sanchez and leaping over Tim Tebow on the depth chart, says Chris Mortensen of

The move was made after Sanchez's five-turnover implosion Monday night that helped to eliminate the Jets from playoff contention with their 14-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans.
