The New York Jets’ quarterback problem has reached a new level of politics.
Nevada senator Harry Reid, the Majority Senate leader and a Democrat, while sharing his objections to a Republican budget proposal, compared the GOP to Rex Ryan’s players in the Senate.
"Coach (Rex) Ryan -- he's got a problem," Reid told the Senate. "He's got three quarterbacks. (Mark) Sanchez, he's got Tim Tebow, and he's got a guy by the name of (Greg) McElroy. He can't decide who their quarterback is going to be. That's the same problem the Republicans are having. Romney's gone, but he's still in the background. Who is the quarterback, Mr. President? My friend talks about the trillions of dollars of debt. Mr. President, we just had an election. The people overwhelmingly know why we have this deficit."
So far there’s been no comment from Ryan, but Jets’ owner Woody Johnson can’t be too happy. He was a vowed supporter of the Romney campaign.
