Good news, Jets fans -- Rex Ryan has picked a starting quarterback for this week's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Bad news, Jets fans -- it's not who most of you have been clamoring for.

Mark Sanchez, who has felt the wrath of the fans all season long and was benched in favor of third-stringer Greg McElroy last Sunday, will get the start this weekend, the team tweeted early Wednesday.

The team tweeted that Ryan told the players at a Wednesday morning meeting and would address the media at 11:45 a.m. ET.

Sanchez has struggled this season, with many fans calling for offseason acquisition Tim Tebow to get a shot. Tebow, who is nursing broken ribs and was in street clothes for Sunday's ugly 7-6 win over the Arizona Cardinals, has been limited to spot duty, primarily as a wildcat option.

McElroy didn't do a whole lot to impress against the Cardinals, but he did lead the Jets to their lone scoring drive, which was enough against the inept Arizona offense.
