I don't think you'll see Sanchez playing such games. Even last year, Sanchez had just two games with multiple ints in the first 13 games. Last 3 games were pretty bad for him but I expect him to be more reliable this year with some speed Jets picked up in WRs. That alone forces some pressure back to the safeties, which should open up some running game and short passing game.
    It will be interesting to see how it plays out. The season can't start soon enough.

    I don't know why I bother w/ you, it's clear you don't watch a lot of football.

    Tebow was not brought in just to run the WC, he will also play Sts and will play in the base O w/ Sanchez at QB.


    Putting all the other nonsense aside, if the jets expected him to start and acquired him to start why would they use him on STs? why would they ask him to gain 10 lbs to bulk up to 250? When has a starting QB ever been asked to bulk up to 250 lbs?

    You're right, we acquired hiom to take over for Sanchez but we are so stupid that we are using him as the up man on punts and are having him bulk up to 250 lbs. That's what anyone would do for a QB they expected to start

    LOL @ Anyone who thinks Tim Tebow can take the job from Mark Sanchez.

    Tim Tebow is one of the worst starting QBs in the history of ever. He's right up there with Ray Lucas.

    IF it happens, and not due to injury, I'd say weeks 9-12. If the Jets started out 2-6, maybe even 3-5 depending on Sanchez's play in those games. That would mean that Sanchez has blown his chance and Ryan doesn't want to give up on the season.

    2-6 isn't happening so I'm not concerned but I agree if we were 2-6 or 2-7 then maybe they make a move.

    If Sanchez doesn't play lights out from the get-go, he'll be watching Tebow from the bench in short order. The Jets open the season with 5 tough games: Pitt, Houston, and San Francisco plus division rivals Bills and Fins. The Tebots in the stands will be chanting their hero's name every time Sanchez throws an INC or gets sacked and will go absolutely ballistic if he throws an INT or three.

    1-4 got Orton benched for Timmy, and Jests fans have much higher expectations for their team than Donkeys fans had, so even 2-3 could get Sanchez pulled if he's NOT blameless in the losses, and the Jests could, indeed, start the season 2-6. Their weakness has always been their offense, and I'm NOT convinced that Sparano is going to build a great offense with what he's got on the Jests offense.

    Guys like you crack me up. Do you think everyone on the Jets staff was in a coma during the Bronco game last year? Do you think nobody noticed that Tebow couldn't complete a pass for the first 55 minutes? You think they watched that performance and thought --"Wow ... that's the guy we want running our offense!"?? The idea that he'll replace Sanchez is idiotic. EVERYONE knows he can't throw. You don't bring him in to replace a guy you drafted to be your franchise QB and just gave a multi million dollar extension. If that was the case, they would have brought in somebody who can throw the football.

    Denver had no choice but to play Tebow ... they made him a first round draft choice. what were they going to do ... play him on special teams? He should have been a third or fourth round pick. The Jets will use him the way he should have been used all along . Is it possible he comes in to relieve Sanchez if he's having a horrible game? .... sure. But you can bet your life Sanchez will be starting the following week. The only way Tebow starts a game at QB is if Sanchez loses both his arms in a farming accident.
