Your offense hasn't scored a single touchdown this preseason. If that wasn't enough pressure, about a week before the regular season your boss -- Jets owner Woody Johnson -- tells CNBC, "I think you can never have too much Tebow."
Tim Tebow is a quarterback. Sanchez is a quarterback. Therefore, more Tebow in the offense means less of Sanchez -- and this is coming from the person who signs the checks.
How should this make Sanchez feel?
The Jets have been reluctant this preseason to show all the Tebow packages on offense. But everyone from ownership, to head coach Rex Ryan, to offensive coordinator Tony Sparano seems very excited about it. There has to be some method to New York's super secrecy that will be unleashed in the regular season. Tebow's full role will be revealed Sept. 9 at home in a big division matchup against the Buffalo Bills.
But the internal excitement about Tebow has to impact Sanchez to some degree. You do not hear the same level of excitement and intrigue about what the starting quarterback brings to the offense this year. Tebow even has the owner of the Jets excited. Sanchez? Not so much.
Things like this could add up to a huge quarterback controversy during the regular season. For example, if Sanchez struggles and gets off to a 0-3 start, you have to wonder if ownership is thinking "you can never have too much Tebow."
