As the offseason continues to progress, everyone will eventually understand that Tim Tebow is not in New York with the intention of being a second-string quarterback. Tebow is a competitor, and the Jets knew that when they acquired him. At the moment, Rex Ryan says he plans to use Tebow in a number of different ways as a compliment to Mark Sanchez. Those who know Tebow are confident that he will head into training camp with a goal of making Sanchez the compliment to him. Former teammate Demaryius Thomas alluded to that during a recent interview with 790 The Zone in Atlanta.

“I ain’t going to say it was a good move (for the Jets), but I really don’t know,” Thomas said. “I feel like Tim can get better, but it is going to take some time because he’s gotta read the defenses and throwing patterns, but I feel like he thinks he can go out there and take Sanchez’s spot. I ain’t going to talk bad about Sanchez, but he’s not one of the best quarterbacks in the game, so I feel good about Tim going out there.”

Shortly after the trade was completed, reports surfaced that indicated Tebow chose the Jets over the Jaguars because he believes he can beat out Sanchez for the starting job. Former players like Amani Toomer have also said they don’t believe Sanchez will last an entire season with Tebow waiting behind him on the depth chart.

The more people talk about it, the more I get the impression that this is the season that will make or break Sanchez’s career.
