Former Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly is not sold on the Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez duo of the New York Jets. In fact, Kelly see chaos on the horizon for the Jets.
“I gotta be honest: I don’t know what (the New York Jets) really were thinking,” Kelly told NFL Network’s “Total Access” on Thursday. “Mark Sanchez is a quarterback who’s going to be sitting there every single game if he plays bad, and No. 1, you know Jets fans — they’re going to start booing.”
“I think (there’s) a lot of pressure on Sanchez to not only start off hot — but continue game after game after game playing steady,” Kelly said. “If he doesn’t, you know you’re going to hear the boo birds. People want Tim Tebow in there. I like them both. I thought Sanchez was a very good quarterback coming on. If I was a general manager or president or owner of the team, I wouldn’t have done that (trade) unless I got rid of Sanchez. But I think he’s a good enough quarterback to be there.
“Tim Tebow’s a great athlete who’s going to be a big plus for somebody. But in New York? I’m not sure.”
Kelly, who still has ties with the Buffalo Bills, further admitted, ”I hope there’s so much turmoil during (Jets) training camp.”
The New York Jets open week one at home against the Buffalo Bills. It will certainly be interesting to see what happens with the quarterback situation if the Jets lose week one, especially if they get blown out.
In fact, the Jets start their season with a difficult five game stretch. During the first five weeks the Jets play vs Buffalo, at Pittsburgh, at Miami, vs San Francisco and vs Houston.
Personally, I think the Jets will start their season 1-4 with their only win coming at Miami and by the end of the five game stretch fans will be clamoring for Tim Tebow to start. I will have more on my AFC East outlook later in the summer.

If you ask Shaquille O'Neal, all that talk about Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez not coexisting peacefully together is a load of bunk. In fact, Shaq is is so confident that the two competing quarterbacks can get along, the former NBA star thinks there is a New York Jets Super Bowl appearance in their future together.
Just think peas-in-a-pod or Kobe and Shaq.
Legendary Buffalo Bills quarterback Jim Kelly does not understand why the Jets brought in Tim Tebow, but he's glad they did.
Kelly, who starred in Buffalo from 1986-1996, said he is wishing for "so much turmoil in training camp" that all of a sudden the Jets' locker room "is coming apart."

Like many people, former Buffalo Bills great Jim Kelly doesn’t know what the New York Jets were thinking when they acquired Tim Tebow from the Broncos.
“I gotta be honest: I don’t know what (the New York Jets) really were thinking,” Kelly told NFL Network’s “Total Access” on Thursday, per NFL.com. “Mark Sanchez is a quarterback who’s going to be sitting...
It has been more than three months since the Jets acquired Tim Tebow from the Broncos, and the critics have for the most part quieted down. Once training camp begins, all eyes will be on New York with people wondering what role Tebow will have in the Jets offense and whether or not the quarterback situation will become a distraction for the rest of the team. But for now, we simply...
Tim Tebow can do just about anything and turn it into news. That should be rephrased. Tim Tebow can do just about anything and we turn it into news. We’re all guilty, as much as we want to blame the “large” news providers. Everything he does generates a discussion. Such is the life of someone in the spotlight that generates so much love, but equal amounts of hate.
The anemic Jets offense can bear much of the blame for a 2011 season that ended without a trip to the playoffs. Mark Sanchez will enter his 4th NFL season in what many deem to be a make or break year (especially with Tim Almighty breathing down his neck). The Jets passing game ranked 21st last season but should get a shot in the arm with the addition of WR Stephen Hill (2nd round...
