Originally written June 28, 2012 on Down and Distance:
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. For more news: Follow us on twitter: @DownAndDistance
