According to Jenny Vrentas of the Newark Star-Ledger, former New York Jets great Joe Namath was at the Gridiron Gala on Tuesday evening and he stated that he believes that  Mark Sanchez is a better quarterback then Tim tebow.

Namath said that “there’s no doubt about it” that Sanchez is better than Tebow.

I’d have to say that I disagree with Namath. I do believe Sanchez throws the ball better, but Tebow have proven that he can throw it well enough to lead a team to the playoffs and I expect him to only continue to get better as he works on his mechanics.
