  Warren Sapp summed up perfectly the New York Jets dual quarterback experiment with Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, when he said, “Nothing with two heads can survive on God’s green earth.” The Jets brought an end to that particular quarterback saga when they cut Tebow earlier this week, and according to a story via USA Today Sports, Sanchez told reporters that the internal competition made it virtually impossible for the two men to foster a friendship. “It’s just hard when you’re competing like that. There’s just a professionalism about it,” Sanchez said Thursday in his first meeting with reporters since Tebow was released by the New York Jets on Monday. “You don’t get too close to guys like that. You’re professional, and you’re cool. “If the guy’s got a flat tire on the side of the road, I’m going to stop, I’m not going to blow by him. But at the same time, I’m not sending him gifts on his birthday.” Tebow may be gone but that doesn’t mean Sanchez has regained his undisputed status as the Jets starting quarterback. The team has five quaterbacks on the roster including second round draft pick Geno Smith, who will be Sanchez’s stiffest competition if he isn’t traded, but the former USC signal caller claims that he’ll still do what he can to help the rookie. “Yeah, if he’s got a question, of course I’m not going to be a jerk,” Sanchez said. “I’ve heard plenty of stories about guys like that. They come ask you a read on a (play) and they say, ‘Hey, go look at your book.’ Well, yeah, go look at your book, but if we’re on the field, it’s not like you can run in and look at your book. ” ‘Hey, man, you’re reading the flat defender, high-low him. Curl-flat. Whatever.’ So what? I don’t think that’s going to hurt my chances of playing.” I can’t wait for the second season of the Jets soap opera to begin.
