Originally written September 05, 2012 on New York Sports-Kings:
When Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets, many people wondered why they did. They also wondered how Mark Sanchez would handle it. Sanchez has handled this situation, like a professional. He hasn’t taken any cheap shots at Tebow, and he has embraced the situation. Well, at least it seems. According to Santonio Holmes, Sanchez was floored by the trade. “I think since Day 1, it was a focus that kind of rattled him a little,” the veteran wide receiver said. “I use that word only to say that, ‘Wow, how did this happen?’ Those were words that came out of his mouth.” Sanchez had reason to be worried; after all he was coming off of his worst season as a pro quarterback. Then, there was Tim Tebow, who saved the Denver Broncos season. Holmes said Sanchez shared that sentiment in a conversation they had in late March, the day the Jets stunned the league by acquiring Tebow. That Sanchez confided in Holmes is ironic, considering they barely spoke to each over the final 12 weeks last season — a strained relationship that has been repaired, according to both players. As a fan looking at the situation, I am sure he was floored, do you blame him? They just brought in someone who could possibly take his job. However, Sanchez has handled it like a champ. By “it” I mean Tebowmania and all the attention Tebow gets. All the experience with the drama could end up helping Sanchez when it comes to the regular season. There will be times when fans chant “Tebow! Tebow!” The important thing is how Sanchez will handle it when it happens.
