Mark Sanchez may not like it, but the Jets didn’t acquire Tim Tebow with the intention of simply stashing him as an insurance policy. New offensive coordinator Tony Sparano intends to use him.

“I feel better about our quarterback situation than I ever have since I’ve been here. Tim Tebow is a good football player. Mark Sanchez is a good quarterback.”
Rex added that Sanchez is undoubtedly still the starter and that the Jets would have signed him to an extension with or without Tebow. He also said

The New York Jets transformed their indoor field house into a media center for the first time today to accommodate plague of media expected to meet the team's newest "backup" quarterback— Tim Tebow.

It was a bit of a curious spectacle and seemed a bit overzealous, given that Tebow is brought in to be a back-up rather that being given the starting gig right off the bat. That’s what Giants owner John Mara...
