The Jets’ biggest problem is still at the most important position on the field, so it’s hard to get too high about anything they’ve done so far. But that also doesn’t mean this draft will provide the answers.
Without saying it, the Jets said it. They don’t plan to contend for years. And it will take a lot more than Tampa Bay’s first-round pick to fix it. And now, by the way, you also have a gaping hole at cornerback.
“I just don’t know if it was the best situation for either of us, but you play with the cards you are dealt with and do the very best you can,” Sanchez said.
Tebow’s private coach unleashed a conspiracy theory Wednesday regarding the quarterback’s trade from Denver to New York, and managed to call Mark Sanchez “fragile-minded” in the process.
John Idzik acknowledged that he and Darrelle Revis recently had “a nice talk.” Other than that, the new New York Jets’ general manager divulged very little, particularly about the swirling trade rumors involving the star cornerback.
Sanchez is too busy learning the West Coast offense to be overly concerned with East Coast rumors.
The quarterback said Friday he’d show up with a “great attitude” despite reports that New York will eventually pull the plug on Tebow Time.
“If there’s going to be competition at the position, it’s not going to come from Tim Tebow,” Mark Sanchez’s tutor told USA Today.
“I do believe that he has the potential to lead a football team if you get the right pieces around him,” Warner said. “But the problem is that they’ve got a long way to go here in New York to get the right pieces around him.”
It’s amazing how good a former team can look once you’ve sampled someplace else, and how bad things can be when you’re there in the first place. Brandon Jacobs, Darrelle Revis and Tim Tebow must be feeling those emotions right now.
The backup quarterback who isn’t expected to remain on the Jets, but is still with the Jets, worked out Monday with a former Jets quarterback. Yeah, we’re confused too.
Unlike Darrelle Revis, Tim Tebow is planning to “voluntarily” — in the true sense of the word — attend the workouts in Florham Park, N.J., beginning on April 15, according to multiple reports.
“He’s doing an excellent job — the progress Mark has made over the past three weeks is definitely very positive,” Garcia said. “It shows that Mark is committed to bettering himself and getting himself more mentally prepared.”
It is Ryan’s responsibility to put the best players on the field. He can take advice from his assistants, but in the final analysis the most important thing that Ryan will do is determine who is out on the field.
“He’s on the roster, and he’ll get a chance to compete,” Ryan said of Tebow. “We’ll see how the offseason plays out, but right now Tim is on our roster.”
