Because you never can get enough analysis of the Mark Sanchez-Tim Tebow quarterback battle -- and in a stunning display of self-control, we haven't written much on Sanchez-Tebow in the five days since we told you about Rex Ryan ripping Santonio Holmes for ripping the idea of a two-quarterback system -- we bring you President Barack Obama's read on the situation.
|Latest Jets News, Notes|
"I gotta tell you, I don't like the idea of a quarterback controversy at the start of a season, so if I was a Jets fan, I'd be pretty nervous," Obama told 97.1 The Fan in Columbus, Ohio (via the NY Post). "Sanchez is not Tom Brady yet, but he led them to the playoffs two years in a row. I think Tim Tebow seems to be a wonderful young man, and he's got just a great winning attitude. He really steps up when things count.
"But there's going to be a lot of tension in that situation, so it'll be interesting to see how it plays itself out."
He's right. It will be interesting to see the results of the competition between the two, and it will be interesting to see how long it actually lasts (and to see when exactly Tebow comes in to replace Sanchez). The president is right that there will be plenty of tension, especially if Santonio Holmes stays on the team. And it's nice to see a man who's in a rather fierce competition of his own take time away to satisfy his inner sports analyst.
Of course, there's also this.
I think Obama would have different opinion if he saw tapes of Tebow in Wildcat today in practice.— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 2, 2012
