Daily look at Tim Tebow in Jets training camp

CORTLAND, N.Y. (AP) - A look at Tim Tebow's day at New York Jets training camp:

---

TEBOW TIME: Tebow ran the second-team offense Thursday in the Jets' first goal-line drills of camp, but did not line up as the punt protector - as he has all camp - during special teams drills. He instead remained with the quarterbacks group.

HOW'D HE DO: Coach Rex Ryan called it Tebow's "best day of camp," particularly because of the "live" action at the goal line that allowed the quarterback to shine. The Jets gave a small glimpse into how they might use Tebow as he led the team to three scores on four tries in goal-line drills. On one wildcat-style play, Tebow took a snap from the shotgun, quickly faked a handoff to Joe McKnight and zipped into the end zone for a score.

TEBOWMANIA: President Barack Obama is no fan of the Jets having Tebow on their roster, telling 97.1 The Fan during a campaign event in Ohio: "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 adds that while "Sanchez is not Tom Brady yet," and Tebow "seems to be a wonderful young man," the Jets are going to have "a lot of tension in that situation."

TALKING TEBOW: "It's been pretty similar, but, you know, Tim brings a lot - of fans and media. It's like a cult following, you know? You'd think the Grateful Dead are playing here or something. It's crazy." - Sanchez on how this training camp compares to 2010 when the team was the subject of HBO's "Hard Knocks."
