It seems as though a lot of former Jets still love talking about their old team. I guess when the media is obsessed by a certain angle, it doesn't matter where these guys go, they are always going to be asked about it. Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow, you might be getting a little tired of this now but hey, don't shoot the messenger right:
"I think Tebow will definitely be a part of that first 15 plays, because he's a guy you're going to have to get on the field. He makes plays," Tomlinson said. "Coaches always want to get the guys that make plays on the field. And so he's going to be a part of that first 15. Mark just has to understand that this is a role that Tebow plays, every single game, he's going to get his plays."
I don't think there is a more controversial subject in New York right now, even Dwight Howards will he, won't he to the Nets isn't a patch on this. My thought on the whole thing is as simple as it was on day one, you play the hot hand. If Sanchez is moving the chains and putting together nice drives, you leave Tebow on the bench. If the situation calls for a bit of wilcat action or you want to put Tebow in as a HB or as a wildcat QB because you're not moving the chains, go ahead.
It should all come down to opponent, and game situations.
