SB Nation's very own Ryan Van Bibber has put together a list of questions, one for each NFL team. So what did he have to say about the Jets?
As much as we like to continue to repeat that 'everything is going to be OK' we simply don't know. This is a big question mark for the Jets this year, perhaps one of the biggest questions we have faced in years. Tim Tebow is not your usual back-up quarterback, this is the cold hard truth of the matter. If Sanchez does start to struggle, then there will be calls for Tim Tebow to start, maybe not from you and maybe not from me but there will be.
I don't think that a strict policy of Mark Sanchez being a 80 yard QB and Tebow being the final 20 yard QB is ever going to work. I also don't believe that the Jets would ever consider this as a sustainable offensive philosophy. I have always said and I will continue to say that the Jets will play the hot hand. If Sanchez is cruising and moving the football, I can't imagine as soon as they hit the 20 yard line he will be removed. If Sanchez is struggling and Tebow is moving the chains, he'll remain in the game.
This question is going to continue to pop up throughout training camp and throughout the season and I think this is one of the main reasons why so many people were against the Tebow trade. Do I think Sanchez and Tebow are as concerned with this as the media and we are? no I honestly don't but we'll have to keep answering the questions.
What are your thoughts? post them up below as usual but also head over to the article on the NFL homepage of SB Nation to see what other NFL fans are saying about their question and ours.
