One person we never hear from is a very quiet guy. He was quiet and unassuming as a player, a great player, and now he is quiet and unassuming too. Now he is a quiet and unassuming hall of fame inductee, the great Curtis Martin. When approached at a Long Island grocery store near his home, Curtis took a different take than others, most of all Joe Namath.

“Tebow will be good for Mark; he’ll bring the best out of him,” Martin told ESPNNewYork.com Saturday, adding that he has been stopped by many Jets fans wanting to know his take on the trade that has everyone buzzing. “Competition is a good thing. No matter who you are, you need competition.”

The Jets have tried to convince us this is not a QB competition, but Tebow will see time in various packages, which leads most of us to believe that there will eventually be a QB competition.

Martin agreed, saying “it’s hard not to have a controversy with two high-profile guys like Sanchez and Tim Tebow.” But he expressed confidence the team and the two players will manage the distractions.

“I like Tebow,” Martin said. “Certain players have the ability to get things done, and he’s definitely one of those guys. I don’t know how he gets it done, but he finds a way. There’s a mystique about Tim Tebow. Somehow, he gets it done.”
