We all know the budding situation at QB. You have the incumbent, Mark Sanchez, and the famous backup, who needs no introduction. How’s it going to work? Will there be a controversy? For now, both guys are saying all of the right things. Tebow praised Mark, and Mark praised Tebow. Tebow, at media access yesterday, didn’t have a lot to say about his role in the upcoming season.

“Right now, we’re just putting in the offense and installing the offense and just trying to learn that,” Tebow said. “I’m sure that will take a little while. … That’s our main focus right now. It’s not necessarily special situations or anything like that.”

He’s also not worried that their will be a quarterback controversy.

“We just have a good friendship and really (have to) not let outside circumstances get in the way of our friendship,” Tebow said. “That’s the cool thing about being friends… is we can talk. We got an open relationship.” “We’re trying to push each other to get better and help each other to get better,” he added. “I think we’re on the same page and we want each other to do well.”

He said he’s always team first, and that he is game for anything the team wants him to do.

He also said he doesn’t think of it as two offenses, it’s “the Jets offense”.  He wants to be the best he can be, and that he says is all he wants.
