“The things that we talk about can’t be a ‘sometimes’ thing,” Cavanaugh added. “It’s got to be a mentality that you have all the time. It’s not something that you just turn on and off. If you’re freewheeling on your own a bunch of the time, you may be winning, but at some point it’s going to bite you in the rear end… I think he understands that now.”

Cavanaugh feels the same as his QB, Sanchez, that he doesn’t need Tebow, or any backup quarterback to push him. He just needs to push himself to be more consistent.

“If you’re going to be a really good quarterback, you’re self-motivated,” Cavanaugh said. “I think he believes that in his heart. He’s as confident as anybody. He’s as confident as I am that he can be really really good in this league, win a lot of games and help us win a Super Bowl if he stays focused, if he sticks to the game plan, if he manages the game at the right time.

“He knows he has that ability,” Cavanaugh added. “So I don’t think he needs any outside forces to motivate him.”

    Bottom line, its time for Sanchez to grow up, man up and take the pilot’s seat of this Jets orginization
    Every sound bite, miked up session I hear of this guy sounds like a junior high school kid. He has the hopes and dreams of a multi-million dollar corporation, all his team mates and  millions of fans on his shoulders.  If you are the QB you are the leader of the team, if he can’t handle that step aside, because Teebow may not have his skills, but he definitely has the leadership capabilities.

      Not an unfair take.
