NFL.COM on Tebow/Sanchez

Elliot Harrison of, takes a look at the most compelling quarterback competitions in the league for 2012, including the very battle we know right here in NY.

Here is the excerpt regarding Tebow v. Sanchez:

In the interest of full disclosure, this Sanchez-Tebow stuff probably does not constitute a quarterback battle per se — at least not yet. Controversy? Yes. Fight for the top of the depth chart? No.  Yet, head coach Rex Ryan’s man crush on Tebow carries a 20-play attachment, at least that’s the word emanating from the New York Jets. Basically, the club plans to use Tebow’s versatility 1/3 of the time the offense is on the field.  If New York — team and city — wants Sanchez to climb the next rung in his development as a quarterback, it’s going to be a bit more challenging with 20 plays going Tebowmania’s way. This quarterback drama will play out well into the season, but for now, Sanchez is the clear No. 1 on the depth chart.  Advantage: Overblown media circus.

Nice to see a media person calling this as it is.  This is probably because he is not in New York, as it is not in the NY media’s DNA to back off this story.
