Today’s minicamp practice was the first one open to the public, starring Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow. Being there firsthand, there wasn’t much one-sided cheering in favor of either one, although the weather early in the day may have held some of the crowd back a bit.
Today, Mark had only positive things to say about his new backup:
“Our team does a good job of pushing each other and Tim only adds to that,” he said. “We’re all learning from each other, he’s got a great attitude, he’s always smiling, he’s always excited and he works out very hard. He’s just a great fit for the team. But there’s other guys around the room and other coaches that you really want to look at, too.
He went on to say that all players push each other and teach each other, including Tim Tebow to him and vice versa.
Early in the day, Rex said that Tebow would only work with the first team in wildcat or special packages. He did end up taking two reps with the starters anyway, but don’t read into it much. Mark Sanchez was clearly the better performer today.
