The fact that Tim Tebow looks worse than Mark Sanchez in training camp shouldn’t come as a surprise. Last year during the Denver Broncos training camp Tebow was listed as the third quarterback. No one ever said the backup would surpass Sanchez in training camp.
What experts have said is Tebow’s capabilities as a leader and as an athlete are far better than the “Sanchize”. This trade is the type of transaction that will either help Sanchez realize much of his potential or prove that he is incapable of leading a team as their feature quarterback.
When comparing the two prospects one can see that Sanchez’s throwing mechanics are nearly perfect while Tebow has a long windup type pass which results in a slow release. The primary problem with Sanchez has been one thing: his decision making. His ability to respond to pressure, see the field, and throw to the best option/throw it away is what led to his 26 turnovers in 2011.
If the New York Jets‘ starting quarterback doesn’t produce, then of course the team will turn to Tim Tebow to lead the team.
