Mark Sanchez Criticizes New York Jets for Tim Tebow Situation

Tim Tebow with Mark Sanchez

Phil Sears – USA TODAY Sports

When Tim Tebow was traded to the New York Jets last season the NFL knew that the spotlight on him would brighten, but no one in the world could imagine the annoying circus that would ensue. Tebow did not start a single game in his inaugural year with the Jets and reports of him being lied to by the organization plagued his career in The Big Apple.

To his credit, Mark Sanchez handled the saga pretty well as he had plenty of reason to kick and storm about the meaningless coverage that Tebow garnered. Sanchez was the starter since day one, however the quarterback was treated like a side-show compared the punt team captain. As I alluded to, the quarterback did handle the Tebow drama pretty well, but the time has come where Sanchez can’t take it anymore.

Sanchez spoke of the supposed QB competition on FOX Sports Radio’s “Petros and Money Show”, saying: “I just don’t know if it was the best situation for either of us” and then practically begged for his release from the club when talking about the coverage from media outlets. The Jets quarterback said “they had to get permission to go. You [Jets] can avoid that stuff on your own if you like” — that is a dagger if I have ever seen one.


The Jets are in no position to have their quarterback upset as the division has gotten much better and New York was a measly 6-10 last season. This begs the question, are the Jets the worst-run franchise in the history of professional sports?

Brandon Marshall Tells Rich Eisen He Hasn't Spoken To Jay Cutler

During a recent appearance on ' The Rich Eisen Show', former Chicago Bears and current New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall was asked about his relationship with his old quarterback, Jay Cutler. Marshall, who has zero chill, replied that he had not spoken to Cutler in "two years." Naturally, Eisen was shocked and mentioned that they were teammates just a season ago. Marshall essentially confirmed that they were not talking off the field during his last year in Chicago, but ultimately wished Cutler well.
