Apparently Tim Tebow has not looked sharp lately during Jets OTAs. He threw two picks while Sanchez looked very sharp. This is all well and good for the New York Jets, but it is also well and good for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
The Jaguars tried to trade a fourth round pick to the Denver Broncos for Tebow before the draft. Tebow ultimately went to the Jets, while Shahid Khan buried his face in his hands due to his failure to get the immensely popular Florida Gator.
While Tebow will make headlines across the nation for anything that happens in relation to him (currently a potential matchup with Lolo Jones?) ranging from talking to fans to looking at a puppy, the distraction that is Tebow does not do anything positive for the Jaguars and apparently isn’t doing much good for the Jets.
The Jets’ Sanchez has consistently looked good in practice, so we can’t be certain if his sharp performances thus far are a result of the competition between Tebow and himself or are just his practice norm. The true competition will come during the preseason and regular season if Sanchez falters.
But so longer as Tebow is tossing picks, it will be difficult for Sanchez to lose his spot to the once-potential Jaguar.
