Mark Sanchez Questions Why Jets’ Traded For Tim Tebow
Mark Sanchez seems like a guy who can see the writing on the wall, and he’s not holding back any longer. Last season when Tim Tebow was initially acquired to back up Sanchez, the quarterback joked that “it was all to sale seats man.”
Sanchez is no longer joking around, and amid rumors of a feud between the two counterparts, Sanchez finally questioned why the Jets made the move to trade for Tebow while on FOXSports Radio’s Petros and Money show.
“I just don’t know if it was the best situation for either of us really, but you kind of play with the cards you’re dealt and do the very best you can,”
“(We) really underachieved as a team, so we’re looking to change that this year. And we’re optimistic about it, and we trust that the front office will put us in a good position, and we’ll have a good year.”
Sanchez was then asked if ESPN and other networks that felt the need to push for Tebow press were the problem as well.
“Well, I think part of that, too, (is) ESPN didn’t necessarily sneak in overnight at our training camp. You have to get permission to go,” Sanchez said. “So you can avoid that stuff on your own, if you’d like, in my opinion.
“But he’s a popular guy, and people gravitate toward the guy. He’s a special person and a heck of a competitor, so people want to know what’s going on. But that’s really my pieae on that, that’s all I got on that.”
Kudos to Sanchez for finally admitting that he felt sabotaged.
