Here's some breaking news from the New York Post, regarding the relationship between New York Jets quarterbacks Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez:

“He’s been as advertised, as good of a guy, if not better, than anybody said,” Sanchez said. “So, he’s been a great addition so far. I’m thrilled to work with him.”

This is really compelling stuff here.

Obviously, it's not, but these type of "stories" will need to be gotten used to. The Tebow and Sanchez "storyline" and "conflict" is solely passive-aggressive and filled with insinuations.

When Tebow said he wanted to start for the Jets, the media exploded with allegations of Tebow being a home-wrecker. Well, of course he wants to start; he's a competitive NFL player who doesn't like being on the bench.

Any interaction between the two men will be glorified as "news" for the sole reason that they play in New York and one of them loves Jesus a whole lot. This "story"—Sanchez saying Tebow's a cool guy, something he probably has said constantly about his other, apparently less-important teammates—could be found all over prominent NFL/sports Web sites.

Can't sports media come together as one, and say, "HEY, maybe we could use our resources for better things, like the whole NFL concussions thing?"

Now, you may be saying, "Brendan, YOU'RE talking about this. Why, you're no better than anybody else!"

Well, I am. This is just a kind public service announcement to the rest of the world: Please stop caring about this story unless Sanchez attacks Tebow with a steak knife.
