Tim Tebow Is Better Than Mark Sanchez, at Least According to Other NFL Players

Arguably the most intriguing storyline heading into the 2012 NFL regular season is the manner in which the New York Jets will handle their quarterback situation. 

The team acquired Tim Tebow, the polarizing former Broncos hero, this offseason, and it came on the heels of extending the contract of incumbent starter Mark Sanchez

The plan, at least as we understand it currently, is for Tebow to own a situational role in the New York offense, and one that would include snaps in a Wildcat-like package.

And although New York remains committed to Sanchez as the starter, it was their new backup—and not Sanchez—who cracked the list of the Top 100 NFL Players, as voted on by NFL players league-wide. 

What's it all mean? Well, that's for you to decide. Keep in mind, last year's list (which was also voted on by the players) did not include Eli Manning. Wonder if he'll make it this year?

So far, we've only seen the first 10 selections (the NFL Network, who produces the series, will continue to unveil the list over the course of several weeks), but already it's generating debate amongst NFL fans everywhere. Tebow remains a hot-button issue, and so too was the inclusion of John Kuhn, the Packers fullback, in the top 100.

It's safe to assume that a few more head-scratchers will arise as the list is further revealed, but for now, New York City already has one major topic of conversation. 

What we seems to know based off of the list is that, at least as his NFL player brethren sees it: Tebow 1, Sanchez 0.
