Don't fret, Sanchez fans. Your boy from USC will remain the New York Jets' starting quarterback for next season, and there should be no fear of Tebowmania invading the new quarterback position. 

One thing that Tebow has that helps him stand out among the rest of the NFL quarterbacks is a consistently positive attitude. If Tebow can keep that up, while supporting Sanchez and the Jets, then he will be an impact on the sidelines and will bring an upbeat energy to a squad that has been deemed a "circus" for the past few years.

Tebowmania might have shocked NFL fans last season when he helped lead the Broncos past the Pittsburgh Steelers during the AFC wild-card game. It was a crazy game and in 11 seconds it became the fastest ending to an overtime in NFL history. However, Sanchez has playoff experience himself.

In his three years with New York, Sanchez made his way to two AFC title game with his gang in green. 

Despite signing Tim Tebow, the Jets also extended Sanchez's contract for three more years, implying that this is the guy they're confident with starting. 

Tebow's top priority should be supporting Sanchez and the rest of the Jets. He brings an increasingly positive outlook and expressed to the media how "excited" he was to be coming to New York to play football.

Tim Tebow needs to be ready to take the field at any time, but must also be fine with the fact that he might not see many snaps this upcoming season. The former Florida Gator just needs to stay in shape, support his team and have confidence that one day it will again be his time to shine.
