Going into preseason and even during the first few weeks of training camp, all that was said about the quarterbacks was that Mark Sanchez was going to be the starter, while Tim Tebow would be his backup.
As time went on, more and more details regarding Tim Tebow's role were released. He would be the Jets' main weapon when it came to running the Wildcat, and he would see some time on special teams.
Now through the first preseason game, it seems like the Jets and their fans may not have to worry about the whole Sanchez-Tebow battle that most people (even myself) have deemed inevitable.
On Friday night when Sanchez was doing a sideline interview, he spoke about how he changed the way he prepared for the upcoming season and how he was excited for 2012 with the Jets; the New York Post later came out with a story describing Sanchez's change to his regimen.
When comparing how the two played on Friday night and think about their roles within the team at large, it looks like Sanchez will do well in 2012 and won't lose his spot. Although it was just preseason, he was making the right decisions, taking risks when warranted and making plays.
Meanwhile, Tim Tebow had a solid day where he made some plays on his feet, and not many with his arm, and that is why the Jets will have him in the wildcat. Tebow is a guy who is better on his feet who just happens to have a good arm but isn't really starting-quarterback material.
So, for all you Sanchez fans, you can take a deep breath and relax for a little bit. Sorry Tebow fans, your man won't be taking over quite yet.
