For those of us who remember the saga of "Pantyhose" Joe Namath and "Captain America" Roger Staubach, we are beginning to see similarities arise between Mark Sanchez and Tebow.

Now that both have been covered by GQ, it is apparent that both are not only imbued with star-power but also overt sex appeal.

Will Sanchez take the Big Apple by storm like Joe Namath once did?

Will his exploits, on and off the field,  be balanced by the all-American "Superman" Tebow?


We hope so, because as much fun as they made Saturday, we're hoping for more exciting Sundays and Mondays.

And in case you haven't seen it, here's the clip of Staubach explaining that he likes sex, as much as Joe Namath, but just with one woman.

Makes you wonder what Tebow's future press conferences will be like after this last SEC media day.

Let the games begin!
