Mark Sanchez-Tim Tebow overanalysis, Take II

Print

Thursday was the second of the New York Jets' OTAs that was open to the media. So it's time for another game of Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow overanalysis!

Things weren't quite as dramatic this time around, and we doubt that Sanchez's agent will talk trash afterwards. But we do have some final stats from Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News.

Debate: NFL's best 'Big Three'
Matt Schaub leads a terrific trio in Houston, with Andre 
Johnson and Arian Foster. Does any other "Big Three" compare? More ...

Sanchez finished 7-for-14 in 11-on-11 drills -- he also took two sacks. Tebow went 1-for-4 with a rushing attempt in eight snaps. Dustin Keller dropped a potential 25-yard touchdown.

Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano said after the session that Sanchez has put in the most amount of work this offseason with regard to learning the new offense.

"Which he should," Sparano added.

Mehta breaks down the numbers in far more detail than you could ever want. Our big takeaway is that Greg McElroy -- not Tebow -- ran the second team's two-minute drill.

The Jets have said this isn't a quarterback competition. They are not dividing up the snaps evenly, like the coaches are in Seattle, Miami and Arizona.

Sanchez is their guy ... for now.
