If you don't remember it, you've seen replays of it. "It" being then-Florida quarterback Tim Tebow's emotional rant after being upset by Mississippi on Sept. 27, 2008.
"You have never seen any player in the entire country play as hard as I will play the rest of the season. You will never see someone push the rest of the team as hard as I will push everybody the rest of the season," Tebow vehemently pledged. "You will never see a team play harder than we will the rest of the season."
And of course: "God bless."
Regardless of what you think of Tebow, the raw emotion of it all was moving in some sort of way.
Not that Sanchez has never done it or felt that way, but going all Tebow doesn't seem like his M.O.
Almost any time a coach is the face of the franchise, there is a void of some sort at quarterback. When the coach publicly blasts the quarterback for doing "the stupidest thing in football history," as Ryan did after Sanchez called a bad timeout Sunday in New York's loss to the Patriots, the starch is further taken out of the quarterback's fabric.
Sanchez also is on a plateau of inconsistency that's prompted a louder chorus of questions this season as to how good or bad he is. He's 4-2 in the playoffs and has made plays to win games when it matters -- except in two conference championships. He's got five touchdown passes and just three interceptions in the postseason.
That's pretty darn good in just two NFL seasons.
However, when Ryan and offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer decided to give the reins to Sanchez in the passing game this season, it backfired. New York went back to its run-first philosophy in the midst of a 2-3 start. After three consecutive wins all seemed good, that is until Sanchez threw two interceptions and looked out of sorts at times in Sunday's 37-16 loss to New England.
Is he good enough?
To answer a question with a question: Would those who want more rather have Tebow instead of Sanchez?
Though Sanchez might not galvanize a fanbase or be a leader in the same manner as Tebow, he's won. The question of whether he's going to improve enough to get the Jets to the Super Bowl is really the legitimate concern, but since we're comparing, look at the two other starting quarterbacks who were first-rounders in Sanchez's draft class.
Darlington: Fox adapts to Tebow
Detroit's Matthew Stafford and Tampa Bay's Josh Freeman seem to be stalling a bit after showing promise. Excuses can be made for all three quarterbacks, who have made their teams better more than worse, but have any of them been good enough at the halfway point of this season to make you think they can lead their teams to the playoffs?
Maybe, just maybe, things center on expectations.
Taking things a step further, should Denver upset New York, each team will be at 5-5.
One franchise will be thrilled, the other in a state of chaos.
While Tebow has struggled playing the position -- again, in the orthodox sense -- his teammates have stepped up their games. While not diminishing the personal pride and competitiveness of each of those players, that tends to happen when people feel they have a chance to succeed.
It didn't happen in Denver when Orton was starting. It's happening with Tebow.
