Woody Johnson: Sanchez is fine, Tebow is staying

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York Jets' owner Woody Johnson thinks Mark Sanchez is doing just fine, and sees no reason why Tim Tebow won't stay with the Jets for the next three seasons.

New York Jets' owner Woody Johnson created the Mark Sanchez-Tim Tebow mess that the franchise is currently in. Apparently, even with the team floundering, Sanchez having the lowest completion percentage (48.4 percent) in the league, and Tebow seemingly not really having a role, Johnson seems to think everything is just fine.

Johnson told CNBC on Wednesday that Sanchez "really is that good" and that Tebow will "be with us for three years," which is the length of his contract.

So, apparently the Jets owner has his head in the sand when it comes to the state of his football team.

Here is part of what Johnson said about Sanchez:

"I see the same things in Mark Sanchez (as) when I first met him. He's still a young quarterback ... (Quarterback) is probably the most difficult position athletically and mentally that there is in all of sports."

That, of course, ignores the fact that that there are 8-10 first- and second-year quarterbacks already playing at a much higher level than Sanchez.

Here is what Johnson said about Tebow's future with the team:

"Are we going to keep Tebow? Absolutely. He'll be with us for three years ... I think he's going to be a real valuable asset in terms of helping us win games."

So, there you go Jets' fans. Your owner thinks everything is wonderful.
