Amani Toomer Prefers Tim Tebow Over Mark Sanchez

When asked duirng a Saturday radio appearance who he would he would chose if he were starting a franchise today, given the option between Tim Tebow and Mark Sanchez, former New York Giant wide receiver Amani Toomer said he would chose Tebow.

"[Tebow] and Sanchez are both not great quarterbacks," Toomer said. "The only reason why I'd say Tebow is because we've seen what Sanchez can do. This is his third year. Tebow hasn't even started for a whole season. Give the kid an opportunity to prove himself a little bit more and I think he can ... work on his technique."

Toomer later indicated that his choice is less of a testament to Tebow as it is an inditement on Sanchez.

"I'm not a huge Tebow supporter, but when you're going against Sanchez, it's not that big of a curve."

These responses of Toomer were on a radio show he co-hosts on ESPN New York 1050.

Rob Ryan Attacks Tim Tebow's 'College Football' Style In 17-13 Win Over The Jets

Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow scored a 20-yard rushing touchdown in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter on Thursday night to secure a thrilling come-from-behind win over the New York Jets at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colo.

Cowboys defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was not impressed.

Maybe it's because he doesn't like the current "Tebowing" craze, one that has NFL fans across the globe snapping photographs of themselves in deep prayer against unusual and often hilarious backgrounds. Or perhaps he has a certain disdain for the city of Denver.

Could it simply be sympathy for his brother Rex, who coached "Gang Green" to a 5-5 start to the 2011-12 season? Actually, it may be none of the above.

He just doesn't like college football.

"I don't like it because it's college football. We're getting a lot of two tight ends blocking for empty sets. Who would have ever thought that? This is the NFL. Those teams don't win."

Following Thursday's 17-13 loss on the road, the Jets have put themselves in a situation where every game is a "must win," starting against the Buffalo Bills on Nov. 27 at home.

Jets-Broncos Final Score: Tim Tebow Leads Denver To 17-13 Win Over New York

Tim Tebow did it again Thursday night, leading a 95-yard touchdown drive in the closing minutes to give the Denver Broncos a 17-13 victory over the New York Jets at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colo.

New York appeared to have taken control with its opening drive in the fourth frame. Quarterback Mark Sanchez took his team 42-yards downfield to set up a successful 45-yard field goal from Nick Folk to make it 13-10 in favor of the Jets.

It wouldn't last.

Tebow drove the Broncos 95 yards in 12 plays, ending the drive with a 20-yard scramble for a game-winning touchdown with 58 seconds to play.

The Jets are now 5-5 and have lost two games in four days. The Broncos are also 5-5, but are 4-1 since Tebow took over at quarterback.

Jets Vs. Broncos Score: New York And Denver Tied 10-10 End Of Third Quarter

The New York Jets looked like they were about to take control in the opening minutes of the third quarter on Thursday night against the Denver Broncos in Mile High Stadium.

"Gang Green" quarterback Mark Sanchez drove his team downfield for 80 yards across eight plays (4:03), only to find the end zone following a fumble recovery on the one yard line. Nick Folk was on the money to make it 10-3 in favor of New York.

And that was it from the Jets offense for the remainder of the quarter.

Not that Denver's offense was lighting up the scoreboard, but it didn't need to. Broncos cornerback Andre Goodman intercepted Sanchez and ran it back for a 26-yard touchdown. Matt Prater split the uprights to make it 10-all.

New York was stripped of the football in the ensuing kickoff return, giving them two turnovers in a span of 10 seconds. Fortunately for the Jets, Denver was unable to capitalize on the mistake and were eventually forced to punt.

With 15 minutes left to play, this is still anyone's game.


Jets Vs. Broncos Score: New York and Denver Tied 3-3 End Of First Half

Well, there isn't much negative to say about the New York Jets as they head into the half against the Denver Broncos on Thursday night at Colorado's Mile High Stadium.

Unfortunately, there isn't much positive to say, either.

That's because "Gang Green" has been on the field for 30 minutes and the best they could do was a field goal. Luckily for them, that's all "Orange Crush" was able to muster up as well.

New York was down 0-3 heading into the second quarter, but Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez was able to get his team 32 yards downfield to put Nick Folk within field goal range. 21 yards later and they're tied at three apiece.

Both teams struggled offensively in the second quarter, with the longest drive totaling 4:05. Folk tried to send one in from long distance to close out the half, but his 61-yard field goal was no good and the game remains deadlocked at 3-3.


Jets Vs. Broncos Score: Denver Leads New York 3-0 End Of First Quarter

The New York Jets flew into Mile High Stadium to battle the Denver Broncos on Thursday night to try and rebound from last Sunday's beatdown by the New England Patriots.

They're not off to a good start.

After 15 minutes of play, "Gang Green" trails "Orange Crush" by a score of 3-0. New York actually won the coin toss, but deferred to Denver, who were unable to do much on the opening drive, despite 5:11 of possession. The Jets did even worse on their first time out, giving back the ball in less than two minutes.

That enabled the Broncos to move the ball down field for Matt Prater, who split the uprights from 37 yards out to put them up by three.

So far, it's all they need.

Jets have the ball to start the second and are moving downfield, but will they be able to find the end zone?

Stay tuned.
