Jets Offseason 2012: Tim Tebow, Mark Sanchez Make Jets Like 'Two Separate Teams,' Says OL Matt Slauson

The New York Jets will be like "two separate teams" depending on who's under center, according to left guard Matt Slauson.

"It's like we're going to be two separate teams, but as far as I know, Mark (Sanchez) is still going to be our guy," Slauson said of new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano's plan to deploy both Sanchez and new acquisition Tim Tebow.

"You guys will be really surprised by what Mark's going to do this year," Slauson said. "The way we're going to be running things plays right into Mark's strengths, running the ball. It'll be very similar to what we did in Rex's first two years, very much a style like that -- heavy run, heavy play action and whipping out a deep ball every now and again. That's all the stuff Mark does really well."

Coach Rex Ryan maintained that Sanchez will be the team's starter, and Tebow will be used to spell him during certain situations.
