Mark Sanchez OK With Tebow Wildcat Offense

The New York Jets unveiled their Tim Tebow-led Wildcat goal-line offense at practice Thursday. That, of course, led reporters to ask starting quarterback Mark Sanchez to be asked inevitable questions about how we will feel when he is lifted from the game for Tebow in those red-zone situations.

"We have got to get in the end zone, I don’t care (if I am the one playing or not). Whatever we have to do and Coach Sparano is going to be the judge there on what exactly he wants," Sanchez said. "If that is what he wants and that is what puts it in the end zone, fine. We can drive it 99 yards and (Tebow) can run it in."

Sanchez said that what mattered was that the Jets were in the "business of winning."

"(He can be a weapon) all over the field, (but on the) goal line especially. If it is him one-on-one with a defender and a tackler, my money is on Tim. He can really run the ball, he has great vision, and he has got this will about him to put it in the end zone. That is going to help our team," Sanchez said.

Of course, all of this is easy for Sanchez to say in theory. We just have to wait and see how he reacts when it actually happens
