(NEW YORK) — As the New York Jets’ season of turmoil continues, quarterback Mark Sanchez continues to say that he does not feel “threatened” by the presence of back up quarterback Tim Tebow.
The Jets are 2-2 to begin the 2012 season and many fans are calling for a quarterback change. Sanchez has struggled mightily during the past three games.
“I don’t feel threatened to lose my job at all,” Sanchez said. “It’s no different, whether it’s Tim or Mark Brunell or Kellen Clemens. It doesn’t change. I’m really not worried at all.”
Head coach Rex Ryan has continued to say that Sanchez’ job is safe.
Sanchez is currently last in the league among quarterbacks with a 49.2 completion percentage, and faces arguably his toughest test of the season when the Jets take on the Houston Texans and their top-ranked defense on Monday night. The Jets’ offense will be without their number-one playmaker for the remainder of the season, wide receiver Santonio Holmes.
Tebow is also facing questions about his role thus far in the season. He denies reports that he is frustrated with his role, which is smaller than many people expected.
