The New York Jets are going to be heading into a drama-filled season with the acquisition of Tim Tebow. According to guard Matt Slauson, the Jets will be running like two different teams as new offensive coordinator Tony Sparano will be running different plays and schemes under both Mark Sanchez and Tebow.
“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.
The Jets are trying to back to their winning ways after struggling last season. Before that, they landed in two straight AFC Championship games under young head coach, Rex Ryan, led by his young QB, Sanchez.
However, what really made this whole story was what Slauson said in his next quote.
“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.”
