"I think he's handled everything well," Sanchez said of Tebow, whom he considers a friend. "He's really come in and fit in with our team. He's tried to be a team guy all the way. He understands that he's going to get opportunities to touch the football and when he does, he wants to make the most of them. ... If I were in his shoes, I don't know how I'd handle some of the stuff he goes through, but it's fun to talk about in the quarterbacks room."
Tebow is still undoubtedly the biggest personality on the team, and very possibly the most popular athlete in the entire New York sports scene. Whether his impact on the field matches all that hype, well, that's for opponents to find out.
From week to week, game by game.
"Whenever you get called on, you want to be able to go in there and be effective and efficient, and you want to help the team to try and get a victory," Tebow said. "You do that by creating first downs and hopefully being able to get in the end zone."
