    Just curious: why doesn't the NBA re-seed in the playoffs like the NHL does? What's the argument against it?

    Westhoff says that in what they were asking for, Sanchez was better than Tebow. Therefore no reason for Mark to be affected by TT's presence

    3:27PM EDT

  • Rich Cimini

    Mike Westhoff on ESPNNY 98.7 FM: Says Sanchez shouldn't have been rattled by Tebow's presence because he was clearly better QB. #Jets

    3:27PM EDT

  • Brian Costello

    Westhoff says it wasn't even close in practice. Sanchez was better than Tebow for what the Jets wanted to do. He's on 98.7 right now.

    This is Westhoff speaking on 98.7 FM, I should say.

    Here's a fun fact: We had Tim Tebow stories in the Daily News on 21 of the 23 days of training camp.

    Favorite Tebow moment? A. Shirtless through the rain B. Ball bounces off helmet C. Power run between the tackles (all of them.)

    Tebow didn't line up as a QB on 19 of his 77 snaps last season. Backfield (8 plays), wide (6 plays), slot (5 plays): @ESPNStatsInfo. #Jets

    9:24AM EDT

  • Rich Cimini

    #Jets averaged 3.8 yards/play with Tebow on field, 4.7 yards with him off field, per @ESPNStatsInfo.

    9:21AM EDT

  • Rich Cimini

    My column on Tebow will be posted shortly. IMO, the Tebow trade was the worst personnel move in team history. #Jets

    9:14AM EDT

  • Rich Cimini

    Earlier in offseason, #Jets gave Tebow's agent permission to seek trade. Multiple tms called, asked if he'd switch pos's. Doesn't want to.

    Best quote on Tebow situation came from now-retired special teams coach Mike Westhoff: "It was an absolute mess." #Jets

    9:04AM EDT

    Tebow appeared in only 77 offensive snaps, per @ESPNStatsInfo. Heck of a personal protector, though -- 59 snaps on special teams. #Jets
