HollywoodLife.com spoke to several inside sources at the New York Jets who tell us that Tim’s teammates are completely ‘torn’ as to how they feel about the University of Florida grad joining their team, because they feel like there can’t be two starring quarterbacks!
Mark Sanchez and Tim Tebow are about to embark on their upcoming NFL season on Sept. 9 against the Buffalo Bills and HollywoodLife.com can tell you that emotions are running high on-and-off the field. Why? Because these two hunky 25-year-old quarterbacks are competing for time on the field and the Jets team is already seeing that the fans are going wild for Tebow.
The Jets lost on Aug. 26 against the Carolina Panthers but during this pre-season game one thing was apparent: fans were loving their new God-loving back up quarterback as they chanted: “Tebow, Tebow.” What’s so bad about that?
“Flat-out, there just can’t be two starring quarterbacks, it’s just not going to work,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com. “The team is on pins and needles, they feel like they’re about to go into battle. The guys are stressed, the wives are worried, everyone is just overwhelmed. Mark is the quarterback and a far better player than Tim. The Jets [franchise] brought Tim on to stir things up and they’re loving the attention that this is causing, the whole Hollywood dueling quarterbacks.”
The Jets signed Tim back in March after the Denver Broncos signed Peyton Manning to a 5-year, $96 million deal.
“This just sucks for Mark because he’s a great guy and he really leads the team,” a source tells us. “But Tim being there is just causing a lot of stress and it’s hard for Mark to focus. Everyone is saying that Tim was brought on to light a fire under Mark.”
So how are things going off the field?
“The team has had some team dinners and things were fine at training camp,” the source adds. “But Tim really keeps to himself. He’s not really going out much, not dating. He’s just so worried about what’s going to get out in the media that he really just does his own thing, he’s super guarded.”
The Jets have one more pre-season game against the Philadelphia Eagles on Aug. 30 and this is their final opportunity to re-group before the real NFL season starts.
“There’s going to be drama. This is a really stressful time,” the source says. “No one knows how this is going to work out.”
