New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez said he is not worried that Tim Tebow might replace him as the team's starting quarterback.

Sanchez said via ESPNNewYork, that "I don't feel threatened to lose my job at all. 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."

But Sanchez has had his struggles, completing just 49.2 percent of his passes. The Jets were shut out Sunday at home against the San Francisco 49ers and have another tough test Monday night when they face the unbeaten Houston Texans.

As for Tebow, he insists he is not frustrated by his minimal role thus far with the Jets.

I mean, you get frustrated when you lose football games, so I think everyone in the locker room, when you lose games, you're a little frustrated, but I think that's natural," Tebow said. "Other than that, (I'm) just trying to work hard, get better and we're 2-2. The season's not over."
