Tebow wants Sanchez to succeed

Tim Tebow is currently the second-string quarterback for the New York Jets.

But he tells the GatorZone that he will not wish for current starter Mark Sanchez to falter in order for him to be the starting quarterback for the team.

“We have a great relationship, on and off the field. It’s really very easy to say I am rooting for him. I will not root against him. I wish him nothing but the best," Tebow said. "Now, that doesn’t mean I have to try any less, but I really think he’s done a great job. They’ve been in the AFC Championship Game twice he’s been there. He’s a good quarterback and he’ll continue to work hard and be the best he can.”

As for what he plans to do going forward with the Jets and in his career, Tebow says he needs to work on "Everything. This my third year and my third offense. That’s been a struggle. Eventually, I’ll know them all, hopefully. I think understanding offense very well, that’ll be a key. And just continuing to work on fundamentals. ... My biggest weakness has probably been fundamentals. The offense we ran at Florida, I had great fundamentals for that, with my feet. Now, being under center, play-action, seven-step drops, being in the pocket, it’s different. The great quarterbacks aren’t necessarily super-athletic, but they have great rhythm and timing because of their feet. ... Sometimes I want to go so fast, so having rhythm and timing is something I need to work on every day.”
