New York Jets owner Woody Johnson told the media on Thursday that they’re going to evaluate quarterback Mark Sanchez just like any other player on the team.
“Mark is a player on the team,” Johnson said, via the New York Daily News. “We’re going to evaluate him as we do the other players. He’ll be evaluated just like anybody else.”
Then Johnson slightly changed his tune and said Sanchez is their franchise quarterback,
“He’s the starter,” Johnson said. “He’s part of a team. He makes his contribution as do all three elements of the team. It’s not about one player… It’s 53 players. This is a team sport.”
“He is our franchise quarterback,” Johnson added. “I don’t view him that way… That’s what he is.”
I’m still waiting for Johnson to come out and admit that he traded for Tim Tebow so his team would get more attention and that it was strictly a gimmick move that has now back fired.
I think I’m going to be waiting forever to hear him sat that.
