07:57 AM ET 04.19 | Michael Irvin has caught Tebowmania. The former Dallas Cowboys wide receiver and Pro Football Hall of Famer-turned NFL Network analyst had a message for New York Jets starting quarterback Mark Sanchez: You'd better play well, and you'd better play well immediately. Irvin spoke earnestly on NFL Total Access Tuesday, saying that if the Jets and their signal-caller falter in the opener against Buffalo and in Week 2 against the Steelers, The Playmaker could see Tim Tebow as the new starter by Week 3. The Jets have said over and over that Sanchez is the starter and that they plan to use Tebow in a variety of other ways, maybe even in the Wildcat offense, formerly run by Brad Smith (who is now with the Bills).

Won't matter after the J-E-T-S take Ryan Tannehill...

Thank goodness. I was hoping to get the latest on Tebow and the Jets.

So, now the word of Michael Irvin is being taken as Gospel?

Dang, whatever happened to Matthew, Mark, Luke and John?

Sounds about right.

I believe it. I can't wait for the drama and the cat fights this year. And that's just at the buffet table when Sexy Rexy is waiting in line and his linemen are taking the last of the ribs.

I can see lots of pouting coming from Sanchez too.

All summer long we've heard nothing but Luck and Tebow. Man am I sick of hearing about Luck and Tebow.

April 19, 2012  08:49 AM ET

Of course there has to be another Tebow thread

Summer?

But, you're right. I really wish we had more Billy Cundiff threads.

Yup Sanchez is the Jests starter just like Elway said Tebow would be the Broncos starter....votes of confidence never bode well....Tom Brady never needed a vote of confidence...

They took the SNL skit "Lowered Expectations" seriously

April 19, 2012  09:00 AM ET

How about we get a "Fire Goodell" thread going. That is the single most important threat to the league.

April 19, 2012  09:03 AM ET

Michael Irvin...he hasn't ODed yet, who listens to this Jackwagon?

That could be a song, and Elton John could sing it.
